Newt Gingrich To Occupy Wall Streeters: “Go Get A Job After You Take A Bath”
Sure to please the far-right base, Newt Gingrich told Occupy Wall Streeters off Saturday night. He spoke at a debate sponsored by Family Leader. This is the group that asked candidates to sign a pledge that said children were better off under slavery than they are today. (Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum signed). Notably absent from the event were Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney.
Gingrich argued that Occupy movement was grounded in entitlement– “all the Occupy movement starts with the premise that we all owe them everything.” With that in mind, Gingrich explained that their point was to “self-righteously explain that they are the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything,” which was indicative of “how the left has collapsed as a moral system.” Gingrich concluded with a flourish that the group needs to “go get a job after you take a bath” to raucous applause, and the praise of federal candidate Herman Cain.Click here for reuse options!
