Raw Story reports:
Former Congressman Newt Gingrich (R-GA) was hammered on Saturday night for attacking Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Twitter, saying the Black lawmaker is participating in a “lynch mob” out to get controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). It did not go unnoticed that former Georgia politician cited only two women of color in his attack in his defense of the white Taylor Greene.
AOC (152,661 votes) and Maxine Waters (152,272 votes) are part of lynch mob trying to destroy Congresswoman Marjorie Greene (229,827 votes).they should calm down and read the history of John Wilkes in the 1770s and the principle that the people’s vote matters more than parliament

While you’re doing math Newt, why do you still have millions in campaign debt from your 2012 campaign? https://t.co/a0CQuuupnw

A historian claiming women of color are lynching a white woman is [chef’s kiss].

You called an African American woman and a Latina a *lynch mob*.
You really did that. Right out in the open.

Lynch mob = insurrectionists.
Lynch mob = the GOP that refuses to acknowledge Biden won the election even though he got way more votes
Lynch mob = Marjorie Taylor Greene. Her violent videos tell us that.
Lynch mob = Newt Gingrich who wants to keep MTG cuz she is bringing in money

The “lynch mob” was who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6th, they erected a noose on the West lawn & repeatedly called Black USCP niggers. These are the so called patriots you are defending. You are as treasonous in your defense of them as you are ignorant. https://t.co/7Dn9FpW5wa
