Gingrich: Texas Is For Real Americans, San Francisco For Transvestite Exorcists And Nancy Pelosi (VIDEO)
San Francisco is a city of diversity and the people who live in, or around, the city wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s something for everyone. Sure, there’s a vibrant LGBT population. There are also free thinkers. There are intellectuals. There is a lot of weirdness. There are people who like to have fun, but there is the Financial District. There are shipyards. There are many, many businesses, both conservative and liberal. There are hundreds of thousands of hardworking people, both blue and white collar. There are small business owners. There are venture capitalists. There are Giants fans, 49er fans and NASCAR fans. There are people who sip wine and people who drink beer. Yes, there are Democrats and Socialists, but there are also Republicans and Libertarians. In other words, like all American cities, San Francisco is a microcosm of America. Yet, Republicans love to make San Francisco out to be the epicenter of all that is wrong with America; a place devoid of morality and, more significantly, the place that elected Republican Public Enemy Number Two, Nancy Pelosi. It’s not a new meme. Gingrich has used the term “San Francisco values” for years and the connotation is anything but wholesome. Last month, Newt Gingrich had this to say about Pelosi and her home city:
“She lives in a San Francisco environment of strange fantasies and strange understandings of reality,” he said in response to claims that Pelosi knows potentially damaging secrets about his past. “I have no idea what’s in Nancy Pelosi’s head. If she knows something, spit it out. Tell us what it is. I have no idea what she’s talking about.”
Gingrich elaborated on his comments by relaying this story to a San Francisco Chronicle reporter:
“I’ll tell you a true story,” the former House Speaker began. “I’m here in 1984 and I’m part of a truth squad. It’s at the convention. … And we’re down at Union Square and CBS is interviewing me and this guy tosses me this perfect softball: ‘The Republicans are going to Dallas, which has the largest Baptist church in the country. Democrats are going to San Francisco, which has the largest gay movement in the country. Does this say something about the two parties?’”
“Literally, at that moment a 6-foot-2 transvestite walks up and hands me an invitation to an exorcism of Jerry Falwell,” Gingrich recalled. “I just cite that as some vague — I really mean the Sierra Club, which has gone off the deep end as a general rule. Basically very, very left-wing values.”
It turns out that there was actually a mock exorcism of Jerry Falwell done that weekend, by LGBT activists Sister Boom Boom and five members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. To me, it sounds like a great party. To Gingrich, it sounds like immorality. His religion performs actual exorcisms on real people. In San Francisco, they symbolically exorcise one of the nation’s leading bigots. Potato. Potahto.
