CNN Crossfire host Newt Gingrich blamed the rise of “liberal fascism on campuses,” for the recent cancellations of commencement addresses by Somalian activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice.
After expressing his outrage during the aptly named "Outrage of the Day" segment, Gingrich deftly turned his ire on the hypocritical media and their lack of concern over the obvious free speech ramifications of a handful student bullies silencing voices they don't approve of.
“But the real outrage is an elite media that would have been screaming if right-wing groups had done this to a Somali woman and an African-American woman,” Gingrich said. “And yet, they have been overwhelmingly silent.”
Gingrich also expressed dismay over New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's silence in light of the the controversy occurring at one of his state's public universities. “I’m, frankly, a little disappointed that Gov. Chris Christie did not do anything to stand up to the Rutgers faculty, who are paid by the taxpayers of New Jersey.”
