Godless liberals and a few conservatives come together on Twitter to mock Newt Gingrich's Muslim ban.
As news about the terror attack in Nice, France, reached Fox News, Newt Gingrich reacted on air with Sean Hannity. His comments—"let me be as blunt and as direct as I can be"— quickly enflamed the internet, as a bipartisan contingent of thoughtful writers and ruthless comedians alike took umbrage at Gingrich's proposals:
Western civilization is in a war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door. But we need to be fairly relentless about defining who are enemies are.
We've noted who's who with each tweet, in case it wasn't glaringly obvious.

Did Gingrich just suggest American citizens should be deported based on their religious beliefs? How exactly does that work?— David Marcus (@BlueBoxDave) July 15, 2016

Curious: Is Newt proposing Congress enact unconstitutional law, or that president act unconstitutionally on his own? https://t.co/6drR1v7T5a— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) July 15, 2016
