Newt Gingrich, Chinese Communist Agent?

You have to wonder about your views when they coincide with Dana Rohrabacher. Anyway, he has tossed Newt into the hall of shame:

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., said in his opening statement during a Tuesday hearing of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Human Rights. Democrats and other Republicans also piled on Gingrich for "fear-mongering" and allegedly peddling Chinese propaganda.

The issue, of course, is what to do about the Uighurs who have been wrongfully imprisoned in Guantanamo.

Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Mass., the committee's chairman, said that Gingrich is either misinformed or intentionally circulating false information about the 17 Uighurs to "appease the Communist Chinese,"

And here I thought Obama was the appeaser. Sometimes I think Newt may not be as sharp as he's made out to be. I realize he's a sleaze, but underneath that he is supposed to be one of the intellectual giants of the GOP. When the right wing of the party says you're spreading ChiCom propaganda, you may want to re-think your position.

"Many if not all of the negative allegations against the Uighurs can be traced back to Chinese intelligence, whose purpose is to snuff out an independence movement that challenges the communist bosses in China," Rohrabacher said at Tuesday's hearing.
