Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him for allegedly violating copyrights by playing “Eye of the Tiger” at campaign events.Stealing the intellectual property of others is a classic Republican move. Mainly, because Republicans lack the necessary brain matter to create intellectual property. But, when asked and told to stop stealing the property of others Republicans act as they always do, they keep on stealing.
The federal lawsuit filed recently by Rude Music Inc. contends Gingrich has used the song since 2009 to herald his arrival at public events.
The lawsuit asks for an injunction to prevent Gingrich from using the song, as well as damages and attorneys' fees.
So, the same Newt who said repeatedly,
"The courts have been trying to impose an elitist value system on a country that is inherently not elitist.”now wants a Federal Judge to dismiss a lawsuit against him.
This really illustrates the absolute lack of character and principle of Newt Gingrich. Because in December of last year, Newtradamus declared he foresaw a future were President Gingrich would send the U.S. Capitol Police or U.S. Marshals to arrest judges and force them to testify before his Tribunal if they made decisions disagreeable to Gingrich. He would then remove the judges based solely on their rulings. Newtradamus even went so far as saying as President he might ignore a Supreme Court ruling if it held gays and lesbians had the right to marry.
To call Newt Gingrich a hypocrite is unfair because people might get the idea that Gingrich actually possessed principles in the first place. The only principle Gingrich cares about is what can make him the most money.
But, it shows that as Michele Bachmann might say, Gingrich "has a lot of choots-pah." While, Newtradamus remains the ignorant conservative's ideal of a smart man because Newt's Judge Removal Plan is at odds with the US Constitution, the document Right-Wingers supposedly revere.
