Newt Gingrich, distinguished professor of history and reigning intellectual heavyweight of the Republican Party, explains how crafty Muslims are trying to exploit the ignorance of liberal American elites:
The proposed “Cordoba House” overlooking the World Trade Center site—where a group of jihadists killed over 3000 Americans and destroyed one of our most famous landmarks—is a test of the timidity, passivity and historic ignorance of American elites. For example, most of them don’t understand that “Cordoba House” is a deliberately insulting term. It refers to the Chrysler Cordoba, a car made famous by a foreign kind of Mexican man who touted its un-American “soft Corinthian leather.” […I]n fact, every Islamist in the world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of soft Corinthian leather. It is a sign of their contempt for Americans and their confidence in our historic ignorance that they would deliberately insult us this way.
Well, at first I thought Newt had to be kidding, but then I did some historical research, and guess what? He’s completely right! Check out the Islamomexicanian accent and music that was used to sell “this small Chrysler” to an unsuspecting American market:
You can fool some of the people some of the time, Islamists. But you can’t fool our Newt—not now, not tomorrow, not even in the middle ages.
No to Cordoba House. No to secret Islamist insults. And no, a thousand times no, to soft Corinthian leather.
