Newt Gingrich and his wife -- I mean, 9th(?) wife -- apparently host a website promoting their movie about radical Islam being a threat to the USA. Seeing a few points from this trailer, and what Gingrich said some time ago about Islamic law, it seems to me that this is some nonsensical attempt at drawing the wrong picture of the religion as a whole.

Anyone seen this? http://americaatrisk.com...

People need an enemy. What difference does it make whether its fascism, communism or islam. And from a standpoint of keeping hegemony and power, one doesn't want an ideology to gain too much influence.

No, you want your ideology to be influential.
