>> JON, LET'S JUST SAY IT,

THAT IS SOME RACIST BULL

[BLEEP].

I MEAN IT IS 2012.

WHAT TOOK HIM SO LONG.

>> Jon: WAIT, ARE YOU UP SET

HE HASN'T MADE RACIST

REMARKS SOONER.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF HIS

REMARKS WERE RACIST, THAT'S

JUST NEWT BEING

CONDESCENDINGING AND DICKISH

OR AS HE CALLS IT, TALKING.

WHAT'S RACIST IS HIS TIMING.

IT TOOK GINGRICH UNTIL NOW

TO BE CONDESCENDING AND

DICKISH TO BLACK PEOPLE?

FIVE YEARS AGO HE WAS

ALREADY DOING THIS TO

HISPANICS.

>> WE SHOULD REPLACE

BILINGUAL EDUCATION WITH

IMMERSION IN ENGLISH SO THEY

LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF

PROSPERITY, NOT THE LANGUAGE

OF LIVING IN A GHETTO.

>> I NEVER HEARD HIM SAY

THAT ABOUT RAT MUSIC OR

EBONICS, WHAT, OUR LANGUAGE

OF LIVING IN THE GHETTO

ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR HIM?

>> Jon: CAN I JUST GO BACK

FOR A SECOND.

DID YOU JUST SAY SPANISH WAS

THE LANGUAGE OF THE GHETTO?

>> OH, NO, BUT HE APOLOGIZED

IN BROKEN GHETTO LANGUAGE.

>> SPEAKING SPANISH).

>> YEAH.

IN THE CRAPPIEST SPANISH

EVER, THAT GUY ALREADY

PATRONIZED AND APOLOGISED TO

HISPANICS BEFORE HE EVER GOT

AROUND TO INSULTING BLACK

PEOPLE!

>> Jon: BUT, BUT ISN'T THAT

IN AND OF ITSELF BY IGNORING

BLACK PEOPLE INSULTING AND

PATRONIZING.

>> NO, DON'T TRY AND MAKE ME

FEEL BETTER.

THIS GUY HAS BEEN A DICK TO

GAYS, OTHER REPUBLICANS,

SCIENCE, WOMEN.

>> TALKING ABOUT BEING IN

COMBAT.

WHAT IS COMBAT MEAN?

IF COMBAT MEANS LIVING IN A

DITCH, FEMALES HAVE

BIOLOGICAL PROBLEMS STAYING

IN A DITCH FOR 30 DAYS.

BECAUSE THEY GET INFECTIONS.

>> RIGHT, RIGHT, WOMEN ARE

TOO FRAIL TO SERVE IN THE

MILITARY.

THIS COMING FROM A GUY WHO

PROBABLY CAN'T GET OUT OF A

POOL BY HIMSELF.

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> I MEAN LOOK, HE WAS

CONDESCENDING AND DICKISH TO

A CERTAIN PEOPLE THREE

MONTHS BEFORE GOING AFTER

BLACK PEOPLE.

>> AND I THINK THAT WE HAVE

HADN'T INVENTED PALESTINIAN

PEOPLE WHO-- WERE

HISTORICALLY PART OF THE

ARAB COMMUNITY.

>> HE DOESN'T THINK

PALESTINIAN PEOPLE EXIST,

JON!

I MEAN I'M SURPRISED THE GUY

DIDN'T [BLEEP] SMURFS BEFORE

THINKING BLACK PEOPLE ARE

WORTHY OF HIS DISDAIN.

>> Jon: WYATT, MAYBE HE IS

JUST SAVING THE BEST FOR

LAST.

>> NO, NO, HUH-UH, WE HAVE

WORKED TOO HARD AND COME TOO

FAR TO NOT HAVE SOMEONE TELL

US WE DIDN'T WORK HARD

ENOUGH.

NO.

BLACK PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE

TO SIT AT THE BACK OF THE

BUS WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO

CALL US LAZY FOR BEING AT

THE BACK OF THE BUS.

>> Jon: THANK YOU, WYATT.
