Contemporary liberalism is akin to a “secular religion,” which the left sees as “divinely inspired by their brains,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News on Monday.
On “The Ingraham Angle,” host Laura Ingraham noted that Democrats don’t seem likely to veer to the center before the upcoming midterm elections.
“If you consider what we see as fundamentally a secular religion, they have no room for negotiation. They can’t,” Gingrich said.
“What they do, they think they’re somehow divinely inspired by their own brains. They can’t back down. Theodore White warned about this in 1972, when he said that ideology liberal had become liberal theology – it’s 1972. Everything got worse.

Gingrich further pointed to a recent Democracy Institute poll showing that more respondents think Joe Biden leaving office would be better for America’s future than ousting Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin.
“I think if you were a Democrat, that number would be very, very sobering. But it doesn’t seem to have any effect now,” Gingrich said.
