What's "Controversial" About This?

I'm no fan of Gingrich for a variety of reasons.

But Althouse posted this remark of his, using MediaMatters' 'controversial' label:

Discussing actions by individual protesters of Proposition 8, Newt Gingrich stated: "I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion."

That's the facts, folks.  There's no controversy here at all.

Replace "gay and secular fascism" with "radical Christian minority" (aka St. Revolution).

Replace "traditional religion" with "rule by the secular majority".
