In an interview dated June 15, 2016, Newt Gingrich indicated that he is calling for a creation of a new, updated version of the House of Un-American Activities Committee. Mr. Gingrich believes that if this new version of a House of Un-American Activities Committee comes to fruition, this committee will stem, even stop terrorism from ISIS & other radical Muslims. Remember, there was a House of Un-American Activities Committee in the 1950s under Joseph McCarthy who singled out Americans whom he believed deviated from typical American ethos & values. If Hillary Clinton wins the Presidency, there WON'T be any new, revised House of Un-American Activities Committee. However, if Donald Trump wins the President, there could be a revision of this committee. YOUR thoughts on the matter?
One more lame idea of something that should be ALREADY in place with at least one of the ,what , 15 different federal policing agencies ? Typical political solution to a problem , Create another agency . That's working out really well with the DHLS , the ATF, the FBI , The CIA , don't forget the TSA , the DOD , No wonder the present American voting public despises the U.S. congress' and senate !
Here's what I found:

Gingrich is a brilliant guy but unfortunately comes across as a demagogue. You have to read through the headline.
Gingrich is starting us down the slippery slope toward fascism. He and Trump are trying to make it sound rational and palatable. I say that Gingrich and his ideas smack of Joe McCarthy.
Are Anglo males forced to keep an eye of the Timothy McVeigh types and be held more accountable for the behavior of such? That line of reasoning is what they proposed for Muslim groups.
For the progressives, this form of harrassment is dead in the water. And Gingrich is hardly brilliant to think that a return to the atmosphere of the 'red scare' is going to solve our problems.

Joe McCarthy, who was supported by the John Birch Society (the old Tea Party) thought a communist was under every rock. He hurt many innocent people until he was disgraced in the House and died a broken and drunken idiot.
