Newt who called President Obama a socialist in the title of his awfal 20110 book To Save America: Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine is getting a taste of his own preposterous smear. is putting out the alarm that its really Newt who is a Marxist and a Socialist.

Charles Krauthammer, a reliable bellwether who can always be depended on to be 100% wrong about every single thing he writes about, is calling Gingrich a "Socialist". Krauthammer declared Newt's attack on Romney is 'What You'd Expect From Socialist'.

Now Conn Carroll Senior Editorial Writer at the Washington Examiner goes even further calling Newt a "Marxist".

George Will was wrong: Newt Gingrich IS a Marxist

Two weeks ago, George Will wrote a column  in which he said Newt Gingrich "would have made a marvelous Marxist." At the time, it seemed a little over the top, but Gingrich managed to prove Will right yesterday when he leveled this attack Mitt Romney:

Romney and Gingrich, from bad to worse

I would just say that if Gov. Romney would like to give back all of the money he's earned from bankrupting companies and laying off employees over his years at Bain, that I would be glad to listen to him.

These are not the words of a conservative who believes in the free market system. This is the world view of a socialist bent on redistributing wealth.

 The Republican far right is so desperate to have a nominee from the Tea Part wing of the Republican Party that they've turned their ridicules, over used Socialist/Marxist flame thrower on Gingrich. Newt is a lot of things, but being a Socialist or a Marxist isn't one of them by any stretch of the imagination.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
