Gingrich: Kagan 'Disqualified' from Court

Sunday, 16 May 2010 09:51 PM

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan "should be disqualified" from a position on the country's highest court, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Glenn Beck Saturday at a meeting of the National Rifle Association.

Gingrich said Kagan tried to bar military recruiters from the Harvard Law School campus when she was the dean there during the gathering in Charlotte, N.C., The Charlotte Observer reported.

"That is an act so unbecoming an American that she should be disqualified," Gingrich said.

Gingrich and Beck both urged the estimated crowd of 10,000 people at the event to vote in November for candidates who supported a conservative agenda.

"We have to think of something because the Titanic is going down. We need to save the passengers, that's what we need to worry about," Beck told the crowd.

"Your mission is to organize at every level ... and to simply, decisively beat all of the [liberal-leaning candidates] and get this country back on track," Gingrich said.

Gingrich also drew loud applause when he talked about the right to bear arms: "It's not in defense of hunting, it's not in defense of target shooting or collecting. The Second Amendment is defense of freedom from the state."
