Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich dropped some bombshells on Tuesday during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham about a growing problem for President Joe Biden that could cost him the 2024 election.

Gingrich was addressing the mounting, chaotic anti-Semitic, anti-Jewish protests on Ivy League campuses like Columbia University in New York City and Yale University and said Biden’s got a problem with trying to court both sides of the issue. He also addressed what Biden should instruct his Department of Homeland Security to do with any non-citizens caught on those campuses protesting on behalf of Hamas.

“Newt, everything we’re seeing right now, it kind of reminds me a little bit of the ramp-up to what we saw in 2020. I’m not talking about the death of, you know, of an African-American at the hands of a cop. But tensions are running high. Are you concerned that this could morph into something bigger and more dangerous?” Ingraham asked.

“Well, look, I think it’s already big enough and dangerous enough. I’m reminded of then-Governor Reagan dealing with the students at Berkeley, ultimately calling out the National Guard, taking control, insisting on law and order,” Gingrich began.

“I look at these university presidents who are cowards. The whole idea that Columbia can’t guarantee safety, that the rabbi encouraged Jewish students to go home because he thought it was physically dangerous. Yale has lost partial control. You go down the list,” he said.

“There are clear steps that can be taken. People that violate the rules can be expelled. People who are there who are not U.S. citizens can be deported. We do not want to run a risk of the gradual rise of essentially a Nazi-like anti-Jewish movement, and that’s what it is,” he continued.

“This is largely driven by anti-Semitism, and all across the country, it is Jewish Americans who are being faced with a level of discrimination. As one said to me yesterday, his grandparents came here seeking a country with a wooden face, a program in Russia,” he noted further. “They would’ve faced the Holocaust in Germany, and now he is watching the signs start once again. I think we have to be very tough and very direct that we’re not going to tolerate this kind of anti-Semitism.
