Newt Gingrich vs. Mario Savio circa Dec 2, 1964 - UC Davis Pepper Spray & UC Berkley Assault
You can tell by the name, this video dives into several of the top events of the current protests. 3 weeks before Newt Gingrich started to break out of the pack in the second week of December, the 5things Film crew shot this piece based on our prediction Newt would become the lead contender for the Republican presidential nomination. Which he did. That is until the Romney money machine took him apart (again) in the Florida primary and effectively finished him off.
We nicely juxtapose Newt Gingrich with the UC Davis peper spray incident and the clubbing of peaceful students by campus police at UC Berkeley. Also, there is a nice surprise at the end.
P.S. We deliberately held onto releasing this video until the moment when Newt "popped" which he officially did this past 7 days!
