Maybe I should start another blog dedicated to all the fucked up, batshit insane stuff Mike Huckabee says on the regular. Each utterance eclipses the last in its stupidity and delusion. He speaks for the lowest common denominator in this country. That’s Mike’s strategy to take the White House. Either that or he’s just another grifter trying to pocket some money from the crazies who dig what he believes. It’s most likely the latter; after all, the race could be one big book tour for Huck.
So what’s he up to today? Ah. Proclaiming Judge Dredd-style death sentences on burglars:
Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee was in New Hampshire to speak at the Republican Leadership Summit and while he was there, he sat down for an interview with conservative activist Kimberly Morin of the Manchester Political Buzz Examiner.
Huckabee went on to say that the only way to protect that freedom that he loves so much is “if we are able to outgun whoever wants to take that away from me,” warning that if somebody breaks into his house, “there will be a gunfight involved in that and I plan to win.”
“Yes, I will still call 911,” he added, “but it’s not going to be to call to helplessly wait as a victim while somebody ravages my family or my home. I call 911 to tell them where to come pick up the body of the son of a gun who broke into my house in the middle of the night”:
Amusing, since this kind of vigilante justice is illegal in his home state. Advocating for gun violence is pathetic, irresponsible and morally indefensible. Yet there are probably tens of thousands of people who subscribe to this kind of extreme philosophy. We’ve already seen too many instances where standing your ground looks a whole lot like summary execution.
Fuck Mike Huckabee. He should be elected mayor of an asylum rather than president.
