Mike Huckabee: Religious Zealot Sinks His Own Campaign


fuckabeeThis was originally posted on 6/26/2015 on my previous site, but I believe Mike Huckabee hasn’t been criticized enough for his statements.

Governor Mike Huckabee has been raging across Twitter ever since God created the Earth in seven days against the Obergefell v. Hodges case in the Supreme Court, which ruled in a 5-4 agreement towards legalizing gay marriage across all 50 states. Of course, an extremist, right wing, hypocrite like Mike Huckabee is sure to be angry at such a progressive movement, which at this point has around 60% popular opinion in the states, making it the majority. However, go look at any other Republican Presidential Candidate twitter feed. You’ll see somewhere around zero to four responses towards the final verdict, none of which are as strongly worded as Governor Huckabee’s. 

Now, Huckabee, I’m sure you’ve read the Constitution and American History textbooks almost as much as you’ve read the Holy Bible (very little, based on exactly what you chant and rave about constantly), but the Supreme Court was created so that separation of powers could actually create a stabilized, central government for America. The Articles of Confederation, the predecessor to the Constitution itself, lacked this and was therefore thrown over by the Federalists, who were much more politically favored than the Anti-Federalists at the time.

You fail to realize that the Supreme Court was created not as a supreme being, as one of your ignorant tweets claim, but as a separation of power which stopped the Legislative Branch — the branch YOU are apart of, as I GUARANTEE your asinine and blatantly obsolete tweets alongside your terrible political history will prevent you from entering the Executive Branch as President of the United States — from becoming the overwhelming TYRANT of government. Your own words are one hundred and ten percent based in the wrong arena, Huckabee.

America can’t bow down to religious extremists or zealots either. You’re shoving your religion down America’s throat, which is exactly labeled as unconstitutional in our government.

Huckabee, you’re failing to realize, as I’ve stated before, that around 60% of the American public (according to multiple polls done by The Wall Street Journal (an overall CONSERVATIVE-based newspaper), The Human Rights Campaign, and CNN) actually agree with the stance agreed upon by the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court based their final decision not upon their personal beliefs, but the overall support of the American people, like they are supposed to! Notice the striking similarities between the American public and the Supreme Court: a 60-40 split and a 5-4 judgement.

Oh, but you fail to realize how little the other candidates are acting around this. Any smart politician understands that in order to keep their polls up and their jobs alive, they have to actually represent the people, and not their religion. Also, might I add that the President, Barack Obama, heavily supports this.

We must resist 2nd century words and 20th century ideology in order to progress. You’re sounding exactly like the people who were against black and white school integration. What side of history do you wish to fall under, Huckabee?

Oh, but the Supreme Court is when it comes to American Government. Do you even understand how your job works? I get the failed attempt at a pun here is, that the Supreme Court is not God. This response alone is enough to understand you are only reading the points of the Constitution you agree with, just like you do with the Bible when it comes to your “stance” on multiple other topics.

What about the four that voted against it? Exactly, focus on the people who disagree with you with such hatred that the people who agree with you are too sad to admit it. If five judges can’t allow an entire subsection of American culture to marry, who the fuck gave you the right to place such hatred upon them?

Didn’t the Church disagree with scientific discoveries like gravity for the longest time? Also, try using a new scientific theory that you and your religious zealot friends are repealing, such as evolution.

WHO  gave you the right to declare the Supreme Court unconstitutional? I’m sorry, I thought it was the Supreme Court’s job to decide upon what laws were considered unconstitutional, not yours. Your job is apparently sitting down in your campaign office on the phone with your child molesting friends as you prevent progress from occurring!

Very divided? 5-4? How about how 60% of the American people support this? That is clearly not divided, that is a majority.

Congratulations on repeating everything you’ve said multiple times, without supporting any evidence and without answering any questions or responding to any backlash. You are the only candidate making this big of a deal over social media, leaving everyone believing that you are too attached to the issue and have some problems to reconsider. As many twitter responses have claimed, you are just an old man yelling at the clouds in hopes of leaving 60% of the American population in the dark just because of your personal life. Mr. Mike Fuckabee, your presidential chances were very slim (and that is a very, very large exaggeration) to begin with. Now they are left at none. Go back to your book tour, you can resign from the primaries now.
