Huckabee IS Theocracy

Here’s one of the scariest YouTube videos ever. It shows exactly why Mike Huckabee is the most dangerous candidate. Warning: This video is extremely NSFA! (Not Safe For America)

    So, Huckabee wants to put god back into the US – the government and all our lives – whether we want it or not, if he has his way. Hmmm. In the 17th century, you had to belong to the Church of England or be persecuted. King James said: “I will make them conform themselves, or else I will harry them out of the land.”

    Jefferson wrote: “Our forefathers left their native land to seek on these shores a residence for civil and religious freedom.” Religious and Civil Freedom. The right to worship or NOT worship in any way a person chooses. The constitution was written, and approved by those escapees, to guarantee that right to us and to provide for separation of church and state because, I believe, they hoped to prevent history repeating itself. My ancestors came over on the Mayflower to escape religious persecution. It sounds to me like Huckabee is trying to turn back time. I don’t think my ancestors would appreciate that. I know I don’t.

    Damn, that music’s inspiring. Makes me wanna rush out and bash up some gays, shoot an abortion doctor, and vote Conservative. I’d vote GOP, but I’m not an American. That music made me wish I was, though.

  3. Jim A Says:

    You people don’t really think Huckabee had anything to do with putting out this Bible thumping evangelism, do you? It sure didn’t sound like his voice doing the preaching, and given that there are no credits, no attribution of any kind, and given the speed at which word of this video is getting around the leftwing blogs, it wouldn’t surprise me if it was a plant.

  4. Ron Britton Says:

    Yes. I am controlled by the vast leftwing conspiracy. I was told to put this video on my blog, or my membership would be revoked.

    Even if Huckabee himself didn’t make this video, it was almost certainly made by one of his supporters. There is a lot of “unofficial” campaign material being produced by both sides these days. If you don’t believe me, you aren’t a very swift boat.

    Wow. That was truly one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen. Every time Christians say or do something astoundingly stupid I’m tempted to think they can sink no lower, only to be proven wrong time and again. This is nothing less than a declaration of war against human intelligence. These people would happily embrace the kind of theocracy not seen since the Taliban. And they wonder why atheists are speaking out more stridently against religion these days. Jesus H. tap-dancing mother-fucking Christ. Does anyone here see a Federal Bureau of Christianity in our future if this clown becomes president? I wouldn’t bet against it.

    Jim A., you are a moron if you don’t think that was Huckabee speaking in that video. I watch the news. I’ve heard him speak. And don’t be so surprised that “left-wing blogs” are picking up on this. Free thinking people are rightly alarmed at such vomit-inducing rhetoric, and for once are paying attention in far more substantial numbers to what these candidates are saying. After 8 disastrous years of George Bush, we had better pay attention, or Christian warnings of America’s decline will become a self-fufilling prophecy. No, more religion in our politics is not the answer. We’ve had enough of gay-hating, science-stifling, sexually paranoid policies to last us a generation. Huckabee represents the dark side of human nature, despite his nice-guy persona. The more I hear garbage like this, the more thankful I am I’m an atheist.

    Huckabye? He’s toast I think. Huckabee seems to want fundamentalism. It could never happen, even if Huckabilly really wanted to do it.

    I don’t think he does, he just wants the votes from those he thinks want one. I don’t think most of them really want it that much either. He’s not stupid enough to want to try to do it as POTUS, he’s just stupid enough to say it when he’s campaigning.

    Huckleberry is too conservative on religion and too liberal on criminals and the economy and immigration.

    Huckabye? Huckabee wants to have adulterers, homosexuals and rape victims stoned to death. He also wants to make alcohol and music videos illegal, and make women 2nd class citizens and to take all girls out of school.

    Oops, my bad, that’s another ‘religion’.

    Hey, anybody but the PIAPS!

    if you’re MAD
    punish your country
    VOTE for Hillary

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    elect women presidents

    who cover for their husbands
    who rape other women

    This is an old topic, but I thought this would be a funny point to add.

    He talks about the Republicans being conservative and all about keeping things the way they are…but the founding of the party was radical and all for giving the blacks their rights after the civil war! They were the liberals of that day and age!

    Seriously…He doesn’t even know on what premises his own party was founded on!

  8. Parrotlover77 Says:

    Sarah – very few modern Republicans understand that Lincoln was liberal. About the only thing that was “conservative” about him was his desire to “conserve” the union. On the flip side, those who romanticize the confederacy (which despite what they say — that slavery was not the key issue — really WAS formed for the primary purpose of the right to continue to own humans for free slave labor, just read the confederate constitution), are most likely these days to be Republican. My, how times have changed.

  9. Sue Blue Says:

    “Huckabee wants adulterers, homosexuals and rape victims stoned to death” – but not the ones he can pardon to make a Democrat look bad. Those he can let out to rape and murder – and it’s okay, because morality for the Huckster is always defined by political expediency. Make no mistake, Suckabee, like all the other fundagelicals, is nothing more than a con man pimping religion for bucks.

  10. Sarah Says:

    Parrot: I know, which is what I hate about the party. Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of either side because the Dems always just seem to be there…and do nothing except take up some rant time. Of course with this radical conservative shift with the republicans, there is no way I am going to register as one when I turn 18…

    Still…you should have seen the look on my face when my humanities teacher said “Yup, that’s right. They were practically liberal”

    Kinda sad…we’ve come to an age where the only thing that republicans are really known for is being conservative…

  11. Parrotlover77 Says:

    “Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of either side because the Dems always just seem to be there…and do nothing except take up some rant time.”

    That’s what the mainstream media would like you to think. You were pretty young, I suppose, during the Clinton years, but with the exception of NAFTA succeeding and Hillary’s healthcare plan failing, they were relatively prosporous well-goverened years. The main complaining during that time was from the new Republican congressional majority over who blows the president. Ugh. Contract with America, my ass. Contract to destroy America.

    It should also be noted that nearly everything on Pelosi’s “100 days” plan was passed on time, but then vetoed by the Bush. So it’s very important to realize that the Democats try to get a lot done, but the Republicans are always doing everything they can to stop them. Remember the nuclear option for ending a fillibuster? How many times have the Democrats threatened it? Oh yea, ZERO. They play fair, and for that, they are blamed for being ineffective. But that’s what happens when the majority of the media is controlled by transnational corporations who profit greatly when our country is at war and in despair, which requires the Republicans to truly get it done right.

    Now, mind you, I’m not saying that all Democrats are saints. There are many problems with the party and many of our representatives — particularly the “old guard” which is responsible for a lot of how the Republicans were able to get away with corruption for SO long. But it is important to look at the totality of what is going on here. To say they are “do nothing” is completely false. Remember who has veto power. And remember who does NOT have a super-majority to override said veto. And remember who never sides with the Democrats to achieve the supermajority.

    Saying they have faults which requires political participation to fix is much more accurate. I know I’m doing everything I can to push back against the blue dogs (the conservative democrats).

  12. Sarah Says:

    I don’t remember much about the politics of the Clinton years, but looking back at the records, those were definitely good years. (Especially comparing the world of my childhood to how things are now…the economy now is in total shambles)

    However I still think that they should have tried harder. Anyone can make a lot of noise and so long as someone is there to hear it, it will be heard. If they had at least raised the issue more, they could have at least gotten more attention. (I believe it was William Proxmire who raised the issue of genocide in the senate over 3000 times, once every meeting because he felt it was important. He was one man doing this and he managed to get them to care. It took forever…but still…the effort was obviously there)

    I usually just watch ‘Hardball’ or BBC after all, because most of our news concerns are pretty biased. I remember that poor girl Megan Williams’ story was flashed a couple of times on the evening news…and then a few months later the shooting at Virginia Tech gets an entire month of reports, interviews etc. The same happened with a poor disabled girl…hardly any coverage.

    Unless it effects a lot of people (and in a short amount of time so that it’s a pretty big shock), it almost never makes the news…but most of those issues are gradual and so we don’t really notice them unless we look back upon better years and say ‘Hey…wait a minute…’

    I do know that the Dems aren’t all bad and that some of them are trying their hardest, but like I mentioned above…the very least they could do is make some noise.

  13. Parrotlover77 Says:

    Ah you touched on the issue right there with, “[a]nyone can make a lot of noise and so long as someone is there to hear it, it will be heard.”

    You see, if nobody is there to hear it, does the proverbial tree still make a noise? We will never know, because when Democrats were the congressional minority, somebody with both hands and feet amptutated could count the number of times the mainstream media reported on press conferences held by the Democrats. Compare that to now with the Republicans in the minority. They all get AT LEAST equal footing with Pelosi and Reid (note: I will concede Harry Reid is a tool). Plus, you have Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, and many other leading Republican bobbleheads all over the media as paid pundits now. Whereas the Democratic pundits on the media payroll are always very lousy debators and often concede to Republicans (Alan Colmes being the prime example — although he’s a bit better now that he’s no longer the minority, who cares because he failed when it counted).

    The Democrats had… Keith Olbermann. He’s excellent, but he’s one small voice drowned out by the mega machine that is the Republican punditry.
