The Freak Show for Ken Cuccinelli Continues: Mike Huckabee Comes to Town!


Just when you think there aren’t any more extremist freaks left to campaign for Ken Cuccinelli – Mark Levin, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, the Duggars, etc. – another one pops up. Now, it’s Mike Huckabee. Why do I call Mike Huckabee an extremist freak? Let us count the ways.

*”Mike Huckabee is strongly opposed to abortion, including in cases of rape or incest. He has stated that abortion should be legal only when the life of the mother is at risk. He believes that it would ‘most certainly’ be a good day for America if Roe v. Wade were repealed...He stated the Supreme Court ruling, Roe v Wade, had created a ‘holocaust of liberalized abortion.'”

*”Huckabee has said that embryonic stem cell research creates life only to end a life.”

*”Huckabee has voiced his support for self-defense and the Castle Doctrine, and has generally taken an anti-gun control stance.”

*”Huckabee stated in 1992, ‘I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk’…Huckabee said that legalizing same-sex marriage would ‘be like saying, well, there are a lot of people who like to use drugs so let’s go ahead and accommodate those who want to use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, should we accommodate them?’

*”Huckabee has voiced his support of intelligent design and he has stated that he does not accept the validity of Darwin’s theory of evolution.”

*Huckabee has also statedcomparing his weight loss to the experience of a concentration camp, for which the National Jewish Democratic Council chastised Huckabee;” “joking about suicide while speaking of fundraising efforts by himself and his opponents in the Republican primaries, for which he was criticized by various suicide awareness groups;” and in 2012 provoking “controversy by claiming that the Newtown shooting was because ‘we systematically removed God from our schools.'” Oh, and he also “compare[d] Muslims to ‘uncorked animals’ because Islam “promotes the most murderous mayhem’.”

*Last but not least, Huckabee is climate science denier, for instance falsely (and bizarrely) claiming that “[t]he volcano that erupted over in Northern Europe actually poured more CO2 into the air in that single act of nature than all of humans have in something like the past 100 years.”

In sum, Mike Huckabee is a right-wing extremist and stark-raving mad. Which, come to think of it, means he will get along superbly well with Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson and Mark Obenshain. Party on, boys!

    Huckabee is just another member of the Tea Party rogues gallery supporting Cuccinelli.

    It has not gone unnoticed how his former state partners, Bob McDonnell and Bill Bolling, now treat him like a leper…

    The 19 Duggars are coming to town this weekend to campaign for Cooch.  That should put him on top in the polls and rocket him into the governor’s mansion.

    The Duggar family from the TLC series “19 Kids and Counting” is planning a three-day bus tour starting Monday. The Duggars will make stops in Lynchburg, Richmond, Virginia Beach, Fredericksburg and Woodbridge in support of Cuccinelli, the father of seven.

    The tour is sponsored by Family Research Council Action. The executive director of the conservative advocacy group is 25-year-old Josh Duggar, the oldest of the 19 Duggar children. He, his wife and their own three children recently moved to the D.C. area, a transition chronicled on the family’s show.

    The Duggar family is familiar with the campaign trail: They publicly campaigned for former Sen. Rick Santorum in the 2012 presidential election, and family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar served as an Arkansas state representative from 1999 to 2003. He lost a primary bid for the U.S. Senate in 2002.
