Mike Huckabee, onetime Governor of Arkansas and occasional Republican candidate for President of the United States, has sunk to a new low, even for a hatemonger as prolific as he has been throughout his checkered career.
Huckabee is traveling around the United States and Europe with dozens of conservative ministers on what he bills as “Mike Huckabee’s Reagan, Thatcher, Pope John Paul II Tour.” The purpose of this traveling lunatic show is, according to Huckabee, to make people aware that America is turning into Nazi Germany under the leadership of President Obama and other elected Democratic officials.
First of all, I wonder if Mr. Huckabee has any idea just how offensive such a statement is to those who had to endure the murderous regime of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis at the height of their power. Does he not understand that Holocaust survivors and their families are belittled and injured by such remarks? Or is he so hungry for political power that he doesn’t care who he offends or wounds?
Secondly, does Huckabee really believe the United States, even on its worst day (and we have had more than a few of those in our history) is in anyway comparable to the German National Socialists who exterminated some 10 million people they disagreed with politically or religiously? If so, then perhaps it’s time for him to cancel his return ticket and remain in Europe where he can continue to spout this kind of sewage.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly considering that Mr. Huckabee is a minister by trade, is he unaware that one of the Ten Commandments states, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”? Is it not a form of disobeying this commandment to even mention the name of the President of the United States in the same breath with that of a bloodthirsty madman who made lampshades out of human skin?
It is time for Mike Huckabee to repent of his lies and turn away from the misinformation he is spreading. Do I think he will? No, I don’t. Why? Because he has a TV show on Fox News to promote and is probably going to run for the GOP nomination again. So the truth is expendable to Huckabee and his ilk. God is not pleased, and the souls of tens of millions of war dead from the Second World War are also deeply offended. If nothing else, Mike Huckabee owes them an apology.
