Mike Huckabee Defends Child Molester Josh Duggar But Calls Obama A Fake Christian

Mike Huckabee
Former Governor Mike Huckabee, the guy who defended serial sexual abuser Josh Duggar, accused President Obama of pretending to be a Christian.

While speaking to Newsmax TV for “The Hard Line”, Huckabee was asked about opponent Ben Carson’s comments that a Muslim shouldn’t be President.

The Republican should be rewarded for getting the first part right, as unlike many of his fellow Republicans, he understands that there is actually no religious test for office. But then came the Obama pivot, and you know when Republicans talk about Obama, they start frothing at the mouth and saying incoherent, hateful things. And Huckabee has it bad.

Listen here, h/t to CNN:

So Huckabee pivoted to Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin Republican world, where vague suggestions are built into truths by playing fallacy games. Huckabee started off by saying that he isn’t concerned about what faith a person is, he’s more concerned about the “authenticity of their faith and how that plays out in their politics.”

So, Obama isn’t an authentic Christian, and Huckabee perhaps feels qualified to make this call because as a buddy of child sexual abusers, he has been anointed. If there is one thing that says Jesus, it’s taking advantage of the weak and defenseless, after all.

But wait, lest you think I’m jumping the gun, he continued. “I’m also concerned about a guy that believes he’s a Christian and pretends to be and then says he is, but then does things that makes it very difficult for people to practice their Christian faith.”

Ohhhh. President Obama is making it hard for Mike Huckabee to practice his Christian faith. Well, that’s as good an excuse as “the dog ate my homework”, I guess. Dear God, don’t blame Mike. It’s Obama’s fault!

Now what in the world makes Mike Huckabee feel that Obama is ruining the Christian faith? Hang on to your hats. It’s the WAY Obama is. The way he invited the Pope into his home and then actually had the Pope meet with people who might not follow the same faith.

Don’t look now, but Mike Huckabee is not a Catholic. He’s a Southern Baptist. So maybe he shouldn’t be talking about or to the Pope. Or President Obama. Shhhhhh.

“I’m disappointed if someone says, ‘I’m a Christian’, but you invite the pope into your home and then you invite a whole bunch of people who are at odds with the Catholic Church policy,” Huckabee said, metaphorically completing the Glenn Beck chalkboard circles known to finish Republican arguments. ”

I think there’s something very unseemly about that,” Huckabee concluded, laying claim to moral high ground.

Mike Huckabee knows the Republican version of Christianity. After all, he led “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”

But this version of Christianity is not shared by all Christians, so perhaps Huckabee would have been well served to take a cue from President Obama, who values inclusion and respect. Maybe Mike Huckabee should have invited some people to his house who don’t agree with him that hate is a family value. Maybe Mike Huckabee should have invited victims of child sexual assault to his house before he defended a serial abuser.

Mike Huckabee thinks being a Christian is about exclusion. He thinks it’s about only talking to people who agree with you. Which is sort of the opposite of what the Bible teaches.

Mike Huckabee has a super bad case of Obama Derangement Syndrome, which can be seen in all of the Republican Party’s biggest losers. Huckabee is starting to froth in impotent rage, which is never a good sign for a presidential candidate. It usually means that quitting is right around the corner.

But hey, God, it’s Obama’s fault!

  1. Who cares what Huck says. It is all the same drivel day after day. He can just keep running for president until his little heart is content.

  2. You notice that every time something doesn’t go the way they want it, they blame Obama for it like he was their personal scapegoat.

    It’s bad enough that he’s more willing to defend a molester then the President, but to say that he isn’t a Christian is just insane. The President is a legitimate Christian, not a faker posing as a Christian only to spew their ways of hate, anger and division.

  3. Fuckabee is one of the biggest fake Christians in the republican party. He will never be president and his hatred for anyone who isn’t a monster like him is disgusting. He can’t fade away fast enough for me.

  4. Huckleberry is not a godly man. He is a hate mongering xtian fraud. He does not belong on any kind of national stage. For him to criticize the President today just shows what an ignorant hick he is.

  5. Repigs get worse by the hour…each time they are ‘on mic’ they say nasty shit and lie continually about President Obama.

    It has been 6-1/2 years of hearing nothing but hate and division and the country is sick of it.

  6. President Obama has more humanity, compassion and humility in his pinkie than Huckster would ever have in a lifetime.

  7. Huckabee needs to get off the national stage, no one wants to hear want he has to say. Talk about politican as a profession. He should quit milking this cash cow.

  8. Huckabee and his Xtian buddies are responsible for turning droves of people away from Christianity. I was raised in the Christian church, but today I want nothing to do with a religion that promotes such insane bigotry, narrow mindedness, and judgement. They are the ones who have waged the war on Christianity.

  9. Huckabee is a grifter. Period. End. Of. Story.

    He’s a political Kardashian that states controversial comments in the national dialog to get media attention, and to leverage that press coverage to fundraise. He’s not even a serious candidate, never has been, and never will be.

    I don’t even see him as a christian, just Ted Nugents backup bassist.

  10. Huckabee wants to see face of a fake Christian he just needs to take a gander in the nearest mirror and he still is UNQUALIFIED to be our next president! Maybe he needs just hang out with child molesting buddy, Josh Depraved dugger!

  11. In the Twenty-First Century I have learned to recoil at the mere mention of two things: Christians and fetuses.

  12. “I’m also concerned about a guy that believes he’s a Christian and pretends to be and then says he is, but then does things that makes it very difficult for people to practice their Christian faith.”

    Oh, like (damn near) every Republican in office? They all love to scream about “God God Bible Bible Jesus!”, and then pass legislation that does the exact opposite of what Jesus taught/The Bible says. And no one is making it hard to practice any faith. Oh wait, the religious zealots are. They’re making it hard for anyone that doesn’t subscribe to their beliefs to get married or practice their faith (they certainly aren’t fond of Muslims, are they)

  13. It has dawned on me that the major source of Huckabee’s problems with same-sex marriage and religious liberty isn’t PBO but the founders who created the Constitution. Since he can’t dig them up and confront them about what they included in the Constitution that he disagrees with, he has decided to blame PBO. I’ve reached the conclusion that Huckabee is not only a staunch Christian authoritarian, he’s a truly deranged individual.

  14. Am I the only one who is amused that the entire Republican field (shallow though it may be) seems to be running against someone who cannot, constitutionally, run again for President? They must think it’s still 2011 and President Obama will be running against them next fall in 2012.

  15. I think when all is said and done, and Obama leaves office once and for all, many books will be written about his Presidency and the unprecedented amount of hate and vitriol directed at him by right wingers. Historians will look back on these 8 years as a successful presidency that managed to improve America’s economic outlook despite Republican intransigence and opposition.

    And historians will write about a certain governor named Mike Huckabee who became inextricably linked to one Kentucky bigot named Kim Davis. And the two will go down in history as possibly the worst people in America.

    Good luck with the future Mike. You’re gonna need it.

  16. President Obama will be revered far into the future. He’ll appear in any definitive narrative of the early 21st century. (Unless some future dictator rewrites history to smear him, as Henry VII did to Richard III.)

    Huckabee will be a mere footnote in some future history books dealing with state governments, presidential elections, and violations of the First Amendment.

    Kim Davis will be nothing more than a trivia question on quiz shows for a few years, before fading into total obscurity. Unless memory of her survives as a meme, eg:

    Someone who refuses to perform essential job duties is kimdavising.

    Someone is so kimdavis (hypocritical) to refuse to eat meat but still go deer hunting every fall.

    You’re getting all kimdavis (sanctimonious) when you make religious objections to someone else drinking beer.

    You’re making a kimdavis plea when you claim to be a victim while you’re oppressing someone else.

  17. Please – not all Christians are batshit-crazy fundamentalists. Some of us are genuinely nice, intelligent people. We just don’t make the headlines.

  18. Well, the Benghazi thing pretty much fizzled out and the private server thing isn’t really catching on, so they’re resorting back to bashing the President as a last resort. When they can fabricate another Hillary scandal, they’ll be back to attacking her on the new made up scandal.

  19. Huckabee has always been a fraud, what with his support of the evil draft dodger that walked around wearing his own feces – Nugent, and raising kids who tortured and killed animals, then managed to get his son
    off prosecution. How about the diet books and how he was lecturing people about
    exercise and diet. How about his new book, I think it is about how to cure diabetes
    (I’m not sure on that one) but he is a snake oil salesman and a low life.

  20. Well Mike You do not have to worry because I am pretty sure the Pope will not be coming to Your house any time soon. Mike You have run off the rails and lost your way. My bible says Judge not less You be judged?

  21. It’s the ole “Your a Christian only if you believe the way I believe” mantra of the far right.

    Jeeze Louise Huck that is why there is the separation of Church & State clause. Because not all Christians believe the same. Which also allows peoples of other faiths or none to believe & worship as they want or not.

  22. Judge not lest ye be judged. Matthew 7. Oh, wait, these pious “Christians” don’t read the New Testament. The Huckster’s sell-by date is long gone.

  23. Mr. Huckabee: “When you point your finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.”
    Noone knows the human heart, only God. Especially not Huckabee, Palin, Beck and others of the same ilk.

  24. He and his ilk are no Christians. They just wear the word on their sleeves but do not practice one bit of it. Their belief is rooted that reciting a few words makes them Christians. They forgot to read a few lines ahead. Good deeds alone may not save you but they want to only justify their actions by sitting perpetually on their hands and do nothing but criticise and condemn everyone who does not agree with them. Huckabuck is as fake as they come. It’s all about the money for th or own self. They build their personal empires on the sad people who fall for them. Just say the word Jesus and a certain group open their wallets. It’s those who think the easy way to salvation is giving to false prophets.

  25. #42, I doubt that he has a reflection at all! Bloodsucking parasites like him have no need for mirrors. And besides if he did have a reflection he most likely see’s an image of his god and not the sub-human mongrel that really stands there. Is your screen name a homage to Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

  26. Extreme Christian fundamentalists. Extreme Muslim fundamentalists. Same thing. A perversion of the faith they profess to support. True believers follow the golden rule in all religions.

  27. Mike Huckabee, your pseudo-Christianity is more empty today, than before. After hearing Pope Francis speak, carefully listening to and weighing his words, observing his humility and following his actions, the difference between a man who KNOWS Jesus as opposed to one who speaks as you do, is obvious!

    Your actions speak loudly of your fraud.

    You want respect? You need to start living your faith and don’t open your mouth unless you have the principles of Jesus in mind and in your heart.

    Remember, out of the mouth comes what is in the heart.

    BTW, this is a great article!

  28. Mike Huckabee loves a good sex scandal, Duggars incest/porn, close friend of PTL leaders Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker. He likes to defend sexual deviants as well as animal mutilators.

  29. If Jesus did come to earth Mike Huckabee would try to starve the poor man/God to death. Huckabee is a lying, perverse sort of man who wishes to be thought of as a godly man but is not. Who exactly invented the Jesus these RWNJs worship? Jesus was big on poor people. These thugs think poor people should starve. The party of birth and war, birth and war. Birth and war keeps them boys happy and feeling good. This whole crew of right wingers would be absolutely hated by the founding fathers they claim to revere but wait, they just made up new founding fathers that just LOVED the incomprehensible dogma of modern churchyness. What would poor Jesus think. “my Heavenly Father these men have a church that is Christians against Christ” is how it would go. Huckster failing fast, what, 3% and holding or therabouts. good on ya Mike. Now fade away with Kim D.

  30. How about Huck(ster) bee?HeMrs Davis is just an example. It’s like the proverbial ambulance chaser. Running after what will give him media attention.When Huck (ster) bee swears on a bible
    what are his intentions??? Is the Bible of any significance when one raises the right hand, left on the Bible? Davis is a hypocrite!
