Mike Huckabee Calls On ‘Spiritual Warriors’ To Risk Losing Their Jobs To Fight Gay Marriage

There is actually something called the Rediscover God in America Conference? HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS! I want to rediscover God. In America! In fact, I’m willing to just discover God the one time, no need to re-do it for me. Could I get a discount on my conference pass this way? Anyhow. Speaking at the Iowa event yesterday, heterosexual troop absolutist Mike Huckabee told the crowd that it’s up to “spiritual warriors” to ensure this nation does not “fall to the hand of those who would enslave us.” He’s talking about you, fags! We’re dealing with the classic battle of good vs. evil, and we must defend things that are “holy and that are pure and that are just.” Like Chick-fil-A’s spicy chicken sandwiches. Oh, and marriage only for breeders. Even if it means “possibly” losing your jobs.

    Maybe you could have posted more Huckabee quotes for those of us who don’t waste time with video?

    What you didn’t see was the vicious butt fucking he had with a catholic priest backstage after his BS speech.

  • Evan Foster

    I’m not gay, but I really don’t understand all this anger against gay men. Let them live their lives as they wish for god’s sake!

  • Disgusted Gay American

    Fuckabee is gettin FAT again…..GLUTTONY is a SIN mike.

  • BenFrankly

    This is why he will never be President of the United States. These foolish evangelical types that think they are going to ride this old horse to the White House. Its laughable. Once again they have misjudged the American people. This also true for those who didn’t do what hey were elected to do – put America’s fiscal house in order instead of worrying about nonsense like defending DOMA.

    I feel like I should prepare my defenses for the next crusade…

  • Bobby the Four Year Old

    Say what you will, queens, the bigots are willing to sacrifice for their beliefs, no matter how backwards they are. We’re willing to… donate a dollar? sign a meaningless petition? send a meaningless email? vote for Democrats who turn around and shit on us?

    Doing it the Gay Inc way is a dead end failure. It’s time to get back to our Stonewall and Gay Liberation Front roots and know that those who ask politely for rights while bigots are willing to die to keep you from them will never work.

    Lobbying for rights from politicians who drop bombs on innocent people in a heartbeat is pretty foolish. Down with the HRC Generation. Long live the Glee Generation! As Chris Colfer said in his acceptance speech, SCREW THAT!

  • Jonathonz

    Newsflash Huckabee: Marriage will always mean a union between a man and a woman for life. It’s just that now it includes the reality that gay men and women form unions for life too. You’re on the losing side of history loser.

  • Jonathonz

    Why is it that all the dudes that spout this right-wing crap look like big babies? Beck, Limbaugh, Huckabee, Helms. They’re all big, round babies. Just an observation.

  • Ken

    How nice. Of course, I can’t help but notice that it’s not like Mikey-boy there ever has to put his job on the line or make any sacrifices -that’s for the little people.

    (To his credit, unlike Newt Gingrich, at he least Huckabee stuck by his wife when she was diagnosed with cancer and, to my knowledge, has remained loving and faithful to both her and his vows. I still think he’s still wrong about marriage though.)

  • McMike

    @Jonathonz: Yeah, if you’ll notice all the anti-gay men in the media are FAT AND UGLY. Go figure.

    btw, when your marriage produced a child which tortures and hangs a dog then you might want to look WTF kind of sanctity you’re involved with.

  • ewe

    Huckabee is a grotesque human being. He feels that if he yells and screams his homophobic bigotry loud and long enough, he will get a national television show. In his mind, the only way to get rich is to threaten more hate speech while secretly putting out there his willingness to back off and calm down if he gets a weekly tv platform. He can go fuck himself along with Pat Buchanan who tried the same damn thing.

  • ewe

    “Spriritual warriors”? That whole concept is hypocrisy. Huckabee is a gODDless charlatan.

  • the crustybastard

    So Huckabee’s declaring anti-gay jihad?


  • reason

    @BenFrankly: When has the GOP every put Americas fiscal house in order? Regan was the king of deficit spending, and lets not even get started on Bush II. They yell loudly about deficits but when they are in power they run it up, anyone that still believes they are for fiscal constraint is hopeless. The only reason they are cutting the budget is becuase they see it as a way to cripple things the democrats are trying to accomplish, when they get in they can spend it on things they want to accomplish like huge tax breaks to the top one percent, welfare to big oil, and no bid contract rewards for shoddy performance. Always found it strange how they give heavily to defense contractors for pie in the sky weapons systems, then cut funding for scientific researchers who develop the new technologies that the defense contractors use. Sounds more like a person that is trying to enrich their buddies rather than protect the country.

    @McMike: Thanks for reminding us of that, McMike. No one should take advice of any kind from a man who raised a dog murderer.

    A more interesting explanation might be found at http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-sci-politics10sep10,0,2687256.story which describes some research on the differences between the brains of liberals versus conservatives:

    “In a simple experiment reported today in the journal Nature Neuroscience, scientists at New York University and UCLA show that political orientation is related to differences in how the brain processes information.

    “Previous psychological studies have found that conservatives tend to be more structured and persistent in their judgments whereas liberals are more open to new experiences. The latest study found those traits are not confined to political situations but also influence everyday decisions.”

    Huckabee may simply be trapped by the limitations of his brain.

  • Soupy

    As a Canadian, I’m always amazed how politicians in the states can gain traction with fundamentalism. If a politician in Canada kept referring to God’s role in his life and morality, most Canadians would think he was a wacko and it would hurt his campaign. We’ve had catholics, protestants and now one “born again” PM, but they never discuss it publicly. It’s just considered in poor taste.

  • Mike

    @Ewe: My grandparents are big Fox News fanatics, and rest assured that grotesque Mike Huckabee does have a show (or did) on Saturday evenings.

  • TheRealAdam

    @Soupy: Yes, it’s very similar in Western Europe. It’s considered very distasteful to mention religious beliefs like that.

    The U.S. is a very backwards place in many respects.

  • Jeff K.

    I hope he dies alone.

  • Atomicrob

    Yes, these religious zealots are the Western equivalent of the Taliban. America is NOT a theocracy, nor is it a “Christian” nation.

    Let the spiritual warriors as he calls them loose their jobs– all of them and quickly. Huck can go to the front of the line.

  • robert in NYC

    Soup, I agree. Its also the same in the UK, no religious wacko could run for office and get elected even though it has a state cult. The Brits would laugh at it.

    Reason….there have been more deficits under a GOP government than there have under the Democrats. When a republican president leaves office, you can bet there will be a huge deficit which they will claim was the fault of the democrats. Look what happened under Clinton, left office with a huge net surplus and what did dumbass Bush do, spend, spend spend, borrow, borrow, borrow, live now, pay later. That’s what the GOP is all about, greed and to hell with the people. All they care about are the corporatist elite funding them up the kazoo, squeezing the middle class on the way. If they cared about the people and jobs, why do they think shipping manufacturing jobs overseas is ok and where is orangeman Boehner’s jobs bill? if giving the biggest tax breaks to the wealthiest is supposed to help the economy, then were are those trickle down jobs that they’re supposed to create? Where are they Boehner?

  • Jim Hlavac

    I feel so important! We should all feel so important. I mean, all of these guys, Newt, Huckabee, etc and the rest are just positive that the lynchpin to civilization is we gay guys. If it wasn’t for us being around to pick on, why, the whole thing might come flying apart. Apparently stomping on gay guys is the glue that holds it all together. And for him to worry about us 20,000,000 or less taking over 300,000,000 or more people, and holding them all hostage, why, what power! We’ve got ’em surrounded and we’re not letting them out. Don’t we?

    Well, we already “stole” the word gay didn’t we? I really don’t mind them saying this crud, for a good bit of fiction makes good comedy reading, but at least they can thank us every once in a while for being so important to the nation and their own roles, jobs and finances, and the Republican resurgence. Without us, what would they talk about? What would Bryan Fischer do for a living? Is he qualified for anything other than gay bashing? Hmm.

  • Soupy

    Republicans and teabaggers represent the enshrinement and endorsement of stupidity. They cater to it.

  • justiceontherocks

    Maybe he and Newt can debate whether marriage is between one man and one woman for life.

    This reminds me of a Doonesberry strip in which some pandering political operative, trying to whitewash a politician’s sexual improprieties, says, “That is private. It is between a man and woman and another woman. And sometimes there is one more woman.”

    For these rabid christians to be so fervently anti-gay, they sure seem to emulate Truman Capote-esque characteristics.

  • Jeffree

    When Huckabee refers to “Spiritual Warriors” I think he means Christian warriors, not Hindu, Sikh, Jewish or Muslim warriors…. He should be more precise!

    –Abdullah el-Shamas: “Mister Huckabee, I respond to your call for a Jihad!
    –Chunkabee: “Which church do you attend?”
    –Abdullah: “The Islamic Center of New Jersey”
    –Chunkabee: “Golly, you’re not really what I was lookjn’ for….We’re talking ’bout the Tin Comman’ments, not the Koran….”
    –Abdullah: “But I am a man of God”
    –Chunkabee: “Wrong God, mister. Move on.”

  • B

    re No. 37 · Jeffree: “–Abdullah: “But I am a man of God” –Chunkabee: “Wrong God, mister. Move on.””

    The funny thing is that I can imagine a fundamentalist like Huckabee say that, not realizing that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the same deity (the word “allah” simply means “god” in Arabic). They differ with regard to the status of two individuals: who’s a prophet and who isn’t, plus a celestial parentage question and which books are sacred and which aren’t.

  • Jeffree

    @B: I suspect that level of knowledge about other faiths may be beyond Huckabee’s grasp…. But let’s not forget that at least two states have tried/ are trying to ban sharia law from being used!

  • B

    Re No 40, “But let’s not forget that at least two states have tried/ are trying to ban sharia law from being used!”

    And I thought the 1st Amendment prevented sharia law from being imposed on us by the state, except in Utah where they have their own version of it! I guess the right wing needs to make up another threat to keep people scared to the point where they will accept anything marketed as a way to save them.
