Mike Huckabee Horrified That Gay Couples Are In TV Commercials

Mike Huckabee, erstwhile minister, former Arkansas governor and failed Presidential candidate, loves to appear on TV. He just hates sharing it with the gays. In his latest rant, during an appearance on a Concerned Women for America radio show, the Fox News talking head complained about being forced to take note of the appearance of gay couples on the small screen. And it’s all the fault of marriage equality. Of course.

“[T]this is why the legalization of same-sex marriage is going to be a much bigger issue than just saying we let people love whoever they want to love, that’s not the issue,” Huckabee fumed. “Will it force businesses, of course everyone will say, ‘Oh no people still have their rights,’ but they don’t. And every fear that people had has in fact come true, that this is being forced in textbooks on how marriage is depicted, we’re now even seeing television commercials portraying same-sex couples, that’s something I guess I didn’t expect to see anytime soon.”

Television commercials! Where will it end? Next thing you know they’ll be living next door and there goes the neighborhood.

And thanks for pointing out to us, Mike, that there are bigger issues than love at stake here. There’s the right of business to discriminate. Always good to see Republicans looking out for core principles.

      Sorry Huck, business aren’t allowed to discriminate. Being from the south that still must really bother you.

      Huckabee is a joke. Failed presidential attempt. Failed daytime talk show attempt. Dieting/weightloss fails. He has very little pull In America. A shame he can’t just let it go.

      I only have 4 letter word followed by a 3 letter word to him. My blood boils to think he says this. Just after my 35 yr old friend wanted to take his life because his own mother tried to pray his gay away and it did not work so she wants nothing to do with him. The hurt was like nothing I have never seen. Thank god a I have a loving family.

      I’m horrified that Mike Huckabee ever got involved in politics. I’m horrified that people voted FOR him. I horrified knowing that he is a perverted, misaligned, hateful and ungrateful homophobic person in life who rants about other people’s lifestyles and I’m horrified that “God” has made him “one of his lost little lambs.” What a crock of s**t for a soul. Why is he even…here…at all?

      Huckabee, I don’t want to think about what you do in bed either. I also don’t want to know about heterosexual who abandon their spouses, abuse children, conceive unwanted children, commit adultery….stop demonizing a minority to advance your own political agenda and improve the sexual and social behavior of straight people. You are a hypocrite.

      Perhaps Huckabee should be more concerned about his own family. After all his son was fired from his job as a camp councilor after hanging a dog from a tree and torturing it to death.

      I’m too tired tonight. Thanks, Cam, for reminding us of the dog torturing son of a Huck.

      Knew this snake oil salesman when he was pastor of my parents’ church and wouldn’t have pissed on him if was on fire even then. He is a media whore, plain and simple. Someone else mentioned several of his “fails” and it barely scratched the surface. He would sell his own mother if it might mean another five minutes of national attention. I wish media sources would put Huckabee, Palin, Bachmann, and all the rest into a box and never again show them the light of day. Our world would be so much the better for it.

      I feel sorry for anyone who, after all these years, is still living with “delusions of adequacy”. He’s just too stupid to recognize, let alone accept, that he has no relevance to the real world.

      IKEA has had same-sex couples in commercials before same-sex marriage was legal in any state. It’s all through their catalog. I wish they were more available in all cities to support. Maybe they could send Huckabee one of their catalogs.

      This comments this man made are both laughable and sad. It makes me laugh that people do not stop and think about the crowd that he was in front of during this tirade. It saddens me STILL, eight years later, mind you, that he almost got the republican nod for the 08′ presidential race. Huck had dropped OUT of the race in Pa, but so many people were turned off to McCain that 275,000 of them voted for Huck ANYWAY in the primary. Now that is scary. Interesting how he has NEVER said how the country would be looking had McCain/Palin won, even though McCain/Palin’s ex-staff campaign members are saying the MISTAKE would have been BIBLICAL.

      HEY! HUCK! Are you really still around? It has been so long that I have heard about you, I figured you had been sent out to pasture.

      Me thinks that the man(???)doth protest too much. Ever think that he has a REPRESSED gay syndrome and still is WAY deep in the closet ???? Individuals that ‘rant and rave’ about SOMETHING are usually HIDING the VERY thing they are ‘ranting and raving’ about. Just a thought ……….
