1968 Changed The World

Mike Huckabee Makes Up Gay History

Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and The View‘s Sherri Shepherd would get on swimmingly.

Shepherd, of course, thinks history begins with Christ’s blessed birth – a belief we’re sure Huckabee holds close to his heart. Huckabee, meanwhile, offers a queer view of homosexual relations. Via The Plank, who found it in the NY Times profile on Huckabee:

The governor regards 1968 as the dawning of ‘‘the age of the birth-control pill, free love, gay sex, the drug culture and reckless disregard for standards.’’

So, does that mean people born before 1968 just woke up gay one day? Freaky!

    So whatever did all those poor homosexuals do with each other prior to 1968’s dawning of gay sex?? Fuss over window treatments all night? Poor dear things…

  • Jim Provenzano

    Yep, that whole Grecian and Spartan epoch was just a bit of male bonding.

    Newsflash: Huckabee’s rube base, which theoretically COULD make him the next president, aren’t exactly Mensa members. Of course they believe stuff like that.

    This is all bullshit. I created homosexuality in
    1962 while Upchuckabee was still fucking his goats.

    Someday Genre is going to write a story me inventing gay and they are going to put a photo of a hunky guy on the cover and pretend it is me.

    He might be on to something. It was in 1968 that my dad got rid of our TV.

    I think that growing up without TV made me gay.

    Thank you Jack, I really REALLY appreciate your invention of gay sex!

    Republicans, Conservatives and Fundamental Christians


    ‘If by a liberal’ John F. Kennedy.

    If you were given a choice….which world would you live in?

    Most Republicans, Conservatives and Fundamental Christians, could be legally and most certainly psychiatrically and medically, diagnosed as Sociopaths and/or Psychopaths. Not only that, but these people are Capitalistic Imperialistic Terrorists who should be removed from America, they are ruining the United States of America, and they are ruining the World.

    “….if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties.. if that is what they mean by a “liberal” then I am proud to be a liberal. ” ~ John F. Kennedy

    Psst, hey Fuckabee… you were about a year off from the momentous gayness that was the Stonewall Riots of 1969. But gay sex has been going on for centuries, probably since Cain and Abel frotted just before Cain killed Abel.

    If it was ’68, then I should take some of the blame for all the faggotry that has ensued; that being the blessed year of my birth. So everything prior to ’68 should be referred to at B.F. and everything after as A.F.

  • thatguyfromboston

    P.S. I meant credit not blame.

  • SteveS

    According to the quote, he said 1968 was the “dawning of an age of…”.

    He’s not saying gay sex was invented in 1968, he’s saying that is when it came into the mainstream.

    That’s how I interpret it, anyway.
