Huckabee: Don't Be "Ridiculous"

This guy really just can't STFU, can he? Here's former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, still on his world tour of gay-hatin', stopping by Fox News to play concern troll and let all of us whiny bitchez know that we're being "ridiculous" for objecting to Obama's selection of huge homobigot Pastor Rick Warren to do the inaugural invocation.

Greta Van Susteren: All right, let me—let me jump to another topic, which you probably weren't expecting, um, is that, uh, President-Elect Obama has chosen Rick Warren to give the invocation—and there are a lot of, uh, a lot of gay Americans very upset. What do you make of this?

Mike Huckabee: Well, it's ridiculous for people to be upset at Rick Warren—he's one of the most influential spiritual leaders of this generation. I've known Rick for over 30 years. We were actually in seminary together in Fort Worth, Texas, back in the, uh, mid-1970s. He is today what he always has been, and that's a humble, gracious, thoughtful, very intellectually capable person.
I love how it's just "gay Americans" who are pissed off, according to Fox. Erasing allies is such a useful marginalization tactic, helpfully suggesting that there's no principle behind the outrage; just a bunch of hysterics playing identity politics for shits and grins.

Fine, Fox—make me queer, if you like. But next time you do a report on "Teh Gay Menace," I want to see that percentage of the population number bumped up to at least 25%.
