Mike Huckabee: Forever Terrible

[Content Note: Homophobia; Christian Supremacy.]

Former Arkansas governor, failed presidential candidate, and all-around garbage-making machine Mike Huckabee wants to run for president again in 2016. And, if his recent public appearances are any indication, he's fixing to run on a platform of NOBODY HATES THE GAYS AND ABORTION LADIES MORE THAN I DO. (ALSO BROWN PEOPLE!)

Mike Huckabee campaign banner I created, featuring a picture of Mike Huckabee with his jacket thrown over his shoulder and text reading: 'Mike Huckabee: He hates all the same shit you do!' with ticked boxes for: The gays, abortion ladies, swarthy types, and arugula.

Yesterday, his focus was hating on same-sex couples, because it was the one-year anniversary of a Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage. Huckabee was the final speaker at a protest at the Capitol which brought out fully DOZENS of passionate straight people whose lives are definitely being totes destroyed by same-sex marriage.
"Judicial supremacy is a curse upon this great Republic," he told the crowd at the rally, organized in part by the National Organization for Marriage, calling the Supreme Court rulings the "greatest heresy of our time."
Sooooo he's protesting "judicial supremacy" at the Supreme Court. Okay. Next stop: Protesting taco supremacy at Taco Bell, home of the Taco Supreme.
He went on to argue that the president and Congress were not required to redefine what he deemed natural laws — including marriage — no matter what rulings "nine people in robes" might hand down from the bench.

"The government doesn't give us our rights," he said. "The government only has the responsibility to protect the rights God gave us."
This is laughable. It is wrong in every conceivable way. And while Huckabee yammers on like some kind of martyr about the "supremacy" of meting out the tiniest bit of equality for a marginalized population, he meanwhile advocates actual, real, practical Christian Supremacy.

And then he has the gall to flash his Gomer Pyle grin and say he's all about love. Fuck off, dominionist.

FYI: Rick Santorum was also there, talking a bunch of contemptible rubbish as usual, but I've already given enough time to these fuckos.
