Mike Huckabee Slams the 'Extreme Court' for Striking Down DOMA: VIDEO

Huckabee

On his FOX News show over the weekend, Mike Huckabee blasted the Supreme Court for going against the will of lawmakers and striking down DOMA. Huckabee went on to say that he's on the right side of history because marriage between a man and a woman has been around for much longer than gay marriage

"Same-sex marriage is newer than Google and the iPod!"

Added Huckabee:

"Despite the frothing of advocates to the contrary, I'm neither a homophobe nor a hater. I'm simple enough to believe that a marriage of one man and one woman not only is the only biological combination capable of creating the next generation, but in the context of a monogamous and committed relationship, it's the best context for children to learn how to replace their parents.

"If we’re determined to change the definition of marriage to accommodate how people feel and what they wish to do because of their mutual consent, then we should immediately release those incarcerated for practicing polygamy or bigamy. And, frankly, let’s make all consensual adult behaviors legal, whether prostitution, assisted suicide, or even drinking 16 ounce sodas in New York City."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. YES. Let's make ALL consensual adult activity legal. I know you're trying to be hyperbolic and ironic, but that you hit the nail on the head.

  2. Mr. Huckabee, I don't know whether you're a hater or not, but you're definitely a moron.

  3. Jesus wept ... for joy.

  4. I don't hate anybody, I just want laws put in place to discriminate against people who I consider to be second-class citizens. Stuff it, Huckleberry!

  5. Why does anyone pay attention to this moron? He believes angels guide his bullets when he hunts antelope. He rejects the silliness of science (including gravity), and described his education as "majoring in miracles, not math".

    On the other hand, his crazy irrationality just helps our cause more. His frothing arguments and linking of gay marriage to suicide and prostitution help any sane person with the ability to think critically realize the truth: Mike Huckabee is hatred.

  6. The world would be a better place if assisted suicide and prostitution were legal. As for the big sodas, I don't drink them, so I don't have an issue with them... Like if Huckabee is not planning to have a SSM, he really shouldn't have an issue with them.

  7. Mike, just because legalized gay marraige is a "new thing" doesn't mean that gay couples haven't been living in long-term committed relationships since FOREVER! Heck, Edie Winsor ( you know, the plaintive in the case you're blathering about) and her wife were together 40+ years. That's probably as long as you've been married.

  8. "...then we should immediately release those incarcerated for practicing polygamy or bigamy."

    Does the US (I assume that's what he means with "we") put people in jail for poly- or bigamy?!

  9. I wouldn't expect anything else from a man who advocated placing people living with HIV/AIDS in internment camps. Huckabee is a freak extraordinaire.

  10. Biblical & natural laws. No.
    'SELECTIVE' interpretation of biblical passages for an audience that won't take the time to understand your duplicity and a complete avoidance of how NATURE makes homosexuals not only in humans but in hundreds of animal species.

  11. He's not on the right side of history, he's history. He's the past. We're the future.

  12. Sorry Mike- you're full of it as usual. The latest Gallup Poll states that fully 55% of the American public back same-sex marriage. Only your fellow neanderthal republicans are bucking the trend, and still fighting what's right. But since your newly acquired status as the minority party is probably permanent- it doesn't matter.

  13. Technically he's right, he's not a homophobe OR a hater, he's proven that he's both.

  14. People like Grand Ol' Mike here surround themselves with ego stroking sycophants and obsess over causes that have absolutely no bearing on their lives. Their coddled minds wouldn't know what the real world thinks about ANY subject if Jesus himself confirmed it.

  15. Yeah, for Huckabee to say that "gay marriage is newer than the iPod" is both untrue and incredibly disingenuous. There have been gay pair-bonds throughout all of recorded history and that doesn't seem to have affected heterosexuality in the least. The ONLY difference here is giving legal recognition and protection to those relationships instead of the law pretending those couples are just "friends."

    And Huckabee IS a homophobe no matter what he'd like to believe. He's advocating legal disenfranchisement of gay people and that's pretty much the definition of the term. Because if that's the kind of friend he is to the gay community we don't need any enemies.

    And on a side topic, his time would be better spent keeping an eye on his sociopathic son who beat, stabbed, and hanged a stray dog at a Boy Scout camp when he was a counselor there!

  16. Mike, guess what: CIVIL marriage is only 500 years old. Plus or minus a few years.

  17. No word on whether former-governor, now just plain Reverend Huckabee, was equally outraged by the Supreme Court "overturning" the will of Congress by gutting the Voting Rights Act or by the Citizens United decision which voided 150 years of campaign finance laws.

  18. Blah blah blah... all I see is a fat old man wearing WAAAAAY too much make-up.

  19. They shouldn't let some people on the radio. Huck's one of them.

    They shouldn't let Pat Robertson on TV either.

  20. But I guess it WOULD have been okay if they had struck down ACA? What a hypocrite! It's the job of the courts to be a check on the executive and legislative branches. That means sometimes ruling laws and executive actions to be unconstitutional.

  21. If the SCOTUS had ruled against marriage equality it would have been "God's will". When they rule in favor of equality, they're "renegade judges" who are "redefining marriage for 300 million people".

    These GOP people are sad and all these fools will be laughable footnotes in history, if they're lucky enough for anyone to even remember their names.

  22. Smartphones are newer than same sex marriage. I bet he has a number of relationships with them throughout the years, sometimes concurrently too.

  23. If this clown would open his bible and actually read it, he would find it is FULL of plural marriages. So exactly where does this one man one woman idea come from? Certainly not their "holy" book.

    Posted by: Ted | Jul 2, 2013 11:03:06 AM


  24. What is so "extreme" about guaranteed equality under the law for tax-paying, law-abiding citizens? Huckabee is just another in a long list of obsolete crybabies who have lost absolutely nothing as a result of the SCOTUS ruling.

  25. Mike, if you have to keep saying you are neither a homophobe nor a hater, it might just mean that you are both, but that you just can't admit it to yourself.
