Mike Huckabee Is 'Utterly Disgusted' With Republicans, Calls on GOP to 'Grow a Spine' And Oppose Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Huckabee4

He's not letting the GOP's tepid response to the SCOTUS gay marriage decision go just yet.

Said Huckabee on his Fox News program Saturday:

"I'm utterly disgusted with fellow Republicans who want to walk away from the issue of judicial supremacy just because it's politically volatile. Here's my advice - grow a spine! Show a modicum of knowledge about the way we govern ourselves. And lead, follow, or get the heck out of the way."

The cry of "judicial supremacy," coming from the same guy who said it was a "good day for freedom" when the Supreme Court gave corporations more religious freedom than taxpayers

NOM Echoes Mike Huckabee's Threat to Leave the GOP Over It's Non-Response to the SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision

Joining the chorus of anti-gay, right-wing voices enraged at the Republican Party's largely non-existent response to Monday's Supreme Court gay marriage decision, NOM President Brian Brown is now backing up Mike Huckabee's threat to abandon the GOP.

Said Brown:

Brown"We are grateful for those leaders who have spoken out to condemn the Supreme Court for their unprincipled and outrageous decision to allow the redefinition of marriage to occur in these states. We are prepared to work tirelessly to support them and others who lead in the fight to preserve marriage. But Governor Huckabee is right. If more Republican leaders do not speak up and join the fight, then millions of conservatives will abandon them and join with officials who will fight. Marriage is on the line in our country, and it's time for people to get off the bench and into the battle."

Brown went on to criticize House Speaker John Boehner and the National Republican Campaign Committee for throwing their support behind openly GOP congressional candidates Carl DeMaio and Richard Tisei.

Wingnut Mat Staver Says A Third Political Party Is Needed to Stop Gay Marriage, Like With Slavery: AUDIO

Mat staver

Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver, the wingnut who previously said gay marriage was a direct attack on God, is so mad at the Republican Party's tepid response to the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision on Monday that he thinks a third political party will be necessary to lead the fight against LGBT equality.

Right Wing Watch reports:

Staver told Greg Corombos of Radio America yesterday that a third party will be needed to take a strong stance against the legalization of same-sex marriage, just as the Republican Party emerged in the 1850s to oppose slavery as the Whigs were foundering due to divisions on the issue.

When Corombos asked why Republicans have delivered a muted response to the marriage decision, Staver didn’t hold back: “They’re cowards, and if Republicans don’t stand up for this, the party will become a non-issue and there will be a third party that will ultimately take its place. That’s what happened with the issue of slavery and there’s no party that’s immune from this situation.”

Staver went on to complain about the missed opportunity to enshrine discrimination into the Constitution with the Federal Marriage Amendment following the 2004 elections, as well as his belief that it's "absolute stupidity" to think that the fight over marriage equality is over.

“That would be like saying with regards to Dred Scot, when the Supreme Court said, ‘Sorry Dred Scott, you’re black and blacks are inferior human beings, you don’t have rights of a citizen, therefore the debates over.’ That would be ridiculous then, it’s ridiculous now.”

Earlier today, we reported that Mike Huckabee was also threatening to leave the Republican Party over its non-response to this week's news.

Mike Huckabee Threatens to Leave the GOP Over Its Non-Response to the SCOTUS Gay Marriage Decision: VIDEO

Huckabee

Former Arkansas Governor and longtime opponent of LGBT equality Mike Huckabee phoned in on American Family Radio's Today's Issues program earlier this week to blast the Republican Party's largely nonexistent reaction to the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision on Monday (only a handful of GOP congressmen spoke out, no statement was released by the RNC, and chairman Reince Priebus reiterated this week that gay marriage will not be a major issue during this year's midterms.)

Said Huckabee:

I'm utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue when, if they continue in this direction, they guarantee they're going to lose every election in the future...and if Republicans want to lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people, go ahead and abdicate on this issue and while your at it go ahead and say abortion doesn't matter. Because at that point, you'll lose me. I'll become an independent. I'll start finding people that have guts to stand. I'm tired of this.

Jon Stewart on the Republican Party's Disingenuous Pledge to 'Do Whatever It Takes' to Save Americans: VIDEO

Stewart

As Jon Stewart explains, the GOP gets up in arms about the handful of deaths caused by ISIS and ebola, but the party isn't too keen on stepping in to stop any of the things that are actually killing us (heart disease, gun violence, climate change).

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
