Mike Huckabee claimed that gay rights activists have turned the controversies surrounding ‘right to discriminate’ legislation in Arkansas and Indiana into a “phony crisis”
Appearing on hate group Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” on Wednesday, Mike Huckabee claimed that gay rights activists have turned the controversies surrounding ‘right to discriminate’ legislation in Arkansas and Indiana into a “phony crisis," reports Right Wing Watch.
Huckabee added that intolerant LGBT activism is like something out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984:
“It is a classic example of — really a page out of 1984, when what things mean are the opposite of what they really are. And that’s what I’m seeing here is that in the name of tolerance, there’s intolerance. In the name of diversity, there’s uniformity. In the name of acceptance, there’s true discrimination.”
Forgetting recent history, he went on to claim that unlike the gay community, conservative Christians would never boycott a business.
“There may come a day in which [Christian conservatives] realize how close they are to losing all of their freedoms. And maybe there will be a day in which every one of the believers of this nation, people of faith and even some people who aren’t necessarily Christian but they’re people of conscience and they’re people of fairness, and they’ll just say that we will have a national boycott of the following businesses, and let’s just see if they really feel that they are taking the right position.”
