The “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy permeates today’s GOP like carcinogenic melanoma, seemingly unstoppable unless caught early. The latest sanctimonious member of the GOP to hypocritically blast President Obama, while oblivious to their own shortcomings, is Mike Huckabee.
Recently resigning from his show on Fox “News” in order to pursue a 2016 presidential bid and beat Rick Santorum to the role of stupefyingly oppressive moral scold, Mike Huckabee threw out the first Ned Flanders-like punch when he assailed Barack and Michelle Obama’s parenting skills. Apparently the Baracknophobic GOP still hasn’t learned how horribly awry the Obama girls can go.
The conservative, who’s part Creed and part Cracker Barrel, has a major problem with the Obamas letting their teenage daughters listen to Beyonce.
Here’s what Huckabee said, via RollingStone:
I don’t understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything – how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school and making sure they’re kind of sheltered and shielded from so many things – and yet they don’t see anything that might not be suitable for either a preteen or a teen in some of the lyrical content and choreography of Beyoncé, who has sort of a regular key to the door (of the White House.)
Beyonce may like to kill the lights at Superbowl halftime shows, but she’s never encouraged anyone to torture and kill dogs.
How dare those kids do what every kid on Earth does and listen to that singing and gyrating hip lady! I mean, it’s not like they’re rocking out to NWA, even though it would be perfectly fine and I kind of wished they did. At any rate, maybe Huckabee should focus less on lecturing the Obamas on their kids taste in music, and focus more on why his own kid once tortured and killed an innocent dog.
Now that Mike Huckabee wants to become the next “I’m not Mitt Romney” in 2016 and run for president, he might want to lay off given parenting advice given one of his kids’ sordid background. For example, it seems David Huckabee has a history of animal cruelty that would make Michael Vick run an ASPCA campaign.
Via The Huffington Post:
It seems young Huckabee spent some time as a counselor at a Boy Scouts camp called Camp Pioneer back in 1998 when he was 17-years-old. Huck happened upon a stray dog that had the misfortune to cross his path. In a move sure to send chills down the spine of parents everywhere, trusting their kids are being cared for by well-intentioned summer camp counselors, David Huckabee hung the dog from a tree. His excuse, according to an interview Newsweek conducted with his father Mike: ‘There was a dog that apparently had mange and was absolutely, I guess, emaciated.’
Let that sink in for just a moment and then wonder how one can have the chutzpah to attack another parent for simply letting them listen to a pop singer.
