No one plays the religion card quite as well as Mike Huckabee. When the chips are down, you can always count on Huckabee. And he does it so well, and with a meek and humble persona that comes off as harmless and folksy, even charming at times. This preacher and former governor has simply mastered the art of coming off as soft and nice while sticking a Christian knife into the brain of whomever is within earshot.
This week’s victims of Huckabee’s Jesus-like charm were the folks who made the unfortunate decision to tune into the “Christian Life” program hosted by televangelist James Robinson. On that program Huckabee quietly and calmly explained how he planned on transforming the U.S.A. into a Christian utopia, as God intended it. He then went on to perpetuate the false narrative that the founders were a bunch of Evangelicals vs. the mixed bag of various sects of Judeo -Christian faiths, deists, and atheists that they actually were.
Huckabee declared that if elected he would have “God’s blessing” to fight a so-called “secular theocracy” that had been imposed by atheists.
He went on to say that he was considering a 2016 presidential bid because the country needed to become a “God-centered nation that understands that our laws do not come from man, they come from God.” (there’s that false narrative again)
Huckabee called it “the natural law of God” before ensuring that even though what he just described as a Christian theocracy would not be a Christian theocracy. It might walk like a duck, talk like a duck and look like a duck, but don’t call it a duck according to Mike.
Then Robinson jumped in and pulled the “reverse oppression” card declaring that atheists (supposedly at their weekly club meeting) have turned America into a secular theocracy that routinely oppresses and holds Christians down.
“We have a theocracy right now,” Robinson said. “It’s a secular theocracy.”
Huckabee didn’t miss the cue, chiming back:
That’s it. It’s a humanistic, atheistic, even antagonistic toward Christian faith. And that’s what we need to understand. Our basic, fundamental rights are being robbed from us, taken from us piece by piece.
Huckabee failed to mention anything specific, of course. The oppression of the Christian can only exist in vague generalities or obscure anecdotes. But one thing is for sure; Brave Mike Huckabee is prepared to sacrifice himself by being President just as God intended it – if God calls him off the bench.
Not exactly Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, is it?
Sometimes you have to wonder whether Mike Huckabee’s favorite book is The Bible or 1984.
