Former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, in an interview at The College of New Jersey, in Ewing, New Jersey, on Friday slandered same-sex marriage in terms that usually get him congratulations from his supporters and indignation from lesbians and gays, which results in more congratulations from his supporters, all of which Huckabee seems to feed on and revel in. However, he is in hot water about it today — calling same-sex marriage comparable to polygamy, incest and bestiality doesn’t seem to be working out as well this time as it has in the past, so Huckabee is trying the time-honored tactic of attacking the student journalist and claiming he was misquoted.
Oops! The student who interviewed him has posted a video of the transcript with the audio of the interview — guess who is the bald-faced liar?:
H/T Good As You, which also has the full quote of Huckabee’s disingenuous attack on the student journalist’s integrity.
Newsmax has a summary of Huckabee’s attacks on same-sex marriage from his interview at The College of New Jersey.
To put in perspective Huckabee’s personal moral sense and his attacks on the integrity of gay people for the BEING crime of homosexuality, it is worth recalling his easy attitude toward the DOING crime of murder that led him — over and over and over again — to grant clemency to Arkansas’s murderers against the advice of pretty much every expert in the Arkansas criminal justice system and the families of the victims. This includes the murderer he released who took the lives four police officers in Washington state in Nov. 2009 — for background, see the Washington Independent and Michelle Malkin.
