I know this comes as no surprise to many of you, but apparently, good old Tax Hike Mike Huckabee is so enthralled with the idea of freedom and constitutional principles that he seems to like the idea of forcing people at gunpoint to listen to often discredited “historian” David Barton. From a piece at Huffington Post:
But the most outrageous statement by far came from Mike Huckabee, who expressed his admiration for Barton by saying that he “almost wished” that “all Americans would be forced — forced at gunpoint no less — to listen to every David Barton message.”
Yes, yes, I know. Most of you automatically discount Huffington Post information on general principle. I also know he said he “almost wished” rather than “wished”. However, keep in mind that “almost wished” means he at least entertained the possibility of doing just that, even as a fantasy.
Forced at gunpoint? To listen to a guy who has attributed quotes to the Founding Fathers that supposedly support his position without evidence they even said them? Yeah, I don’t see any problem with that.
Of course, I’m forced to wonder what someone like Huckabee would do if they actually had absolute political power. So far, this is not a thought that gives me tingles inside by any means.
