Well, the Huckleberry is at it again. During a speech at the annual NRA convention he called himself a “gun-clinger and a God-clinger” while never talking about his plans to maybe, possibly, sort-of run for the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential nomination next year.
Of course the Huckster’s comments were supposed to be a slap at a remark President Obama once made about conservatives clinging to their guns and religion.
But wait, the quick witted Huckles also said although the President has apparently helped gun owners since becoming President – such as allowing them to pack weapons on Amtrak trains and in federal parks – it wasn’t because he was their friend, and that attacks against gun owner’s rights would speed up if he – Obama – were re-elected. Of course, in true right-wing crazy world fashion Huckster didn’t elaborate on his claims, and he didn’t need to – wink, wink, nudge, nudge …
Huckleberry appealed to the far right-wing NRA membership by saying he’d come to the convention in Pittsburgh not to run for president but simply to “celebrate America and celebrate its values” – including God, family, and a Second Amendment meant to safeguard freedom, not just hunting and target-shooting. Yep, he had come to take part in celebrating God, family and guns; because you know what they say, “the family that shoots at other families together, stays together.”
But of course he just couldn’t leave it at that, after all if Michelle Bachmann was going to use the holocaust to attack tax increase, than Huckles couldn’t be out done, and he used Nazi Germany’s murder of six million Jews to suggest the next election – in 2012 – would determine the future of the country. And to illustrate his point he told a story about a comment his daughter wrote in a guest book after his family visited a Holocaust memorial in Israel years ago.
“Why didn’t somebody do something?” Huckabee said she wrote.
By these comments, just as Crazy Michelle had done, Mikey also tried to portray the current administration as being as bad as Nazi Germany, and the president as being Adolph Hitler. The inference was that we – today’s generation – shouldn’t have our children and children asking, “Why didn’t someone stand up to this evil President who took away our guns? Why?”
Considering Bachmann and Huckabee are running high in GOTP polls tells us that we – today’s generation – should be concerned with answering the question of some future generation, “Why didn’t someone stop these lunatics from running and winning?”
Of course, thank God, most Americans see through this far-right extremism and aren’t buying it. But it plays well to crowds like the NRA, Tea Party and Becks-R-Us.
