Hide your kids! Hide your wife! Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee just admitted that he wants to force his brand of Christianity on everyone, or more specifically, David Barton's loony-tunes theories of America as a Christian nation on everyone, "at gunpoint".
Though some smarter than American's aspiring Mullah-In-Chief tried to edit that part of Huckabee's speech away, they were sh*t out of luck.
"I had watched Huckabee’s speech. How on earth could I have missed a statement like that? Well, I didn’t. It had been edited out of the webcast that I had watched.
Kyle Mantyla over at PFAW’s Right Wing Watch had recorded Huckabee’s speech when it was streamed live on Thursday, and posted the ‘forced at gunpoint’ clip on Friday. By Saturday, when I watched the webcast on the United in Purpose website, that part of Huckabee’s speech had been edited out."
Here's the unedited version.
AlterNet -- Huckabee has just been caught on video, at a Christian supremacist conference, stating that Americans should be forcibly indoctrinated at gunpoint. The organization which hosted the “Rediscover God In America” conference, United in Purpose, has edited Huckabee’s comment from footage of his speech, but not before People For The American Way’s Kyle Mantyla captured the unedited footage, in which Mike Huckabee states, “I almost wish that there would be, like, a simultaneous telecast, and all Americans would be forced – forced at gunpoint no less – to listen to every David Barton message, and I think our country would be better for it. I wish it’d happen.”
David Barton is leading promoter of the American history revisionist theory that America was founded as a Christian nation. He also believes the Declaration of Independence is a "collection of sermons" and the Constitution came straight "from the Bible".
Huckabee was the candidate I most feared during the 2008 Republican primary because he clearly aspired to be not only America's Commander-In-Chief but also its Supreme Spiritual Leader.
So long, Huck'. You've just made yourself unelectable.
