Tolerance…Posted: December 4, 2008
Ladies and gentlemen, your Republican party via Mike Huckabee:
HUCKABEE: No, I didn’t say they hadn’t experienced enough violence.
Q: Could you clarify for us then?
HUCKABEE: Well, I just said that there is a difference between the civil rights movement of African-Americans who were essentially hosed down in the streets by Bull Connor in Birmingham and beaten with their skulls crashed in on the bridges of Selma for being black, not for their behavior, not for anything other than their race. And I said that’s a different situation than asking for marriage to be overturned in California.
Q: Are you saying the LGBT community does not suffer violence?
HUCKABEE: No, I think they do. And so do the Christians.
Remember, kids, it’s the Christians in this country that suffer the real violence.
UPDATE: And look! Bill O’Reilly is getting in on the action! Check out the clip where one of his idiots goes after Hendrik Hertzberg on the street. Hertzberg does a pretty good job of articulating himself, considering that he was ambushed.
