Former Arkansas governor and presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has been picking up some support lately, allowing him to actually register in the polls. Why, he just seems like a golly-gee good old boy. There is something everyone seems to have forgotten about Huckabee, though: He sold his soul in shamelessly pandering to the illegal alien lobby.
As pointed out in this NewsMax piece, Huckabee actually implied that those who want illegals deported are tantamount to slave masters. Said Huckabee,
One of the great challenges facing us is that we do not commit the same mistakes with our growing Hispanic population that we did with African Americans 150 years ago and beyond. We're still paying the price for the pathetic manner in which this country handled that . . . I think frankly the Lord is giving us a second chance to do better than we did before.
This inane comment should outrage everyone -- save those who have invaded our country and flout our laws. To equate overt and egregious discrimination against citizens with the insistence that aliens respect our laws and sovereignty is so preposterous that, quite frankly, mere words cannot sufficiently relate the disgust I feel. And I imagine that many black folks will be pleased as punch when they hear about Huckabee's drawing of this equivalence.
Then, "Huck the Huckster," as he should now be called, was speaking to the League of United Latin American Citizens. While again doing some hispandering he said,
"Pretty soon, Southern white guys like me may be in the minority."
This drew laughter from the crowd, although the humor does seem to elude me. Of course, it may actually be a good thing if he means Southern white guys exactly like him; in other words, pandering, pusillanimous, puerile demagogues who have no regard for their culture, language or for the sacrifices made by ancestors who helped forge this nation. I don't know about anyone else, but I think embracing policy that will forever change the cultural ecosystem of the United States and transform her into a Third World nation should evoke tears, not laughter.
Huck the Huckster is right about one thing, however, in that the Lord may be giving us a second chance to do better than we did before; that is, in electing a president. His outrageous comments on immigration alone -- regardless of whatever else he may do or say or however he may try to spin it -- should disqualify him from holding any public office. Huck makes John McCain look like a nativist. He is despicable.
There is, though, one parallel between the plight of antebellum slaves and that of the invaders: Both situations were welcomed by people who wanted cheap labor. And, as far as Invasion USA goes, it's also welcomed by those who want cheap votes.
