After eight years of George "Dubya" Bush there is a strong possibility that GOP underdog Gov. Mike Huckabee might secure the Republican nomination for President and continue to provide the American people with more of the divisive politics we've experienced from the current administration.
If you haven't heard about the 1992 statements from Huckabee during his Senate campaign regarding HIV/AIDS patients then you've obviously been living under a rock. Huckabee has already begun back peddling on statements he made such as this one where he said that “we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague“:
Huckabee says he firmly stands by his statement and also said at the time that funding for AIDS research should be provided by Hollywood celebrities and not the government. I guess I missed the memo that said AIDS only affected gay men and those in Hollywood.
Jeanne-White Ginder, mother of Ryan White, was so alarmed by Huckabee's statements that she called for a meeting to discuss his views. In a recent statement Huckabee had this to say in his response to the invitation,"I would be very willing to meet with them. I would tell them we’ve come a long way in research, in treatment." As if the mother of a son who died from AIDS needs to be educated.
Ladies and Gentlemen this is exactly why you should be registered to vote, to keep dangerous politicians like Mike Huckabee out of a position to serve ALL people in America and not just Republican hypocrites who hide their dirt behind an unauthentic platform of moral superiority.
I'm so pissed that this man has a platform to spread his ignorance and fear that I could rant all day, but I won't. Read what everyone else is saying about The Huck.
