Huckabee "misspoke"? Yeah, right!!

It’s all over the news. Huckabee:

“Obama If you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather,” Mr. Huckabee said.”

His office says he really meant Indonesia. The 'Mau Mau" Revolution wasn’t in Indonesia, bud.

I never paid too much attention to this guy, thinking he was waaaaaaay too religious for my tastes, but at least didn’t engage in dirty politics. But this is just ridiculous. FOX needs to fire this guy and he needs to be tarred and feathered and run out of politics.

Fucking birther idiot.

n.b.: I don’t usually pit pols for saying stupid things, but this one sticks in my craw.

It’s FOX. He’ll probably get more money now.

And yet, despite the religiosity, Huckabee is subject to real criticism from the Literalist and the Inerrant camps.

His ‘Christianity Lite’ and cafeteria style Bible verse plucking makes him problematic for the folks that take their salvation seriously.

For a self-declared Christian, he certainly has a problem with enforcing all of the 600+ Levitican Laws.

Naw, he’s just fulfilling his contractual obligation. This is the absolute minimum amount of Obama-bashing required to be a FOX pundit. That channel is teeming with birthers, and most of them are much worse than Huckabee.

Obama went to Kenya when he was in his 20s. He spent a month there. He did all his growing up in 30 days. So Huckleberry is correct.

May be moot. If he decided to run, he’ll be off the payroll as Gingrich and Santorum will be soon.

First, I’m disappointed in Huckabee. I thought he was better/smarter than this.

Second, I’m wondering what “our” view of the Mau Mau uprising is supposed to be. Many Americans have never heard of it, but I would have imagined that those who have mostly sympathize with the Kenyans. The British were running an empire; that’s not exactly a matter of interpretation, is it?

Does he mean in the US, the Mau Mau rebellion is taught as being just a bunch of savage niggers refusing Anglo civilisation? Besides, the British were imperialists, and they did treat the Mau Mau like shit. What’s his point here? Huckabee’s not British, nor are the American people. So what’s his fucking argument here?

Pretty certain he knows the birther argument has no bases, damn shame, even though he is a “Salem’s witches” Puritan type, he’s also one of the very rare among the deep conservatives that can handle a debate.

Edit: aaaah fuck it spark, there wasnt any other post but Mace’s when I came on the thread. Why are you Mau Mauing me here?

He means that in the US the term “Mau Mau” scares the shit out of people.

Not Mau Mau, Mao Mao. He’s trying to imply Obama is one of them secret double Commies.

Some people are just natural born flak catchers.

Huckleberry made a “mistake” like Fox does.Several times Repubs in scandals have had a big D under their picture indicating Democrat. They have not had one error going the other way. They had a panel discussion while showing the reverse of a poll in back of them for the whole segment. Of course fair and balanced as they are, they mentioned the “mistake” once fixing everything. People have Fox so wrong.

What do the bulk of the Levitican Laws have to do with Christianity?

Christ came to fulfill the law.

Christians, for good or for bad, are stuck with Levitcus.
Kind of makes for a day brightener for me!


Nothing. Only the ones banning the homos.

Christ explicitly said that the old covenant no longer applies.

Obama lived in Indonesia between the ages of 5-10. The rest of his childhood, before that and after that, was spent in Hawaii. So even Huckabee tryinbg to backtrack and say he meant Indonesia doesn’t makes sense since Obama didn’t grow up in Indonesia either, his father left him when he was two and the Mau Mau rebellion? The hell?

Huckabee also tries to say that Obama hates England because he returned a bust of Churchill that had been loaned, not given as a gift, to Bush by Tony Blair after 9/11. That, all by itself, is stupid even if he hadn’t spewed the garbage about Kenya.

My only question would be is Huckabee that misinformed or is he a malicious liar? I find it hard to believe he actually believes that Obama grew up in Kenya, so…

He could at least follow the Ten Commandments. I’m pretty sure Christians think those are still valid.

Is it actually well known?

Except for the homos. Don’t forget, with cafeteria Christianity, you can pick one from column A and one from column B!
