image4413853xAnd the former Arkansas governor implied that Martin Luther King, Jr. would have agreed that laws allowing gay marriage should be broken.

…Huckabee quoted from a letter that Martin Luther King’s Jr. wrote while spending eight days in the Birmingham Jail for fighting to end segregation.

“One may well ask, ‘How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?'” King had written. “The answer is found in the fact that there are two types of laws: there are just laws, and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘An unjust law is no law at all.'”

Huckabee continued reading from King’s letter: “We can never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was ‘illegal.’ It was ‘illegal’ to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. But I am sure that if I had lived in Germany during that time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers even though it was illegal.”

“I wish I had penned those words,” Huckabee exclaimed. “But they were penned by someone who understood freedom, and understood that there was a time to stand up against law when it has become unjust. Those are the words that were penned in 1954 by Martin Luther King Jr. in his letter from the Birmingham Jail.”

Speaking for the almighty, Huckabee says God will punish America for failing to stop gay marriage.

No responses to Huckabee: Gay Marriage Is Legal, But So Were Things In Hitler’s Germany

    how is a law that upholds EQUAL RIGHTS and FREEDOM OF CHOICE unjust to any except those who believe they are somehow a ‘master race’ ?

    Another Republican who can only compare things to Hitler’s Germany. What is it with these guys. Have they ever studied anything other than the history of the Nazi’s?

    • jasperjava June 20th, 2014 at 2:44 am

      With their blatant ignorance about the Nazis, they must not have studied their history either.

      That’s why they are condemned to repeat it.

    • fahvel June 20th, 2014 at 3:09 am

      they seem not to have really studied the nazis either.

    The desperation. It’s pretty damn funny.

    • granpa.usthai June 19th, 2014 at 11:06 pm

      well, if God ever decides to punish America for being LYING RELIGIOUS HYPOCRITES, we can pretty much turn out the light and crawl under the covers (just so long as they are not of mixed fibers – then He’ll probably be really pissed!)

    • fahvel June 20th, 2014 at 3:08 am

      no, it’s not funny – a real misuse of the word.

    It makes me angry that right wingers today try to wrap themselves in the legacy of Dr. KIng. Dr. King advocated for labor unions, for a federally guaranteed minimum income, and called the United States the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.

    When he was alive, he was accused of being a communist agent. The people who are alive today and were closest to him such as Julian Bond, Jesse Jackson, and Andrew Young are reviled by right wingers.

    There is a pathological dishonesty in some groups of the American right where it is Democrats who are responsible for the mess in Iraq and conservatives simply adore a man who stood for virtually everything the right wing rails against.

    The big hole in Mr. Huckabee’s logic is a reminder of the fundamental hypocrisy upon which this country was founded where the southern colonists in pursuit of their own liberty demanded the “right” to enslave other human beings. Huckabee has his analogies wrong. It is not a case of people who support gay marriage being like Nazis. More accurately it is people who oppose gay marriage, being like slave owners. Liberty for them, but not for those who are not just like them.

      and to think, he attended Sunday School! -either he’s a slow learner, or a no learner.

    • fahvel June 20th, 2014 at 3:07 am

      your comments over the last few weeks have been truly inspiring!!!!!!

    • Bunya June 20th, 2014 at 2:02 pm

      But what really angers me is when the right wingers muse over what MLK would’ve done. The same people who couldn’t wait to see him dead back in the ’60’s have now embraced him as their hero. Truly sickening.

    This political party is well known and has some
    interesting positions. Can you guess which political
    party this is:


    Anti union

    Wishes to criminalize homosexuality

    Uses religion for it’s political purposes.

    Belittles those of other cultures for ‘not fitting in’.

    Demonizes those of other religions.

    Considers those of other races inferior.

    Suspicious of intellectuals.

    Have plan to use the public schools to teach only party approved subjects and information.

    Strongly pro military to the point of bankrupting the country to building
    more and more military weapons systems and directing much research into weapons and strategies.

    Advocates using military might to influence the conduct of other countries.

    What’s your guess?

    If you guessed the Republican Party you are close but no cigar. It’s the

    National Socialist Party also known as the Nazis.

    Surprised? Or maybe not.

      did they have any Viagra addict radio dj’s?

      • Aquaria June 20th, 2014 at 4:23 am

        I think their equivalent was Goebbels.

    • Aquaria June 20th, 2014 at 4:22 am

      Well, the Nazis technically were anti-abortion for Aryan women. They were a-ok with it for women who were Jews or Romany.

      This is a variation on the conservafilth policy of wanting abortion on demand when THEIR women are pregnant and don’t want to be, but everyone else who wants one is immoral sluts.

    why are so many Republicans fleeing God’s calling?
    When God orders you to do something, do it!
    Run for POTUS!
    Stop saying silly BS that you KNOW will disqualify you and not even give you the chance to L O S E! in the General Election like notpotus Romney.

  7. Maxx44 June 20th, 2014 at 8:11 am

    God has already punished America. He gave us Huckabee, Limbaugh, Beck, Faux News…the list goes on.

  8. William June 20th, 2014 at 9:47 am

    It still amazes me how this age old shtick still works on the mouth breathers.
    “Conservative good like ‘Murica and Jesus. Liberal bad like Nazi and Hitler”.

  9. Bunya June 20th, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    What’s with Huckabee and his obsession with Nazis and the holocaust? Is he vying to become the next Fuehrer?
