Mike Huckabee's Tired Of All The "Hate Speech" Against Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is sick and tired of all the hate speech surrounding the ongoing flap over Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's comments that he opposes the gayz tyin' the knot. But get this: the "hate speech" he's concerned with is against Cathy, not against the entire homosexual community Cathy offended with his idiotic ramblings.
Huckabee appeared on Fox and Friends this morning, where he discussed his push to get people to eat at Chick-Fil-A in protest of the protests against Cathy's homophobia. He said the following: "The hate speech [against Cathy] is getting out of control."
Hey, Mike -- how about all the "hate speech" against the homosexuals Cathy relegates to second-class citizens with his need to go public with his opinion that they don't have the right to legally love each other?
Cathy's a Christian, which apparently makes "hate speech" acceptable -- he went on to say that his urging people to eat Cathy's greasy (in our opinion, disgusting) chicken is to "show appreciation for chickens [and] that people are still Americans and even Christians can take a stand for what they believe in."
Hey, Mike -- just because something's dubbed "Christian" doesn't mean it's hate-free.
The only "hate speech" sent Cathy's way are charges that he's a hate-spewing homophobe. But it's not "hate speech" if it's true.
Here's the "hate speech" with which Huckabee should probably be more concerned:
"I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try to redefine what marriage is all about." - Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy.
God forbid those "arrogant" gayz and their "audacity" to want to do something everyone else in the entire country is allowed to do.
How's this for "hate speech": Hey, Mike -- you're an idiot.
