Mike Huckabee Says President Obama Is “Marching the Israelis to the Door of the Oven”

You never go full Holocaust!


Earlier this month, Gov. Mike Huckabee tried to get a little juice for his presidential campaign by releasing a remake of LBJ’s “Daisy” ad, in which a small child is blown up by a nuclear weapon. When that failed, he nuked two characters from Disney’s The Lion King. And on Sunday, when that didn’t deliver Huckabee the media firestorm on the Iran nuclear deal he was looking for, he played his trump card.

And okay, now you have our attention, Gov. Huckabee:

 

At least one person rejects the idea that President Barack Obama is launching a second Holocaust—President Barack Obama. Responding to the former Arkansas governor’s comments while on a state visit to Ethiopia, Obama said Huckabee’s comment “would be considered ridiculous if it wasn’t so sad.” Huckabee is among a handful of GOP candidates who appaear to have been hurt by the rise of Donald Trump. We’ll see if the most recent stunt will help him make up some ground.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
