Huckabee: Jay-Z is Beyonce’s Pimp

As he prepares for another failed run at the Republican presidential nomination, Mike Huckabee has a new book out, appropriately called God, Guns, Grits and Gravy. Writing about a sexy performance from Beyonce on a TV show, Huckabee had this to say:

“My reaction: Why? Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?”

Oh yes, of course. Because it couldn’t possibly be that she controls her own career, right? It’s not like she was already a superstar before she ever even met Jay-Z. She’s a woman, so she can’t possibly have thoughts of her own and must be enslaved to her husband, who is so powerful that he managed to control her career before he ever met her. That’s how unbreakable a husband’s control is, they can brainwash their weak-willed wives before they even meet. It’s extraordinary.

A guy like Huckabee simply cannot conceive of a woman who has her own thoughts and her own will, and certainly not a woman who owns her own sexuality and flaunts it. It just does not compute for him. Women are just empty shells to be filled with whatever their husbands want, blank canvases, to mix metaphors, upon which he paints whatever he wants. Not unlike how they view the relationship between God and human beings in general.

    To be fair, it’s probably more just a dogwhistle.

    Wait. That doesn’t help.

    Let me start over…

    Huckabee 2016!

  • Larry

    What a powerful, thought-provoking statement from The Huckster. If you listen, you can almost hear teens across the country deleting the Beyonce MP3 files and videos they torrented off of Pirate Bay in response.

  • D. C. Sessions

    That’s how unbreakable a husband’s control is, they can brainwash their weak-willed wives before they even meet.

    Unless, of course, those weak-willed wives are instead seduced by some corrupt businessman tempter , in which case their husbands are mindless putty with no moral agency of their own.

  • Akira MacKenzie

    Wow! Racist much, Mike? Why not claim Jay-Z drives an garishly painted Cadillac, carries a cane, and wears a big-brimmed hat and platform shoes while you’re at it?

  • marcus

    He also believes “…that the government must continue to prohibit same-sex unions because of bisexuals who, according to Huckabee, desire to have two spouses – one male and one female.”

    He goes on to say, “Shouldn’t a bisexual be able to have both a male and female spouse?” Huckabee asks. “Wouldn’t restricting that person access to both genders be denying the bisexual his or her marriage ‘equality’? ”

    Right Wing Watch

    Hey, have as many partners as you want Mike, I think you will have to be satisfied with only one state-recognized spouse however, just like the rest of us.

    Wow! Racist much, Mike? Why not claim Jay-Z drives an garishly painted Cadillac, carries a cane, and wears a big-brimmed hat and platform shoes while you’re at it?

    Why, and just yesterday we were all having a chuckle over Huckabee being referred to as “Reaganesque”. Egg on our faces.

  • dan4

    @4: Wow! Playing the race card much, Akira? Actually, it’s Akira who comes off as a bit racist with his comment; after all, to suggest that Huckabee’s comment (one in which he never associates Jay-Z supposedly acting like a “pimp” with the latter’s skin color) is racist is basically to make a “pimps who exploit their wives as sex objects=black men” equation.

  • Doc Bill

    Hucksterbee is not a serious candidate, but he is seriously is interesting in making some big bucks on the campaign trail. Just think, two years of paid parties. He’ll make a fortune and not actually have to be accountable for anything. Great plan, Mikey!

  • grasshopper

    Huckabee has watched too many episodes of Pimp My Bride.

  • http://www.themindisaterriblething.com shripathikamath

    Why is Fuckabee not being pilloried for the blatant racism?

  • lindsay

    Yeah, of course, dan4 @7, it must that Akira is ‘playing the race card.’ Because, of course, black men are never, ever stereotyped as pimps, and black women are never, ever stereotyped as prostitutes. And if you do a Google search of ‘Huckabee racist’, absolutely nothing shows up. Huckabee is just really concerned about Bey.

  • cptdoom

    Yep Jay-Z is a pimp, which makes Beyonce a whore and Sandra Fluke is a slut. But Calista Gingrich, who spent six years blowing the Speaker of the House – getting a job with the House in the process, so he could have easier access to her – is an upstanding Christian woman who would make a great role model as First Lady. That’s Republican *morality.”

  • lorn

    I always figured that for Beonce Jay-Z was something of a fashion accessory. It seemed to me that she took on Jay-Z to stabilize her credibility with black audiences as she went mainstream and gathered a more brown and white fans. It seemed a very savvy media positioning move and it look like it has worked to avoid the traumatic loss of her original fan base.

    Other figures has handled the mainstreaming less well and ended up alienating their original base. Doubly sad if they don’t catch on with the mainstream audience.

  • Onamission5

    Oh, FFS. He simply cannot conceive of a black woman who is self actualized, or a black man who is non violent, can he?

    Seeing all black man as sexual predators and all black women as of loose sexual morals is an old white racist attitude.

    Does the audience for his book really know who these people are? I imagine a typical Huckabee reader picturing Huggy Bear a la Starksy and Hutch when he mentions Jay-Z. Try to imagine about a typical Huckabee reader. Who the fuck would buy and read a book by this con man? Oh, I know they’re out there, but … *head shake*

  • http://drx.typepad.com Dr X

    Just a comment on the title of his book. The whole thing is a non-sequitur. It’s simply means: “if you’re a dumb fucking rube, this book is for you.

  • Abdul Alhazred

    Let’s see if we can reconstruct Huck’s line of reasoning.

    1) Likes bling-bling.

    2) Acts jivey.

    Hmmm …

  • anubisprime

    It is just the traditional tactic enthusiastically employed by religious fuckwits and scam merchants throughout history.

    Manipulation of fears, bigotry, hatreds, intolerance, racism, misogynistic tendencies, the wide eyed and innocent appeal that reinforces tacit support for ingrained politically manufactured presumptions that rely on innuendo and out and out lies. and the pandering to righteousness in some spurious gods name…that above all else ‘because jeebus’ has to be in the mix to secure the fundy vote, and fundies tend to the chronically dumb…they need a trigger word to function and get motivated, and ‘jeebus’ is the best tool in that box. a fact that any politician worth their expenses is well aware of.

  • dingojack

    Anubis – let’s not forget though, a lot (but certainly not all) Fundies have lived lives sheltered from reality. So when these clueless-wonders spout off the egregious racism/sexism that their parents/church/echo-chamber thought was perfectly normal and acceptable — and get hammered for it — the ‘wide-eyed innocence’ look isn’t, necessarily, a pose.

    (Remember the proud use of their clever invention, the term ‘tea-bagger’, and the embarrassed scramble away from it?)

    Wow! Playing the race card much, Akira? Actually, it’s Akira who comes off as a bit racist with his comment…

    Actually, this “I’m rubber you’re glue” response to racism has got to be the dumbest of the dumb shit Republicans puke out these days. It exposes the intellectual vacuity that drove me from the party years ago. Words and concepts are just tools of manipulation, never mind their content, and never mind the implications and how they relate to what you said yesterday. If their meaning threatens to be too complicated, just assume it false. No wonder the entirety of their substantive platform is tax cuts. They can’t grasp anything more complicated. It’s Dunning-Kruger on a grand scale.

    dingojack @ 20

    the ‘wide-eyed innocence’ look isn’t, necessarily, a pose.

    Well I accept that for the rank and file jeebus fans…and it is a fair point dingo, it is also a point that the mouthpieces and general scammers, moovers’ and groovers’ depend on…like Huckabee they all use the sound byte trigger, and do it deliberately, they know their audience after all, tis rule 101 of writing a business plan for a bank loan…do your target market identification. so to maximize product acceptance.

    When pulled on whatever dross or bollix they chunder up then the wide shiny eyed innocent look is per requisite, almost a trade mark…along with some gratuitous…’Misspoke’ ‘misunderstood’ ‘out of context’ liberal media twisting words or if all that fails a straightforward…’out right denial’ excuses that such trash was ever spouted in the first place, video or auditory evidence not withstanding.

    These bunnies know how to hop, and hop they do because they get away with it time and time again.

    She has an exceptional set of pipes

    “pipes?” that’s a new word for mammary glands. Apparently Hackabee was typing that one handed.

    Anubis — totally agree.

    Mike Huckabee states:

    “Pipes” is a well-known similitude for someone with a big voice. I think Beyonce would be a popular choice for many people’s ‘top 10’ of popular singers with an “exceptional set of pipes”.

    @ dan4

    Have you ever read or listen to Ted Nugent’s songs? They are at least as sexual graphic as Jay-Z songs. Also Ted goes on stage with guns and threatens to kill Obama and Clinton. But Huckabee doesn’t chastise him. White artist gets a free pass, for behavior that is equal to or worse, than the black artist. It’s all dog whistle.
