Mike Huckabee is lying. Again.

Former Southern Baptist pastor and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is not an honest man.

Huckabee has taken to repeating the lie that President Obama is a God-hating God-hater who refuses to say the word “Creator” when quoting from the Declaration of Independence.

This is a lie. Mike Huckabee is lying.

And Mike Huckabee is telling a particularly stupid lie. President Obama speaks in public, a lot. And almost every word he has said for the past several years has been recorded on video. So claiming that Obama never says something he says all the time — the president loves quoting the Declaration — either reveals Huckabee’s hamfistedness as a liar, or else it reveals his utter contempt for those in his audience, whom he assumes are too stupid not to just swallow every bogus word he feeds them.

    Well, the document at http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/04/27/president-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate is actually the one I question as a red herring.

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among thevarious human races  determine cultural or individualachievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3. hatred or intolerance of another race  or other races.

    Hmm, I don’t see anything there referring to skin color. Besides, any sociologist can tell you that discrimination often occurs based on racial cues other than skin color, such as voice, diction, names, clothing…etc.

    Also, I’m a woman. Don’t assume everyone around you is male.

    Be careful you’re not implicitly using the social-justice version, which means prejudice + power. A lot of people do not know this definition and even when they’re not being deliberately obtuse, will become justifiably annoyed at what they see as purposely changing the meanings of words for rhetorical sophistry.

    I object to rape exceptions because they amount to punishing women for
    wanting to have sex without becoming mothers. It’s apparently OK to
    force women to carry a pregnancy to term if she originally consented to
    the sex. My position is that such forcing is not OK under any
    circumstances.

    Exactly. The rape exception makes the misogyny behind the forced-birth movement plain. It isn’t about Saving Teh Baybeez, it’s about controlling women’s behavior.

     Also, what constitutes a “foreign-sounding” name? Anything that isn’t an anglophone name? Do Germanic names get a pass if they’ve been anglicized (e.g., Braun to Brown)?

  • christopher_young

    What kind of a name is Huckabee, anyway? Sounds like a small, furry creature from Alpha Centauri to me…

    To this European, the thing about American names is that any damn name sounds American: Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Angela Merkel, Felipe Calderon, Pranab Mukherjee, Hu Jintao, they could all be solid third generation Americans, and nobody would bat an eyelid.

  • Fusina

    Heh. “How to Be a Woman” by Caitlyn Moran. Should be required reading. She talks about her abortion in the book. I personally think it was very enlightening regarding such. Actually, the whole book was awesome. She also discusses rape, feminism, underpants, and other stuff. Just finished yesterday, still have to digest stuff, but initially, I found it a relief, in the letting go of baggage sort of way, but humorously. It was very therapeutic for me.

  • Sgt. Pepper’s Bleeding Heart

  • Carstonio

     As much as I detest the politics of both Huckabee and Romney, I disapprove of making fun of their names. I’ve heard the latter ridiculed for not using his first name of Willard. I know several Catholic families who use saints’ names for their children’s first names and have the middle names as the given names. Granted, this isn’t as bad as the xenophobia involved in the mock outrage over Obama’s middle name, as if he was kin to Iraq’s former dictator, but it’s still childish and inappropriate.

  • Tricksterson

    T me it alwaays reminds me of a movie of which I’m sure the former governor would not aprove I Heart Huckabee’s

  • CharityB

    Seriously, I keep rereading that post and that’s all I’m getting. “I’m not racist because I implicitly assume that anyone with a ‘foreign-sounding’ (read: non-WASP) name is untrustworthy and probably a crook.” That’s pretty much the standard, common definition of racism, isn’t it? He flat-out admitted that he would jump in to question the legal U.S. citizenship of a Barack Obama or a Sergei Nilov over, say, a Stephen Harper or a David Cameron, explicitly because the former two names sound “foreign” (which in this case pretty much just means non-white, doesn’t it?). 

  • Vermic

    As someone whose last name has been made fun of my whole life, I am completely on board with making fun of how silly anyone’s last name sounds, particularly if it’s a western/northern European name like mine and therefore the making-fun isn’t likely to be racist. I am mean that way.

    you don’t feel you can trust even other “white separatists” to hold to their vows of chastity around the non-whites who would purposefully move into the neighborhood to seduce them

    Are we sure this isn’t a very elaborate Poe? Because… wow.

    Okay, you know how Americans get a reputation for talking really loudly and slowly because they think it means the other person will magically comprehend what they’re saying?

    This is one of those things I find fascinating from an historical standpoint. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was English people who had that stereotype. The “ugly American tourist” was an “ugly English tourist” first. I predict that in about 50-100 years, that will change again, to whoever the current superpower is. (I’d guess it will be “ugly Chinese tourist”, but who knows.)

  • AnonymousSam

    All I can go by is what he’s given us, which is that he believes the races need to be separated and that people, even white separatists, apparently cannot be trusted to make decisions on their own about who they marry.

    Then again, he’s also argued that rape is an act of racial hostility designed to cause the target race to beget biracial offspring, thus diluting the purity of their race. So many, in a completely non-racist way, he’s arguing that he’s afraid a bunch of mean nasty non-white people will come rape his white women so they give birth to bi-racial kids and destroy the purity of his race.

  • http://lliira.dreamwidth.org/ Lliira

    So he just ignores the fact that the vast majority of rapists are the same skin color as their victims? 

  • Carstonio

     Public service ad: An old white man sits alone in a apartment with vaguely futuristic furnishings. He channel-surfs on a bank of TV screens, all showing telecasts of people in various non-white shades of skin. One shows a press conference with a female president of Chinese ancestry. He sighs and turns off the screens, and looks around his room. The walls are decorated with faded posters of country music performers, NASCAR racers, and pro wrestling stars. The shelves are lined with old cassette tapes of Lawrence Welk and Ray Conniff. He reaches toward a shelf and pulls out an old yellowed copy of “Dick and Jane.” Turning through the book, his thumb gently caresses the images of the lily-white children, as tears run down his face. Fade out over the caption “Save the Whites.”

     Want your mind blown? That commercial? That commercial more or less exists. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTSQozWP-rM

  • Carstonio

    Scripted by someone who obviously doesn’t understand that government debt is not the same as household debt…

    I picked “Chinese ancestry” at random – the future president could just as well have  had ancestry in India or Bolivia. I was mocking not only the suggestion of a no-whites dystopia but also the assertion that such a future must be avoided at all costs.

  • Vermic

    I think what blows my mind most about that commercial is, how did they even find that many Asian actors willing to be in it?

  • Lori

    That commercial was no doubt filmed here in the US. Do you know how many out of work Asian actors there are in the US? A lot. One of them was bound to agree to it for the paycheck and the credit, and they only needed one to agree. The only actor in the commercial is the guy playing the professor. The rest are extras and it’s quite possible they had no clue what they were filming.

    They don’t have any lines, so extras don’t typically see a script, or even a detailed description of the scene. A call goes out for extras for a crowd scene, with verbiage that gets across the idea that they need to be Chinese or at least look plausible as Chinese*. The folks filming the commercial get the extras together and the actor isn’t even there. They just film a bunch of reaction shots  and call it a day. The actor does his part separately and then it gets edited together. Unless they saw the finished ad on TV it’s possible the extras never knew what they worked on.

     
    *There are rules about how you can and can’t describe a role, even when a particular ethinicity is actually needed. I no longer remember enough about them to comment beyond saying that you usually can’t say flat out “must be X ethnicity”.

  • http://apocalypsereview.wordpress.com/ Invisible Neutrino

    You know, done differently, that ad could have been a lot more plausible. One common feature of empires in decline is their overextended militaries, and their governments choosing to reallocate resources to their wealthy, and their generals and admirals.

    The British Empire is the only real exception in that the dissolution happened during an era when the government of the day consciously was egalitarian in intent, and expanding its welfare state, as well as being willing to grant independence with little hemming and hawing (except for Rhodesia).

  • Madhabmatics

    Pretending to be a white supremacist is functionally the same as actually being one and practicing white supremacy, so I deny that the line between “troll” and “actual racist” exists.

    This land belongs to the Abnaki. This land belongs to the Pennacook, the Pocumtuk, the Nipmuc. Wampanoag, Massachuset, Nauset. Mahican, Wappinger, Montauk. The Iroquois Confederacy. The Delaware, the Susquehanna. I am bored of listing names and I have not even mentioned anything that’s on this map as a minor tribe or that isn’t in the US Northeast. No, your statement does not make a bit of sense.

    Jessica_r everbody who tell the truth are Racist assholes. Let me quess you are not a christian and hate what they stand for. You believe that Obama is doing a great job and you believe that the Goverment need to have more control of all the idiots out there because ,they are too stupid to understand what the Real World is like so we need somebody to tell us or guide us. I believe Mike pays 35% of his pay for taxes and he has 10 people working for him and he pays for their insurance,pay roll and taxes for them as well. How many people do you employ, how many people did you help today to make a living? Judge and be Judged!!!
