For a while I’ve argued that the Republican party (especially the evangelical far-right) operates more like a cult than a political movement. These are people who really don’t seem to care about facts or reality, just what they want to be real. You can literally show them overwhelming evidence that disproves one of their beliefs, and it won’t matter because they just don’t care. Not only that, but most of these people lack any ability to even be the slightest bit reasonable or rational about anything.
After all, these are many of the same people who vote for a political party whose economic ideology is built on the premise that we need to make the wealthiest Americans even richer and somehow the rest of us will benefit.
Well, when it comes to abortion these people can become even more outlandish, if not flat-out disturbing and dangerous.
Take for instance someone like GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee who literally said that he doesn’t believe a 10-year-old who was sexually assaulted should have the option to have an abortion.
“Creating one problem that is horrible, let nobody be misled, a 10-year-old girl being raped is horrible — but does it solve a problem by taking the life of an innocent child?” Huckabee said. “And that’s really the issue.”
Please excuse the following language: No it’s f*cking not!
The issue is a child – a 10-year-old child – was forced to give birth after being brutally victimized by a monster… that is the only issue that matters here.
Oh, but this bottom-feeding jackass wasn’t done.
“When an abortion happens, there are two victims,” he continued. “One is the child, the other is that birth mother, who often will go through extraordinary guilt years later when she begins to think through what happened, with the baby, with her.”
Actually, that’s incorrect. A recent study concluded 95 percent of women who’ve had an abortion don’t regret them.
It is astonishing that here we are, in 2015, and it’s still acceptable to millions of Americans for someone like Huckabee to go on live television and defend laws that would force a 10-year-old victim of a horrific crime to have a baby. When it comes to the “abortion debate,” this is about as extreme as it gets. While there are plenty of people who oppose abortion, even many of those people support exemptions for situations such as this. Yet there are still millions of people who don’t.
You know, those who tend to think that the result of the sexual assault on this poor 10-year-old girl was just a “beautiful” gift from God. Just like a religious cult leader brainwashing his followers.
To honestly believe that a 10-year-old who was victimized should be forced to go through a painful pregnancy and be victimized yet again, possibly having her life threatened in the process, classifies Huckabee as the lowest form of bottom-feeding scum as far as I’m concerned. I’m absolutely through with this idiot and everybody who thinks like him.
Mike Huckabee has devolved into nothing more than a sick and twisted con man trying to scam religious fools out of money, using a cult-like mindset where religious dogma matters more than basic human decency. Shame on you, Mike.
