Combine general Obama Derangement Syndrome with Donald Trump sucking all of the oxygen out of the GOP race for the White House and you get supposedly serious presidential candidates making Nazi analogies about the current Commander-In-Chief. During an interview with right-wing dirt sheet Breitbart, former Arkansas Governor and current gay-hatin’ preacher Mike Huckabee claimed that the recent nuclear deal reached with Iran meant that President Obama was marching Israelis “to the door of the oven,” obviously spurring up images of Nazis killing Jews in the Holocaust.
Governor Huckabee didn’t pull any punches when talking about Obama’s Iran nuclear deal: “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”
You have to love how the Huckster made sure to use the term “feckless”. It is absolutely imperative that any time you talk about this President’s foreign policy that you call him feckless. It is just a given. You aren’t a real red-blooded conservative if you don’t.
The rest of the interview was just softball after softball tossed towards the former Fox News personality so he could clobber them over the fence. The bible-thumping Republican also made sure to point out that our laws come only from God and that those are the only laws we should really follow. This was obviously a justification for his statements that people should rise in civil disobedience over the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.
However, religious nuttery aside, this interview is going to be noteworthy over his Nazi analogy. Which is all the better for Huckabee as it may get him some media coverage and criticism during a period of time when The Donald is dominating the press. The thing is, the GOP primary was always going to be a shitshow due to the fact that roughly a gajillion candidates were going to run with no clear favorite. Add in Trump and it has gone full Captain Insano.
