Mike Huckabee Blames “Education System” for Christian Man Who Stabbed Five Jews

Dec 31, 2019

By Hemant Mehta

In the wake of an attack that took the lives of five Hasidic Jews as they celebrated Hanukkah, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took to FOX Business to explain what caused the incident.

It wasn’t anti-Semitism or mental illness. Instead, he blamed public school education. Because too much education is always the bogeyman for the Religious Right.

… When we have an education system that, from the time these kids are tots, tells them that there’s nothing that is really right nor wrong, it’s whatever they think it is, whatever they feel it is, whatever they believe it is, and that results in an adult becoming where they also think that they don’t have to tune their lives.

Real quickly, let me just mention. As a musician, I know this, that before you play a song, you’ve got to tune your instrument. What do tune it to? Do you tune it to what you think? No, you tune it to a standard. We’re a culture and society that is not tuning to any standard other than what we want. We’re selfish. We’ve sat around and we’ve created this culture which, it’s all about me, and that is a dangerous place for us to continue going.

    We’re selfish.

    He’s spot on about the Republican Party and the Trumpoids! . . . . . .  but as one of them, the need for  some scapegoat to project on and blame, is a desperately needed deflection for further public distraction from reality!!

  • Vicki says:

    Ironically, those of us who see a bigger picture are accused of being socialists.

    That is part of the badge labelling system the propagandists use to keep the gullible inside their false-news bubbles of ignorance.

    The labels in common use are;

    “atheist science”.

    “liberal (climate) science”,

    “evolutionist biology”,

    “socialist economics” etc.

    The message is clear from those using them:

    “We have been repeatedly told by our all-knowing worshipful god-delusions /preachers. parent surrogates,  or  ideological leaders, to block off our lazy closed minds, and ignore these labelled sources of information which have been ‘badged as false and evil’, thus using our spoon-fed ‘superior’ (Dunning-Kruger) knowledge, from our brilliant ‘authoritative sources’ which our Pablovian conditioning requires us to accept!”

  • the badge labelling system the propagandists use to keep the gullible inside 

    Part and parcel of right wing propaganda – and very nasty.  The left are not immune to it, but use it much less often.  Only someone of Alan4’s erudition could come up with that phrase, to the rest of us it’s known as “name calling”.

  • A disgusting family. Trump’s is maybe top of the list. Westborough Baptist Church second. This lot maybe 3rd. Does anyone remember that photo the Huckabees put out about 10 years ago? Him and his two obese sons in matching striped shirts and the fat wife and fat daughter in red? Just google “Huckabee fat photo”.

    The middle son must have been 400 lbs. Him and his brother like Tweedledum and Tweedledumber. It must represent everything the 3rd world hate about America. The profligate consumerism. People in countries too poor for anyone to be fat because there isn’t enough food looking at these fat fucks with their entitlement and religious bigotry. Supporting that crazy bitch who wouldn’t give a marriage license to a gay couple.
