Here we go again…. You are about to read a story about a non-story. Why? Because that’s what those on the left do when they can’t debate real issues or come up with real solutions. They grab on to a story, pretend to be offended by it, and then scream that all Americans should be offended too. That’s exactly what they are doing to Mike Huckabee.
At a recent meeting of the Republican National Committee, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was one of the guest speakers. During his remarks, he said the following: “If the Democrats want to insult women by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it.”
Not only did Huckabee call out the Democrats for their approach to making women dependent on government, but he also prefaced that remark by stating what his party believes: “Our party stand for the equality of women and the capacity of women. That’s not a war on women. It’s a war for them.”
However, in usual fashion, those on the left jumped on his comments and framed them as HIS personal beliefs… and boy were they offended. Here’s a sampling of tweets compiled by Weasel Zippers:
Dana Bash (CNN) — At Rnc meeting @MikeHuckabee just said fed govt shouldn’t help women w who can’t control their libido w birth control.
Kasie Hunt (MSNBC) — Huckabee: Women “helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them … birth control because they cannot control their libido”
Nancy Pelosi — Even 100 years ago, it would have been hard to imagine a man making a statement as ridiculous as what Mr. Huckabee said today.
CNN had a panel discussion over the latest “big problem” for Republicans:
As noted on The Blaze, panelist S.E. Cupp was particularly on point when she said: ““I’ve got to say that I feel like I’m in the ‘Twilight Zone.’ It is so 100 percent clear that Mike Huckabee was talking about the Democratic treatment towards women and not his own feeling or the Republican Party’s feeling about women.”
“I have never seen lazier, more intellectually dishonest analysis of this moment than I have today,” she added. “I mean, it’s shocking to me. It is clear what Mike Huckabee’s intention was here.”
Just listen to the rebuttal from Barack Obama’s former deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter. She doesn’t even know what to say.
The frustrating part of this non-issue is that, as Cupp noted, even some Republicans jumped on the bandwagon. The CNN segment included comments by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who said, “As we look to grow the ranks of our party, we must all be very conscious of tone and choice of words when we communicate those policies effectively.”
Give me a break! What is this guy even talking about? There’s nothing more frustrating than when a Republican stands up and says something honest and to the point and then gets attacked not only by Democrats but also by Republicans!
Huckabee is 100% correct. Those on the left have the same script for every segment of society. Whether it is women, minorities, the poor, the elderly… their tactics are all the same. Invent a grievance; blame someone for that grievance; and show that government has the solution. That’s just great… and look where our country is now!
