Mike Huckabee Quit-Fired By Country Music For Being Too Much Of A Bigot Dick
BUT MUH FREE SPEECH!
Mike Huckabee is just like Jesus on the cross. A saintly martyr for his Christian faith, mocked by the crowd while sinners go free. Or maybe he's a just whiny-ass hypocrite who wants to shit all over gay families, and then complain when he can't sit at the cool kids' table. Yeah, let's go with that one.
Last week, Huckabee was named to the board of the Country Music Association (CMA) and then forced to resign the next day when the Gay Cowboy Mafia pulled down his britches to remind everyone about the giant "B" for Bigot branded on Huck's substantial haunches.

Remember when Huck said gays shouldn't be able to adopt because "children are not puppies"? Remember when he said gay families are like incestuous, polygamous drug users?
That would be like saying, well there's there are a lot of people who like to use drugs so let's go ahead and accommodate those who want to use drugs. There are some people who believe in incest, so we should accommodate them. There are people who believe in polygamy, should we accommodate them?
You know who remembers? Jason Owen, the head of Sandbox, a talent management company that represents some of country music's biggest stars, that's who:
It is with a heavy heart that I must let you know moving forward, Sandbox and Monument will no longer support the CMA Foundation in any way (this includes everyone we represent collectively) considering the heartbreaking news shared today regarding Mike Huckabee appointee/elected to the CMA Foundation. Further, we find it hard to support the organization as a whole as a result. As you may know I have a child and two on the way. This man has made it clear that my family is not welcome in his America. And the CMA has opened their arms to him, making him feel welcome and relevant. Huckabee speaks of the sort of things that would suggest my family is morally beneath his and uses language that has a profoundly negative impact upon young people all across this country. Not to mention how harmful and damaging his deep involvement with the NRA is. What a shameful choice.
Variety reports that CMA's phone lines basically melted with people outraged that gay-hatin' Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis's BFF Mike Huckabee would be associated with their brand. Or, as the Huckster put it on his website, "Hate Wins." SAD!
This morning, he told his pals on "Fox & Friends" his tale of woe:
Today the new direction of the left is in the name of tolerance to be intolerant. In the name of love, hate people. And in the name of diversity, demand conformity.
Mike Huckabee, champion of diversity! Who knew?

And it's not enough to say I disagree and I wish this person would change his mind. Today it's let's put him out of business. Let's close his store. Let's not allow him to continue to operate a business. Let's damage him professionally. Let's hurt his brand.
Oh, it's all fun and games when you're boycotting the NFL because black people complain about getting shot by cops. But it's HALP HALP I'M BEING UH-PRESST when it's gay families wanting to be treated like human beings. "These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me." (Mark 7: 6)
That's not the kind of America where the First Amendment reigns and people are free to speak, to associate. Today it's let's destroy everyone who doesn't agree with me.
Simmer down, Squirrel Popper. This IS America -- you're entitled to say any backwardass thing you like. But freedom of association means decent people can choose not to associate themselves with charities that give a platform to homophobic gun nuts. They choose not.
But don't worry, there will always be a home for your har-har-hilarious brand of humor on the Fox network.
OK, I decided against the tutu. But here's the segment if you were to too lazy to watch or were clipping your toenails with a chainsaw and couldn't hear the conversation. https: //t.co/DaduVHPUHY

It's not fair that ppl are criticizing Justice Ginsberg for skipping SOTU! Security concerns wouldn't allow her to bring CPAP machine into House Chamber. pic.twitter.com/9GOR4NlHkr
