Sunday on Fox News, former Arkansas Governor and failed presidential contender Mike Huckabee had a special message for Black Lives Matter and anyone else who complains about systematic police violence and abuse toward minorities. Huckabee said:
“If you think you can do a better job, go to the police academy earn your badge, earn your weapon, get out on the streets and take the low pay and show us how it outta be done.”
So Huckabee’s solution for solving injustice is for the victims to either shut up or join the force.
But does he practice that philosophy in his personal life?
If he receives bad service at a restaurant, does he apply for a job there? If his plumber jacks up his plumbing, does Huckabee go out and get his plumbing license? Should citizens not complain about bad roads and join road crews instead?
So if the police are no longer accountable to the people they serve, does that mean Huckabee feels that politicians are also above reproach? Give Huckabee some credit; he’s complained about President Obama for years and tried to run for Obama’s job himself.
But unlike someone who flunks the police academy, Huckabee’s made a fortune as a failed presidential candidate by selling books and speeches filled with ignorant notions like the one he had the audacity to vomit from his mouth in the above video.
Queen Huckabee declares “let them eat cake!”
