"CALLER: I'm very concerned, it seems like there's so many people who have not read and do not understand how quickly Germany was turned into, it was a democracy, then turned into a dictatorship by everyone having to register their guns and then they went door to door and collected them.
HUCKABEE: People do forget that. And by the way, [caller] know, that when you bring that up you get people who get crazy on us, and they'll start saying, "Oh there you go comparing to the Nazis." And I understand the reaction, but it's the truth. You cannot take people's rights away if they're resisting and if they have the means to resist, but once they're disarmed and the people who are trying to take over have all the power, not just political, not just financial, but they have the physical power to domesticate us and to subjugate us to our will there's not a whole lot we can do about it other than just plan to die in the course of resistance. It's very true [caller], and I appreciate you bringing it up. I know that people are probably calling and saying you know you shouldn't have brought that up. In every society and culture where dictators take over, one of the things they have to do is get control of the military and the police and ultimately all of the citizens and make sure the citizens are disarmed and can't fight in the streets. Gosh I hope it doesn't come to that."
As Hunter did, let me first clear the decks by pointing out that Huckabee is lying about Hitler and gun control. Neither Hitler, nor Mussolini, nor Robespierre, nor the Russian or Chinese Communists, nor the Saudi dictators, nor Saddam, nor the Ayatollahs, nor Genghis Khan, nor virtually any other dictator in history ascended to power by taking people's weapons away. And no, I will not for one second countenance the suggestion that this guy, who has been shooting his mouth off about guns for years, doesn't know this. He is, as I said, lying.
And what is he lying to accomplish? He is deliberately attempting to create a large number of right wingers who believe it is their Constitutional right to murder government employees at will. It cannot be emphasized strongly enough what an explosive situation Huckabee and all the "national leaders" like him are deliberately creating.
Forty years ago, this sort of open talk was the product of the most extreme elements in the country- people like the American Nazi Party, who, even though their numbers were minuscule, were monitored and regarded as a threat by the government. Now, the people inciting such treasonous, murderous rage are national leaders, elected by the Republican party and treated seriously by what passes for our mainstream media.
Isn't he cute? The real Buzz Windrip, if you know who I mean
Huckabee plays his affable, Gomer Pyle role, while deliberately trying to bring about a violent rebellion against the country, carried out by ignorant, stupid, hate filled suckers, of which, unfortunately, we have a large supply. He probably has no more chance of bringing the country down than Kim Jong Un does, but Kim is not an American, and at least the rest of us don't have to suffer the indignity of having to hear Kim trying to destroy the United States, and simultaneously shouting his patriotism at every opportunity.
The longer this goes on without opposition, the more horrible it is going to be when the time comes to set things right. The utter refusal of the Democrats and the press to even dare discuss what is obviously happening here just makes it more likely that we, or our children, are facing a real rebellion from would-be right wing dictators, who condemn everyone else as a Hitler, while doing everything they can to follow Hitler's path. I know you are not supposed to compare people to Hitler, but how close do they have to come before we face the obvious? Huckabee and people like him are creating stormtroopers all over the country, and the answer of everyone with a real voice is just to turn away.
