With all due respect to reigning, heavyweight clown champion, The Donald, it's time to take a look at another one of the mutton-headed circus freaks that has emerged from the GOP Presidential clown car:
GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is open to the idea of using federal troops and the FBI to stop women from having abortions.
"I will not pretend there is nothing we can do to stop this," Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and an outspoken social conservative, said Thursday at a campaign stop in Jefferson, Iowa.
Huckabee addressed abortion again at his next stop in Rockwell City, Iowa, where a reporter asked him whether stopping abortion would mean using federal troops or the FBI.
"We'll see if I get to be president," Huckabee said, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.
Umm yeah ... so how's that freedom from government tyranny thingy working out for you Tea Baggers??
Holy shit! Tea Party candidate and god-bothering former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is open to the idea of declaring martial law (because that is what it is called when you employ federal troops against your own citizenry) in this country in order to stop women from having abortions!
Nevermind the fact that the supremest court in the land has declared abortion legal (for the time being, that is), but this crazy sumbitch is ready to send in the 101st Airborne along with J. Edgar Hoover's G-Men to prevent women from engaging in a lawful act.
The Gadfly was certain that The Donald was going to be the one to make the next outrageous, out of touch with reality statement. But looks like ol' Huckaboo-boo beat him to the punch.
The Gadfly can just envision an America run by the Mike Huckabees of the world ....
.......a young woman, raped by her father or even just some random criminal, and impregnated, seeks the assistance of an abortion doctor and after failing to locate one, because they have been all imprisoned or threatened with imprisonment, she takes matters in to her own hands and decides to go to a back-alley specialist who has nothing more than a coat hanger and ibuprofen as tools of his trade. Just as the procedure begins, President Huckaboo-boo's jack-booted stormtroopers swoop on to the scene, shoot the amateur abortionist dead, grab the girl, take her away to their pro-life hospital (aka - forced birthing factory) and keep her sedated and under constant surveillance for the next several months up the moment the girl is ready to give birth, at which time the girl is dragged from her sedation cell, taken to a brightly lit, sterile room where a team of Liberty University trained obstetricians and midwives bring forth the bastard child into the world. And upon the birth, they all stand around and pray and give holy tribute to their chosen deity for the blessed event.
Two days later the young woman and her child are summarily discharged from the forced birthing facility and told to go forth and prosper in the world. The woman, who has no work, no home to return to, and no means of supporting the child begs the abortion saviors if they will help her. They all look at her with those dead, pod people eyes and just slam the door in her face. Their duty is done. They brought forth another human life in to the world. That is all that matters to them. What happens to that child going forward is none of their interest or concern.
If you ladies believe that The Gadfly is exaggerating that scenario -- well -- perhaps then The Gadfly needs to do an intervention with you. Mike Huckabee, unfunny clown that he is, and his ilk, are ratcheting up the public statements about how they want to run this country should they ever gain power. You best believe The Gadfly when he tells you tha these people are deadly fucking serious about how they want to use and abuse that power.
