MikeHuckabee Tears Into #NeverTrump-Tells Them To Leave GOP [Video]

This past week has been just brutal for many of us. I have not written  anything this week because I was taking time to get my thoughts together regarding this latest assault on my personal identity, and how I would react to it.

Mike Huckabee has forced my hand, however. In the video below he tells those of us who are #NeverTrump that we should leave the GOP since we are “No longer Republican”. Well, Mr. Huckabee I will add your name to the list of the other many foul, judgmental, and otherwise objectionable people that I have come across in my past eight years of my involvement in the party.


To be fair, I have many people I have met in the party who I adore and admire. I have also come across people who have told me that since I am not a social conservative (SoCon) that I am not a Republican. Then I had people tell friends of mine in the Log Cabin Republicans that the GOP had no room for gays (never mind the the hero of many Republicans is Reagan, who helped organize the Log Cabins!). Next, and most unbelievable to me, was when another friend of mine who happened to be Jewish was told that the GOP was for “Good Christian men and women” and Jews had no place in the party. This only a few years ago people!

David Duke, former KKK Grand Wizard, supports Trump who refused to disavow him.

So now we have a presumptive nominee who brings all of the psychos, and sickos, out of every dark nook and cranny in  the party into the bright light of day. I have watched people I love and respect turn on others in the party who they have fought many a fight with, all over a glowing orange narcissist who re-tweets White Supremacists who litter their Twitter feeds with hashtags like #WhiteGenocide. It is enough to make my head throb into the next century.

Now, we have a two time failed Presidential candidate in Mike Huckabee telling a staggering number of the GOP electorate to leave the party if we cannot support Trump. Really Governor? You are willing to tell 60% of the GOP to leave the GOP? Since website fivethirtyeight.com put Trump’s favor-ability rating around 40% in late April that is exactly what Mr. Huckabee is suggesting.

Trump and Clinton have staggering favor ability rating issues, as illustrated by fivethirtyeight.com

Also, the #NeverTrump movement is more diverse than any other movement I have seen in the GOP in recent memory. The complete list of famous #NeverTrump members is long and distinguished, you can see a few of them listed below.

“Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.)

Gov. Charlie Baker (Mass.)

Glenn Beck, radio host

Max Boot, former foreign policy adviser to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)

Heck the registrations the Libertarian party has been getting in many states are staggering, and include some famous names of their own such as Mary Matalin longtime GOP strategist and wife of Ragin’ Cajun James Carville.

While I have not determined where I will go later this year, I have decided that I will write in Marco Rubio in the general election. Beyond that, my political future is very much in question. The one thing that I do know is this-Donald Trump does NOT represent #MyGOP. I registered with the GOP as the party of Lincoln and of freedom and equality of all under the law.

If the party has removed itself from its original mission-that is fine. But I can no longer go with it.

    I share your contempt for Mike Huckabee. I have noted his poor judgement and fiscal irresponsibility as Governor as I opposed both of his failed bids to become POTUS. We can thank him, in part for a Trump candidacy, since it was vanity candidates like he and Ben Carson who cluttered the field and split the anti-Trump vote in the early states.

    The problem is where to go? This is clearly not the party of Reagan anymore, and, as Reagan said of the Democrats, “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me.”

    The Tea Party never coalesced. I have much in common with Libertarians, but not all. Independents haven’t to my knowledge had much of an impact on national politics. Even if a new conservative party were to rise, like a Phoenix out of the ashes of the Republican party, how many years would it take to duplicate the infrastructure to support a national candidate?

    I haven’t voted yet this year. I intend to cast my ballot for Ted Cruz in the California Republican primary. After that, we’re looking at uncharted waters.

      I got heavily involved when my father told me “Don’t quit! Try to fix it!”. Well a decade later and I’m looking at a downticket slaughter when good, principled conservatives in my local races stood a fighting chance.

      I voted in our primary already, and then my last ditch guy quit. I will stay until November to fight the good fight in my state and then–who knows.

      Keep the faith and stand tall on your principles Mike!!

      • Mike says:

        Thanks. I know what you mean about trying to fix the party from within. I’ve been playing Cassandra to the Republicans for the last decade or so, warning them against the likes of McCain and Romney and now Trump. There just might not be enough worthwhile in the party left to fix.
        Illegitimus non-Carborundum…

    • John says:

      Mr. Huckabee, you say you’ve been out there campaigning for people you didn’t agree with 100%. Fair enough. Have you ever campaigned for someone you DISAGREED with 100%, out of party loyalty?

  • Jarrod says:

    I’m right there with you. I’m really concerned. When The GOP is advocating that Republicans vote for Bernie from now on to keep Hillary out you know we are all about to shit the bed. There is a side of me that wants to believe that this will all work out fine but the other side is all out of fucks to give. Trump, Hillary, Bernie, we are all doomed. I’m buying bullets while I still can. Hell at least with Bernie I can still keep my guns.

  • Jennifer says:

    I feel your pain. The scary thing is that I feel caught between two factions-one that advocates Fascism and one that advocates Socialism. Neither belongs in America. Period.

    Our educated voting base has eroded dangerously over the years and now here we are. Rock meet hard place.

    I don’t know where we will end up, but I for one will arrive with my principles intact.

  • J walter says:

    Now that Trump won, can we pull together against Hilary and her feminist agenda.

  • Ken Mitchell says:

    I’m a Cruz guy, but I’ll probably vote Libertarian in the general election – not that it will make any difference.

    I live in California, and my eyes are fully open to our awful situation. California will most likely go to the Democrat candidate; Clinton, Sanders, Biden, Warren; it really doesn’t matter. And on the off chance that California is so closely divided that my vote MIGHT make a difference, then this will have been a “wave” election and it will all be over before the polls close here.
