Flailing Christian Conservative Lashes Out In Twitter Rant
Former Governor Mike Huckabee is mad as hell and he's fighting back, on Twitter. The GOP presidential candidate who thought he was the natural choice for Christian conservatives but is polling between zero and 6 percent in battleground states and nationally slammed the man who has attracted a good portion of the evangelical voting pool, Senator Ted Cruz.
Traditional marriage matters. Consistency, honesty & authenticity matter. Moral issues matter, even if they don’t matter to donors.— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 20, 2016
Trying to turn around his failing campaign and turn around Cruz's "New York values" slur against Donald Trump against Cruz, Huckabee took to Twitter Wednesday. The ordained Baptist minister attacked the Texas Tea Party candidate for "pandering" for "NYC money" and accused him, rightly, of saying one thing for votes and another for checks.
How can we fix America's moral decay if we make excuses for politicians who pander on life & marriage to win elections? #IACaucus— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 21, 2016
I'll never play political games with my faith. We shouldn't say one thing for votes, and another for NYC money. https://t.co/w44of59oWq— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 20, 2016
Huckabee linked to a New York Times article about Cruz's fundraising dinner in the home of two gay Manhattan real estate developers, which dogged from all sides both the candidate and the businessmen for months. The LGBT community boycotted properties own by Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, and Republicans attacked Cruz for associating with them.
I'll fight for life, marriage, & moral issues as President. States do not have the "final say"... God does. https://t.co/xbB8nJkVxY (2/3)— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 20, 2016
Of course, Huckabee's attack on Cruz was was clearly also a vile attack against the LGBT community, labeling same-sex relationships and marriage part of "America's moral decay" and in violation of the "laws of nature & nature’s God."
How can @TedCruz say morality a state issue? Morality not geographical. Laws of nature & nature’s God are basis of morality—not a GPS. (3/3)— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) January 20, 2016
