Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee announced his campaign for president today in his home state of Arkansas. As you probably know, Huckabee is going for the evangelical wing of the GOP with his hatred towards LGBTs and anything not like him. The New Civil Rights Movement posted his 10 worst anti-gay comments from over the years and you will see how much he is stirring the pot for the right wing nuts of the country.

“[Nazis] at least…tried to hide what they were doing at Auschwitz and Birkenau,” he said. “You have to lie to people, and when lies permeate our culture, it’s a dangerous, dangerous thing,” Huckabee said. “If you are a believer and you believe old-fashioned things like the definition of life and the definition of marriage, it’s possible that the government will put you out of business as they have in numerous occasions like Elane’s Photography. Out of business.”
