Huckabee Hypocrisy: Unctuously Forgave Palin’s Underage, Unwed Pregnant Daughter in 2008

But Now Says Pregnant, Unwed Natalie Portman, 29, Is a Corrupting Influence

Mike Huckabee, the ordained Southern Baptist preacher, former governor of Arkansas, Fox News host and father of a cold-blooded dog-killing former Boy Scout counselor, spent this week first lying about Pres. Obama’s family background, then attempting to walk back the first lie with more lies.

On Friday, he created yet more controversy by casting judgment on Oscar-winner Natalie Portman, 29, because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy:

HUCKABEE in 2011: One of the most troubling things is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet that boasts of, hey look, we’re having children, we’re not married, but we’re having children and they’re doing just fine.

There aren’t really a lot of single moms out there that are making millions of dollars each year by being in a movie.

I think it gives a distorted image that not everybody hires nannies and caretakers and nurses. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and would not get health care.

Got that? Presumably liberal Hollywood actresses who get pregnant of wedlock, even though they are engaged to marry the baby’s father, as Portman is, are a corrupting influence on America’s youth.

But Preacher Huckabee’s hardcore stance today stands in stark contrast to his pastoral forgiveness of the family of Republican Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in 2008, when, not long after Palin was named as the vice presidential candidate on the GOP ticket, it was revealed that her daughter Bristol was not only pregnant and unmarried but underage:

HUCKABEE in 2008: It ought to be a reminder that here is a family that loves one another. They stuck with each other through the tough times and that’s what families do. I’m grateful for the way she’s being supported by her family.

See how this works? When the unmarried teenage daughter of a right-wing Christianist governor gets pregnant, it’s A-okay with Huckabee because he assumes her family loves her. But when a presumably liberal Jewish Oscar-winning actress gets pregnant, she is a corrupting influence on the daughter’s of America.

O, the hypocrisy.

This has been a week of hellish sinning for Preacher Huckabee. He’s broken the Commandment about bearing false witness multiple times. Now here he is wallowing in the sin of hypocrisy and, most of all, the sin of passing judgment on others — about which Jesus said, “Judge not, lest ye be judged.”

See you in hell, Mike.

    Huckabee’s a two-face! His heart is far from God!

    @ Howard

    You cannot defend the indefensible. Huckabee’s own words condemn him.

    When evil gets to rockin….Karma comes a knockin!

    You forgot to mention that Huckabee thought it was also fine that Britney’s cousin was going to keep her baby out of wedlock at sixteen?

    I think it suddenly hit him that he wanted a few Jewish votes and maybe he should back off Natalie Portman.

    These supposed Christians are just power hungry at all costs.

    Besides, his dog-killing son tells me all I want to know about this father. And one of them is that he is not fit to be president. He should just shut up and quit embarrassing Americans.

    You people really need hobbies…

    I’m kidding; I’m sure you have something other than bitching about what the big bad republican is doing, right?

    Honestly…Partisanship is a vessel destined for the bottom of the sea. If you keep bias in mind, your argument will be just that, bias.

    Howard, you do not have a problem with liars? Maybe you should stop watching Fox Fastasy News. It eats at your brain…until there isn’t one. I do not mind if you like Huckabee, but lying and rewriting history is a no-no…just like killing dogs is a no-no. It is time to take America back from Fox and the cynical, grudge-bearing folks who are they audience. Obama is black, get over it. He is also a good man who did not grow up in Kenya and have you noticed, Huckabee did not offer an apology. He just admited that he is stupid.

    Not that Huckabee isn’t a hypocritical asshole, but the Jon Ponder is way too antsy to sling poo at Huckabee. There’s a big difference between the daughter of a politician and a Holywood starlet. One is simply the daughter of a public official and had no say in it. The other is an actress who willingly accepted tons of coverage and limelight.

    Now, that being said, I sure as hell don’t think that Natalie Portman is a “corrupting influence” other than being yet another reason for horny people to play with themselves (but aint that the best kind of corrupting influence?), and Huckabee is a turd, but let’s stop jumping so hastily on any possibility to slam the guy and save it for when he really deserves it. This isn’t one of those times, Jon. It only makes you look like an ass yourself.

    Ah, the usual scapegoat…it goes like such ” If you don’t agree with me; you’re clearly a Republican or watch Fox News”

    Do you not get tired of having no other come back than that?
    I won’t call you stupid or dumb for having that and only that come back but it is really getting old…

    And what the hell is this?

    “Obama is black, get over it. He is also a good man who did not grow up in Kenya”

    Okay, you know how I wasn’t going to say you were stupid…
    Well you’re not. You’re really funny though. Pulling that whole P.C trash because I said something your fragile ego couldn’t take.

    I don’t care about these people. I’m sick of the GOP, I’m sick of Liberals and I’m sick of Obama…

    You have zero on me.

      Howard, Chris, Betamax, Tim, Jen etc. – Nihilism is intellectually indefensible. As Hamilton said about people like you, “If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything.”
