Jesse Ventura Hammers Mike Huckabee: ‘I Think That He Wants Us to Become the Middle East’
Jesse Ventura has radical ideas sometimes, but he recently hit the nail on the head when discussing Mike Huckabee and his blind devotion to religion.
“I think that he wants us to become the Middle East,” Ventura said. “Mike Huckabee’s a Christian who’s dying to be a Muslim, I guess. That’s what they do over there — they put God’s law in front of government’s law.”
“Mike, read Ben Franklin. Read Tom Jefferson. Read what those people had to say about your organized religion. They were fearful of it,” Ventura said. “That’s why they made it where no religion prevails in this country and there’s a separation called church and state. [Davis] works for the state. If she can’t do her job — in the words of Dabney Coleman in 9 To 5 — fire her ass.”
Raw Story reports:
Huckabee has accused the Supreme Court of overstepping its authority by rejecting Davis’ argument that issuing the licenses would violate her conscious as a Christian. Davis was rebuffed yet again on Wednesday by a federal judge.

Ventura’s producer, Alex Davis, pointed out that Davis had tried to work around the high court’s ruling by removing her name from a new set of licenses — a move that might invalidate them under state law.
That prompted the former Minnesota governor to accuse both Davis and Huckabee of advocating for discrimination, in direct opposition to constitutional principles.
