What an incredibly irresponsible thing for Mike Huckabee to say.

I am so grateful that the legal system appears to be holding. Next, I want to see several traitorous Representatives and Senators indicted and convicted.

Powerful, Kamala. Powerful and righteous. I’m not trying to score points or likes when I say this, but I seriously can’t wait until the US has its first female president.

Realistically there will be a disheartening reactive backlash like Obama faced as the first African American president, but someone like Kamala could take the heat with poise, courage, and no tolerance for BS.

And sounds like Huckabee is making terroristic threats. Does Homeland Security still have a number to report that kind of menace?

When prior government officials, make threatening statements, like the one that came out of Mike Huckabee, they should be jailed, as too many people take their statements literally, and even though Trump was defeated in 2020 and will be defeated again in 2024, people like Mike Huckabee will use this as an excuse to attempt, Again, to overthrow our American democracy.

Anyone who talks of this kind of violence belongs in jail it should not be allowed to stay free. Inciting violence, or riots is still a crime in this country. Let’s not forget it!

Like so many other lily-white privileged spokesmen for the defunct GOP, Huckabee has absolutely no idea what it is like to be in battle, face bullets, probably even load or shoot a gun, live in a dangerous urban area, walk streets alone at night, witness domestic violence, you name it. To suggest what he imagines is beyond the pale to those who have actually experienced real violence. Does he “‘feel” tougher by stating such a thing? Trump is his teacher. Both are immune from the world they pretend to be a part of. Shame on them.

The real hero is Kamala Harris facing international pressure to silence the free press and not allowing it! She is half way around the world defending freedom, while Huckabee and Trump are violently threatening democracy and equal law here at home. Who is the true leader we should support in 2024?

“As a longtime Republican who voted for him, I believe Donald Trump disqualified himself from running in 2024 by spreading lies, vilifying election workers, and fomenting an attack on the Capitol,” said conservative columnist for the Denver Post and Republican activist Krista Kafer. “Those who by force and by falsehood subvert democracy are unfit to participate in it. That’s why I am part of this lawsuit to prevent an insurrectionist from appearing on Colorado’s ballot.”

Not one of the plaintiffs in the Colorado suit is a Democrat. (I think some Republicans are desperate to keep Trump from running because they know he'll lose to any Democrat.)

"....former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee opened his most recent episode by saying that if former president Trump loses the 2024 election because of the many indictments grand juries have handed down concerning his behavior, “it is going to be the last American election that will be decided by ballots rather than bullets.”

Well all right Mike! You finally voiced the position of the MAGATs: "If we don't get our way in 2024, regardless of Trump's illegal acts, we're going to shoot the place up!"

So much for the rule of law.

Ballots not bullets, mr Hucksbee...

Whoa...Mr. Christian Network...bullets not ballots... well aren’t you a fine example. The sad thing is Mr Huckabee is the perfect example of a white christo-nationalist along with his dingdong daughter Sarah removing child labor laws.

And speaking of Mexico, today their Supreme Court decriminalized abortion. A different sort of border crossing issue looms!

Bravo for Vice President’s courage and conviction, and mothballs to traitorous Mike Huckabee. What he said is about as unAmerican as it gets!

Trinity Broadcasting Network bills itself as the largest Christian television network in the world? I wonder how they and their followers can possibly define themselves as Christians? What version of the New Testament have they read? Isn’t the statement by former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, “it is going to be the last American election that will be decided by ballots rather than bullets,” complete treason? Can he be prosecuted for that?

Mike Huckabee broadcast on a "Christian" radio network, “it is going to be the last American election that will be decided by ballots rather than bullets.”

I hope that he will have opportunities to expand on that remarkable statement publicly.
