Will Mike Huckabee stand with Muslim flight attendant?

Posted By on Sat, Sep 5, 2015 at 7:27 AM

A Muslim flight attendant has filed an EEOC complaint because she was suspended from her job for refusing to serve alcohol to passengers. Against her religion.

I expect Mike Huckabee, who is supporting Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis' refusal to obey court ordersto also stand with this poor woman being persecuted on account of her faith.

Bro. Rapert, come on down, too. And bring Bros. Ballinger and Hester with you. Isn't just the kind of thing you fear some renegade city might do?

On this topic, Dana Milbank Kim Davis is no Martin Luther King, she's George Wallace. A growing trend toward lawlessness among Republicans, Milbank notes (not counting Democrat Davis).

Davis got support for her law-breaking from Matt Bevin, the Republican candidate for governor of Kentucky, and from her husband, Joe, one of three men to whom she has been married. Ominously, he said he’s not afraid of harassment by gay-marriage supporters, and he invoked his gun-toting rights under the Second Amendment. “I’m an old redneck hillbilly, that’s all I’ve got to say,” he said. “Don’t come knocking on my door.”

It’s fitting that, as Kim Davis undermines the rule of law, Joe Davis threatens violence. When you lose the former, all you are left with is the latter.
