Mike Huckabee Calls 9/11 Cheerleader, Cop-Killer Supporter Van Jones "Fellow Patriot"
Monday, March 28, 2011 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/28/2011 10:07:49 AM PDT by kristinn

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee shared a stage with the cop-killer supporter and 9/11 attack cheerleader Anthony "Van" Jones last night in Tallahassee.

Reports on the Florida State and Florida A&M universities joint-event called the State of the Student Summit, are scarce, however Huckabee shared the love with Jones afterward by approvingly re-Tweeting a message Jones sent to Huckabee:

VanJones68 Van Jones by GovMikeHuckabee
.@GovMikeHuckabee made me proud tonight 2B fellow person of faith + fellow patriot. We disagreed respectfully. The American way! #tcot #p2
14 hours ago

A video of a Jones-led rally held the day after the 9/11 terror attacks recently resurfaced that shows speakers and the crowd cheering the attacks, with one speaker praising the attackers as "heroes." Jones said at the rally the U.S. deserved the attacks.

A year or so later Jones produced a record album with the cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal who was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia policeman Daniel Faulkner.

Jones has since made a career for himself as a charismatic speaker marketing leftist eco-pablum under the cloak of Obama-style kumbaya "patriotism."

Huckabee looks to have fallen for the Jones' act.

He’s not called the Huckster for nothing.

What a disgrace, but of course, there’s also his pardon of Maurice Clemmons.

Huckabee is a very poor judge of character and is too gullible.

Don’t ya love how the media props up a bunch of soulless creeps and uses them at their leisure to lambaste Republicans who are stupid enough to stand anywhere near them?

The GoP is weaker than 3 day old teabags and about twice as gullible if it thinks Huck or Mitt can win.

gullible it is! the Huckster seems to be the kind of guy that when he gets up in the morning he has to be told what “left shoe / right shoe” mean.

What a dummy

Huckster is such a douche-nozzle. I hope he sticks to his “show” rather than sticking it to the rest of us in some public office.

Huckabee is the ultimate stealth RINO. For me he joins Gingrich in my permanent "no vote, go along to get along" business-as-usual loser.

Not a prayer!

Huck isn’t going to run. He likes the money he is making too much.

He was probably paid for this.

If he were running, being stupid like this makes no sense.

The Huckster has a nutty side, and he, like Bush, believes that the taxpayer treasure should be used to cure all social ills. Plus, he is a suck-up to the hard left folks like Van Jones and Moochelle. Bob

Never have liked Huckabee and never will.
Don’t trust him. Never will.

Like someone on this thread said: He’s not called the Huckster for nothing.

Learned too much about him during the 2008 primary that turned me off to him as a presidential candidate.

Let him stay on t.v.

He now becomes an official frontrunner in the eyes of the MSM. He always struck me as personally WAAAAYYYYY too genial, even if everything else were OK, to be an effective nominee, let alone President. He’s just sealed his fate with me at least, but as I said, the MSM will rally to him , should he run, because he’s McCain redux.

He as ALWAYS been like this. The problem is that his evangelical base, which included 95% of his supporters, refused to look beyond his Christianity to his political views, which are anathema to most of them. Bob

In another context. I recently stated that there is a difference between principle and posturing : the difference between the tea Party and the "Coffee Party."

The same holds true of political candidates, who seem to live in a different reality with different rules.

Politics allow elastic "pseudo principles."

Principles are NEVER set aside for political expediency.
Not ever, in my lifetime, will I ever vote for such a candidate. That would apply equally to Palin.

“We disagreed respectfully”

Huckabee “disagreed” with this fellow. Don’t you people know how to read?????? This is a terrible twisting of facts.

Now, I too question if Mike has what it takes to be POTUS...but this is just “Huck Muck Hate” that is baseless. I had my fill of this nonsense in 2008...generally from Fred Heads and Romebots.

This is driven NOT by a real hatred of Huckabee as much as the fact that he threaten’s someone else’s pet candidate. Folks....you build successfully build your candidate by extolling their virtues not making up ridiculous ones about their opponents.

I probably won’t vote for Huckabee in a primary. However, IF you have another candidate you prefer....you had better sell me one why to vote for them rather than why not to vote for Mike Huckabee....especially using this nonsense posted in a twisted fashion.

What’s twisted? Huckabee shared a stage with an anti-American leftist who cheered the 9/11 attacks. Then agrees with his characterization that he is a “fellow patriot” the same as Huckabee.
