Mike Huckabee Is Talking Trash Against Women
Mike Huckabee, an unemployed former politician, thinks he should be the next President of the United States. How is an out-of-work guy like Huckabee going to gain enough support to get elected to the White House?
His plan is simple: Tear other people down. Specifically, Mike Huckabee is launching verbal attacks against women. Huckabee’s campaign strategy is to shame women into silence, to make them feel small so that he can look bigger.
Mike Huckabee’s latest slur is against Northern women. He doesn’t like the way they talk.
Specifically, Huckabee accuses women in the North of saying the word “fuck” too much. “For a woman to say them in a professional setting, we would only assume that this is a very – as we would say in the South, that’s just trashy,” he told a radio show host this morning.
I’ve worked with a good number of women in many different Northern cities, but I can’t recall any office where the women were in the habit of using the word “fuck” on a regular basis. I have to wonder what kind of professional experience Mike Huckabee was having, to hear the word so much – if he really did.
Whether women in the northern United States really say the word “fuck” a lot at work, the way that Mike Huckabee targets women’s language in particular is concerning. He accuses women in the North of being “trashy”, but he doesn’t have any specific insults to hurl against men.
Mike Huckabee seems most outraged at the simple idea that women would have the freedom to use the same kinds of words as men. When men say “fuck”, he shrugs. When women say “fuck”, Mike Huckabee loses self control and throws a fit.
The big problem isn’t what women say. The big problem is that Mike Huckabee thinks that he has the legitimate authority to tell women what they can and cannot say.
