In an interview with the California newspaper The Visalia Times-Delta, Huckabee said the GOP would only further decline in influence should it alienate social conservatives — largely considered the most energetic and loyal faction of the party.Of course, this has the nihilist lefties giddy to no end. For example, here's Ron Beasley at the pro-terror Newshoggers, "Sorry Mike, hate based Christianity is not the road to salvation for the Republican Party.
"Throw the social conservatives the pro-life, pro-family people overboard and the Republican party will be as irrelevant as the Whigs," he said in reference to the American political party that largely disbanded in the mid 1800s.
"They'll basically be a party of gray-haired old men sitting around the country club puffing cigars, sipping brandy and wondering whatever happened to the country. That will be the end of the party," he said in the interview published Thursday.
That's the slur, of course, if you're not pro-abortion, pro-gay licentiousness, and pro-open borders.
As always, it's a smear and it dead wrong. Recall Gary Andres' argument from the other day, "Republicans did not lose the 2008 election because they were out of step ideologically with average Americans."
But the leftists don't want you to know that, naturally, so they'll excoriate conservatives as "evil" in order to ram down their tyrannical agenda on the huge block of voters in the middle.
