Demand Mike Huckabee Apologize for Disgusting Transphobic Remarks

Trans_Flag_Dlloyd

Target: Mike Huckabee, Former Governor of Arkansas and Presidential Candidate

Goal: Demand that politician apologize for transphobic and disgusting remarks.

In a stunning show of the principle that things can always get worse, after former Governor of Arkansas and presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee insulted transgender individuals living in the United States, he went on to admit that he would gladly have committed sexual harassment as a teenager. This type of behavior is sickening and to even allow a man like this to run for President of the United States is an insult to every single American. Sign here to demand that he apologize for his remarks and bow out of the presidential race immediately.

These insulting comments came as part of a speech Huckabee was giving about bathrooms and gender discrimination. In this speech, he said that transgender people offended him and that he feels the need to protect children from them, implying that trans people are somehow all predators instead of just regular people trying to use the restrooms that they feel comfortable and safe in.

After those hurtful statements, Huckabee went on to say, “Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE,” suggesting that he would sexually harass women in the women’s bathrooms if he had a legal loophole to do so. Huckabee outright admitted that the only thing stopping him from becoming a sexual predator was the threat of jail-time. It sounds like children and people in bathrooms need protection from Mike Huckabee, not trans people.

This truly vile man cannot be allowed to ever take part in government again, let alone run for President of the United States. Sign here to demand that Huckabee apologize for these remarks and bow out of the presidential race before he insults the morality and intelligence of any more people.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Former Governor Huckabee,

It has come to my attention that in a speech you delivered last February, you made several extremely upsetting and hurtful remarks about transgender people. You apparently went on to admit that you wished you yourself could use the women’s bathroom to sexually harass people. I don’t understand why you would admit something like that, let alone on a stage while running for President, but it is absolutely unacceptable and I am writing to demand that you publicly apologize for your disgusting statements.

You are not allowed to spew this hateful filth simply because you are a straight white man. Your opinion on what other people do with their lives is meaningless and if trans people offend you, my only response is: too bad. The fact that you publicly admitted that you would be a sexual predator if you could get away with it offends me. Women, children, and possibly other men, don’t need protection from trans people, Mr. Huckabee, they need protection from you. I urge you to apologize to the millions of people you have insulted and bow out of the presidential race immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Mike Huckabee is a pathetic excuse for a human being. For a man who claims to be Christian, he is a poor example of Christ-like thinking and behavior, absent of charity, compassion and morals. If he would just keep his mouth shut and lock himself in a closet, he would be a better presidential “hopeful”.

    • Wendy Waltenberg says:

      How can someone like this be so prominent in American politics ? His stance his back ward on so many issues. He is a dangerous person to have making decisions when he has views like this. He needs to go.

  2. Sue Pettit says:

    I follow Caitlyn on Twitter. I never thought of Bruce. But I am so proud of the depth of Caitlyn. But I’m not signing the petition. He doesn’t stand a chance and I think the community should use this to their advantage. Give him more rope. He’ll hang himself. Bring this up at a strategic time. It’s too busy in the news and you need to capitalize on this.

  3. Sue Pettit says:

    Barbara Tee: you are exactly right. What do you expect from him? He defended Josh Duggar!!!!

  4. Sylvia F. says:

    Huckabee prob, will not. He is a true POS! The world can do with out.

  5. Huckabee and others like him are the reason why so many young people have turned away from religion. Huckabee suffers from a lack of education, lack or empathy, lack of morals, lack of intelligence … and an intolerant and pathetic sense of arrogance. In sum, this man is nothing more than an idiot. Added to that, he’s also delusional if he thinks that he even has a snowball’s chance in hell of becoming our next President !!!!!

  6. Andy McWilliams says:

    Huckabee should remember the old saying, ” It’s better to be quiet and be thought of a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”
