The Muppets Are Better Than Mike Huckabee

Before we get to Mike Huckabee and The Muppets we need to go back to last week when Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy made comments about how he and his company support "the traditional family."

In an interview with the Baptist Press he said, "We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that...we know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

So, what does his ignorant and hateful stance have to do with Mike Huckabee and The Muppets you ask?

Well, last week, only a couple days after Mr. Cathy's statements, The Jim Henson Company (the company, as you know, behind such shows as Fraggle Rock and The Muppets), severed their ties with Chick-fil-A. They had partnered with the restaurant chain to offer their toys with meals from mid-July through August 18th. And what did Huckabee do? Well, he didn't come out and add his voice to the chorus of anger towards the restaurant chain.

Nope, this former Governor of Arkansas has had enough of, what he calls the "vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry" aimed at Chick-fil-A. Now, the inherent irony in that statement is almost enough to make your head explode, but let's move on for a moment.

Not only is he not speaking out against Chick-fil-A, he announced on his Facebook page that August 1st will be "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," where he is encouraging people to eat at a Chick-fil-A. To quote the former Fox News host:

"The goal is simple: Let's affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1. Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant."

Again, the irony and ignorance of his comments make you want to laugh and cry.

First off, I'm not sure how many "left-leaning" corporations have come out in support of profanity. Did I miss the time when I could have gone into a Starbucks and ordered a "For Here, Damn Grande, Non-Fat, No Water, 180 Degrees, Fucking Tazo® Chai Tea Latte?" Can we all agree how awesome that would be, though? I would actually make a point of going to Starbucks if they added profanity to their drink and size names.

Second, do we think Huckabee knows the definition of the words "homophobic" and "intolerant?"

Intolerance: unwillingness to accept... behaviour that differs from one's own

Homophobic: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals

Hey Mike, do you know why, when people like you and Dan Cathy, as you put it, "affirm traditional values, we're considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers and intolerant?" It's because that is pretty much the exact definition of what you are saying!

To finish off this week's post we go from one former governor and a restaurant chain president saying something stupid to a drunk guy in a bar saying something stupid. Although, as opposed to what Huckabee and Cathy said, what the guy in the bar said wasn't hurtful towards a large segment of the population, it was just very hurtful to himself. His name is William Bonner and he said, "I bet I could light my head on fire." Check out the video:

And just for Mike and Dan, here are some "non-traditional" websites they might enjoy: Old And Young Lesbians, MILF Next Door and Three Pillows.
