Huckabee Sells ‘Obamacare’ Gun Targets

Share

Mike Huckabee is offering supporters a truly remarkable piece of campaign swag: In exchange for a donation, they can take their guns and shoot up a target marked with the word ‘Obamacare’!

“Let’s show President Obama we believe in the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment – not gun control,” Huckabee’s fundraising page says. “We stand opposed to his executive order AND his out-of-control Washington policies.”

“Donate $25 and receive a pack of three targets for your next trip to the range.”

In addition to the Obamacare target pictured above (which depicts the president’s name and the “O” campaign logo) Huckabee is also offering donors the chance to shoot Common Core education standards — which are not Obama’s policies at all, but began as an initiative of the states to synchronize their school curricula. (Obama has supported Common Core, and created financial incentives to adopt it. And so the right wing has turned it into another bogeyman.)

Friendly apple for the teacher?

And there is also the large and complicated federal tax code, which Huckabee wants to replace with a regressive national retail sales tax as the federal government’s primary source of income.

It’s perhaps worth noting that if some hypothetical Huckabee supporter were to use these targets but then suffer an injury — perhaps due to a lack of proper education in the physical sciences — their medical aid would be protected by Obamacare, which might in turn help them to get a tax refund.

    This is why our country is divided by hate. His action disrespects all those people who have health insurance for the first time. Another fake Christian who is really just another jackass.

      I repeat: Christianity was able to spread throughout the globe by violence, not by the ‘Sermon On The Mount’

      Have you ever googled “American Taliban” ? That term has been used for over a decade, appropriately

    Why is this even allowed? It’s a threat, the same that jackass of a Palin had during her campaign when she featured bulls-eye targets on her website. Huckabee and Palin both should be charged because what they practice is not free speech, but hate speech designed to incite the crazies we have in America.
