Huckabee won’t be bullied into Bruce-love: I wish I’d known if I ‘felt like a woman’ I’d get to shower with them

Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is pulling no punches in going after accommodations being made for transgender people.

In a video released by World Net Daily and uncovered by Buzzfeed, the former Arkansas governor told the crowd at the February National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, Tenn., that changes to accommodate men and women who want to live as the opposite gender pose a “threat” to society.

“For those who do not think that we are under threat, simply recognize that the fact that we are now in city after city watching ordinances say that your 7-year-old daughter, if she goes into the restroom, cannot be offended and you can’t be offended if she’s greeted there by a 42-year-old man who feels more like a woman than he does a man,” Huckabee said.

“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 P.E.,” he added. “I’m pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, ‘Coach, I think I’d rather shower with the girls today.’

“There’s something inherently wrong with forcing little children to be a part of this social experiment,” Huckabee said. “I’m not against anybody, I’d just like for somebody to bring their brain to work someday and not leave it on the bed stand when they show up to govern.”

Predictably, “tolerant” liberals on Twitter lost their minds when they found out Huckabee doesn’t share their exact views.
