Wolf Blitzer Mike HuckabeeFormer Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee believes the most famous civil rights pioneer of all time would not be a fan of Black Lives Matter.

Appearing on CNN’s “The Situation Room” on Tuesday, the 2016 Republican presidential hopeful told host Wolf Blitzer that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be “appalled” by the message of the malcontent group.

“When I hear people scream ‘black lives matter,’ I’m thinking, of course they do. But all lives matter. It is not that any life matters more than another,” he said. “That’s the whole message, I think, that Dr. King tried to present, and I think he’d be appalled by the notion that we’re elevating some lives above others.”

Huckabee noted that he personally faced death threats when, as a pastor, he integrated an all white church.  He added that he believes racism is “more of a sin problem than a skin problem.”
