Huckabee to CNN: ‘deal with’ April Ryan as she goes into multi-threat tirade. ‘My people’ will come for you …

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has accused CNN political analyst April Ryan of inciting violence against his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Why? Because following the release Thursday of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which showed that Sanders had exaggerated the truth to the press once, Ryan rushed to her CNN microphone to demand that the Trump administration “start lopping the heads off” officials such as her.

“She outright lied and the people, the American people, can’t trust her,” Ryan said on CNN’s “OutFront.” “They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story.”

“When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ — she needs to go.”

Listen:

The press secretary’s father responded the next evening by accusing Ryan of “incitement to murder” and demanding her White House credentials to be revoked.

“So liberals — is this okay? Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder? Will the ⁦@whca⁩ revoke April Ryan’s credentials? If not, they are gutless tools,” he wrote.

He specifically mentioned “liberals” presumably because it was liberal Democrats who just a week earlier had accused President Donald Trump of “incitement to violence” after he posted a video to Twitter that was critical of Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

The video contrasted dismissive remarks Omar had made last month about the Sept. 11 attacks with jarring video footage from Ground Zero recorded in the aftermath of the terror attack.

According to the left, just that video alone amounted to “incitement to violence.” But if that video counted as “incitement to violence,” then what about Ryan’s far more explicit words?

The president wasn’t the only one to be accused of “incitement.” After Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, an injured war veteran and former Navy SEAL who lost his eye in Afghanistan, also criticized Ilhan, describing her Sept. 11 remarks as “unbelievable,” she herself accused him of “incitement.”

“This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it. My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question. We are ALL Americans!” she wrote in a tweet

Attached to it was a screenshot of Crenshaw’s post and a screenshot of a “Fox & Friends” segment in which Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had asked whether Omar’s “an American first.”

If it’s fair to describe simple criticism as “incitement,” then what about Ryan’s words? Granted, it’s obvious that she’d been using a figure of speech, but that’s not the point. The point is that members of the left need to start living by the same standards they demand that everybody else abide by.

As of Saturday morning, Ryan had not acknowledged this point. Instead, she’d gone on a Twitter tear against not only the former Arkansas governor but his Christian faith as well.

Huckabee never said Ryan should be gutted like a deer. During a discussion with Fox Business Network host Stu Varney two years ago about the infamous #PieGate, Huckabee jokingly warned that one should never “mess with a Southern woman and her homemade pies.”

“Stuart, don’t ever and I mean don’t ever mess with a Southern woman and her homemade pies. It is as dangerous as when you hear a Southern woman begin her sentence with ‘bless your heart.’ It means you’re about to be gutted like a deer and just don’t know it,” he’d said.

He too had been using a figure of speech.

Listen:

What’s interesting is how Ryan ended her tweet storm by threatening Huckabee, writing that “you and your daughter and this administration will be held accountable” if something were to happen to her. Hmm. Going by the left’s zany standards, that too sounds like incitement to violence.

Shame, shame, shame!
