Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee likes to play bass guitar and he likes to crush progressive dreams.
His most recent comments have the internet buzzing as he’s suggested that VP-elect Kamala Harris could potentially be impeached for her past support of BLM and Antifa rioters.
There’s no question that Harris sided with the demonstrators who tore this country apart in the middle of the pandemic last summer and took lives and smashed property. The question is what should happen about it.
If it’s up to the Democrats, but if conservatives want to start thinking like their adversaries then maybe Harris should face consequences in Congress, at least that’s what Huckabee thinks.
Huckabee Calls Out the Democrats’ Double Standard
As Huckabee points out, if political violence being encouraged by politicians is an impeachable offense then Harris is guilty since she offered to bail out BLM and Antifa criminals during last summer’s horrific wave of violence across America’s cities.
“If we’re going to impeach Donald Trump for what he said, then we’d better impeach Kamala Harris for saying the things she did last summer about the rioters and looters,” Huckabee said, adding that maybe it’s also time for “establishing a monetary fund to get them out of jail on bail so they could get back to the riots.”
What do you think, is Huckabee on the right track here?
If you take a page from the Democrat playbook then that’s how it would go, so this isn’t just idle speculation.
Harris’ Past Support of Violent Rioters and Looters
Following the death of George Floyd in police custody last summer, rioters and Antifa thugs swept through many American cities smashing, burning and looting, especially in areas with a high amount of minority-owned businesses in Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Los Angeles and many other cities.
They caused incredible amounts of damage and killed dozens of innocent people including retired Black police officer David Dorn who was shot while trying to stop thugs from stealing a pawn shop TV.
Meanwhile, Harris backed the Minnesota Freedom Fund (Orwellian enough name?). Harris asked supporters to “chip in” to “help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”
Well, guess what? Some of those who needed bail in Minnesota needed bail because they were behind bars for destruction of property, assault and rioting. The fund was actually even used to bail out child abusers and a murderer, so it gets even worse.
Harris is a lawyer, and to think she didn’t know how provocative her statement was is absurd. Of course she knew, but it was worth it to her to stoke the ongoing violence and put big money behind a bailout fund.
Why shouldn’t she be impeached?
Kamala Harris helped violent rioters in Minnesota get out of jail to do more damage.
Don't believe her when she says she "condemns the violence"—look at her record, not her words. https://t.co/lL2aYjxPZA

Where Do We Go From Here?
Although Huckabee has said he doesn’t agree with President Trump’s statements about fighting the election results and believes VP Mike Pence was in the right to play it cool during the past few weeks, he also doesn’t believe that anything Trump did rises to an impeachable offense.
However, Huckabee’s point still stands. If it is an impeachable offense for Trump then why not for Harris once she’s in office?
It might sound like a joke at this point, but with the political theater going on everyday around us it could quickly become more than a joke. After all, putting your support behind bailing out people arrested including in riots and violent acts is no laughing matter and could potentially be something to be impeached over.
How do you think the Democrats would like a taste of their own medicine?
