Huckabee: Environmentalism led to Columbine

I may be hanging out with these guys on Jan. 20, 2009.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s spotlight grew a few weeks back when he said that God was responsible for his rise in the polls.
This statement cemented his position among evangelicals as their candidate for the White House. It also cemented his position among many other people as a stark raving loon.
Now comes a quote from his 1998 book, Kids Who Kill: Confronting Our Culture of Violence, in which he blames school shootings, in part, on environmentalism.
That’s right. You tree-hugging hippies helped create Columbine. Here’s the quote:

Abortion, environmentalism, AIDS, pornography, drug abuse, and homosexual
activism have fragmented and polarized our communities.

I expect odd birds such as Huckabee to blame abortion and pornography for violence in our culture—but environmentalism?
Of course! That’s what goes through the mind of every kid who goes postal in school! They’re doing it because they care about the earth! Fewer people mean less greenhouse gases, which mean less global warming. What else could Ryan Harris and Dylan Klebold have been thinking about? So I suppose, by this same logic, that it’s Al Gore’s fault that our kids are killing each other? Thank you so much for enlightening me, ya jagoff.
If this guy gets elected, I’m moving to friggin’ Canada. It should be fairly temperate by then, if Huckabee’s attitude toward the environment remains unchecked. We wouldn’t want to fragment our communities, even if they’re underwater.

Well, when you're right, you're right, honey.
