In a recent radio broadcast, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee said he doesn't think that gay people have experienced the same level of discrimination as black people.
During an appearance on a Baton Rouge radio station, recorded by BuzzFeed, he began by saying, "Because if you equate same-sex marriage to a civil right," and then backed up to explain himself before finishing his thought.
“First of all, what an insult to African-Americans, who were hosed in the street, who were beaten, who were truly discriminated against with separate restrooms, separate drinking fountains, separate entrances. That was true discrimination and it was horrible."
"It’s hard to say that the redefinition of marriage is on the same basis as was racial discrimination throughout our history."
After that, he hinted that the very mentality which would legalize same-sex marriage is the same one which would legalize polygamous marriage. “If you live by the sword you die by the sword, and the same court that said, ‘Sure, marriage can be between two men, two women,’ ultimately it will mean marriage can be between any group of people who want to have a marriage because you can’t deny it once you’ve opened the door.”
