Unlikely presidential candidate Mike Huckabee just can’t stop himself. The former Arkansas Governor’s response to the terror attack in Mali last Friday resulted in Huckabee taking to his Facebook page and Twitter account to suggest that President Obama is a Muslim who will force us all to read the Koran.
“After today’s attack in Mali, the Obama-approved domestic anti-terror plan: Give up your guns and memorize a Koran verse,” Huckabee wrote on Facebook.
He repeated his comment on Twitter:
After today's attack in #Mali, the Obama-approved domestic anti-terror plan: Give up your guns & memorize a Koran verse.

As Raw Story notes, reports say that the attackers in Mali freed some hostages who were able to recite verses from the Koran.
Fear sells really well – just ask ISIL.
Commenter Marsha Woods Mathieu is a good example of that. In response to Huckabee’s ridiculously stupid post, she writes, “I, a citizen of The United States of America, am calling for the arrest and trial of Barack Hussein Obama for treason, under Article 3 of the United States Constitution for aiding and giving comfort to our enemies. If you agree, please copy and repost.”
That gem of a post garnered close to 300 ‘likes’.
Mike Huckabee tells us how he would respond to a terrorist attack if he were president:
The first call I would make after a terrorist attack is to drop to my knees and make a call to God. Pray. #PFF15

In Huck’s world, Obama’s always all, ‘You will read that Koran, Bitch!’ In reality, President Obama has talked the talk and walked the walk of an actual Christian. That sort of actual honesty makes Huckabee very mad online.
