‘Insane Nonsense’: Beck Stands With Mike Huckabee Over Controversial ‘Uncle Sugar’ Comments
Jan. 24, 2014 3:54pm Erica Ritz

Glenn Beck has made no secret of the fact that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is not his favorite politician, describing him on his radio show Friday as a “very crafty progressive.”

But though Beck may disagree with Huckabee on many issues politically, he still stood in defense of the former Republican governor against what he believes are new baseless attacks.

Huckabee was speaking at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting Thursday when he remarked: “If the Democrats want to insult women by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it.”

But a number of reporters seemingly misquoted Huckabee. NBC’s Kasie Hunt, for instance, tweeting: “Huckabee: Women ‘helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them … birth control because they cannot control their libido.’” Though Hunt later clarified her tweet, Huckabee still made unflattering headlines at outlets like MSNBC and the Huffington Post.

“I want you to understand clearly, I am not a fan of Mike Huckabee,” Beck said. “I’m not here to sweep up after him. But the truth has no agenda. So while I don’t want Mike Huckabee to be president, and I would think that would be a very bad thing …  let’s at least deal with the facts as they are.”

And as Beck sees it, Huckabee said the exact opposite of what much of the media are implying he said.


“What they are doing to him is wrong … and as long as you don’t have a press that is reporting the facts, as long as you have a press that has an agenda, we’re in trouble as a nation,” Beck said. “You have to find those people in the media that will tell you the truth, even if it goes against their own personal desires. Mike Huckabee is not a friend. Mike Huckabee is not helpful. But he’s being wronged. And I stand with him. And TheBlaze will help correct this insane nonsense put out by the other pieces of media.”

Huckabee himself has weighed in on the controversy, saying: “I’m always flattered when people on the far left manufacture a new version of being ‘offended … They can be quite creative in finding something that hurts their feelings.”

Huckabee's comments were right on the mark.  Nothing controversial at all.

Obviously he spoke truth which is why the left is going bonkers.  And editing his comments.

Nope... not to us who actually listened, but as they said on Real News he is a Republican and Republicans should know never to use terms that can be plucked by MSNBC and run on a continuing loop to make it look like you said something you didn't say a - and using the term women's libido gave them exactly what they wanted in that regard.  The women on Real News also pointed out the GOP should let the WOMEN in the GOP - like Susanna Martinez, etc., handle this subject not someone like Huckabee...

Seems like liberals are totally focused on vaginas, killing unborn children, and sodomy.
