Mike Huckabee Echoes Gun Conspiracy Theorists on His Radio Show (VIDEO)

On his radio show this Wednesday, former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee endorsed the conspiracy theory that the Obama Administration is planning to confiscate the firearms of law-abiding citizens and impose a Nazi Germany-like “dictatorship” in the U.S.

Huckabee was responding to a caller who said that she was “very concerned” about the apparent impending gun grab.

“It seems like there’s so many people who have not read and do not understand how quickly Germany was turned into — it was a democracy, then turned into a dictatorship by everyone having to register their guns and then they went door to door and collected them,” the caller said.

“People do forget that,” Huckabee responded. “And by the way, know that when you bring that up you get people who get crazy on us, and they’ll start saying, ‘oh there you go comparing to the Nazis.’ And I understand the reaction, but it’s the truth.”

“You cannot take people’s rights away if they’re resisting and if they have the means to resist,” he continued. “But once they’re disarmed and the people who are trying to take over have all the power, not just political, not just financial, but they have the physical power to domesticate us and to subjugate us to their will, there’s not a whole lot we can do about it other than just plan to die in the course of resistance.”

Huckabee went on to say that in “every society and culture where dictators take over,” getting “control of the military and the police” in addition to “all of the citizens” is one way to make sure that people can’t organize an armed resistance to a government takeover.

“Gosh I hope it doesn’t come to that,” Huckabee lamented.

    Um… I think the President of the United States already has control over the military and the police. Do you want to retract any of your asinine comments, or do you still plan to stick with your delusional conservative rant?

    the former Gove should read a history book. The Nazis were more like the gun nuts than the majority of us who are in favor of reasonable gun control. Hiltler loosened gun control rules. He was in favor of Germans being armed. He at first even loosened rules for Jews. He later on went to restrict gun ownership to Jews as he was starting the Holocust. Hitlers anti gun comments were made in regard to conquered lands in Russia, not in regard to his own people.
