During an appearance in Fox Business this Monday, former Arkansas governor and current Fox News contributor, Mike Huckabee, gave his thoughts regarding the attacks on the Jewish community in various incidents this month, most recently the stabbing attack during a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey, New York.
Interestingly, Huckabee didn’t narrow in on the subject of antisemitism, but instead framed his comments about attacks on “religion” in general, saying that the problem stems from an increasingly secular world beset by an ongoing “spiritual war” between “good and evil.”
“The reason we’re having a lot of these attacks is, we need to step back and realize, this is a spiritual battle — and I’m gonna be very clear — the reason you’re seeing attacks against people in a Hanukkah service or synagogue is because there is a spiritual war going on in the world,” he said.
He also criticized the education kids receive in school.
“When we have an education system that from the time these kids are tots tells them that there is nothing that is really right nor wrong, it is whatever they think it is, whatever they feel it, whatever they believe it is, and that results in an adult becoming where they also think they don’t have to tune their lives.”
Huckabee concluded his thoughts with a musical analogy:
“Before you play a song you have to tune your instrument, so what to tune it to? Do you tune it to what you tune it to? No, you tune it to a standard. We’re a culture and society that is not tuning to any standard other than what we want, we are selfish. We’ve sat around and created this culture where it is all about me, and that is a dangerous place for us to continue going.”
