Mike Huckabee Slams Dem Leaders, Says ‘Squad’ Has ‘Co-Opted’ Party

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) blasted Democratic leaders, saying that Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and other “Squad” members have “co-opted” the party.

During a Friday interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Huckabee weighed in on House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) tweet from Thursday where he went after President Donald Trump and “Squad” members

Huckabee blasted the Democrats as not being willing to “call” out members of their party, saying that the House Judiciary chairman was the “first” to do it but still had to build “a big wall” around him by targeting Trump.

“It shows there is a different Democratic Party at work today than there was,” said Huckabee. “It used to be, John, that Democrats were reliable supporters of Israel — in fact, even more so than Republicans. And that no longer is the case.”

Watch the video here:

The former Arkansas governor went on to torch Democratic leaders for letting Omar, Tlaib, and other “Squad” members become the “face and voice” of their party when it came to Israel policy and claimed that the “Squad” had “co-opted their own party.”

“The sad fact is: it’s these freshman members of Congress, like Omar and Tlaib, who are now the face and voice of the Democratic Party when it relates to the issue of Israel policy. And it ought to be [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer and [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi, and even Nadler and other leaders, but it’s not. It’s these two people and other members of the ‘Squad.’

“They have co-opted their own party, and it’s tragic. Not just for the party, it’s tragic for the world, and for really understanding or any resolve of issues in the Middle East.”

Huckabee’s comments came the day after the House Judiciary chairman went after the president as well as the two “Squad” members in a tweet.

As IJR Red previously reported, Nadler condemned the “growing anti-Semitism” in American “political dialogue” and torched Trump’s controversial “disloyalty” remarks as an “anti-Semitic trope.”

Nadler also took aim at Tlaib and Omar for sharing a cartoon he declared “can surely be read for its vile underlying message.”

James, The Socialist Sisters are ONLY four votes. Even Pelosi understands this. The problem is this: the Dim party is split between the *ahem* moderates and the far-Left which espouses free stuff, open borders, butchering babies even after birth, and fantasies about stealing other people’s money and property. It’s too bad so many in the Dim party are enabling these parasites, who don’t even have the commitment to run as their own party. q.v. Bernie who runs as an independent, is actually a Commie, but will only now call himself a Socialist. There are too many in the party sucking… Read more »

It’s a shame that the MSM will not give either Huckabee or Nadler coverage equal to what they give the Twisted Sisters.

Ever wonder if AOC, Omar, and Tlaib would be as *ahem* effective IF they didn’t receive they coverage they do. At least we don’t hear much about the 4th Beatle, Ringo, err, Ayanna.

The Commie Quad Squad has very successfully succeeded in dividing what remains of the former DemocRATic Party. Their Marxism (from AOC) and the anti-Semitic rhetoric (from Omar, Tlaib) have destroyed the Party and the spineless “leaders” of the Party are too scared to do anything to rein in the junior-sized, one term misfits. The majority of what’s left of the Party has continued to deteriorate and sink to Socialist trash levels – thanks to AOC, et al – which only helps the decent, responsible people in America who are still interested in AMERICA as a Republic; NOT as a Third… Read more »
