Mike Huckabee: If They Tear Down 'Offensive' Memorials Can We Tear Down Abortion Clinics?

The former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, has questioned the moral reasoning behind the tearing down of historical memorials and monuments, as calls for statue's of George Washington to be removed gain momentum. Huckabee questions whether he is allowed to tear down anything that is offensive to him - for example, an abortion clinic. 

“Anarchists go and just tear down the statues [of Confederates and historical figures who were slave owners] because they are impatient with politicians doing it,” Huckabee said. “… that is not acceptable behavior, it is vandalism, it is anarchy, and it would be like me saying ‘I don’t like abortion clinics, so I’m going to go to tear them down because I find them offensive.’”

"We are bordering on anarchy,” the former pro-life presidential candidate said, “having a select group of people tear something down because it offends them personally.” 

“Al Sharpton is calling for the destruction of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington. You have a pastor in Chicago asking that Washington Park have that statue there removed because George Washington owned slaves," Huckabee said, according to IJR. 

The he asked: “Where does it stop?”
