Appearing on Meet The Press, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee refused to condemn the state of South Carolina for flying the Confederate flag, instead saying the state can’t possibly be racist because they elected an ‘Indian’ governor.
Speaking with host Chuck Todd, the possible Republican presidential nominee continually avoided offering a personal opinion on the flag, failing to answer whether he would ever display one. Instead he turned the questions about flying the flag representing the Confederacy into a defense of the people of South Carolina.
“We’re asking, ‘Is South Carolina a racist state because of the flag on their capital grounds?'” Huckabee said. “Here’s what I can tell you. As a frequent visitor to South Carolina, this is a state that largely white people elected a female governor of Indian descent and the first ever African-American senator from the South.”
Huckabee went on to compare the diversity of South Carolina’s lawmakers to liberal bastions such as New York and Massachusetts, before Todd attempted, once again, to turn the discussion back to the flag.
“Let me just ask you this personally,” Todd queried. “Are you comfortable displaying the Confederate battle flag in public?”
“I don’t personally display it anywhere, so it’s not an issue for me,” Huckabee replied. “And so that’s an issue for the people of South Carolina. Do you display it? I doubt it. Does anyone on your panel display it? I doubt it. For us it’s not an issue.”
Huckabee added that he didn’t believe candidates for the presidency should concern themselves with the matter.
Failing to get an answer, Todd moved on.

Hey pretty soon I am going to turn mine upside down, "so what difference does it make"!!!!!!
Wake Up America, these political fools are damaging our Country almost beyond repair and they are worried about a Confederate flag makes me sick!!!!
Get real here these fools are stealing your Country and you worry about this crap???
Pretty soon we may all be flying the Mexican Flag they way things are going, or the United Nations Flag, but sure as heck not our own....Fire them all Raise your Flag and Wake Up America!!!!
They always sneak climate change into everything have you all noticed this fact????
If a lie is told often enough, it will be believed by the minions and kool-aid drinkers.
Would be nice if news media and others would read this but a good chance. They like to push false narrative
They are doing all they can to rewrite actual history by lies and ignorant tales.
Yes they are. They want to wipe our history off the books. Kind of reminds me of the old movie, the Time Machine.
Thanks for the 'right info'
Only the ignorant would in anyway attribute the flag as the contributor to existing race relations. However, we are hearing that very noise coming from the left and even from some of the right, Romney as an example. How can we ever resolve the problems with blacks if we continue to tackle the problem with this mindset.
I've always known that the 'Stars and Bars' was nothing then a Confederate Battle flag. If those moronic fools want to see a flag that represents racist or intolerance just look at the piece of garbage used by ISIS.
If those idiots took the time to do a little research they would find that there was quite a few blacks that fought for the Confederate States of America. They were fighting for their beloved South.
The following was the true flag of the CSA.
It is very easy for those that are not born in the South to want to remove the Confederate flag. But for those of us that were born in the South, and have ancestors that fought and died. To remove the flag is like removing the memory of those ancestors. My ancestor enlisted in a Georgia unit, March 2, 1862 and surrendered at Appromattox, April 9, 1865. He was 44, had a wife and two children. He did not fight for slavery, or states rights. He had no slaves, he was a farmer, and went to fight to protect his family and property.
Gene, I don't know if I had any family that fought for the CSA but if I had I would be just as proud and the way I see it there were a lot of men, both black, white and brown, that fought for those that they loved.
Gene, I wasn't born in the south, I was born in ILL. I never had anything against the south. I now live in Arizona. Am pretty happy here.
Gene, thank you for sharing how your family was dedicated to his family. Unfortunately, the left is lying and changing history that many have lived into outright lies, allusions. Moreover, they are intolerant of those who know and speak the truth. It must be their way and only their way. May God bless you and your family, Gene. We had been a stronger nation because of the sacrifices made. Now, the libs take everything for granted and refuse to serve as your ancestors had.
