Ordained minister and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) complained on Tuesday that Black Lives Matter activists are trying to erase “history” by calling for the removal of statues depicting a “white” Jesus Christ.
During a discussion on Fox Business, host Stuart Varney was taken aback by a tweet from activist Shaun King, who argued: “The statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.”
Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.
They are a form of white supremacy.
Always have been.
In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?
Tear them down.

“I can barely believe this,” Varney said. “Look, I’m not happy when I hear this nonsense.”
“The only thing that you can do is to laugh at these loons,” Huckabee replied. “First of all, what an idiotic thing we’re seeing going on all over the world with people tearing down every kind of statue.”
“They defaced a statue of Stevie Ray Vaughn!” he exclaimed. “This has gone beyond anything that we can imagine.”
According to Huckabee, the “real challenge” facing the world is “a culture that doesn’t understand its history.”
“If you and I woke up tomorrow and had no clue what our names were, where we’d been to school, who our friends and family were, we’d be lost and we would be living in a world of chaos,” he opined. “When a culture doesn’t know its history, it’s living in chaos.”
Huckabee added: “We don’t know our history, we’re living in chaos. And these crazy people on the left are now becoming like Islamic terrorists destroying every last vestige or art and culture and trying to erase history, even the part of it that we ought to embrace.”

‘A bridge too far’: Fox News analyst destroys Barr’s ‘absurd’ desire to charge rioters with sedition
Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former judge, on Thursday pushed back against Attorney General William Barr's call to charge violent protesters with sedition.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Barr told federal prosecutors that they could use sedition laws in cases where protests turn violent.
Napolitano explained during an appearance on Fox & Friends that charging protesters with sedition would be a "bridge too far."
"There's nothing wrong with aggressive prosecution," Napolitano said. "But this is not the case for sedition. I mean, the sedition laws -- which by the way, go back to 1798 -- the sedition laws were written for those who plan and plot to overthrow the government, either by violence or by some other means."
‘It’s verboten?’ Newt Gingrich cries out after Fox News cuts him off for blaming violence on George Soros
A Fox News panel shut down former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Wednesday after he tried to blame George Soros for violent protests in America.
Gingrich brought up the liberal billionaire's name during a discussion about the cost of violence linked to anti-police protests.
"Look, the number one problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up," Gingrich opined. "Progressive district attorney are anti-police, pro-criminal and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros' money and they are a major cause of the violence we're seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the streets."
