Minerva @ Midnight: today in GOP foolishness
Previous guy and the GQP continue to be weird and entirely predictable.
Weird and even entirely predictable

Mike Huckabee doubled down on the usual RW hate, timing it for his evangelical Easter program shown on some shopping channels, because there’s no such thing as bad public relations.
I’ve decided to “identify” as Chinese. Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my “values” and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to @MLB games. Ain’t America great?

Amid near-daily reports of horrific hate crimes against Asian Americans and transgender Americans, Mike Huckabee is under massive criticism for posting a hateful, racist, anti-Asian, transphobic tweet that’s also anti-democracy, amid a rise in vicious and violent hate crimes.
Huckabee is the host of “Huckabee” on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), and is the father of Arkansas GOP gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former Trump White House press secretary. For decades Huckabee has played the part of a conservative Christian, using his faith as a sword and a shield.
“I’ve decided to ‘identify’ as Chinese,” Huckabee tweeted Saturday. “Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my ‘values’ and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to @MLB games. Ain’t America great?” he asked, mocking the millions of Americans furious about Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp signing the nation’s worst voter suppression bill into law. On Friday Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star Game out of Atlanta and hundreds of corporations and organizations have denounced the legislation designed to make voting even more difficult, especially for the state’s Black and low-income voters.
Remember when your sociopath son murdered a stray dog and then you fired the head of the Arkansas state police because he wouldn’t help you cover it up? Good stuff, Mike.

Hey Mike Huckabee, I asked around and Coke likes me, Delta agrees with my values, I wear Nikes and my hometown Dodgers won the World Series.
But it’s not because of my ethnicity. It’s because I’m not a sh*thead like you who is adding fuel to anti-Asian hate.#StopAAPIHate https://t.co/Zs9spYu9GL
