On Thursday at the Republican National Committee winter meeting, Mr. Huckabee sent a clear signal to organizations like the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, FreedomWorks and others who are supporting efforts to defeat elected Republicans, such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), to stop it, according to The Huffington Post.

“Whatever differences we have, compared to the differences that we have to the other party, they’re small,” Mr. Huckabee said. “And that’s why I’ve asked Republicans, let’s stop using the term ‘RINO'” — Republican In Name Only. Let’s stop calling each other somehow less Republican than someone else. Be for the person you’re for.”

Huckabee said that he will be traveling to Auschwitz next week for the anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp, and noted that the horror of the Holocaust began with the devaluation of people.

“It all started when people were devalued, when people were deemed ‘less than someone else,'” Huckabee said. “We look back on that time in history and we think, ‘How can educated people, university trained, how can a nation like Germany with all of its resources, with its vast level of its population with higher education, get to a place where they can do something so heinous?’ You realize that the only way you can end up there is when you start with the idea that people just aren’t as valuable as you are.”

  1. Sounds reasonable enough. In all fairness the Tea Party and the Rinos have more in common with each other than with the Democrats, especially since the Limosine Liberal types haved pretty much kicked out the “blue dog” and working class/ethnics from the Democratic Party. The current Democrat party (no matter what Hikind and Greenfield believe) is increasing quasi-socialist and inclined to make support of sexual perversion the “litmus” test for inclusion. We need a strong united conservative movement to oppose them, and that means the RINOs and the Tea Party have to work together.

    Remember that in Germany, the moderates (both socialist and conservative) knocked each other out, leaving the field open for the Nazis.
