Huckabee: More Sanctions On Indiana Than On Iran

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and potential 2016 presidential candidate, chastised Americans for being more outraged over Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act than President Obama's Iran deal. He called the protests a distraction from the tentative nuclear proliferation deal with Iran. Huckabee also said:

“Somebody who is a blogger made an observation this week that – I thought it was interesting – that there’s been more pressure this week to put sanctions on Indiana than on Iran. I thought that was a pretty wise observation, and it’s been a real almost distraction from something that is a whole lot more significant in terms of our national security than anything that’s been occupying the front pages here.”

He then went on to talk about the motives by stating:

“The reason that those corporations put the pressure on Indiana and Arkansas was because the militant gay community put the pressure on them." Huckabee referred to Apple's business with Saudi Arabia and Wal-Mart's business in China. He ended by saying, "I think these corporations really ought to either be consistent — quit making money from these countries that are really oppressing human rights, and quit bowing to the pressure, and just sell their stuff. That's what they're in business for- sell stuff."
