Huckabee: Dems More Interested in Protecting Islam’s Image Than Protecting Americans

Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee ripped the Democratic candidates for avoiding the phrase “radical Islam” at the debate last night.

CBS moderator John Dickerson asked all three candidates about Republican criticisms that the United States needs to be able to identify radical Islam for the terroristic threat that it is.

On Fox & Friends this morning, Huckabee told Tucker Carlson first that he was pretty surprised by Bernie Sanders identifying climate change as the biggest threat because “a sunburn isn’t as bad as a beheading.”

On the subject of radical Islam, Huckabee said of the Democrats, “They’re more interested in protecting the image of Islam than they are in protecting Americans.”

He made it clear not all Muslims are terrorists, but “the ones that are blowing up people… it just happens that they’re all radical Muslims.”
