Now that's hyperbole.
It is when the comment was sarcastic and wasn't meant literally.
So is deliberate misreporting, evidently.
They'll use anything to demonize Republicans, even if they have to invent it from whole cloth, whether it was Palin's "I can see Russia from my house" which she never said, to Huckabee pointing out that the Democrats think women are defined by their libidos (which was reported by the MSM as it being what Huckabee himself thinks of women). It's one thing to be mindful of what you say. But when people start lying, distorting, or misrepresenting what you say, that's no longer on you. That's on them, and that sort of dishonesty deserves to be called out.
No, your nonsense doesn't help conservatives. He made a sarcastic quip, and now Townhall is deciding to report it as if he was being deadpan serious. Read the full quote that I provided below, or at least play the video link.
What was going through your mind when you composed this drivel? He was obviously being sarcastic in his remarks, as could easily be seen with his comments about Obama and voter fraud. Townhall owes Governor Huckabee an apology.
"Do we really want an America in which instead of having free speech we simply have a few forms of speech that are carefully protected by the radical left, and if you don’t agree with them it’s not just that they want to put their voices to be louder, they want to shut yours down. Freedom of speech in this country, that for which those men grabbed those muskets off the mantle, did never mean that we’re to have fewer voices, but more voices. It wasn’t that we couldn’t dissent, it was that we could, whether you agree with the opinions or not. My gosh, I’m beginning to think that there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United States. When I go to the airport, I have to get in the surrender position, people put hands all over me, and I have to provide photo ID and a couple of different forms and prove that I really am not going to terrorize the airplane. But if I want to go vote, I don’t need a thing. All I gotta do is show up and give them anybody’s name and that’s okay. But again, the President reminded us yesterday, there’s no voter fraud." -- Mike Huckabee
To be blunt, you don't understand sarcasm. You should write out the full quote.

You mean the institutions that came crawling for bailouts, fund gay marriage efforts, and insist on amnesty for illegals? Screw 'em.
Jesus would support someone who believes in the murder of unborn babies and perverts the definition of marriage? Who knew!
