Fox News host Mike Huckabee remarked on his syndicated radio show on Wednesday that Muslims act like “uncorked animals” on their "so-called holiest days."
Huckabee said that recent threats against U.S. embassies in Muslim countries occurred at the end of Ramadan, reports The Daily Caller.
“I know we’re not supposed to say anything unkind about Islam," Huckabee said (audio below). "I mean, it’s politically incorrect. I get that. But can someone explain to me why it is that we tiptoe around a religion that promotes the most murderous mayhem on the planet in their so-called holiest days."
He added: "You know, if you’ve kept up with the Middle East, you know that the most likely time to have an uprising of rock throwing and rioting comes on the day of prayer on Friday. So the Muslims will go to the mosque, and they will have their day of prayer and they come out of there like uncorked animals, throwing rocks and burning cars."
As he often does, after attacking groups that he does not like, Huckabee reassured his audience that he is not a bigot against those groups.
“You know, I’m just pointing out that for all of the demands that we’re supposed to be so very polite, and I’m not saying all Muslims are radical and I am not saying that all Muslims are violent. I’m not,” Huckabee said. "But we as a government recognize that the most likely times for them to erupt in some type of terrorist activity, violent storming of an embassy, is on their holy days."
He added: “I mean, for most of us, the holiest days that come in the Christian world, particularly Christmas and Easter, I don’t really recall that the government has to issue a warning and say ‘Look Out! It’s Easter! Those Christians are coming. They’ll be throwing eggs all over town.'”
The Fox news host failed to mention the numerous wars that Christians have been involved with before, during and after Christian holidays.
During an interview in 2011, Huckabee was upset at Christian churches for allowing Muslims to use their buildings for worship and suggested that adult movies in church would be next, noted TheHill.com.
