“If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague,” said Mike Huckabee during his 1992 run for the Senate. At the time he also said, “I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk.” So does Huckabee really want to quarantine homosexuals?

In a recent interview Huckabee said he’s not backing down, saying only that if he had 15 years more medical knowledge back then, his response would have been different. In a related story, Huckabee said if elected President his administration will combat global warming by deporting Mexican immigrants.
