This Kim Davis thing has certainly shaken the biggest nuts out of the top of the tree. Check out the latest idiocy from Mike Huckabee, as he tells Michael Medved that the Dred Scott decision is still in force:
Mike Huckabee: Dred Scott decision still ‘the law of the land’
”…‘Well, how dare you say it’s not the law of the land?’ Because that’s their phrase — ‘it’s the law of the land,’” Mr. Huckabee, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said in audio obtained by Buzzfeed. “Michael, [the] Dred Scott decision of 1857 still remains to this day the law of the land, which says that black people aren’t fully human. Does anybody still follow the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision?”September 11, 2015 at 9:59 am #13791mike_kolbParticipant

And the batshittery continues to escalate.
In a teleconference uploaded to YouTube, Oath Keeper founder Stewart Rhodes discussed the operation with Kentucky sheriff Denny Peyman, Missouri Oath Keeper John Karriman, and West Virginia Oath Keeper Allen Landieri. The group claimed that their new mission had nothing to do with same-sex marriage and insisted they were only offering to guard Davis because the judge had acted illegally.
“People should consider her under our protection,” Rhodes says in the teleconference. “We’ll make sure that our people are keeping a close eye on the situation and we’re going have boots on the ground to keep watch regardless, because this judge needs to understand that he’s not going be able to just go grab this lady whenever he feels like it.”September 11, 2015 at 1:50 pm #13801LurkingGrendelParticipant
Right. Because if she violates a legal court order, (again) and therefore is going to be remanded to custody, these delusional nut jobs are going to open fire on officers of the court.
To protect a criminal.

They also love the Dred Scott decision, which basically said that non-whites don’t have Constitutional rights because the Framers never intended for the document to apply to them.
Surprises me that Huckabee is so aghast at the Dred Scott decision when his ilk, in their hearts, esssntially agree with it.
