We need to document revealing quotes from the contenders for this system's presidency.
Huckabee upholding states' rights and the symbol of slavery
Here is Huckabee's quote defending the waving of slavery's Confederate Battle Flag (always a hotbutton issue for rallying the most reactionary forces in South Carolina):
Gov. Mike Huckabee (currently the main candidate of the Religious Right)
"You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag. In fact, if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell 'em what to do with the pole; that's what we'd do."
The suggestion of anal pole-insertion has its distinct echoes in the reactionary codewords and Huckabee's anti-gay politics.
