People who report terror suspects don't necessarily get action — and in fact may be accused of being bigots, according to Mike Huckabee.

Writing Wednesday on his Facebook page, Huckabee said in the case of alleged New York City and New Jersey bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami, "this is starting to sound like déjà vu all over again."

"Just as with previous attackers and would-be attackers on US soil, the suspect … was known to authorities, but allowed to proceed anyway," the former Arkansas governor wrote.

"In this case, he had turned so violent and radical that his own father notified the FBI that he suspected his son was a terrorist following a "domestic incident" in which Rahami allegedly attacked his mother and brother.

But Huckabee said that after a two-month investigation, federal agents informed Mohammad Rahami his son was not a terrorist.

"So his father said 'okay' and withdrew the allegation. Now, he says the FBI is telling him his son is a terrorist. He said, 'I say okay,"' Huckabee said.

"The father doesn't understand English very well, but even someone who did would likely be just as baffled by a government that urges us to report anything suspicious, then fails to take action when we do. Except, of course, when they take action by calling us bigots for reporting it."
