Yeah, we’re shocked. Shocked! David Barton, the phony historian and head of Texas-based WallBuilders, is once again repeating the zombie lie that President Obama doesn’t mention God in his Thanksgiving proclamations. That’s simply not true, as we pointed out last year. Our friends at Right Wing Watch report, Barton addressed the issue again with Andrew […]
When David Barton broke tea party hearts on Wednesday by telling Glenn Beck he was passing on next year’s race for John Cornyn’s seat in the Senate, he spoke of doing some polling and described the race as “winnable.” If that is in fact the case, then Barton has made the leap from revising history […]
See, if David Barton had just acknowledged that climate change is actually a thing, and that humans are a major contributing factor, we could have possibly, for once, agreed on something. But noooooooo, David Barton just had to be David Barton, and he kept going. The policy he’s referring to in the following quote is […]
Our friends at Right Wing Watch have noted a lot of crazy coming out of Texas recently. Here are a few choice examples: On Wednesday Right Wing Watch posted video of self-styled “historian” David Barton pretending to know something about science. The head of Texas-based WallBuilders actually reveals that his knowledge of science is about as pitiful as his […]
Following is even more proof that self-styled “historian” David Barton is little more than a propaganda artist: now he’s rewriting his own history. Yet Barton’s distorted versions of history are still getting traction on the political right, as Republican state Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston demonstrated last week. Let’s start with Barton. The president of […]
We expected all kinds of crazy when East Texas Congressman Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert joined David Barton and Rick Green on the latter duo’s WallBuilders Live radio program on Monday. And sure enough, that’s what we got. The three agreed, for example, that the Southern Poverty Law Center — one of the nation’s leading civil […]
Blogger and psychology professor Warren Throckmorton has a new piece up exposing how David Barton, the pseudo-historian who founded the religious-right organization WallBuilders in Texas, is trying to cover up errors in his historical work. Barton’s apparent strategy: revise his claims but don’t tell anyone about those corrections. Throckmorton points out how a Barton tour […]
First, credit to our friends at Right Wing Watch for capturing the audio below. Next, there’s not much that can be added. David Barton‘s comments today, that AIDS is punishment against gays, are vile and speak for themselves. Equally vile is what he added, that if the all-powerful God is somehow bested by humanity and […]
David Barton Promotes Disputed Immigration Study Co-Authored by Guy Who Says Hispanics Are Dumber than Whites
David Barton, the religious right’s favorite pseudo-historian, is promoting a disputed Heritage Foundation study that says immigration reform will cost taxpayers trillions of dollars in welfare and other public costs. We’ll leave to pro-reform groups to argue why the Heritage study is flawed. (But we’ll note that some conservative are arguing that immigration reform would […]
For David Barton, apparently everything is a commodity. Stuff like this makes it hard to take Barton and his ilk seriously when they complain that others are disrespectful of people of faith. They have done all they can to turn the National Day of Prayer into an occasion to promote a political agenda. Now they’re […]
