Our Friend Rob Boston of Americans United has documented the fraudulent distortions and outright lies committed by David Barton. David Barton wants to demolish the “wall of separation” between religion and government. In the video below he introduces Mike Huckabee as “a guy who would be a great Black Robe Regiment guy … he has the mentality of take the Bible and apply it to every aspect of the culture.” He really sees Mike Huckabee as the best candidate to put in place his demented version of a right-wing Christian theocracy.
Gov. Huckabee returned the glowing praise with his “...wish that there would be like a simultaneous telecast and all American's would be forced, forced at gunpoint no less, to listen to every David Barton message...”.
I don't care if this is a joke. It is such an insane joke that it should disqualify this man for any elective office again ever.
The video embedded above is from Right Wing Watch. There is a longer You Tube clip on in another article from Reader Supported News. This one includes an excerpt from Ms. Chris Rodda's wonderful book, Liars for Jesus, The Religious Right's Alternate Version of American History Vol. 1. David Barton is a primary source of the lies debunked in her book.
