You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Glenn Beck is planning to build a $2 billion Libertarian residential community in Texas called Independence Park.  It will produce its own food and energy and do TV and film production.

Also, fake historian David Barton will create a “national archive” where children can be “deprogrammed.”

I think we know how this ends — a long line of folks waiting for their cup of Kool-Aid.

Can you imagine what it’s like to be inside Glenn Beck’s head?

 

 

Thomas Jefferson Can Stop Rolling

Evangelical minister and conservative/Tea Party activist David Barton is also a pseudo-historian who writes awful books that make real historians laugh hysterically and cry helplessly.  Glenn Beck is a huge fan of his, which probably tells you all you need to know about the degree of truth in Barton’s ouevre.

Anyway, Barton’s latest piece of crap, The Jefferson Lies, is so full of Barton Lies that his publisher, Thomas Nelson, has recalled the thing.

A small victory for truth and justice today.
