Glenn Beck and David Barton have long been BFFs and Beck routinely repeats Barton’s lies on his show. He never presents any evidence for them, of course, because there is no evidence. But you know what they say about the big lie — repeat it often enough and it becomes true, especially if your audience is ignorant and doesn’t care what is or isn’t true. Here’s the latest:
On Friday’s installment, Beck explained that he has been contemplating launching “Torah Tuesday” programs in which his audience and he would learn more about the Hebrew Bible because “the answer for everything we are looking for comes from God.”
“I want to know the New Testament, I want to know the Old Testament,” Beck said, “and I want to know another Testament, the one my faith has.”
Learning more about the Book of Deuteronomy, he said, is especially important because “thirty percent of all of our federal documents, thirty percent [are] based in Deuteronomy.”
“The Founders knew how important Deuteronomy was,” Beck said.
