Rick Green works for David Barton's organization, Wallbuilders, and is his co-host on Barton's radio show, Wallbuilders Live. He also really wants his boss to be a U.S. Senator. On Facebook today, Green wrote: There is a lot of talk out there about people wanting David Barton to run for the U.S. Senate. Let's find out how true that is. If you want to see it happen, then take 2 seconds to like the page below, or 30 seconds to leave a post about why you think he'd be a good U.S. Senator alongside … [Read more...]
You read that right. Scott Lively, author of The Pink Swastika, was on David Barton's radio show today complaining about me. If you want to listen, go to the August 21 show and click on the link. Barton, Green and Lively would love to make the controversy over The Jefferson Lies about me. Lively's presence on the show can only serve as an attempt to change the subject from Barton's work to something, anything else. Green and Lively doubled down on the accusation that Christian scholars are … [Read more...]
Rick Green, David Barton's right hand man at Wallbuilders, uses some creative and colorful language to address those who have examined David Barton's claims about Thomas Jefferson. Question: What do elitist professors have in common with Adolf Hitler & Saul Alinsky? Answer: They masterfully use the powerful art of innuendo to falsely defame those with which they disagree. Definition of Innuendo: A derogatory hint or reference to a person or thing. The internet is abuzz today … [Read more...]
The American College of Pediatricians versus the American Academy of Pediatrics: Who leads and who follows?
Just for fun, let's compare the American College of Pediatricians with the American Academy of Pediatrics. In August, David Barton and Rick Green at Wallbuilders said the ACP is the leading association of pediatricians in the nation. Even after their error was pointed out by the AAP and a reader of this blog, Rick Green said yesterday on air that the AAP "has more members and has been around a little longer" but both Barton and Green stuck by the story that the ACP was the leading … [Read more...]
Yesterday, I posted a note from Wallbuilder's Caroline Henry to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The note addressed a previous Wallbuilder's show during which David Barton claimed that the leading association of pediatricians in America warned schools to stop indoctrinating students into homosexuality. See the original post for details; in short the real leading association (the American Academy of Pediatrics) did not issue any such warning. The American College of Pediatricians a small group … [Read more...]
Remember when David Barton and Rick Green told their audience that the leading pediatricians association in the nation urged school staff to stop indoctrinating kids into homosexuality? The initial response from Rick Green to a listener was to claim that there was nothing wrong in what they said on the broadcast when they referred to the American College of Pediatricians as the leading group. Of course, the real leading group, the American Academy of Pediatrics, denied giving any such … [Read more...]
Early last week, I pointed out that David Barton and Rick Green identified the American College of Pediatricians as "the leading pediatric association in America." In fact, ACP is a group of around 200 members which, in 2003, split off from the real leading group, the American Academy of Pediatrics. The AAP commented briefly later in the week. I also mentioned that a reader, Bernie, wrote to Wallbuilders to ask why Barton and Green identified the ACP as the leading group. Rick Green … [Read more...]
