TPM goes to class:
Me And Glenn Down By The Schoolyard: TPM Enrolls At Glenn Beck's 'University' | TPM LiveWire
Barton elaborated. He began by talking about Alexis de Tocqueville's concept of "American Exceptionalism," noting that "there's gotta be a reason we're different" from other democracies. That's where the "Black-Robed Regiment" comes in. These, according to Barton, were the preachers who influenced the bulk of the Declaration of Independence:The Declaration of Independence is nothing more than a listing of all of the sermons that folks had been hearing in church in the decades leading up to the American Revolution.
ROFLMNAO... Are you appealing to the authority of "Journalists"? 'Cause it sure looks like ya are...
If so, would ya like me to educate you on the fatal flaw in such reasoning? But I warn you... the facts associated with such will remain immutable, despite my not being an educator...
But setting that truth aside; I am going to have to overtly challenge you to post the evidence of Beck being proven to have fabricated information and passed it along as truth.
You should understand that your failure to do so will constitute your conceding to me, that your assertion is a fabrication, passed along as fact; ironically deomonstrating YOU to be precisely the fraud you've come to lament; and where you post evidence and it is found to be deceit... you'll enjoy a smidge of separation from that humiliation, but not sufficient to find much comfort I'm afraid.
Which sort of places you between the devil and the deep blue Publius... now doesn't it?
ROFLMNAO... Sweet Mother... Why not just quote a DU thread?
The coolest part of your post however is that neither you nor the resin caked minds of TPM could even bother to offer a contest of the Lecture's content.
So I challenge ya... straight up Scooter. What about the lecture was inaccurate or 'factually challenged', if you prefer?
Naturally, failure to prove the falsity in the lecture will constitute your concession to me, that despite your desperate desire to claim Beck's position and his guest lecturer is wrong... you've no means to prove otherwise...
Which is at the end of the day, just really nasty stuff in terms of veracity, integrity and all that sort of simplistic, antiquated agrarian ethos...

I mean, do you just not have google even? You could find 100 more in like 10 seconds...
The US Constitution was based upon the principles set forth in the US Constitution... principles which are founded in Christianity... which stems from Judaism...
Are you actually trying to contest this?
Before ya answer... You MAY want to spend some time considering The Grand Charter of Liberty... which preceded the US Constitution by a few years and was in large measure resting in the same principled understanding.
I'm afraid I've some very bad news for ya here... Contrary to that of which you've been misinformed... America is defined by her keystone, immutable Christian founding principles. Those who recognize, respect and defend the unapologetic observance and practice of those principles are "Americans." Those who believe in the antithetis of those principles and otherwise contest and oppose those principles are Anti-Americans... and this without regard for citizenship or to geographic proximity.
Oh so you want me to accept your urls as actual valid examples which validate your assertion...
Sorry, that's not how it works...
What you need to do, is to actually dig through your own disinformation, find your best shot, cull the information, quote it, build an intellectually sound, logically valid argument around your evidence, citing your source.
Now be sure to get right back to me when you've managed to work up something resembling that minimal requirement.
Otherwise, at some point I'll just recognize that you've conceded the point and opted not to formalize it...
Now this in stark contrast to the long since defunk Disp-Air America... MSNBC, CNN, the NY Times, Washington Post, sNews Week and other such impotent Leftist organs.
