Barton’s Hypocrisy Goes Meta

David Barton joined Glenn Beck on James Robison’s TV show and went all meta on his own hypocrisy, not only falsely claiming that we all are trying to set up a “secular theocracy” but that it’s his opponents who accuse him of doing what they are guilty of. It’s kind of like a triple negative.

Of course, all he really means by “secular theocracy” is not being allowed to impose his religious views on everyone else.

    Sigh.

    I would be willing to accept that an “atheist theocracy” of sorts is possible… Those aren’t the words I would choose, but it is fairly clear what would be meant by that, and it’s not entirely a word salad. But a “secular theocracy” is an oxybarton. It would be like a “green-ish crimson” or an “honest David Barton”. The words themselves are fundamentally contradictory.

    “secular theocracy”

    Have you been using words you don’t understand again David?

    Reverberating psychological projection increasing in volume due to the amplifying feedback of Barton feeding in multiple types of projections? Will the conservative Christian community celebrate and enrich him even more?

    I’m starting to wonder if Barton might shatter himself if he hits the right resonance frequency.

    A see a new verb being created: Bartoning. As in, “He’s bartoning history again.” or, “Ignore him, he’s bartoning.” It really is more than just lying about something. It’s lying with intent to maliciously deceive or co-opt.

    Lying to cover your ass as in, “I was only doing 59 mph officer” is not bartoning. Lying to protect someone’s feelings, “Those jeans look great dear” is not bartoning. Lying to impress your religious delusions on others, “The founding fathers never intended women or blacks or gays to vote according to secret letters they wrote” is perfect bartoning.

    He probably will, Bronze Dog, but not in the way you think.

    Let us assume there is a frequency which, when applied to a medium, resonates and pours energy into said medium. Normally we think of vibrations, but lets create a social analog, along the lines of mob mentality. When you are talking to a friend about a movie that you both hate, or like, you talk more about it because you share opinions, nya? Well, it stands to reason that the same could be said if two fundamentalists were talking to each other, or perhaps a feedback loop in which one fundamentalist was only listening to himself. Incidentally, this could be right-wing, left-wing, whatever. However, just like the electromagnetic spectrum, we can isolate certain wavelengths and classify them.

    I therefore dub all conservative-hypocritical-evangelical social frequencies to be the Barton Resonance Frequencies. When the BRFs are applied to any conservative, hypocritical, and/or evangelical individual or group, they gain energy and further isolate themselves to said frequencies.

    And like glass will shatter when subjected to the proper frequency, so too will the fine crystalline social-interpretation structure of a group or individual shatter. Normally we call individuals who have been subjected to this “batshit insane”.

    So that’s the theory, now lets try to apply it: someone ghost-write a bunch of really amazing Poes and send them to Barton once per day, of increasing intensity (Poeness?). The rest of you, grab some jammie dodgers and enjoy the show.

    I’ll take a “secular theocracy” over a Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc. theocracy any day.

  8. thalwen says

    Holding out for “Muslim secular theocracy” myself.

    What about a “Communist, Socialist, Nazi, Muslim, Secular Obamacracy”? It will happen unless we immediately impose right-wing Christianity on the country, just like our founding fathers at Jamestown intended!

    Its good to see that, like Tupac, Mr.Rogers is still making appearances via hologram. It is a bit frustrating to see what a zealot he has become since he died though.

  10. zmidponk says

    You know, at some point, there has to be a stage where what he says reaches some kind of critical mass and has some kind of nuclear explosion, except it’s pure, unadulterated bullshit that fissions, not uranium or plutonium.

    matty1 #2: Have you been using words you don’t understand again David?

    He didn’t mean it verbatim.

  12. d cwilson says

    One day, maybe after getting a few drinks in him, I’d love to ask Barton one simple question: If you’re so sure you have the “truth” on your side, why do you have to lie all the time?

  13. cjtotalbro says

    I would ask him how he gets around that whole commandment that tells people not to lie.

  14. Crudely Wrott says

    I’d ask him what gives him any notion that anyone would listen to him and be motivated by what he has to say.

    OK, wait . . . I withdraw my question.

    Don’t you mean BaRFs?
