Glenn Beck Insists That David Barton Is 'An Amazing Uniter'

It came as no surprise that following Bob Barr's recent attack on David Barton during a Republican primary debate, Glenn Beck spent several segments on his radio program today defending Barton, even bringing Barton onto the show so that he could blame the attacks on "a bunch of George Soros-funded bloggers and groups."

Before Barton called into the program, Beck likened the attacks on him to Malcolm X's attacks on Martin Luther King, insisting that Barton "is an amazing man, an amazing uniter ... David is an amazing, decent, honorable, loving, non-bigoted man."

"I've met bigots before in my life," Beck said, "David Barton is the farthest thing from it":

Indeed, where would anyone ever get the idea that David Barton is some sort of bigot?
