Notorious Pseudo-Historian David Barton Helps RNC Promote Its Campaign To Mobilize Religious Right Voters
Back in June, the Republican National Committee launched an effort to mobilize Religious Right voters heading into the midterm elections called GOPFaith.com, the goal of which is to mobilize tens of thousands of Religious Right activists on behalf of GOP candidates.
The RNC put South Carolina GOP chairman Chad Connelly in charge of the project and Connelly has been making the rounds of Religious Right radio programs to promote it and now radical right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton, who has a long history of working directly for the Republican Party, has filmed a video promoting the effort as well.
In the video, Barton asserted that the Founding Fathers all believed that religion ought to be central to America's public policy and cited various instances in which these early leaders called the nation to prayer before laughably declaring that, until now, evangelical voters had been "ignored by both parties."
"The good news now," Barton then announced, "is the Republican National Committee is no longer ignoring evangelicals or people of faith," pointing to the new GOPFaith.com effort as proof that the RNC is "now reaching out and saying 'hey, we're very comfortable with faith people, we want them involved, you have been involved, you've been the basis of America from the beginning.'" This GOP outreach effort, Barton insisted, now "gives us an even stronger reason to get involved in our churches to move people forward to support, as George Washington said, our foundations of religion and morality."
"If you want to see what can be done to help increase voter turnout in the faith community to get the right standards back in America," Barton said, concluding his pitch, "you can go to GOPFaith.com":
