As part of an effort aimed at honoring the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has produced a project featuring famous Americans reciting the speech. The version of the speech read by President Obama for the project did not include the phrase” under God” which, of course, has thrown the Right into a frenzy, despite the fact that Obama was asked to read the very first draft of the speech which did not include that phrase.
Glenn Beck was among those freaking out about it, screaming that it was all intentional on the part of Obama because “the man has an issue with God” and “he is changing our history, he is changing our traditions”:
Ironically, earlier in the program, Beck went on and on about the importance of always telling the truth and correcting the record when one makes a mistake so as not to spread false information.
We won’t be holding our breath expecting him to actually follow through on that principle.
