As we have noted many times before, the simple fact that a claim happens to be demonstrably false has never stopped David Barton from repeating that claim endlessly. That tradition remains intact as today, on his “WallBuilders Live” radio program, Barton once again asserted that the Department of Justice under President Obama has entirely refused to prosecute those who traffic in child pornography.
Barton made this same claim back in 2011 and we pointed out then that he was lying, but that didn’t stop him from making the false claim once again today, asserting that, until recently, nobody in America supported pedophilia but now it is gaining support because the Obama administration is turning a blind eye to the issue of child pornography by refusing to prosecute anyone for it.
“The Obama administration has refused to prosecute any child pornography,” Barton lied, “which is, again, sex between children and adults … They have refused to prosecute any of it”:
We would just like to point out that, in the last week alone, the FBI has issued no less than six different press releases announcing indictments of or sentences for people involved in trafficking of child pornography.
How exactly these sentences are being handed down if, as Barton claims, the Department of Justice “has refused to prosecute any child pornography” is beyond us.
But, once again, the mere fact that Barton is demonstrably wrong about this claim will not, of course, stop him from repeating it time and time again.
