Revisionist History: Coming Up on Fox News
Fox News is going to be heavily pimping the “founding fathers were Christian fundamentalists” canard tonight, courtesy of Michelle Malkin, James Dobson (Malkin does her interviews from Dobson’s TV studio), and Sean Hannity:
Why is there suddenly a push to promote this revisionist nonsense? Because the Texas State Board of Education is holding hearings on the state’s social studies curriculum, and Governor Rick Perry has stacked the board with religious fundamentalists dedicated to ruining the minds of Texas schoolchildren.
The Texas Freedom Network has been live-blogging today’s hearings, if you’d like to see the kind of garbage Fox News defends.
UPDATE at 3/10/10 6:57:06 pm:
Malkin may have gotten bumped off the show in favor of yet another discussion about the incredible wonderfulness of tea parties. Meanwhile, the Texas State Board of Education continues their important work of revising the history of the United States to be more like something the founding fathers would have abhorred.
