Barber Not Just Deranged, But Wrong Too
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've already noted the Obama derangement in Matt Barber's April 15 WorldNetDaily column. But he's also guilty of getting things wrong and taking people out of context.

Barber drops a reference to "John 'forced abortion' Holdren," linking to a previous column in which he claimed Holdren "advocated both forced abortion and compulsory sterilization." In fact, Holdren has never "advocated" those things; rather, he co-wrote a textbook noting such things had been discussed. Even PolitiFact calls this claim a "pants on fire" lie.

Barber also takes Obama's statement that "Whether we like it or not, we (the United States) remain a dominant military superpower" out of context to bash Obama as someone who "betrays his fixed membership among the camp of self-loathing 'or nots.'" In fact, Obama's statement in context referred to the costs to the U.S. of getting "pulled into" international conflicts.

Barber has already demonstrated himself to be a remarkably dishonest man, but now he's not limiting the dishonestly to his usual gay-bashing.
