David Barton: ‘Hate Is a Virtue’

It appears that David Barton is continuing his trek through the gutters of hate into 2013. On his New Year’s Day radio program, the Texas right-winger compared liberals to Nazis and preached that “intolerance” and “hatred” of both are good things. From our friends at Right Wing Watch:

“So we’ve got to get to the point where tolerance is seen as a sin because we’re tolerating a lot stuff that destroys our families, that destroys our own character and we can’t tolerate that stuff.  We have to get back to the point where hate is a virtue, at least certain kinds of hate.  The fear of the Lord is to hate evil and we need to have a hatred of things and get off this fence of having no passion about anything.  You know, ‘I tolerate anything, I’m not going to have a passion good or bad, I’m not going to hate anything’ … We just can’t do that and we’ve got to get back to that same type of intolerance, that we’re going to be intolerant of liberalism.”
