Thread Name: BS: what about Glen Beck?
Subject: RE: BS: what about Glen Beck?
Actually, John, in the example you cite regarding the Seven Years' War, Major Geo. Washington led Virginia Militia (British Provincial troops) to be correct- and in pretty much a single battle at Fort Necessity; overall commander of the British force being General Braddock.

Using the word Americans is a shorthand,...

Yes it is- and its still incorrect.

and it gives one the feeling for where and who they were

and that "feeling" is misleading and largely incorrect.

REAL history is about fact, John, not "feelings" and wishful thinking.

As for other criticisms you might have made of Beck's arguments[/I> I would not waste my time debating a Holocaust denier & Beck's idiocies place him in the same category.
