Palin Tells Paul Revere History Wrong Yet Again

by Wonkette Jr.

Professor Truth.Grifter queen Sarah Palin took to the Fox News airwaves to defend her “exactly the opposite of what actually happened” version of Paul Revere’s “Midnight Ride” and insisted that she wasn’t wrong on every possible fact of history. He had a horse! No, she did not say that. She admitted to Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace that, yeah, okay, the Revere guy was trying to warn Americans that the British were coming, sure, but that in doing so, Revere was also mysteriously trying to warn the British. He was just cold warning anything in his path. 

From the NYT:

[Palin] went on: “But remember that the British had already been there, many soldiers for seven years in that area. And part of Paul Revere’s ride — and it wasn’t just one ride — he was a courier, he was a messenger. Part of his ride was to warn the British that we’re already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have. He did warn the British.”

This is still completely factually incorrect, but we can see the historical interpretation she is trying to make. Paul Revere was just yelling warnings at anyone who would listen to him as he toured to secret stops around the Northeast on his bus horse, saving America forever. [NYT]

Given that she's an ignorant lying sack of dung who doesn't have the guts to admit she's wrong AND would steamroll anyone who got in her way, I'd say she has the GOP Trifecta. No brain, no heart, no guts.

I love it how Palin turned the British into, basically, an 18th century version of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

It it precisely 0% factual, but will, no doubt, thrill the GOP base.

She's got the nomination in the bag, folks! Ronmey, Pawlenty, Gingrich et. al. might as well just hang it up and go home. Even insane person Ron Paul isn't insane enough to compete with Palin, though no doubt he'll continue to win every straw poll his zombie Randroid army can flock to.

I wish we had a Revere-type warning system in place when Palin was making her way down to the lower 49. Too late now.

This is her cue to all the militias to rise up and proclaim her Queen, just like Paul Revere prophetically intended.

Revere also told the British that life begins at conception and that we didn't need any socialized medicine to take care of our olds and our poors.

did you see the lame conservative apologetics in the LA Times ie "Palin is right and you're all DUMB!" Because Paul Revere was captured and was defiantly captured and telling the "British" army of the "American" preparations and how we were going to kick their asses etc. So that "counts" as Palin warning the British. And it also counts for RepugliKKKans using revisionist history yet again, such as when the happy slaves were working on the plantations of their good friends their owners etc.

Personally, I'm glad nobody asked her about The Civil War! I'd hate to refight that one.

PS: How did the British know it was Paul Revere? Because of the huge copy of his signature than ran down the length of his horse? Must be true – I read it on the Internets.

Which is why Paul Revere was warning the British to take away our guns: Cause Paul, and the horse he rode in on, were dope fiends! (And a walrus also, and part of the British invasion.)

OK, Sarah, one more time: Paul Revere rode through the countryside warning the British about guns even though he didn't have a head and was called the headless horseman because the Islamic bad guys cut it off and he had to carry his head around under his arm which made it hard to ring the bell and tax cuts and the great Ronald Reagan.

I might have more sympathy for Palin getting all this so completely wrong if she hadn't just been to the historic site and had the opportunity to read and learn what actually had happened.

Paul Revere actually shot British soldiers from a helicopter pedaled by Leonardo da Vinci. It was just him and Leonardo and a case of Sam Adams. He couldn't kill a lot since he didn't have a semi-auto musket, so they dropped hundred-page leaflets penned by Thomas Paine and left. Many of the British were severely concussed, that day.

You are absolutely right. It's to a pathological point. But I think it's important to say that fake admissions of being wrong don't count (disguised attacks).

History is "His" + "story" so Skoal is entitled to his story. (The fact that Kenyans bombed Pearl Harbor to soften up Hawaii for Barry's eventual immaculate conception is left out of the books so as not to embarrass someone.) Palin's account of Revere is "Her" + "Story" which makes it apocryphal at best. When Revere shouted to warn the Brits, did he yell "the colonials are comin', the colonials are comin'" or something like that? He had two yells to memorize? I wonder if Paul Revere and the Raiders have any light to shed on this conundrum?

ChessieNefercat June 6, 2011 at 11:28 am

Palin's ancestorettes actually lived in the Boston area. What was yelled that night was "Ye Bristol is coming, ye Bristol is coming!"

Pres[EXTERMINATE!!] June 6, 2011 at 10:44 am

There has been a debate raging on failblog.org (where the original Palinized version of the Midnight Ride was posted) over whether or not what she said was accurate. Some folks went to original accounts of the ride which mentioned bells going off from town to town as Revere went riding as proof that we "liblunatics" were just demonizing St. Sarah at every possible opportunity…. the debate was as much of a fail as her original statement.

ttommyunger June 6, 2011 at 10:46 am

Missouri boys have an expression for the few women in the world like Sarah: we simply describe her as having a clatterbone which is "loose at both ends". Her other problem is what we call "Baptist Preacher Syndrome": she simply has a hard time finding a stopping place. Her final problem is terminal stupidity. Sadly, I've never seen a cure for any of these conditions short of assuming room temperature and I wouldn't wish that on her; she is doing progressives too much good right now, and Republicans too much harm.

PabaBritannica June 6, 2011 at 10:51 am

Yeah, sounds like Baptists in the Carolinas, too. I once sat through a Baptist sermon in Rock Hill, SC that lasted from 10am to dinnertime. At least they had some kickass fried chicken at the end.

Part of his ride was to warn the British that we’re already there.

On account of how could the British have POSSIBLY known that their colonies were, er, populated? With colonists. Who fucking came from fucking England. In fact, if Paul Revere had kept his goddamn mouth shut and his lanterns dark, there would have been no Revolutionary War because the British wouldn't even have known we were here (or as he puts it "there") in the first place.

God, I love this country. And I thank the Ruppert Murdoch Terrorist Broadcast Network for giving this woman a pulpit.

It will be called "Palinism".

Barack Obama flubs a speech and says something about 57 states. Conservicunts point and laugh and screech "OBAMAR DOESN'T KNOW HOW MANY STATES THERE ARE!" Liberals admit that he misspoke, and move on.

Sarah Palin issues a rambling, incoherent, factually incorrect statement about Paul Revere. Liberals point and laugh at how utterly stupid this woman is. Palin, and other conversicunts respond by doubling down on the falsehood, going so far as to edit Wikipedia to attempt to alter history.

This is why we're better than these fucking idiots. Our people say something untruthful, we admit to the error. Their people say something untruthful, and they attempt to redefine truth.

genxr June 6, 2011 at 12:40 pm

And he went on to become a U.S. Senator.

"Americans" back then meant "Native Americans." The people of Boston were definitely British! Their militia was far from voluntary, too. And since Sarah P isn't Congregationalist, she would definitely not have been allowed to live in Massachusetts! Maybe allowed to hang, between a Quaker and a witch.

I'd throw it back, or throw it up onto the pile of rocks so I don't catch it again.

Smack its head against a rock first.

Bait. Though the mind boggles at what you might catch.

With surveyor's marks of course.

Of course. Figuratively. Also too.
