history is now fixed

Palin Supporters Invade Wikipedia With True Story Of Paul Revere

time travelerSarah Palin and her supporters are doing many idiotic things today, so here we are posting about her again. Upon hearing that their illiterate leader revised American history to tailor Paul Revere’s ride to reflect her NRA-themed wet dream about scaring off British soldiers by hollering and waving guns, Mama Grizzly’s supporters’ first reaction was to immediately try to change the historical record to match this account. So let’s see, where is all actual history stored? Wikipedia! Her supporters flocked to Wikipedia and furiously edited factual inaccuracies into the Paul Revere page, because Palin is never wrong, like the Pope.

Here is the brilliant line that her moron faithful were trying to add:

“Accounts differ regarding the method of alerting the colonists; the generally accepted position is that the warnings were verbal in nature, although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride.[8][9]”

Isn’t an “account” usually when someone has had the opportunity to observe an event firsthand? Is Sarah Palin a time traveler?

Whatever. Wikipedia is a well-known truth-phobic institution. The dingbats over at right-wing vomit puddle Conservapedia were faster in making changes:

There. Thank you for fixing American history, Sarah Palin. [WaPo via Little Green Footballs]

    And so they chopped off her head with a giant beanstalk, and they grifted happily ever after.

    1. Chillwaver

      Sadly enough, the "lamestream" media has the power of writing the future by starting to ignore this twat completely, but they choose to do otherwise.

  2. Weenus299

    Wellllll, here's a little story I have to tell about three bad brothas you know so well.
    It started way back, in historeeee with Ad Roc MCA and me, Mike D.

      1. Fuck Toad

        It is often forgotten in these ignorant days, but the original draft of the Declaration of Independence included the following in the list of the King's offenses:

        "He has seen fit to do it to the Colonists like this, like that, and also with a whiffle ball bat".

    1. mayor_quimby

      $arah : "I'm $ P and I need respect ! The cash and the jewelry is what I expect"
      GOP and John McCain: "Take the Amex and get outta my face, you tarted up trollop!"

  3. Sue4466

    To paraphrase American Jesus/Ronald Reagan, in the hands of Teabaggers, facts are really fucking stupid things.

    1. DahBoner

      In his famous cry, ‘One if by land, two if by sea,’ Paul Revere proved that you don’t have to know how to count higher than two to be a great American…

    1. DahBoner

      And many beliefs are irrrational, limiting and destructive, Charlie.

      No, wait. That makes too much sense.

      Beliefs are magically better than facts!!!!

  4. memzilla

    Say, you know which other political fusspot liked to rewrite history (although he wasn't so griftastic about it)… ?

  5. badseeds

    It's almost like warning the Minutemen was just an afterthought. GG Conservapedia.

  6. Captain_Quark

    I thought it was Jesus who rode through the town ringing his little bells and alarming the people.

  7. SorosBot

    Ms. Krabappel: Well class, the history of our country has been changed again to correspond with Bart's answers on yesterday's test. America was now discovered in 1942 by "Some Guy." And our country isn't called America anymore. It's "Bonerland."

    1. V572 [SSAN]

      Isn't it strange how "The Simpsons" is like our Iliad and Odyssey, the text to which we compare all current events in order to understand them, with the firm belief that others will know exactly who Mrs Krabapple, Bart, Lisa and Homer are, the same way classical scholars knew who Hector, Priam and Penelope were?

      1. tessiee

        The show is now in its twentieth (?? I think) year, so it would almost have to be part of our culture by now, if for no other reason than sheer repetition.

  8. metamarcisf

    But wait. This is from right-wing vomit puddle Conservadepia right now: "Their mission was to warn the colonist, not the British. Bells ringing or not there was no 2nd Amendment for Revere to protest to the British about at the time, since the Constitution had not been written." Are there trolls fucking with American history even now, this afternoon? While we await the final press conference from Anthony Weiner (D) (NY)?

    1. dr_giraud

      There's more than one. Your score went from plus-17 to plus-15 before my very eyes.

  9. ChurchofRealism

    Sarah Palin worked up a number 6 on us.
    A number 6?
    Yes, a number six is when Sarah Palin goes a ridin' into history, a whomping and a whooping, every single fact within an inch of its life.
    Well what about Wikipedia?
    Wikipedia? Well we rape the shit out of that later at the number 6 dance.

  10. Sassomatic

    When we talk about a leader who "changed the course of history," we generally do not mean the history before they were born, idiots.

    1. Andrew Drinker

      I sense there was probably "Kick Out The Jams" by MC5 being played on his car stereo as well.

      1. chicken_thief

        You're showing your age, AD – and your awesome taste in kickass rock & roll!

      2. bflrtsplk

        Plus "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols. It fooled the Brits, but some of the colonists didn't quite catch the irony.

    2. riverside68

      And shooting his for-personal-defense-only Glock with a large capacity magazine.

    3. RavenRant

      I am certain vuvuzelas were involved. Also, didjeridus. And I know my American history.

    1. WriteyWriterton

      She might have read "1984," but she probably thought it was non-fiction. She's trying to make it non-fiction.

    2. bflrtsplk

      It's her first language and she's still learnin', you betcha. Some things take time.

  11. tihond

    This recalls the time JEB Stuart sent Mustard to the Union cavalry just before Yellow Pine because "they'd never Ketchup to his Cavalry."

  12. Chillwaver

    I once edited Rush Limbaugh's Wikipedia entry by adding "Asshole of the Year 2009" to his list of accolades. It remained unchanged for a 3 full days. True Story…

  13. i_AM_ready

    My favorite part of all this was when Piper said to some reporter, "Thanks for ruining our vacation!"

    So the home schooling has taught her one thing: Mom taught her how to nurse a grudge and develop a false sense of victimization.

    But the funny thing is that the Snowbilly Grifter actually told her daughter that this bus tour through the primary states is a family vacation! Amazing. If Piper isn't a total idiot, someday she'll figure out that Ma spent a lifetime using her family to satisfy her deep craving for attention. With any luck we'll get a Mommie Dearest book.

    1. PostApocalypse

      Fingers crossed. C'mon Piper, rebel, and rebel hard! There's still hope for ya, kid!

    2. tessiee

      "So the home schooling has taught her one thing: Mom taught her how to nurse a grudge and develop a false sense of victimization."

      Poper may, indeed, be a whiny little shit with an absolutely grotesque case of narcissism, just like her Mom, but I will say that being used as a publicity prop really *isn't* much of a vacation.

  14. TanzbodenKoenig

    Thats's it folks; we've lost. We fought the good fight but the forces of ignorance and greed and self serving ambition are just too strong. If anyone needs me, I'll be the one under the overpass gettin drunk on mouthwash and hobo beans, crying softly to myself as I watch the former Home Of the Free decay further into a Randian dystopia.

    1. GeneralLerong

      Maybe Canada and Mexico will take the opportunity to invade.

      Canada gets the northern states, Mexico gets the southwest, the southeast is nuked into glass and set adrift into the Gulf.

    1. RavenRant

      And the all-important extended magazines. We'd still be speaking English without the strategic advantage we got from them.

  15. Gopherit

    Thank you Paul Revere, father of the 2nd Amendment, Schwartzenegger of the Revolutionary War, Palin's great great great grandfather, and noted born again Christian.
    We salute you Old Bell Ringer. May the Limeys always quake at the sound of your bell.

    1. riverside68

      If he had slept in the bus he would have been okay. But oh no, he had to sleep outside, and now he is dead.

      Are you listening to me Bristol, Piper, Track, anybody at all?

  16. SayItWithWookies

    Finally, someone dares to tell the truth about Paul Revere that the liberal revisionist historians have been trying to hide for all this time. See, the British were about to enslave the Colonists with universal healthcare, which they knew they couldn't do unless they seized all our weapons first. So Paul Revere, who had Down Syndrome, was in his basement praying for the execution of gays in Uganda, when The LORD came to him and said, "Paul, I have anointed you to fight witchcraft and socialism — now Go and warn the British that if they try to burn our flag or allow our policemen to have collective bargaining that the Montana Militia will be down here lickety-split with two vans full of plastic explosives." And thus the Union was saved, and then the South used States' Rights to end slavery and everyone lived happily ever after.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      You can't see me at the moment, but I am wearing a flagpin and singing the national anthem off-key while tears stream down my face and Jesus hugs me. From behind.

  17. philpjfry

    They do understand that changing it in wikipedia does not actualy change history right?"

    1. baconzgood

      I got banned from Wikipedia for changing shit on there. Only I did it for snark sake. (that was before I found Wonkette where snark isn't frowned upon)

    2. Buckminster

      It changes it as far as people who rely on Wikipedia for their only source. There are going to be some crappy term papers turned in for American History 101 this fall…

    3. Dr_pangloss

      This is the worst piece of revisionist history since Napoleon forced Guns N' Roses to give up on their last abum and make the String Cheese Incident.

  18. genxr

    It's more like claiming the first squirmish of the Civil War was fought at Fort Summer, in New Hampshire.

  19. zappadoo76

    British soldier #1: Do we 'ave a natural right to bear arms, too?
    British Soldier #2: Actually, it's an obligation, to 'is Majesty.
    British Soldier #1: So I can't put me musket down, then, innit?
    British Soldier #2: 'At's right, mate.
    British Soldier #1: Blimey, the damn thing is 'eavy.

    1. RavenRant

      You left out, "Bob's your uncle!" And "Bollocks!"

      And, technically, shouldn't the last line read, "Blimey, the bleedin' fing is heavy?"

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      British soldier #2: An woy in bloody 'ell did we 'ave to carry 'em all the way up here to Concord NH?

  20. DaRooster

    "…although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride."

    Definitely DISPUTED… God… please, I know I don't pray very often, but if you are going to take them… could ya soon.

    p.s.- They are ruining this place… and wasting what little precious oxygen we have left.

  21. BornInATrailer

    A little known fact; Paul Revere alerted people on his famous ride by blowing on a vuvuzela.

    The More You Know

    1. WriteyWriterton

      He was actually delivering a root vegetable that night, shouting "The Radish is coming!"

    2. user-of-owls

      …and that is why the First Lady is traveling to South Africa. To pay respect to Paul Revere.

    3. [redacted]hse

      I think she'd be a lot happier if he would just lick that vuvuzela and not blow on it.

    4. Geminisunmars

      I have a hard time telling the difference between a vuvuzela and Palin's voice.

  22. Cat_Damon

    On the bright side, it will be that much easier to spot the idiots who plagiarize/use Wikipedia as their primary source for academic papers.

  23. BarackMyWorld

    Sarah Palin could say tomorrow that the world is flat and there'd probably still be "experts" defending her.

    1. Buckminster

      Yeah, and she could say the sky is falling and her idiot followers would believe that too!

    2. Peace in our time

      She's probably considering a 16-dimension universe in which space is curved and what appears curved is actually flat and vice versa, depending upon ones perspective.

      You know, that deep-thinker stuff for which she is fey-moose.

    3. GOPCrusher

      Well, it's flat where she happened to be standing when she said it, so technically she was correct.

    4. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Yeah, but does Wikipedia have an entry for "round earth controversy" that they can revise?

  24. weejee

    Let's see where has this happened before? There were the Tudor's doing a number on Richard II, Nazis on a lot, and the Soviets (N. Koreans) on almost everything. Oh, and the Tejas Skoolbook Suppository on absolutely everything.

    1. baconzgood

      "How do I know if I'm a Homosexual?"

      Do you like to fuck people of the same sex? Then you are.

      1. WriteyWriterton

        Are you a Republican Congressman who claims to be straight?

        Then, yes, you're gay.

    2. UW8316154

      Great, now I'm going to have to check that out. I wonder if there is a questionnaire, what questions would it ask to help me answer the question?

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        The important thing is that they'll point you to places where you can get "cured". (I think Bachmann's hubby runs one of these rackets.)

  25. whiterabid

    I remember when I was young and used to watch cartoons after school, there was a cartoon about Paul Revere. It showed him riding his horse and yelling, "the British are Coming." Then it segued into an action sequence where the colonists rise up in arms against the British, and yes, the bells began to ring.

    I think Sarah must have seen the same cartoon.

    1. DashboardBuddha

      I was thinking the same thing. I think they showed us that film when I was in the 6th grade.

  26. Mahousu

    I love that the Conservapedia article includes links to homework. The students' answers provide some great insights, like:
    The Baroque style was a mix between new paintings, new music, new poetry, and plays. The motivation was to just get some new stuff out there. (Benjamin)
    Picture it like this; imperialism is like a car going very fast: if there is a criminal in that car, well then it’s just his get-away car…but if there’s a police officer in that car, he can have a positive effect. (Jonathan R.)

    1. baconzgood

      That second part writen by Jonathan R…….What the fuck is that all about? Man that kid either needs to get off the drugs or get on them.

      1. AJWjr.

        I know, right? He forgot to take into account miscreants such as myself, who just like to drive fast.

      2. Crank_Tango

        are you kidding? that is the modern conservative philosophy boiled down in a form we can all understand. When a fascist is in power, government is good. When a brother is in power, socializms.

        just substitute government for imperialism,

    2. zhubajie

      Con'pedia is supposed to be for Home-schoolers, whose kins will probably end up turning into ex-fundy poon-hounds on their first evening of liberty, but will still be more ignorant than the average pig!

    1. RadioJr.

      it would be so funny if Weiner came out in a Speedo.
      That would end this whole sordid affair.

  27. WriteyWriterton

    Soon enough, her supporters will edit her Wiki entry to show that she did not quit any of her last three public jobs. She is, in fact, still Governor and Mayor and Chairman of the Oil and Gas Commission.

  28. pinkocommi

    The next thing you know, Palin's supporters will try to get people to believe that the earth is only 6,000 years old, evolution is a myth, and there's no such thing as man-made global warming. Oh, wait….

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Haha, that is so far-fetched that only a complete retard would believe such nonsense!

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      If the Republitards can insist that voters need photo IDs, why can't we insist that they pass an IQ test as well? Seriously — which requirement is more likely to improve the whole system?

  29. baconzgood

    "Weeelllll here's a lil' story I got to tell
    about a snow billy grifter we know so well
    it started way back in history…"

    1. elviouslyqueer

      The Ku Klux Klan was a fraternal organization that tried to introduce African-Americans to nature, particularly trees.


  30. FNMA

    Dunning-Kruger Effect, aka Palin Syndrome, aka Gingrich Disorder, aka Santorum Palsy, aka Bachmann Disorder, and so on…

  31. bordo2

    I was disappointed that $arah Palin also didn't note that Paul Revere wasn't really on a horse, but in a Boss 302 Mustang with 22-inch rims and a 7,000-watt sound system playing "London Bridge is falling down." It scared the shit out of the Brits. Honest. There are "accounts" of this.

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        But since the account is from a major US politician, Wikipedia is obliged to take note of it as an "documented" fact.

        (I wish that was snark, but the SaraTards are actually making that argument on the Wikipedia discussion page.)

  32. riverside68

    "making themselves look even more ridiculous than usual in the process"

    Is that even possible? In for a penny, in for a pound: I say they should knock themselves out trying to rewrite history, that should keep them busy trying to keep up with bible spice.

    1. SorosBot

      "Why does the page for the Declaration of Independence say that a time-traveling Ronald Reagan was among the signers?"

      1. horsedreamer_1

        Ronald Reagan was an actor, so clearly, had access to the Delorean on the Back to the Future set.

  33. PabaBritannica

    To paraphrase Ezra Klein, we must get to focusing on what's really important here: Andrew Breitbart.

  34. WriteyWriterton

    According to the NY Times right now, the "Weiner press conference" is actually a Breitbart press conference.

    So, yes, it is a Weiner press conference, but just the really tiny, self-consciously inadequate kind.

  35. OneYieldRegular

    So we're up against homunculi who somehow think that revising Wikipedia and downfisting comments on Wonkette are politically efficacious acts? My god – how will we ever defeat such daunting courage, daring strategy and dazzling intelligence?

    1. fuflans

      member when we used to warblog?

      whatever happened to that? did it go away with newell?

      1. UW8316154

        Seems so long ago, when the cry of "WARBLOG!!" was enough to let slip the blogs of war.

    1. easybaked

      And on The Third Day, He went shopping for new duds at Walmart, because someone had stolen His only clean shroud.

  36. VinnyThePooh

    A plausible rant makes you a guaranteed winner at Trivial Pursuit in the House Of Palin. If it doesn't, throwing the board against the wall certainly will.

  37. jus_wonderin

    Isn't Paul Revere's signature line "The British are coming!" I can see where a fundie might have reservations with the language. Especially if PR was ringing his bells.

  38. prommie

    "To warn the British that the Colonists would exercise their natural right to bear arms." How beautiful is that? Sarah actually took it further, she managed to throw in the words "private" and "individual" when she suggested that Paul Revere was the founder of the NRA. But why were all the arms in the armory, instead of being privately and individually borne by those bell-ringin' shorer-uppers of our arms rights over there? Were they community-owned arms, were they socialist commie arms? I am so confused.

  39. genxr

    And if it's a double-super-secret-PAC, they can do a bit of shopping at Bloomingdales.

  40. prommie

    By the way, watch for this meme: history as you think you know it, as recorded in the elitist history books, and taught in the socialist public schools and commie elitist so called "universities," has been slanted and twisted by the left-wing bias of the people who wrote the books. Its well known, after all, that the intelligent, the knowledgeable, and the literate, are all left wingers with extreme socialist left wing bias. So, these revisions of history are actually necessary to correct the errors and lies which have accumulated from 200 years of biased "history."

  41. powersuit

    It's the little known subclause to the Second Amendment, Amendment 2(a), in which Charleton Heston established "clawback" provisions that places automatic weapons into the hands of every colonist, along with an NRA sticker on their horses' rumps, so that they could preemptorily protect the Second Amendment from the Redcoats!

  42. Eve8Apples

    Between Tundra Twit's revisionist history and Weiner's weiner — the writers for Stewart and Colbert are going to have one hell of a week!

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Yeah … I think el Fistula is working pretty much at the high end of his intellectual capabilities here.

  43. Negropolis

    WTF?! Anthony Weiner calls a tearful press conference to answer every question ever asked of him. I'm through with this guy, not because he consenually exchanged sexy-texts with other women outside his marriage – though, that is a scumball thing to do – but because he just fucking apologized to Andy Breitbart. Apart from simply telling the truth the first time, the next thing you do is but out a brief statement and MOVE ON.

    OMG, now he's saying that he doesn't know if all the girls were adults. Anthony, you're a fucking moron, stop. fucking. talking, you ass. I truly question this guys judgement. Unless this is some absloutely bizarre publicity stunt, this was fucking stupid.

    Can you tell how angry I am?

    1. ProgressiveInga

      "I did not have twitter relations with that girl, uh woman, uh….."

      As a gay girl, all I have to say is Weiners are gross!

  44. luke_warm

    The updated version of the Nixon quote, as per the wikipedia revisionists: “When Sarah Palin says it, that means it’s not a mistake.”

  45. Negropolis

    No fucking kidding. Just know some stupid bitch in the press gallery shouts out: "One of these girls is young enough to be your daughter."


    Now, the stupid ass "reporter" that often appears on Jimmy Kimmel is yelling whether he'll support Arnold's love child, and whether he was fully erect in the pictures.

    I think I get it, now. Anthony loves being humiliated in public or he loves to hear his voice, in which case I think he may be a sociopath.

  46. GortRay

    Proposed Wikipedia revision: "Sarah Palin, nee Heath, is a natural born idiot and psychopath whose career as a grifter has brought her great fame and fortune. She has the approximate intellect of a bag of dog turds. She also has millions of rabid followers who, in a sane society, would be rounded up and kept in barbed wire pens."

  47. prommie

    You know,when you think about it, they have completely revised the New Testament and twisted the teachings of Jesus by 180 degrees (apparently his central message was "kill them all, I'll sort them out," and "every man for himself."). but seriously, after that, doing the same number on US history is nothing.

  48. AJWjr.

    That was actually either the Last Supper or the First Thanksgiving. I've heard it both ways.

  49. AlaskaGrrl

    Ah yes. This worked so well for the Soviets. And now with all "truth" on line, we won't be getting that missive from the authorities to "tear out page # whatever and replace it with this one." in our Official Republican Encyclopedia.

  50. Pragmatist2

    I am very confused. A very smart Palinista would know to go to Wikipedia to get incorrect information. Most of them couldn't get that far. So where did they get false information to add to Wikipedia? Is there an alternative universe version of Wiki for stupid right wing nuts?

  51. poncho_pilot

    i'm imagining everyone on Earth being turned into Palin. the squawking! my god, the squawking!

  52. derrickfinnerty

    So, here's the original write-up on conservapedia:
    "Paul Revere (1734-1818) was a silversmith in colonial America who was very active in Boston-area revolutionary groups such as the Sons of Liberty. He is famous for riding from Boston to Lexington, Massachusetts with William Dawes on the night of April 18, 1775 to warn the minutemen that British troops led by General Thomas Gage were invading. Revere was captured before he could reach Concord, but managed to escape. His midnight ride was immortalized by a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow." http://web.archive.org/web/20090107131452/http://

    1. HistoriCat

      Can we have a Dr. Who/Twilight Zone crossover?

      The Doctor takes Sarah Palin back to the American Revolution. She's captured by brave colonial minutemen who assume she must be a Hessian since they can't understand a thing she says.

  53. DahBoner

    "Revere rang bells during his ride."

    Oh, good golly! That's nuthin'!

    Paul Revere and the Raider's gong solo blew my wig off, man.

    1. tessiee

      That cunt.

    She doesn't feel pity or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop, ever.

  55. orygoon

    "Isn’t an “account” usually when someone has had the opportunity to observe an event firsthand?"

    That's exactly right. If it isn't in Longfellow, it didn't happen.

  56. franco_pinyon

    You can almost see the weak, fuzzy mind at work.__"They talk about the bell tower of the Old north Church so, obviously, somebody was ringin' thise bells. The hero was Paul Revere, so he MUST have been the one ringin' those bells. And, um, there was a horse there, too. Up in the bell tower. What a horse!"

  57. chascates

    From ConservaPUDia:
    He is famous for riding from Boston to Lexington, Massachusetts with William Dawes on the night of April 18, 1775 ringing bells to warn the British that colonists would exercise their natural rights to both bear arms and use them in an effort secede from the United Kingdom in response to Big Government bullying and interfering with Colony's Rights[1]. Coincidentally, this also served to warn the minutemen the British were coming[Citation Needed].

    Ringing bells is a widely-accepted warning that colonists would exercise their 'natural rights to bear arms'? Thank goodness it also 'coincidentally' warned the Minuteman. Otherwise . . .

  58. Biel_ze_Bubba

    Well, it's that darned "gotcha history", doncha know? It's just chock full of liberal facts, waitin' to trip her up. Good thing her brain-dead zombie army is out there fixing history in the Wikipedia.

  59. comrad_darkness

    Ah, defending the idea that Palin can never be wrong.

    Oh, Saint Sarah Holy Virgin Mother of God, forgive us for every doubting you!

  60. SonofSpermcube

    Incidents like this are why I like the term "Little Sister" for the crowd-sourced version of Big Brother. Shame it never really caught on.

    Private roads? Not quite. They were sold to Imperial Spain & administered by French Canadian fur-trappers who had migrated south with the slowing of the trade in pelts.

    Haven't these Palin Haters have anything better to do with their time. Their attitudes indicate they must all be descended from the type of people who were members of lynch mobs, the KKK and witch burners ( yes I know the witches in New Engand were hanged not burned. That was an historical fallacy perpetuated by American school books for centuries Witchs were burned in Europe because they considered to be heretic. Under English common law they were hanged as felons.. God save us from whoever these idiots vote for if they're not too busy pouring their puerile venom out on someone else to take time to vole..

    I notice that in the last few days my comments have declined by your editorial board. Probably because they could be considered right wing and contained no obscenities. Yahoo is definely a left wing organ. Unfortunately we are stuck with them like Germany was stuck with Joseph Goebbels. If you are so clever and well informed, look him up under the hstory of Germany during the 1930s and 40;s. Or lookup Senator Joe McCarthy in the 1950's.

    Poor Wonkette,

    Seems that Paul Revere's own writing disagrees with your version of the events. Perhaps y'all should ask for your money back since your vaunted institutions of learning failed to teach you factual history.
