Palin commits an Obamaism and mispeaks on history:
[Paul Revere] who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.
Nope, not especially articulate. And of course it was the colonists Revere warned. And although Obama has also been both inarticulate and historically inaccurate so many times that it would support a small cottage industry, and the MSM continually covers for him while attacking Palin, that doesn’t make her correct.
A few minutes later, they were all startled to hear the heavy crash of an entire volley of musketry from the direction of Lexington’s meeting house and then the Lexington town bell began clanging rapidly! Jonathan Loring, a Lexington resident captured earlier, turned to his captors and shouted “The bell’s a’ ringing! The town’s alarmed, and you’re all dead men!”
What’s more, the colonists were British at that time, and considered themselves to be so (although I don’t claim that’s what Palin was referring to). But there is more historical accuracy in her admittedly disjointed statement than most people are aware of, since most of the facts have been lost to the public in legend, myth, and ignorance.
But hey, it’s so much more fun to trash Palin than to actually try to learn anything, isn’t it?
