“He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.”
For those who wonder what was wrong with this idiotic statement, I first ask if your school taught history, and then wonder did you go to school. Paul Revere’s historic ride occurred in 1775, the constitutional convention did not even convene until 1787. And "ringing those bells" and "warning shots"...really? Where the hell did she get that? Nevermind, it's Palinese, who knows. On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren and instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. Revere wasn’t ringing bells or firing shots into the air. He had to quietly deliver the message that the regulars were coming to arrest them. And he had the assistance of nearly 40 riders spreading the message of the movement of the British army, and preparing the patriots to fight.
The Real Story of Revere's Ride
As stupid as I think this woman is, and I really think she's stupid with a capital "S', what scares me even more are her followers. The dumber she is, the more they love her! Also, is it just me...and I doubt it is, her voice is in Edith Bunker territory to start with, but when she starts using voice influctions, don't you just want to stick screwdrivers through your ears? Seriously, when snowbilly grifter was talking about Paul Revere, all the dogs within 15 miles had their paws over their ears.
And a sidenote to Michele Bachmann who also spent some time in Concord, New Hampshire recently and proclaimed, "This is where the shots heard 'round the world were fired." Not so much. One of the reasons Paul Revere is famous today is also because of the battles of Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. He played an important role as he helped to organize an intelligence and alarm system that was designed to keep watch over the British forces and warn Americans of threats so that they could be prepared.
