Sarah Palin: Paul Revere

Sarah Palin: Paul Revere

 

There has been quite a stir going on about Sarah Palin but what is new really? What is the latest hubbub that is flying around this former Alaska governor? Many people believe that she attempted to totally rewrite history by saying that Paul Revere was going to warn the British as well as his countrymen.

sarah palin paul revereThere is some grain of truth in what Sarah Palin said but still, as the history book say, Paul Revere was really going to warn about the British coming. Where Palin gets her facts about warning the British comes from the time where he was captured and questioned and he said to the capturers that their advancing army would not be successful.

“He asked me if I was an express,” Revere wrote. “I answered in the affirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and added, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River, and that there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up.”

This above information is according to Politifact.com which is a Pulitzer Prize winning fact-finding project of The St. Petersburg Times.

There was a Wikipedia war going on as well since Sarah Palin fans went to the page to change the information on Paul Revere and others were attempting to change it back. The page had to be shut down because of this problem.

    I don’t get it why. Why is that merely some “grain of truth” as opposed to an entirely historically accurate, though not nearly as well known, part of the night’s events, that just so happened to tie into the theme she was trying to convey?

    She wasn’t asked to recite everything that happened that night. And, can you imagine the reaction if she merely said that Revere warned the colonist that the British were coming — something every first grader knows.

  2. JayM says:

    Because, kderosa, in among the “grain of truth”, she also made the wholly inaccurate statement that Revere warned the British “by ringing those bells and making sure, as he is riding his horse through town, to send those warning shots and bells,…”. None of which he did. No shots. No bells.

    And no way anyone can clean this up to make her appear like she knew what she was talking about.
