Palin, uhh, clearly was not aware of any of that. She clearly had a cartoonish picture of the event where Revere shot his guns and rang bells and all of the "patriotic Americans" were roused from bed and went to fight the evil British.
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
"First off, Revere’s mission took place at the behest of Dr. Joseph Warren, a Boston leader of the revolutionary cause, for the purpose of warning Samuel Adams and John Hancock – who were staying at the Hancock home – that the British soliders were likely coming to arrest them and that they would do well to get out of the house before they were taken.
Further, while it is absolutely true that the British did have their eye on the gunpowder stockpiles at Concord, Revere’s mission had absolutely zero to do with this. He was all about getting to Adams and Hancock while passing the word along the way of the coming arrival of the British Regulars. Thus, using this bit of history to find some basis in Palin’s remark that, “He who warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms….” is as absurd as the original statement and only serves to further highlight the same."

The right to bear arms didn't exist then... Revere didn't protect our gun rights in any sense... lol
Why is it so hard for some people to admit Palin says some dumb **** sometimes? She doesn't have a chance to be president, so I don't know why they are fighting for her... lol
