    No matter what historians say you continue to show your hate for Palin. I know what that shows me about who is stupid

    How about NPR? How many historians will it take for you to realize she was right

    Did you read it?
    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he's not firing warning shots. He is telling people so that they can ring bells to alert others.
    Prof. ALLISON: ...But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.
    Besides the fact that this guy thinks the listeners are idiots by letting us know that Paul Revere didn't have Twitter (thanks for that amazing bit of knowledge), he did get to admitting that at no point was Revere shooting warning shots or ringing bells.

    From your link:

    Well, he's not firing warning shots. He is telling people so that they can ring bells to alert others.
    So he is not ringing bells nor firing warning shots like Palin said he was doing.

    And again from your link:

    Revere isn't trying to alert the British,
    So, again unlike Palin said he is not warning the "regulars".

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he's not firing warning shots. He is telling people so that they can ring bells to alert others. What he's doing is going from house to house, knocking on doors of members of the Committees of Safety, saying the regulars are out. That is, he knew that General Gage was sending troops out to Lexington and Concord, really Concord, to seize the weapons being stockpiled there, but also perhaps to arrest John Hancock and Samuel Adams, leaders of the Continental Congress who were staying in the town of Lexington.

    Remember, Gage was planning - this is a secret operation; that's why he's moving at night. He gets over to Cambridge, the troops start marching from Cambridge, and church bells are ringing throughout the countryside.

    BLOCK: So Paul Revere was ringing those bells? He was a silversmith, right?

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he was - he also was a bell ringer. That is, he rang the bells at Old North Church as a boy. But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells. He's telling other people - and this is their system before Facebook, before Twitter, before NPR - this was the way you get a message out, is by having people ring church bells, and everyone knows there is an emergency.

    And by this time, of course, the various town committees of safety, militia knew what the signals were, so they knew something was afoot. So this is no longer a secret operation for the British.

    Revere isn't trying to alert the British, but he is trying to warn them. And in April of 1775, no one was talking about independence. We're still part of the British Empire. We're trying to save it. So this is a warning to the British Empire what will happen if you provoke Americans.

    BLOCK:Sarah Palin also was saying there that Paul Revere's message to the British in his warning was: You're not going to take American arms - you know, basically a Second Amendment argument, even though the Second Amendment didn't exist then.

    Prof. ALLISON: Yeah. She was making a Second Amendment case. But in fact, the British were going out to Concord to seize colonists' arms, the weapons that the Massachusetts Provincial Congress was stockpiling there.

    So, yeah, she is right in that. I mean, she may be pushing it too far to say this is a Second Amendment case. Of course, neither the Second Amendment nor the Constitution was in anyone's mind at the time. But the British objective was to get the arms that were stockpiled in Concord.

    BLOCK: So you think basically, on the whole, Sarah Palin got her history right.

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, yeah, she did. And remember, she is a politician. She's not an historian. And God help us when historians start acting like politicians, and I suppose when politicians start writing history.

    [Paul Revere] warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells and making sure as he was 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.
    Her words. Now, the whole "warning the British" thing never really bothered me that much as I thought it to be a slip of the tongue though some say she is correct, but the ringing of bells and shooting guns thing is what caught my eye. She even mentioned the bells twice, so it's not like she did it by accident. From your post:

    Prof. ALLISON: Well, he's not firing warning shots. He is telling people so that they can ring bells to alert others.
    Prof. ALLISON: ...But he, personally, is not getting off his horse and going to ring bells.

    So clearly, she got that entire piece wrong. And it's not so much that she got it wrong. I do not care about that, but considering she is the one "promoting America" and she just took a tour, you'd think she could get something right.

    How much could you have possibly been paying attention if 30 seconds after leaving the place your only comment about it had one part that was questionable (the warning the British part) and the other part completely false (the ringing of bells and shooting guns by Revere)? That's like here taking a tour of the Museum of Natural history and then coming out and talking about how she learned the Earth was only 6,000 years old.

    The people are told to ring bells so she has it right
