Despite what the whole world knows of U.S. History, Sarah Palin says she wasn’t wrong when she rewrote the story of Paul Revere’s ride last week.
“You realize that you messed up about Paul Revere, don’t you?” ”Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace asked the potential 2012 presidential candidate.
“I didn’t mess up about Paul Revere,” replied Palin, a paid contributor to the network.
“Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well-armed persons, individual, private militia that we have,” she added. “He did warn the British.”
Palin, who again said she has not decided whether to run for president, was asked about the Revolutionary War hero during a stop Thursday in Boston on her East Coast bus tour.
“He who warned the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms by ringing those bells, and 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.”
Palin’s brush with the nation’s history came toward the end of her “One Nation” bus tour that generated intense interest as she traveled from Washington to New England. Along the way, she steadfastly refused “a million times” to say whether she was running for president.
“I’m publicizing Americana and our foundation and how important it is that we learn about our past and our challenges and victories throughout American history, so that we can successfully proceed forward,” Palin said in the broadcast interview.
Guess that’s not something she intends on doing by example.
