Beck says he wants to do an entire show tomorrow night, getting all the experts together, to show that Sarah Palin was indeed right about Paul Revere warning the British. In the clip below he also highlights the lengths to which the Left is still trying to smear her over Paul Revere, noting that they are now saying Revere was bluffing or something.

I’ve told you before that I always welcome someone defending Sarah Palin because she is target number one on the left. And kudos to Beck if he goes through with this show.

    Sounds like all the financial stories Beck mentioned the other night are not quite interesting enough to pursue.

  • Steven

    Beck is desperate for publicity and is grabbing on to an issue that has already run its course in the media. To try to revive this in the faux attempt to “defend” Palin, actually has the opposite effect. This story is a distraction. The media intended to wipe the success of her bus tour out of the minds of the public. Beck is perpetuating this objective.

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ therightscoop

      I completely disagree. While he’s missed the news cycle on this issue…defending her against the onslaught against her is never a distraction.

          Exactly!!

      • http://twitter.com/RichMcCreedy Richard McCreedy

        Totally agree.

        It’s run the course to those of us who regularly check political websites and blogs and see the news travel at lightspeed. That isn’t the majority of people.

        The majority who get their news still get it from the nightly news and the local paper. Just today Eugene Robinson wrote a column hammering Palin in the Washington Post about this very thing. Warning that somehow allowing this comment about Revere to stand would be dangerous to society. So, for many people, the story hasn’t passed at all.

        • Steven

          And those people are going to watch Glenn Beck? They are going to take him as credible? The Boston Herald that Sarah Palin linked to is enough word to use to dispel any of this from anyone you want to defend Sarah against. Not Glenn Beck! This is pure publicity and ratings play by Beck and not a real defense of Palin. On the contrary reviving this story hurts Palin more coming from Beck because he’s implying she needs a defense. She doesn’t and she ably handled this three days ago on Foxnews Sunday!

      • Steven

        The people on this thread have completely missed the point. The question was a gotcha question. It turns out, Palin got the media with an account of Revere that was not known by them. But it doesn’t matter to the media if they get it right or not, the point is they want to keep talking about this to make this issue the whole of her bus tour. Instead of talking about what a smashing success her bus tour is, we have this back and forth about Revere. Sarah Palin herself made it clear on Sunday she was accurate. The Boston Herald came out that same day if I am not mistaken. Game, set, match.

        But Beck wants to do a whole show on this on Thursday??? Pleeeaassseee. This is not defending Sarah Palin, its self-serving publicity for Beck. Where was Beck on Monday? For that matter, since Palin said this about Revere last Thursday, where was he then?? He’s late and he’s reviving this thing when its pretty much off the radar and Palin is about to embark on the second leg of her tour.

        Sarah doesn’t need to be defended by Beck. He’s been all over the place when it comes to her. Hemming and hawing about whether he would support her or whether she’s running or not or whether she’s intelligent, etc. Suggesting others like Michele Bachmann and Allen West for POTUS, instead of full throatedly just saying “I want Sarah Palin to be POTUS!” Sorry if I am not too high about Beck “defending” Palin.

          I don’t agree. The left has a runaway laugh fest going. They are hilarious and don’t have an interest in the facts. I remember when I was there, one of them. It’s like a runaway horse that needs to be stopped. It’s just unruly. I am glad Glenn is willing to devote a whole show to combat these fools.

      It hasn’t run it’s course. Never assume everyone follows every aspect of a story. Bernie Goldberg did his weekly stint on O’Reilly the other night and he didn’t even know Palin was right until Bill told him.

      Lies like this need to be exposed with 10 times the air time of the smear because fewer people watch the follow ups.

      “distraction”… a distraction to whom?

      • Steven

        Reread what I wrote. If this is not meant to distract the public about the success of Palin’s bus tour (that by the way is meant to help her negative ratings), then why hasn’t the media gone days and days about Barack Obama’s gaffes, especially his embarrasing trip to Britian just a week or two ago? He mistakenly wrote the wrong year, blew the toast to the Queen and none of these register more than one day as a story. This Revere thing should have been nothing but a single day story if that. Since the media wanted to promote their narrative of Sarah Palin, Sarah took them to task and then was vindicated by several historians as was reported in a major newspaper, the Boston Herald. This was on Sunday! And Beck wants to ride to rescue on Thursday, one week after Sarah’s supposed gaffe???

      Then what is the liberal media doing with every story? Does twisting the truth sound accurate? Does taking the attention from their poor liberal leaders in government and the detrimental mistakes they are constantly making, and putting the focus on Conservatives like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck usinsound accurate? If you say no, I can only conclude, you must be involved in the liberal media business. Granted, its a well-paying career for not having to do the slightest bit of valid research. Maybe? Maybe not?

    Beck along with Rush are losing it for Palin…though I believe she gave a semi accurate account her delivery was completely inarticulate. Not everyone that speaks live off the cuff can speak articulately- I am not able to unless it is something I am 100% certain about and I probably would have said something similar but Beck and Rush going to the lengths to “vindicate” her aren’t going to win over the independents! Plus Beck is spinning it!

    People don’t vote for people they feel sorry for…Beck and Rush need to leave her alone and let her stand or fall or her own…she obviously is strong willed and strong minded and able to handle things herself! She got along just fine before they ever knew her!

      Why is it that people who defend Palin bother people like you more than Palin herself does? Could it be that you know, deep down, that your hatred of Palin is undeserved so when you see other people defend her that makes you feel small?

      • Anonymous

        Because they are defending Palin for the wrong reasons. I don’t genuinely beleive that pundits feel Palin would make a decent president, but they know (e.g. Rush, Beck, Hannity, etc) she’s very popular. She’s especially popular amongst their listeners/viewers. So naturally, they’re going to support Palin even when she makes a mistake and then claim the “lame stream media” is targeting her, when in reality she puts the target on her back.

      I was under the impression that she said he rode warning the people, who rang the bells and fired the shots. The argument seems to be weather she said he rang the bells and fired the shots. The fact check story assumes she meant he did. I totally see why Beck is on this. He’s a big time American history buff. It’s easy to say let her stand on her own when you don’t have the entire left, 95% at least of all media and elitest republicans out to destroy you.

      • http://twitter.com/cfallon57 Cheryl Fallon

        Paul Revere was warning the British

        “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.”

        Paul Revere did NOT do that-but I do understand what she was getting at.

    • Anonymous

      um, thats pretty stupid. The left and media protect their own. Why shouldn’t we when one is unfairly attacked. So you think the smart way is to let someone live or die based on their ability without any support. What happened to team work? It must be lonely, fighting your own battles because no one is going to come save your arse.

      • http://twitter.com/cfallon57 Cheryl Fallon

        Her delivery of the story was inarticulate-look up the definition-if you don’t know what it means.

        Revere did NOT ride warning the British-nor did he ring bells. YOU nor PALIN nor BECK (no matter how hard he tries)can revise this story.

        And Palin was long governor before she needed the help of the American public to defend her every move. The constant defending of her on every little thing believe it or not is making her look small and weak-she isn’t doing it-her followers are.

        I think what she meant and what she said got twisted…and that can happen when someone just throws a history question out there like that! Especially history!

        • Anonymous

          Read the original if you can find it. The word British is not even in there. This was a word, sorry I forget, like Regular. It meant the regulars of the British army who were stationed over here and that is who Revere was talking to and about in his account.

          Did you get your facts in the public schools like we all did?

          As for inarticulate, she was fine. Obviously multitasking but managed to string it together. I am betting she did a better job of it that you would. It’s so easy to criticize.

      She wasn’t just speaking “off the cuff” she was speaking while moving in a line with her daughter. We can’t all have our Teleprompters set up for us everywhere we go.

      I love the allusion to the “victim card.” Nice try. “People fighting back” are not the same as “people playing the victim.” Wienergate proves the media are being trounced. No one trusts the major papers or news channels anymore. Palin has been clobbering both the media and Obama, deep, wide, and continuous (as the drill sergeant’s say). Yet you mention the “feel sorry for” phrase. what you should be typing is “no quarter.” She gives no quarter, and asks for none.

                  mr. CM Sackett,.. I REALLY am getting tired of having to reply to this TROLL.

                  thks, vac

                  Also I am NOT looking to piss on any one with a REAL comment.

                  Q to the TROLLS?

                  Why do libratard TROLLS hang out at conservative sites and toss verbal bombs????

                  I do NOT go read any HUFF PO crap.

                  I know everything they post is libratard drivel.

                  I do not go to ANY libratard sites and toss bombs.

                  Why would I ?

                  Am I going to change their minds???

                  NO. What would be the point?

                  Stupid will STAY stupid.

                  I care NOT as long as Stupid leaves me the heck alone.

                  Which brings me back to my Question. Why are you libratards here???

                  Are you trying to change my mind on an issue???

                  NOT going to happen.

                  OR are you JUST trying to SHUT UP opposing view points????

                  Afternoon VACarter,

                  Understood, completely. Here’s the ‘scoop’…

                  1. This little conservative B-BQ belongs solely to SCOOP (He’s entrusted ‘sheriff’ duties to myself, and another truth-slinger from Montana ~ and generally trusts our meting out the justice around here)

                  2. Since Scoop’s hard week of trying to find/install/tweek the best possible comment system for the folks… I’ve been UNABLE to whack the hired curs.

                  BUT I’M BACK.

                  NOTE: Scoop is superb in his dealings with even the basement ‘pros’. He is notably more ‘patient’ with piss-ants than I.

                  Neither of us makes any apology for that… or has any notion of changing our respective “Oh, H#LL NO!” limits.

                  NOTE2: You are diligent (and pretty savvy) in marking the vermin among these good folk. THANK YOU.

                  One suggestion ~ perhaps be just a tad less ‘warm’ in your understandably heated replies to some of them.

                  As for what makes up the essence of POLITICS… the historic recipe has been (and is even MORE today):

                  2. No olfactory senses present (or at least a VERY GOOD GAME of not showing their existence)
                  3. Little to NO SHAME (see: “Weiner”. See also: DEMOCRAPS. See also: Most REPUGNANTANS)

                  …all shoveled with a SMILE (or worse, a nose-in-the-air, ‘you creatures are beneath ME’ vomitous condescension ~ see: DEMOCRAPS… PERIOD).

                  Oh, btw, I’M BACK.

        My friend, I’m not complaining… just stating I’d “be impressed” if Beck were to school us on the guy who logged more miles than Revere on his horse. I’m pretty sure the only reason Revere is more notorious is due to a song (or maybe a poem?) back back in the day.

          I can understand that with the clarity. I was surprised he didn’t include anything regarding a few rarely mentioned American heroes like Bissell on those Friday segments he did purely on historical figures misrecognized in contemporary education.

I do remember the story of Bissell’s contributions to the efforts toward freedom from British tyranny on more than two or three occasions.

                Indeed, I first heard of him on a special Robert Wuhl had on HBO some years ago… according to Wuhl, Israel Bissell wasn’t really a catchy name that fit well in song, unlike Paul Revere’s. I think the Beastie Boys would concur.

    Look, I like Palin, but all the one hour specials in the world won’t change the fact that she gave a rambling, incoherent answer. That doesn’t make her dumb, it just makes her human. Beck and Limbaugh are making themselves look silly by defending it and trying to twist it into some kind of golden oratory.

    The best thing for Palin to have done would have been to be honest at the start and say, “Yeah, that was an ill-formed response.”

    But at the end of the day I am disappointed with the media on both the Left and the Right, because this kind of nit-picky pettiness is not what I care about.

    One more thing. Anyone see a microphone in the video of Palin speaking about Paul Revere? She’s always surrounded by cameras, so how would she know a “reporter” was “interviewing” her? The video was shot from above and was obviously not shot by the questioner, who Governor Palin looks at, right nearby.

    I would expect no politician , nor any of you people anywhere, to sound like you are “responding to a reporter” when you aren’t in a situation that even looks like a “reporter” is recording anything.

    So people using “rambling” and “incoherent” in this situation are being totally disingenuous. You aren’t believable.

  • Kenneth DeRosa

    Just in case there is any remaining doubt as to whether the gun shots and bell ringing that Revere and the other riders had caused to happen as they alarmed the countryside were taken as a warning by the British regulars that they would meet colonial resitance if they tried to take away the munitions and gunpowder supplies at Concord, here is Fischer again describing what transpired after Revere had issued his verbal threats/warnings while being held captive:

    “They were now about a half mile from Lexington Green. Suddenly they heard a gunshot. Major Mitchell turned in a fury to [Revere] and demanded an explanantion. Revere told him that it was a signal ‘to alarm the country’. A few minutes later the riders were startled to hear the heavy crash of an entire volley of musketry, from the direction of Lexington’s meeting house. Probably it came from a party of militiamen who were clearing their weapons before they entered Buckman Tavern for a bit of cheer. The Regulars were appalled to hear it. Revere remembered that the volley ‘appeared to alarm them very much’.

    “At last the officers began to feel the full import of what Paul Revere had been telling them. His words of warning took on a stronger meaning when punctuated by gunfire. The sound of a single shot had suggested to them that surprise was lost. The crash of a volley appeared evidence that the country was rising against them. As they came closer to the Common they began to hear Lexington’s town bell clanging rapidly. The [other] captive Loring, picking up Revere’s spirit, turned to the officers and said, ‘The bell’s rining! The town’s alarmed, and you’re all dead men!’

    Paul Revere’s Ride, David Hackett Fischer, (1994), chapter 8, citing Sanderson, Deposition; Jonas Clarke, “Narrative of the Events of April 19.” ms., LHS, 32.

    To watch people defend her is almost as embarrassing as watching her say this:

    “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.”

    “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.”

    You have to see the clip or read her words. To hear someone defend this saying “well Paul Revere did warn the British when he got caught…” does not demonstrate what she actually said and glosses over all the stupid stuff she got wrong. Try to square what she said with this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Revere#.22Midnight_Ride.22

    I’d vote for Palin if I had to, but this is ridiculous. Our regard for history shouldn’t be thrown out the window for partisan reasons.

        OK then, is “conservapedia”a left leaning too? Because that doesn’t jive with Palin’s “history” either:

        “On April 16, 1775, aware of pending troop movements, he rode to Concord, Massachusetts to warn residents there and urge them to move their stockpile of arms. Two nights later in April 18, he observed a pre-arranged signal of lanterns hung in the bell tower of the Old North Church and knew that British regulars had been ferried across the Charles River to Cambridge[1]; they were on the move towards Concord and Lexington to seize the armory stores and arrest leading patriot leaders, among them John Hancock and Samuel Adams. After being rowed across the river himself, Revere borrowed a horse and set out on his famous “midnight ride” to sound the alarm; he succeed in warning Hancock and Adams, as well as verifying that the local Sons of Liberty in Lexington had seen the lantern signal from Boston. He was joined by a second rider, William Dawes, and together they rode towards Concord to warn the residents there; a third rider (Dr. Samuel Prescott) would join them as well. But a British patrol in the area stopped and arrested them; Prescott escaped almost immediately, and would succeed in carrying the alarm to Concord. Dawes would escape within hours, while Revere was released later, to make his way on foot to witness the “shot heard round the world” on Lexington Green, the opening battle of the American Revolution. ”

        No, her comments are already transcribed and I was comparing what she said to the actual history, I didn’t feel like summarizing it here when it’s already been written down, so I linked to a common site. And I think it’s pretty darn creepy this idolatry of Palin, she’s like a right wing Obama or something. You, for example, have responded to every criticism of her in this thread.

        You keep saying she should be excused because she’s with her kid in line but that doesn’t give her a pass to make stuff up. She could have easily just said “I can’t walk with my kid and make coherent statements about 3rd grade history, please ask me at another time”.

          What next from you people? She doesn’t hold her handbag right?

          C’mon m quick. really….like the rest of the GOP field is better than Palin? You have to be crazy it’s like comparing Gold to a rusted out ’79 Buick. Palin is by far the cream of the crop. No one comes close to her attitude, star power, experience and record. She is unbeatable. Believe the propaganda if you wish, but you might as well believe the same propaganda that Obama is doing a good job then to. If you can’t figure out that Palin has to do what she does, to turn the tables on the media then you just don’t get it.

          Sarah Palin was correct on the central issue of Revere “warning the Brits” and experts agree with Sarah Palin.Her critics said she was wrong about “warning the Brits” ; its seems she was right after all.. Palin DID get it right, and all historians and experts say so. Now her critics are trying to spin themselves out of the nasty place they find themselves.

          After Palin made her statement about Revere in the Pizza shop , her critics said she was wrong about the “warning” and she was wrong about the bells; now it seems she was right.

      You know how Sarah Palin said Paul Revere warned the British? Well, he did. Now, who looks stupid?

      Washington Times Editorial: The Palin version of history was correct

      “It soon turned out, however, that Mrs. Palin’s version of history was correct”

      Even NPR confirms that Gov.Palin was right about Revere (interview of professor Robert Allison Chairman of history dept Suffolk university Boston)

      Case in point the Paul Revere. Palin DID get it right, and all historians and . But you won’t admit that because it doesn’t suit your narrative

        WOW…so as long as the “left” agrees with you you will say they are telling the truth! Amazing how it all works when it suits your views-I dare say that the right that follows Palin is NO different than the left that follows Obama!

    Beck is hard to predict. I would hope he will do the right thing, She was with him at the event in Washington. I am sure he would like for her to got to the Courage event in Jerusalem.

    Sarah Palin.

    IS.

    Our Paul Revere.

    Here.

    Now.

    At this moment.

    The Marxists are here…to arms, to arms…they are here and have usurped power.
    Sarah has the ability to wake people from their slumber.
    Even moreso than Beck.

    So I am glad that Beck is going to revisit this topic on his show.
    The level that the LibMedia has dwelled on this presents the perfect opportunity to bring it up again and set the record straight.
    Because it is a very timely topic.
    Our Freedoms are under attack…as much now as they were when Paul Revere efforted to wake his sleeping countrymen.
