"Yeah, it's a good point," said her co-host, Greg Gutfeld.

That right there is more damning than any fact checking could ever hope to be.

Those who don't know history are doomed to get a show on Fox News and repeat it.

Was this before or after the Revolutionary War started in Concord NH?
 
2014-01-17 04:51:04 PM  
I'm shocked she didn't mention the patriot who used guerilla tactics to avenge the death of his sons during the revolutionary war.
 
2014-01-17 04:52:01 PM  
She probably thinks Dance Dance Revolution is a period game.

Right before Paul Revere famously rode to warn that the Russians were invading via Alaska.

Well, he IS the one who coined, "Give me liberty or give me derp."

Our forefathers fought and died so Crispus Attucks couldn't raise taxes on our tea, goddamit.

And that's why Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin had to tag-team wrestle King George and Oliver Cromwell for the Magna Carta.

Theaetetus: And that's why Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin had to tag-team wrestle King George and Oliver Cromwell for the Magna Carta.


No, no, no. It was 'Xander Hamilton and Ben Franklin who did the roughing up. Good old Tom was chopping down cherry trees with George, trying to find that commie bastard Johnny Appleseed.

I wonder what she thinks about all the brave WWII veterans who fought to defeat Charlie Chaplin and his evil Nazi regime...

I thought Paul Bunyan was the one who chopped down the cherry tree, with the help of Babe, his big blue ox.

No, that was Pecos Bill. After that, he went back to Texas with a bunion on his foot. Or was it a banjo on his knee?

Neil Patrick Henry was the first openly gay Founding Father. He famously said "Give me liberty or SUIT UP!"

Absolutely disgusting.  A man gets his head blown off and you guys are making fun of it.  Piss off.

I have to again question Politifact's "Pants on Fire" rating for this one. It doesn't seem like she's lying so much as she's simply an idiot.
 
2014-01-17 06:03:37 PM  
Technically, she's right.
Most people DON'T know that.

John Henry was the one with the banjo. Dinah has a whole new outlook on life, and kitchens, in general. :)

Davy Crockett didn't have the banjo! Don't you read? Davy Crockett single-handedly saved the Alamo from the French!
