At the link you find below, you’ll open up the story I wrote last Thanksgiving about the whack jobs at the now-irrelevant 9.12 Project who hosted an article that claimed something that was actually quite extraordinary. The article, whose title and author I have still been unable to find, claim that Pilgrims came to America to escape European socialism, not to pursue religious freedom.
We would like to present this as another example of Beck rewriting history, and we can, if you can help us find the post. Here’s more on the story below.
Happy Thanksgiving from TGBR.
Here are some links I found from mental midgets who have repeated this goofy, hysterical revisionist tripe or even worse, revised it into something else. (John Stossell. There’s a jive turkey if ever there was one!)
Representative Todd Akin R-Missouri
Politzoid… who claims that the Pilgrims were actually sent to America as a socialist experiment by a group of investors…
Here’s one by Kelly that is written in a language s/he obviously doesn’t understand because it says nothing about socialism except that s/he can’t read, which is a failure of our public schools.
I will continue to dig.
OK, here is a boatload of information about the so-called “socialist” Pilgrims mythology invented by those cranky, lying bastards on the right wing who want to ruin everything. Of course, this time what they’re trying to ruin is anyone’s faith that people can band together in times of need and accomplish common goals. Nope. Can’t be done.
Read and please have something soft under your jaw because it may drop unexpectedly.
