RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Paul Revere (left) warnin' those soldiers about those Russkies.
Sarah Palin, who warned, uh, the Russkies British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as she’s riding her moose 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

Paul Revere was a lumberjack who had a big blue ox. I think. Sorry, I'm a Brit and we have no idea who this bloke is. There was Paul Revere's ride, so maybe he had a theme park? I dunno.

He's famous for riding Babe, his blue ox. waving his axe over his head and shouting The red coats are coming, the red coats and coming. Meant you, probably?

His battle cry was picked up years later by a Senator Joe McCarthy, who, having a difficult time remembering all those words, just shortened it to, The REDS are coming, the REDS are coming.

This short section is taken from Andrew what's his name from the other wiki's US History for ____________. (fill in the blank).

Not to be confused with the horse Mike D rode in the Beastie Boys song "Paul Revere".
