Not many people will tell you this but Crispus Attucks was part of a mob who were throwing large chunks of ice at British soldiers. The shooting occurred when Attucks attacked and knocked to the ground a British soldier and was raising the wood club to attack the soldier.
"According to eyewitness testimony, Attucks fanned the flames, calling the soldiers "Lobsters!" and telling the crowd that the soldiers dared not fire. Then, according to one witness, Attucks took hold of a bayonet" of one of the soldiers, Hugh Montgomery, knocking him down with a club (or "cord stick") in his other hand."Source
He was noted for his troublemaking and his fondness for drink. He was enjoying both as part of the crowd throwing curses at the British sentry.
Many have treated this man as a historical hero, but that may be historically inaccurate! I recommend Hiller B. Zobel's book titled "The Boston Massacre".
After posting all of those reverse racism things yesterday, now Becky will crow "Martin Luther King Day". Hey, that's great but the man's name was Martin Luther King Jr.. Just saying.
Then she goes on to discuss a rally at noon today in Binn's Park promoted by Kevin Ressler. Yeah, the guy that wants to do lunch with the Supreme Leader of Iran. I shit you not. He says in this article that he wants to do lunch with the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei.
In what capacity is he tied to this rally? I don't think he is tied to it as much as he just enjoys being a progressive agitator.
I am still wondering if Kevin Ressler is some sort of terrorist sleeper cell here in Lancaster. Seriously, who comes up with the Grand Ayatollah as someone they'd like to do lunch with?
I've pointed out on several occasions some very obvious false things that he has claimed. For one thing, he falsely claimed to be a "lifelong Lancaster resident". That turned out to not be entirely true and, as I pointed out, he was born in Virginia. He also falsely claimed no Black Lives Matter group in the entire country was advocating violence against police. That was also proven to be a blatant lie. So, he doesn't have a really good standing in my book.
But OK, there is an event in Binn's Park today. Will Becky Holzinger be there? In what capacity is Kevin Ressler tied to the event? Please check back later today.
