...In this resolve, however, Bostonians were alone. After 1773, mobs throughout the colonies continued to treat offenders to the "new-fashioned discipline." And, within this period, the meaning of tar and feathers continued to evolve. The punishment that had once been reserved for trade war culprits was increasingly applied to Tories and their sympathizers. In Georgia, New Jersey, and Connecticut, villagers were quick to feather any perceived "enemy to the rights of America." Tar and feathers were also put to use by the various local committees that formed throughout the colonies. In Charleston, the Secret Committee ordered the first South Carolina tarring and featherings for two men charged with disrespect towards the General Committee. Women also took part in this patriotic ritual. In the fall of 1777, for instance, the participants in a quilting bee seized a youth who dared to speak against the Continental Congress. For want of tar and feathers, these women applied molasses and "the downy tops of the flags that grew in the meadow."(5)
As the focus of tar and feathers shifted from informers to loyalists, the practice became more violent. In 1775, a physician named Abner Beebe was blistered by the hot tar poured upon him. The mob then "carried [him] to an Hog Sty & rubbed [him] over with Hogs [sic] Dung. They threw the Hog's Dung in his Face, & rammed some of it down his Throat."(6) In 1776, a Charleston mob committed a even grizzlier execution. According to the local paper:
John Roberts, a dissenting minister, was seized on suspicion of being an enemy to the rights of America, when he was tarred and feathered; after which, the populace, whose fury could not be appeased, erected a gibbet on which they hanged him, and afterwards made a bonfire, in which Roberts, together with the gibbet, was consumed to ashes.(7)
Over time, the increasing violence of the colonial crowds gave rise to a great deal of ambivalence towards tarring and feathering among patriot organizers. Colonial leaders recognized the injustice of persecuting individuals who had committed no crime against the colonies. For this reason, many leaders began urging the American people to put aside the practice of tarring and feathering. Even Thomas Paine argued that tarring and feathering ought to be abandoned.(8) Yet others resisted Paine's proposal. As late as 1779, a Providence correspondent asked the American people to "[d]etermine whether the application of tar and feathers be not more absolutely necessary at this day, than at any time heretofore!"(9)
Notwithstanding this debate, tarring and feathering continued throughout the war and even after it ended. "In the Jersies," wrote Peter Oliver, "they naturalize [returning loyalists] by tarring and feathering; and it costs them more in scrubbing and cleaning than an admission is worth, so that you know the fate of trading your natale solum."(10) Though the Revolution ended with the Treaty of Paris, Americans still felt the need to confirm themselves in their own patriotism and to subject those who had opposed them to a painful rite of reintegration.
Phenomenal post!!!!

I'd decided to ignore any further blather flowing from the kook you replied to.

I'm sure he'll come up with some long-winded, blabbering, slobbering response in his futile attempt to justify his brainless hatred of Nelson Mandela.

Common sense will tell you that any violent conflict which originates in politics is going to split the civil population into factions, and there will always be ignorant hotheads who will resort to violence to prove the rightness of their position.

This behavior is exhibited in this forum everyday, in fact, There is How Now Brown Cow provided the perfect example.

It is so awesome when people use dramatically big words to make a point. It makes it so much more melodramatic (see how I did that) for the readers. You could take a sentence such as, "It really would be cool if fast food workers got paid more so they would work better", and turn it into "I feel as though it is imperative that lower wage earners yield a higher profit margin, in order to better our economy, and stimulate growth in interest in Management positions for service industry workers of the non-vegan variety". Goooood! Goooood!

So now the infighting among the Repubs have broke out into the open with Boehner and Ryan choosing the rino side..........

At least they are now out of the closet, and have identified their preferences of laying down with the libroids......

All based upon how a political elected official will always show their root beliefs given enough time.....


No difference between a rino and a libroid, other than how they fool their voters.....


Continued ruination of America is their goal..........with suppoprt from the Chambers of horror Commerce....

At last someone can respond with facts, not blathering nonsense!
I do not doubt the facts you have presented. Tarring and feathering was a more cruel punishment than it might sound to some; it wasn't like you just went and took a bath. I think there were even instances of death just from the tar soaking in. I still believe a gasoline soaked tire around the neck and set on fire is far worse, although John Roberts is probably lucky they hanged him BEFORE they burned him!
Regardless, the murder of innocent men, women, children (and school bombings) in S. Africa by the communists was an ugly bit of history that is conveniently overlooked in an attempt to make a saint of of a terrorist who could have renounced terrorism and walked out of prison. Although the ugly practice of apartheid was ended, it was replaced with communism, and the poor are still poor and the rich are still rich or gone. Not to mention crime is through the roof. Not sure how it was before, but it is bad now.
Regards.

Oh my is the poster you can only dream of being, Crapper. You couldn't speak truth with a teleprompter.

Did you make up that little quote? It sounds vaguely familiar. You are simply incapable of rational thought, original ideas, and free thought and you have proven this over and over again. Since you have none of these capabilities, just go ahead and insult me again you mental midget. You are nothing and your insults mean as much.

You have been unsuccessful in defending your hero, Mandela, as you have given me no facts to change my mind about the man. Nelson would be so disappointed in you.

you being from S.C., how is Graham doing in his bid for next year's election.....

"The Oct survey from Winthrop University found 37 percent of South Carolina voters approve of the job Graham is doing, compared with about 48 percent who said they disapprove. Winthrop showed Graham with an approval rating of 48 percent in February, and 44 percent in April."

Seems his numbers have fallen because of conservative voters not liking his RINO stands......like maybe the tea party has a hand in this....

Yep, just keep on thinking your thoughts about the tea party, they are weak and do not count in the scheme of elections huh.....


YOU might ask a number of others who have done a 180 before the 2014 elections..... not because of the tea party, but because they are honest politicians huh..........

As the saying goes, "you ain't seen nothing yet bub."

All them rino politicians are gonna be getting converted before election..........

Looks like Obama brought his own language interpreter to Mandela's funeral.........


"Sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela's memorial 'was a fake who made up his own hand gestures'"


Actually, he was interpreting Obama correctly, as Obama himself never makes sense, deals only in emotional phrases to soothe his emotional unstable supporters, and the interpreter was having a ball making the signs of nonsense Obama represents....
