BigHollywood: A recent episode of Fox’s new show Making History paints the British redcoats as sophisticated while portraying America’s Founding Fathers as hayseeds obsessed with guns and the right to be armed.
Newsbusters published the text of one portion of Sunday night’s episode of Making History, in which Hancock, Adams, and Revere share an exchange after a provocateur named Chris warns that the British are coming to take away their guns:
Chris: This is America. Yes. Yes! The British are coming to take your guns.
Revere: I will die for my right to kill others while defending myself.
Hancock: If they take our guns, then how are we supposed to fight the people who would take our guns?!
Adams: My gun! Mine! My gun! Oh, gunny, gunny, gunny. They’ll never get you. Mwah.
A video of the segment makes clear that Adams is presented as a goofy character who talks to his gun and kisses it.
