Pain and Humiliation with Tar and Feathers

In Colonial America, Victims Included Houses and at Least One Horse

[li]
Tarring and feathering will always be associated with the days leading to the American Revolution as a cruel tool for intimidation.

The practice of tarring and feathering was employed by opponents of British authority in America to intimidate and humiliate their enemies. Mobs that carried it out would seize the victim, daub tar on him, and then toss feathers over him. Frequently, such mobs would also load the victim on a cart and pull him through the town for everyone to see.

The victim suffered pain and humiliation, but deaths were rare. In at least one case, members of a mob about to tar and feather a man were talked into abandoning the plan out of concern the man might not survive the ordeal.

Pine Tar and Goose Feathers

Tar and feathers were both quite readily available in port towns. Pine tar was widely used around harbors to make ships, sails, and rigging waterproof. Goose feathers were used to stuff pillows, mattresses, and cushions.

Many assumed at the time that tarring and feathering was invented in colonial America. That, however, was not the case. Tarring and feathering occurred as far back as medieval times.

Americans probably learned of tarring and feathering by way of sailors who frequented Atlantic ports.



British Crackdown on Smuggling

Perhaps the first incident of tarring and feathering in connection with the colonists’ quarrels with Britain occurred in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1768. At the time, British authorities were imposing new duties on goods imported into the colonies and cracking down on smuggling to evade those duties. To punish a man who allegedly informed authorities about a smuggled cargo of molasses, a crowd in Salem "stripped him, then wrapped him in a Tarred Sheet, and rolled him in Feathers; having done this, they carried him about the Streets in a Cart, and then banished him from the town for 6 weeks."

News of that incident spread down the coast. Soon, groups that shared the same hatred for such informers seized upon the method of intimidation.

Victims were often partly or completely stripped. If the tar applied was hot, the victim’s skin would blister. But few reports indicate that the tar was heated before being applied. Also, in some cases, the tar was painted on over the victim’s clothes. Sometimes the victim was even permitted to wear a sheet or frock to protect his clothes. Hot or not, tar applied directly to the skin and allowed to dry would be difficult to get off. Sometimes, strips of skin would come off in the process of removing the tar.

The feathers from two pillows were about enough to cover a victim. In one incident, a feather mattress was cut open and dumped on a victim. In another case, members of a crowd repeatedly hurled a goose at their victim. In still another incident the feathers on the victim were set on fire.

Five-Hour Ordeal in Boston

In one of the cruelest tar-and-feather incidents, a man in Boston had his arm dislocated as he was stripped naked on one of the coldest nights of the year. Then over the course of five hours, he was not only tarred and feathered, but also carried through the town on a cart, beaten with clubs, whipped, forced to stand at the town gallows with a rope around his neck, and then forced to drink tea until he vomited.

In, Charleston, South Carolina, one tarring and feathering apparently ended with a lynching. A mob there seized a minister suspected of being an enemy. After tarring and feathering the man, they erected a gibbet, and then hanged the man.

Sometimes, crowds applied tar and feathers to houses of those who violated patriotic demands. On once occasion, a merchant found his horse tarred and feathered. In Monmouth County, New Jersey, a pamphlet critical of the Continental Congress was given a “suit of tar and turkey-buzzard's feathers” and nailed to a pillory post.

People on the other side of the quarrel also employed the tactic. British soldiers, annoyed with constant harassment on the eve of the war, tarred and feathered a Massachusetts man who illegally attempted to buy a gun from a soldier. They also forced him to wear a placard that read "American Liberty: a Speciment [sic] of Democrasy [sic]" and carted him around to the tune of Yankee Doodle.

Records indicate that crowds of patriotic women also applied tar and feathers. In Stamford Connecticut, women got word that a local mother had named her newborn after a former British commander. About 170 women gathered, marched to the mother’s house, and presented the mother “with a suit of tar and feathers.”

For Speaking Against Continental Congress

According to a contemporary newspaper report, women in Kinderhook, New York, who had gathered for a quilting bee, “tarred and feathered” a man for speaking against the Continental Congress. The “tar” they used was molasses. The “feathers” were the “downy tops of flags”—probably cattails—from a nearby meadow.

The practice of tarring and feathering continued long after the American Revolution and at least until 1835 when a man in Vicksburg, Mississippi, was tarred and feathered for disrupting a barbecue on the Fourth of July.

I love the part at 3:00 where Bishop tries to use the VA as an example of Government Competence in Health Care and a Vet in the audience PWNS him.

"Have YOU ever used a VA Hospital?"


I would have loved to be there. I would have asked how my grandfather died of a heart attack, while in a VA hospital because of another heart attack.


hell, my wife had to do rotations in VA hospitals. They would go in for rounds in the morning and look at patients' charts that had normal vitals through the night.. Then they'd go see the patients...in rigor.

I'm not so sure, I think the DemoRats are in some trouble. I could be wrong, but I think the People are starting to see the kind of Shit Sandwiches our Congressmen have been feeding us and are starting to grasp what is at stake here. Obama was NOT elected by a majority, he has no mandate. The House and Senate are enjoying the lowest approval numbers in history. Maybe the Dems were thinking that they could fix their approval problem by giving all current (and hopefully future) DemoRats the wonderful gift of Government Healthcare but couldn't resist putting all kids of skullduggery in it and now it is backfiring.

The Tea Parties and these Health Care Town Hall meetings tell me that the Democrats are in serious trouble this coming election. I think the real reason to rush off and get this passed is because they realize their goose is cooked and they need to free themselves up for other important Liberal agenda items while they have time before the elections.

All this is actually making me proud.

I just finished listening to Audio Clips of Obama regarding Health Care Reform - Basically he wants a Single Payer System with elimination of Employer Provided Health Care
Barney Frank also stated the same

Then I listened to old Audio of Obama promising to never raise taxes on the middle class and promises of Tax Cuts

Obama and Company's Budget will add 9 Trillion Dollars to the Deficit over the next 10 years - Insanity

So "Timmy The Tax Cheat " Geithner has vowed " We will do whatever it takes " - Gee thanks for being so specific

This is why OB was driving to get this passed by the Aug. recess. They KNOW the Congresswhores will hear about it when they go home (unless it's Sen. Bayh of IN. He NEVER goes to Indiana.)

I was kind of disappointed that the Tea Parties didn't continue but this may be a substitute.

Good videos.

Exactly. All that congress will have to do is keep things quiet for a while and it will all be forgotten about by the time elections roll around.

How many congress critters voted for the bailouts and got re-elected?

that has been the past, but w/ all the information online w/ youtube maybe this shit will stick for a while longer. people will hopefully not forget as quickly when it can be brought up quickly by a coupld simple searches

Too many intelligent folks I know have the same opinion as me. I will quit being a producer of wealth and taxes when the .gov gets more of my money from my labor than I do.

I will become a parasite. And trust me, I have 2 of 4 sisters, plus the offspring of those 2, who are professional parasites. I can learn how to survive on much less, very quickly.

I wonder how long those Vietnam Vets that got suckered into AARP by the promise of discounts on everything, will sit by and let this continue.

I predict that enough of these folks, who served their country in very trying times, will start to realize that the same folks who spit on them when they returned home, are the same ones trying like hell to kill America.
I predict they will take up arms, alone or in small groups, and take out their revenge. They have nothing to lose, as they will be part of the first group to be rationed. The elderly. When someone gets fuckedover enough, they will react. When that someone has combat experience, has already paid the entry fee (first one costs ya, the rest are free), they will have no problem killing the new enemies of America.

So the roofing tar you buy at Home Depot in a 5 gallon bucket, is it liquid at room temperature? Or do you have to heat it up?

The last time I saw honest to God pine tar, it was in a feed store for livestock use only. But it really wouldn't matter given the nature of these folks.

The last time I saw honest to God pine tar, it was in a feed store for livestock use only. But it really wouldn't matter given the nature of these folks.


Contact cement is liquid at room temps. I'm just saying.


now would be the time to pick up a couple extra five gallon buckets of driveway sealer.

For this operation Ian Kelby had selected from his seldom-entered garage attic an antique Russian bolt-action rifle, a Mosin-Nagant in 7.62 by 54mm, an obsolete rifle designed for the Czar’s army. The example which Ian owned had been manufactured before his deceased grandfather had been born in Holland, and to a modern eye it was bizarre looking with a wooden fore stock extending all the way out to the end of its thirty inch long barrel. Obsolete or not, Viet Cong snipers had been capable of hitting unlucky American sentries at well beyond 600 meters with them, and communist bloc shooting teams had always performed well in international target competitions with accurized versions.

Ian had bought his Nagant for $75 cash outside of a gun show that he’d stumbled across in West Virginia, while on a kayaking trip with Roy. He’d sensed its potential and never shown it to anyone else but his friend. Once he’d shot it a few times and discovered how uncannily accurate it was when firing good quality ammunition, he’d made the effort to put a cheap 3X9 variable magnification Bushnell scope on it for another $175 cash, including a special Nagant scope mount. For $250 he had a rifle which could hit ten inch diameter paper plate targets taped to cardboard boxes a paced-off 550 yards away, as long as he was firing from a steady rest position.

And a steady rest position is exactly what he had here, 550 yards across Glen Falls Park from Senator Randolph’s back deck. Ian’s antique Nagant was lying balanced across a rotten tree stump. Without his even touching the rifle it was aligned so that her house could be seen when he leaned over from his sitting position and looked through the bright ocular lens of the scope. He had never attended a military sniper school, and he was not wearing a bushy burlap rag covered “ghillie suit.” He didn’t lie frozen in place in the prone-position ready to shoot for hours on end, perfectly disguised as a six foot long patch of weeds. He just sat behind a tree stump surrounded by bushes, wearing a faded green sweat suit, and waited for her to come home. Except for his skin-colored latex surgical gloves and the rifle, he could have just been a hiker or a bird watcher taking a rest.

By 5:45 pm the sun was dropping low into the woods behind him, but it was still shining on the Senator’s deck when he saw the colorful flash of vehicles rushing up her private drive and disappearing out of his sight on the other side of her house. He put his binoculars and his water bottle back into his brown daypack, and hunched up close behind his rifle as his heart raced from sixty to well over a hundred beats a minute.

He was sitting Indian-style with his shins against the base of the tree stump. The low wooden stock of the Nagant didn’t provide a good “cheek weld” to Ian’s face when he was looking through the scope, which was raised well above the original iron sights, but this kept his skin, and his DNA, from being left on it. He squirmed his body into a tighter position behind the rifle and the Senator’s house leaped out through the light-grabbing ocular lens of the scope, which was already turned to its maximum 9X magnification. At that range and magnification, the Senator’s house filled the entire diameter of the lens from side to side. With the rifle so well supported along its length by the decayed stump, and his body position so steady, the crosshairs remained fixed and unmoving on her back doors.

A sturdy-looking waist-high wooden railing prevented people from tumbling off the deck and fifteen feet down to the ground behind the Senator’s house. Kelby saw the railing as an obstacle which could potentially deflect his shot if she came out and sat down right away. It would be chancy to try for a shot over or through the rails if she were sitting, but it was doable as a last resort with the heavy 180 grain bullet he had in the chamber.

Ten minutes after Senator Randolph’s party arrived home, Kelby saw the curtains move behind her large sliding glass doors, then they slid open and a man in a dark jacket and white shirt came out, holding his own pair of binoculars. He spent barely a minute scanning the valley and the distant woods, and Kelby had to stifle his laughter at the man’s feeble effort at counter-surveillance. His shooting position was in deep shadows and quite invisible from the house, while the Senator’s back deck was a floodlit stage in the late afternoon sun.

At 6:05 the Senator herself finally came out, wearing blue slacks and a beige cardigan sweater. Her chin-length dyed auburn hair was as stiffly styled and coiffed as it always was, moving with her face like a medieval helmet. The Senator and a different man, this one in a gray suit, walked over to the railing. She was pointing with her arm to the stream with its little foot bridge, and other features visible to her in the meadow.

Kelby steadied the Bushnell’s thin black crosshairs on her left armpit to account for the slight cross breeze, and began squeezing the Nagant’s trigger while slowly exhaling. His heart was racing wildly, his blood was surging with such force that he could hear nothing but its whooshing in his ears, but the crosshairs remained steady while his right finger gently squeezed.

Suddenly with a deafening BLAM the rifle’s hardwood stock launched itself back into his right shoulder, and the thin metal rim at the back of the scope struck him just above his right eye. He quickly reacquired the back deck through the scope for one last quick look: somebody was down, and there was a flurry of activity around his or her body. Randolph wasn’t visible, so logically it had to be her lying on the deck behind the railing.

He retracted the bolt slowly to extract the single shell case by hand; he didn’t want to leave that particular piece of evidence behind. The empty brass shell went into his brown day pack, and then he gently tossed the rifle into a patch of thick ferns. It was just an untraceable single-use throwaway, and he had others. He peeled off his latex gloves and stuffed them into his pack.

After a quick scan of the area for anything left behind, Kelby put on his pack, jogged a short distance to where a cheap mountain bike was stashed, and pedaled hard and fast down the fire trail to where his friend was waiting a mile away.

Roy Millard popped the trunk from inside of his burgundy Chevy Malibu when he saw Ian pedal into view. He was parked behind an abandoned gas station on a bypassed and seldom-used rural blacktop behind the state park. Kelby threw his bike inside the open trunk, slammed it shut, and got in on the passenger side. He high-fived his friend, who then handed him a cold bottle of Gatorade, started the engine and slowly drove off.

“I heard it. You get her?”

“Yeah.” Kelby guzzled half of the bottle of green liquid in one long drink. There had not been a molecule of moisture in his mouth since he had seen the cars arriving at her house.

“You sure?”

“Positive… I think. Yeah, I got her.”

No, you have a congresscritter lying his ass off to you. Congress passed legislation labeling CO2 as a pollutant. The Bush EPA did not enforce that hair-brained legislation. The enviroweenies took them to court to MAKE them enforce the provisions of the law that regulated CO2 as a pollutant. The USSC eventually ruled that the executive had to enforce the law as it was passed by Congress.

The USSC didn't make CO2 a pollutant by judicial fiat. Congress did it by legislative fiat.

What he told you is a bald faced lie...and that's 100% of what's wrong with the system. People like him can lie like a fucking rug and get away with it by blaming the complexities of the government that THEY helped create.

You should send him a nice response letter outlining the facts listed above and politely inform him that you don't appreciate being lied to. Especially spend some time expressing how unhappy you are that he thinks you're stupid enough to buy that load of tripe.


Thanks for that tid-bit. I'll make it known to everyone at his town hall meeting in 2 weeks.
