Give me Liberty or Death! Was Patrick Henry Speaking to us?

5
(73)

This is a 22-minute film from 1936 that starred John Litel as Patrick Henry. You will be stunned at the similarity of the conditions in 1775 that led to the American Revolution and the conditions that exist today. Patrick Henry’s famous speech in which he said “Give me liberty or give me death” is included in its entirety and delivered with such passion and clarity of expression, it is easy to imagine sitting in the room during the Second Virginia Convention listening to every word. Henry’s analysis of the growing tyranny and his call to action before it is too late is just as appropriate to us today – perhaps even more so – as it was to his fellow Virginians in 1775. Although this is taken from American history, the issues are universal. Speech delivered on March 23, 1776. Film released in 1936.

  1. There are so many that are jealous of the American constitution, declaration of independence and the freedom to be anything you want in the USA. It is a genius system that may have some problems but has been copied by many other nations. May God Redeem the US and Canada from the socialist movement. God Save us.

  2. I am from India and it has brought tears of defiance to my eyes. Liberty for all and death to those who dare to dream they can take our liberty away.

  3. I am not American, but I was certainly moved by that passionate speech. There is oppression all over the world – oppression against women in Islam, against Christians under both Communism and Islam, oppression of the silent majority by the loud-mouthed so-called ‘gay’ movement, green movement, climate change activists. Everywhere you look, people are frightened to say what they think. “Political correctness” is robbing us of our freedom of speech. We might lose our homes or businesses if we say something so we stay quiet and let the oppressors win. We need to shout as Patrick Henry did, “Give me liberty or give me death!”

  4. THANKS VERY MUCH – SO GOOD TO HEAR FROM THE PAST FROM OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, BUT NOW OUR COUNTRY’S LIBERAL DEMOCRAT PARTY AND BLM ARE TEARING DOWN OUR STATUTES WHENEVER THEY CAN. THESE ANARCHISTS KNOW NOTHING ABOUT AMERICAN HISTORY, BUT WE THE PEOPLE HAVE TO STAND UP TO THEM EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GETTING ALL THE ATTENTION RIGHT NOW.

  5. I am not aware of any place it can be purchased. We would be glad to do that but, unfortunately, we don’t own the copyright. So, an even better deal is to let everyone know it can be seen at no cost at Red Pill University. That’s what we do. Of course, if the video were for sale and the owner asked us to take it down, we would comply immediately.

  6. Great video. I never heard of John Litel before. The future of the United States is not bright.

  7. I listened to this earlier but lost my note to you. I this video available for sale? Keep up the good work

  8. If this movie does nothing else it moves me to take a stand. I fight in my heart over the idea that God wants me to just be quiet and know that God is faithful. Well I think that God wants me to take a stand against those that want to take away my liberty. By liberty I mean the right to decide how God wants me to live.

  9. Awesome video! We need more like this sent everywhere to contact evil forces such as BLM, ANTIFA, and the SPLC! Thanks much!

  10. I cannot express how thrilled, how grateful I am to have found this superb post of Patrick Henry’s immortal speech ! I am sharing and hope others will also share !

  11. Sadly we are at this point – so blind to and unappreciative of our God-given liberty. Life is hell without freedom.

  12. Absolutely outstanding film.
    Some two-hundred and forty-five years have passed and America again finds itself in danger of losing freedom. The only difference is that the enemy is our own elected and un-elected officials – the enemy within.
    To maintain any semblance of liberty, it will take a purging of those who seek to enslave us in our own land.
    “Give me liberty or give me death” is beginning to sound once more throughout our sovereign land.
    LORD, IF NEED BE, LET IT BE SO!

  13. We’re close to that Now, let us all who love freedom call from the roof tops, give us liberty or give us death.

  14. Well, aside from the irony of a slave owner preaching freedom, the assertion that peace and ‘safety’ are not worth the price of freedom is absolutely correct. The current mantra of ‘keeping us safe’ makes me nauseous. The statement that most resembled the current situation was, for me, ‘shall we wait until there is a British soldier in every house?’. SIRI, ALEXA,CELL PHONES, They are already here.

  15. PATRICK HENRY’S SPEECH MOVES ME IN THE CORE OF MY VERY BEING … BUT THE SURROUNDING ENACTMENTS BY OTHER PLAYERS ARE TEPID AND UNCONVINCING …

  16. As a foreign citizen, living abroad, I hope and pray the American voters are paying heed to this movie clip. America you are all that stands between freedom for the world and tyranny throughout the world.

  17. Wow, that was powerful! And true to today…It was also encouraging to see how Henry’s wife ended up supporting him.

  18. I didn’t know about this film, which is great, and I will share it. But, I am very familiar with Patrick Henry’s speeches. I’ve been telling people that our liberty is in much greater peril now than it was in 1775.
