Who knew that Emma Lazarus was the left’s collective ‘funny bone’ and Steven Miller just took a ball peen hammer to it? In any event, it took the powers that be less than 12-hours to coordinate the message that anyone who even KNEW that the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus was added MUCH later and let alone WAS INTENDED TO REPURPOSE MEANING OF THE STATUTE OF LIBERTY* from that of a symbol of liberty to a doormat imprinted with the words “welcome”, is a racist white supremacist fascist.

We are living in wondrous times!

*”Paul Auster wrote that “Bartholdi’s gigantic effigy was originally intended as a monument to the principles of international republicanism, but ‘The New Colossus’ reinvented the statue’s purpose, turning Liberty into a welcoming mother, a symbol of hope to the outcasts and downtrodden of the world.”

*John T. Cunningham wrote that “The Statue of Liberty was not conceived and sculpted as a symbol of immigration, but it quickly became so as immigrant ships passed under the torch and the shining face, heading toward Ellis Island. However, it was [Lazarus’s poem] that permanently stamped on Miss Liberty the role of unofficial greeter of incoming immigrants.”

    The days are gone when Germany’s opinion on democracy and free speech was worth considering.

    If you want to know the true meaning of the Statue of Liberty, just ask Der Spiegel or CNN!
    You’d think the fact that it’s called the Statue of Liberty and not the Welcome Mat for Immigrants would be a clue.

      The poem “The New Colossus” is a later accretion to the statue. It has nothing to do with its original meaning.

      Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
      With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
      Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
      A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
      Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
      Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
      Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
      The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
      “Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
      With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
      I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

      Only 2,700 miles to Wall Drug.

    Maybe it’s time to send the bombers to Berlin again.

    These are glorious times.
    All the pretenders and charlatans are being exposed daily, and with no let up.
    Glorious I tell you!

    • It’s like Christmas everyday.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        It has an intoxicating quality, much like a favorite wine that a good friend has unexpectedly dropped off a case of at your house.
        If you are not careful you will soon be well into your second bottle while saying impertinent things to the neighbors.
        He’s not a great man, and I suspect that he’s not even a good man, but by God he seems to be the perfect man!

    That stupid Lazarus poem needs to be moved to some warehouse of the Smithsonian.

  • LOVE how the left smears Miller for use of the word cosmopolitan their hero Stalin was the first to employ it

    Rootless cosmopolitan (Russian: безродный космополит, bezrodnyi kosmopolit) was a pejorative label used during the anti-Semitic campaign in the Soviet Union after World War II.[1] Cosmopolitans were intellectuals who were accused of expressing pro-Western feelings and lack of patriotism. The term “rootless cosmopolitan” referred to Jewish intellectuals. It was popularized during the campaign in a Pravda article condemning a group of theatrical critics.[2] Joseph Stalin in a 1946 Moscow speech attacked writings in which “the positive Soviet hero is derided and inferior before all things foreign and cosmopolitanism that we all fought against from the time of Lenin, characteristic of the political leftovers, is many times applauded.”[3] In the 21st century the epithet became a weapon used by Vladimir Putin in Russia, and by nationalists in Hungary and Poland.[4]
