do you all really think the FRENCH, who gave us the statue BACK THEN were thinking in the broad strokes you all are now?
and do you really thing BETO got his 'take' right? or was just working to pander to his base and do a bit of 'race-baiting' all his own?

when you ask 'I wonder why he would say that?' are you including Beto? or just your hated GOP folks?

this emma lazarus?

There are several phrases associated with the Statue of Liberty, but the most recognizable is “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This quote comes from Emma Lazarus’ sonnet, New Colossus, which she wrote for a fundraiser auction to raise money for the pedestal upon which the Statue of Liberty now sits. The poem did not receive much recognition and was quite forgotten after the auction.

In the early 1900s and after Lazarus’ death, one of her friends began a campaign to memorialize Lazarus and her New Colossus sonnet. The effort was a success, and a plaque with the poem’s text was mounted inside the pedestal of the statue.


think I shall stand firm on my post willie.
