I trust you don’t need me to convince you that Republicans are the party of White Supremacy. The presence of Bannon in the Fuhrer’s Reich, and decades of innumerable dog whistles should have already done that. However, it’s refreshing to see a journalist expose the bigotry and debunk the bogus claims of Republican racist policy.

The PLAQUE was added later. The POEM was in the U. S. before the statue was. It was written for a campaign to raise funds to build the pedestal. Even though the physical plaque didn't magically come into being right away, the words were always a part of it. I think we need to clarify that, probably not to us, but to Republicans, so they will be less able to call us on their lie which is a half-truth (or maybe a tenth-truth).

Watch Miller twist in the white nationalist wind!  He mangled Jim Acosta’s words trying to give them meaning that was not there.  Fortunately, Acosta is a well spoken and persistent reporter. 

I was going to do a post today about this very incident but partially based on a Think Progress article and partially based on an AlterNet article.  How many times have I said that the US is no longer entitled to claim the Statue of Liberty nor Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus” which is inscribed on a plaque at the entrance!  Emmanuel Macron, the French President, should repossess the Statue of Liberty until such time that the US lives up to The Statue’s ideals!

Drumpf and his cabal are doing to the US what nobody else has been able to do — take the US to the gutter of civilisation.

Resist, Persist and Remove!!!

God, Miller is part of his (dt) gang of liars and thieves.
How disrespectful, and Kudos to Mr. Acosta for standing up to this thug.

Thanks, Tom

"Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor": Trump Admin Attacks Emma Lazarus's Iconic Poem on Statue of Liberty
STORY AUGUST 04, 2017 Video (CC), text includes exchange between Jim Acosta & Stephen Miller. Discussion with Amy Goodman & Esther Schor.

ABOUT EMMA LAZARUS

Emma Lazarus’s most famous poem gave a voice to the Statue of Liberty, but her remarkable story has remained a mystery until now. Drawing upon a cache of personal letters undiscovered until the 1980s, Esther Schor brings this vital woman to life in all her complexity—as a feminist, a Zionist, and a trailblazing Jewish-American writer. Schor argues persuasively for Lazarus’s place in history as an activist and a prophet of the world we all inhabit today. As a stunning rebuke to fear, xenophobia, and isolationism, Lazarus’s life and work are more relevant now than ever before.

ESTHER SCHOR, a poet and professor of English at Princeton University.,

"The New Colossus" is a sonnet that American poet Emma Lazarus (1849–1887) wrote in 1883 to raise money for the construction of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.

Statue of Liberty arrives in New York Harbor - Jun 17, 1885

Unveiled
On October 28, 1886, the statue of "Liberty Enlightening the World" was officially unveiled. The day's wet and foggy weather did not stop some one million New Yorkers from turning out to cheer for The Statue of Liberty. Parades on land and sea honored the Statue while flags and music filled the air and the official dedication took place beneath the colossus "glistening with rain." When it was time for Bartholdi to release the tricolor French flag that veiled Liberty's face, a roar of guns, whistles, and applause sounded.

In 1903, the poem was engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted inside the pedestal's lower level.

Does it really matter that the plaque was added a few years later? Should the discussion be allowed to go there at all?

The sentiment behind the plaque obviously has been a strong one for over a century and shouldn’t depend on what time it was added to the Statue of Liberty, or when the statue was put up for that matter. The discussion should be whether the majority of divided America still are “a special kind of people from every corner of the world, who had a special love for freedom” (to quote another, often reviled, Republican president) who still value those principles and offer them to others.

RESIST & PERSIST!

Yes I believe that republicans are whiter than sheets on flies.. I laughed out loud at the phony outrage by the elitist prig speaking for Trump. Thanks Jim for the master class on the lovely lady liberty. Something to read in the morning. I have discovered the Motto for the Koch republicans in ' Paradise Lost " - Satan introduces himself and says -" It is better to Reign in Hell for eternity than to Serve one day in heaven "- J Milton

Miller is a vampire and a disgusting piece of you know what. But then, the House o f Thieves harbors several of those now. I love that some cities, some states are starting to ignore trump and his minions. We are stronger than them and we shall prevail.

What do you think about Bill Clinton enabling North Korea to develop nuclear weapons? http://www.nytimes.com/1994/10/19/world/clinton-approves-a-plan-to-give-aid-to-north-koreans.html?pagewanted=all

Thanks to all except the Trump apologist. Clinton gave North Korea aid, over time, in return for quitting nuclear development. They did. Then the Bush regime cut off the aid, and North Korea returned to nuclear development.

Mike H, did you post in the wrong thread by mistake? The discussion is about the Statue of Liberty - no connection to Clinton or N Korea.
