A brief excerpt from Wikipedia on the Statue:
The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbor, in Manhattan, New York City. The statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886, was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.
This last sentence is worth paying more attention too, the Statue of Liberty was not supposed to be a “welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.” This false idea is what the Statue has falsely come to represent, ie that America supposedly welcomes ALL immigrants.
When the Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, the ceremonial speeches had nothing to do with immigrants arriving in America. And the sculptor who created the enormous statue, Fredric-Auguste Bartholdi, did not connect the statue with immigration. The whole myth surrounding the Statue and immigration arises from a poem written in 1883 called the ‘New Colossus’ written by Emma Lazarus, a Jewish immigrant.
In 1901, Lazarus’s friend Georgina Schuyler began an effort to memorialize Lazarus and her poem, which succeeded in 1903 when a plaque bearing the text of the poem was mounted on the inner wall of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty.
The poem, which is emblazoned on a plaque inside the Statue has the following words:
“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!”
The original manuscript is held by the American Jewish Historical Society.
This poem has come to falsely represent the myth that America is a nation that should open its arms to the world and its people, and that the once 90% European majority who built America, should not oppose it.
Drew Smith, an elderly New Orleans attorney who had authored ‘The Legacy of the Melting Pot’, once said:
“Whose interest could have been served in having America flooded with ‘wretched refuse’? It was in the perceived interest of a cohesive people who use racial solidarity like a weapon, a weapon they want only for themselves. The efforts to change the American immigration law and ultimately displace the European majority has been led almost exclusively by Jews.”
Emma Lazarus was typical of your diaspora Jew, she advocated and pushed for ‘racial diversity’ in America as they do across the West, but who also wanted an exclusively Jewish state in Palestine for Jews.
‘The beautiful jade-colored colossus (Statue of Liberty) had no original connection with immigration and predated the Ellis Island immigration center. It was a gift from France to commemorate the American Revolution, not to honor the arrival of “wretched refuse” on America’s shores. It is instructive to note that this beautiful statue of European Womanhood faces not to Africa, Asia or South America, but the land where she was born, France and Europe itself.’
