"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!"
"Give me your gold, your ore,
Your crumpled banknotes, transfer funds to me,
Confine the needy to their shithole shores,
Send Swedes, Norwegians, Germans, Scots to me,
I live in Trump Tower, with a bunch of whores."
This is the America I'm proud of.
For those who don't know, this is entitled "The New Colossus" and is engraved on a plaque on the Statue of Liberty.
i tend to dislike people who aren't like me
That’s your problem. Full Stop.
Please, for you, figure out why.
Nice job fulfilling the stereotype of the ignorant American.
Hey just wanna drop this right here.
A bunch of my people came here from a "shithole country" and built that Williamsburg Bridge that Donald Motherfucking Trump took his fat orange ass across to get from his home borough of Queens into that dumpy-ass skyscraper made of illegally imported Chinese steel he put up on 5th Avenue to meet with the Russians in.
So that con artist shitstain can close his shithole mouth and swim his two-scoop ass back across the East River and I better not see his dentures biting into any slices of New York pizza and he better not be petting any bodega cats.
That is all.
Her ancestry makes the poem even more poweful. Emma Lazarus family was among the 24 Jewish refugees who arrived in what was then New Amsterdam in 1654, the first Jewish Americans. The governor Peter Stuyvesant refused to let them in citing trump like arguments. The west india company over ruled him. She was also writing in response to the Russian Pogroms.
I'm not American but this right here is the America I want to see and know. It fills me with pride.
Sorry from Norway.
