We all have to listen to and read the absurdity of the anti-liberty left (all of it) admonishing Americans that no exception exists on the Statue of Liberty for muslim savages.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” She isn’t asking for the poor. She is asking for those who want freedom: “yearning to breathe free” is the subject of the sentence.
Lady Liberty is not interested in only the poor, but only in those poor who want to be free… The quote is about the freedom. An accurate re-statement would be ‘don’t give me those not yearning for freedom.’
Do muslims want to “breathe free?” What do they say?
According to a poll done this summer by the Center for Security Policy, 51% of US muslims want sharia, and 25% of US muslims are OK with violence against Americans. Sharia and freedom are incompatible. Violence against Americans just for BEING Americans is the opposite of freedom and liberty.
Rejecting freedom, liberty and democracy means the Lady Liberty quote just does not apply.
As they have no desire for freedom, they have no place here.
As usual when discussing liberty and freedom, the left is wrong.
