Laura Ingrahm’s recent racist screed made me all nostalgic for the times when my establishment mother would tell us rebellious teenagers, to love America or leave it,
The America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted on the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like … this is related to both illegal and legal immigration
you know, because we didn’t hold proper American values like America, where all people were created equal and America, the melting pot of the world and America, the land where anyone can have a better life.
I know back in the day, conservative Americans like her couldn’t be openly racist but they meant that only honest white Americans could have those things not those filthy immigrants who only pretended to be white like them Eastern and Southern Europeans.
And that all got me to thinking that nothing expresses the American dream or American values quite like The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus better known as the plaque on the Statue of Liberty.
After reading over that inspiring message, I thought I’d make this here meme to commemorate it and shame those who would deny the immigrants that were all of our forebears. Immigrants made this country what it is today. It is inconceivable that any patriotic American would claim otherwise.
