A group of unknown activists just trolled Republican President Trump in a beautiful way.
Tourists sailing around the Statue of Liberty earlier today were greeted with this sight:
It’s a sharp reminder of what the Statue of Liberty represents to millions of people around the world, what the United States once represented – a beacon of hope and opportunity where anyone, no matter their race, religion, or origin.
As President Trump prepares the second version of his unconstitutional and un-American Muslim immigration ban and sends out deportation squads to tear families apart in his efforts to impose a white supremacist agenda, we must hold the words of Lady Liberty in our hearts and steel ourselves for the coming storm.
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!”
