Lady Liberty Joins the “Me Too” Movement

When he who shall remain nameless as well as brainless heard there was actually a poetic plea attached to the Statue of Liberty which welcomed poor people of all races to our shores … he was shocked and revolted.

So our pea brained Imposter President immediately ordered his newest Acting-Whatever … Ken Cuccinelli … his latest WWWHWSA … West Wing White House White Supremacy Advisor … to cleanse the poem and rewrite history.

Responding as only the newest West Wing lap dog could … “Cucch” promptly teamed up with Herr Stephen Miller … aka the Exalted Cyclops of the local White House Klan …  who also serves in the capacity of the “White House White Supremacy Laureate.”

Their goal?

To rewrite the world renown Emma Lazarus poetry, “The New Colossus” creating … “The Newer Colossus.”


Lazarus’ original work …

The New Colossus

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land,

Here at our sea-washed, sun-set 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 Newer Colossus

“Like a brazen giant of Nordic shame,

With PED enhanced limbs stretched from land to land,

Here at the polluted Hudson, behind locked gates shall stand,

An orange-tanned white male with a torch, whose flame shines

From his coiffed comb-over, and his name is Grand

Perpetrator of White Supremacy.  From his beacon-hand

Burns hate, fear, and contempt, his beady eyes defend

The oil-slicked harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries he

With pouty lips.  Give me your Danes, your Swedes,

Your Norwegian masses yearning to be Americans free

To hate wretched Browns and Blacks on our teeming shores.

So send the shapely-assed, the hugely-breasted,

I’ll fondle their “nethers” behind my golden doors.”


It could be worse … but I don’t know how.

Just sayin’ …

  1. And yet it came as a surprise to ‘he who shall not be named’ that the people of Greenland DIDN’T cotton to his desire to BUY them…and their country. Go figure!

    • Thanks for reading and commenting, TeeL …

      I think ’45 was looking for a real estate RELO project for Lady Liberty … he was thinking I have a perfect out-of-the-way island for that tacky old broad … somewhere off the beaten track … then I’ll fill the Hudson with a Gold Trump holding a “No Trespassing ” sign in one hand and a “Get Out & Keep Out” sign in the other!

      Hey … he has the G7 to wreck this week … I can’t wait to see what he feeds the G7 next year when we host the meeting … probably the new Popeye’s crispy chicken sandwich! Nope … too “Black” … he’ll go with the Christian Chicken Sandwich … Chick-Fil-A.

      What a clown …

  2. Thanks. I had forgotten how beautiful the whole Lazarus poem is. Clever translation, my boy. Newland

    • Hi Jim … Thanks for reading and commenting … I had not read the entire poem until now … of course we all knew about “send me your tired ….” What a surprise when I read it all. Plus I really enjoyed learning a bit about her as I scrolled thru Dr. Google info.

      I’m sure the fact that she was Jewish was a factor in the Trumpian gang going after her and “man-splaining” what she really meant when she wrote the poem.

      Cuccinelli & Miller … two guys barely literate interpreting her poem. Doesn’t get anymore “swampy” than that.

  3. That lizard-like creature from the swamp Stephan Miller.

    Send him back.

    Who would have him?

    Perhaps his Alma Mater Duke those rivals of my UNC school b’ball team

    • Hi Maggie … Miller really is a “lizardy life form” … I’m sure there are folks at Duke who would love to take back his diploma … I was hoping that Steve Bannon would take Miller with him when he left Trump … but even he was smart enough to recognize Miller’s a crazy guy!

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

    • Hi Marian … thanks for for reading and commenting … i did get a bee in my bonnet over this pile of crap that the Trumpians pulled … Miller’s bad on his own … he doesn’t need Cuccinelli as a partner in racial slur-isms.

      I also was truly inspired when I went to Dr. Google for Emma Lazarus info … we’re all familiar with the “send me….” line(s) in her poem … put to read the piece in it’s entirety was an eye opener for me.

      She probably tossed and turned a bit in her grave reading my rendition … but I think she died a second death having to hear Miller & Cuccinelli offer their opinions on her work.

      I appreciate your support …
