First there’s this reference to the “Statute” of Liberty in a tweet:
We’ll highlight the beauty of legal immigrants’ work ethic and love of freedom while visiting Ellis Island & Statute of Liberty today.
And then there’s these fine examples of mush-mouthed inanity, courtesy of Bob Cesca:
“This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries. Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies,” Palin said to cheers from the crowd.
“Lady Liberty is the symbol of unity and friendship we have with other freedom-loving nations. It’s also a “warning” of sorts, as France encouraged us to keep democracy alive as the recipient of this gift… basically telling us not to blow it. Thank you for this reminder, France!”
The Statute of Livertreats was a warning all along? Who the hell knew? I thought it was an offer to take the castoffs and downtrodden from other countries, people “yearning to breathe free”.
