Bedloe’s Island

February 1, 2017

The progressive democrats and the main stream media are once again trying to revise history of this nation, this time they are trying to revise what the statue of Lady Liberty actually stands for. Below will be a history lesson to counter the lies the media and the progressive democrats are trying to revise.

The work started on the statue in 1870 where the french govt and the french people would fund the building of the statue while the United States at that time would fund and build the pedestal that Lady Liberty would be placed upon.

The french artist Bartholdi, had specifically chosen what everything on lady liberty was to represent. The crown and the seven spires or rays represented the sun, the seven seas, and the seven continents, to enlighten the world in addition to the torch.

The broken chains at the feet of lady liberty represents freedom and democracy, the tablet in her one arm and hand represent the book evoking the law and the year of the United States independence. The torch symbolizes freedom, hope and the future. The torch was meant to imply that at night, lady liberty’s light would guide those seeking freedom at night.

The poem that senator schummer and Nancy pelosi were repeating and it didnt help with the ignorance of chuck todd asking pelosi what the Statue of Liberty pin is for and its a total lie.

Emma Lazarus was a refugee advocate in the late 1800’s and was asked in 1883 to write a poem that would be auctioned off to raise funds for the pedestal to be built to hold lady liberty. The poem is in no way connected to the Statue of Liberty it was cast in bronze and sits in the main room of the pedestal foundation, by no means has it ever been part of Lady Liberty which was given as a gift from France as a gift to signify an alliance and friendship between the two countries. Her poem was cast in bronze in 1903 and placed in the main room of the pedestal, 17 years after the statue had been fully erected and dedicated.

On October 28th, 1886 lady liberty had been fully reassembled on the pedestal on bedloe’s island which was then renamed Liberty Island in 1956 and 1.1 miles separate liberty island and Ellis island.

Its a total sham what the progressive democrats are doing in trying to revise history and the true meaning of Lady Liberty.
