Fashioned after is not the same as a copy of.
Besides dumbass she's wearing a toga.


"The Statue of Liberty, the most famous symbolic statue of a woman, was modeled after Marie Bartholdi, the sculptor's mother."
Who was the model for the Statue of Liberty?
Thanks from waitingtables

And she is fashioned in the manner of a neoclassical Roman goddess.

It was for Port Said in Egypt. Egypt could not afford it after the Civil War ended because they were getting rich from Egyptian cotton during the Civil War. After the war ended, that market dried up for Egypt.

It's pitiful. Reading Jimmy's posts is like listening to Conway or Spicer lying through their teeth. It's become the right-wing way, the way of creating chaos, of alternative facts..
Thanks from waitingtables, RNG and Daws77

The concept was floated to the Egyptians who rejected it.

The statue that is the Statue of Liberty was built to be the Statue of Liberty.

The Statue of Liberty was orginally intended to represent Egypt and was dressed as an Egyptian peasant.

That is exactly what his posts are and always have been here. He is the same vein as the white nationalists. That was clear to me ages ago. You're spot on.

Oh and here is Thomas Paine's poem, that references the goddess Libertas and how other nations would see us as a beacon of freedom, to paraphrase him.

Quote:
In a chariot of light, from the regions of the day,
The Goddess of Liberty came,
Ten thousand celestials directed her way,
And hither conducted the dame.
A fair budding branch from the gardens above,
Where millions with millions agree,
She brought in her hand as a pledge of her love,
And the plant she named Liberty Tree.

The celestial exotic stuck deep in the ground,
Like a native it flourished and bore;
The fame of its fruit drew the nations around,
To seek out this peaceable shore.
Unmindful of names or distinctions they came,
For freemen like brothers agree;
With one spirit endued, they one friendship pursued,
And their temple was Liberty Tree.

Beneath this fair tree, like the patriarchs of old,
Their bread in contentment they ate,
Unvexed with the troubles of silver or gold,
The cares of the grand and the great.
With timber and tar they Old England supplied,
And supported her power on the sea;
Her battles they fought, without getting a groat,
For the honor of Liberty Tree.

But hear, O ye swains (’tis a tale most profane),
How all the tyrannical powers,
Kings, Commons and Lords, are uniting amain
To cut down this guardian of ours.
From the East to the West blow the trumpet to arms,
Thro’ the land let the sound of it flee;
Let the far and the near all unite with a cheer,
In defense of our Liberty Tree
