Liberal Media Moonbats Claim Lady Liberty Is a Muslim

Obama often blathers delusionally about the supposed contribution of Islam to American culture, raving at one point that Muslims built “the very fabric of our nation.” His friends at the Washington Post have finally uncovered what they are passing off as evidence to back him up:

The man who designed the Statue of Liberty once worked on project that would’ve involved a towering Egyptian peasant woman, meaning the iconic New York City monument’s roots can be traced to Islam, according to the Washington Post.

That’s some stretch, even for the Islamophile propagandists who control the “mainstream” media establishment.

“The first draft for what would become the nation’s symbol of welcome to the ‘huddled masses’ was conceived by French sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi not for the Statue of Liberty but for an entirely different project: a lighthouse that would stand at the entrance to the Suez Canal,” writes the Post’s Yanan Wang.

“Bartholdi would carve the likeness of an Egyptian peasant woman holding aloft a torch of freedom. The monument, twice as high as the Sphinx, would guard the waterway’s entrance and perhaps double as a lighthouse. Its name would be Egypt (or Progress) Bringing Light to Asia,” she added, citing the historian Michael B. Oren.

But Muslim societies tending to be economically dysfunctional, that project fell through due to lack of funds.

Bartholdi later met with French abolitionist Edouard Rene de Laboulaye, and suggested that France give the United States a gift to recognize the close of the American Civil War. Drawing from his scrapped plans for the Suez Canal, the French sculptor hit upon an entirely new idea: A towering version of the Roman goddess Libertas.

This is how Wang tied the Statue of Liberty to the idea that it was conceived originally as an Egyptian Muslim.

The Daily Beast actually ran a piece floating the Lady Liberty Is a Muslim canard as an argument for allowing thousands of Islamic “refugees” from the terrorist breeding grounds of Syria to continue colonizing the country.

In their desperation to find anything of a factual nature that would support their ideology, liberals have lost all fear of making fools of themselves.

    And of course they conveniently avoid mentioning that if he HAD made such a statue in Egypt, it would probably have been torn down and destroyed by now by the Muslim “morality police”, for the crime of not having its face covered, and for the thought crime it symbolized of “progress bringing light to Asia” -can’t have that.

    Okay, that is a stretch. I’m surprised someone didn’t lose an arm doing that… because someone who designed a statue of a woman (an Egyptian peasant, not actually necessarily a MUSLIM Egyptian peasant), then a completely different statue of a woman, based on a Roman Goddess (definitely not Muslim). that second statue is Islamic in nature.

    Bloody hell. Next article will be ‘Donald Trump must worship Satan because a black cat once walked along his back fence when he was a kid’.

    I’m surprised liberals still try to stretch the truth.

    They’re so much better at ignoring it altogether.

    In much the same way, Islam contributed to America having a Navy through the Muslim piracy of American vessels.

    If I see something, say something? OK, there is an Islamic Jihad collaborator aiding and abetting ISIS from the Oval Office.
