The darkening of ‘Lady Liberty’

15 Jan

Because she’s been too white, doncha know

The US Mint and Treasury will for the first time issue a commemorative coin depicting Lady Liberty as a black woman.

The coin commemorates the Mint’s 225th anniversary and shows Liberty with a crown of stars and a toga-like dress.

The 24-carat coin will weigh 28g (1oz) and have a face value of $100 (£80).

The US Mint says it plans to issue further coins depicting Liberty as women from ethnic minorities, such as Asian, Hispanic or Indian Americans.

But such cisheteronormativity; when will Lady Liberty be Ladyboy Liberty? 😉

      Never heard that word ‘sheboon’ before; made me laugh. 🙂

    Genocide involves:

    The destruction of or attacks on cultural and religious property and symbols of the targeted group that may be designed to annihilate the historic presence of the group or groups.

    This is just one of endless examples of this continuous attempt to dispossession. Here is Canada they want a black woman on the 10 dollar bill. If it wasn’t so malevolent it would be laughable.

    White Genocide is a crime, not a policy option.

    Is it really plausible that the leaders of dozens of White nations have adopted similar policies antithetical to the long-term survival of their own peoples, yet none of them knew what they are doing?

      They know what they’re doing; they hate their own, and wish to replace them with others.

    This is absurd, if it’s really true. And she looks like an angry woman, to boot.

      Well, I trust that the BBC, notwithstanding its hard left bias, tends to get the basic facts correct when they’re reporting the news. One can of course always check other news sources, to see if they concur.

        One could, I suppose.

    Perhaps those who collect gold may find these degenerate pieces of bullion at discount after sales are found to be less than expected. Pirates gold makes fine ingots from a furnace.

      Nobody used the Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea dollar coins, so they decided to try it with collectible gold coins. We’ll see how that goes…

    “Lady Liberty?”

    Nope, waaaaaaay too white. Should be “Deh Liberty Bitch!”

    What a perfect symbol of the spiritual, moral, political, and social cesspool this once-great country has become. Here are some other suggestions for changes to symbols and mottos far more appropriate to today’s America, one that bears no resemblance whatsoever to the nation of the founding:

    OLD/NEW:

    – “In God We Trust” / “Whatever…” or “Fuck You!”
    – “The Star-Spangled Banner” / “This Land is Your Land” or “This is the End” (The Doors)
    – The Amercan Bald Eagle / The Turkey Vulture
    – Old Glory / The Rainbow Flag
    – E Pluribus Unum / “Dis Country Be Rayyyyyyyycissssss!”
    – Thanksgiving Day / Gibsmedat! Marches (Million Welfare Recipient Marches)
    – George Washington / Caesar Chavez, Al Sharpton, and Hillary Clinton
    – The Spirit of ’76 / The Malaise of ’16

    I’m sure there are more, but you get the point.

      I actually think Benjamin Franklin’s championing of the turkey as America’s national bird symbol would have been perfect: you could have two versions: the wild turkey as actual symbol, a proud, noble creature, and the domestic turkey, a fat, waddling, helpless beast, could stand in for 21st century fat Americans, ripe for the slaughter! 😉

      (I know, you said turkey vulture, but it reminded me of Franklin’s quest to have the turkey as America’s national bird.)
