[TriggerWarning: AltRight Troll] Statue of Liberty was originally Muslim woman

Subhead: "Lady Liberty was also originally meant to wear hijab."

French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi's statue was initially intended for Egypt's Suez Canal -- and was supposed to represent a liberated (Egyptian) female slave.

As pointed out by The Daily Beast’s Michael Daly in an op-ed, the statue itself was originally intended to represent a female Egyptian peasant as a Colossus of Rhodes for the Industrial Age.

Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, the French designer of the statue, was inspired by Egyptian peasant women.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Note that it DOES NOT say "Give me your hired al-Qaeda mercenary goatfuckers, the traitors who interpreted the screams of their tortured countrymen in some CACI-manned CIA owned dungeon"
