MichiganWave: Ryan got his start working for Jack Kemp in the early 90s, attacking Pete Wilson, Prop187, and shilling for an Emma Lazarus vision of America. Incredibly and most ominously, he started his political career fighting to keep Govt benefits flowing to Illegal Aliens

MichiganWave: So other than being a win for federalism, it's not clear that this is culturally significant yet. Esp since much of the Right to Life political lobby is/was also Globalist, Blank Slate, and rather Emma Lazarus-esque in its worldview. They certainly back stabbed Steve King.

larrynbaker: Is the US suffering from “systemic racism”? Why are so many people of color streaming into this country? Did the Biden administration misunderstand Emma Lazarus' “Give me your tired, your poor…” on the Statue of Liberty? Those people were coming through Ellis island legally.

AR_Vishny: Like the way I live and relate to my Jewish identity tells you little about the life of the Ba'al Shem Tov, and the way Emma Lazarus lived tells you little about Yehoram Gaon, and tbh the way I live looks much more like the life of Emma Lazarus than that of my own ancestors
