Seems pretty straight forward to me.

The IOC said that no item worn or used by a team may feature "the wording or lyrics from national anthems, motivational words, public/political messaging or slogans related to national identity."

What is does the statue of liberty have to say?

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore

Yeah, I think we have made it very farking clear that has nothing to do with our national identity anymore.  And apparently the IOC agreed.

That is a fantastic comparison. Opening up your country to immigrants is exactly equivalent to opening up your home to someone. No one can argue with that. Great job. Super well done. William F. Buckley would be proud of how you destroyed the libs.

Sovereign rights to your property...a country has the same.

So tell me, do you lock your car at night...lock your front door?  Why? if people should be able to better themselves...why do you feel the need to restrict people from access to your property?

Repeating the same bad argument twice does not improve it.

The United States is not your property or mine. It is the collective property of all citizens. So you are free to argue that you don't want immigrants for any reason you choose, but comparing immigration to not letting people move into your house is disingenuous bullshiat, and a known white supremacist tactic. A better argument is "Do you want to allow homeless people in this public park?"

Anyway, you are arguing in bad faith, so I won't respond again. But feel free to add some more Stormfront copypasta.

No, I actually happily pay taxes and provide services to support immigrants from other countries.  I mean, the statue doesn't say "do whatever the fark immigrants demand."  You know that, right?  Oh you don't... so you are a complete dumbass,Shocking[with weird capitalization].

I'm not arguing in bad faith.     The USA belongs to the citizens of the us.  Not you, not me.    We take in a ton of LEGAL immigrants each year, simple because people want to be here doesn't entitle them to be here.

If someone wants to live in your house, why stop them?   It likely is a nice house...surely better than living on the street.

Oh, so when it directly impacts you, you don't like it...but when it doesn't directly impact you...you are cool with it.

Gotcha.

So since Americans lock their doors at night, then America must stop immigrants from coming in.

In Trumpworld, this makes perfect sense.

In reality, the poem underneath the statue of liberty is a lie. We don't want the poor, huddled masses. We want the wealthy and/or educated. We want the white-skinned Christians.
