"Who cares about crooked George, I prefer Generals who don't lose New York City to the British"
From the [Declaration of Independence](http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/document/
), upon why King George III is a tyrant:
>He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither,
From George Washington to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp, 28 May 1788:
>I had always hoped that this land might become a safe & agreeable Asylum to the virtuous & persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong...
>You may rest assured, Sir, of my best & most friendly sentiments of your suffering compatriots, and that, while I deplore the calamities to which many of the most worthy members of your Community have been reduced by the late foreign interposition in the interior affairs of the United Netherlands; I shall flatter myself that many of them will be able with the wrecks of their fortunes which may have escaped the extensive devastation, to settle themselves in comfort, freedom and ease in some corner of the vast regions of America.
>The spirit of the Religions and the genius of the political Institutions of this Country must be an inducement. Under a good government (which I have no doubt we shall establish) this Country certainly promises greater advantages, than almost any other, to persons of [limited]* property, who are determined to be sober, industrious & virtuous members of Society.
>And it must not be concealed, that a knowledge that these are the general characteristics of your compatriots would be a principal reason to consider their advent as a valuable acquisition to our infant settlements. If you should meet with as favorable circumstances, as I hope will attend your first operations; I think it probable that your coming will be the harbinger for many more to adventure across the Atlantic.
*Substituted “limited” for “moderate,” which retains the original meaning according to the 1828 Websters Dictionary.
It shouldn't matter if you're from a shithole country. As long as you're not a shithole person you should be allowed to come.
Weird how many trump fans hate George Washington.
Hey, /u/UkraineRussianRebel. I see you deleted that comment below where you said you're a paid troll. [Don't worry, I screengrabbed it here for you.](https://imgur.com/a/8EteJ
GW's buddy A. Ham came from what Trump would probably call a shithole country too.
Imagine missing the point this badly.

Neoliberal? Is this like a sub for like cyberpunk liberals with like neon light on their outfits?
Everyone knows George Washington was an out of touch elitest anyway!
As an immigrant I’m glad there’s at least one subreddit where I’m enthusiastically welcome.
We don't want them to take our jobs unless they are rich, educated and white.
That feel when MAGA turds would call George Washington a cuck nowadays.
