President Donald Trump will be celebrating the Fourth of July with a visit to Mount Rushmore the day before.
So now the things you couldn’t imagine even being attacked are being attacked.
Lo and behold, suddenly there’s been all kinds of crazy demonization of Mount Rushmore. Let’s just leave out both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have visited it and it’s one of the country’s greatest monuments, honoring some of America’s greatest presidents.
Suddenly it’s the symbol of evil in the modern world, according to Democrats in a crazy DNC tweet, as we reported.
Now showing that there’s no coordination at all, no siree, none, the New York Times is coming after Mount Rushmore.
From Fox News:
Along with the criticisms George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt have faced in recent weeks, the Times reported the condemnation from Native Americans since the monument was built on indigenous land. It also noted how the sculptor Gutzon Borglum had “strong bonds with leaders of the Ku Klux Klan” and has a documented history of espousing white supremacist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
But it was their tweet promoting the article that really raised eyebrows.
Mount Rushmore was built on land that belonged to the Lakota tribe and sculpted by a man who had strong bonds with the Ku Klux Klan. It features the faces of 2 U.S. presidents who were slaveholders.https://t.co/pHmJScnYbb

Americans let them have it, but good.
FUN FACT: The Lakota were from the Minnesota region. They didn’t move into the Dakotas until the 1700s. When they did move, they pushed out the weaker tribes who were already there.
History is fun. I’m glad I know it. And not just the “acceptable” parts. https://t.co/G8LggHqW6w

Now, the woke mob at the New York Times is coming after Mount Rushmore.

Maybe the NY Times needs to have a little introspection about their own crimes?
The New York Times building is located on land the Dutch colonists swindled from the native population
They must abandon their stolen land and donate the proceeds to BLM https://t.co/X5ddAyzmb6

Interesting the @nytimes failed to mention Mount Rushmore’s “complicated legacy” of racism when Obama visited, or when Maureen Dowd pondered whether Obama would one day be “a Mount Rushmore President” https://t.co/n61Jkc0J5l

Gee, wonder why the difference now? Funny how that works.
Seriously, no one and nothing is our history is safe from the mob at this point.
