How long before they get around to Mount Rushmore?

America is being dismantled before our eyes. First the Confederate memorials, now this.

It WILL continue, as long as the monuments are taken down at every whim and perceived slight.
This will be the first monument to an American president to be removed, and there is movement in Oklahoma to remove more monuments to those who offend Native Americans.

A counter to the movement in Oklahoma is to trade the removal of a gaming licence on an Indian reservation for each memorial that they insist on being removed.

Sounds like a fair trade to me. When the casino gravy train dries up, maybe the angst, and faux rage will subside too.

Any thoughts on the question about Mt. Rushmore?

Every few years, a radical group of NA in South Dakota stages a fake outrage demonstration concerning the national monument.

How many here have seen it, and understand that, even though it was constructed on former native american ground, it transcends any and all arguments against it's existence?

The night lighting ceremony is near a spiritual experience, that goes far beyond the mere illumination of the Monument. A person who did not acknowledge it's location, how it came to existence, and the sacrifice of the natives, would be a shallow thinker indeed.

An American Indian wrote a book about Mt. Rushmore. Not particularly about taking it down, but about the white racist beliefs of the guy that created it Gutzon Borglum. First he started on Stone Mountain, Ga. which is about confederate heroes. And of course Mt. Rushmore is in a sacred place to the Souix. I'll find the title and post it.

I've read several articles and dissertations concerning Borglum and his beliefs.

The monument was/is a spectacular work of art that honors Presidents of note, and has no basis in racism per se.

The beliefs of the artist should not be projected on to their works, unless the racism is displayed in their work.

I'm sick of all of the groups crawling out of the woodwork who are offended about something.

If they keep up with their bullshit, every goddamned street, bridge, and public school In America will be named after MLK, Malcom X, and Rosa Parks. They need to give it a fucking rest already.
The communist subversives aka Social Justice Warriors are the ones wanting to erase history and rewrite it. You are already beginning to see that happen with the gradual black washing of European History and the phony claims that Britain during Roman times was predominantly black when it was not. A handful of blacks in Roman Britain doesn't make them the majority population but you can't tell the anti-white Social Justice Warriors that run the BBC that.

They always start out with that statue or painting offends me take it down and when you give these commies an inch they take a mile.

why do you troll for people to comment on your post, when you are close-minded know-it-all that just wants to rant in response?

You don't know shit.

don't be asking for people's thoughts if you don't actually want hear them, a-hole.
can somebody explain to me why we let these nutjob minority leftist groups do this or run things sometimes in this country? Can somebody help me understand just why the fuck we let this stuff happen just...gladly lay down and that's it?

Help me understand. Thanks
