If Mt. Rushmore is on your bucket list, better visit soon. From Simon Black at sovereignman.com:
After having visited 120+ countries on all seven continents, and dozens of states across the US, it’s a pretty rare event these days that I travel somewhere I’ve never been before.
I’m pretty weak in the South Pacific—I’ve never been to Tahiti or Bora Bora… nor central Africa, like the Democratic Republic of Congo.
But most of the rest of the world I have covered.
One blank spot on my US travel map was South Dakota… until yesterday afternoon.
I knew back in July that I would have to make a trip… primarily to see Mount Rushmore before the Bolsheviks cancel it.
Sadly I’m only half-kidding.
I almost never watch TV anymore. But I happened to be flipping through channels on the afternoon of Friday, July 3rd and saw a reporter from the Communist News Network describing Mount Rushmore as “a monument of two slave owners on land wrestled away from Native Americans.”
And that pretty well sums up the national hysteria right now.
(Meanwhile, on the right side of the screen, CNN had its real-time Covid statistics to continue stoking fear and paranoia. And that single clip tells you everything you need to know about mainstream media.)
Then, just this week in Washington DC, the local government released a report of 153 properties across the city—schools, parks, monuments– that should be renamed because they’re presently named after a “person of concern.”
The report was authored by a special committee established by Washington DC’s mayor, which was tasked with identifying monuments that have “disqualifying histories”.
This includes people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and dozens of others.
The findings are so absurd that the DC committee even recommended to “remove, relocate, or contextualize” the Washington Monument.
