I went to Mount Rushmore… before the Bolsheviks cancel it, by Simon Black

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.

Trump Gives History Lesson, Slams ‘Left-Wing Cultural Revolution’ In Mount Rushmore Address, by Tyler Durden

At least one politician is willing to stand up and defend the public monuments he’s charged with defending. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

President Trump kicked off Independence Day weekend on Friday by delivering a fiery address in front of Mount Rushmore – a site undoubtedly chosen as left-wing protesters shift focus from removing confederate statues to destroying monuments of US presidents.

Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities,” said Trump – who added “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. Not gonna happen to us.”

Make no mistake, this left wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American revolution,” Trump told the crowd of more than 7,000. “Our children are taught in school to hate their own country.”

Trump then announced that under an Executive Order signed last week, “people who damage or deface federal statues or monuments will get a minimum of 10 years in prison.”
