And the lunacy from the Left continues.
Monday night, the Democrat Party tweeted out and then deleted, an attack on Mount Rushmore, negatively portraying an upcoming event President Donald Trump is planning ahead of Independence Day at the historic monument to four great American presidents.
“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again,” the Democrats posted on Twitter, with a link to an article in the British newspaper the Guardian, in the now-deleted tweet. “He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore–a region once sacred to tribal communities.”
This is too much. Democrats are now floating outrageous ideas to take Trump down, and they’re just making things up. Trump hasn’t attacked Native Americans at all, but the Democrats said it, and millions of their cult following will believe it.
The two people who don’t allow anything like this to happen without their consent are House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. They are the failed leadership of the Democratic Party, and you should let them know what you think when their party pulls stunts like this.
Folks, these are elected leaders of a major political party who just targeted Mount Rushmore.
The silent majority should start to stand up against these kinds of false slanders against our president. None of that now-deleted tweet is true, which is why they deleted it.
The linked story from the leftist rag, The Guardian quotes Oglala Lakota tribe member Nick Tilsen, the president of the local activist group “NDN Collective,” as calling Mount Rushmore a symbol of “white supremacy.”
“Mount Rushmore is a symbol of white supremacy, of structural racism that’s still alive and well in society today,” Tilsen said, a message the Democrats ran with. The Guardian piece goes on to notice that Tilsen wants to see Mount Rushmore torn down altogether.
So, a Native American radical wants to be woke AF, and the leftist rag The Guardian pushes his nonsense. There’s no white supremacy behind Mount Rushmore. For goodness’ sake, it’s a monument to four beloved presidents. However, among the wicked Left today, it seems that anything “white” is considered white supremacy.
So far, the silent majority has remained silent for a reason. The silent majority is made up of people from all walks of life, from all races and creeds, and everything in between. You don’t see them running around in the streets defending the statues being toppled by radical Marxists, because they don’t do that sort of thing during a PR war, and that’s what we’ve had so far. The violence and looting have been part of the Left’s Public Relations war, and the silent majority is made up of people who have something to lose if they get involved. They have businesses, and mortgages, and kids education funds to contribute to, but make no mistake, once the PR war has ended, and the Marxists continue to push outward into the suburbs, it’s all bets are off, because the silent majority will do anything to defend their children and their homes. It will not be pretty for the Left.
The push from the Democrats to focus on Mount Rushmore comes as leftist activists tear down monuments and statues across the country. However the move by the Democrat Party to place the iconic American mountainside monument to four great American presidents–George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln–in the crosshairs by claiming it represents “white supremacy” when it clearly does not may go too far for some voters in the silent majority.
Several on Twitter had been fast to blast the Democrats for pushing attempts to destroy Mount Rushmore:

Trump is ready to appear on Friday at the historic landmark in South Dakota’s Black Hills. The fireworks celebration at which the president will speak is limited in crowd size to just 7,500 individuals, and tickets were awarded by lottery, according to South Dakota authorities.
Last week, Trump signed an executive order protecting monuments from rioters and others who would try to destroy or topple them down.
“They’re tearing down statues, desecrating monuments, and purging dissenters,” Trump said in a statement along with the executive order. “It’s not the behavior of a peaceful political movement; it’s the behavior of totalitarians and tyrants and people that don’t love our country.”
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, in a recent tweet, stated she would protect Mount Rushmore from radicals who wish to tear it down.
“Not on my watch.”

Noem went further in an interview on Fox and Friends last week, saying that this is now about a “radical rewriting of our history.”

“What my message is, is that this is no longer about equality, this is a radical rewriting of our history, and in South Dakota, we won’t stand for it,” Noem said. “This is a national monument. The more we focus on the flaws of these men that are on our mountain, the less likely we are to recognize the virtues and the lessons we can learn from their lives. So that really is the message that I have for South Dakotans that love this mountain and Mount Rushmore for this country, that recognize what it represents to us, and we will do all that we can to make sure that that message is loud and clear, that we will make sure that Mount Rushmore stays as majestic as it is today.”
