The initiative to blast Mount Rushmore by the far-lest has been unnoticed, receiving minimal attention. As engraved memorial figures that honor the Founding Fathers of America continue to crumble after countless days of domestic terrorism advancement fueled by the death of George Floyd, we should be alerted.
In South Dakota, Black Hills, where Mount Rushmore rests, might be targetted by the rampaging far-left savages.
Ben Shapiro, a recognized pundit, posted a question Twitter:
“So, when is our woke historical revisionist priesthood going to insist on blowing up Mount Rushmore?”
Kristi Noem, the current Governor of South Dakota, responded:
“Not on my watch.”
Meghan McCain, The View’s conservative co-host, broke her silence by tweeting:
“We’re like one week removed from entire cable news panels debating whether or not we should blow up Mount Rushmore.”
Even if it seems that Meghan McCain and Ben Shapiro’s sentiments were sarcastic and folly, the threat that the domestic-terrorism could spillover Mount Rushmore isn’t too far fetched. Keep in mind that the statues of the Founding Fathers (Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington)— had been marked into the Mountain had either been slated or toppled for removal — peacefully or not — in the U.S in recent days.
Mobs in Portland tarnished statues of Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington over the previous weeks. In New York City, May Bill de Blasio declared over the weekend that the monument of President Theodore Roosevelt would be detached from the facade of the American Museum of Natural History at the museum’s request.
Mobbers had pledged to destroy the Emancipation Memorial in Washington, D.C., which displays President Abraham Lincoln and a freed slave, while Boston is contemplating about removing another statue featuring Lincoln.
Governor Noem said to Fox & Friends that online accounts pose a danger for Mount Rushmore: “This threat to the mountain could remain in place for quite some time,” but vowed, “we’re prepared to be there and be diligent about protecting it.”
The governor posted a portion of her interview with the outlet on Twitter with the message, “The men on Mt. Rushmore helped make America the greatest country in history. They weren’t perfect; nobody is. But we should learn from their example and work together to accomplish their dreams for our country.”
