Why Democrats Just Deleted This Inflammatory Tweet About Mount Rushmore

(Liberty Bell) – On Monday, the Democratic Party joined the chorus of insanity that is currently sweeping the country in regard to tearing down statues over allegations they represent racism or oppression of some sort, by tweeting out an attack on Mount Rushmore.

This particular assault on the monument comes as President Trump is planning an Independence Day event at the site.

As you might imagine, this is just more liberal hysteria from the Democratic Party looking to influence those in the Black Lives Matter movement to show up at the polls in November and vote left. It’s not likely the Democrats have any real concern for equality or the fight against racism. It’s just one big opportunity for them to politicize.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again,” the Democrats wrote 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.”

The linked story from the Guardian quotes Oglala Lakota tribe member Nick Tilsen, the president of 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 echoed by the Democrat Party’s formal Twitter account.

The Guardian piece goes on to note that Tilsen wants to see Mount Rushmore torn down altogether.

The push from the Democrats to target Mount Rushmore comes as leftist activists tear down monuments and statues around the country. But the move by the Democrat Party to put 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.

Several on Twitter were quick to rip the Democrats for pushing attempts to destroy Mount Rushmore:

What the folks on the left don’t seem to understand is that history teaches us a lot about where we came from, what we need to learn in order to not repeat the mistakes of the past, and that human nature is far more complicated than simply being “good and bad.”

Lots of amazing people who have done wonderful things have also been involved in bad things or disgusting behavior or attitudes at one time or another. That’s because people are fallen creatures. We are not perfect. Our inner lives, our personalities, are a mix of good and bad. Part of our life’s journey is sorting out that particular mess and learning how to be better people.

Erasing history strips away one of the most important tools we have in that grand adventure.

Trump is set 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 people, and tickets were awarded by lottery, according to South Dakota authorities.

Noem addressed it 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.”

Here’s to hoping the American people stand up for truth and defend the right to keep our history preserved in these monuments, warts and all, so that we can understand where we came from and have a clear vision of where we want to go.

  1. This is no long about BLM, this is about the anarchist and marxist that are trying to destroy our Country and our History. The only way to stop them is to vote Republican in November. We have seen what the democrats believe in and the Socialism/Communism that they want to invoke in this Country. They will destroy the Constitution, and take away all our rights and the new police force will be antifa. If you don’t like this Country the way it is, go move to Venezuela, they like Socialists. Soros burn in hell with molach, you filthy,evil, piece of crap!

  2. I am discussed with the Democratic Party. This is from a life long Democrat up to 12 years ago when Obama was elected. Talk about a racist, he is with out a doubt first on the list. These nut case idiots want to destroy our history start with tearing down Obama’s statue if one exists!! The Democratic Party has lost my vote forever and those of most of my family, if not all. Oh! Pelosi stop sending me e-mails begging for donations!!!!!!

  3. HANDS OFF, NO TOUCH NOR TRY TO ENTER THIS SACRED MONUMENT FOR THEY ARE THERE FROM OUR TRUE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY!

  4. Democrats are doing a great job unifying and arming members of the right that never before considered carry. Locally in Florida, In the last 2 weeks 40% of gun sales are to first-time gun owners, registrations for conceal and carry has gone up 400% and 40% of the new gun owners are women ! If you havent walked into a gun store lately you will find empty shelves, very little ammo, and many of the guns you see are sold waiting on 3 days hold. The background check line is so long they just report the next day now. The message has been loud and clear: Don’t trust a senile candidate who favors defunding police while the next teleprompter line is he favors taking away guns while realtime video show a number of violent attacks and random assaults on “Karen”. They will need to swap that meme out for “Annie Oakley” pretty damn soon.

  5. If BLM are the folks responsible for tearing down statues and setting fire to business’s, then I say screw BLM. It makes me very angry and sad to see these radical idiots tearing
    down our historic statues and setting fires and the Democrat mayors will not let the police arrest the crooks. I saw a couple white females standing inches away from a black policeman using the F bomb because they are so uneducated they can’t rant without it. I don’t understand how those police stand there and take that BS from an uneducated idiot.

  6. History is pretty much worthless if people don’t take the time to read it, learn it, and learn from it. The Communist/Democrat Party (Not Democratic at all) needs to at the very least read about WWI & WWII, and how Communism forms and what it does. Read about Mao, Castro, Chavez for starters, because you people are following down the same path. And while you are “learning” Communism, name one single country that has ever been better off for having been run by it. BLM? Don’t even get me started. Only certain black lives matter to that group.

  7. Antifa, BLM, and ANYONE ELSE having any adverse designs concerning Mount Rushmore would be well advised to go blow their Commie shit someplace else where it would be much more appreciated: Beijing, Pyongyang, Hanoi, Havana, maybe even Caracas and Managua! Their 💩 don’t float here in the good oil’ USA 🇺🇸!

  8. Okay …Here’s the deal either we win the Presidency, House, and Senate in November, or we are looking at “prison camps” , gulags” and “re-education centers” in the future…or we fight a civil war.

    • I’m 72 years old and probably wouldn’t survive another civil war, but I would much rather “check out of the net” that way than to die slowly under the conditions imposed by the first three options indicated by quotation marks (“”)!

  9. It is time to become a one party nation; but with the Democratic Socialists crawling out of basements, it has already been accomplished. The Democrats are like a beheaded chicken, dead, but the body running around in chaos, just doesn’t know it yet. Observe the unedited history of WWII, good guys- free nations, bad guys- Facists, [Franco, Mussolini], Nazis [Hitler], Marxist Communist Socialists [Stalin], Empirical [Japan]; now BLM [Marxist], Islamo-Congress [Jihadist World domination] identify as the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.

  10. There isn’t a word in the dictionary that is strong enough to say how vile this new breed of Democrats are. Vile, anti-American, anti-constitution, anti-law and order……I could go on and on. If they take over in November, hold on to your freedoms/money/rights as they are planning to take everyone of those away from us so they can be in total control. Wicked group of people. Our entire future depends on who wins in 2020. If not Trump, we are going to be in a very bad place, especially if you are a conservative. They want us totally gone and as you can see in the news, aren’t past using any violent measures to do so.

    • The Democraps should change the name of highways and bridges in West Virginia from their hero Sen. Robert C. Byrd. They loved this racist piece of shit.

    • Susan, everything you have said here is exactly correct ! If the public wants the vile Democrats in charge of our government, then our country is in deep trouble!
