New York Times is finally showing how un-American they really are…What really raised an eyebrow about their Mount Rushmore piece is how they tweeted about it. Their tweet, along with the attached article, said the following: “Mount Rushmore was built on land that belonged to the Lakota tribe and sculpted by a man who had strong bonds with the Ku Klux Klan. It features the faces of 2 U.S presidents who were slaveholders.
Many people responded to the headline fact-checking that this…is actually false. As people reported, the Lakota were from the Minnesota region. They didn’t move into the Dakotas until the 1700s. When they did move, they pushed out the weaker tribes who were already there. History is fun when you know ALL of the facts. I’m sure NY Times will just keep identifying as the “woke police” though. Interesting too when Obama visited and wanted to be known as a “Mount Rushmore President” someday that none of the media platforms preached Rushmore’s “complicated legacy” of racism then. If you give some liberals an inch, they’ll take a mile.
If we want to get technical about everything historical on American soil then it’s also friendly to point out that the New York Times building is located on land the Dutch Colonists swindled from the native population. So obviously the NY Times should abandon their stolen land and donate the proceeds to the Black Lives Matter movement too.
In the Mount Rushmore article, the Times criticized George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Theodore Roosevelt. They reported the condemnation from Native Americans since the monument was built and documented the sculptors of white supremacy and anti-Semitic rhetoric. I’m waiting for their next piece when they start calling for the dynamiting of Mount Rushmore.
The intense backlash over this article argued that this national monument is just their latest target. President Trump will also be celebrating the Fourth of July with a visit to Mount Rushmore the day before. Because of this, the DNC was under fire for linking Trump’s upcoming event to “glorifying white supremacy.” Shocker.
“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and time again. 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,” one Democrat on Twitter wrote. The tweet was later deleted amid backlash.
It seems like that no one is safe from the liberal mob this time. Next week it’ll be another national monument under attack or another preposterous and violent proposal. If the NY Times is going to dig deep into history they have also failed to mention that ‘New York’ is named after a man who held slaves and shipped 90,000 human beings to the states. The newspaper also aided Stalin in murdering millions of Jewish people and Ukrainians.
Maybe it’s time for the NY Times to be cancelled next?
