The irony of spreading a disease brought here by foreigners to which we have no immunity... while celebrating the ethnic cleansing of people who had no immunity to diseases brought here by foreigners...

The GOP is a death cult.

If there is any justice it will wash away the faces of the oppressors too.

They obviously didn't learn anything at the Tulsa rally. Didn't learn at the beaches didn't learn at the boat Gatherings waving flags. Still didn't learn gathering at bars. I guess they think they're going to achieve herd immunity well good luck with that I'm staying home far away from everybody else

We are going to achieve herd immunity.

It will only take 1.1 - 2.2 million deaths to get there.

Aside from a COVID-19 outbreak this event may spark the biggest forest fire in South Dakota history. MAGA

Though there isn't room for his face, there's room for Trump's rump on the back side of Mt Rushmore

Not to worry! the forest fires will burn until local start dropping from COVID. Bodies can then be collected and cremated as the embers start to die down. By then Trump will be far away, and the population of South Dakota reduced to the point where it again becomes a territory, with not enough living persons to hold its status as a state. Enjoy those fireworks!

There's currently no definitive evidence that having antibodies to this virus grants lasting immunity. Let's see how Fall 2021 looks.

I hope they bring shovels to dig their graves there this way they eliminate the chance of going back home to infect their communities and families.

It's a death cult. Death is dancing in the streets of Trumplandia.

130,000 dead Americans. Soon to be 200,000 and there is no end in sight. Fortunately we have plenty of room in America for the Dead. And a nice new wall to contain us in and to protect the rest of the world from us.

Only a member of a death cult would declare out loud that "There are more important things than living."

Yes. I know it is hard to believe.

They actually said that.

Teddy "Little Yellow Monkeys" Roosevelt being on Mt. Rushmore is a slap in the face of every Asian American.

Thomas "I Like Raping My Women Slaves" Jefferson being on Mt. Rushmore is a slap in the face of every black American.

I'm okay with Lincoln and Washington. I'd like to see Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Barack Obama up there also.

"I'm okay with Lincoln and Washington."

In this context, as a monument to ethnic cleansing, I'm not okay with any of it. I'm not sure what to do about it. For starters I would make sure to explain why this thing was built, and what about America it celebrates.

I think most people don't see the oppression of Native Americans as being as big as a problem of the oppression of blacks.

And that's simply because there's ten times more blacks than natives, so it actually is the bigger burden.

But the history of Native Americans is just as bad if not worse.

Cilley and Graves should be on Rushmore.

Blow the bitch up? Are we the Taliban now?

Washington owned slaves. Do we change the names of cities named after him. How about Washington state,do we rename it?

Lincoln waged cruel war on his own people.

All to maintain the abstraction of a United States. I think people are more important than real estate.

In the balance, maybe we should just leave it.

Fifty years from now all the men pictured might be in favor again.

Public opinion is fickle.

I don't recall the Taliban blowing up any of their own monuments to ethnic cleansing.

I didn't know they had any monuments to their own ethnic cleansing. But if they did it would be more within their interests to remove them than Buddhist statues they had no hand in.

"I didn't know they had any monuments to their own ethnic cleansing."

My point exactly.

Mt. Rushmore is a monument to celebrate the ethnic cleansing of Native Americans by the United States.

Blowing it up is nothing at all like blowing up some other culture's religious monument.

Why is it a monument to ethnic cleansing? Who says so? Perhaps it is a monument to western expansion. Maybe not even that. It might just be a sculpture of famous presidents.

It should remain. America is proud of our great men. They were not perfect, who is? You?

A distinction without a difference.

"Maybe not even that. It might just be a sculpture of famous presidents."

Your Know-Nothing willful ignorance is showing.

Trump Jr. and his girlfriend will be distancing from the 4th festivities, because Jr's girlfriend has contracted the Rona.

"Guilfoyle had travelled to be with Trump as he gave a high-profile speech in South Dakota but did not attend the event after getting the positive test result, the New York Times reported. She had not been in recent proximity to the president and Donald Trump Jnr tested negative, the paper said."

ABC News reported that Guilfoyle was asymptomatic.
