The Woke Mob Targets Mt. Rushmore

Lady Liberty is next

It was always inevitable that The Woke Mob would go after the Crown Jewel of American History: Mount Rushmore.

And so it goes:

Manifest Destiny has a long, sinister history that some say lives on today as “American exceptionalism.”

Three decades after Wounded Knee, in 1923, a South Dakota tourism agent advanced an idea for several large sculptures in the Black Hills. He enlisted the support of the renowned Gutzon Borglum, whose most recent work had been carving Stone Mountain, Ga., a grand gathering site for a white supremacist group Borglum belonged to, the Ku Klux Klan.

At Mount Rushmore, you may learn that the sculptures are arranged for maximum sun exposure, itself a cruel irony: The faces of the four presidents (white conquerors) peer southeast toward a reservation housing vanquished Lakota, who mostly live out forgotten, impoverished lives in the shadow of their sacred Paha Sapa that, legally, still belong to them.

Within that dark shadow is Wounded Knee.

Thank God for South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem:

This raises the question of whether or not the rioters will target one of America’s most iconic monuments — Mount Rushmore.

“So, when is our woke historical revisionist priesthood going to insist on blowing up Mount Rushmore?” best-selling author Ben Shapiro mused on Twitter.

Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) powerfully shot down the idea. “Not on my watch,” she tweeted.

Mount Rushmore is a national treasure, and Kristi Noem deserves credit for standing up for this iconic monument.

I’ll wager that there will be an attempt to deface Mount Rushmore come this July 4th.

It’s a target rich environment and there are multiple Taliban-style ways to have at it.

Always the contrarian, Doomberg disagrees.

He says The Statue of Liberty will be target #1.

Pretty sad bingo cards regardless…

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
