Minnesota Star Tribune Editorial Paints Mt. Rushmore as Monument to White Supremacy

Legal Insurrection

The first out of this nasty gate is The Minnesota Star Tribune, which just posted an opinion piece that portrays Mt. Rushmore as a monument to white supremacy.

The editorial, penned by Ron Way (a former official of the U.S. Interior Department and its National Park Service) even features the KKK!

But the back story of Mount Rushmore is hardly a rich history of a shared democratic ideal. Some see the monument in the Black Hills as one of the spoils of violent conquest over indigenous tribes by a U.S. Army clearing the way for white settlers driven westward by a lust for land and gold.

As it was in colonial America, the young country’s expansion was fueled by “Manifest Destiny” — a self-supreme notion that any land coveted by Euro-Americans was, by providence, rightfully theirs for the taking.

…The sculptures were chiseled by an imported Ku Klux Klansman on a granite mountain owned by indigenous tribes on what they considered sacred land — land that the U.S. Supreme Court said in 1980 was illegally taken from them.

  1. I guess the Antifa-Taliban can now prepare to dynamite the sculptures, being that they are all officially racist and stuff.

  2. Hmmm. I always thought Mt. Rushmore was located in the “Black Hills.” If it is part “black”, how could it possibly be racist?

    Just a thought.

  3. Will they edit the scenes from North By Northwest with Cary Grant being chased by James Mason on Mt. Rushmore now because of political correctness? I hate the left, they ruin everything. How about the ending where Cary Grant obviously boinks Eva Marie Saint as the train passes into a tunnel? Is that sexist now as well. Clifford D Simak noted sci fi author and one time writer and editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune is rolling over in his grave at the left’s stupidity.

  4. Radical Liberal Whacko Pandering Media Supremacy!
    My definition of so-called “White Supremacy” is the ability, pride and dignity to suffer life’s universal woes with the personal responsibility and integrity that my parents (yes both of them) taught me. In other words that means no whining, belly-aching, rioting, shooting, looting or finger-pointing and blaming everyone else!

  5. Not enough peolpe read the Star Tribune to support its publication. Follow the soros money and you’ll find who supports it.

  6. I think we should demand all liberals give up any property they own to show solidarity with the indigenous people who originally settled in an area by displacing, killing and destroying the local Flora and Fauna so they could survive. Liberals hate the word retarded because it describes them too effectively.
    They are a plague on mankind.

  7. Wait ’till they carve out Donald Trump next to George Washington. I’d donate to that in a New York minute.
    Mark my words, if these commie bastards ever get back in the White House, they will paint it brown, and nothing, nothing! great will ever happen in our beloved country again.
    Not a phucking thing!
    But everything will be free
    Remember the new “Three R’s”
    Oops, that’s four. A Gropin’ Joe moment.

  8. GOL DANG RACIST SLAVE OWNING LINCOLN!!!!!! Someone should shoot that guy in the head.

    What about that GOL DANG RACIST SLAVE OWNING ROOSEVELT!?!?! Pulmonary embolism is too good for him!!!!

    I don’t recognize the other two. Obamas ancestors?

  9. I traveled by car to South Dakota as a 9 year old with my Mother, Sister and my mothers friend whom lived there with her Methodist Preacher husband and family. I remember the monument, the Black Hills and Indian communities but must have slept through the Klan rally.

  10. Since all the Lutheran and Catholic charities thought it a good idea to import tens of thousands of Somalis to Minnesota, I don’t think anybody should give a shit about what they think!!!

  11. the Press in general has hated America since 1950. he Star has been part of the hate. But they were subtle, unlike the W Post, NYT + LaTimes, in their hate. Seems they feel their oblique references to how bad America is was not getting the hat out. If you ever doubted the Star has hated America for 69 years, this should erase your doubts.

    Of course it is a lie! but most America hating “news” the MSM (Since Ronny not The Ress) has been a lie!

    Go back and read the America hate they put out about Sarah from ’08 to ’13! Pure hate! She loves America; The Star hates America! Again for emphasis AS DOES MOST OF AMERICA’S “NEWS” ORGS!

  12. They forgot the handcuffs, leg iorns, bull whips, hanging ropes and white sheets.

    Maybe sheets is what they are full of.

  13. I am sorry for the bad typing. My machind died (why?0 as I finished and took 15 min to resurect!

    there clearly are several “typos” Sorry

  14. Just because white men have powered the development and advancement of civilization to where it is today and black men have done nothing, it doesn’t mean that whites are a supreme race.

  15. “Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible … The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it. And, superiority excites envy.
    Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.”

  16. living here in the Gods back yard, the beautiful Black Hills, i think we need another wall.

  17. star Tribune, sell your printing presses and office building and give the proceeds to the Crazy Horese monument they are building just down the way and across the street from Mt Rushmore you filthy animals.

    so progtards want todo unto Mt Rushmore as the Taliban did unto the Buddhist statues. different daddies but the same power craving whore mother.

  18. Technically, the granite they are carved from is more grey than white. I can see the Boys on the Hill from my deck. I truly believe if they tried to disfigure them, shooting would be the result.
