• Taking Action to Preserve America’s Historic Heritage … from D.C. to Mt. Rushmore

    Surge Summary: National Guard troops were mobilized in the nation’s capital Thursday to protect the Emancipation Memorial from threatened attacks. The Justice Dept. is prosecuting scores of rioters on assorted, serious charges. The President is being denounced by some for a planned visit to Mt. Rushmore, which many call a symbol of America’s structure of racism.

    Four hundred National Guard troops [were] mobilized in Washington, D.C., to provide backup to local police and other federal law enforcement agencies.

    They [were] preparing to combat left-wing anarchists who have threatened to tear down the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park [Thursday night].  President Trump … vowed that it won’t happen.  We will report on any developments [Friday].

    In related news, the Justice Department is prosecuting more than 70 cases against rioters.  The charges range from arson to murder.  And kudos to Rep. Louie Gohmert for urging the Justice Department to use the RICO statutes to prosecute the radical left.

    President Trump is attending a fireworks display at Mount Rushmore on July 3rd.  I’m sure it will be a magnificent display of patriotism.  But not everyone is happy about it.

    Native American activist Nick Tilsen denounced Trump’s visit and Mount Rushmore, calling it “a symbol of white supremacy, of structural racism,” adding that it includes “the white faces of the conquerors who committed genocide.”  So Mount Rushmore is as evil as the Emancipation Memorial and must be destroyed too.

    George Washington is featured on Mount Rushmore because he led the birth of the nation, which the left says was an evil act.

    Thomas Jefferson is there because he oversaw America’s westward expansion.  Well, the left insists that led to a genocide of Native Americans, and Jefferson was also a slave owner, as was Washington.

    Abraham Lincoln is on Mount Rushmore because he preserved the Union and freed the slaves.  Teddy Roosevelt is there for his role in making America a leading industrial power.

    Mount Rushmore won’t be as easy to destroy as other statues or monuments, but that won’t stop the left from trying.  Some so-called “progressives” have been wanting to blow it up for years.
