"Native Americans have long criticized the sculpture, in part because it was built on what had been Indigenous land. "


Should we tell the NYT that Manhattan was also indigenous land?
Time to give the entire US back?

MT Rushmore is next.
Remember when people made fun of the slippery slope argument (like, a couple of weeks ago)?

The more the right keeps talking about it the greater the chance of this happening.
Just look at the knee issue. Wasn't much of an issue until our moron president tried to divide the country over it.

George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
Coming 2020: MT Rushmore, US Currency,Washington State,Washington D.C. Colombia university, stay tuned.
Whether or not they succeed isn't the point.
It is their view of the history, and current state, of our country that is abhorrent.

I think as we talk about double standards, this becomes an important thing for both sides to acknowledge:

Quote
“Donald Trump is the Canceler in Chief,” he said. “But the correction of Trump’s abuses cannot become an overcorrection that stifles the principles we believe in.”
