Let's hear what the Sioux say
 
2020-06-25 8:48:30 PM  
South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson introduced legislation on Thursday that would prohibit federal funds from being used to alter the faces of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

Okay?
 
2020-06-25 9:04:05 PM  
And who is saying they want to alter the faces on Mount Rushmore?
 
2020-06-25 9:13:13 PM  
Give it back to the people that the Supreme Court says own the land

When you see him, you understand why his Johnson is dusty

And a reminder that ACORN was/is a community organizing group that does a LOT of voter registration drives, especially for POC.

Its why I'm certain that dirtbag James O'Keefe's faked "sting" video was a targeting as part of a voter suppression effort.

So federal funds can't be used to put Trump's face on the monument? Fine by me.

I've got to admit: that's a fine bit of stunt legislation. Utter nonsense substantively, but pretty sharp as propaganda.

Does it keep it so we don't add any faces too?


I wonder if a Dusty Johnson is like a Rusty Venture.

This makes as much sense as banning Sharia in Oklahoma.

Man! This equality thing has hit a deep nerve. I picture them over the last few weeks as chickens with their heads cut off and the heads are frothing at the mouth at everything no matter how inconsequential or imaginary.

I'm still not sure what it is he is getting at. No fed money to alter so they couldn't, say, clean them after the fire?

I know, I know. It's another useless patriotic soundbite for fox and the idiots. Basically like everything they do it is empty and useless.

You want to change it?  Fark you, get your own mountain and do your own work and see who visits which more.

It's bathroom access all over again. This shiat wasn't a problem until some asshole tried to legislate it.

Bathrooms. Some female comes into the male's restroom (happens a lot at busy bars, or used to I guess) the guys complain but let it happen. Male goes into a female restroom (which are generally entirely sectioned off) people complained louder, but the world moved on..... Until some R tried to legislate it.

Same with Mt. Rushmore. Is anyone trying to change it? No. Again, some R tried to legislate a non-problem.

The only people I've heard talk about Mt. Rushmore are scaremongering Derpublicams.  Now go back to your cave.

Came here to say this. The Sioux never gave the mountain up by treaty (which in and of itself is problematic). Give it back and let them decide.

I'm sure Millimeters O'Keefe would have whipped up another faked video if it was really a legit concern to the right.

Republicans can never be satisfied with all the problems they've created for America. They will continue to create them as long as they exist.

What people forget about that whole scandal at the time was, at first, it fooled pretty much everybody. The first time I heard about the ACORN "scandal" was Jon Stewart talking about it on the Daily Show like it was true
 
2020-06-25 11:15:12 PM  
Well, (sigh) in fairness there are people who violently dislike Mt. Rushmore, considering it to be a imperialist defacement of sacred Native American land, but said people are generally about as far from having political power as you can get. So, yeah, the bill is a pointless stunt.

I worked as a community organizer for ACORN back in 2001, before I joined the Army. Most of my 16 ish hour days were spent helping people in otherwise disenfranchised communities to register to vote. So I can vouch for this comment.

The whole thing is built via dynamite, and it's truly a work of art, regardless of the dubious provenance.

Mount Rushmore is a boring tourist trap in the middle of nowhere that I was underwhelmed by when I was ten. And I renew my objection to the separate statehoods of Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas.
 
2020-06-25 11:35:31 PM  
But if they take down Mt Rushmore, there will be no reason whatsoever to go to South Dakota!

It's not pointless.

It's riling up nationalist sentiment among the base as we roll towards July 4th.
Just like the flag burning amendment nonsense.

I like mt rushmore, but it's not going to be there forever. If I had to choose between keeping it and returning it to the Sioux, I vote present. But I doubt it lasts 200 years. And if America were to fall, it would be degraded and erased sooner than later.

So take pictures while you can! Someday it will be gone.

If you ever wondered why the rubble was never cleared away at the bottom of the carving: It is believed that the act of doing so would cause the carving to collapse.

Sooo...

1) Start campaign to "honor the dignity" and "clean up" Mt Rushmore by doing the "patriotic duty" of removing all the rubble underneath it.

2) Trump signs executive order to do so and work is done in weeks

3) Crumble

I hope no one picks up on this.

I want to see Mt. Rushmore when I'm traveling on the way to something.

*Looks at maps*

Oh. It isn't on the way to anything. I'll pass.
