Democrats: Celebrating 4th of July ‘Glorifies White Supremacy’
Party links to article attacking Mount Rushmore
As historic statues are torn down across the nation amid the Black Lives Matter protests, the Democrat Party set their sites on Mount Rushmore referring to the Independence Day celebrations at the famous monument as a glorification of "white supremacy.”
Here is what the Democrats wrote on their official Twitter:
“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again."
“He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore – a region once sacred to tribal communities.”
Along with their accusations, the Democratic party cited an article from The Guardian, a far-left British Newspaper which recently was exposed for historical links to slavery, who called Mount Rushmore is a “symbol of white supremacy.”
But the Democrats quickly deleted their tweet after it sparked an immediate widespread backlash.
The tweet was only up for an hour, but screenshots where taken.
Political commentator Stephen Miller wrote:
“Gosh, it sure would be neat if there were an entire industry of professionals who could ask the Democrat nominee for President of his party if he agrees with this sentiment that Mount Rushmore glorifies white supremacy.”
“I mean, we still don’t even know where he stands on removing statues,” Miller added.
“They let him out to run around once a week and give a 12-minute statement on something and then back to basement grandpa.”

"Radical protesters now want to remove Mount Rushmore."
"I say hell no to that. We are going to add @realDonaldTrump to it instead!" he added.

Last week, Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem promised to protect Mt. Rushmore from the prospect of demolition.
Noem made her intentions clear to the "woke" mob on the prospect of them eying up the historical monument:
“Not on my watch," she warned.

The news comes after spate statues were torn down across the US, including a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian immigrant who died fighting against slavery, which was toppled by BLM protestors in Wisconsin.
Also torn down was the historic Christopher Columbus statue, which was sculpted by an Italian immigrant.
Earlier this month, a memorial in California dedicated to survivors of the Holocaust was toppled and smashed by vandals.
