Mount Rushmore

Now we have a leftist CNN commentator with the name Angela Rye, demanding that all memorials and likenesses of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee be taken down.

That would require the total destruction of Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. 

Rye was quoted on CNN in her own words that there is a “problem” with our teaching of American history in all our schools. 

“George Washington was a slaveowner. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not, he wasn’t protecting my freedom,” arrogantly stated by Rye. 

She is disgusted with our forefathers and having said this, the logical conclusion is that those who penned the Constitution must be villains. 

I can see where this is going. It’s a front for ripping up our Constitution by the Elitist Globalists. 

She goes on to say, “My ancestors weren’t deemed human beings to him. [The monuments] all need to come down,”

“This country was built on a very violent past that resulted in the death and the raping and the killing of my ancestors. I’m not going to allow us to say it’s okay for Robert E. Lee but not a George Washington. We need to call it what it is,” she rebuked. 

In closing Rye added that America is “very close to repeating” the problems of the early days of the Union, apparently inferring that because of President Trump’s reaction to violence in Jefferson’s hometown of Charlottesville, were returning to times of slavery.
