T

A single man designed and built that sculpture over decades
(He had helpers)

Why destroy it ?

It’s a National Park and a Heritage Site

The Indians are in the process of carving a competing sculpture that is splendid nearby - they have a nice “tourist trap” from which it can be seen - and do programs for the tourists like ceremonial dances - educational and entertaining and the gift shop was exceptional

The CRAZY HORSE memorial is spectacular and of a grand scale ! I hope they finish it - work is ongoing and needs donations and years to finish

Just donate to their response of raising their hero and leave our monument

To each his own

I'm talking about Mt. Rushmore.

I can't believe the cavalier comments that I've read about it's "removal".

Anyone who loves this country could not advocate for it's destruction.

Haven't seen it at night but the person with me wanted to see it and she did the helicopter flyover during the day.

Who is calling for it's destruction?

Pluto’s out of Capricorn; no “real world” stuff is happening. By the time it gets back Rahu will be in Taurus which is ruled by the white planet Venus. (Venus in opalescent- white- same thing). Everything will have calmed down and when they start their hate and vitriol up again I bet nothing will happen.

Several times.
The lighting ceremony is beautiful.
Blowing it up would be like blowing up the Capitol building in D.C.
Mt. Rushmore is super iconic.
If it gets blown up, we've lost the country.

Re: Sioux Call to remove Mt Rushmore
Everything is sacred to Asian tribes that eventually inhabited North America. I am surprised anything got done with continuous desecration at every footstep or utterance that required a pow-wow to remove a curse or evil spirits. I'm kinda wondering if they are the ancient Catholics of old that created all the original guilt starting with smoking that eventually ended with Big Foot leaving the gene pool because he toked a bit of herb. Oh well Sioux, do what you think best but really consider the fallout in the casinos okay?

I really doubt the people of South Dakota would allow it to happen. They WOULD have the National Guard there, and using guns if they had to.

I bet they have increased security on it right now.

Trivia: That monument is so huge, that a Volkswagen can fit into the PUPILS of the presidents' eyes.

Re: Sioux Call to remove Mt Rushmore
This is not unexpected. I'm not exactly in favor of it since it is such an amazing work of art and engineering, but it is a completely legit complaint.

That mountain was one of their most sacred places and the US govt allowed it to be desecrated, in their eyes, and turned into a huge monument that basically memorializes their subjugation.
 Quoting: James-XF


The black hills were the heart of the Sioux nation and sacred to them. The wildlife there nurtured them for generations.
Putting the faces of the conquerors there was really quite an insult, way worse than building mosques over our sites, like 911.

What do you do though, shame to destroy it now but if they want to it is their land.

Impossible to relocate, removal could be accomplished with jackhammers.

it took 14 years to sculpt using massive quantities of TNT. Jackhammers, lmao.

Re: Sioux Call to remove Mt Rushmore
Fake news. They make millions off people coming to see mount Rushmore.
Casinos all over the place. Almost all run by native Americans. Take away the attraction lose tourists lose jobs and money.
South Dakota has next to nothing in it worth visiting or doing.
Don't get me wrong it has its own natural beauty but seeing endless miles of slow rolling hills gets mind numbing fast.

Nobody is going to tear it down unless they use a bunker buster. The mounment has lots of built in sniper nests. The only reason I saw Crazy Horse was I went to Rushmore.

Sturgis 2020 is happening this year. Cut through the Res instead of taking 90 it is quicker and has more services.

It was sacred ground that was stolen and desecrated.
 Quoting: Nine's


Evrything is a 'sacred' something or other to them. Hence, they got their asses whooped. SHut off the water, cut the power, close the white mans stores and see how long they last. Hey, all those things are cultural appropriation. See what happens next...
Silencing yourself and living in the dark just means you've left yourself exposed to the type of people who wander the dark looking for victims who won't scream. TlvmmCpoft!

Until you go out on a limb, you do not know if the branch will hold.
