While more and more statues are torn down, liberals are beginning to target more prominent historical symbols.

As a result, one key monument in the United States may be in major trouble– Mount Rushmore.

Corporate-owned Vice Magazine recently posted an article urging that American politics, culture, and history should be erased, to give way to a new system.

And that expulsion of history would begin with the destruction of Mount Rushmore.

The first draft of the article was entitled, “Let’s Blow Up Mount Rushmore”.

Later, the title was changed to “Let’s Get Rid of Mount Rushmore”, to avoid any confusion among liberals who may take the original title too seriously.

The article gave a long list of excuses as to why the removal of a national treasure such as Mount Rushmore was necessary.

Breitbart reported:

More than ever, old monuments to famous white American men are being threatened … [because] the only way we can help America fulfill her promise is by shedding the faith and facing the truth. A big part of that process probably involves taking those men we’ve placed so high and bringing them back down to Earth where we can judge them for who they really were… As long as we allow those men to be cults of personality who exist beyond reproach, we’re never going to be able to see them for all of their good and all of their evil.

Cooper argues that the nation’s historical markers and monuments help preserve a political system of racial exploitation and inequality, and should be erased to help build a new society.

It’s hard to be critical of a system when that system becomes an article of faith, filled with myths (the cherry tree), deities (Founding Fathers), and notions of salvation (the City on a Hill). It’s going to be impossible to improve America if we can’t be honest about its origins and its past. Her fruit is born from violence and greed, watered by the blood of my ancestors.

Cooper downplays America’s political, cultural, economic and technological contributions to the world, and he also ignores near-term debates about investments, wages and immigration reform, education improvements, economic opportunity and much else in favor of a high-emotion campaign to erase historical symbols on the nation’s boulevards:

The argument found in Vice Magazine mimics a growing demand from the left to ignite a culture war in the United States.

As more historical markers are destroyed, more history is in danger of being forgotten by future generations.

But the attack on Mount Rushmore goes further than just destroying a national monument– rather, liberals wish to attack the very foundation of the United States as they wage war against its founding fathers.

Liberals wish to wipe away the memory of American heroes, such as Thomas Jefferson who was the chief author of the Bill of Rights (including the First Amendment) and General/President George Washington, who declined to rule as a dictator after the Revolutionary War and instead built a democracy.
