According to Democrats, lighting fireworks on the Fourth of July at Mount Rushmore is equal to glorifying white supremacy.
Trump to Celebrate Freedom in South Dakota
President Trump announced his plans to be present for the fireworks display at the historic American monument, displaying four of the United States’ greatest presidents. While it appears that almost everything Trump does, Democrats find a way to criticize him, their latest move is entirely unjustifiable.
Will Democrats Call Anything Racist Now?
The Democratic National Committee tweeted out an insane message on June 29, 2020, the Washington Times reported.
“Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore — a region once sacred to Tribal communities,” the DNC’s official Twitter account posted.
President Trump’s decision to visit the historic Mount Rushmore comes on the heels of statues and memorials being desecrated across the country. Left-wing activists and Black Lives Matter mobs have vandalized many monuments, including statues of abolitionists.
There have been echoed calls for the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln to be removed from the iconic Mount Rushmore landmark located in South Dakota.
The race-baiting tweet was ultimately deleted, but many individuals and the Republican National Committee took screen-shots before it was taken down.
“If you support America’s founding and our heroes throughout our history you’re now ‘glorifying white supremacy’? This is insane, historically illiterate nonsense. When will Joe Biden condemn his own party’s hatred of America?” GOP spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington tweeted.

“Would be curious to hear @TheDemocrats explain what part of shooting off fireworks at Mt. Rushmore for the 4th of July ‘glorifies white supremacy’. The fireworks? Mt. Rushmore itself? The 4th of July?” GOP pollster Logan Dobson asked. “Like I think I know what they’re implying here, and the tweet was obviously designed to tell their base something, but it would be really instructive if they were actually made to answer the question.”
Large Crowd Expected to Celebrate
The president is going to be speaking at the event and more than 7,000 tickets have been given out for people to watch, according to Fox News. It is anticipated that there will be a lot of Trump supporters, but it seems unenviable that there will be protesters there as well.
Despite the left being completely pro-protests when it comes to the massive rallies by BLM and ANTIFA across the U.S., they can’t help but criticize this upcoming gathering.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, who has been sticking up for Americans’ constitutional rights, said that social distancing and masks would be options – however, masks will be made available and there will be temperature checks for those wishing to attend.
“Masks will be available, first off. They are not required, but people will be able to have them if they don’t have one with them when they come. And, I think that we have done a number of things to mitigate the spread of the COVID. As you probably know, our state has not mandated these various policies that other states have. And, I think we are very proud of that and our numbers have remained low,” South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg said on “Fox & Friends” Friday.
Democrats Versus Trump’s Every Move Continues
When the president does something as innocent as visiting a patriotic landmark on the 4th of July, his actions are called racist.
I guess it makes sense that the Democrats were the Party of Slavery – they hated freedom then and it appears they hate freedom now.
