Certain statues and monuments keep disappearing or turning up vandalized. Namely, because leftist diaper wads have a habit of destroying stuff they find triggering (see Protester Charged for Vandalizing Confederate Statue… After Openly Bragging About it! and Chicago Pastor Wants to Remove George Washington Monument Because Slavery). After crumbling the Confederates and defacing various innocent sculptures (including one which represents unity), progressives have set their sights on a new target. It’s bigger. It’s rockier. It’s mountain-ier.
This comes from an op-ed penned by a passionate “activist” over at Vice:
Donald Trump says removing confederate statues is a slippery slope that could get out of control. Maybe he’s right – would that be such a bad thing?
More than ever, old monuments to famous white American men are being threatened in the name of progress. Far-right sites like the Daily Caller have been running with the theme, publishing alarmist takes with headlines like, “It’s Time to Blow Up Mount Rushmore.”
Which made me wonder: If Rushmore ever did get “blown up,” what should those dude be replaced with? Fact is, I’m not sure there is any American president worthy … I mean, every single one has at least been partially complicit in horrific atrocities.
Erecting these statues amounted to power moves by white people who felt threatened. And now that they are being toppled, and neo-Nazis fight against their removal, their true meaning has become clearer than ever.
[If] we will ever see a day when there is a serious push to blow up Rushmore and other monuments like it … I suspect I’d be onboard.
The column was previously titled something akin to “Let’s Blow Up Mount Rushmore.” But Vice eventually changed it for reasons which are self-explanatory.

Just going to leave this here…
Quick question for leftists: have you no shame? People said, “pfft, what’s next, Mount Rushmore?” in jest. It was a rhetorical question, not a challenge. But rather than take the opportunity to show the world how rational you can be, you took it and turned it into a hold my beer while I blow this sh*t up moment.
Uh oh. I used a GIF of a non-white person (see ATTENTION INTERNET: Using Black Gifs, Emojis is Now Considered ‘Digital Blackface…’). Alert the appropriation police!
It’s no wonder the rest of the nation doesn’t take the left seriously. Especially when they do stuff like this: AntiFa Protesters Vandalize Monument They Thought was Confederate. It Symbolized Unity…
Also, Venezuela could use some help. In the form of actual help, not symbolic statue-toppling. You know, what with them living under actual oppression. Happening now.
It appears nothing can sate these champions of progress. That is, nothing aside from destroying all the offending monuments in the world. Speaking of getting rid of statues which represent systems of oppression — no word yet on whether the left plans to trash the Che Guevara monument in Cuba. He is responsible for plenty of death and suffering after all.
Ah well, I’m sure they’ll get to him eventually. For now they’re just sticking to wearing his face on their shirts.
