South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has four simple words for anyone thinking about defacing Mount Rushmore.
Noem was responding to a comment made by Conservative Ben Shapiro who wondered “So, when is our woke historical revisionist priesthood going to insist on blowing up Mount Rushmore?”
“Not on my watch,” posted the South Dakota Governor.
It was nice to see some leadership coming from a Republican, aside from President Trump. Since the death of George, Floyd Republicans in DC have been silent.
Noem’s response comes after protestors in Wisconsin – who admitted their protest would not be peaceful – tore down a statue promoting women’s rights, destroyed another statue honoring an abolitionist, and violently beat a Democrat State Senator who took a picture of the protest.
Emily Hamer was covering the protests for a local Madison newspaper the organizers she refused to name told demonstrators to put their phones away telling them the protest will not be peaceful.
Earlier today, President Trump gave anarchistic mobs a warning that arrests and up to ten years in prison were coming for anyone caught “vandaliz[ing] or destroy[ing] any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S.”
