The NY Times has totally given up on a few things- journalism, objectivity, veracity and history.
They now advocate for the destruction of Mount Rushmore
First, a history lesson.
The Lakota tribe only held the land around Mt. Rushmore for a time. They stole it from the Cheyenne.
After this, the Lakotas became fierce buffalo hunters riding on horseback. In around 1720 the Lakota split into sects and scattered in the region but later by about 1760 they relocated in close proximity on the east bank of the Missouri river. However, they couldnt cross the river for over a decade due to the influence of powerful tribes Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara. Ending the long wait, in 1780, after the great small-pox epidemic killed three quarters of these powerful tribes, the Lakota crossed the river and settled in the grass prairies of the high plains. By 1775 all the Lakota sects were settled in the high plains and a year later they defeated the Cheyenne people and captured the Black Hills (Paha Sapa) and made it their home.They weren't exactly a peaceful tribe:
The Lakota are a very strong and fierce tribe with legendary warriors and the battles and treaties that took place between the Lakotas and the United States Government have a long and popular history. First recorded incidence was the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804 where the Lakotas did not allow the explorers to head upstream the Missouri river and the conflict ended without casualties after a standoff. The southern Lakotas, in 1843, attacked a village owned by Pawnee chief Blue Coat in Nebraska and killed many and burned their lodges down.The US obtained the land from the Lakotas who killed the Cheyenne for it. The Pawnee also got hammered along the way. It was all so peaceful.
However, Lakotas and other tribal bands attacked emigrant trains and settlers which attracted a vengeful hit back from the US Army in 1855 under General William Harney, killing more than 100 Lakotas.
The Lakota slowly migrated south and westward and pushed aside the Omaha tribe in this early migration. At first, they didnt have horses, but horses were spreading throughout the Plains from Spanish settlements in the Southwest. By 1742 the Tetons had gotten horses and they became more and more like horse-riding nomads. In the Central Plains the Lakota came into conflict with the Pawnee, a village tribe that held the rich hunting lands of the Republican River Valley until the Lakota entered the region. The Pawnee war parties usually made their trips on foot, unlike other tribes. Because the Lakota were mounted on horses, they had an advantage.The Times cannot bring itself to tell you how brutal these tribes were to each other, but it is the truth.
The Omaha war parties varied from eight to a hundred warriors. All members of the party were volunteers. The leader was usually a well-known warrior who had demonstrated his skill in battle. The warriors are said to have worn a white covering of soft, dressed skin for their heads. No shirt was worn, but a robe was belted around the waist and tied over the breast. No feathers or ornaments could be worn at this time. In actual battle, the warriors wore only moccasins and breechcloth.
Sometimes the wives of a few of the men accompanied a large war party to help care for their clothing and to do the cooking. A sacred War Pack, kept in the Tent of War, was important in any war activities. The contents of the pack were believed to protect the tribe from harm. A returning war party with the scalp of an enemy held a special scalp or victory dance. Men who won special honors on the warpath were permitted to wear an eagle feather in their scalp locks. Certain warriors might also wear a deer-tail headdress. Only important men wore the large feathered headdress seen in movies and only on social occasions. Only the men wore feathers in their hair, but the women might wear them on their clothing.
Trump spoke at the monument last night. The Times' response was predictable
Yet when obama visited there in 2008 Mt. Rushmore it was well, different

Nope ,it must go because Trump visited it ,LOL
The NY Times must go! We must burn it’s buildings down and execute everyone who works there as traitors! Let them contemplate this!
Not “stolen”. Conquered.
I’m curious as to how Trump’s I.T. guys managed to wipe the “Dark and Divisive” speech he reportedly gave last night from the entire internet and replace it with the inspiring and articulate speech about America’s proud history I watched a replay of this morning.
Personally I think the NY Times has to go. Happily, unlike Mount Rushmore the NY Times is actively working on its own destruction.
NY times building must go,Washington Post building must go ,ALL amazon warehouses must go etc...Everything that liberals own must go if built on stolen Indian land.....
The NYT must go. Their building is sitting on land stolen from the Indians.
I can't wait for a racist BLM mob to loot their main office. Or, does NYT management think it's sacred ground to the Revolution?
Trump was being divisive in the same way the Americans were being divisive when they landed on Omaha beach.
Cry me a river.
Wish we could protest in front of the NYT 24/7. I live rather far for that, plys DeBlastio would scream COVID19.
We need to fight back somehow.
WATCH: Bernie Sanders Hails Mount Rushmore As Our Country At Its Very Best In 2015 CNN Clip
I love it when the NY Times helps Trump in his reelection. NY Times, please demand the Statue of liberty be removed next, yes, that will also go down real well
NY Times Wash Post, CNN, MSNBC have to go since they are nothing but lies and the mouthpiece of the Marxists.
The Times is upset because no Democrats are represented on Mt. Rushmore, except maybe Jefferson, and liberals have disowned him already.
Maybe we should tell them the sculptures were really created by millions of years of wind and water erosion. They’ll believe that.
the NY Times is actively working on its own destruction.
Yep times change. I remember many years ago where many small
towns had a newspaper. It may have been a once a week edition
but it featured local news, local business ads, etc.
Burn them all to the ground!
These people are insane traitors and need to be exterminated.
“The NY Times must go! We must burn its buildings down and execute everyone who works there as traitors! “
Sounds fair to me.
Just tell the looters that before 1960, the NYT endorsed Republican candidates for president. Dwight D. Eisenhower was the last one.
