    The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.
    Is there anything on the pamphlets that is untruthful? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Mount Rushmore has long been a source of controversy regarding it's racist undertones. It was placed, as we are told, under the noses of the Souix Indian Nation most sacred grounds, reminding them who the big boss was. Or, some folks say that, anyways.

    I do not understand how some people can get all upset when the christian pastors, preaching homophobic and other <fill in the blank> hate from pulpits in Houston, get subpoenas. Yet, the very same people will get all upset when the Islamic clergy preaches similar hate towards America from their pulpits or pamphlets, just pointed in a different direction.

    That "Freedom of Religion," thing can be a mother****er, no?

    I detect a scent of hypocrisy.

    Or maybe Americans should just move and Muslims work at getting their own Mosque in order.
    You seem to speak of Muslims and Americans as two different groups.

    Which is why you are part of the problem.

    um who hates America and is trying to bring it down? or stop people from defending it

    No, we don't need a national day of torture. Just a recognition that racism existed in varying degrees from day one of this nation. It particularly flourished during that period of time where black people were owned as slaves. And some of the intelligent men of the late 18th century, who should have known better, actually owned other human beings themselves. Two of them are on Mt. Rushmore.

    Are you serious? I've seen many dozens of collectivist drones on sites like this one make very clear what a vile country they think the U.S. is--even though they choose to take up space in it. One way to undermine or even potentially destroy a country or culture you resent or despise is to run it down at every opportunity, and encourage other people to do the same. Many people in the 1960's openly expressed their low opinion of all things American, and some of them have insinuated themselves into the public education system. By now (with help from rich leftist hypocrites like Oliver Stone and Michael Moore) they've been able to indoctrinate a couple generations with their propaganda. There are now enough millions of these fine citizens in the U.S. to elect--twice--a President who shares their resentment of it and contempt for its Constitution.

    Yes, as a matter of fact there is.

    The question at the top of the pamphlet asks: "What does it take to be on Mt. Rushmore?" The information listed under each President, while accurate, does not in any way reflect on the decision making process that went into the deciding who would actually appear on the monument. As written, the pamphlet would have us believe that the thought process in choosing these men for the monument had much to do with them owning slaves or harboring negative views of the black race. This of course is patently false as these men were chosen for their service and their historical significance to this nation. The fact that they were slave owners or held racist views I would argue never once was even brought up when the monument was being planned.

    So what this pamphlet actually does is condemn the 18th and 19th century actions of these men using the standards of the 21st century, which is not an accurate or honest way to evaluate them. It also wrongfully suggests that those actions somehow were a prerequisite for having their collective faces carved in stone. So while "the facts" of this pamphlet may be accurate, the picture this pamphlet attempts to paint with these facts is dishonest as hell.
