A 2015 clip of former Democratic Presidential candidate and Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders praising the cultural accomplishment of Mount Rushmore has resurfaced, with some contrasting the democratic socialist’s praise of the monument with the potent hatred for the icon of American civilization expressed by many elite liberals within the corporate media today.
“Just the accomplishment and the beauty,” says the progressive leader of the monument, which he visited during a South Dakota campaign tour in 2015. “It really does make one very proud to be an American.
This is our country at its very best… What an incredible achievement,” says Sanders of Rushmore, which the Democratic Party’s official Twitter feed has likened to a “white supremacist” monument and the New York Times has linked to slavery and the Ku Klux Klan.
If he were running for President today- just months after his second presidential campaign sputtered and lost the Democratic nomination to party elder Joe Biden, Sanders would all but certainly be castigated by liberal fanatics as a “racist” ignoring the systematic oppression and racism that the four U.S. Presidents featured on the cultural monument supposedly represent.
Sanders’ 2015 admiration of the monument- which, by all indications appears to be honest, and sincere- is indicative of the cultural fanaticism the affluent cultural liberals who prevented his nomination in 2016 and 2020 have installed within the Democratic Party. Sanders represents the tradition of the 1930’s left, which fixates its political focus on the material well-being of working class Americans, as opposed to the cultural jihad of neoliberal Democrats. Unfortunately, it appears the cultural left fanatics- who furiously howl for the destruction of Mount Rushmore and statues of iconic American Presidents while cowtowing to a donor class of corrupt billionaire oligarchs- have taken the driver’s seat of the Democratic Party, leaving Sanders’ admiration for the monument in history.
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
