The irony of a man aligned with Klan politics carving that face.

“Give me a haircut that’s rock solid.”
“Say no more fam.”
What if Rushmore was a band?
You mean to tell me the mountains didn’t just grow like that?!
I will never really understand how you can carve something realistic, at that scale, with the work having to be done inches/feet away from the stone. How can you actually tell what you’re doing? I’m guessing they had people standing far away telling them what to chisel out?
“These mountains look important to the natives. Lets blow them up with dynamite!”
I’m sure someone knows this better than I, but isn’t mount Rushmore a religious site for a local native tribe? And wasn’t it chosen specifically to fuck with said natives?
Correct me if I’m wrong, and elaborate if you know more. I think it’s important for self proclaimed history buffs to acknowledge the darker aspects of popular history.

Rushmore is sacred to the local Native Americans. To have put the faces of four conquerors whose nation committed genocide against the conquered…it was a a supreme and – if not intended, then certainly a thoughtless – insult.
Absolute insult to native Americans- Rushmore is a national embarrassment and a sad, disgraceful statement on American hubris. Shame.
For a second it looked like hashirama senju
I thought that was handsome jack from borderlands at first glance
