Nobody gave 2 fucks about Mount Rushmore a few weeks ago now The rent a mob and cnn are all over it .
Calm down, it's only a rockface.

Well, to the whites it was that anyway.

To the Lakota nation it was actually sacred ground, and a f**king Klansman went in and ruined it.

It was like if the white Australians had gone to Uluru and carved out the faces of Captain Cook, Ned Kelly, Crocodile Dundee and Rupert Murdoch.
oh  the Lakota who stole it off Cheyenne who stole it off the Kiowa only one theft matters though.
Funny how the supposed "law and order" people never see a problem with genocide committed by whites.

Except the US Government in a Treaty in 1868 agreed that the Lakota would keep the Black Hills forever.
Forever lasted 8 years till US citizens discovered (illegally ) that there was gold there.
They then fckd the Lakota out to mainly useless lands and turned them into poverty stricken dependents on US Government handouts.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

By your logic, the British have nothing to be ashamed about for what they’ve inflicted on Ireland over the past 900 years. Our various chieftains were fighting each other left, right and centre, and wasn’t the original incursion by the Normans at the behest of the king of Leinster? What have we been bitching and moaning about for all this time? ::)

Apparently the Trump supporters were shouting “go back to where you came from” at the Lakota protesters at Mt Rushmore in the Black Hills. :o ::)

Why does cancel culture want to remove a monument which prominently features the president who fought to end slavery?

Maybe because he consistently promised to never end slavery.

Is the issue not that it was built on sacred land stolen from the Sioux? An issue that still has not been settled more than 150 years later.

In case any liberal-leaning people are worried that his minders will finally get through to Trump and convince him to ease off on the divisive rhetoric and grievance in advance of the election as his numbers continue to sink... well they haven't got anywhere yet.

Bubba Wallace and the NASCAR noose issue have caught the Dear Leader's attention (must have been a piece on OAN or Fox or something)

Over a poll, I'm guessing?

Their poll operations actually seem to be fairly serious and respectable.

Click on 538 Grade to sort the pollsters by grade, and Fox News/Beacon/Shaw is near the top with an A- rating and more than 70% of races correctly called.

Biden His Time: Joe Now The Odds-On Favorite Over Donald Trump In Election Betting Markets

Posted By Chops on July 7, 2020

In late January, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign was dead in the water. He had no momentum. No buzz. That all belonged to Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

Biden’s campaign was even more dead in February. Fourth and fifth place finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, respectively, will do that to you.

Then in March, South Carolina happened.

Today, Joe Biden is the overwhelming 2020 presidential election odds favorite.

Biden is 77 years old. We can’t call him “kid.” So maybe he’s the “Comeback Grandpa?”

This kind of rise is historic. As we’ve written previously, no candidate has ever finished outside the top 2 in Iowa AND New Hampshire and gone on to win his or her party’s nomination.

Not only is Biden winning his nomination, he appears on track to trounce President Donald Trump in the November general election.

JOE BIDEN 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ODDS
Biden is now priced as the odds-on favorite on most sites. You can find him listed from -137 to -170.

Trump is now around +150. He has not been an underdog like this throughout the entire election lifecycle.

How did we get here?

This isn’t complicated. Trump’s disapproval marks are at all-time highs. Many believe that he has mishandled the COVID-19 crisis. The economic downturn that resulted because of COVID-19 has obviously not helped matters and more recently there was great racial tension in the US.

If you need a more basic and visual representation of how the tides have turned on Trump, look no further than the Drudge Report front page. Once very pro-Trump, the immensely popular conservative site is now a bulletin board of negative takes on The Donald.

The “elect-ability” argument has really proven to be true for Biden. He’s viewed as a perfectly vanilla candidate. In an election cycle dominated by its partisanship, Biden is just inoffensive enough to appeal to voters who are burned out on acrimony.

CAN TRUMP TURN THE TIDE?
From a historical polling perspective, Biden could actually be a heavier favorite among oddsmakers.

We don’t know how COVID-19 will yet impact party conventions — but we should expect the typical bounce to be more muted. For a candidate who elicits strong emotions like Trump, this doesn’t help his dwindling re-election chances.

Ultimately, Trump’s best hope now is if COVID-19 infection numbers reduce and the economy recovers. Otherwise, Biden’s lead is becoming too much to overcome.

2020 US ELECTION ODDS (AS OF TUESDAY, JULY 7)

Candidatebet365 oddsBetway odds
Joe Biden (D)-170-152
Donald Trump (R)+150+130


Remember, betting markets only care about the final outcome. They're not crude polls. They take into account all the voter suppression, electoral college, and various shennanigans that Rethuglicans get up to to hold onto power.

Biden's now afraid to debate Trump apparently. No surprise to anyone who has watched him struggle to deliver even a prepared script let alone speak off the cuff. His "lead" will crumble to dust once more people see him afraid of Trump.
