Extreme white wing of the Republican Party shows its true colors in Rapid City

Right to life? Not if you're non-white in South Dakota.

In the early twentieth century after President Theodore Roosevelt invited Booker T. Washington to the White House white supremacists began erecting statuary commemorating and celebrating treason in the United States. Mount Rushmore in occupied South Dakota is the state's premier example of white supremacist ideology. Its sculptor was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Confederate flags routinely fly in Rapid City showing support for racism in like-minded states, South Carolina and Mississippi. Many more come out during the Sturgis Rally.

43 presidential statues already sit or stand on corners downtown Rapid City and the City of Presidents Foundation leaders want to focus on the message it will send to visitors without invoking the town's long history of bigotry. Fact is: most of the downtown statues depict slave owners, at least one child rapist, war criminals and figures in history that ordered the murders of American Indians. Calling him a rapist some earth haters are demanding the removal of Rapid City's statue of Bill Clinton.

Barack Hussein Obama will join Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter as US presidents who have won the Nobel Prize for Peace.

Charles Hypo Kovach "Ugliest statue I have ever seen"

Eileen Juso Craig "Yuck!

Devin Pauley "Why not put it on the corner of east north street and north lacrosse?"

Gary Tidd "Offensive"

Michael Whitcher "Worst president ever. Set us back 60 yrs in race relations."

Don Hantzsche "{Disgraceful did more to set this country back then any President of modern times."

Larry Enright "Yyyaaaayyyyyyyyyy! The greatest failure in American politics ever is now a statue. I am Offended and like all his half brothers of color in the south Offended by every piece of history there, I am gonna see to its removal. I find him an offensive presence. He hates white men and believes all of us to be the perpetrators of his black half brothers’ problems. #offendedbyobama"

Carl Palmer "Waisted [sic] money please don’t call me a bigot or racist I did 30 years in the Navy he was a disgrace and I served all the way back to Nixon he does not deserve crap."

Tina Tines "Kok if ODUMBA is the daddy we know who aint the mama."

Think these are bad? Over a thousand comments at the teevee stations KOTA, KNBN and KEVN are just as hideous and most even worse than the ones posted at the Rapid City Journal.
