I’ll tell you one nice thing about all these stupid protests and whatnot, is seeing a lot of these communist radicals getting arrested.
The latest one to go down is the man who organized and led the blockade of President Trump’s 4th of July celebration.
And he’s a doozy…
You can watch the video below:
The man’s name is Nick Tilsen, and his goal in shutting down the road was to send the message that Mount Rushmore is a symbol of white supremacy and racial injustice in this country and that the four faces carved on that mountain are the four faces of colonizers who have committed genocide on Indigenous people.
I mean, he just described Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and Jerry Nadler and the entire Democrat Party.
One of the leaders of the protest that shut down the highway to Mount Rushmore last Friday prior to President Donald Trump’s Fourth of July celebration at the monument is facing five criminal charges.
On Monday, Nick Tilsen was charged with second-degree robbery and simple assault for allegedly stealing a shield and assaulting a law enforcement officer, the Rapid City Journal reported.
The Porcupine resident and member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe is also charged with three misdemeanors for impeding a highway, unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct.
If he is convicted, Tilsen faces up to 12 years in prison — 10 years for the robbery charge and two years for the simple assault.
The charges at the Pennington County Courthouse in Rapid City, South Dakota, come days after 150 demonstrators used vans and their bodies to shut down the road and a checkpoint to Mount Rushmore to protest the president’s visit to the monument.
Tilsen was released on Monday afternoon after posting his $2,000 bond.
His lawyer and family say that Tilsen was targeted because “he’s been identified as someone who had a leadership role.”
Well, yeah, because he giving interviews to the media, talking about it.?
The bottom line is that these people hate our American way of life and our history and they will do everything in their power to “fundamentally transform” the United States…and we can never allow that happen.
