Target backed group calling for demilitarization, shutdown of Mt. Rushmore as ‘symbol of white supremacy’ – report

The “woke” rot runs deep at Target with the backlash against the retail giant’s marketing of transgenderism and homosexuality leading researchers to closely examine the company’s support of other left-wing causes and what they are finding can only be described as disturbing.

Fox News Digital is one of the news organizations digging into Target’s mission to support radical Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives that really took off after the 2020 racial unrest ignited by the death of career criminal and drug addict George Floyd, and has found that the company’s support of “historically marginalized groups” has extended into the funding of “organizations with far-left and blatantly political agendas” through its nonprofit arm.

Among the findings revealed in a bombshell report is that the foundation which has been directed by “senior corporate treasures” provided funding to a group calling for the shutdown and handover of U.S. sovereign land including Mount Rushmore, one of the nation’s most treasured and iconic monuments which it identifies as an “international symbol of White supremacy” and expressed hostile views toward the “violent” U.S. armed forces which it wants to see demilitarized.

According to Fox News Digital, “The Target Foundation’s webpage reflected that it funded the NDN Collective in 2022, a South Dakota-based nonprofit with a revenue stream that has reached as high as $50M+, according to its 2021 tax filing. NDN operates with a ‘racial equity lens’ and is “dedicated to building Indigenous power [t]hrough organizing, activism, philanthropy, grantmaking… and narrative change.”

NDN calls for America to surrender its public land as a part of its “LANDBACK” campaign.

“The closure of Mount Rushmore, return of that land and all public lands in the Black Hills, South Dakota is our cornerstone battle,” the group said. “Not only does Mount Rushmore sit in the heart of the sacred Black Hills, but it is an international symbol of White supremacy and colonization. To truly dismantle white supremacy and systems of oppression, we have to go back to the roots. Which, for us, is putting Indigenous Lands back in Indigenous hands.”

“LANDBACK also supports Israel giving up its Jewish character by opening the floodgates to those who identify as Palestinian refugees. After Israel gave up the Gaza Strip for peace in 2005 under pressure from the Bush administration, the former Israeli territory became what some analysts call a “missile launch pad” that is operated and controlled by the Hamas terror group,” Fox News Digital reported. “On that note, LANDBACK also uses a phrase which has long been interpreted by some as a genocide call for the elimination of the Jewish state.”

The organization also holds hostile views toward the U.S. military and calls for demilitarization as pointed out by Fox News Digital.

“[T]he U.S. military is in the explicit business of taking land away from communities all around the world and using their presence on their land to carry out their own agenda for the inhabitants of that area. Violence is fundamental for the U.S. to maintain its presence, and the military is how they establish dominance domestically and internationally, wherever they may be,” the group states.

“The origin of the U.S. military and police is rooted in the establishment of informal militias composed of newly arrived settlers looking to make money and own land,” NDN said “The purpose of these informal militias however was not to keep the police or protect citizens, but to clear the land of as many Natives as possible by killing indiscriminately, and catching runaway enslaved Africans.”

“NDN identifies as ‘intersectional,’ which is an idea coined by a critical race theorist, Kimberlé Crenshaw, holding that America is inborn with structurally racist and misogynistic systems, and they can intersect upon an individual to form numerous layers of persecution. By joining forces with other oppressed groups, NDN hopes to move towards ‘liberation,'” according to the outlet.

Few symbols are as hated by the cultural insurrectionist left as Mount Rushmore, the tribute to four of America’s greatest presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt who are carved into the granite face of the mountain, all of whom have had their statues defaced and toppled by leftist mobs since the George Floyd “summer of love” and who have all been smeared as racists and slaveowners.
