With the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS), the civilized world has looked on in horror as ancient monuments and museums have been destroyed and looted.

The cultural heritage of the region has been erased by ISIS fighters as they swept through Iraq and Syria.

If that sounds like what the progressive left and the so-called “Social Justice Warriors” with the help of the liberal mainstream media want to do in America – it’s not by accident.

Although it may have looked to some like the mindless, random vandalism by an invading army, there is a purpose behind what is actually a deliberate plan

ISIS employs special ‘settlement’ battalions to select targets so it can eliminate the historic identity of the culture and civilization that existed there, leaving a blank page on which to carve its own philosophies and culture.

So when media figures on CNN and MSNBC not only report approvingly the eradication of an important era of America’s history – the practice of slavery and the struggle to end it, but actively call for the destruction of any aspect of history that runs contrary to the “progressive” ideology, it becomes almost impossible to tell the difference between America’s Left and ISIS.

Now, an editorial in VICE Magazine has gone far beyond merely wanting to tear down statues of long dead generals of the Civil War and called for the destruction of Mount Rushmore.

The massive granite sculpture of four presidents – Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt – is one of the nation’s most sacred of secular monuments, but to writer Wilbert Cooper, it needs to be blown up.

Unfortunately for Cooper – and a little embarrassing for the magazine, the article,

“Let’s Blow Up Mount Rushmore” was published even as Islamic terrorists drove a van into pedestrians in Barcelona killing a dozen people, including an America tourist, and injuring more than 100 others.

Later in the day authorities in Finland shot a Moroccan migrant and arrested four others after two people were murdered and another eight injured in what the police called “mass knife attacks.”

In light of those news events, VICE Magazine’s took down Cooper’s original article advocating “blowing up” Mount Rushmore and printed a statement disavowing violence.

“Editor’s note: The headline and URL of this story have been updated. We do not condone violence in any shape or form, and the use of “blow up” in the original headline as a rhetorical device was misguided and insensitive. We apologize for the error.”

The article was edited – now, VICE only wants to “Get Rid of Mount Rushmore.”

It doesn’t suggest a gentler method of wiping the sculpted faces of the four presidents on Mount Rushmore from history – one that doesn’t include TNT.

When the movement to remove the flag of the Confederacy became a mania following the murder of nine members of a black church by a white supremacist, conservatives warned that the SJW and progressive Lefts would not be satisfied, but would soon start targeting other symbols.

They were called paranoid by politicians and the media.

But now, calls for the removal and destruction of statues have widened to include all symbols of the history and ideals of the United States.

Cowed mayors and city councils, governors and business owners have capitulated – some within hours, when faced with the demands of the SJWs.

Six Flags, the amusement park company named after the six flags that have flown over Texas, proudly announced that it would not remove the Confederate flag from its display and logo, but only hours later, folded under pressure and acquiesced.

The list of things that offend the Left is long – Mount Rushmore is only the beginning.

Statues and monuments honoring slave owners Washington and Jefferson, grave markers of Confederate soldiers, crosses in cemeteries all stand in the line of fire.

And then… is the Constitution next?
