GOP Governor Slams Biden Fireworks Ban, Calls it ‘Political Payback’

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem slammed the Biden administration for canceling what would have been an amazing and patriotic fireworks display at Mount Rushmore. Last year, while America grappled with COVID-19, marked the first time in over a decade that a Fourth of July display occurred at the monument.

Fox News reports:

“We’re disappointed there won’t be fireworks here this year. At the last minute, when President Biden came into office, the National Park Service pulled our permit to host the fireworks,” Noem told Fox News in an exclusive interview at the base of Mount Rushmore.

Noem believes the decision to pull the permit was politically motivated and a punishment for last year’s celebration.

“Our belief is truly that it was political. I believe that Biden administration pulled the fireworks from us to be punitive. They did not like us hosting it last year in the middle of COVID. They did not like the fact that President Trump was here celebrating with us, and that they had the ability to stop us from doing it this year. And they’re doing it for arbitrary reasons,” explained Noem, who was elected governor in 2018 after serving four terms in the United State House of Representatives.

“They don’t want to celebrate America by honoring these founders on our mountain that led our country through challenging times,” she said. “They have been taking down monuments across this country, and South Dakota has stood here and proudly held up our former leaders, recognizing that we can learn everything from everybody in the past that has led us. We never once said they were perfect, but we did say they were important to the foundation of this country, our freedoms and the constitution that still keeps America special.

While fireworks won’t be happening on the federal land where Mount Rushmore sits, the nation’s capital will host one of the largest fireworks displays in the country.

If it’s not racist or transgendered, they want nothing to do with it.

Indeed!. My take is that Biden is so petty, he doesn’t want fireworks at Mt Rushmore (an amazing place by the way) to upstage the fireworks in the filthy streets of D.C.

Dementia Joe had nothing to do with it–he can’t even spell Rushmore anymore. This is Obama and the coup crowd who are likely planning on when to terminate 4th of July celebrations as a White Supremacist Holiday. You can bet it’s on their agenda.

In fairness, I’m sure that ChiCom Joe would cancel celebrations everywhere if it could but the country is not yet sufficiently indoctrinated.

Since DC, Westpoint, NYC, New Orlean, Miami, and just about every single city in the USA had their fireworks televised, can the state of SD sue Biden for singling out Mt. Rushmore and the ONLY place banned? Seems someone could calculate how much the state on tourism over the long weekend by not being able to put on that promised show. If you can’t touch the Biden’s admin. with patriotism, perhaps you can through the pocketbook.

Biden is the most un American President ever. This is typical behavior for a democrat, nothing is too low for them.

She should have gone ahead and disregarded his order and let him come back after South Dakota.
