Greenpeace demonstrated their anti-American ways by attacking Mount Rushmore:
President Obama got his face on Mount Rushmore for more than an hour Wednesday morning.
Five rock climbers from Greenpeace scaled the national memorial to hang the 65-foot by 35-foot banner, which billowed next to Abraham Lincoln’s carved stone face.
The banner, a message to Obama, featured a partial portrait of the president with the message, "America honors leaders not politicians: Stop Global Warming."
Unveiled after 10 a.m., the wind-buffeted banner dangled on the mountain for more than an hour. Greenpeace photographed the banner shortly after it was unfurled and broadcast video of the demonstration live online.
Authorities were quickly alerted to the intrusion and arrested a dozen activists involved in the demonstration, memorial spokesman Nav Singh said.
"When you have individuals who are determined, who are equipped, who are organized, who are willing to do damage to government property, there’s not many systems that are fail-safe to that," he said.
The activists did damage some government property in the effort to gain access to a controlled area, Singh said in a statement late Wednesday.
