It lacks a big stick, and a declaration of its intentions... Aside from being scary badass.

That's not a random encounter, it's a prophecy. Once Mt Rushmore is declared an offensive unsafe space which need to be censored, the spirits of the founding fathers will possess it and end this terrible experiment of a country.

Thing is, it pretty much has been since it's inception for the local tribes as it was created on land that was stolen from them. SCOTUS even agreed and Congress has attempted to make restitution, which the tribes have refused to accept.

They were offered a very large lump sum of cash. Which they have refused to accept in the hopes that by not taking the money, their claim on the land remains "unresolved" and thus they still retain some kind of claim on that land. IIRC, it has been almost 40 years since the offer was made, and the money is still sitting in the US Treasury(as some kind of treasury bond/note no doubt) to this day.
