  • Greg Poirier

    Like everything else ‘american’, the Washington Monument is a two bit fake OBELISK. Atleast, the Vatican, Paris and London stole real obelisks from Egypt, which are made from a single piece of marble……..more american childish nonsense

  • Edgar Duran

    Where are the dumb atheists?

  • Jon Bell

    Freemason George Washington, the devil worshipper. No wonder, he had Hebrew Slaves. America was against God’s children from day 1.

    Come on! Tell about the fact that the monument was placed in the wrong location on purpose! And, they used darker stones on purpose after the civil war and they zipper jointed three sides of the monument most of the way up on purpose. Now they have to have Congress out there tucking mortar back in the joints every twenty years just so none of the stone will fall out of place and hit the tourists. As soon as we fix our government we are going to replace the monument with a single piece Geo-polymer monument and of course we will place it in the correct location, ON SQUARE!
