WATCH: ESPN Analyst Wants ‘Mount Rushmore’ Gone

(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Isn’t it great when sports commentators and analysts decide to lecture Americans on US history? ESPN analyst and former NBA player Jalen Rose has decided to mount an attack against Mount Rushmore because he finds the very idea of the monument to be offensive.

South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore honors four US presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln but Rose says the monument “to define greatness should be retired immediately.”

In a video shared on social media, Rose started by asking, “Why do you think Washington changed their name from Redskins?”

“I do a show and didn’t say that word for eight years,” Rose said. “Why? Because it’s offensive. What about the Cleveland Indians? Same thing. Why did they change the name? Because it’s offensive.”

Offensive to who, exactly? The only reason those teams changed their names is because their owners caved to the pressure of the woke radical left. Neither team is doing better financially because of the changes. Go woke, go broke.

Nonetheless, Rose continued, “I want to continue to challenge myself and to challenge you to do something. Can we retire using ‘Mount Rushmore’?

“That should be offensive to all of us, especially Native Americans, indigenous people who were the first people here before Christopher Columbus. That land was stolen from them when it was discovered that it contained gold.

“And 25 years later, to add insult to injury, four American presidents were put on what we call Mount Rushmore on the top of the dead bodies that [are] buried right underneath.”

For the record, there’s no evidence there are actually dead bodies buried underneath Mouth Rushmore. His comment is just typical leftist rhetoric meant to stir up the emotions of his followers.

Secondly, people like Rose love to pretend like white men just rode around massacring indigenous people and like white men were the only people in history to journey to new lands. Rose will conveniently never mention how much bloodshed took place among native American tribes before white people were even on the scene.

“Let’s stop using the term ‘Mount Rushmore’ when we’re talking about our favorite rappers, talking about our favorite movies, talking about our favorite players.

“I know you’re gonna see this video and I know you’re gonna take action,” Rose told those on Twitter who follow him.

Naturally, the response to Rose’s call to action were mixed. Some asserted that they agreed with Rose.

While others did not and pointed out that maybe he should stay in his lane.

One American who proudly disagreed with Rose’s assessment was South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem. The Republican posted a message for Rose in response to his video.

“The four men on Mount Rushmore were amazing, flawed American leaders who helped make America what it is today — the greatest country the world has ever known,” Noem tweeted.

“To the woke leftists obsessed with attacking these leaders, I’ve got news for you: not on my watch.”

It’s pretty hard for someone like Rose to dispute that America is the greatest country in the world as he sits in his ivory tower surrounded by millions of dollars lecturing the rest of us.

The four men memorialized on Mount Rushmore were flawed, just like the rest of us, but if it weren’t for them, Rose wouldn’t have had the incredible opportunities he’s had in his life.

Rose is too busy finding ways that he and others are “oppressed” to see the truth. Maybe he should just stick to sports.

  1. In honour of former President trump they should carve an enormous 100ft high anus with a long red tie flapping about below it. When children swing in the tie the anus opens and Trump speaks. It could be pre recorded messages from the Don, you know, the usual stuff; ‘I’m the greatest person the world has ever seen, the election was stolen, send even more money now’.

    • Why don’t we erect a 100 foot high cunt in honor of democrat women?
      You know, like Hillary, pelosi, AOC, kamala— that oozes putrid juices from the slit like the diseased emissions of vaginas used by democrats??

    • Odd comment from a obama Worshipper. Anus lovers unite around y’all’s hero Hussein obama for some reason.

  2. Personally, I think Rose would look good dangling from one of the “four’s” noses. It certainly would define the snotty SOB.

  3. The left is determined to implode America . If you believe that the bill passed in the Senate will help anyone except fill the corrupt’s pockets, your a very gullible person and the half plus Harris that voted for it are setting us up to be the slaves of government.

  4. Rose is one of the reasons professional sports has become what it is. He, Sharpe, Hill and their ilk are what happened to the woke espn and their dismal ratings. Espn apparently learned a little from their mistakes. Rose apparently didn’t learn a thing and still somehow thinks someone cares about his ignorance.

  5. He’s only upset because his hero the first gay potus Hussein Obama will never ever grace this wonderful monument in South Dakota.
    Trash like him give responsible Americans every reason to avoid ESPN and the other woke garbage invading the media .
