Ex-NBA Star Doesn’t Want You to Say Mt. Rushmore

16

Taking down statues and changing names to erase American history has become the left’s daily dose of cancel culture. Last week, Jalen Rose suggested changing the name Mount Rushmore because he thinks it’s offensive.

Breitbart reported on ESPN sports analyst Jalen Rose’s comment about Mt. Rushmore, including his Twitter video that shows him suggesting to stop saying Mt. Rushmore because “it’s offensive.” Rose tweeted with his video: “Here’s why using Mount Rushmore to define greatness should be retired immediately.”

In the video, Rose talks about Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Indians changing their names for being offensive. He says he wants to continue to challenge himself and his fans to “retire using Mt. Rushmore” because that name should be “offensive to all of us.”

Rose added that Mt. Rushmore’s name should be especially offensive to native Americans because it was their land that was stolen from them and 25 years later four American presidents were put on the top while dead bodies were buried under it.

This video of Rose, a former NBA star and a native of Detroit (MI), led conservatives to question his rhetoric. Breitbart wasn’t sure whether Rose spoke metaphorically or he literally believed bodies of native Americans were buried under Mt. Rushmore. Warner Todd Huston added the brief historical background of Mt. Rushmore as a place of worship by the natives, not a burial ground, before white Americans seized it.

Rose’s comments fall in line with the left’s political agenda to erase American history by banning, renaming, and even physically destroying the historical and cultural heritage of the country. Fox News noted that leftist network CNN has been critical of Mount Rushmore and has called it “monument of two slave-owners.” In 2017, The Federalist published a list of 16 famous American monuments that liberals want to tear down. Mount Rushmore was the third name on the list.

Jalen Rose has not been fanatically militant about his liberal views but is not entirely new to left-wing rhetoric instigating race and ethnicity in political talk. Earlier this year, Bobby Burack published an article in OutKick about how ESPN retaliated against anchor Sage Steele for expressing politically incorrect views while allowing liberals to get away with their views.

Among the listed ESPN celebrities was Jalen Rose who condemned the police for shooting Jacob Blake, the wanted felon in Wisconsin whose shooting sparked the BLM riots in Kenosha, culminating in the Kyle Rittenhouse saga. Rose had incorrectly spoken of Jacob Blake and stated that police shot and killed Blake—while Blake was only injured in the shooting.

    Those on Mt Rushmore were fighters for our freedoms, and the greatness of the USA! You take away all those who have been immortalized by statues, and this Country of ours would not exist!

    I love my Indian Brothers snd sisters! They played a great role in the history of this Country, but they also fought constantly with each other, tribe against tribe!

    What is more offensive for a black man who works on tv NOT to express his offense to black-on-black crime? There is nothing more offensive than for someone in Jalen Rose’s position of public prominence to kowtow to the Marxists who are the tools of the Illuminati. Jalen is spewing the Illuminati rhetoric of divide and conquer. The Redskins and Indians are a salute to our National Heritage. why do you think that the leftists and people like Jalen want to swash it? They hate America. They hate Americans. Jalen wants to tell people who have the inalienable right to free speech what to say. You do not speak for the American people. You speak for those who wish to destroy our country. You are part of the conspiracy to overthrow the US Constitution, either wittingly or unwittingly. You are a tool of the Illuminati. Used to bludgeon your own people out of their freedoms. Shame on you. The CCP is proud of you.

    You have been living high on the hog since you were a teenager because of your God given talent to dribble and shoot a basketball. If you don’t like what you see move to another country.
    No one needs your derogatory comments about Mt. Rushmore, a national treasure.
    We gave you a pass when you called time out during the NCAA basketball championship game (a time out you did not have) but not this time
    Stick to BB and perhaps you might read about those Presidents before making your comments.
