Video: Americans Don’t Know Why We Celebrate 4th of July, Think Jesse Ventura a Founding Father


Mark Dice

Mark Dice, famous for his “gotcha” videos, recently conducted man-on-the-street interviews in San Diego, asking everyday Americans basic questions about their country’s history. Among the questions Dice posed to passersby were: “Name a favorite founding father” and “Which country did we declare our independence from?”

The responses were disheartening, to say the least.

Most of those interviewed did not correct Dice when he facetiously said that America declared its independence “from China,” and that President Abe Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth, along with former WWF wrestler and Minnesota governor Jesse “The Body” Ventura, were founding fathers.
