Van Jones… the anarchist.

Glenn Beck is awesome and totally kicks arse.

On August 11, on Faux News, he claimed that some law-talking guy called Van Jones “was a black nationalist. He came out an anarchist and a communist. He then found the green movement was the new red. And now, he’s our green jobs czar. Why is there so much money from the green movement, fund for public interest?”

Terrific questions Glenn. As for Van Jones, he’s a friend of the trees, the birds and the bees.

And Communists! A boofhead writes to a US newspaper:

The most disgusting evidence of President Obama’s lack of respect for America is his appointment of Van Jones as his “green jobs” czar.

Here’s how the East Bay Express newspaper described the “green jobs czar’s” background in a 2005 profile [The New Face of Environmentalism, Eliza Strickland, November 2, 2005]:

“Jones had planned to move to Washington, D.C., and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, ‘I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. ‘I spent the next 10 years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.’ In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. . . . ‘By August, I was a communist’.”

Now he’s a member of the Obama administration, one of the “czars” appointed by Obama who reports only to Obama and who, therefore, never had to withstand the rigors of a Senate confirmation process.

These are dangerous times. We’ve always known that communists were committed to the destruction of America. It would appear that they have the ultimate ally in the White House.

Not any more.

The Resignation of Van Jones: An Obama Political Achilles Heel, Exposed, Foster Kamer, Gawker, September 6, 2009:

Apparently, all that needs to happen to provoke a White House Administration official’s resignation is: a bunch of blowhards and crazies find something someone once said that was once extreme. Fixate, extrapolate, instigate, bring mainstream. And Van Jones resigned yesterday…

Still can’t find any evidence Van Jones was an anarchist but — tho’, by his own confession, he read far too many books.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2024 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
