Obama administration is finding itself in a most unpleasant situation and the results are going to be devastating. You may be aware that Obama has garnered interest from many left of center individuals with his appointment of numerous czars. Beyond czars being unconstitutional as they bypass Senate confirmation hearings, these czars have a more radical past than Obama himself and that should tell you something. Move out Jeremiah Wright, out of the way Bill Ayers, here comes Van Jones.
We first learned about Van Jones from Glenn Beck the popular conservative host on Fox News. Incidentally the discovery of Van Jones is accidental and most of the blame can go on the Obama administration, something I am sure they are now regretting. It all began after Beck accused Obama of being a racist, after Obama accused Cambridge police of acting “stupidly” involving an incident with his friend and professor, Robert Gates Jr. Shortly after, Beck found himself under the attack by a group called Color of Change – a very subtle non race baiting name with a dubious mission statement of “strengthen Black America's political voice” – and noticed his advertisers pulling out. He dug deeper and discovered that CoC was co-founded by Van Jones and someone he recognized as one of the Green Job Czars. Thinking there could be a deeper connection, Beck fully explored Van Jones’ past and stumbled upon a radical powder keg!
Van Jones at one time or another was :
- Black Nationalist
According to NewsBusters Van Jones is using his past and radicalized agenda to push an agenda harnessing his new powerful government VISITA UNIVISION.COM PARA MAS INFORMACION:
I think it’s pretty instructive what his past is...it’s the same sort of philosophy, the idea that government ought to be reordering society in accordance with some utopian vision that failed with communism and socialism, and will fail with this green jobs idea.
If you think this all sounds scary and wondering how someone like this could have possibly, ever, in a million years ended up in a VISITA UNIVISION.COM PARA MAS INFORMACION to set policy, use taxpayer money and wield tremendous power then unfortunately it gets worse.
Last week, a video emerged of Van Jones in a Berkeley, calling Republicans assholes, because that was the best explanation he could muster as to how Republicans continued to push legislation despite their dwindling numbers. Watch the entire video, there is a very amusing moment when a brave Berkeley student suggests that some of Van Jones’ policies sound an awful lot like Marxist propaganda, gee, really? After the uproarious laughter died down, he finally countered the question by asking “how is that capitalism working out for you?”. Nice. Granted he was not employed by the “American people” just yet, but because this took place one month before we can probably assume that he already discussed this with Obama. Van Jones issued a public analogy as the “Republicans are assholes” comment went viral and brought the Communist into the public spotlight.
This is where it got really ugly.
A well known blogger and a site I visit regularly, Gateway Pundit, somehow managed to discover Van Jones was at one point (or still is) a ‘9/11 Truther’ suggesting that he believes our government was involved in the worst terrorist attack on this nation’s history. As this story was gaining steam, the administration within hours released a statement suggesting that “Jones may have signed some petition in 2004, but it did not reflect his true opinion”. Too bad for Jones, Gateway Pundit found Jones’ signature on a 2002 petition! A big difference as this suggests a deep seated hate of the Bush administration and not a dissatisfaction with the 9/11 Commission. In conclusion, we have a deeply partisan conspiracy nut in one of the highest levels of government. Fantastic.
While many can shrug off his comment about Republicans, his involvement with the ‘Truthers’ will not and cannot be ignored. Worse still, it raises three very important questions.
- Does Obama himself subscribe to the 9-11 conspiracy theories and is he a Truther himself?
- If Obama is not Truther, what kind of scrutiny is applied to these czars and how can he justify employing Van Jones?
- How many other Czars have an equally radical past?
America voted for a man whose past, friends, relationships and involvements were radicalized, dubious and scary. So what is more amusing? American voters reaping what they sow or the guy appointed to clean up America polluting it even further? You decide.
