Communist Leaves Post, Removed From Power: That's a headline you used to wake up and see and think, "good, some third world country is finally getting their act together." Sadly, today it is a headline that describes the United States. The president's green jobs "czar", an exposed Communist, Marxist, environmental extremist, and 9/11 truther, has resigned under pressure from... well, not the mainstream media. The next word the New York Times writes about it will be their first. Better prepare for the Fairness Doctrine. This is the exact kind of information that the "most transparent administration ever" wishes it could hide from the public.
"Red" Van Jones has gone quietly into the good night. On a holiday weekend. Shhhhh.
No word if their sister station, MSNDNC, has added him to their primetime line-up of talk shows yet. He'd fit nicely between Matthews and Olbermann, don't you think? I'm sure Bill Maher will have him as a guest soon enough so he can play the victim. "It was a racist witch hunt led by redneck teabaggers!" Unlike the witch hunts based on rumors and innuendo which liberals usually prefer (see Sarah Palin).
President Obama's environmental adviser Van Jones resigned from his post late Saturday evening after he came under fire for a series of inflammatory statements he made about Republicans, the White House said early Sunday morning.
Jones, Obama's green jobs "czar," was caught on tape in an expletive-packed rant, directly attacking Republicans in the Senate who he said abused their majority position in the past to push legislation through. He told Politico after the statements were released that the comments were "inappropriate" and "offensive."
Oddly enough, no major media outlets took the lead on this story or even reported it until now. It was all the work of conservative bloggers and Glenn Beck. Yes, that Glenn Beck. The one Van Jones tried to silence by leading a boycott of his advertisers. Guess we know who won that round. But I would like to give credit to Color for Change for helping change Washington by removing a radical from the White House, however unintentional. Think a beer summit with Van Jones, Obama, and Glenn Beck is out of the question? That's too bad, because Beck could drink Beck's. And Van Jones could drink sour milk.
How many radicals does Obama have to distance himself from before the people start to question his ideas for the nation? Rev. Wright was an isolated incident. Bill Ayers was an isolated incident. Henry Gates was an isolated incident. When are we allowed to call it a pattern? And as Pundit & Pundette asks, how does someone like this even get White House security clearance? Makes you wonder what it takes to get rejected. A body under the floorboards?
Gateway Pundit has the best and worst of the Van Jones' Diaries. It's certainly worth a look to appreciate just how far out of the mainstream his beliefs were. Of course, the biggest problem with czars is they have executive authority without Congressional oversight. If they had to be confirmed by the Senate, as the president's cabinet does, we would have learned of this a long time ago.
Exit question: Think the POTUS will bring up green jobs during his school speech on Tuesday? If so, he might want to speak to the movement's Marxist origins, and why he selected Van Jones to be in charge of it. Aren't hammers and sickles pretty? I can see the kiddos coloring some now.
