obama czar and admitted communist Van Jones calling Republicans A-holes

Did you folks see this on Hannity last night? Funny how this was recorded Feb 11th and then he gets appointed as one of obama's czars. This is an example of the mentality of the people in this administration. Man, I can't wait until 2010. That will mark the beginning to the end of obammy's oppression.

Quote:
President Obama's "green jobs" adviser, who is facing criticism for his racy comments and self-described communist past, could become a liability for the White House as it tries to convince Americans it has no interest in large-scale government intervention through health care reform and other priorities.

Van Jones apologized Wednesday night for the "offensive words" he uttered in February when he called Republicans "assholes." He said the remarks "do not reflect the views of this administration" and its bipartisan aims.

But the statements just scratch the surface of Jones' past commentary. A "9/11 truther," Jones signed a statement in 2004 calling for then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and others to launch an investigation into evidence that "suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur."

He also has leaned on racially charged language, pointing the finger at ‚€œwhite polluters and the white environmentalists" for "steering poison" to minority communities, as he makes the case for lifting up low-income and minority communities with better environmental policy

A declared "communist" during the 1990s, Jones once associated with a group that looked to Mao Zedong as an inspiration.

Jones' radical nature is reminiscent of associations noted during the presidential campaign, when then-Sen. Barack Obama doggedly fended off claims that he was tied to radicals and overzealous activists.

But with now-President Obama entering the perhaps trickiest phase of his young presidency -- building the kind of consensus around health care reform that President Clinton could not -- a divisive figure could prove disfiguring.

"In this environment, I think the Obama administration should be very careful of its dealings with anybody who can be labeled communist accurately," said Christopher C. Hull, an adjunct government professor at Georgetown University who runs the public affairs firm Issue Management.

"That's just going to play to the political sensibility that those on the right have that the Obama administration is socialist, literally socialist. ... It is unwise to bring in people who actually do label themselves socialist or communist."

Jones has mellowed considerably since the '90s. In some respects, he is about as mainstream as environmentalists come -- with recognition pouring down from high places over the past few years.

He's won plaudits from former Vice President Al Gore, who declared, "I love Van Jones," in an interview with The New Yorker.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio penned the write-up on Jones when the presidential adviser was featured in Time magazine's 100 "Most Influential People."

"Steadily -- by redefining green -- Jones is making sure that our planet and our people will not just survive but also thrive in a clean-energy economy," DiCaprio wrote.

Jones was also named one of the magazine's "Heroes of the Environment 2008." He's earned a slew of other recognitions from other publications and institutions. He was even named one of Salon.com's "Sexiest Men Living" in late 2008.

Plus he's the author of the 2008 New York Times best-seller, "The Green Collar Economy."

Now a member of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, his book's central premise is that environmentalism can lift up the economy and lift up low-income Americans.

He is the founder of Green for All, which focuses on creating green jobs in poor areas. He helped the city of Oakland pass a "green jobs corps" program in 2007. Green jobs is also one platform of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which he co-founded in 1996.

He also co-founded Color of Change, an advocacy group that focuses on black issues, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Jones' history has drifted between mainstream activism surrounding issues of race, poverty and the environment, and activity he has described as "revolutionary."

Originally from Tennessee, Jones graduated from Yale Law School in 1993. But his life took a turn after he was swept up in arrests during a rally following the Rodney King verdict.

Jones has claimed he was monitoring police activity at the time, but that he met people in jail who changed his thinking.

"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,'" he said in a 2005 interview with the East Bay Express. Jones told the newspaper he stayed in San Francisco, and for the next 10 years worked with a lot of the people he met in jail. Months after the King verdict came down, Jones said, "I was a communist."
At the time he became involved with a group called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), which described itself as committed to Marxist and Leninist ideas. He also started putting pressure on police in San Francisco, monitoring and drawing attention to allegations of police brutality. He was quoted accusing the police department of "killing black people."
He became a vocal critic of the federal government during the Bush administration. He and groups he was associated with assailed "U.S. imperialism" after the Sept. 11 attacks and called the assumption that an Arab group was responsible a "rush to judgment." He later co-signed the petition calling for an investigation into government involvement in the attacks.
For conservative critics, he has -- as Hull warned -- served as a ready target.

"You can't nominate all of these czars ... and then say well you know, 'I'm not responsible for all these people,'" said conservative commentator Ann Coulter. "People will start to blame Obama."

The White House has voiced great confidence in Jones, announcing in March that the "green jobs visionary" would in his new role advance the goal of improving energy efficiency and tapping renewable resources.

He has stated in the past that he will use the green movement as his tool to push forward his agenda.

I'll grant him this, he is an asshole. And the problem with assholes like him (and BHO) is that they fail to realize that dicks like me don't like to be controlled for their agenda, and while the pussies will let them get by with shitting all over them, dicks don't like to be shit on. So when you have a controlling asshole in the room, shitting on the pussies, the dicks will begin fucking the assholes to show that we are the ones that are in control, while the pussies do nothing but whine.

This should have been the response...

The green movement bears watching.

You know who has taken the green movement and is running with it? Gorbachev. An avowed communist. And the UN is headed by a communist, and always has been since inception.

Quote:
Mikhail Gorbachev, former Russian president, founder of the Gorbachev Foundation and head of Green Cross International, claims the environment crisis is the cornerstone of the new world order. He is also co-author, along with Steven Rockefeller, of the United Nations Earth Charter.

The Earth Charter is a kind of environmental Ten Commandments intended to become a universally adopted creed that will prepare the world's children to accept the necessity of world government to save the planet.

At Gorbachev's State of the World Forum in 1995, philosopher and author Sam Keen told the gathering elites that the ecological crisis is the population crisis, while urging them to promote sexuality, contraception and abortion.
So, it's another form of wealth redistribution/socialism. And the new world order claims are extremely disturbing.

While I do agree that we need to clean up pollution and so on, and leave the plant better than we found it for our kids, the green movement is headed in another direction - oppressive regulation, which will eventually lead to wealth redistribution. No wonder obama is all for this, and surrounds himself with these kinds of radicals.

And who the hell is going to buy all of these green products? The 10% unemployed? The americans employed by these new, green jobs? So by going green we create a few new jobs creating batteries and windmills and electric cars. Can an economy really be boosted by green technology? Hell, can an economy be built on all of this new, expensive green crap? I don't see it.

So the next time you hear something about "something that needs to happen to be green" take it with a grain of salt.

Mike,

Research Spain and their green movement. I can't remember the exact figure, but each 'green job' created cost around $750,000. They also have unemployment nearing 20%.
