    I think he'll get fired for being a truther. That's just not acceptable for his position.

    He shoulda never been appointed. It's not like his opinion is some kind of secret.

    He doesn't sound like a communist any more.

    In the book, Jones contended that invention and investment will take us out of a pollution-based grey economy and into a healthy new green economy.[28] Jones wrote:

    [W]e are entering an era during which our very survival will demand invention and innovation on a scale never before seen in the history of human civilization. Only the business community has the requisite skills, experience, and capital to meet that need. On that score, neither government nor the nonprofit and voluntary sectors can compete, not even remotely.

    So in the end, our success and survival as a species are largely and directly tied to the new eco-entrepreneurs — and the success and survival of their enterprises. Since almost all of the needed eco-technologies are likely to come from the private sector, civic leaders and voters should do all that can be done to help green business leaders succeed. That means, in large part, electing leaders who will pass bills to aid them. We cannot realistically proceed without a strong alliance between the best of the business world —and everyone else.

    Or for any human being. What a worthless piece of ****.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I'm still waiting for someone on the left to address this post:

    What we really need to be talking about, are the other facts about this man, such as:

    1. He is a communist.
    2. He believes white people have been poisoning black people.
    3. He believes white people have been spraying poison on migrant workers.
    4. He led the fight to free a convicted cop killer.
    5. He believes in total wealth redistribution.
    6. He's a 9/11 truther that believes that our government allowed the attacks of 9/11.
    7. He believes in the total transformation of America's agricultural system.

    These are the things that we should be talking about, not the fact that he's a another classless liberal... Those are a dime a dozen.

    But being a communist, accusing white people of poisoning blacks and immigrants, and lobbying for a cop killer to be released is A-OK with Obama.

    Got anything on that 2 year prison stint yet??
    Guess I misheard what was reported. Ear damage from the 5"/38. Did find this though on Beck's website:

    Green Jobs Czar - Van Jones
    Title: Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality
    Salary: unknown
    Reports to: Head of Council on Environmental Quality Nancy Sutley
    Appointed: March 2009
    Agency or department that might have handled similar issues: Environmental Protection Agency; Labor
    • Will focus on environmentally-friendly employment within the administration and boost support for the idea nationwide
    • Rose from near obscurity in the Oakland, Calif., grassroots organizing scene to the leader of a national movement to spur the green economy.
    • Founded Green For All, an organization focused on creating green jobs in impoverished areas
    • Also co-founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Color of Change, which includes Bay Area PoliceWatch, a group devoted to "protect[ing] the community from police misconduct"
    • Published New York Times best-seller The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems, in October 2008
    • Started career as a prison-reform advocate in Oakland, Calif., lobbying for reform of the juvenile justice system and youth-violence prevention programs
    • Has law degree from Yale
    • 2007: worked on the Green Jobs Act with then-Rep. Hilda Solis (D-Calif.), who co-sponsored the bill in the House
    • 1993: was arrested at the Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of cops in the Rodney King beating. "I was arrested simply for being a police observer," says Jones, who had just graduated from Yale Law School and was working with the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco.
    • 1999: was arrested in the 1999 Seattle protests against the World Trade Organization
    • Excerpt from a Nov. 2005 interview in the East Bay Express:
    Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, 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 ten 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. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist." In 1994, the young activists formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. They protested police brutality and got arrested for crashing through police barricades. In 1996, Jones decided to launch his own operation, which he named the Ella Baker Center after an unsung hero of the civil-rights movement.

    He seems to hate the US enough to revolutionize it so why is he on the taxpayers dime?
    Thank you
