    Again, so what if he is a communist? He still has to follow the orders of his boss who aint a communist. It is not a crime (yet) to be a communist or anything else in the US, so why should he be ashamed of it, let alone resign over it? As for his "racial views".. newsflash.. they are his views, right or wrong, truthful or not, there are far worse views by other people out there and even many public people, and yet we have yet to hear demands for their resignation...

    Sorry but this is just another "anti-Obama" action by the radical right, a part of the political sphere ripe with "odd views" that are as bad or worse as this guys.. where are the calls for their resignation?

    And he found them, and documented their origins in the Progressive movement of the time.

    Anyone not terribly ignorant of the history of the era involoved could hardly be surprised, since at that time, Communism was in vogue in the Academic callses and self-proclaimed Intelligentsia. This would be about the time that Lucile Ball, joined the Communist Party (on paper) to please her grandfather.

    By the way, the portraits of Lenin and Marx (from artwork that has been removed from the area but were previously displayed at the NBC offices,) as well as the hammer and sickle motifs representing labor were sort of giveaways.

    So, you'd be comfortable with a president appointing a Holocaust denying Ku Klux Klansman with Nazi sympathies to a position unchecked power, so long as he appeared to be obedient, right?

    Excellent point. A president has an obligation to appoint people who at minimum, believe in the basic foundations and principals of America. We are a Republic that respects the rule of law. We elect our leaders and Representatives by a vote of the people. We are an equal opportunity society that allows every person the right to pursue their happiness. We have a free enterprise, capitalist based economic system that rewards hard work and innovation, and gives everyone the opportunity to achieve their own financial success.

    We are not a communist or Marxist country, so anyone that believes that's what America should be, should not appointed to an influential positions within our government. We are a country that strives for equality for all, therefore should not appoint anyone with racist views into influential positions within our government. We are a country ruled by law, and therefore should not appoint anyone to an influential position within our government, that has displayed a blatant disregard for our law.

    Van Jones had no business being appointed by president Obama for any position within our government, because he has no respect for America, it's people, or it's foundations.

    The Repubs are stupid. Jones would be much more valuable to the opposition if he remains close to Prez Doofus. If he stays, his views can be projected onto Doofus at the appropriate time. If he resigns now, he and his views will be inconsequential by the time they could be used to effect.

    Considering communism is antithetical to the Constitution, and public servants take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, yeah, it's a potential problem.

    But the bigger problem is his being a Truther whackadoodle.

    You, no doubt, would be one of the first to swoop in to denounce a Birther, so you're displaying your typical "Centrism" yet again.
