Glenn Beck exposed Barack Obama’s radical Green Czar last night on his show:
The radical Van Jones, who is a close advisor to Obama, is behind the Glenn Beck boycott.
The LA Times reported:
Glenn Beck used his popular Fox News show this afternoon to attack the background of Van Jones, a White House environmental advisor who co-founded an African American political advocacy group that organized an advertising boycott of his program.
During his 2 p.m. PDT show, Beck did not address the boycott spearheaded by Color of Change to protest the talk show host’s remark last month that he believes President Obama is “a racist.”
Instead, he spent a large share of his program suggesting that Jones, who co-founded Color of Change in 2005, is a radical. Jones now serves as a special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
During a six-minute biographical profile, set to ominous music, Beck said Jones was twice arrested for political protests and has described himself as a “rowdy black nationalist.” The talk show host cast the piece as part of a broader examination of Obama’s “czars,” special advisers to the president who “don’t answer to anybody.”
“Why is it that such a committed revolutionary has made it so high into the Obama administration as one of his chief advisers?” Beck asked.
In 1992, during the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles, Jones was arrested and jailed for his role in the protest. He said of his time in prison, “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.’ 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 1994 the group of activists Van Jones was involved with Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a collective which “dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia”.
More… David Horowitz has more on Obama’s communist green advisor.
UPDATE 2: New Zeal has much more on Van Jones including this:
There you have it-sextegenarian Maoists, unforfilled Weathermen, socialists and communists are pushing their agenda in the White House through a mouthpiece they have promoted and nurtured over many years.
“Green Jobs” is a cover for increased socialization of the US economy-driven by a man who only seven years ago was an ultra militant San Francisco street communist.
Now hopefully, you have more understanding as to why Van Jones (and Barack Obama) hold the positions they do today.
UPDATE 3: New Zeal also has this but the whole posting is a must read:
Seven years ago Van Jones was a San Francisco hardcore Alinskyite street communist. After hooking up with the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, Democratic Socialists of America, former ’60s Maoists, Weather Underground supporters and Demos he managed to land a job in the White House.
Twenty two years ago Barack Obama was a Chicago Alinskyite “community organiser”. After hooking up with the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, Democratic Socialists of America, former ’60s Maoists, Weather Underground supporters and Demos he managed to land a job in the White House.
Could there be a connection?
