President Obama's "green jobs czar" is co-founder of a black activist organization that has led a campaign prompting major advertisers to withdraw from Glenn Beck's top-rated Fox News Channel program.

In recent weeks, Beck has done several critical segments about Van Jones, who was appointed as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

-break-

Now Colors of Change, an activist organization seeking to "strengthen Black America's political voice" has led a furious campaign against Beck culminating in major companies such as Geico and Lawyers.com pulling their spots from the Fox News star's daily show. The group also says it has garnered about 75,000 signatories for an online petition against Beck to be sent to advertisers.

Van Jones and I have the same alma mater.

I never saw anyone serving Kool Aide there, so I don’t know how it happened.

Each one of the 35-36 “Czars” were appointed by obama to do what he is being paid to do, and they are also being paid. Each one answers only to obama. Each one is a socialist or communist and just a brief look of where they came from can substainiate that. They even say they are socialists or communists. Their marching orders are to overtake each part of America that they were appointed for. they DO NOT answer to Congress, or to US, the people. They are obamanation’s paid thugs and have been given the power by the obamanation to destroy America.

We have GOT to get rid of these Czars. Who gave obamanation the authority to turn the duties of the President to 35-36 Czars who were not elected???? while the obamanation goes out and does his dog and pony show, which, by the way, was mentioned in an interview which really nailed him!:

“Watch Obama work a crowd at a town hall meeting. He comes out, says a few words in greeting and then begins his laundry list of all the stuff that’s wrong with America, getting the audience all revved up. When the crowd is engaged and sufficiently “pissed off,” Obama presents a solution to the all the things that are “pissing them off” — the chosen one, the anointed one, the Obama — as president.

Saul Alinsky’s goal was to slowly turn the United States into a Communist dictatorship; to this end he tried to convince various groups of poor people and labor unions to push for legislation in that direction; he did this by appealing to their self-interest — whether valid or not — instead of using charismatic leadership — but now we have Obama, who is skilled in the Alinsky method and charismatic.”

Has someone started a petition for Beck.? It could be sent to their sponsors. I tend to believe there would be more signers. Check out the Board Members, Officers and owners of the corporations dropping Beck. I suspect it will be very interesting.

Beck called Obama a racist on national TV. That is inflammatory and hurts the entire conservative movement. I have no sympathy for him for this situation. Obama has race issues. Beck needs to study under Rush to learn how to express them.

75,000?? Bah! Its time for the “Astroturf Brigades” to get busy and send them a million!

Do you think astroturf is an insult? Look at it this way: Astroturf is built to high standards. It is resilient and tough. It is always ready. It’s low maintenance. It’s mobile.

Grass requires lots of maintenance. It lets weeds grow among it. To make it really successful, you have to shovel manure on it. If you walk on it too much, it dies.

"Each one of the 35-36 “Czars” "

I think there's more than 45 now.

What a way to put all your buddies on the government payroll (your money), I'd imagine that not one is making below $150,000 a year.

I sure hope so...most of us wouldn't even know this is going on without Beck. I worry that someone will shoot him.

Everyone of us need to make as much noise about this as possible.

Did you hear his points on how the thug govt is going to try to shut down Rush and Beck and Hannity and others on talk radio? It has something to do with the costs of producing their shows and making them pay the govt who will then give that money to PBS and I suppose other lib failing radio shows.

Well, Obama does exploit race and he shows favoratism based on race. Doesn't that define him as a racist?

Ayers, on the other hand, may not be a racist. He's just a terrorist.

This will do for Glenn Beck what Obama did publicly to Rush Limbaugh.

Look at Glenn's ratings. Big friggin deal if some companies want to pull out. I bet there are a list of companies that want their products to reach an audiance of that size.
Now I am not positive on how advertising works for FOX NEWS - I think companies buy the slots for different time frames and FOX tosses them in, I dont think it's show specific.

What happens when you yell DON'T WATCH THAT or DON'T LOOK AT THAT!! people by their nature will want to look, if they try to make Glenn Beck "Forbidden Fruit" it will just boost his ratings even farther.

That fact alone really ANGERS ME. Why is he appointing czars if not to USE them to threaten and bully private citizens into doing HIS WILL without him having to have these goons VETTED and without him having to go through congress for approval.

I AM so SICK AND TIRED of the democrats USING MY MONEY AND YOUR MONEY to pay for PARTISAN CITIZENS to SPREAD ONE MANTRA-uhbama's.

Is there no limit to these CZARS who answer only to the furer? Is there no way to uncover WHAT THEY ARE PAID and WHAT POWER THEY HAVE? After all, DO WE NOT DESERVE TO KNOW IF THEY HAVE POWER OVER US? Can these CZARS use the POWER OF THE WHITE HOUSE TO THREATEN BUSINESSES TO BEND TO THEIR WILL?

IF so...........then this is NOT a democratic republic anymore, this is a TOTALITARIAN STATE and the congress is merely a window dressing or distraction.

This is UN-AMERICAN, it is a bully tactic against conservatives that must be stopped.

WHERE in the HELL is the PRESS?

And WHY in HELL isn't my congressman, Dan Burton, and MY SENATORS, Bayh and Lugar, putting a STOP TO THIS!!!?

President Obama’s top priority for Congress is health care reform. Insurance companies are spending over a million dollars a day lobbying against the reform, while feeding myths and fears to America. It will take the same grassroots energy that got Obama elected to see the change we voted for. Our work isn’t over.

Yes there is...There's even a petition thread on FR but I don't know how to find it.

I called my local State Farm Agent yesterday and told him that he's likely to lose my business if this does not change. He's on our side and he's going to a townhall meeting with me Monday. He's sending an email to corporate headquarters about the problems he's having with this decision...we'll see.
