Jones quoted in 1995 book:
"As scary as people thought gangsta rap was, it's nothing compared to young people using hip-hop to express what they're going through and targeting the people who are really responsible."
"I don't believe the power of the people can be confined to the ballot box. We need to be about the whup-ass. Somebody's f***ing up somewhere. They have names and job descriptions. You have to be creative about how you engage the enemy..."

Actually, it’s refreshing to have their actual writings confirm suspicions that these folks are really as stupid as they seem.
Van Jones Supported a Cop-Killer; Van Jones Says “Kanye Was Right”
Slublog does the research that the Obama Administration couldn’t be bothered to do and turns up some obvious warning signs that Van Jones was a nutjob.
First, in 1999 he organized a protest in support of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. I can’t find a link to the article (let me know if you find one), but it ran in the October 9, 1999, San Francisco Chronicle on page A17 under the headline: “Timing of Protest is Suspect; Mumia supporters disrupt youth event”. The meat:
A supporter of a Pennsylvania death row inmate denied that demonstrators were trying to upstage a long-planned dialogue between Oakland police and local youth Thursday night.
Supporters of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a death row inmate convicted for the 1981 shooting death of a Philadelphia police officer, said the protest was called after the Supreme Court on Monday rejected claims that Abu-Jamal, a former radio journalist and Black Panther, did not receive a fair trial.
“We knew there was another event going on, but the timing of the court decision is what dictated when the protest was held,” said Van Jones, a San Francisco civil rights lawyer who helped coordinate the protest march.
Jones said about 15 protesters occupied the rotunda at the Federal Building on Clay Street in an act of civil disobedience with the hope they would be arrested.
Yes, the “Green Jobs Czar” hoped to be arrested and ruined a planned event for cops and kids. In Oakland, where they probably needed that stuff badly.
Second, in November 2005, the East Bay Express noted Jones’ appearance at a conference for environmental radicals:
By the time the final speaker addressed the crowd, people shuffled restlessly in their seats as a lone infant wailed. Van Jones, a tall, dark-skinned man wearing a “Kanye was right” T-shirt under his black blazer, seemed to have little in common with his audience of predominately white hippies.
The man is a classic racist: exuding a noxious odor of angry entitlement.
He promulgates the usual toxic fantasy of minority victimhood. And so he is morally culpable for the crushing failure of Black culture in America.
I think what’s really funny about the “Green Jobs” czar position is that it’s become so transparent that these “czar” positions are merely vehicles for Obama to inject Marxists into the executive branch without having to run them past Congress.
I think that’s the big story hiding beneath the surface of all of these individual incidents - a deliberate, systematic end-run around the people and Congress to bring Marxist policy to the White House. A year ago, I would have considered that tin foil, but it’s indisputable that we’re seeing it in action today.
Oh yea, THIS guy is gonna go over big, huh?
Hey! He and I agree on something.
Net 2.0 is going to have to increase bandwidth in order to keep up with the speed and volume of Van Jones revelations...
that little POS
It seems Obama’s requirement for Czar is to be a certifiable nut job with crazy ideas. Don’t forget his other csars have recommended putting sterilants in the water supply for certain populations as well as forced abortions. This is one craaazzzyyy White House!!!
