Posted on 09/05/2009 7:09:09 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
As noted by John Stephenson of NewsBusters, much of the media has been ignoring the enormous Van Jones controversy. However, Joe Garofoli, the politics writer and blogger for Jones' hometown newspaper, the liberal San Francisco Chronicle, has just written about the toxic effect of Van Jones and who is standing by their Van and who isn't in his Politics blog:
The Bay Area's Van Jones -- the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality -- just finished apologizing for calling Republicans "a-holes" when he got something else to start explaining: How his signature got on a 2004 petition asking for an immediate "inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur." Van said he didn't carefully review the petition before signing it "certainly does not reflect my views now or ever."

We know more about Obama’s friends than we do about Obama.
FYI. Check the full article. Your song parody is there.
My favorite part of the SF article is where the dumb reporter asks why would Jones work for the WH if he doesnt like America.
Uh.....not too hard to figure out.
Van Jones; the new White House Apology Czar.
Please Mr. President, don’t fire Van Jones. Please, please, please. He’s the gift that just keeps on giving. :)
Thanx, PJ. And yes, people should read the full article. You give a good rejoinder to the Left's defense of this commie truther's (to use their words) "lefty past."
But since I wrote the song you included, and I posted it on FR first, I'll post it here on this thread, since it's relevant:
Sometimes it's hard to be Obama
Backin' all the czars at your command
You'll have commies
Wipin' out your castles in the sand
But if you love him you won't dump him
Even though he's messin' up your plan
And if they throw stones
Oh, don't let go Jones
'Cause after all he's still your Van
Stand by your Van
Give him your imprimatur
Don't be a wimp about it
When whites attack your brother
Stand by your Van
And show Glenn Beck you back him
Keep backin' Jones--oh, yes you can!
Stand by your Van!
Would LOVE to see this sung on Glenn Beck next week!

I agree he is the posterboy for everything that wrong with administration.Keep him around to kick around. Lets get a new target.
A creature like the subject of this article is useful. He illustrates the hatred felt by blacks for whites and all things associated with the previously successful white culture; i.e science, commerce etc. He cannot fathom earned success. To him success is a warm government check that magically appears twice a month.
NY Post calls him a nut.
A single line comment that needs to be sent to Rush, Hannity and Beck.
I'll bet you a bottle of Maker's Mark we could get a LF/BC for Van Jones, rather easily.
That's when my eyes rolled. The only way to make the government work the way one wants it to is from the inside. How do all movements change the government they hate? By taking it over.
I saw somwthing about it on ABC —
saying “Conservatives have taken issue with....”
Here is another organization where Van Jones is listed as number seven (7). You have to scroll down to the end!!!
I wonder if that is ALSO a mistake that is not at all his views either then and “certainly” not now, hmmmm???
