Skip to comments.Van Jones: On the 9/11 Attacks, Not Just a ‘Truther,’ a ‘Deserver’ (AmeriKKKa "deserved" attack!)
Posted on 09/08/2009 1:37:23 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The "resignation" shortly after midnight on Sunday morning of President Obama's "green jobs czar" Van Jones has generally been seen as a convenient holiday weekend move.
By Friday, after White House Secretary Robert Gibbs would only say that he still was a part of the administration, it was obvious that Jones's resignation was only a matter of time. The 9/11 truther and other evidence accumulated by Glenn Beck, Gateway Pundit, and others was simply overwhelming.
But it seems to me that it would have been more convenient had the White House waited until early Sunday afternoon to announce Jones's resignation. Given the establishment media's near blackout of his past statements and actions, it's likely that the Sunday morning network talk shows would have avoided Jones completely, or would have given the topic very short shrift. A Sunday afternoon resignation would have been much more invisible -- except for something that came out on Saturday evening.
I believe that Jones's resignation may have been moved up by 12 hours or so. That's because on Saturday evening, Scott Johnson at Powerline presented proof that roughly 40 hours after the 9/11 terrorist attacks occurred, avowed Communist Jones publicly declared that the U.S. deserved what happened. I'm not kidding.
Jones's statements are the functional equivalents of Jeremiah Wright's outrageous "America's chickens coming home to roost" rant at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. They need to be more widely known.
Here they are, as reported by a far left web site early in the morning on Wednesday, September 13, 2001, covering an event in Oakland held on the evening of September 12:

Let's repeat: "The bombs the government drops in Iraq are the bombs that blew up in New York City."
Keep in mind that Jones had to be referring to either the first Gulf War or no-fly-zone incidents, as the war to remove Saddam Hussein did not begin until 2003.
Charleston Daily Mail blogger Don Surber had this reaction to Powerline's post a short time later: "(This is) the smoking gun that will either bring down Van Jones or Barack Obama. It is President Obamas choice." That choice was obvious.
From a White House media strategy standpoint, Jones's dead-of-night resignation unfortunately ensured that he would be a topic of conversation Sunday morning, but it minimized the chance of Powerline's bombshell becoming part of the discussion. Sure, David Axelrod had to go through the discomfort of laughably claiming that "this was Van Jones' own decision. That's a mere occupational annoyance. Given the chattering class's reluctance all along to tell viewers the full truth about Jones, his resignation gave them an opening to change the topic from "What did he say and do?" to "Whose fault is it?" (meanie bloggers, talkers, and Republicans, not necessarily in that order) and "How will this hurt the administration?" (of course, in their view and with their weeks of help, not much). No additional information about Jones himself was necessary to fuel that discussion.
The White House did the best it could with a bad situation suddenly made much worse by Powerline, and the media met the White House's see-no-new-evil wishes/expectations. Mission accomplished: Few people know that Jones believed, and still presumably does (in the context of everything else, why shouldn't we?), that America deserved the 9/11 attacks. You can make book that the Associated Press, the New York Times, and the rest of the establishment press will ignore what you've seen here.
One thing we don't know is how aware of Jones's "deserver" views Obama close left-hand adviser Valerie Jarrett was when she made this statement in mid-August:
So, Van Jones. We were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House. We were watching him, uh, really, hes not that old, for as long as hes been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that. And we have all that energy in the White House.
If we're to believe Jarrett's boast, the answer is "very."
Note: I did not include a 9/11 picture of the Pentagon only because of space limitations, and I intend no slight to the memory of that attack or those who lost loved ones it.
Wow. What a steaming pantload of.....
Quite agreed. When contacting friends and family, start with those we know most in the political center or apolitical or independents, who went for *O* in 2008, but now have regrets, either openly or reluctantly/sheepishly expressed. These people can be peeled away in DROVES! (They already have been coming over the fence in force since June)....
He looks like just the kind of commie the RAT party is always looking for.
Yeah, if your Aunt is an associate professor of LGBT Studies at Berkeley, you might want to wait on sending her this. LOL
So Van Jones thinks that Bush ordered 9/11, but at the same time we deserved 9/11... ? So he is a Bush fan right? Shouldn’t the libs now call for his head?
He knew that if the congressional investigation were to go forward, he would have been toast. The White House knew that also, and it would have turned into a mess for both. It's one thing to deflect comments from bloggers and talk show hosts. It's quite another to explain yourself in front of Congress. The commie scum ran like a rat deserting a sinking ship.
Jones used his Ella Baker Center for Human Rights to found Freedom Fighter Music, the label WarTimes appeared on. WarTimes is also the name of an anti-war-on-al-Qaeda propaganda newspaper Jones helped organize. The album featured cop killer Mumia abu-Jamal.
Here are a few of the lines from hate-filled anti-white, anti-American, anti-Israeli recording by Van Jones and the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights:
" The American way, manufactured by these white folks in office. By these rich men here to mock us. The United States is a stolen land led by right-wing, war hungry, oil thirsty. And when it's all said and done they still can't clean their own place because they got people of color playing servant to do that sh*t for them... The true terrorists are made in the US, in this police state... The US is a crack-fiend for oil. And they're ready to rape, kill, assault, rob anybody and everybody...
Bombing babies in the night. Two wrongs don't make a right... The US needs to exit its colonies in Iraq, in the region and finally in Israel.
Van Jones: At this point. The end of the occupation. The right of return of the Palestinian people. These are critical dividing lines in human rights. We have to be here. No American would put up with an Israeli-style occupation of their hometown for 53 days let alone 54 years. US tax dollars are funding violence against people of color inside the US borders and outside the US borders."
I ask again: How can ANY President of the United States of America have “no comment” on having a Communist in his Administration?
When the President himself is a Communist maybe?
A wright buddy—who would have thunk it? Fleas of the same family on the same dog. Hey, 0, how ‘bout you?

There’s your answer: They just don’t think it’s a big deal.
I don’t think they really believe that deep down. You know a lot of them watched Beck’s exposé or they wouldn’t have been trying to bring him down in the first place. If they watched, they had to see the video/audio footage of Jones’ various remarks over the years and in recent year, even months. So, they’re just spinning it that this is about calling pubs assholes as cover for what Jones is really all about.
It’s pretty bad when the best thing you can say about a close adviser to the president is that he called pubs assholes and said Bush arranged the attack on the WTC.
I think this FCC Lloyd guy needs to be the next one to go, then maybe Sunstein or the idiot who wants animals to have lawyers.
Van Jones, more than anything else, will be the Left’s undoing. He is being passionately defended by everyone from the far left to the icons of the “main stream” media (e.g., David Gergen) for words that are by any objective measure completely indefensible.
His anti-semitism alone will prove fatal to Dems. Jimmy Carter did not get a majority of the Jewish vote in 1980. I’ve never understood why Jews ever vote Democratic, but in the face of this nonsense it is hard for me to imagine that Jews will stand for this.
This is likely the camel’s nose under the tent. There must be lots more where this came from, and on other White House personnel.
He’s Cynthia McKinney in trousers.
Yes, highly interesting.
