You must see this short video!
YouTube: "Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, speaks about Green Job Czar, Van Jones, at the Netroots Convention on August 12, 2009. Then Van Jones speaks about [a COMMUNIST] transforming [of] the whole society."
Van Jones became a revolutionary communist following the 1992 L.A./Rodney King Riots (58 dead)

"Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. "I met all these young radical people of color," he recalls, '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.'..."
By the late 1990s, Jones was a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who viewed police officers as the arch-enemies of black people, and who loathed capitalism for allegedly exploiting nonwhite minorities worldwide. He became a leading member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a now-defunct Bay Area Marxist-Maoist collective that was staffed by members of various local nonprofits, a number of whom had ties to the Ella Baker Center.
In the early 2000s, Jones and STORM were active in the anti-Iraq War demonstrations organized by International ANSWER, a front group for the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party. STORM also had ties to the South African Communist Party and it revered Amilcar Cabral, the late Marxist revolutionary leader (of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands) who lauded Lenin as "the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples." (In 2006 Van Jones would name his own newborn son "Cabral" -- in Amilcar Cabral's honor.)"
"Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. 'I met all these young radical people of color,' he recalls, 'I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'..."
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
Oh, there’s probably going to be a revolution, but it won’t be what they expect...
They will be on the losing side ;-)
Another Appointment, another SCUMBucket
Have to admit it
Fuhrer OBAMA is CONSISTENT!!!
This is news?
Well, maybe not to someone like you who obviously knows everything there is to know about it. Unfortunately, all that was mostly brought up on Fox News (forget the other stations) concerning Van Jones was that he was a communist, not that he was actually advocating a revolution. Not all commies want to see a violent overthrow of the country. Beck was basically the only one talking about it.
I'm bringing it up now because the SOB just received an "American Treasure" award from the NAACP.
Gotta love the Obama brigades. Too stupid to keep their mouths shut.
We can give him all the revolution he can handle and then some!
Valerie is a nationalist socialist marxist, and she is the one who brought Van Jones to Washington, and she is the one that got Soros to fund him at the Center for American Progress when he got booted from Czardom. Jones should be in jail for sedition and treason, rather than advising America on “green jobs” whatever that is.
Note that he has to bring comments about race into the discussion? Racism is wrong. Therefore you cannot argue with him.
I am so sick of everything being about race with these idiots. I was born white and they can get the freak over it. They are all so full of hate for whitey.
It should be kept in mind while repeating this that he wasn't arrested in L.A. in the riots. He was arrested in San Francisco in some other kind of protest.
"I met all these young radical people of color," he recalls, '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.'--Van Jones
Are you saying he was arrested during the LA riots but served no time at all in jail for it?
When you think of Van Jones just think watermelon. Am I being racist? Nope.
He’s green on the outside and Red on the inside!
Jones first moved to the Bay Area in the spring of 1992, when the San Francisco-based Lawyers Committee for Human Rights hired a batch of law students to act as legal observers during the trial of Rodney King's assailants. Eva Paterson, who was then the committee's executive director, remembers getting a cover letter that stood out from the rest: "It was this piece of stationery that had little faces across the top, a stencil of little guys with dreads. We said, 'Oh, yeah, we're hiring him.'"
Paterson got to know Jones over the coming months, and enjoyed having the young radical in her office. "He was a kid then, really," she said. "He was brilliant, pretty feisty, pretty in your face, but that's how you are when you're young. Just a force of nature."
When the verdicts came down - not guilty for three of the officers involved, and deadlocked on the fourth - Paterson's office, like the city, reacted with disbelief. Paterson said she felt like picking up her office chair and hurling it out the window. The staff hit the streets to monitor the demonstrations that erupted in San Francisco. One week later, while Jones was observing the first large rally since the lifting of the city's state of emergency, he got swept up in mass arrests. It was a turning point in his life.
Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, "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.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "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 the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."
You are probably right it doesn't really matter. But it does sound a bit different than say "he was arrested during the L.A. riots..."
Yep! That old expression suits him to a tee!
As I'm sure you know, these two guys below have lots on her:

"Why did Barack Obama move to Chicago? Why did he choose a city famous for its corruption and distrust of outsiders as a launching pad for his political career? Did Obama's boyhood mentor, life long communist Frank Marshall Davis influence that choice?"

Proof That Obama's Hawaii and Chicago Communist Networks Were Linked [Valerie Jarret]
This is what really happened. On May 8, 1992, the week AFTER the Rodney King disturbances, I sent a staff attorney and Van out to be legal monitors at a peaceful march in San Francisco. The local police, perhaps understandably nervous, stopped the march and arrested hundreds of people -- including all the legal monitors.
The matter was quickly sorted out; Van and my staff attorney were released within a few hours. All charges against them were dropped. Van was part of a successful class action lawsuit later; the City of San Francisco ultimately compensated him financially for his unjust arrest (a rare outcome).
