Van Jones became a revolutionary communist following the 1992 L.A./Rodney King Riots (58 dead)
various sources

Posted on Sunday, September 06, 2009 10:19:07 AM by ETL

"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.)"

"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.

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.'"

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.

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.

"Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail.

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.

Thanks for the clarification. Not sure it really matters even if true.

"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

No, I am saying he was arrested in San Francisco at a protest against the Rodney King verdict. He wasn't in L.A. or the riots there.

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..."

Apparently he wasn't convicted of anything for being involved in the demonstration in San Fran either.

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).

Thanks. But are you aware that the piece you posted is from the far left "TruthOut" website? Not saying they're not correct about the arrest situation, but they did apparently lie about Van Jones before...

__________________________

From Conservapedia, with linked sources at the website:

"Van Jones first moved to San Francisco in the spring of 1992, while studying law at Yale, when the leftist Lawyers Committee for Human Rights hired several organizers to be on hand for the trial of policemen charged with beating Rodney King. Not guilty verdicts in the officer's case resulted in riots which left 55 dead.[9]

Although Jones had been working for the communist front organization STORM for one year, Jones and the truthout.org web site put forward a cover story that made it appear Jones experienced a jailhouse conversion to communism.

Like another Obama associate, Bernardine Dohrn, Jones is a lawyer, avowed communist, associated with communist front organizations, and arrested in the aftermath of a deadly riot. The truthout.org site gives this biographical information on Jones:

“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.'...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.... I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.[10]"

Who do you think has information on him? Where do you think the video of him that Glenn Beck played came from? I relied on them because what was said is easily checked so it is doubtful they would lie about it. It's a lot more than the statement you have which has no specificity at all.

My apologies if you aren't interested in the truth. My fault for assuming you wouldn't want to be caught spreading BS.

In early May 1992, after the L.A. riots had ended, Jones was dispatched by LCCR Executive Director Eva Patterson to serve as a legal monitor at a nonviolent protest (against the Rodney King verdicts) in San Francisco. Local police, fearful that the event would devolve into violence, stopped the proceedings and arrested many of the participants, including all the legal monitors. Jones spent a short time in jail, and all charges against him were subsequently dropped.

"Trevor" is Trevor Loudon of NewZeal.blogspot.com, perhaps the best known and skilled commie researcher on the planet.

And I use far left and commie websites as sources only to show connections between various individuals and organizations. Not to listen to their BS about what happened anywhere. About 90% of what they say is BS. They haven't much choice BUT to lie and distort.

OK, looks like DiscoverTheNetworks.org updated that part of the article. So I’ll have to update my excerpts for future postings. Thank you, and I apologize for not immediately trusting those websites you linked to, as at least one of them (TruthOut.org) apparently did make up things about the incident, saying he only became a communist during his jail time following the LA riots, when in fact he had been a leading member of STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement) for about 1 year prior. In any case, what is undisputed is pretty damning enough, isn’t it? Can we agree on that, or do you think Van Jones has been misunderstood?

A serious thanks again for pointing out that detail about Van Jones's involvement with the revolutionary communist, anarchist left at the time of the Rodney King LA riots of which Revolutionary Communist Party members instigated.

Thank you. And I appreciate that you don't trust those sites unquestioningly. I vetted the Van Jones story when Glenn Beck broke it. The only place then that had that info was those sites and I put them in a "Van Jones" folder. Now it contains your links.

I only trusted what I found because the woman writing it was in an office of public trust which makes it riskier for her to make up whole cloth lies. Plus it was written reasonably (for the most part) and the info I was interested in could have been easily checked. If it had been and it was BS I feel sure I would have found the rebuttal on the net too.

Sometimes you have to go with your gut when you assess things and info is sparse. The other side, making it sound like he was arrested in L.A. in the riots and spent time in prison didn't have any specificity or sources.

Thanks again for acknowledging my efforts. Just want to help everyone have solid info to use in our fight against the stinking commies.

" You say you want a revolution. Well you know. We all want to change the world." (I hate the Beatles)

Have you seen this before...

The Lost John Lennon Interview
"Power to the People"

TA (interviewer): In a way you were even thinking about politics when you seemed to be knocking revolution?

JL (Lennon): Ah, sure, 'Revolution' . There were two versions of that song but the underground left only picked up on the one that said 'count me out'. The original version which ends up on the LP said 'count me in' too; I put in both because I wasn't sure. There was a third version that was just abstract, musique concrete, kind of loops and that, people screaming. I thought I was painting in sound a picture of revolution--but I made a mistake, you know. The mistake was that it was anti-revolution.

On the version released as a single I said 'when you talk about destruction you can count me out'. I didn't want to get killed. I didn't really know that much about the Maoists, but I just knew that they seemed to be so few and yet they painted themselves green and stood in front of the police waiting to get picked off. I just thought it was unsubtle, you know. I thought the original Communist revolutionaries coordinated themselves a bit better and didn't go around shouting about it. That was how I felt--I was really asking a question. As someone from the working class I was always interested in Russia and China and everything that related to the working class, even though I was playing the capitalist game.

How’s this for now?

“Jones was arrested [in the aftermath of] the L.A. riots [in San Fransisco] 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.’...”

That works. I don't think you need to even explain why he was in jail as long as you don't use the misleading text that makes it sound like he was rioting in L.A. and spent time in prison. Glenn Beck did that himself and it erodes his credibility. I wish he wouldn't do things like that because he has a lot of great information to share.

All that said; thanks for all of the work you do. It is invaluable to us all here on FR.

Thanks, FRiend! Found this link on your terrific "TheObamaFile" website. Anything you'd like to add to this thread would be appreciated.

"Last week, WND reported one day after the 9/11 attacks, Jones led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of "U.S. imperialism" around the world.

Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," surfaced on the Internet." http://www.leftspot.com/blog/files/docs/STORMSummation.pdf

For the record, here is an, at least, partial text of the YouTube video/audio at the top. Bold-type highlighting is mine, as is a few of the paragraph separations:

VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar'):
“Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said OK now we want reparations for Slavery, we want redistribution of all the wealth, and we want to legalize mixed marriages. If we’d come out with a maximum program the very next day, they’d been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum. “We just want to integrate these busses…”

But, inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1964 to 1968 complete revolution was on the table for this country.

And, I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages.

Right now we say we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to something eco-capitalism where at least we’re not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it won’t be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, that’s a process and I think that’s what’s great about the movement that is beginning to emerge is that the CRISIS is so severe in terms of joblessness, violence and now ecological threats that people are willing to be both pragmatic and visionary.

So the green economy will start off as a small subset and we are going to push it and push it and push it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.
