(VIDEO) Hes Going to Break the Unpatriotic, Crazy Tea Party Bubble: Van Jones Reveals the Strategy Behind Why the Unions & Left Are Villainizing the Enemy Tea Party at a Progressive Convention
Projection - Mastered by the left
Obama's former "Green Jobs Czar", Van Jones, links "Green Movement" to revolutionary communist movement!
See "Goal is complete revolution" below...
VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')
"Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, speaks [lovingly] 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."
"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."--via TheObamaFile
VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"
Here is the transcript of the above YouTube video:
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 wed come out with a maximum program the very next day, theyd 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 were not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it wont be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, thats a process and I think thats whats 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.

Here's the original source for the Van Jones quote about the time he spent in jail following the Rodney King/LA riots (Jones was arrested in "peaceful" protests in San Fran). It was in a 2005 interview he did with East Bay Express. They of course (what else?) claim he "renounced his rowdy Black Nationalist ways" since then (yet he's calling for "complete revolution" in Aug 2009! ...see above):
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."
The 1992 LA/Rodney King riots were instigated by the Revolutionary Communist Party...
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.'"
That Alinsky strategy can used on them too.
There are a lot of charges that can be leveled at the principle players.
*payback is a b*tch
Maybe Jones should go help out in Cuba where even Castro has said socialism isn’t all its cracked up to be.
This crew is setting liberalism back 20 25 years.
The strategy works better against the left, IMO.
Earth to Van Jones...
You are part of the reason there is a TEA PARTY, you moron!
VAN JONES: People talk about bubbles in the economy. We had the tech bubble and the housing bubble and the bubble bubble. There’s a Tea Party bubble, and I want to pop it. There’s a Tea Party Bubble, and I don’t think that most people in the country are that batty and crazy. I think most people in America have pretty good ideas for the economy. We want to give them a voice.
I can’t WAIT to see the RinoCracy-both sides of the aisle..on the election trails..shrieking about how “unpatriotic” Constitutional Government is!!!
Van Jones building left-wing Tea Party, says the country isnt broke
Former Obama administration green jobs czar Van Jones is trying to build a liberal Tea Party movement by denying the federal budget crisis.
The left-wing champion launched his liberal Tea Party movement, which hes dubbed the Rebuild the Dream movement, at a Thursday night event in New York City. (Time magazine cover features shredded U.S. Constitution, asks if it still matters)
We are being lied to, Jones said. We are not broke. Were the richest country in the history of the world.
The Rebuild the Dream website once echoed the same meme. MoveOn Civic Action & The Other 98% teamed up to keep the message going: We Are Being Lied To, read the movements mission statement on rebuildthedream.com. The country isnt broke and the last thing we should be doing is gutting workers rights and cutting vital services American families depend on.
The website took that paragraph down sometime between June 13 and now. On June 13, The Daily Caller asked Jones to provide examples and statistics to prove the country isnt broke. Jones never responded.
Jones told the Washington Post he thinks liberals can do what the tea party did.
They stepped forward under a common banner, and everybody took them seriously, he said. Polls suggest there are more people out there who have a different view of the economy, but who have not stepped forward yet under a common banner.
Yes, it does, and a BTT to back it up. Especially two of the rules: fixation and personalization of a target (Van Jones is a perfect example) and ridicule. These are always most easily employed on incumbents. 0bama is now feeling a heat his people loved to dish out. I can't work up much sympathy.
Truther, Self-described communist, and former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones has a new mission, to start a progressive version of the Tea Party movement. Just like the real tea party, the Van Jones creation is based on economics. There are major differences though, being a progressive movement its basic premise is a lie, and instead of being a bottom up grass roots organization like the tea party, the Van Jones version is top down similar to the progressive philosophy that everything must be run by a central government.
The Van Jones tea party is called The American Dream Movement. Jones says he is forming the movement because liberal activists expressed frustration that they lacked the political power or media focus given to the conservative tea-party movement.
He never left...
‘Jobs, not cuts: Battlecry for ‘American Dream’ movement
By Van Jones - 08/03/11 12:24 PM ET
After the 2008 financial collapse and Barack Obamas election, millions of Americans hoped that our country would create a New Deal for the 21st century.
Instead, it feels like we are getting a Raw Deal, one that drags us back toward the 19th century.
This summer, a minority of extremists somehow grabbed what should have been a routine legislative act and used it to highjack our democracy, undermine our nations standing in the world, jeopardize our shaky economic recovery and impose massive, job-killing cutbacks all while blocking any tax increases on the rich.
Many Democrats fought hard to limit the damage. (Special thanks are owed to House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, the Progressive Congressional Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus. Also, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. Bernie Sanders played key and complementary roles.) As a result, the debt-ceiling agreement offers some protection for needed social programs but they are thin protections.
This whole process was distressing; the final outcome looks depressing. We are supposed to be a much better country than this.
How did we get to this low place, from the high hopes we had in November 2008?

Hit the pavements!
We must also advance progressive candidates, and for goodness sake get out and vote (no more sitting it out!), and choose the most progressive candidate available. The Tea Party, astroturfed though it was, has been very successful in moving the GOP to the extreme right. We need to move the Democratic party to the left, and that means really understanding and talking about what the Tea Party is and what it stands for. It’s a repellent and failed ideology that represents the interests of the corporate elite and moves us toward corporatist fascism.
The most important platform for progressive candidates is addressing government corruption: limiting lobbying, overturning the Citizen’s United ruling, passing laws like DISCLOSE, etc. Our government is corrupt, and our representatives , for the most part, don’t represent us.

He’s got a record, he needs to be put behind bars
If things go to hell in a Hand basket, I predict that Van Jones will also go the way of Mussolini
Strung Up on a by his feat and used as a Human Pinata, that is how these things always end.
Studied at University at Buffalo, The State University of New YorkLives in Buffalo, New York
I’m sorry that you are so delusional as to think that this is a winning strategy. There are no “responsible Republicans”, and there are too few Democrats willing to stand and fight. We have lost the messaging/framing wars by allowing the Republicans to shift debate from jobs growth to the so called debt crisis, and we have lost this fight on every item on the agenda from the get-go. The problem is the Democratic Party - they don’t know how to do politics.

Nah Van Jones doesn’t have the “courage” of Mussolini. Van Jones would likely land somewhere out of reach and keep running his idiot mouth.
