Van Jones Warns Of A Progressive "October Offensive" Against Tea Party
realclearpolitics ^ | 09/30/11 | realclearpolitics

Posted on 09/30/2011 12:56:50 PM PDT by barmag25

Van Jones, president of the progressive organization Rebuild the Dream, joins The Last Word to discuss what Washington should be doing about jobs. Jones calls the US' deficit problem "phony" and made up. "Hold on to your hats, we're going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America's middle class," Jones told MSNBC's "The Last Word." Jones warns of an "American Fall" like there was an Arab Spring. Jones was President Obama's "green jobs czar" until he resigned in fall of 2009. Transcript below: Van Jones: "We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

“Jones warns of an “American Fall” like there was an Arab Spring.”

Let guess?
Led by a twitter and Facebook offensive by a 37-year old Prof in Atlanta who calls himself “Gay Girl In Damascus”?

I would not put anything like this past the Democrats.

AND once it’s underway, Liberals will of course have ready made reasons why it is NOT THEIR doing.

Can’t Wait!! Thanks “O” for making America a third world sh%$ hole like the one you were born in.

Jones: "..take back the American dream.."

We've known all along that the left doesn't know what the American Dream is, and wouldn't understand it even if we told them.

“Rebuild the dream”

I assume the “dream” means nobody works and waits on line all day for handouts from the government in between sleeping in government created camps?

Why doesn't someone straight out ask this lunatic if he can name even ONE occasion when Conservatives attempted to further their OWN agenda with offensive language, libel, character assasination, violence or civil disorder?

It is more likely you could document numerous and extreme examples of Liberals having behaved this way then any Conservatives!!

Where is the MSM which is supposed to watchdog political discourse in this country?? Are they off in the corner somewhere choking on their objectivity??

You mean like their takeover of Wall Street, where less than a hundred people showed up. Or their counter protests in 2010 where a few hundred people showed up. The only reason that their protests in Madison worked is that there was a University close at hand.

As much as I despise Al Quida and the Arab Spring crowd, they were willing to play the head busting game. But the looters in England gave way as soon as anyone showed the slightest resistance. They were just opportunist looters not revolutionaries. Their flash mobs may disrupt things, but they can't hold territory. Even in Madison, where they had the numbers, they weren't able to change anything.

Well, there has been a lot of talk of race war coming, including some pretty vicious hints from Obama. And I’m sure that Eric Holder and Janet Incompetano will be glad to stick up for Van Jones and his flash mobs when they make their appearance. As will the insane media.

We’ve always known that if a civil war begins, it will be started by the left. And, yes, it will be finished, hopefully, by decent citizens with guns. But I’m not going to say “bring it on,” because these cowards like to gang up on the weak and defenseless, like the good commie muslims they are.

They will talk like they are mobilizing hundreds of thousands but on the streets they will actually put hundreds. Or dozens. Thats been the pattern of the last two years.

They just aren’t fired up enough to have a “grass roots”. They have a whole lot of leadership in all the offical affiliated organizations and, on paper, millions of “followers”. But its all smoke and mirrors. All chiefs and no indians.

Although Jones is by no means any kind of unique example, it just boggles my mind that complete moonbat nutjobs have gainful employment and earn respect in an economy that is flat on its ass. That we pay good money to people who want nothing more than to tear down the system that pays them, that exalts them as intellectual elites. Guys like this are just completely useless. Indeed, many of them are worse than useless. “Useless” would be a step up for many of them.

Hey Van, the Tea Party gatherings are peaceful and patriotic.

If you came face to face with one of these groups, you’d probably gibber, blubber and wet yourself. Akin to the reaction a vampire would have to Holy water.

Van, if you're going to shuck & jive, why not pick an even bigger number out of thin air? Say that 180 percent of Americans in all 57 states agree, and the eleventy billion people in the world do too!
