Communists right in our face, and nobody does a thing.

I believe it'll be totally up to us.

One of many reasons free America is buying firearms and ammo.

I’m a little curious why he referenced the London riots.

Was he not aware of the same kind of thing happening here?

I’ll have to revisit the article. He writes on all sorts of stuff. He can not be pidgeonholed. In some ways he comes across as far right wing and in others as a radical liberal. But whatever position he takes, he backs it up pretty darned well.

Here’s more info about Van Jones, pure black and red racist commie.

http://keywiki.org/index.php/Van_Jones

A few snips:

Anthony K. (Van) Jones, a Bay Area Marxist radical, was appointed on March 10, 2009 as Green Jobs adviser to the Obama administration-or officially Special Adviser for Green Jobs... [He was later ‘let go’ when outed as a commie.]

Radicalization

In 1992, while studying at Yale, Jones interned at Lawyers Committee for Human Rights in San Francisco where he acted as a legal observer during the trial of policemen charged with assaulting Rodney King.

Not guilty verdicts in the King case led to mass rioting-and arrests.

Jones was radicalized by the jail experience.

“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.”’[3]

Jones went on to join and lead a prominent Bay Area communist organization-Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).

” Returning to Van Jones, with all the shimmer associated with a rising star, many forget that a man now advising the president was a member of a revolutionary organization in the SF Bay Area called STORM (Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement). Throughout the group’s history, Van Jones was seen as a public figure within the Bay Area left and a leading member of STORM.

STORM had its roots in a grouping of people of color organizing against he Gulf War in the early 1990’s and was formally founded in 1994. The group’s politics had a number of influences, but evolved towards what could be best characterized as third worldist Marxism (and an often vulgar Maoism). The group grew in influence until its disbanding in 2002 amid problems of internal dynamics and especially controversy around the leadership roles that members played in the youth movement (such as the fight against Proposition 21). Nearly the entire membership of the organization was staff members for various social movement non-profits in the Bay Area, many linked to the Ella Baker Center, which Van Jones steered.

While never large, STORM was one of the most influential and active radical groups in the Bay Area, controlling numerous front organizations including Bay Area Police Watch, one of several anti police activities Jones was involved in.’’[4]”

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[5]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[6]as “the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples.” In 2006 Van Jones named his newborn son “Cabral”-in Amilcar Cabral’s honor.)

According to former Jones colleague Nina Rothschild Utne in every e-mail Van Jones sends, he includes this quote from Amílcar Cabral[7];

“Hide nothing from the masses of our people. Tell no lies. Expose lies whenever they are told. Mask no difficulties, mistakes, failures. Claim no easy victories... Our experience has shown us that in the general framework of daily struggle this battle against ourselves, this struggle against our own weaknesses... is the most difficult of all.”

Van Jones attended the June 1998 Black Radical Congress in Chicago, where he got to work with famous communist militants of an older generation.


There’s a lot more. He is a nasty evil man.

Oh, here’s the Weathermen connection, I think Dennis Frapper is the one who was involved in planning OWSers.


Ella Baker Human Rights Center and the Weathermen Connection

Van Jones has worked closely for years with San Francisco real estate broker, lawyer and activist Diana Frappier.

Jones and Frappier ran police monitoring organization CopWatch, together, then in 1996 the pair established the Oakland California based Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.

The Ella Baker Center is named after a little known civil rights activist Ella J. Baker (1903-1986) who worked closely with secret Communist Party USA member Stanley Levison-for many years the CPUSA’s top money man.

By the 1970s Ella J. Baker was involved with several far left organizations of the time including the Mass Party Organising Committee (MPOC) and the Puerto Rican Support Committee{PRSC). Both groups worked closely with the Praire Fire Organizing Committee (PFOC), the “legal” support network for the terrorist Weather Underground Organization (WUO).

Diana Frappier is believed to be related to Bay Area activists Jon Frappier and Nancy Frappier-nee Barnett. Both Jon and Nancy were active in Students for a Democratic Society(SDS) in the late 1960s. Both were aligned to SDS’s Weathermen faction which later submerged to form the Weather Underground Organization.

Unless the current military has done a COMPLETE 180 since I left, I doubt that the majority support the Left. Police may belong to unions, but that doesn’t make them all Obots.

Van Jones to keynote environmental film festival in Madison
by Staff
March 21, 2012

MADISON — Green jobs advocate Van Jones, president and co-founder of the economic reform organization Rebuild the Dream, will deliver the keynote address for the Tales from Planet Earth film festival at the Barrymore Theater, 2090 Atwood Ave. in Madison on Monday, March 26.

(snip)

In addition to Rebuild the Dream, Jones has co-founded three other organizations: the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights; Color of Change; and Green For All. He also holds an appointment as a distinguished visiting fellow at Princeton University and served as a green jobs advisor to President Obama.

Jones’s keynote speech will highlight themes woven through the environmental film festival, including the promise of a greener economy and the roots of some of Wisconsin’s current labor issues.

“Our festival uses the storytelling power of films to see the environment in new, unexpected ways,” says Nelson Institute Interim Director Gregg Mitman, the festival founder and curator. “The environmental movement is made up of many diverse strands, and has increasingly come to embrace issues of inequality, social justice, and the places where people live, work, and play.”

Hawaii Could Be First in Nation to Establish ‘Clean Economy Bank’ For Energy
By Sophie Cocke 03/20/2012

President Barack Obama pushed for a national version of it back in 2008, but it went nowhere.

Now, Hawaii is considering the creation of a “clean economy bank.” And it’s attracted the attention of Obama’s former green energy czar.

Van Jones, who oversaw $80 billion in green recovery spending for the Obama administration in 2009, was in Honolulu Tuesday and testified in favor of House Bill 1033 before the Senate Energy and Environment Committee, calling it a “path-breaking proposal.”

The bank would allow clean energy companies to take out low interest loans. And the revenue generated would go back to the state, as opposed to being retained by private banks, supporters say. Start-up funding could come from more than $10 million in federal stimulus money for energy projects that the state has yet to disburse.

Unreal ...

The victimology successor to Jesse and Al is building
his constituency in the next generation.

I want to see these people banished .. shunned by
society for their hateful and perverse indoctrination.
They thrive and make their fortunes off the suffering
and ignorance of their targets. Damn them all.

Where? Here’s my $10 toward a cattle car for him and his scummy, racist, hate-America ilk.

Let's load up an old cargo ship and invite them to a coral reef cruise. Tell them they would be helping the eviornment by seeding a new coral reef. Sink the ship there with everyone on board. Think of the good the people would be participating in as the sea welcomed the growth and nutrition of liberals and their artificial structure.

Someday (assuming the whole globul warming thing has been "conquered") in about 250 years, those liberal's great, great, great grandkids will be able to visit that reef and tell their liberal children kids their ancestors created life in the ocean and thereby all the life on earth.
