“I think if President Obama came out as gay, he wouldn't lose the black vote," a cheerful Van Jones told MSNBC this afternoon.

"President Obama is not going to lose the black vote no matter what he does," he added.

The majority of black people are not very “gay friendly”.

Virtually everyone I know is 100% dead-set against gay marriage.

And look at how Damon Wayans used to portray gay blacks on In Living Color.

“We thought so, Van, but we didn’t want to say it.
You would call us racist if we did of course.”

Worse is the implication. It’s bad enough to be racist, but such an attitude also displays an incredible degree of irresponsibility and stupidity. What responsible voter would substitute blind allegiance to ANYTHING (race, religion, ideology) for his/her own judgment for what’s best for the country? And how stupid would one have to be to behave in this mindless robotic fashion? Van Jones has insulted every black in America. Where’s the outrage from Al Sharpton and his fellow race baiters?

Van Jones is a liberal. The Progressive system is designed to neutralize critical thinking and enforce lockstep identification with emotional symbols. I think that's why Progressivism has captured such a large percentage of blacks. Due to the history of treatment of blacks in this country it is easy to identify with something as superficial as skin color. It was that superficial trait that marked them for severe discrimination after all.

Progressivism is very adroit at exploiting any weakness in thought and emotions. The twin demons of fear and greed are powerful motivators of thought and emotion. Progressivism employs the carrot and stick in a skilled way and cloaks it in the camouflage of intellectual sophistication and righteousness.

At this point in time that is true but I don’t think they would be nearly so much if the liberals weren’t artificially stimulating that mindset in them for political purposes. See #46 for more of my thoughts on that.

See #46. The goal of Progressivism is not to create patriots its purpose is to create sheeple. The desired results are not the improvement of their lives or the nation but obedience to the cause.

What an odd thing for Jones to say: does he know something the rest of us don't?

Bubba liked the back of an El Camino. Maybe Barry prefers the back of a van.
