Van Jones: Obama Wouldn't Lose Black Vote If He Came Out As Gay
RCP ^ | 3 Apr 2012 | Anon

Posted on 04/03/2012 2:03:38 AM PDT by Rummyfan

“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.

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

As I’ve said before, Obama could kill puppies with a hammer on live TV everyday until November and still keep his core voters.

Racism and marxism win out over every other loyalty for those voters. I’m just surprised that Van Jones is advertising that fact.

IOWs Van Jones is saying that skin color is the only thing that matters to blacks.

We thought so, Van, but we didn't want to say it.
You would call us racist if we did of course.
But we are going to say it now because we're getting tired of that.

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')

YouTube:
"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."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnDxzvc0OXk&feature=related
_________________________________________________

"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
http://www.leftspot.com/blog/files/docs/STORMSummation.pdf
_________________________________________________

VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fh4Z0V0zNQg
_________________________________________________

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 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.

_________________________________________________

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.'"

Exactly and what is amazing about this is the total ignorance of Van Jones highlighted by this statement. He seems to be bragging about the complete lack of objective or critical thinking ability among blacks. He doesn't realize how bad he is making them look.

He doesn't know anything in particular (or anything at all, actually).

He's just black. It's what he would do, and what 95% of other blacks will do.

Obama could bugger a goat on the White House lawn and the vast majority of blacks would still vote for him. You see, they have to. They have no choice. Everything they have ever heard from their family members and everything they have ever been taught has conditioned them to support "their people" no matter what. To vote against Obama would be like cutting off a part of their soul.

You might think "What are you saying? That black people are too stupid to make up their own minds? That they are mindless sheep who can't reason for themselves?" No. What I'm saying is all their lives they have been taught certain things by everyone who has ever loved them or shown them any kindness. And the sum total of all those lessons is that, even if they disagree with him, they will vote for Obama. The Dems know this and count on it. The chains attaching blacks to the Democratic party are psychological but every bit as real as if they were made of steel.

I didn't know that. I always thought there was something funny about this mug shot though. Dude seems off.

Regarding Jones, I was listening to Glenn Beck's radio show a number of months ago when they played a clip of Jones speaking, and he just went crazy lissssssssping. I mean it was very noticeable. I had never heard this before.

He is usually a very measured speaker! He is usually a very measured speaker! But not thisssssssss time. But not thisssssssss time.

I'm unable to locate this clip sadly.

Seems like such a thing is a resume enhancement for working in the Obama admin.. I'm starting to wonder if anyone employed by him, including him, is straight...

Jones is just another opportunistic collectivist.

What he is now spouting was said earlier by Gus Hall:

The future of communism in America is the environmental movement.”

Hall was the leader of Communist PartyUSA.

However, Peter Berle said it more clearly: “We reject the idea of private property”. Petey Poo was President of national Audubon Society.

His Vice President, Brock Evans, said “Let’s take it all.”

Commies, one and all.

Be prepared, ‘cause these commies are going to join with the Muslims and force us into a war.

PS. We have a Muslim in the WHite House and he has neutered us with his statement that we will not use nukes unless nuked first. That removed our only tool to deal with a billion or so Muslims.

Either prepare or buy a prayer rug, get burkas for the women in your life, and look for a discount doctor to mutilate the women once Islam wins in AMerica.

Islam Delenda Est - because of what Islam is and what Muslims do.

Same applies to commies, because history of both Islam and communism leaves no doubt.

He’s right, but for those that actually vote. IOW the blacks are so disillusioned with Obama at this point many have stated they don’t intend to vote in November. Those that do vote will vote for Obama, “’cause you don’t vote against blood”.

I believe the efforts to hang Zimmerman for Trayvon Martin’s demise are specifically designed to bring together the black populace, stir ‘em up, and reunite them for the election in November.

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

“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.
