President Obama's "green jobs czar" is co-founder of a black activist organization that has led a campaign prompting major advertisers to withdraw from Glenn Beck's top-rated Fox News Channel program.

In recent weeks, Beck has done several critical segments about Van Jones, who was appointed as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.


Now Colors of Change, an activist organization seeking to "strengthen Black America's political voice" has led a furious campaign against Beck culminating in major companies such as Geico and pulling their spots from the Fox News star's daily show. The group also says it has garnered about 75,000 signatories for an online petition against Beck to be sent to advertisers.

You are correct. I understand that there's as much as $8 Billion in the Stimulus package available to them. Neat trick huh? Use your money to hire people to fight against you.

BTW, if you don't like it, you're RACIST!!

Liberals are elite fat cats who buy the illusion of support.

Dem victim groups hire young people to impress brain-dead journalists like Maureen Dowd ( who thinks it's still 1968 and "young idealists" are political) to flood town hall meetings. Dems have been doing rent-a-crowd for years.

The "press" has been blind to it for years. And how do we stop them? We mock the "journalists" who turn a blind eye to this type of manipulation. That's all we can do - dems have all the power - the Presidency the House - and the Senate.

Van Jones sought refuge in the words and actions of civil rights figures such as Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, as well as revolutionaries like Che Guevara and Amilcar Cabral. Scary dude... Read it

Who gave obamanation the authority to turn the duties of the President to 35-36 Czars who were not elected????

Article II sec 1 of our USC

It's up to the POTUS to decide how he runs the office. He can send out swarms of hunchBacked lackeys to do his thinking for him; they can fax their own executive orders back to the WH for a drooling BH0 to sign in the oval office.

If they are not official employees of the executive office, local law enforcement could make their life rather uncomfotable for their blatant disturbance of the peace.

I have no sympathy for him

Beck is one of the few people in the public eye who unfailingly promotes the Constitution and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. He is attacked for it, his family threatened, and you have no sympathy for him?

Perhaps you might rethink your requirements for being sympathetic.

You may not agree with that one statement, but Beck is literally putting his life on the line to put a spotlight on government corruption. We should all be thanking him. He is certainly doing more than I am regarding the fight for our country, and I'd be willing to wager that he is doing more than you are, as well.

No sympathy. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

You are wrong. The reason we have a Marxist in the WH is precisely because Pubbies—including actual conservative pubbies—do not call a spade a spade. Bush’s “New Tone” did nothing for him. In fact, it energized the left into launching more outrageous attacks on him.

Beck is drawing fire because he hit a nerve. We need to be hitting more nerves.

This clown is a real piece of work...

If a WHITE GUY with this racist of a background had found his way into the whitehouse, they’d be burning tires on Pennsylvannia Avenue!!

* Became a Communist in the aftermath of the 1992 “Rodney King riots” in Los Angeles
* Founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in 1996
* Was active in the anti-Iraq War demonstrations organized by International ANSWER
* Served as a board member of the Rainforest Action Network and Free Press
* In March 2009, President Barack Obama named Jones to be his so-called “Green Jobs Czar.”

Born in 1968 in rural West Tennessee, Van Jones earned a B.A. degree from the University of Tennessee at Martin and then attended Yale Law School. During his years at Yale, Jones served as an intern with the San Francisco-based Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR), which views the United States as an irredeemably racist nation and “champions the legal rights of people of color, poor people, immigrants and refugees, with a special commitment to African-Americans.”

Jones says that he first became politically radicalized in the aftermath of the deadly April 1992 Los Angeles riots which erupted shortly after four L.A. police officers who had beaten the infamous Rodney King were exonerated in court. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th,” says Jones, who is black, “and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”

Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. “I met all these young radical people of color,” he recalls, “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.”

After earning his Juris Doctorate from Yale in 1993, Jones relocated to San Francisco, where he helped establish Bay Area PoliceWatch, a hotline and lawyer-referral service that began as a project of LCCR. In 1996 he founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which, claiming that the American criminal-justice system is infested with racism, seeks to promote alternatives to incarceration. According to the Baker Center:

“Decades of disinvestment in our cities have led to despair and hopelessness. For poor communities and communities of color it’s even worse, as excessive, racist policing and over-incarceration have left people even further behind.”

By the late 1990s, Jones was a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who viewed police officers as the arch-enemies of black people, and who loathed capitalism for allegedly exploiting nonwhite minorities worldwide. He became a leading member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a now-defunct Bay Area Marxist-Maoist collective that was staffed by members of various local nonprofits, a number of whom had ties to the Ella Baker Center.

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 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 as “the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples.” (In 2006 Van Jones would name his own newborn son “Cabral” — in Amilcar Cabral’s honor.)

During his tenure with STORM, Jones collaborated on numerous projects (including antiwar demonstrations) with local activist Elizabeth “Betita” Martinez, who served as a “mentor” for members of the Ella Baker Center. Martinez was a longtime Maoist who went on to join the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), a Communist Party USA splinter group, in the early 1990s. To this day, Martinez continues to sit on the CCDS advisory board alongside such luminaries as Angela Davis, Timuel Black (who served on Barack Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign committee), and musician Pete Seeger. Martinez is also a board member of the Movement for a Democratic Society, the parent organization of Progressives for Obama. Martinez and Van Jones together attended a “Challenging White Supremacy” workshop which advanced the theme that “all too often, the unconscious racism of white activists stands in the way of any effective, worthwhile collaboration” with blacks.

In 2005 Jones and the Ella Baker Center produced the “Social Equity Track” for the United Nations’ World Environment Day celebration, a project that eventually would evolve into the Baker Center’s Green-Collar Jobs Campaign — “a job-training and employment pipeline providing ‘green pathways out of poverty’ for low-income adults in Oakland.”

Soon after attending the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2007, Jones launched “Green For All,” a non-governmental organization “dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty … advocating for local, state and federal commitment to job creation, job training, and entrepreneurial opportunities in the emerging green economy - especially for people from disadvantaged communities.”

In 2008 Jones published his first book, The Green Collar Economy, which focused on environmental and economic issues. The book received favorable reviews from such notables as Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Laurie David, Winona LaDuke, environmentalist Paul Hawken, and NAACP President/CEO Ben Jealous.

Jones has served as a board member of numerous environmental and nonprofit organizations, including the Rainforest Action Network; Free Press; Bioneers (which accepts the United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Report’s warning that “[h]uman activity is putting such strain on the natural functions of Earth that the ability of the planet’s ecosystems to sustain future generations can no longer be taken for granted”); the National Apollo Alliance (which seeks “to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs”); the Social Venture Network (which aims “to build a just economy and sustainable planet”); and Julia Butterfly Hill’s “Circle of Life” environmental foundation.

Jones was also a Senior Fellow with the Center for American Progress and a Fellow at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

In March 2009, President Barack Obama named Jones to be his so-called “Green Jobs Czar.” Jones’ formal title is “Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation” for the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

In a July 2009 interview with Newsweek magazine, Jones said he could not explain exactly what a “green job” is:

“Well, we still don’t have a unified definition, and that’s not unusual in a democracy. It takes a while for all the states and the federal government to come to some agreement. But the Department of Labor is working on it very diligently. Fundamentally, it’s getting there, but we haven’t crossed the finish line yet.”

If Bush appointed David Duke as a “czar”, people would call him a racist, never apologize for it, and hammer that point home till the end of time. We on the right, apologize for speaking “too clearly”, and not hiding our thoughts behind rhetoric. When we do speak quietly and patiently, using logic, we are using “code words” to express racism. The point is, why apologize for the truth? The right is accused of being racist NO MATTER THE CONTENT OF WORDS or meaning, why tell anyone on our side that is speaking the truth(Glenn Beck) to modify HIS words?

Don’t you get it people? You MUST make your points truthfully, vociferously and NEVER EVER EVER apologize, except to those you care about, and I could care less if my political opponents live or die.

You’ve got to admit, it’s one hell of a scam...

Democrats give your tax money to partisan-run “Non-Profits”, which use the money to elect Democrat Candidates, which are promoting things against your interests, all the while pocketing a VERY nice percentage of it in “Fees” and salaries.

Every liberal Moron in DC has a “Non-Profit Issues Group”, and they funnel slush money through these things by THE BILLIONS, now.

That is inflammatory and hurts the entire conservative movement.

What you seem to be advocating is to only say something that the media can't take and use against you. The media is our enemy, period. Better to just say what's on your mind. Now is not the time to go soft. This one little utterance of Beck's will not "hurt the entire conservative movement."

To the contrary, the Town Hall's have greatly HELPED the conservative movement. And these Town Hall's have been all about speaking your mind, resisting this fascist Congress and fascist administration, no matter how incendiary you may have to be, in order to get your voice heard and your point made.

More on the above....

Look at this clown’s “Ella Baker Center” green Jobs initiative.

“What Is the Oakland Green Jobs Corps?

The Oakland Green Jobs Corps will be a complete job training pathway for Oakland residents with barriers to employment. It will provide wraparound services including case management, soft skills, hard skills, and vocational training. Participants will finish the program with paid internships in renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The Oakland Green Jobs Corps will be based on the “Pinderhughes Model”, which was developed by Professor Raquel Pinderhughes. This “Green Collar Jobs” model can be accessed online through Raquel Pinderhughes’ personal website.

The Oakland Green Jobs Corps is expected to launch in early 2008, using seed funding provided by Oakland City Council.

The Oakland Green Jobs Corps will be administered by the City of Oakland’s Community and Economic Development Agency (CEDA). There will be a Request for Proposals (RFP), inviting workforce training institutions or other educational institutions to competitively apply for the funding. Before the RFP is available for applications, it will undergo a six-month design process, inviting input from the public on how it should be designed.

The money from the City of Oakland is considered “seed funding.” It will require some matching funds from a workforce-training program, and will also require other long-term sources of funding after 2007”

They get TAX MONEY from Oakland to train people for “Green Jobs”, whatever the hell that means, then they get FEDERAL MATCHING MONEY.

All the while, this clown pays himself a nice, tidy salary out of YOUR MONEY, and pockets “Consultant Fees and expenses” on top of it. And this type of scam permeates out inner-cities, all funded by our own cash.

“Beck called Obama a racist on national TV”

What part of HE IS A RACIST, do you not understand?

And Obama himself exposed that to MILLIONS of the sheeple watching live on National TV, in prime time, with his “cops acted stupidly” comment. He is surrounded by outright racists, as well.

To be afraid to describe something as EXACTLY what it is what these people WANT you to be afraid of.

Obama is a racist! Since when is it wrong to call someone what they are? It certainly doesn’t matter to anyone when Sarah Palin is called every name in the book when none of it is true!

I am not going to be a wimp and let these people run over me any longer. I am going to fight them the way they fight...DIRTY! We always lose because we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. TOUGH. It doesn’t work!

Jones said his environmental activism was a way to fight for racial and class “justice.” Jones was also “a founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM,” WND reported. (Green really is the new red.)

The group’s co-founder James Rucker gloats in an op-ed at the Huffington Post that Progressive Insurance and several other advertisers have dropped Beck’s show since Color of Change started promoting a boycott. Of course it’s not all that surprising that Progressive Insurance dropped Beck. After all, the company was founded by left-wing philanthropist Peter B. Lewis.

Rucker is a former organizer. He is also a co-founder of the Secretary of State Project, the group that helped to elect Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. Ritchie, a former community organizer who has worked hand in hand with ACORN, helped set the stage for Sen. Al Franken (D-ACORN) to steal the 2008 Senate election in Minnesota.

Now that Van Jones is in the news all the time, Color of Change doesn’t want you to know he helped start the group. Maybe having an avowed America-hating totalitarian radical on the group’s board is bad public relations.

The group deleted references to Jones on its “about” page. That page used to say, “James Rucker and Van Jones came together in the wake of [Hurricane] Katrina to use the organizing power of the Internet to give Black Americans and our allies a renewed and strengthened political voice.”

But now it doesn’t.

Color of Change invited people to sign a petition to spare the life of convicted multiple murder Stanley Tookie Williams.

It should also surprise no one that Jones was a senior fellow at John Podesta’s left-wing think tank/activist group, the Center for American Progress.

In 2005, Van produced the “social equity track” for the United Nations’ World Environment Day 2005 summit, which was themed “Green Cities: Plan for the Planet.” As a result of Van’s advocacy, the resulting Accords called upon the world’s mayors to: “Adopt a policy or implement a program that creates environmentally beneficial jobs in slums and/or low-income neighborhoods.” The adoption of these accords marked the beginning of the global movement for “green jobs.”

In 2007, Van helped the City of Oakland pass a “Green Jobs Corps” proposal. The City allocated funds to train Oakland residents in eco-friendly “green-collar jobs.”

At the national level, Van worked successfully in 2007 with U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), U.S. Rep. Hilda Solis (D-CA), U.S. Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.) to pass the Green Jobs Act of 2007. That path-breaking, historic legislation authorized $125 million in funding to train 35,000 people a year in “green-collar jobs.”

In 2008, Green for All partnered with the Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection to launch the Green For All Academy. The Academy trains U.S. grassroots leaders to effectively advocate for an inclusive, green economy.

Also starting in 2008, Van began serving on the Committee to Engage African Americans in Climate Change, sponsored by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.

On September 27, 2008, Green For All worked with national partners to produce “Green Jobs Now” – the first-ever “national day of action” calling for green-collar jobs in the United States. More than 600 communities in all 50 states participated, with more than 50,000 signing a petition that called for federal government action to spur green jobs.

In 1996, Van co-founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which advocates for juvenile justice reform, police reform, youth violence prevention and green-collar jobs. The Center’s “Books Not Bars” campaign has successfully blocked construction of a super-jail for youth, closed two abusive youth prisons and helped to reduce California’s youth prison population by 30 percent.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Van co-founded Color Of Change with James Rucker. Boasting 400,000 members, Color of Change has become the nation’s biggest online advocacy organization that focuses on African-American issues.

Van is also a co-founder of a new national coalition that promotes the idea of a national “Clean Energy Jobs Corps.” This multi-billion-dollar federal initiative would put hundreds of thousands of people to work rewiring and retrofitting the energy infrastructure of the United States.

Additionally, Van is a founding board member of the National Apollo Alliance and 1Sky, two national organizations promoting clean energy jobs and climate solutions.

So people who don’t agree with you should be ashamed of themselves? Look ashamed.

Well going against advice I sometimes give about rolling around in the mud with pigs will get you muddy as well, but I could not but help to take extreme exception to your statement. The poster you responded to said nothing about someone who doesn't agree with him being ashamed, but those that do not stand up for others who are out there standing up for all of us should be ashamed - Beck whether you like him or not stands up for freedom and our Constitution and the principles this country was founded on and takes extreme heat for doing so. It makes me ashamed that I am not doing as much as he does, that I don't put myself fully out there on the line each day as he does. Beck has nothing to be ashamed about, we need many more like him.

I sent an email to GEICO earlier and got back a statement that said that they do not take positions even though they took a position....

I am in the market for new auto insurance and probably would have gone with GEICO, but I don’t care how much money they’d save me they are not getting any of mine.

It has nothing to do with agreeing or disagreeing with me.

I just wish that people in general would be nicer. Offering sympathy to others is basic human kindness.

“Beck called Obama a racist on national TV”
Beck is just calling a spade, a spade. Anytime anyone disagrees with Obozo, they are called racists. We disagree with our congress people and we are called Nazis. The left can say anything anytime and I think it's time we, the right, started shooting back with the same ammunition that is being fired at us. Turning the other cheek with this regime, will just get you thrown in a gulag like the Communists are known for doing. Bring a knife to a knife fight, bring a gun to a gun fight, bring a tank to tank, eye for a eye and we just may save our country from the Obozo/Marx regimes.

Progressive Insurance is already far left. They already didn’t want advertising going to Glenn Beck. GEICO is a subsidiary of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. This is no shock.
