It appears the reason high level Obama appointee Van Jones has such a deep seated hatred for America has been found: He was a nerd who was bullied in school and was "always picked last" in team sports.
In an undated interview published at Collage Foundation, Jones spoke of his growing up as a nerd and how he scammed a graduate degree from Yale:
When you were younger, what were you interested in?
I was mainly interested in journalism and poetry and writing. I read a lot of comic books, James Bonda lot of good guy vs. bad guy type of stuff. I was a big 'Star Wars' fanÉI played a lot of strategy board gamesI was basically a nerd.
Do you see any connection between that and the work you ended up doing?
Definitelywhen I was younger I was really small and I was always picked last for Phys. Ed, sports teams and stuff. I was a bully magnet, so I grew up with a really strong hatred for bullies and people who abuse their power.
I had a professor who encouraged me to apply to Harvard and Yale [for law school], which was almost unheard of for students coming from the kind of public schools that I was coming from in the rural South. I was accepted to both places, and decided to go to Yale because Yale didn't have any grades and was smaller than Harvard. I figured, once I enroll I'm guaranteed to graduate, so I can just go and be a radical hellraiser student, and they can't do anything about it. Which is pretty much what happened.
Jones also spoke about going to undergraduate school and getting internships and scholarships based on being Black:
I went to college on a minority scholarship. All my internships were minority internships...
So there you have it. Another tyrant working out his childhood issues on America.
Boy Obama sure picked a live one here didn’t he...
maybe you were picked last because you sucked at sport
Is he saying Affirmative Action didn’t make him feel good about himself?
The guy should have Biden’s job as chief foot-in-mouther!
Van Jones is Obama’s ALTER EGO!
That being said, I ain’t no Lying Elitist Commie Bastard.
Poor little Vanny. All of the other reindeer wouldn’t let him have any “skin in the game.”
Listen Jones, I had a lot of “nerd” associations in high school and I turned out to be an America loving Capitalist. What the hell went wrong with you?
Well, he was chosen by an AA president.
I’ve always held that the marxist left’s infiltration of our higher education system stands as the biggest threat to the Republic.
Conservatives MUST focus on changing the governing boards of these schools - otherwise they’ll just keep on producing more commies and America-haters!
Let’s get rid of the Diversity Czar as well.
Lord, I apologize for owning twerps like this on dodgeball day in phys ed class in high school.
A perpetual loser finally makes the big time.
Sounds like a movie John Hughes could have directed.
Only problem. This loser has the ear of the POTUS and the POTUS likes it.
Obamaq and Jones, among several in power now, are living proof that affirmative action without requiring excellence in the bargain robs the soul, leaving haughty, elitist scum pretending to be champions of the ‘underdogs’ while exploiting the very people they claim to care for.
