Skip to comments.Van Jones: ‘Occupy…Saved the Entire Country From Destruction’
Posted on 04/01/2012 9:37:36 AM PDT by Nachum
Former Obama administration green jobs czar Van Jones said Saturday the Occupy Wall Street movement essentially saved the entire country from destruction.
Jones made the comments in Los Angeles ahead of his appearance at an All in for the 99% training event, saying Occupy disrupted the narrative as both parties barreling toward more austerity.
[The] Occupy movement pretty much saved the entire country from destruction, Jones said in an interview posted online. Both political parties were barreling toward more austerity, more cutbacks, more pain for the people and more basically both political parties had managed to converge on this idea of basically no rules for the rich, no rights for the poor, no middle class to speak of. That was basically the agenda, the question was just how much pain how fast.
Occupy Wall Street came on and completely disrupted the narrative, he said. All the austerity, austerity, cut, cut, cut stuff went away and suddenly even Republicans had to talk about income inequality and that whole theme. Occupy Wall Street really kind of, like, helped us to hit a reset in the country.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Van Jones is a fool every day of the year, not just April 1.
It’s Van’s world! It’s Van’s world! It’s party time. It’s excellent
Is Van Jones out of his mind?
I know, I know. It was a rhetorical question.
I am sure crapping on a cop car has made the world a safer place-—I’m just not sure what it has made it safer for.
I would love to see the UFO that dropped him here.
I'd like talk about the inequality of Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, John Kerry, and Warren Buffett.
I always knew Jones was loony toons. He ain’t right in the head.
Obama has been handing out skittles at an astronomical rate!
The Occupy movement was phony and it was was directed by the Obama Administration to distract from the out of control spending and corruption in the government.
It was used to change the MSM narrative from the actual problems facing this country to idiotic discussions about the “99%” etc.
And it worked to a degree. The MSM spend no time discussing the actual problems facing this country. All the discussion is about dividing America. By race, by income, by gender etc.
All the MSM discussion focuses on victims and entitlement.
Occupy was about the Obama Administration propaganda campaign. Van Jones said so. He was part of the Obama Administration.
I fixed your April Fool's Day Headline.
Handing out skittles and selling gray hoodies, with the words, Obama - 2012!

VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')
"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."
"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
VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"
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 wed come out with a maximum program the very next day, theyd 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 were not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it wont be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, thats a process and I think thats whats 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.'"
I would love to see the UFO that dropped him here.
UFO’s don’t transport Communists. Satan does that.
A bottomless one.
