Not shocked. That’s why a lot of the anti gay marriage ballet initiatives in states like California that is heavily left pass. Blacks and Hispanics are not gay friendly (in general), even though both groups vote for liberal dems.

The only way Obama would lose the black vote is if he came out as a Conservative ..... yup, that would do it.

Why would he say something like THAT?! Trial balloon? Maybe he knows something that most people have already figured out about this guy.

I had a similar thought. Perhaps Van Jones is telling us that Obama IS Gay...but just has not "come out." ???? Very strange comment.

It would help explain his taste in women.

Speaking of women, there was a website that pointed out it was strange that no women in his strange past have come forward about dating, etc....hmmmm.

Obama wouldn’t lose the black vote even if he came out and said his white half had shot Trayvon Martin in cold blood.

That was a good one, lol! White liberals wouldn't care either!

If Soetoro had killed Trayvon they would have blamed it on a white negro.

White negro Halfrican-American would be Obama given his parentage.

It is a very strange comment for sure. Don't know why he would even go that route unless...

"Kinda’ think that we’re being set up for the eventual showing of a Brietbart video of our impostor in chief being shown as a pillow biter. Thus, he can come out and hope the furor dies down. Isn’t this man-child something?"

Bump. But if the videos or whatever are recent, as in Reggie Love or his young hollywood star that he "kept" for a while in DC, THEN he has a problem with a lot of "folks"...using one of his favorite folksy words.

I think that when he sang that Al Green song line "I'm so in love with you," he was sending a message to Reggie...he was missing him and couldn't otherwise communicate with him lest he be exposed.

Well, this story may fade away as most negative stories about Obama tend to do. But it was an interesting remark from Jones - considering that he was smiling when he said it. Ah, the arrogance!

" I thought gay was supposed to be a good thing.Now he sort of admits that maybe it isn't."

Yep. It's like saying "Even if Obama came out as a bank robber...."

Jones sounds like he's stating something negative...something that if it WEREN'T true he'd sound homophobic by all counts. And he most certainly wouldn't want to sound like that unless he NEEDED to...because he needed to soften the blow of the gay truth.

Anyone know Van Jones’ “predilections”?

Blacks may not care if Bath-House Barry is a pansy, BUT...they might care that other gay men that knew Barry personally may have met with untimely deaths.

The mask is off now that “my people” Holder’s DoJ is openly and blatantly practicing racism. No more “why can’t we all just get along”. That meme has outlived its usefulness, only naive whites haven’t gotten the message. They’re too busy voting for “America’s Next Greatest Dancing Survivor” or something.

That picture, I just don’t know. Looking at Taylor’s body language, she is leaning away from MO. And MO seems to be desperately trying to look like she actually DOES like touching white people.
I envision her taking a long, angry, hot shower afterwards and scrubbing her skin until it bleeds.

that’s the problem! With Black’s it’s ALL about skin color, and to a lesser extent “getting over” on Whitey, plain and simple. They wouldn’t change their vote even if it meant the decimation of their race. If you doubt that statement, I give you Detroit and Washington DC.

What’s really sad is that anyone without internet access doesn’t know that zero is a homosexual. I told my dad recently (in his 80’s) all about zero and the “Down Low Club” and he was shocked! He is certainly not a zero supporter, but he was so surprised to learn that zero is a homosexual. The main-stream-media’s best kept secret!
