Skip to comments.'View' Host Badgers Van Jones for Encouraging Left to be Civil to Trump Voters
Posted on 07/27/2018 12:30:59 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
CNNs Van Jones was the guest on Thursdays The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque When they go low, we go high approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being complicit.
The lengthy segment started with the guests naturally asking Jones what he thought about the White House banning his colleague Kaitlan Collins from the Rose Garden yesterday. He blasted the action, saying she did the right and only thing she shouldve done as a reporter. This is right versus wrong, he scolded.
Joy Behar asked Jones if the recent public shaming against administration officials was appropriate. Jones touted being raised to follow the Golden Rule, saying that their bad behavior wasnt an excuse to be a bad person back. He added:
I see Donald Trump as putting out a negative vibration that a lot of us are starting to pick up on, and we're starting to become what we're fighting. He is A.D.D. Now we're A.D.D. We don't know what's going on, and he doesn't know what's going on. He is mean to everybody, and we're starting to get mean. We should be registering voters who we can win the next election.
Jones went on to call Democrats to do the work necessary to defeat Trump in 2020. Sunny Hostin didnt like Jones soft take and asked if the work included speaking truth to power, meaning following the marching orders of Maxine Waters and confronting the administration in public. He said that was part of it, but the tone needed to be right. There is a way that sometimes we get so frustrated that we're calling them out and not up, he noted. After Behar acknowledged she hated being heckled in public as well, Jones buttered up the host:
Joy, here's what I think about you. I think you are on a mission that you are likely to fail at because you are not going to be able to out-divide Donald Trump, out-ugly Donald Trump, you're too beautiful and-- too good. [applause] Don't you agree? She is too beautiful, and too it's not going to happen. So listen. I believe if we stick up for what we believe in, I am in red counties every month. I'm talking to Trump voters every month. A lot of them feel the same way that you do in being disappointed in how he is acting. They don't know that you like them. They don't know that liberals love them. They don't feel that they can come over here. They feel like basically us saying, you are an ignorant bigot and you suck now vote for me, turns out is not very persuasive.
Whoopi agreed that is was hard sometimes to turn the other cheek admitting that periodically people are going to snap. She added with a smirk, I dont know why, perhaps referencing her recent outburst on the show against guest Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Hostin didnt like Jones equivocating. She pleaded: Arent you complicit? But Meghan McCain got in a question first and asked about Trumps high approval rating among Republicans being similar to Obamas popularity. Jones acknowledged that liberals would be proudly touting the Presidents achievements if he were a Democrat and needed to be better at admitting when Trump did something right. But he added that the left wants unity as well as jobs, (as if the divided country was Trumps fault.)
Finally Hostin got her question in.
But Van, aren't people complicit when they are looking the other way at the bigotry, at the misogyny, at the messages coming out of this White House? Perhaps maybe they got a little tax refund so that tells me because you got a tax refund, you don't care about what's happening to my community, my children, to the country. That makes you complicit in my mind! she ranted.
Jones nodded and agreed with Hostin, before basically repeating what he said before.
Towards the end of the interview, host Sara Haines encouraged Jones to engage in peddling conspiracy theories from the left about Trump and Russia. He happily obliged, saying that somethings going on:
HAINES: We are back, and we have held onto Van Jones because I think you speak such truth. Let's talk a little bit about the one-on-one meeting between Trump and Putin. We don't really know what went on, and we haven't heard consistent messaging. A lot of us think that Putin must have something on Trump. What do you think?
JONES: Listen. I -- if you had a "House of cards" screenwriter on crack, they could not come up with a crazier scenario than this. Before you even get to what they talk about, why did they have a summit at all? In the first place. Ever, like, there is no there is no reason, no agenda for -- it's like you had a plot. You have got to get these two people in a room together talking, and if I were the screenwriter, I would say well, you can't have a summit because it's a big buildup and you have to have an agenda. There is no agenda. Theres no reason for them to meet. But they are hiding in the closet talking. You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist at that point to say, something is going, there is something going on. [ Applause ] It doesn't make any sense. I have been a politician my whole life. Even having a summit that has no agenda has never happened. Something's going on.
OK, dems and libs.
Double down on the stupid.
Keep pushing like you are and see how it works out for you.
That kind of blindness has got to be from God.
He must be blinding them cause otherwise I don’t see how any reasoning, sentient human being could actually believe that attacking your opponent is the way to win him over to your side and convince them you are right.
“...’View’ Host Badgers...”
The View hosts look like badgers, so they’ll act like badgers, too.
Sunny Hostin’s IQ is near room temperature.................
Sunny Hostin badgered him... But Van, aren't people complicit when they are looking the other way at the bigotry, at the misogyny, at the messages coming out of this White House? Perhaps maybe they got a little tax refund so that tells me because you got a tax refund, you don't care about what's happening to my community, my children, to the country. That makes you complicit in my mind! she ranted.
IOW, the imaginary **** that she makes up should be the basis for the idiotic things she advocates. At least The View demagogues forced him to admit that he's lying, and that once the Demagogic Party regains power, it'll be able to go back to the systematic destruction of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and their political adversaries (that is, the American people). Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
Trump is creating hostility and it is making them become hostile, Good grief cant the left ever take responsibility for their own action?
"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 $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed . On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.' "
It seems so, and I would love for them to get in my face, sadly when the left protests they avoid me, even when I have walked up to them
STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," surfaced on the Internet."--via TheObamaFile
Foaming at the mouth leftists growling at a chest beating communist for being too calm.
I’ve dumped all my liberal friends. Won’t even acknowledge their existence. Won’t hire a liberal, either, since we now know discrimination based on political ideology is not illegal. We found that out because liberals started denying service and employment to Trump supporters.
The propagandists on the VIEW must continue to parrot what their Corporate Masters tell them to say.
In return, their Corporate Masters spend million$ trying to justify the anti-American garbage the View critters constantly regurgitate!
The resistance LOVES the View...
A Leftist encourages Leftists to be civil, and they respond in an uncivil way. That’s classic.
Van Jones, a voice of reason? Take me now, Lord...
