Van Jones is at it again. Yesterday at the “Rebuild the Dream” kookfest in Washington, D.C. he chimed in on the debt ceiling negotiations, comparing Republicans to hostage-taking terrorists and accusing them of putting “a gun to the head of 310 million people”.

Chances of the media condemning such recklessly violent rhetoric in this, the post-Tucson era of civility? Zero.

I love how lefties love to gripe about Bush’s unpaid wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Because obviously they’re such huge drivers of our deficit problem:

Compare that to the massive unfunded liabilities staring us in the face from our entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare:

      I was with you up to “go to hell”. I don’t wish that on anybody.

        Even though G-d makes the ultimate decision about who goes to hell…we can pretty much surmise Van Jones’ eternal destination.

    Sharpton and Jackson are getting on in years. Is this clown warming the bench?

      I think he picture’s himself as Malcom X part 2.

      Makes sense, doesn’t it.
      And he’s getting the ‘green’ social justice rant down real good, too.

    “a gun to the head of 310 million people”, that’s it? WoW, i thought it was more like 330+ million with the illegals from south of the border and the visa overstays.

    “putting a gun to the head of 310 million people” coming from a guy who comes from a group that says they believe in change at the point of a gun.

    Go figure

    Since the GOP have been the only ones to offer any plans, how is it they are holding people hostage?

    The Boehner plan doesn’t help anything and these leftist are still not happy with it so if that doesn’t prove we shouldn’t compromise with these people then nothing will.

    Memo to Rhinos. The left will never like you. EVER! If you want to be liked then change that R to a D next to your name.

    This clown is trying to pass himself off as the “new” Angela Davis. If you don’t know who she is, I suggest you look her up, she would be right at home in the company of Ayers and Dorn, in fact she is a contemporary of theirs, and she was tied to the murder of a Federal Judge in Marin County back in 1970.

    • Persephone

      And um…ole Angela Davis never got to have ‘White House Green Czar’ on her resume.
      So we are really in the twilight zone now.

      *bangs head on wall*

      • KenInMontana

        No but she did run as the Vice Presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA, twice, which I think is what Van Jones is angling for.

    I love that graph.
    Liberals love to ignore it, don’t they.

      Libs ignore the facts. In the words of the President, “They think that they can run the okey-doke on ya, bamboozle ya.”

    OK Van. I will say this once and one time only so listen up. I am white- so I am racist. I am a Bible believing born again Christian, so I am a bigot, homophobe, xenophobe and a terrorist. I love the US military, and a staunch believer in the Constitution, particularly, the 2nd Amendment- so I am an extremist. I came to America through the FRONT door, meaning I applied for my greencard over months of paperwork, time and money- so I am anti imigrant because I think illegals ought to go home. I am PRO LIFE, so I must be anti woman. I homeschool, so I guess that makes me a anti government propagandist. I love the founding fathers and all their wisdom, so I am a slave lover. I believe in a small government, whose main Constitutional purpose is for the defence of America and her citizens, so I am anti globalist and again, a bigot. Have I left anything out?

      Wow, you really are a degenerate and since I agree with the vast majority of your posts and feel the same way, I’m gonna have face up to it and change my ways or face the same decrepit life you do. By the way, you left out “independent spirit” which makes you a difficult hoop jumping tool. When you see the light and can look in the mirror and say “Now I am a useful idiot” then and only then will you truly be redeemed.

        NYGino, you caught me! I didn’t mean for anyone to discover my independent spirit- that’s the most dangerous part!!!

    He’s still peeved that he got fired in the middle of the night on Labor Day and had to slink out the back door of the white house. Hey, we didn’t do that to him, he did. When the truth came out about him, BO didn’t want to take the heat. Green job only means that he collects a huge tax-payer funded salary.

    Who the hell cares what this commie has to say?

      In agree with your sentiment but we can’t afford to not pay attention as there are those who DO care about what he says and that constitutes a clear and present danger to our freedom. We can’t kill them (option 1) and we can’t ignore them. We can get off our asses and reform this government. Maybe restore? I read where the Czech Republic is considering a ban on Communism. That is a good start to deinfestation. The Army had posters all over when I was in that presented the message of “Know your enemy” which is a valid piece of advice.

    I would like to see MSNBC install this flaming lunatic as co-anchor with Sharpton because that would have a real deleterious effect on their ratings and maybe their existence. Ah, yes, a dream at best but dreams are free. The disgraceful lack of awareness and lack of basic common sense in this liberal vermin infested country are great hurdles. What a catastrophe.

    Please.. Van Jones is a committed Anti-American Communist, and he is an Obama ally and confidant.. along with Bill Ayers, Benandine Dorhn, Francis Fox Piven, Richard Cloward, and so on.. who are bent on the internal destruction of America.. His and Obama’s end goal is to bring down this great Nation.. so, why would you want to listen to them.. These are the Domestic Enemies of America.

    Van Jones is such a joke. I’m actually beginning to pity these people. May god bless you Van Jones. Your going to need it.
