Van Jones extremists views had no place in a civilized American administration in the first place. But evidently the radicalism of Jones did not discourage the extremist sensibilities of President Barack Obama who loves the Czarist mentality of old world Russia and made Jones an environmental czar of sorts.
After publicly calling Republicans “assholes” back in February (see video below), it was discovered that Van Jones had signed a petition attesting to his belief that the U.S. government and the Bush administration were behind the events of 9/11. Jones now denies it, but his signature indicates differently.
It took four days but President Obama finally realized that Jones’ extreme leftwing views can’t be so openly conveyed by those he appoints to serve him.
For Jones’ part he claims that people on both sides of the aisle have urged him to stay on fight. To that I must ask….Names please? Because those people need a serious beating down come election time.
In his resignation Van Jones wrote “On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me”. He added “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.”
Hmmm….so people who disagree with the President on taxing the air that we breathe in the name of clean energy and who oppose socialist medicine are distracting and dividing. Yet his standing before hundreds of people and calling Republicans “assholes” is what…….a focus on unity?
The point here is that after seeing how inept the administration was at vetting those he appointed to cabinet level positions, God only knows how horrible half of the people are that he appointed to non-elected positions of power and influence that Congress had no say in at all.
Van Jones is just one such horrible example.
In regards to this incident, one leftwing propaganda site, Liberland.com, which is run by Allan Colmes of Hannity & Colnmes fame, wrote isn’t “Van Jones saying what most Republicans are thinking about liberals?”
To that I must admit he is right. Quite right. The problem is that most Republicans are not a part of the current administration. Most Republicans are not sent out to speak for the President’s administration and advising him on issues such as green jobs. They do not have the same responsibilities to the administration that Van Jones did and most of all, while Republicans officials may be thinking that liberals are “assholes” none of them are irresponsible enough and reckless enough to use such language at a time when we should be building bridges between the political divide, not burning them.
Despite Van Jones’ claims that people want him to stay on, it is clear that he is too irresponsible a man to serve in an administration and it is clear that he is not the type of man who can build bridges of understanding and harmony that will allow Americans to get over partisan differences. It is clear that Jones has to go. It is also quite evident that President Obama is a poor judge of talent and quality because Van Jones never should have been appointed to his position in the first place.
As for Van Jones himself……Good riddance asshole! Don’t let the White House doors hit “ya where the good Lord split ‘ya.
I can say that because I am not a part of the administration and I don’t ever intend to be.
