Van Jones

Reminder: ‘Root causes’ Barack Obama hired ‘9/11 truther’ Van Jones (to get the band back together)

Update, 9/09/2009: Michelle Malkin reports Charlie Sheen is demanding a meeting with President Obama to tell him the 9/11 ‘truth’ which makes him perfect for replacing Van Jones. Poor Charlie; he’s back on the hard drugs again (see note #3 at the bottom of this post).

Van Jones’ has a law degree so naturally that makes him fully qualified to advise the President of the most prosperous nation on earth on how to green the blocks in question that somehow became un-green. No matter that Van Jones first began learning about environmental pollution somewhere around 2008. If we don’t hire Presidents with the necessary knowledge and skills for the job, why should we expect them to do otherwise? No one should be aghast. Obama hired like-minded people, the people he likes, and those who will run the offices and agencies they head consistent with Obama’s thinking and policies. Van Jones is not just some low-level file clerk or the official dog-walker; President Barack Obama hired him as his communist community organizer to get the band of rebels back together.

Van Jones founded and directed Standing Together to Organize the Revolutionary Movement. What follows is a passage from STORM’s Spring 2004 after-action report (Van Jones obviously approved it) after he and his comrades stopped revolting under that name and assumed others, just like terrorist groups often do. They spawned other like-minded groups or infiltrated the mainstream to subvert our republic from within:

“That night [September 12, 2001], STORM and the other movement leaders expressed sadness and anger at the deaths of innocent working class people. We were angry, first and foremost, with the U.S. government, whose worldwide aggression had engendered such hate across the globe that working class people were not safe at home. We honored those who had lost their lives in the attack — and those who would surely lose their lives in subsequent U.S. attacks overseas.”

The self-described “communist” and revolutionary Van Jones is also a liar *; he willingly signed a 9/11 ‘truth’ petition:
