"And then there's Van Jones, who recently joined the Obama administration, a special adviser to the president on green jobs.I thought I’d accidently browsed over to the Daily Kos in reading the Politico’s BEN Smith’s & NIA-MALIKA Henderson’s hit piece, “Glenn Beck up, left down and Van Jones defiant.” This article was a direct frontal assault lashing out against the conservative grassroots, Fox News, talk radio, the Drudge Report’s Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck .(see story)
Van started out as a grassroots organizer and became an advocate and a creator of ‘green collar’ jobs –- jobs that are not only good for the environment, but also provide good wages and career advancement for both skilled and unskilled workers,” –Michele Obama
Smith and Henderson left no stone unturned attempting to fault all of Conservatism for Van Jones’ self inflicted troubles. Jones a black nationalist, anarchist, and self avowed communist remade himself into a Green Jobs/Economic rights activist and presidential advisor, found it impossible to run away from years of strident revolutionary acts and words. Yet on the day of his resignation he found it easier to defiantly blame others for his situation even as the YouTube mirror of his very own words and actions were reflected back at him.
"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” he said. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.” –Van JonesJones chose to characterize the reason he resigned as a vicious smear campaign against him which is quite an interesting way of using the word smear. In the past the word meant to bring unsubstantiated charges or accusations against a person, but not so with Jones.
The groups or persons that the Politico and Jones have accused of smearing Jones have only use Jones’ own words, writings and videos of Jones in action.
It would appear that Jones is a victim of his own militancy not unsubstantiated charges or accusations. Jones if smeared is smeared with the nastiness of his own words and ideas. As proof that Jones only has himself to fault he has even apologized for the words of his present and of his past. First he apologizes for a derogatory remark he made about Republicans in general in a recent speech where he called Republicans A**holes.
I apologize for the offensive words I chose to use during that speech," Jones said in a written statement to Politico. "They do not reflect the views of this administration, which has made every effort to work in a bipartisan fashion, and they do not reflect the experience I have had since I joined the administration."—The Examiner.comAnd then there’s his blanket apology for his militant grassroots and community organizing rhetoric over the years.
"In recent days some in the news media have reported on past statements I made before I joined the administration – some of which were made years ago. If I have offended anyone with statements I made in the past, I apologize."—Van JonesJones apparently missed the Saul Alinsky courses on how to deceive white people. Instruction that his former boss President Barry Soetoro took and is successfully engaged in today
Soetoro I believe is a closet Racist not an open one like Jones. Soetoro in his own words learned the tactic of assuaging White people’s fears by appearing docile rather than radical as he so states in his book Dreams from my Father. Dreams from my Father pp. 94-95
To further demonstrate, The Canadian Free Press reports how President Soetoro uses religion to hide his Socialist Marxist tendencies and how he uses the veneer of an Educated Liberal Elite to hide his wanton Racism:
While [Rev. Jeremiah] Wright’s racist tirades against America would never fare well in electoral politics, Obama had learned from Alinsky to be sensitive to middle-class “aversion to rudeness, vulgarity, and conflict. Start them easy, don’t scare them off.”14Because President Soetoro was so well groomed by Alinsky’s methods of Rules for Radicals his velvet brand radicalism was virtually undetectable by all but a few who knew the Alinsky teachings.
From his own experience Obama confirmed that being genial is an effective way to beguile people:
It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied, they were relieved—such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.15
His genial demeanor explains in part why many Americans are drawn to Obama. To support him assuages white guilt for racial sins of the past, while at the same time they are reluctant to doubt him for fear of being racist.
They cannot admit to themselves that this nice, well-spoken man was mentored by Wright for two decades, is a longtime ally of an unrepentant domestic terrorist, and that he himself embraces their agenda. Obama’s charm is an effective tactic, one of those tricks that he learned .(source)
Make no mistake President Soetoro is just as radical as Van Jones, they are both community organizers they have the very same goals, President Soetoro’s method is more of the “Never let them see you coming” rather than the “In your Face” approach that Jones used in the past and now has had to answered for by the termination of his short political career within the Soetoro administration.
President Soetoro was also able to scrub his past clean but sealing all of the pertinent records that would have given Americans a look at his own radical days. When America is able to see those records they well see that Van Jones doesn’t have nothing on Barry Soetoro!
Until then these are the Soetoro records that remain sealed: kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, the original vault copy (OVC) of his birth records, and his adoption records.
And don’t insult us with that Jones don’t fill out his vetting questionnaire he probably would have been the first to do it. We know of that none existent vetting process of the White House. We remember Gov. Bill Richards, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, Tom Daschle, and Nancy Killefer, Ron Kirk and Adolfo Carrion, all went though the so called White House vetting process. None of them should have made it though but some did while other simply bowed out.
This wasn’t a vetting problem this was an ideological problem. This White House is drawn to this kind of radical, President Soetoro has always been drawn to radicalism. What do you think a community organizer is? Frank Marshall Davis, William Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright were but early warnings that Soetoro enjoys the company of communist and other radicals.
As for the Politico's reporting of this story, Smith and Henderson combined for the least factual yet most bias commentary in a supposed news article that I’ve seen in professional media that is supposed to be this side right of the Daily Kos.
This excuse for a report left me wondering if the Policio is ever worth reading again.
What do you think?
