Environmental Radical appointed by Obama


You know, sometimes you CAN indeed tell the type of person you are by the people you hang out with.

The Reverend Wright,  you might be able to excuse. A terrorist that you may or may not hang with, no big deal.

What if you appoint one? What if you put a self confessed communist and radical into a special position in your administration. Does that make any difference or are we still just whistling dixie? Are we still telling scurrilous lies to harm your character and keep you from getting elected or are your character flaws starting to really show through?

President Obama – if what everyone was claiming was such a falsehood, such an exaggeration to play politics, why did you appoint Van Jones as your environmental special adviser.

Want to hear some quotes from him?

Let’s try this one:

“I’ll work with anybody, I’ll fight anybody if it will push our issues forward,” he told the left-leaning East Bay Express in a 2005 interview. “I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”

Maybe this one?

Speaking to the East Bay Express, Jones said he first became radicalized in the wake of the 1992 Rodney King riots, during which time he was arrested.

“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.”

“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.’ 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,” he said.

Want to know more about his organization – STORM?

Jones was a founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That organization had its roots in a grouping of black people organizing to protest the first Gulf War. STORM was formally founded in 1994, becoming one of the most influential and active radical groups in the San Francisco Bay area.

STORM worked with known communist leaders. It led the charge in black protests against various issues, including a local attempt to pass Proposition 21, a ballot initiative that sought to increase the penalties for violent crimes and require more juvenile offenders to be tried as adults.

The leftist blog Machete 48 identifies STORM’s influences as “third-worldist Marxism (and an often vulgar Maoism).”

What country are we living in? What time/space warp did Obama suck us into?

  2. Thank you for the comment. I just started my blog so i’m not exactly sure how to use the site but it’s nice to see some conservatives on here!

    Obama has been the most radical, leftist President in this country’s history, and he has only been in office 100+ days. We can only hope Republicans do not take the advise of Colin Powell and move towards the center. Stick to conservative values.
