Appearing on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner, former White House advisor Van Jones said even if President Obama came out as a homosexual he would not lose any support among black voters. Even though a majority of blacks oppose homosexual behavior and homosexual marriage, they will still vote for President Obama because – dare I say it – he’s black. And that’s a shame since the social and economic policies of the president will do them more harm. They’ll get more handouts, more preferred treatment, more excuses, and more poverty.
Van Jones is a Marxist who uses environmental, social, and racial issues as wedges to increase the power of the State. In March 2009 Jones was appointed by President Barack Obama to the newly created position of Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality until he said a number of stupid things, said George Bush was behind 9-11, and was sympathetic to known Marxist groups.
I was upset that Republicans forced Van Jones out of President Obama’s administration. We needed him as a foil, a prop to point out how radical President Obama and his policies are.
Even so, Van Jones is still the gift that keeps on giving. For example, at an Occupy rally last week in Los Angeles, Jones said the following about Libertarian principles of economic freedom:
“They’ve taken their despicable ideology and used it a wrecking ball that they have painted red, white and blue, to smash down every good thing in America. They say they’re patriots but they hate everybody in America who looks like us. They say they love America, but they hate the people, the brown folk, the gays, the lesbians, the people with piercings, ya know ya’ll.”
He seems obsessed with homosexual issues.
Maybe Mr. Jones needs to talk to black economists like Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams to learn something about how economies work. Socialism and Marxism make people poorer, the very thing socialists and Marxists want. This way, they always have a dependent class that will keep them in power and in nice cars and clothes.
Van Jones is making his money denouncing an economy that’s making him rich. He’s teaching at Princeton University where the estimated cost to attend is $54,780 per year. He lives off and denounces the 1% while speaking in support of the 99%. Do you think Jones goes around with piercings and dresses like a homeless person? He was voted #1 on the Best Dressed Environmental List that was sponsored by The Sustainable Style Foundation. What do you think is the first word that came out of Van Jones’ mouth after he addressed the Occupy crowd? Suckers!
He’s saying the same things to his fellow blacks. The policies that he wants put in place will make him richer and the rest of us poorer.
