Van Jones: Not Just a Commie, Truther, & Liar… But a Saddam Supporter, Too
Commie-Truther Van Jones was back in the news this week.
On Wednesday Van Jones explained his resignation from the Obama administration for the first time to Tavis Smiley. Jones said six years ago a group that said it represented 9-11 families approached him and he offered his support. “They went and put my name on some abhorrent crazy petition that I never saw and it just sat there on its website for years. Somebody discovered it and then ‘boom.'”
But, that explanation is not quite accurate…
The group 9-11 Truth.org disputes this. The spokesman said last fall that Jones (quote) “Did agree with that statement and he did sign on to it.”
Van Jones is yet to explain why he cut a rap album with a cop killer.
Jones released this hate-filled album with cop killer Mumia al-Jamal back before the Iraq War. Not only did Jones run the organization which sponsored the creation of this album, but he is also featured on the album itself.
And, then there’s this… On the February 19, 2003 edition of MSNBC’s “The Abrams Report,” guest commenter Van Jones stunned the other guests when he praised as “heroes” the traitors who were traveling from the U.S. to Iraq for the purpose of acting as “human shields” for Saddam Hussein.
MSNBC refuses to release video of Van Jones praising traitors as “heroes”.
Van Jones currently works a couple of blocks from the White House at the Center for American Progress run by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta and envisioned by George Soros. The center helped launch Media Matters For America in 2004.
The NAACP will honor Van Jones tonight with an Image Award.
