Commie Van Jones to Start Socialist Tea Party …Update: Why It Will Fail

No justice!… No peace!…
It wasn’t that long ago that commie former Obama czar Van Jones called for violent revolution in America, now he wants to hold a tea party.

The Cocoa Party, One Nation, F*ck Tea Coffee Party, “American Dream Movement” was announced this week.
The Washington Post reported:

At last weekend’s Netroots Nation gathering in Minneapolis, liberal activists expressed frustration that they lacked the political power or media focus given to the conservative tea-party movement. Former White House environmental official Van Jones is hoping to change that with a new political effort dubbed “The American Dream Movement.”

Organizers are hoping to emulate the the success of the tea party, which became a significant force in the 2010 midterms, uniting like-minded people across the country who were previously uninvolved in politics or participating locally but not at the national level.

They hope to motivate unemployed veterans, struggling homeowners and other alienated Americans who are angry at Republicans’ desire to drastically cut government spending in Washington and collective bargaining rights for state employees in places like Wisconsin. And to lure those people simply struggling to find a job while worried about their unemployment benefits ending.

“We think we can do what the tea party did,” Jones said in an interview with The Fix. “They stepped forward under a common banner, and everybody took them seriously. Polls suggest there are more people out there who have a different view of the economy, but who have not stepped forward yet under a common banner.”

Jones is a former Obama environmental adviser who resigned from the White House in 2009 amid controversy over his past activism. But he’s lauded in liberal circles for his charisma and organizing abilities.

UPDATE: The Heritage Blog explains why this too will fail.

  • Way to go, Van Jones.

    Remember the fantastic success of the “Coffee Party” as a counter to the “Tea Party” movement?

    Oh, wait…

  • You just KNOW that their demonstrations will NOT be peaceful. They cannot complete their communist manifesto soon enough.

  • FurryGuyJeans

    Van Jones may very well have officially resigned in 2009, but more likely than not Barry is still listening to what the traitor says needs to be done to bring down the U.S.

  • Multitude

    Curious how well these top-down, hierarchy-driven movements continue to fail to resonate with the people, yet the elites in the Left don’t seem to comprehend why, perpetually cranking out faux people’s movement after another.

    Van Jones must have been a terribly lazy leftist who never read his theory. Vanguards are out, rhizomes are in. Even Zizek would point out that Obama and his merry band are little more than progressives of the Italian 1930s epoch. The American people fortunately appear to have antibodies to detect a fascist in populist clothing.

    More leftist astroturf.

    Oh boy, am I worried.

    The Tea Party BECAME before anybody organized it. It’s roots are those of the nation, it’s aspiration are those of the founders.

    These modern-day grifters want to band together their separate groups and use their numbers to take from the taxpayer and dole out amongst themselves. Never do their goals mention work or any individual initiative at all, it’s always about taking from others what they feel is due them.

  • jorgen

    I am panicking already … not!


    me thinks he needs a straight jacket…like that will actually work LOL

  • joe buzz

    I had a very similar movement not long ago…not sure if it was the coffee or the Indian food or a combination. Either way I was glad to get away from it…..

  • Auntie Em

    Van Jones, sir:

    (In the style of Antoine Dotson.)

    “You are so dumb. You are really dumb. For real.”

  • Just_Saying

    Dream Party? How about Nightmare Party?

  • FurryGuyJeans

    But he’s lauded in liberal circles for his charisma and organizing abilities.

    Throughout history true evil has triumphed because of having a pleasing appearance.

    “We think we can do what the tea party did,” Jones said in an interview with The Fix. “They stepped forward under a common banner, and everybody took them seriously.

    He must have missed all the MFM coverage that pontificated how unserious and silly the talking heads believed the TEA Party to be.

  • Redwine

    Jim – Please don’t call this Commie reactionary apparatus a “Tea Party”. Our Tea Party is rooted in the history of the founding of this great republic. Vannie’s action party is rooted in ant-American Commie thuggery.

  • Redwine



    UMMMM….We didn’t need to get paid to attend these events, and we even left the grounds cleaner than they were. It cannot be duplicated by the likes of Van Jones and other commie heathens, that think that WE are unAmerican.

    Bring it on Van….

  • eaglewingz08

    So Jones is going after the 25-30 percent of spendthrifts who still support the reckless spending policies of the Obama Administration, rather than the 70 percent who oppose it.
    Sounds like a winning strategy to me. (Shh-don’t tell him, let him find out for himself).

  • Cristina C

    Let them all gather & show what a sorry mess thousands of LOSERS look like. I don’t think they clean up well.

  • betseyross

    “American Dream Movement” —- seriously? Seriously.

    More libspeak double-talk meaning another proggie NIGHTMARE.

    Here’s how it works: Fairness Doctrine = censorship; DREAM Act = Amnesty nightmare for taxpayers; = psycho elites, leftist dullards faking tolerance; Media Matters for America = another Soros tool used to destroy America. Get it???

    Socialism is the fraudulent offer by an all powerful State that we each can live off the expense of others. Apart from how it breaks at least three of the Ten Commandments, because of how it is based on lies, coveting and theft, it also implies massive coercion and compulsion.

    In the last century, according to Yuri Maltsev who served as one of Gorbachev’s economic advisers, socialism consume the lives of over 160 million people.

    As early as 1920, economists like Ludwig von Mises and F.A. Hayek proved that a socialist economy cannot function and will eventually collapse. This is because the more that government intrudes in the economy in an attempt to make economic decisions, the more those decisions will destroy the very price data that all participants in the economy need in order to best allocate finite resources. This is made worse when one bureaucracy makes a decision based on economic information that was distorted by the previous acts of other bureaucracies. It is like trying to measure the height of waves from a motorboat circling in its own wake. von Mises called this the ‘information problem’. He said proper economic calculation was therefore “impossible”.

    Socialism is evil. It is time to call it for what it is exactly. To show how evil it is, Maltsev says that the highest productivity in the Soviet Union was in the early 1930’s when the KGB was murdering between 10 and 12 thousand people a day. He also said that it collapsed when the people perceived that Gorbachev could not bring himself to murder people for not supporting the lie of socialism.

    This is not an academic exercise. People like Van Jones are cut from the same bolt of close as those whom Lenin and Stalin sent out to murder millions in an effort to coerce the remainder to be perfect socialists.

  • pjean

    For such a “green” communist, Jones sure doesn’t know how to inspire an “organically” formed movement like the Tea Party. Sorry Van, but organic means it starts from the ground up and not from the Soros down.

  • Truth Teller

    Van Jones…what an over-rated retard…seems to be the way for leftists. Take a person that would have been labeled a “nut” just a few years ago…make sure they are a minority so we can’t question them, and then give them endless media attention. That’s the banner for these idiots…Van Jones, Obama, Jesse Jackson, Sharpton, Clyburn, Shirley Jackson, Whoopie, Oprah, the list goes on…

    Do we really need to be forced to hear what these mental midgets have to say? Oops, I guess I can’t have an opinion….I am White.

    Maybe it’s time for a collective Rosa Parks moment…only in reverse!

  • Truth Teller

    The Tea Party is the “Martin Luther King”…

    We need the “Malcolm X” version of the party!

  • Truth Teller

    I am afraid the era of “peaceful co-existence” with the radical left is nearing an end…they are desperate and will continue turning up the heat until the country ignites.

  • lynched1

    Yet another attempt at a “liberal tea party”. I’ll stay they are determined. Not to bright though.

  • kelleyb

    Is this the “bottom up” revolutionary movement that the left hopes will bring down the Government and bring about the radically change 0bama promised?

  • Mad Hatter

    If we get a Republican President, a Republican lead Senate, and keep the House, someone, either Ryan, or Bachmann needs to bring back the House Un-American Activities Committee.

    Another reason why November 6th, 2012 is so critical for the survival of our nation.

  • obfuscatenot

    So the Tea party folks are so un-important and ill-informed that the lefty-crowd is lifting their name to form their own group?!?
    Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
    Lefty is jealous that the Tea Party gets media attention? Seriously? I thought the media at large IGNORED any tea party function.
    I think lefty is understanding that the Tea Party folks are the taxpayers, not the hangers on who will vote for a snickers bar, and they are confused.

    Creating unemployment and luring “those people simply struggling to find a job” is called the Hegelian-Dialectic.
