Well, it seems that the right-wing noise machine has succeeded in hounding Van Jones from his position as Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality (aka “Communist CZAR!!!”). That’ll teach that uppity radical for founding Color of Change, an organization that launched a successful boycott of Glenn Beck and Fox News! Congratulations, wingnuts.
Like many perhaps, I didn’t know much about Van Jones, so I decided to check out some of his past speeches such as the following keynote at the Texas Energy Future conference held at the Texas Capitol back in February of this year.
You can see quite clearly what a wild-eyed extremist this guy is, huh? All that “crazy talk” about thrift, savings, re-building the economy along the lines of production instead of consumption, etc. Madness, I tell you, madness!
