This is Obama's "adviser" on so called green jobs and who knows what else. If you didn't already know, Mr. Van Jones is a self described communist and a man who has on multiple occasions expressed his desire to "change" this country.

One thing you notice right off the bat is that this guy is a radical who is trying to appear moderate. He even admits it in some of his speeches. A lot of what he says reminds me of what we heard from Reverend Wright. The man who practically raised Barack Obama for 20 years. This is an an extreme racist ideology that demonizes white America and is Marxist at its roots.

This guy needs more media attention and Obama needs to explain how this guy was vetted. Its not just this man either, but a few other questionable people like John Holdren. Although, I highly doubt we will. The MSM just isn't invested in being critical of this government. We're left with entertainers like Beck who are apparently the only ones interested in journalism.

Because no black person could possibly have made that decision right?

Or is he furthering the notion that black people can't hold high positions?

Either way this, being half black and half white, is VERY infuriating!

When is it going to stop if the minority keeps racism going?

When a new burden of proof is required OTHER than the offended party's assertion.

Until that time ALL 'ism' offenses are a matter of perception of the offended; We used to be able to trust that courts and the judiciary was honorably dedicated to principles which exclude political or other tools of bias. That time was ended by a process the citizens had little to do with. Thank you ABA.

Before I say anything, here are a few points:
I am not a racist. I have a lot of friends are from different walks of life. But to outright make a statement that people are being poisoned and not even going through and stating how, or with what, kind of makes one wonder, what is going on. A person can be judged by the company he is keeping, and by what gets done when he is not around at work. But that is just outright insulting. Free speech is one thing, but the rules are going in such a way that it is a one way street. If a white person made such a blanket statement, then he is called either a racist or a bigot, but if someone of african descent makes it, well then it is alright. I think that the green CZAR needs to be informed that he needs to be more PC in his speech or someone needs to raise a lawsuit against him for such. After all what is good for the goose is definately good for the gander.

What a racist nut job. No wonder he is a 'czar.' He would never pass a confirmation hearing- well, maybe with this Senate...
If there is more pollution in black communities, it is because urban black communities tend to be poorer. Housing costs less when it is near a factory, as opposed to those next to parks and shopping centers.

Exactly and also flood zones. Flood zones = water collection areas that are pools of poison... especially in places like NJ.

This is getting down right scary. Either we are dealing with people who are so incredibly stupid as to not be able to see anything beyond their race. Or, they are intentionally put in these positions as provocateurs to push this nation into a civil war. It's becoming more clear day by day why Americans are buying guns and ammo at a rate never seen before.

This is an out of context edited clip which is designed expressly to raise right wing left wing issues and incite racism. It is clearly designed to inflame the passions of white people in a racist manner. The links subsequent to the video have no bearing on the preceding video other than to link the speaker to other positions and paint a generalised far right wing political extremist and racist post - MODS.

Look at the younger generation; people in elementary, middle, high school, college and just starting to enter the workforce. Do they care about race? Are they religious? Basically the people in charge right now were raised during the time when race was a major issue. They never let it go. They just hold on to whatever and it just makes their lives worse.

We see kids play around with each other, no matter what race, religion, etc. We were all *taught* about this *hate* when we were growing up. The newer generation doesn't care about race, ie: interracial marriages, gay marriages, or whatever. The older society see this and starts *talking* and tries to do something about it when it doesn't matter anymore.

Just like the conflicts in the middle east, asia and all around the world. Who are the people fighting, age wise. Why do they fight against each other? Who started it? If you ask, no one really knows and you see their kids suffer. (I saw this a lot when I was deployed to Iraq.)

One great example, go to any university in the United States or other countries. You see everyone from every religion, nationality, race all going to school together, working together and even starting families together, but you see their parents saying no because of what they were raised up with. We see it as stupid conflict and when we ask why or how it started, no one can really give a definite answer except that they are this and not like us...

And they say the older adults are more mature...

I have come to the conclusion that you are either delusional or a disinfo agent. This is what this mans beliefs, all one has to do is read what HE HIMSELF has wrote about his past.

You can find FULL clips of this mans speeches, they say the same thing. How bout you research this man a little bit before you go making claims you clearly have no knowledge of.

Jones views environmental activism as a means to advance the ultra lefts Orwellian notion of "justice." He has referred to himself not only as a "communist," but as a "rowdy black nationalist" in HIS OWN WORDS.

Mr.Jones was a San Francisco Bay Area radical agitator,a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, waging war on the police and capitalist system. He was arrested many times, even serving a prison term.

Quote by Van Jones:

“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…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th..By August, I was a communist.”

Im at the point where arguing with you is futile, because youll just ignore the facts. How bout you do some research on the guy, and then watch some of his FULL speaches, it becomes pretty apparent.

Im also curious, for someone who doesnt live here in the U.S , you sure to take a HUGE interest in the politics here. Interesting that


I prefer to back up my accusations with facts, and the facts on this man are downright disturbing.

Take the trolling somewhere else.

while in the long run,,, i think i'm not gonna like this guy,,,,,

he is somewhaqt right,,,,, i remember watching an old 20/20 dateline show
a chemical co. purposelly moved to a little alabama town,,,, mostly poor black "country" folk and opened a factory and dumped excess chemical everywhere and polluted the land and water supply and then got up and left,,, and then when caught i think claimed bankruptcy to be cleared of any wrongdoing


almost the whole town is getting cancer ,,, most dying at around 50 of cancer,,, and almost everyone tested had some high levels on a test that was a precursor to cancer

so in essence he's right,,,, but he sure is lumping the many into the few


and i just saw this video,,,,, so while he's right,,, he seems to be an overall a-hole
playing on fears, racism and etc. to spur division and hate

Yes! Provocateurs but the problem is... the people who are suppose to be provoked... aren't getting off their butts. I guess they have been Jesse Jackson and Al Sharptoned to death that it has made them passive. Next the governement will have to start handing out weapons in the ghetto to get this party started.

That is true, he might be making reference to such, but make direct reference, you don't turn around and make a statement that is vague. To do such is what fuels the fires of the question of racism. And it reeks of such. Something tells me that he is gearing up to make regulations and policy. If he is suppose to be a green jobs czar, I do not see it, nor do I see the plans for jobs or even anything that would indicate such. I am talking about the basics, like advertisments for jobs to get the hiring process started to bring jobs to the country. So I think he is just biding his time and trying to come up with something that is going to be a big show that many will refuse cause his credability is shot.

Fools like this who cry racism willy-nilly do a disservice tho those who may actually be a victim of racism. Here's another example-

Lack of Polling Sites Seen as Racial Bias




Man Sues to Expand Voting Options
By Jonathan Mummolo
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, September 3, 2009

To cast his ballot in next week's referendum in Laurel, resident Adrian Rousseau will have to travel to a nearby senior center where citywide elections have been held for decades, seven-tenths of a mile from his home.

But because this will be the only polling place open for Tuesday's vote, rather than the several sites used in county, state and federal elections, Rousseau, who is African American, has filed a civil lawsuit accusing the city of racial discrimination.

He says that he should be able to vote where he does in presidential elections, at Laurel High School about a mile from his home, and that the city should offer five polling sites to accommodate the city's more than 13,000 registered voters.

"I don't care if it's even further away. I just feel I deserve the same opportunity to vote where I always vote," Rousseau said.

The referendum in the four-by-four-mile city will ask voters about how elections should be run and about the length of officials' terms and their salaries. But officials say that it has been overshadowed by racially charged rhetoric. The seven ballot questions were written by a committee researching how to increase voter turnout.

"This is about a referendum election where mayor and council are trying to allow the community input, and that's kind of been lost," Laurel Mayor Craig A. Moe said. "I just think that's unfortunate."

Rousseau, who is representing himself in the lawsuit in Prince George's County Circuit Court, wrote in his complaint that he plans to run for the City Council next year. He says that the polling site is in a "predominantly white neighborhood" -- an assertion that several officials disputed, saying that the city's ethnic populations are interwoven.

According to U.S. Census data, about 41 percent of Laurel residents are white, 44 percent black. The city is divided into two wards. Tuesday's polling site, at the Phelps Senior Citizens Center, is in Ward 1; Rousseau lives in Ward 2.

City Council member Frederick Smalls, who was on the voter turnout committee, said that the allegations of racial discrimination are irresponsible and that they might be motivated by gripes Rousseau has over a funding request for the local Boys & Girls Club that the council denied. Rousseau, who is on the club's board of directors, denied that charge.

"There are four African Americans that served on this ad hoc committee. I'm one of the four," Smalls said. "So if there was any possibility of this referendum vote possibly disenfranchising any group . . . we would have spoken up. . . . As a person of color, I take great issue with someone using the race card to attempt to advance an issue that lacks merit from the beginning."

Like many localities, Laurel typically draws sparse turnout for city elections compared with gubernatorial or presidential ones. In the City Council election last September, turnout was 3 percent -- 402 voters. Two years before, in the mayoral election, turnout was 7 percent, said Kimberley A. Rau, the city's clerk.

Officials said they think one polling place will be sufficient for Tuesday's vote.

"Look at the numbers," said H. Edward Ricks, a former council member who chaired the voter turnout committee. "It doesn't take a mathematician to figure out the one polling place can handle" the turnout.

Rousseau is asking the court to mandate additional polling places or stop the election. It is unclear when the court will weigh in, although Rousseau said he expects it will be after Tuesday. Former City Council member Michael Sarich, an ally of Rousseau's, has sought to halt the election through a preliminary injunction. It was denied, but his case is pending in Prince George's Circuit Court.

Rousseau said he was encouraged to sue by a group of civic activists in Prince George's known as People for Change, who helped him organize a protest rally Tuesday night at the Boys & Girls Club. It drew about 80 people, some Rousseau supporters, some simply curious.

Laurel resident Shirley Bell, 57, said she could walk to the polling site if necessary but thinks having one site is discriminatory.

"Some people can't walk," she said. "You've got elderly people."

Officials said they were considering adding polling places in future city elections.

If this guy is a communist as he claims, you can forget about jobs, prosperity, racial harmony, laws, or anything else you hold dear.

When people are flourishing and prospering they do not turn to communism. Communism is mankind's cancer, that's why force has to be employed. It is the element of FORCE that makes communism different than mere socialism. At least in socialism you have something of a choice. Some European countries are socialist and somewhat free. Not so with the communist. They are pinned in as animals and are not free to travel to other none communist countries. Free people do not take communism willingly.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, good can become of having a self proclaimed communist in the position in is in. Obama and who ever else put him in that position know this. That's why they put him there. Get it?

Want some "change you can believe in"? Your about to get it! the same type of "change" Joe Stalin, and Moa se tong, brought to their countries.

So I guess the deal is if you speak out about 911 being an inside job then you can't be in the club? Seems to me that a bunch of wackos are running things now. That can only mean internal disorder which makes us vulnerable to a terrorism attack.
