WASHINGTON – The White House environmental adviser under fire for inflammatory statements made before he joined the administration resigned after what he called a "vicious smear campaign against me."

Van Jones "understood that he was going to get in the way" of President Barack Obama's agenda, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Sunday.

The resignation was disclosed without advance notice by the White House in a dead-of-the-night e-mail on a holiday weekend. It came as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.

Jones, who specialized in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality, was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the Sept. 11 attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

Congradulations America, we have one a small battle in the War against Obama's radical Marxist agenda.

Enough noise was made about this guy's racist and communist comments, agenda and past that the White House was forced to cut ties with him.

He actually said that a goal of the Civil Rights movement should have been the REDISTRIBUTION OF ALL WEALTH and reparations for slavery, and stated that it was his goal to continue that movement through the green economy.

hahahahah that guy was terrible ... im glad this guy resigned ... he was obviously a communist and obviously a radical. The things he said were inappropriate and hateful. Good riddance
what a joke a smear campaign ... lies and distortions? last i saw was videos of him saying "republicans are assholes" and Direct quotes from him saying he was very interested in communism in his adolescence and young adulthood

and i like how they soften up his previous exploits
"Jones, well-known in the environmental movement, was a civil-rights activist in California before shifting his attention to environmental and energy issues. He is known for laying out a broad vision of a green economy. Conservatives have harshly criticized him for having left-wing political views."
Starting marxist groups and teaching marxist principles to others is not civil rights activism
