In before all the MSM spin about how this was because "he called republicans assholes" and "he was a 911 truther".

He was, and is, a radical and a communist. He got caught by HIS OWN WORDS AND ACTIONS, there was no right wing conspiracy to bring him down.

How many others have Obama appointed with the same views? Stay tuned to find out.

Yep, THIS is what you should be worrying about.

Hopefully this is one step closer to finally being able to impeach Obama himself. The head Marxist Fascist Socialist Communist himself.

From the redlit thread: To be fair, it was a pretty stupid comment for a political appointee to make, whatever the stripe. If a Bush czar blamed the financial situation on irresponsible darkies, I'd expect his head on a platter.

Please clarify your post.

Are you saying that we should NOT be concerned that Marxists / radicals / communists should not be a concern to US Citizens? Do you think this is OK?

I just want to know where you stand on the issue before I engage in actual debate. Because, I *think* I see what you did there but I'm not going to be the one to say it, you need to say it yourself.

Oh, and I'm still waiting for some kind of reasonable, in context commentary on what exactly he did wrong. Seriously, I have no idea. Everything I've seen on him has been so laden with GARBL that I can't tell what to take seriously.

I'm saying that there are a few more problems in the Nation that you should be worrying about, other then someone with no power who made silly comments in the past.

Also, McCarthyism was retarded back then, and hasn't gotten any hipper with time.

But hey, I'll take it back. If this is one of the few victories then you can get, then more power to you.

He has admitted to having Marxist/communist ideals and lied about not signing/knowing about the "9/11 Truth" thing. If I remember he said he didn't sign it, they proved he signed it, then said he didn't know what it was, then it was proven he had to have been informed before signing it, then he was farked.

And I am supposed to be cool with that, because McCarthy was teh evil. At least that's what I learned in school, it was a witch hunt or something and McCarthy was behind it all.

I don't really care either, but companies don't want to be caught out in public supporting pretty much anything. You can hide behind radio but not TV. It's too public. If they run Glenn after the end of the month, they will be losing money on that time slot and supporting him with welfare.

Glenn Beck... On welfare.

Wikipedia entry (new window)
Jones' political beliefs and proximity to the President have been scrutinized by Fox News commentator Glenn Beck, who has done a number of segments about Jones on his shows.[34][35][36] Beck has referenced Van Jones' self identification as a "communist"[37] and called him a "black nationalist",[37] and a "committed revolutionary".[38] Beck also included Jones in broader criticisms he made of the Obama administration for appointing a number of "czars" that Beck considers dangerous to the United States of America.[37][39]

Jones was also criticized for comments he made about Republicans during a question and answer session following a speech given at Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative's 2nd Annual Lecture on February 11, 2009.[40] Responding to a question on why Democrats are having trouble moving their initiatives through Congress while Republicans seemed to be more successful when they were in control, Jones replied,

The answer to that is: They're assholes. That's a technical political science term. And Barack Obama's not an asshole. I will say this, I can be an asshole. And some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are gonna have to start getting a little bit uppity.[41][42]

Controversy over these comments and Jones's signing of the "911 Truth Statement" led to calls for his resignation or firing, first by conservative websites,[35] then by Representative Mike Pence, the chairman of the Republican Conference in the House of Representatives. Referring to Jones, Pence said, "His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate."[34] Senator Kit Bond called for a congressional hearing about Jones's "fitness" to serve in the administration.[34]

Jones responded to the criticisms by issuing a statement saying, "In recent days some in the news media have reported on past statements I made before I joined the [Obama] administration - some of which were made years ago. If I have offended anyone with statements I made in the past, I apologize."[43] Regarding his comments about Republicans, Jones said those comments "were clearly inappropriate" and that "they do not reflect the experience I have had since I joined the [Obama] administration."[41]


The 9/11 truth petition he signed said "for immediate public attention to unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

Sorry but I don't see a big problem with that. The 9/11 commission said everyone involved dropped the ball in a big old way. What's so horrible about asking to find out why said ball was so dropped?

Glenn Beck went after Jones because he was a founding member of the colorofchange, the group that started the boycott of Becks advertisers (but let's face it was our beer guzzling tit loving internet Voltron that got the results they just set it up) He hasn't been with the company in over a year but Beck went after him anyway. Did Jones have a interesting past? Yes. Did Beck take many things out of context? Of course.

In general, marxism and communism are economic ideas that have their pros and cons compared to capitalism.

Those in America that use the terms typically mistake these economic policies/theories with fascism, authoritarianism, and the like. These people are simpletons, yet these people are numerous.

Incidentally, communists/marxists would matter if a) they were numberous, or b) they were dictators.

Last I checked, America has a complex political system, and it's impossible for a single "idealist" to completely tear down the fundamentals of the government (one can bend or break certain laws, or basic ethical principles).

I'm not "in support" of people who identify themselves with either ethos, but considering the competition in recent decades in American politics...

Marxism is the concept. Communism is the result of a Marxist revolution.

Socialism is part of every Western democratic government in the form of taxes paid to various programs and is part of every communist government. Pick your poison.
