The truth behind the 'smear'

  • Follow Editorials

Only a liberal could be "smeared" with the truth.

Van Jones, President Obama's ultra-radical "green jobs" czar, resigned just after midnight Sunday morning -- as if to say he were being wrongfully executed -- and supporters are portraying him as a patriot and a victim.

He is neither.

His writings, utterings and actions prove him to be anti-American, racist and a self-avowed communist.

The "mainstream" media ignored those facts as long as they could, some even failing to report Jones' belated and half-hearted apologies last Wednesday and Thursday for his profane disparagements of political opponents and for his having signed a petition alleging our own government conspired in the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

So, his resignation over the holiday weekend probably surprised those who weren't following the story through alternative media outlets.

Jones -- who blames whites for pollution and mass killings, and the U.S. for the plight of Palestinians and other ills -- bitterly claims a "smear" campaign of "lies and distortions" brought him down.

OK, where are the lies?

Is it that he considered himself a communist? Hmm. His own words. Is it that he believed the U.S. government was complicit in the 9-11 attacks? Hmm. His own signature. Is it that he blames whites for pollution? Hmm. His own words.

So, yes, he's being smeared -- with his own words. With the facts. With the truth.

None of his toxic mess will spill over to Obama, naturally. The media would never hear of it.

But it must be asked: How did someone with such a radical past and outlook get so high in the federal government? And what about the administration's dozens of other unelected, unaccountable czars?

To answer the first of those two questions, two of Jones' biggest supporters are Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

"Supporters say the administration surely knew his background when they appointed Jones," wrote the San Francisco Chronicle .

Here's another question: How is it that so many radicals are so closely associated with Barack Obama -- from Jeremiah Wright to William Ayers to Van Jones and more? When is someone in the mainstream media going to ask if this is a total coincidence, or if this pattern reveals something about our president and his own beliefs?

If it walks like a duck and

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is usually a duck. This administration is either completely nieve or could care less about our country. Frankly I don't beleive they are nieve, I think they know exactly what they are trying to accomplish and so far, it isn't in our best interests.

The news organizations trying

The news organizations trying to hide or censor the facts about Jones are good examples of how responsible journalism shouldn't perform. Tigger, I gave up on correcting Ryan's grammar long ago. As Raphael Belliard, the former Atlanta Brave who had terrible English, said about himself after his 4th strikeout one game. "He hopeless."

Obama is a radical pure and

Obama is a radical pure and simple. Van Jones is just one nut case but not far from the health care CZAR and others in radical thinking. Obama admits to finding our Constitution deeply flawed because of the exclusions on government power. Obama admits to liking communist and leftest better than others. Frank Marshall educated Obama well as did Obama's grandfather, one of the average white folks, that raised him. The problem Obama has is that these distractions hinder him from being effective in the messages he wants to get out. This is the most undisciplined White Houses in history. Obama doesn't seem to realize these radicals and kafluffles distract from Obama's ability to lead. Obama may be more comfortable having folks like Van Jones around but America isn't and that makes Obama all the more suspect!

I just thank God Van Jones is gone! He will not be missed. His racist, Marxist mentality had no place in an administration that claims to want to reach across racial, ethnic, and party lines.

Unpublished

Because the all-white media (awm) have say-so over everyday content, every African-American male is viewed as dangerous, especially if he demands justice in a corrupted system. Their observations are always the same incorrect ones based on fear. Any Africa-American man speaking the truth is going to face barriers from the (awm) because of their fear of being exposed. New Media will continue to reveal the lies and Truth will eventually win out.

I agree with TechLover; overburdened taxpayer, if the majority voted him in shut the h--l up! The silent majority is finding out they are the "noisy minority" and don`t like it! How`s it feel to have someone that you don`t agree with in charge? After 8 years of "Dumbya" I would think someone that can at least speak English would be a marvel...

Obama continues to surround

Obama continues to surround himself with this type radical. I can't understand how the citizens of this country elected a man with ties to so many communist people. The communist Frank Marshall Davis was Obama's mentor and taught him well. Why any American would vote for this man is still unbelievable.

Do I believe that "W" was somehow involved? You mean the same "W" sitting there reading an upside down book to kids, the same guy who kept reading even after being told of the tragedy? You mean the same administration that allowed Ben L's family to fly back to Saudi on the day of the attack. No nothing suspicious in his background. I do agree with the writer that the main stream media is way too powerful and totally slanted to the democracts point of view. That is why we need to implement the fairness doctrine to level the playing field and allow CONServatives the ability to get their message out, now they are barely able to get air time.

The best thing that came from

The best thing that came from this is now Congress is asking questions about O's entire czar program. This level of appointees has never before been used or needed . Someone should check on WHY O thinks he needs all these radical advisors.

" I can't understand how the citizens of this country elected a man with ties to so many communist people." posted by getalife. It was easy, they were tired of Bush and an eloquent speaker came along offering "change" and they bought into it. Now he's not delivering the "change" everyone thought he could deliver and people are having second thoughts about the man they put in office.

What's the matter jb5365? If someone disagrees with your position you just tell them to shut the h--- up? Very democratic of you. Just like the other libs who don't want anyone to be heard but them. And you wonder why people don't like the left. Might it be because youtry to crush their individuality?

Obama is on record, video in

Obama is on record, video in most cases, as saying all of the exact same things Van Jones spouted during his "career" as a Communist radical. The only difference is that Obama used, as justus4 would say, CODE WORDS. Obama did not say "Yey Communism" like Van Jones. Obama used words like "redistribute wealth". Obama is JUST as radical and just as much a communist and a white hater as was Van Jones but he is more careful when he speaks. He has mastered Code Words and that makes him a lot more dangerous than Van Jones. Obama appointed Van Jones because he agreed with everthing that Van Jones has said and done. He is just a s bad. And it didn't take very long for him to show his true colors as a Communist and a Marxists. When you have a pretty good life, be very careful of any man that wants to "CHANGE" that way of living.
