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?

DISSMAN, take a good look as
Unpublished

DISSMAN, take a good look as to the reason the "Fairness Doctrine" was ever brought up. It was never so that conservatives could get more exposure. In fact, the liberals want to shut down conservative radio. As for your conspiracy theory on 9/11, the Twilight Zone theme is playing.

disssman ...the original

disssman ...the original un-photoshopped picture of President Bush holding the book right-side up (from the Associated Press) is available on snopes.com (a liberal leaning group to be sure) along with the title 'FALSE" in regards to the fabricated story you seem to cherish. As for letting BinLaden's family leave the country the day of the attacks, that was for their safety. They weren't involved. Had President Bush kept them here, you urban legend loving nutjobs would no doubt holler that they were being falsely imprisoned, and rush to your computers to doctor up some photos to prove your point. President Bush is no longer in the White House (and yes, he's now former PRESIDENT Bush) and your continued bashing serves no purpose. It is nice to know however, the he will be written into history books as a former President and nothing you or your ill-informed ilk can say or do will ever change that. Oh, and give up on the fairness doctrine already... I don't care what kind of wings they glue to it or how hard they kick it in the butt...it ain't gonna fly.

help, if someone is stupid

help, if someone is stupid enough to believe that the book was upside down, you are wasting your time communicating with them. They are a lost cause spending all their time bitter about what other people have.

Then why don't we get rid of

Then why don't we get rid of Glenn Beck too? I know why. He is not working for the government. He is only in it for the money, and he is just spouting misinformation anyway.

Niko Mahs on Wed Sep 9, 2009

Niko Mahs on Wed Sep 9, 2009 11:24 AM What misinformation? Like Van Jones is a communist, well VAN JONES said it. That Van Jones signed a document that said 9-11 was a set up job by Bush, well VAN JONES signed it. Do we need to go on? Once again when those on the left have one of thier people in trouble the left attacks the person that brings the truth. The problem is not Beck or even Van Jones. The problem is Obumbler let Van Jones into the White House in the first place. If Obumbler wants these kind of nut jobs in the White House Obumbler will pay a price when the radicalism of these people is exposed. Not hard for me or you to figure out, why is it so hard for Obumbler?

Glenn Beck is just crazy

Glenn Beck is just crazy enough to put life and limb on the line and expose these characters such as Van Jones. Everything Beck said was a repeat of Jones' own statements and rantings. He told the truth regarding Jones and Jones just don't take to having his own remarks laughed at and ridiculed. He probably felt really proud when he made treachorous speeches and now Good ol' Beck has put it out there. Yep, the bare facts.

Don't know much about Mr. Van

Don't know much about Mr. Van Jones but you've really got a right winger's goat when he calls you a communist. That kind of ranting is a testament to Mr. Jones' good character. He stands accused of disparaging Republicans. But deal. A lot of non-believers can be accused of that. Mr. Jones is also condemned for wanting an investigation into 9/11. Republicans want 9/11 and its aftermath to be scared and above investigation. Don't be disrespectful! Never mind they capitalized on the opportunity to whip up a mob and attack Iraq. Of course oil had nothing to do with it! But neither did Iraq! The crowd objecting to a 9/11 investigation is the same people that don't want Bush, Chaney, Gonzale and the CIA investigated for crimes and torture. Those wholesome red-white & blue Americans are adorable to the right wingers but they're reviled by a radical who suspects wrongdoing and wants an investigation.

gawater You should substitute

gawater You should substitute Clinton for Bush in your rant. (I guess I should have said Democrats for Republicans). Remember Bush has even less time when 9/11 happened than Obama has had to get his office in order. 7 1/2 months is not nearly enough time to setup something of that magnitude. .............Does people ever think before they voice their silly ideas.

Isn't it amazing how soon we

Isn't it amazing how soon we forget the "W" appointees. Lets see we had the AG who ran around putting sheets on statues, The guy who outed a CIA agent, and on and on and on. Why don't the people who dislike, no hate, President Obama, come out and be truthful and say they just are afraid that a black man will be remembered as a great leader. How in the world you have the gall to step inside a church and declare yourselves as christians is beyond me. Just for your information, Jesus was probably not a blond headed, blue eyed young man with a southern drawl. More likely he was a dark skinned person with dark hair and eyes and he spoke hebrew because he was devoutely Jewish. I don't really know van jones, but if he wasn't any good and has been released, what is the problem? It appears the President did the right thing and fired him. Did "W" ever fire someone for inefficiency, after he had hired him?

disssman on Wed Sep 9, 2009 5:28 PM Ashcroft was ridiculed for the sheets, a DEMOCRAT named Armitage outed the desk jockey agent wantabe Plame! Why are you not upset about real CIA field agents being identified to Gitmo Terrorist by ACLU lawyers? www.newmajority.com/aclu-outs-undercover-cia-agents - Obumbler did not fire Van Jones he resigned....don't you follow the news? Oh I forgot the MSM only reports bad things about Republicans so you can be forgiven for being ignorant about Van Jones!

Carcraft are you refering to

Carcraft are you refering to the 12 year old terrorist being held the last seven years at Gitmo? And are you so naive to believe that Van wasn't given a choice , resign or firing? I am not really worried about people like Van. I am more worried about who my grandchildren will have to fight because of the 23 illegal trade pacts "W" made. You remember the ones, they are the reason jobs are being sent out of country. Or did you forget that little tid bit? BTW my President hasn't signed a new trade pact since he has been in office. In any event, please keep writting about "W"s people who should have been fired and jailed.

Dani what do you mean off the

Dani what do you mean off the deep end. You guys keep talking about the unfair "liberal news media". All I said is what we need is that program so hated by ElRushBo so we can level the playing field and give CONS a eqyual voice over the government owned airwaves. BTW broadcasting over the air is a priveledge and not a right, but I guess you know that.

What difference does it make

What difference does it make if a terrorist is 12? A terrorist is a terrorist....Besides, if their is a 12 year old Terrorist being held for the last 7 years, that means he was 5 when we caught him......I doubt dissman has any proof of this allegation.

If I'm not mistaken the trade

If I'm not mistaken the trade pact was okayed in1992 by Bill Clinton. I believe Clinton is a Democrat. I know Bush let it keep going but he would have had the whole country against him if he dared overturn a Clinton decision.
