Green Jobs Czar Van Jones Resigns Quietly On Long Holiday Weekend

White House Adviser Van Jones Resigns Amid Controversy Over Past Activism.  The special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality apparently believes that his past actions are being used as “lies and distortions,” and are not worthy of scrutiny for the special government position he enjoyed.

What Van Jones Signifies nicely explains the background of the green jobs czar who resigned amid significant controversy on his personal statements and activities over the years, and more recent profane comments about Republicans in a public forum.  It also explains how such a man could be appointed to a high governmental position by a president.

Listen, for example, to Obama alter ego Valerie Jarrett pay tribute to Jones before a friendly audience earlier this year: “Oooh. Van Jones, alright! So, Van Jones. We were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House. We were watching him, uh, really, he’s not that old, for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that. And we have all that energy in the White House.”

Who do they have in the White House? A self-proclaimed Communist. A vulgar Marxist twice over. A supporter of cold-blooded cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal. A 9/11 Truther . A racist hater, whose hatred extends to the United States. And insofar as his current job is concerned, we have a man who sees the “green jobs” con as a tool for overthrowing capitalism. We have, in short, the complete left-wing nightmare package.

If that is not enough, see the headlines here and even more here that describe more.  So once again, how did this guy get through the vetting process?

Does Barack Obama believe that it’s acceptable to have paranoid conspiracists in high-level appointments, or was the White House simply too incompetent to properly research Jones in the vetting process? Because it comes down to those two options, and regardless of what we think of Jones, the blame for him being in the White House falls squarely on Obama (via RedState).

Looks like the bus stopped over at Jones’ place after all.

  1. “Quietly” you say?

    We’ll just have to make some noise, then. Won’t we?

  2. Van needs to take responsibility for his stupidity and stop trying to pass it off has hate from opposition. You can’t call it a smear campaign when all that’s being used are direct quotes and video clips.
