So, someone else at the White House doesn’t like Americans standing up against the Obama Administration. “Green Czar” Van Jones called the Republican politicians who are attempting to slow or stop the injection of Socialism into our country “assholes”.
From FoxNews: Van Jones, the Obama administration's "green jobs" adviser, told a group of listeners earlier in the year that the reason Republicans are stonewalling the president is because they're "assholes."
Jones' remarks were recorded in a video from February that was posted to YouTube.
He made the remark during an energy lecture in Berkeley, Calif., after a woman in the audience asked him why President Obama and congressional Democrats were having trouble moving legislation -- even though Republicans, with a smaller majority, didn't have as much trouble earlier in the Bush administration.
"Well, the answer to that is, they're assholes," Jones said, to uproarious laughter. "That's a technical, political science term."
Now I am not one to argue with a Yale education, but I doubt if this is a true political science term.
The questioner responded, "I was afraid that that was the answer."
A woman from Berkeley agreed with him? I can almost smell the Patchouli oil, B.O and weed residue from here. It amazes me that there are parts of America so far removed from what our country stands for that they might as well be on another planet.
But Jones said that, even though Obama is "not an asshole," others have to step up the fight.
"Now, I will say this. I can be an asshole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity," he said.
Is “uppity” code for starting the Peoples Revolution? It must be, because Van Jones is a Communist. What? You didn’t see that on CNN? Well, here is an excerpt from the last bastion of truth in America.
From Wikipedia: Early activism
In 1992, while still a law student at Yale, Jones participated as a volunteer legal monitor for a protest of the Rodney King verdict in San Francisco. He and many other participants in the protest were arrested. The district attorney later dropped the charges against Jones. The arrested protesters, including Jones, won a small legal settlement. Jones later said that "the incident deepened my disaffection with the system and accelerated my political radicalization." His outrage over the verdict radicalized him: Jones said he was "a rowdy nationalist" before the King verdict was announced. By August of that year, he said, "I was a communist." Former employer Eva Paterson counseled him to rethink his tactics and to work for change in wiser ways. "In time, he jettisoned his youthful notions and moved on to seek more effective and attainable solutions," Paterson says. Jones's activism was also spurred on by witnessing racial inequality in New Haven: “I was seeing kids at Yale do drugs and talk about it openly, and have nothing happen to them or, if anything, get sent to rehab...And then I was seeing kids three blocks away, in the housing projects, doing the same drugs, in smaller amounts, go to prison.”
When he graduated law school, Jones gave up plans to take a job in Washington, D.C., and moved to San Francisco instead. He got involved with Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a group explicitly committed to revolutionary Marxist politics whose points of unity were revolutionary democracy, revolutionary feminism, revolutionary internationalism, the central role of the working class, urban Marxism, and Third World Communism. While with STORM, Jones actively began protesting police brutality.
Thank you American’s Higher Education system. Breeding ground of the Red Menace. McCarthy was wrong to target Hollywood, he should have hit the Ivy League instead.
Well, fellow Americans, is that what we are now reduced to? Because we dissent, because we don’t proscribe to Marxism, because we want moral government, fiscal responsibility and personal freedom, we are assholes?
I for one am proud to be an asshole. I join a long line of assholes including Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Payne, Sam Adams and John Hancock, who King George of England once referred to as “that bunch of Colonial assholes”.
Call me names if you wish, but just remember what that asshole Jefferson said: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
What an asshole.
What an asshole.
