The wheels of Change go ’round and ’round, thumpity thump, up and down:
Barack Obama’s Green Jobs adviser Van Jones has quit amid allegations that he accused the same government he works for of murdering 3,000 Americans on 9/11 just to start a war with Iraq.
Jones submitted his resignation this morning. And in doing so, he saved his friend, Obama, the embarrassment of having to fire him.
In his resignation, a bitter Jones accused health care reform opponents of mounting a vicious smear campaign against him. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide,” he wrote.
That must be the same type of vicious smear campaign brought against FOX News host Glenn Beck by Colorofchange.org — which was founded by Jones. The smear campaign resulted in many of Beck’s advertisers boycotting his show. How ironic that Jones’ own smear tactics came back to bite him in the end.
In videos posted on the Internet, Jones, an avowed communist and racist, called Republicans “assholes” and referred to George Bush as a “crackhead.” Jones also released an album a few years ago containing anti-American rhetoric and racist, violence inciting lyrics. Links to that album can be found all over the Internet.
Are we surprised that the Obama administration didn’t properly vet Jones who has a police record in two states?
And why are we surprised that Jones was so virulently anti-American? Isn’t Obama also anti-American and hasn’t he always surrounded himself with radical, anti-American zealots like Van Jones, Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright?
Is it any wonder then that Obama slipped this nutcase through the back door of the White House by making him a ‘czar’ instead of a cabinet member — knowing that Jones would never get Senate confirmation because all cabinet members must be approved by the Senate?
Glen Beck is somewhere smiling right now.
