NOTE: The actual rally at which Van Jones spoke was on September 12, not the 13th as I originally posted in the headline and in the article. The source article was posted on September 13 early in the morning. I have changed the headline and article accordingly. Sorry for the oversight. Thanks to reader Kristinn for the correction.
Another shoe is dropping for Obama "Green Jobs" Czar Van Jones. This time, it's what he said on September 12, 2001 - just one day after 3,000 Americans were slaughtered by Terrorist Attacks on the United States, at a rally in Oakland, California:
A recurring theme of the speakers was the brutal violence committed by or supported by the United States government on a daily basis. "The bombs the government drops in Iraq are the bombs that blew up in New York City," said Van Jones, director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, who also warned against forthcoming violence by the Bush Administration. "The US cannot bomb its way out of this one. Safety at home requires justice abroad."In other words, Jones blamed his own country - not the terrorists - for the September 11 attacks. He could not wait to use the attacks as an opportunity to bash the United States, while most Americans were experiencing shock and a resurgence of commitment to defend the nation.
Not Van Jones. He consistently reacted as an America-basher, as someone who assumed everything about America was wrong. He acted out what he believes - that America needs to be radically changed because he believes America is the problem. Now, he's part of a White House that believes the same thing. That's what CHANGE is all about.
