Skip to comments.Van Jones: Death to the 'great white suburbs'
Posted on 03/21/2012 10:37:49 AM PDT by kristinn
In a speech with racist overtones given at the Hawaii Capitol Tuesday evening attended by Governor Neil Abercrombie (D), former Obama appointee Anthony K. "Van" Jones spoke at a rally to promote so-called economic justice and fairness by legislating a green energy State Partnership Bank about his being glad that (according to Jones) the'great white suburbs' of the American dream are 'dying.'
Jones' speech was reported by Malia Zimmerman of The Hawaii Reporter:
In his keynote, Jones did not directly address the bank legislation or other legislation pending in Hawaii. Instead he spoke of the dream being under threat.
Not the American dream they talk about on TV, Jones said. There are two American dreams. One of them I call the American fantasy. You know that one? Everyone is going to be rich. Everybody. And we're all going to be able to ride out to the great white suburbs, get a McMansion, get flat-screened TV to cover up the holes in our lives. That is the American fantasy, which is turning out to be the American nightmare. It is dying out on its own accord - it deserves no defense and it will get no defense. I am glad that is going away. That was not serving anybody.
Since being forced out of the Obama administration in 2009 after his radical leftist politics were exposed, Jones has tried to portray himself as a 'happy warrior', even going so far as to tell his nemesis Glenn Beck, whose reports on his then Fox News Channel show publicized Jones' radicalism, that he loved Beck.
At his speech in Hawaii, Jones' happy warrior facade fell as he addressed his fellow radicals, accusing his political opponents of being bigots who 'hate' and 'despise' their fellow Americans:
I was there for 6 months. Best 6 months of my life, followed by the worst two weeks. ... What I saw there is why I am here today. I saw some of the most beautiful people, some of the most well intentioned people, some of the smartest people ever to serve in our government, be stopped in their tracks, stopped in their tracks, by people who mean us no good. People who claim to be patriots but seem to hate everybody in America.
That always struck me as strange. When I said I love America, I mean I actually love the people in America - the people who live in America. Some of them are brown, some of them are female, some of them are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, some of them have bizarre piercings and tattoos, but I love them. How can you say you love America but then despise most of the people who live here. I don't understand that politics. I don't understand how you can say you love America and love the Statute of Liberty, but then not read the poem at the bottom that says "Give me your tired, Give me your poor, Give me your huddled masses who yearn to breathe free." The way I was raised. You can't be an anti immigrant bigot and a patriot at the same time. They don't go together. They don't go together. Not in my America. They don't go together.
Ten-and-a-half years ago Jones organized a rally the day after the September 11 terror attacks where Jones and other speakers cheered the attacks that killed nearly 3000 Americans and foreigners on American soil.
What a pathetic POS. He has NO concept of what made America the greatest nation this rock has ever seen.
If the immigrants are whites from Europe, you can bet your butt Van would be the bigot
I almost eagerly await the coming civil war. These cretins seem to forget which on side the vast majority of the public, including most veterans and military, reside. It seems they also can’t read the newspaper about how many millions of firearms and rounds of ammunition have been sold just since 2008. Do they think the Occupy hippies and anarchists have been buying all those things?
There's a sentence that would make any grammar school English teach proud. How about we mix in a period now and then, Mr. Writer?
The Left sure is putting a lot into keeping this idiot around...
One in a long line of oxygen thieves.
van jones is a little bitch....
Is that why Van married a white woman?
Van Jones . . . KMWA!!!!
—Van Jones: Death to the ‘great white suburbs’—
Be careful what you wish for, Van:
It had better not happen, but it could. Any spark could light it. One day the underclass, rioting, may go into white neighborhoods to stomp and burn. They won’t expect resistance, because they have never met it. I don’t think Al and Jesse quite know how many deer guns, how many Weatherbys and .223s sit quietly in closets out here. If a mob comes toward a man’s home, where his wife and children are, the results will be astonishing. The police will immediately polarize, black versus white. So will everybody else. Government will be irrelevant. And the whole country just might blow up.
There’s nothing grammatically wrong with that sentence, but it is certainly one hell of a prepositional phrase dump. I would try to diagram that sentence, but I don’t think there’s enough paper in my printer for it.
Keep him and that quote (hopefully on video) around.
We can show pics of a “great white suberb” accompanied by his quote, then show a town from a topical socialist country (hopefully without smell-O-vision), and then contrast.
These clowns couldn’t dig a straight ditch, and they actually think they can give us directions on technology.
The leftist plan all along has been to make suburban living unaffordable so they can force us back into their squalid cities where we can be taxed, controlled and intimidated by their racial allies. Jones is saying nothing new here.
Does it seem like the Left has revealed much more of their racism since 2008? Sure does to me.
These people like him are pure evil.
“Theres nothing grammatically wrong with that sentence, but it is certainly one hell of a prepositional phrase dump. I would try to diagram that sentence, but I dont think theres enough paper in my printer for it.”
That sentence means precisely what he wants it to mean.
No more, no less.
Off with your head.
How would he feel, or what would he say, if others said “Get rid of the blacks in the inner cities”?
