Van Jones, Barack Obama's Green Jobs Czar, produced a record album entitled "WarTimes: Reports from the Opposition" a few years ago that was narrated by convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal and featured a clip of an interview Jones did where he slammed the United States and Israel and proclaimed his stand with a "global struggle" against the United States.
Jones used his Ella Baker Center for Human Rights to found Freedom Fighter Music, the label WarTimes appeared on. WarTimes is also the name of an anti-war-on-al-Qaeda propaganda newspaper Jones helped organize.
The album was unearthed by the website Verum Serum, which posted a YouTube video with highlights of the album.
About three minutes forty-five seconds in to the highlight video, there is a brief interview with Van Jones at an anti-Israel demonstration where Jones criticizes Israel and calls for Palestinian 'right of return' then unloads on the United States:
"We see violence against poor people and poor people of color within the U.S. border, at the U.S. border, and beyond the U.S. border and you see U.S. tax dollars funding all of it. And so we have this now global struggle against the U.S. led security apparatus and military agenda that impacts people here and impacts people around the world and I think that we need to see our problems as linked."
Mumia closes out the album by describing it as a "small tease of the truth about U.S. imperialism's war on the world."
The time frame of the album is hard to gauge, but Verum Serum writes that Freedom Fighter Music existed from around 2002-2003 to 2005-2006 and produced maybe two or three albums. The album appears to be from late 2002 or early 2003.
Jones mentioned the label in an interview with USA Today's USA Weekend magazine published February 9, 2003 that Verum Serum found:
[I understand you have] developed a record label, Freedom Fighter Music.
Jones: Yes, we've had one for a little more than a year. Our second CD is coming out this year.
Verum Serum gave a link to an MP3 file of the entire album at Indymedia.
Fire the Czars! and, yes, IMPEACH OBAMA the COMMUNIST!
...and the hit keep on coming.
Van Jones can be a dem poster child - we’ll never be short of donations again...
Is it that obvious? /sarc.
This is probably a stoopid question, but where does all the money come from to fund the activities of this bunch of America hating obots?
I just want to thank Glenn Beck for getting the ball rolling. Secondly I would like to thank Amanda Carpenter for her reporting. Thirdly I would like to thank Kristinn. And most of all I would like to thank the good people of the US.
Now lets take down a few more czars and then the Queen herself. Once she’s down, so will Obama.
Sad but true.
Everyone on the LIBERAL side of the Democrats (MOST) is part of the “Global Struggle Against the U.S.”....
Impeach them and charge them with treason.
Lots of folks claim that Van was poorly vetted by the Obama camp. I think they got the guy they wanted......
Jones must be one of those, “no hit wonders”.
Foundations and tax dollars. The left has gamed the system against us.
Vans cut from the same cloth as Michelle.
The Whole adminstration is anti-american, this one just is vocal about it.
‘Global STRUGGLE’ AGAINST the US, HUH????????????/
Gawd......I’m SICK of these people!
Exactly! If they were not Anti-American, they would be working for ZERO.
