Skip to comments.A Wake-up Call from Van Jones
Posted on 02/12/2020 8:59:08 AM PST by Kaslin
CNN analyst Van Jones appears to recognize a political head-on collision before it happens.
Hes now warning leftist viewers to wake up to the realities of what can occur with Trumps next run for the White House in 2020, according to his appearance on a panel in the aftermath of the presidents SOTU speech.
One of the most worrisome moments for Van Jones was the presidents pitch for improved education for African-Americans. You may not like it, Van Jones cautioned his fellow panelists, but he mentioned HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities), have been struggling for a long time, a bunch of them have gone under, he threw a lifeline to them in real life in his budget.
This lifeline struck fear in Van Jones because he recognized it was the start of politically consequential policies now being enacted by the Trump administration.
While his CNN colleagues snickered at Trumps showmanship, Van Jones focused on what was the most notable aspect of putting African-Americans front-and-center at the SOTU. President Trump is pushing back against the Democratic narrative of portraying him and his supporters as white supremacists.
The timing could not have been better. WAKE UP, folks, Van Jones tweeted his comments in a video, The Iowa caucus was a debacle, followed by a SOTU address laying out Trumps strategy to win.
In an act of pure showmanship, President Trump matched up real faces to his policies that addressed real inequities in American life. And the nation was watching.
He introduced a single mother, and her adolescent daughter, whose future was put further out of reach when Pennsylvania governor vetoed legislation to expand school choice. His administration extended opportunities for school choice and crucial scholarships of which the mother and daughter would be the direct beneficiaries.

Would you offer a black man $100 to walk around in a crowd wearing a MAGA hat for an hour?
He can see the 4D chess, at least
A good sign - I knew Bob Dole was finished when he started pleading “Wake up, America!” in October, 1996.
And rather than recognize something positive, applaud it, and say the Democrats have to do better, he sees it as a terrifying threat.
And that is the state of politics in America.
Are you saying that all Blacks need to be bribed?
But later from his hospital bed he would say to the TV news crews "Thank goodness for my Obamacare coverage after I got beaten up. Obama was always there when it counted."
Leftists wasted no time in launching attacks against Van Jones, never missing an opportunity to vilify his bipartisan efforts.
White leftists no doubt.
I guess hes finally seeing that white-wash he spoke of three years ago.
I'm in PA, and I'm gonna pull an 'Trump operation chaos' and I'm going to the court house and change my Voter Registration from pubbie to demonRAT.
Trump doesn't need my vote in the primary but, 'BERNIE NEEDS ME AND I NEED BERNIE'.
I want to be able to scream at the TV, "I'm a Bernie voter and I got screwed" and be truthful.
OPERATION BERNIE, A WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S, A NEW HEART FOR BERNIE...WHATEVER!!!
I need to be bribed—I want Bloomberg to write me a million dollar check—now—there is no shame in that! ;-)
White-lash ... dumb autocorrect.
Excellent post, imho—that is exactly what Republican voters should be doing right now.
The biggest threat to our liberties is not any one of the candidates—it is the Deep State and their fully owned subsidiaries, the Democratic National Committee and the mass media.
Anything that makes their lives miserable is good for average Americans.
I don’t think white lefties are brave enough to pick a fight with a black man. Pay a white woman $50 to walk around with him holding hands the whole time.
In my probably 30 seconds of seeing TV news about 10 seconds were Van Jones giving his opinion of a Trump speech (2017?) “He is just washing a t#rd.”
I will never forgive him for that. Don’t care if beside other radical CNN Marxist Leninists he sometimes appears tame. He’s not.
Being PC seems to come with some immunity from the disapproval of your fellow Lefties.
Detest the man’s politics, but have to respect his intellect.
Partisan Media Shills update.
All of the Democrat Candidates are on record they want radical socialism, free everything to illegals, open jails....
We The People!
Now let's pay guys to wear uniforms, carry badges and protect all citizens of all colors equally from violence.
Oh, wait. There used to be a category of people doing that. Now in places like Oregon they fold their arms, lean against a building at the far end of the block and watch the perpetrators diminish free assembly and free speech rights through Antifa violence.
That said, God bless the NYPD and others who face scum every day and don't stand down regardless of their Commie mayor.
I sent Bernie well over $2. I put my money where my mouth is.
