While many Americans were already asleep and way past the prime time network and cable news, the word got out yesterday that Green Jobs Czar Van Jones took one for the “cause” and resigned.
While grooming to be the official Kool-Aid distributor of the 2009 Acorn Games, Van Jones forgot that it’s all on YouTube … his calling President George W. Bush and Republicans an expletive, his 9/11 U.S. blame game, his whites-poisoning-minorities diatribe, his smirking and laughing at his own hate talk, and more … all caught on tape.
And then there was Glenn Beck and the blogs, Tweets, and Facebook friends who had enough. In one week of exposure to a communist in the White House … Americans had enough … and so did Van Jones.
Van Jones resignation letter:
“I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today.
On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me. They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.
I have been inundated with calls – from across the political spectrum – urging me to “stay and fight.”
But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.
It has been a great honor to serve my country and my President in this capacity. I thank everyone who has offered support and encouragement. I am proud to have been able to make a contribution to the clean energy future. I will continue to do so, in the months and years ahead.”
Vicious smear campaign?
Perhaps it’s time for a reality check on the Van Jones issue … Van Jones retired because most Americans, and mostly the vocal ones, were fed up with a man who hates at least half of the country. No campaign needed … just simply truth exposed.
