Problem Glenn? :trollol:
Fuck Van Jones.
Apparently calling a spade a spade is now inflammatory.
Nothing shows a lack of IQ like using this emote.
How nice of Van Jones to throw the Gabby Giffords shooting in there, as if to say that Loughner was motivated by commentators like Beck. And did he really "double down on the crazy"? Come on homie...how often do you really think your name is mentioned on Fox News these days anyway? The last instance I found was in on Beck's show in March, talking about a two-hour program for high schoolers on police brutality made by Van Jones. At least he admitted that he went whining to Beck's producers, threatening to take legal action. Poor American-hating scumbag. Err, sorry...FORMER American-hating scumbag. My bad. :icon_cool.
Many years, in this instance, means, "waaaaaaaaay, way back in 2002." I'm guessing on that...STORM ran from 1994-2004, but oddly enough, you really can't find much on Van Jones' involvement in the Marxist group anymore. However, in a more recent interview, he talked about being surrounded by Marxists and Communists while sitting in a prison cell (probably where that, "spent time in jail" claim comes from, I dunno...possibly ) after the Rodney King riots...and saying that, for the next 10 years, he spent much of his time being a Communist.
He then signed that 9-11 Truther petition in 2004...but of course, he says he was tricked into signing it when the group asked if he supports the 9/11 victims and families...and after he said yes, they themselves signed his name on there. Don't you hate when that happens? The same thing happened to me when I was approached by a bunch of anti-abortion activists...they said, "Do you like kids?" And after I agreed, I found my name on their anti-abortion petition. Insanity. :icon_cool
The truth is an absolute defense to slander.
Here's the original thread from when he resigned. Funny stuff in that thread.
And then everyone got outraged when the media was asked to help go through 20,000 public documents about Palin. Mmmm....mmm...mmmm....
So everyone thought it was cool when Glenn Beck did it? Damn, wish I had known. I fancy myself a bit of a truth-seeker...:icon_cool
Is Van Jones really this desperate for attention?
You didn't just compare Beck telling his audience to do their own research on Van Jones' past to the NY Times and Washington Post telling their readers to help comb through the 20K+ Palin e-mails and report any "newsworthy" quotes and comments, did you? Oh no...you did...you even had to dig up an old thread and some of my older quotes...oh boy.
Here's where there's a pretty big difference, k?
Sarah Palin is a right wing (far right on some issues) former Governor of Alaska who has a knack for saying incredibly hokey things, made mistakes in office (not nearly as bad as the mistakes of other governors/politicians), and has been targeted by the left wing who is desperately trying to make her the spokeswoman for all conservatives and trying to tear her down, in turn, taking all conservatives with her.
Van Jones is a far left wing socialist who was involved in a pro-Marxist group through the late 90's, supported cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, and talked a bunch of jibba-jabba about how whites are poisoning black communities. Jones was serving as a White House advisor to President Obama on "green jobs" and "ecocapitalism".
So, let's recap...
Former Governor, loony because she holds some far right views, loony cuz she thinks she stands a chance to get the Republican nod in 2012, has a daughter who got knocked up, very religious, not a good choice for President.
Supported the Marxists less than 10 years ago, self-proclaimed Communist and surrounded himself with communists/marxists and the like, supported a cop killer, alleged truther, should be nowhere near the White House, but was for quite some time.
Van Jones was an incredibly easy target. Palin, on the other hand, gets criticized for using crosshairs which many think caused the Tucson shooting and her thoughts on what Paul Revere's intentions truly were when he was riding his pony (or was it DeLorean? :icon_cool).
Sorry I posted the apparent hypocrisy of your positions on the media enlisting the help of "citizen journalists" doing their work for them. I thought there was a more recent thread on Van Jones and that one came up on my search and I read the first few posts on the first page.
Uggh. Not this argument again. She's making HERSELF the spokeswoman for all conservatives, and conservative groups are paying her handsomely for it.
And she came within a few percentage points of being the #2 person in the executive branch, stop trying to marginalize her, that's the libs job...:icon_cool
I suppose the fact that she's married to a seccessionist with the Alaska Independence party flies right by you like a deer in headlights. Only when Liberal/Lefties associate with fringe groups must it be repeatedly pointed out ad nauseam, right?
The secessionist movement in Alaska was a very popular one when the corruption was rampantly fucking everyone over. Palin was the one who cleaned all that up, hence her instantaneous celebrity among the Right.
And believe it or not I learned this from a liberal on Bill Maher's show.
Well, of course, I also left out the crucial part about how the NY Times and Washington Post are supposed to be respectable news agencies and well, Glenn Beck is merely just a political commentator who even he has admitted, is not the place to go for news. But you had to do alot of leg work on that one, so I'll give you a high five for that one.
Yes...but alas...she didn't become the #2 person in the executive branch. Coulda, shoulda, woulda. But the other big gimmick did, and he's #1...and he's THE spokesperson for everything liberal and left. That must feel just terrific.
Oh sure. Yeah, cuz being a member of a party that wants to see Alaska as an independent country based on limited government is just way more dangerous than Marxism or even Socialism, both responsible for countless deaths and tyranny.
I fuckin WISH liberals were secessionists, jeez...you can take the whole west coast, please. Start your own country and leave us small government capitalists the fuck alone.
Uggh. Not this argument again. He's on the Fox News Channel. Can't claim libs go to Jon Stewart for news and then say cons don't do the same with Beck.
And she's flirting with running again, or at least she's letting people believe she is.
He's really not. The hardcore left don't love Obama nearly as much as the hardcore right loves Palin. Wars, torture, public option, bailing out Wall Street, etc., etc...
Since when is Fox News' political commentary programs respectable sources for news? NY Times/Washington Post wanted readers to dig up the dirt from the Palin e-mails so they can report it in their respected newspapers as news stories. Beck told his viewers on his political commentary program to do the research themselves on Jones' shady history. I see a difference.
Exactly, but I don't think she stands a chance if she is serious. Again...she'd make a good talk show host for neocon women one day...nothing more really.
Oh, but they sure did love him at one point! He was going to "change" things and be the anti-Bush. Sure fooled the far left. And liberals. And independents. And some libertarians. And some conservatives.
It's all good though. President Bachmann will set us all straight in a couple years. :icon_cool
And Secessionists have been all roses and puppies in the history of ever.
Of course you do. Just like the KKK wishes Detroit would secede and leave Middle America alone. But is that a healthy attitude for someone with Federal government Executive Branch aspirations to have?
Well at least he didn't wait for years before deciding to take action....
Again: Truth is an absolute defense to slander. Nothing Glenn Beck or anyone else has ever said about Van Jones is untrue. The guy is an admitted radical communist agitator.
In all fairness, I think most everyone outside of Detroit wishes Detroit would secede.
Well you just kissed your Presidential aspirations goodbye!
Not so much secede as burn to the fucking ground.
Well at least he offered up an unbiased venue.
