Normally I would never link to a Huffington Post article, but this one by Arrianna Huffington requires some attention. In her latest column, Arianna praises Van Jones. She starts off by “thanking” Glenn Beck for getting Van Jones canned.
Your vile and vicious smear campaign has helped reverse one of the worst examples of miscasting since John Wayne took on the role of Genghis Khan in .
Huffington, then goes on to praise Van Jones :
Don't get me wrong: Van Jones was the best person for the job he just gave up. But the job was not the best use of Van Jones.
Best person for the job? With unemployment at 9.7% and rising, did Van Jones create a single “green job” or a job of any color during the time he was with the White House? Since the answer is no, I would say good riddance. Our national debt is immorally high; we cannot afford to pay posers to push their radical agendas. This seems to be lost on Arianna. Then again she has her millions, so why should she care about us little people being taxed to death to pay for all these useless Czars.
Arianna does do us a favor and reminds us something that we may have all forgotten after hearing about Jones’ resignation:
Now, thanks to Glenn Beck, we've got that voice back. No longer tied to his desk with a sock in his mouth, Van is now freed to do what he does best: inspire and energize groups around the country. Student groups and labor groups and small business groups and middle class Americans everywhere who are losing jobs and losing homes and losing hope. He's free to push with all his might and insight for the vision tens of millions of Americans tirelessly worked for during the presidential campaign -- the vision they voted for in November -- but which is now in danger of being drowned in the fetid political swamps of Washington.
That is right, Van Jones is now free to rabble-rouse, stir the racial pot and push his conspiracy theories all over the place. If I had to guess what his first order of business would be, I would say it is to try to bring down Glenn Beck. After that, Jones will no doubt return to his radical ways and when your read about the future trouble he causes, please do not forget Arianna’s praise.
