The new Van Jones loves Glenn Beck

In case you had not noticed, Van Jones is trying to whitewash his old image. In the last week or so a new kinder, gentler Van Jones is emerging. He is making appearances with Kristen Gillibrand, he got a NAACP award and even offers an excuse for his 9/11 Truther stuff.

Today the new Van Jones, took his remake to dazzling new heights and said he loves Glenn Beck! Here is what Jones said when he received his NAACP award.

So what did Glenn Beck have to say about all this? Check out this Tweet:

I am sure we will be hearing more about this from Beck on Monday. I will update this post with any response from Beck’s radio or TV show.

The question I have is, why the remake? Why is Van Jones remaking himself now? He left the White House and could easily pursue his agitation outside of the public light. Does this remake mean he is going to be taking on a very visible role in the future and thus he must clean up his act?  Time will tell.

Van Jones strikes me as a very charismatic, very funny public speaker. Even during his rants against Bush, etc... I almost caught myself chuckling a few times.

This is the kind of thing that worries me. These people always show back up (Daschle,Al Gore). I worry that even when the American people rid themselves of idiots like Pelosi,Rangel,etc. These idiots are never polite enough to slink back into private life. Somehow they lurk about still plugged into the machine of public influence.

I heard he's the new Idol judge- they told him to go do the talk-show circuit first and act warm-n-fuzzy, lol

Seriously, he might be positioning himself for a post-Obama era where his old agenda will be toxic, and futile to pursue... with a view outside the administration now, perhaps he can see clearly the writing on the wall, and aims to make the most of his celebrity in the smoldering ruins of the Obama era-

That would be my guess... anybody can come back and rebrand themselves in this country, after all...

Van Jonsin' should love Glenn Beck. Beck gives Van Jones plenty of face time on TV to spout off his racist viewpoint. Most folks would give anything to get that much TV time. Funny thing is I recall Van Jonsey going into a ran about no more broken treaties, yet mr. obamination has broken more treaties than all other past Presidents combined. The defense pact we signed with Poland comes to mind right away. We tore that up while "moving" Van Jones chanted NO MORE BROKEN TREATIES...GIVE THEM THE WEALTH!!!
You may find this interesting: Yesterday at a tea party, I debated a Black woman who was upset at us 9/12ers because "we hate Obama and have taken her right to healthcare away and now she can't affored her Iphone, her Hummer and her healthcare and that healthcare is a right." I answered back that I drive a $700 honda and I have the right to a Humvee so she better hand over the keys. Her reply was: "thats's different." She pays for her Hummer. So I told her to sell her Hummer and pay for her healthcare because it's not the job of the people at that rally to pay for her health care. She then called me a racist. I replied I don't care what color you are, if you can afford a Hummer, you can afford health care and I don't have secret plans to go around paying for white Hummer owners' health care just to cut her out. She made the crowd quite angry when she complained about having to pay for a Humvee and healthcare and then called us racists.

Clifton, you called it the first time and the second time and now the third time........... Van Jones just simply follows the cash. You are a lot more subtle than I am.

Van Jones is entertaining, it is what helped him with his agitation. Too bad he cannot put his talents to more productive uses. Perhaps if he did, "Pookie" would have gotten a job by now.

This is why we must remain vigilant after 2012. We need people who will get the nation back to its Constitutional roots so that it becomes harder for progressive plans to thrive.

Clifton B said...


You could very well be correct. My worry is that he is remaking himself so that he can pursue the same agenda from a different angle.

Tell us what you really think Chuck, LOL. Have you ever seen how some Christians say "Bless you" to people they don't like in such a way that it comes off more like a big FU? That is how Van Jones I Love You sounds.

Sadly too many Americans refuse to pony up for their responsibility. You see it in the elderly too. They demand free healthcare, drugs, housing, etc. They are entitled to none of it. They are actually taking from their children and grandchildren because they refuse to be responsible for themselves.

This attitude that someone else must pay for our necessities so that we can buy our wants is what got us into trouble in the first place.

In order to save the nation, we are going to have to defeat the entitlement mentality. We simply can no longer afford it.

The entire game for these people are to distribute other people's cash and to line their own pockets in the process.
