Anti-Semitism: Obama Administration Style

This is from Obama's "Green Czar" (and 9/11 Truther) Van Jones:

No American would put up with an Israeli-style occupation of their hometown for 53 days let alone 54 years. US tax dollars are funding violence against people of color inside the US borders and outside the US borders.

I guess when Obama appoints a "Czar" its because they too would condone pogroms.

(H/T The Crabitat)

UPDATE:

Damn. We won't have Van Jones to kick around anymore. Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy

President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.

Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

The resignation comes as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate....

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in his resignation statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

Jones said he has been "inundated with calls from across the political spectrum urging me to stay and fight."

"Across the political spectrum" here probably means Demcorats, Marxists and Hamas.

Good riddance.

I can't believe he resigned. No body is perfect but you have to have a real tough skin to be in politics.

I think they were stupid for letting this guy go.

Really, you think it would have helped the Obama administration to have a self avowed Marxist, 9/11 Truther, supporter of cop killers, denier of Israel's right to exist, and foul muthed temper tantrum waiting to happen, be the point person on anything?

It's true that nobody is perfect, but there are lots of Demcorats that aren't any of the things listed above. It should be that hard for team Obama to find them.

Yes, but could you find one that isn't any of the things listed, AND pays his taxes? The Democratic party is in sorry shape indeed these days. Moynihan must be spinning in his grave...

Really, I don't understand how anybody could be sorry to see this Jones-character go. The only problem is that we have to put up with his erstwhile boss and fellow traveler for another 3-and-a-half years.

I enjoyed your crack about the "political spectrum". But I'm afraid the person who identified the politcal spectrum as Bolsheviks, mensheviks, and Trotskyites has you beat.

Criticism of Israel = anti-Semitism?

File under the new political correctness.

INW,

Calumny = criticism?

File under shameless postmodern bullshit.

The Iconic Midwesterner said...

ANd INW, do the math.

The statement of Van Jones about Israel's "occupation" was made in 2002. Let's see...2002 minus 54 years = well, what ARE the chances??? 1948! HE's calling the existence of Israel itself illegitimate. That is no "criticism", that is anti-Semitism pure and simple.

And Anon: Yeah I've seen the "Bolsheviks, mensheviks, and Trotskyites" line. Yeah, its a good one. I did beat it in terms of WHEN it was posted, but they have me on content.

Re: "Bolsheviks, mensheviks, and Trotskyites."

Hey what a second, I thought Obama and his supporters were Islamofascists? Or Chavistas? Or Sandinistas? Or Nazis? Now you tell me they're Trotskyites? How about Maoists? Or Stalinists? I am so confused, If only we had a 270 lbs. professor of political philosophy to sort things out.

P.S. Keep calling Obama a socialist because it is making socialism more popular in the U.S.. Check out this Rasmussen poll from April 9, 2009 which is headlined: "Just 53% say Capitalism Better than Socialism."

Hmm..searching my site...

Islamofascist? Nope, never used the term once (to decribe anyone.)

Chavistas? Nope, another zero hits.

Sandinistas? Zip. Zilch. Nada.

Nazis? Well, I did call the media Nazis for its attempt to destroy a private citizen who deigned to ask the chosen one a question.

Now, a socialist (and therefore NOT a supporter of individual human rights - as socialism does not), YES I have called Obama that.

Oh, and in the same post I note this from US News:

A while back I chatted with a University of Chicago professor who was a frequent lunch companion of Obama's. This professor said that Obama was as close to a full-out Marxist as anyone who has ever run for president of the United States.
Stupid Professor who had lunch coversations with the man! What could HE know that you don't????

(Oh, and I'm a fat man. Means you don't have to bother to pay attention to anything I say. Your logic is impecable as always.)

As for the publics take on Capitalism, well what do you expect when you put half-educated fools in charge of education.

Besides, do you think they know Capitalism isn't a political philosophy/ideology, its an economic system? Socialism is a poltiical ideology, not an economic system.

Ah well...as always, ignorace is bliss.
