Van Jones and His STORMtroopers Denounced America the Night After 9/11

August 31, 2009

President Obama‘s green jobs czar Van Jones co-founded the communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), Glenn Beck said on his TV show Friday.

STORM described itself and its activities as:

“We upheld the Marxist critique of capitalist exploitation. We agree with Lenin‘s analysis of the state and the party. And we found inspiration and guidance in the insurgent revolutionary strategies developed by third world revolutionaries like Mao Tse-Tung and Amilcar Cabral.”

The vehemently anti-American group held a vigil in Oakland, California, “mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world” on the night after Sept. 11, 2001. Jones does not appear to have distanced himself from his past communist activities and is now part of the Obama administration’s push to turn Sept. 11 into a National Day of Service focused on the promotion of the radical environmentalist agenda.

The vigil was reported by World Net Daily which excerpted parts of a history of the now-disbanded group. The 2004 document, called “Reclaiming Revolution: history, summation & lessons from the work of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM),” may be found on an archival site here.

Jones also founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which joined in the vigil according to an Ella Baker Center press release from 2001. The press release contained this passage that quoted Jones:

“Anti-Arab hostility is already reaching a fever pitch as pundits and common people alike rush to judgment that an Arab group is responsible for this tragedy,” said Van Jones, national executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. “We fear that an atmosphere is being created that will result in official and street violence against Arab men, women and children.”

“Reclaiming Revolution” also blamed the U.S. for 9/11. A passage on page 45 (27 of the PDF file) reads: 

That night, STORM and the other movement leaders expressed sadness and anger at the deaths of innocent working class people. We were angry, first and foremost, with the U.S. government, whose worldwide aggression had engendered such hate across the globe that working class people were not safe at home. We honored those who had lost their lives in the attack — and those who would surely lose their lives in subsequent U.S. attacks overseas.

Michelle Malkin discussed STORM and “Reclaiming Revolution” on the “Glenn Beck Program” on Aug. 25.

    Has the White House become a national “Half-Way” house?

    What We Do [ ATTACKED GLENN BECK ]

    Using the Internet, we will enable our members to speak in unison, with an amplified political voice. We will keep them informed about the most pressing issues for Black people in America and give them ways to act. We will lobby elected representatives using email, the telephone, and face-to-face meetings. We’ll bring attention to the needs and concerns of Black folks by holding coordinated events in different parts of the country, running TV and print advertisements, and demanding that the news media cover our issues. We will also work with other groups—online efforts and other organizations that are doing related work—to magnify our impact.

    When we come together and speak with one voice, we cannot be ignored.

Van now serves as Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

    In late December, a 2003 tape recording of Obama made while he was still in the Illinois Senate became public. It was a comment on Kennedy’s efforts to pass a prescription drug bill. Obama had described Kennedy as “getting old and getting tired” and said the backers of a strong drug measure should get after him.

      That is the very reason we should boycott those who responded to this organizations threat of a boycott. A bit of quid pro quo to force them to use thought before they respond to race baiters.

    And you thought “Communism” was over!

    GLENN BECK’S PROGRAM ON WEDNESDAY had a chalk board with what I call the “Tree of Communists” with Obama on the top. Beck detailed all of the groups on the board BUT LEFT OUT THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA, CPUSA. He almost said it but bypassed them when in reality, THEIR NAME SHOULD BE ABOVE OBAMA’S AND ABOVE THE CPUSA SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE “SOVIET KGB!”

    DURING THE 80′s, the KGB and our CPUSA were taking over Central America. The KGB’s “World Peace Council” with the CPUSA’s “UNITED STATES PEACE COUNCIL” duped many Americans, mostly naive university students, into aiding the Sandinistas with “Construction Brigades” but at the same time the CPUSA AND THE KGB used their fronts to raise funds to OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT OF EL SALVADOR USING THE MARXIST FMLN REBELS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME SCREAMING “NO CONTRA AID!”

    “NO CONTRA AID!” “EL SALVADOR IS SPANISH FOR VIETNAM!” “U.S. OUT OF VIETNAM!”

    All of these slogans were designed to AID ANY AND ALL ENEMIES OF THE UNITED STATES!

    THE SOVIET KGB AND CPUSA TEAMED UP IN THE 80′S TO BRAINWASH AMERICANS! THOSE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS ARE NOW PROFESSORS WHO BRAINWASH MORE STUDENTS WHO OF COURSE, SUPPORTED OBAMA OR ANY DEMOCRAT SINCE THE DEMS STACKED THE DECK IN ALMOST EVERY ELECTION WITH CLOSET COMMUNISTS OR SYPHATHIZERS, LEFTISTS, OR SOCIALISTS! “SOCIALIST” IS JUST THE P.C. TERM REALLY MEANING “COMMUNIST.” IT IS LIKE LITE BEER. THOSE STUDENTS ARE NOW IN CHARGE OF, OR IN, HIGH LEVEL GOVERNMENT POSITIONS!

    WHO BRAINWASHED AMERICA TO AID THE VIETCONG, THE SANDINISTAS, THE FMLN, THE ZAPATISTAS, IRAN, HEZBOLLAH AND HAMAS, AND ANY U.S. ENEMY? THE CPUSA WITH THE TOP, THE SOVIET KGB INCLUDING KGB PUTIN!!!

      and the united states CIA helped to overthrow democratic governments in south america all in the name of instlling capitalism. thousands of people died, were tortured or just simply disappeared all in the name of a completely free market experiment advised by some american corporations and milton friedman. why did we do this? because these countries were becoming completelyy self sufficient. we couldn’t have that. american corporations wanted a piece of the pie (just like iraq). the cia supervised the torture of rebels resisting this infiltration. and you know what? the experiment failed. the leaders we helped to put into place became dictators, were greedy, and were cruel to its citizens. their economies would not recover for decades.

      why don’t you people understand or even read what hte united states has done to other countries and why they hate us so? we had absolutely no business interfering with sovereign nations. these people were fine suffering no human rights violations. we can be real jerks and it’s time for us as americans to have the humility to accept it and change our ways. how long did it take for us to apologize to the slaves or teh chinese in california? we actually run around talking about how our country is the most free or whatever when we were last out of many advanced civilizations to even let our women vote.

      oh.. and if you hate socialism so much, i invite all of you to take your kids out of the very socialist public system and pay for them yourselves in private. if you hate socialism so much, then you must see how it’s not fair for a person like me and my husband who don’t want kids to have to pay for your brats to go to school. without socialism, hardly any of you could afford to even send your kids to school. so quit your g*d da** whining. pick a side and stick to it. you can’t complain on one hand about socialism on one hand but then enjoy the benefits of socialism on the other.

    PART II: HILLARY AIDED THE MARXIST FMLN REBELS during the 80′s war! (Google Hillary Clinton Marxist FMLN) Two months ago, HILLARY was the highest ranking U.S. official at the INAUGURATION OF THE MARXIST FMLN PRESIDENT. Hugo Chavez bought and paid for that one too!

    AT THE SAME TIME, Hillary was denouncing Zelaya’s removal in Honduras? What if it would have been a “coup” by Leftists and removed the President by force?

    Central American Marxists are learning to lay down their arms and take it to the ballot box. THEY USE DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS TO GAIN POWER AND IMMEDIATELY DISMANTLE ALL THE VERY DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS! THEY THEN USE INTIMADATION AND BRIBES TO STAY IN POWER AS THEY TAKE OVER CONGRESS AND REWRITE THEIR CONSTITUTIONS TO ALLOW A “PRESIDENT FOR LIFE!”

    Isn’t there a group that is already wanting to change term limits to allow Obama to run for “President for Life?”

    So Jones loves and praises Karl Marx / Communism? Joke is on YOU,Van Jones, and other Leftist Blacks. Most of the most famous Communists – starting with Marx, to Guevara and Castro – actually,totally hated Blacks, calling them every known epithet. Tell Diane Watson (D-Ca) the bad news.

    Is van jones on the government payroll? He should be fired immediately. His hatred to America is not to be tolerated by people in authority. Why was he chosen in the first place?

      One reason is that “liberal” media outlets were “duped” along with a multitude of others with the novelty of it all.

      Regardless of color, we judge people by the company they keep and this fact remained hidden to the majority of the voters quite effectively, but the “veil” has been removed…now what?

    Sept 11th as a national day of service? In my mind, that’s blasphemous. That would like saying, “Martin Luther King’s Birthday, The National KKK service day.” or Memorial Day, “The national day of barbque.” or Veterans Day, “The national day of the Nazi Pride.”

    I’m apalled that our president is appointing so many people to positions where there is no congressional oversight. That’s just wrong, and it threatens to unbalance the system.

    Congress needs to order the president to remove them from office and nominate people to fill equivalent positions that congress can have oversight of.

      Most of you are so off track I can’t believe it. Go on believing what you want but your too ignorant to understand. What’s wrong with communism and socialism you ask? Jesus! “Equaljustice”….sure, right. It’s only when someone is close to the truth or hits the nail on the head when people get as worked up over it as you , otherwise you would just blow it off. Look up what Van Jone’s S.T.O.R.M. was all about. I’m sure you’re all so interested in the truth that you do that right after reading this…not.
      Just because Obams is “Black” does not mean that he’s right if one happens to be black. That’s an idiot’s way of thinking. If you’re black and you think that Obama is right just because he’s black, then you are a racist, a liberal’s favorite word these days.
      Glenn Beck is one of the many trying to show what’s really happening. We’re losing our America folks, OUR AMERICA! How long does it take for you to see this. Do you need to lose all of your rights before you see what’s happening? It’s time to stop with the naivete and the lies yourself. Look what Adam states in his blog. Can you answer that? Can you state that it’s not true. Of course you can’t. This is the worst our country has ever been. How long will you keep stating “it’s Bush’s fault”, “It’s Cheney’s fault”? Doesn’t the current Obama administration have to take credit for anything that’s going on? If you keep telling yourself that that’s the case you’ll soon believe yourself.
      Wake up Liberals! This is not what you really want! Wake up. Wake up. Wake up.
