Ann Coulter: “Van Jones should speak to school children instead”

As we reported here yesterday, the increasingly embarrassing White House “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones was caught on tape calling Republicans “assholes.”

Following the predictable uproar, Van Jones (or, more accurately, his “office”) hurriedly sent a brief statement over to Glenn Thrush at Politico.com:

These comments, made before I joined the administration, were clearly inappropriate and I apologize for the offensive words I chose to use during that speech. They do not reflect the views of this administration, which has made every effort to work in a bipartisan fashion, and they do not reflect the experience I have had since I joined the administration.

However, that didn’t prevent FOX News’ Sean Hannity and his guest, bestselling author Ann Coulter, from having some fun at Jones’ expense last night.

Coulter told Hannity that the revolt of ordinary Americans against President Obama‘s socialist policies is “happening much faster than I expected.”

Coulter also quipped that Van Jones “should be the one to speak to school children on September 8″ instead of President Obama, “because there’s nothing kids love more than hearing one adult call another ‘a-hole’.”

Tune in to Sean Hannity’s show tonight to see if he tackles this breaking story, via HotAir.com:

‘Naked Emperor News’ strikes again by finding revealing clips of an interview conducted by “Uprising Radio” with Van Jones seventeen months ago.  Jones, the green jobs czar, explains how his allies want to conduct a revolution on the sly. Call it radical incrementalism, call it an offshoot of the Alinksy method, but it certainly seems that Jones is easily the most radical White House aide in many, many years:

So: should NewsReal hold what those of us north of the 49th Parallel call a “hockey pool”? To wit: how many days until Van Jones “resigns”? Put me down for ten.

    Health Reform:

    In my opinion – In case no health or humanitarian crisis (real or generated) emerges for the president to fast track his health care, here is likely the closing argument the president will give to get it passed, and just by means of his greatest commodity – his charm and rhetoric.
    And no one will be able to challenge it without looking the fool:

    “There comes a time when silence is betrayal… History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims… We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it politic? Vanity asks the question: is it popular?

    But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular- but one must take it simply because it is right.

    – Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.

    He won’t have to resign. First, he’s a democrat. Second, Obama and the media see nothing controversial about Van Jones wanting a communist revolution and using dishonesty to achieve that goal.

    I guess Van Jones is a real big man now and grew some more hair on his chest since he cussed. This shows credibility with Jones – calling names like a jackel.

    Jones said.. These comments, made before I joined the administration, were clearly inappropriate,,,

    I find this funny, as it appears that when in government he quickly says that what he had said was inapproprate, but does that change what he feels inside. It would appear that to keep the votes one will backtrack on anything whilst still believing it in their hearts..
    I cant of course say that he is not sorry, but hey, why would we trust a politician or the media… especially the left..
