Comment of the Day Highlights Communist Racism

August 31, 2009

Matthew Vadum’s recent blog yesterday dealt with Van Jones, President Obama’s green jobs czar. Vadum touches on Glenn Beck’s exposure of Jones’s communist past.

In one of the day’s most interesting responses, Phineas commented on Matthew Vadum’s post today about Jones:

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.

Jones was the co-founder of the communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), whose heroes and role models included lovely figures such as Marx, Lenin and Mao. Aside from his dreams about communism, Jones is also very much concerned about racism in America. He is especially worried about contemporary “anti-Arab hostility” in America.

Seeing that Jones is black, and that communist theoreticians and despots loom large in his romantic imagination, it would be interesting to gauge what moral indignation and heartfelt concerns he holds regarding the following:

“Che” Guevara once said,

“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent… We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean: nothing!”

Maybe that is why it should serve as no surprise that Castro’s Cuba holds the distinction today of being one of the most racist regimes in the world. It is notorious for its atrocious oppression of black people. Indeed, systematic racism against blacks is one of the cornerstones of the regime. Humberto Fontova has chronicled the ugly and tragic record of this persecution of blacks under Castro.

For a charming look at Marx’s view of black people, read Walter Williams’ article here.

And since Jones is interested in matters concerning the Arab and Muslim community, it would be interesting to know his thoughts about — and political activism connected to — the violent capture and enslavement of black Africans by Arabs that continues till this day.

One might also wonder about his outrage regarding the blatant racism against blacks that is permeated throughout the Qur’an and ahadith.

Perhaps he’ll soon enlighten us all about these matters and how they reflect his sincere concern about racism in general and about his own people in particular.

    You assume that the race baiters have character and do not use race baiting as a means to an end. Jones is not interested in hearing logical arguments to defeat his rhetoric. He knows everything you pointed out. He uses it to motivate those who don’t know to do his bidding. Dictators do not fight thier own battles. They persuade others to do that for them using lies and deliberate misrepresentations of fact.

    No one ever accused Jones or any of the other “pseudo-intellectuals” like him of being anything other than street thugs whose only real world business experience was in marketing (street corner crack cocaine).

    Don’t let Van Jones make America vanish by Commie jones!
    Communism in any type of its embodiment is as inhuman as Fascism/Nazism.
    To profess Communism ideology in our days when History had clearly proved its inhuman essence, its imminent failure, its illusive and ALWAYS temporary advantages for a certain type of people is a sign of dementia that emanates a narcissistic belief that “I, a firm clever Communist, am a lot smarter than all previous Commies who failed implementing a real Communism and therefore I will succeed in doing that unlike all predecessors.”

    In a clinical terms, it’s a sort of paranoia.

    Unfortunately, our Constitution allows those mentally retarded creatures to rule the country instead of being prosecuted and imprisoned as State traitors.

    Communist Party and Nazi Party must be banned by Constitution and no Communist, no Nazi must be allowed to be in the White House and on the Capitol Hill.

    Communist Van Jones and his accomplices must be removed fron the Office as State traitors since they are intending to break the Constitution.

    When I look around I can see this global elete system doesn’t work for everybody, I can see there is an unbalanced power structure in place that allows people that has so much money that they can oppress or dominate all other people. They have the power to create or take away jobs from a community. They can run small businesses
    out of business, they can create poverty or take away poverty. I believe we need to put more power back in the hands of the people. I do believe in change and human rights.
    I’m not sure if Van Jones strategy will create jobs and help small businesses or actually do the opposite. The only people that will oppose change are people that benefit from this corrupt system.

      Except those who don’t think “change” will work or be in the spirit of the American Idea of freedom.

      Amazing is that individuals who are in love with the notion “change” don’t give a damm to think what change they are talking about.
      Like on a spiritistic seance – nothing but hypnotism, no brain involved.
      Change that Obama with his accomplices like Van Jones want is the Death to America, you progressive intellectuals!

    Not only they, The Castro Brothers and Che Guevara, despised black people, they also were used as cannon fodder in Africa, where thousands of black cubans were sent to kill black africans.
    Most of then came back in boxes full of of bones, mixed in make it impossible for their relatives to recognize their remains.

    As for Diane Watson, Vernon James and their fellow UNSEFULL IDIOTS, all I wish for them is to live in a cuban ghetto for a couple of years, together with the poor cubans, BLACKS, WHITE OR WHATEVER THEIR SKIN COLOR.

    It is very rare to see blacks in any picture showing the top Cuban military and political figures in spite that blacks along with mixed white-black constitute 65% of the Cuban population. This is the definite proof that Cuban leaders are racist. A fact that Castro lovers refuse to acknowledge.
