    It's called NIMBYism. If blacks lived in the suburbs and whites lived in the inner cities, blaacks would do the same thing to the whites. To suggest that "whiteness" plays a part in environmental injustice is stupid. It's pure socio-economics. It the poor people were Russians, the result would be the same - poor people get to live in the sh!t.

    It shouldn't surprise anyone that obama would surround himself with psychos like this guy and some of the others when you look at who he surrounded himself with on his way up. We were told the reverend and the terrorist didn't matter - they mattered because they showed obama's character which hasn't changed.

    Weasels never disappear, he's in there burrowing around. He was starting to be one of the unpopular faces in the WH so he's getting less face time for now.

    He is keeping a low profile, and after the bad PR thanks to the former Governor about him, his old seat, an adviser, and Obama's Senate seat it's not surprising.

    Yeah, but Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were just "neighbors" that O-man "only saw on occasion while strolling on the street in the neighborhood"; they "never were close in their relationship". :rolleyes:.

    Do you actually think Obama was ever INFLUENCED by Ayers, Dohrn, Alinsky, or the others???? C'mon!! Barry is much "smarter" than that. Went to Hahvahd, you know. Had the eminent Prof. Henry Louis Gates --- "whatchumean you wanna see my ID!!! You racist pig cop!!!! -- as a mentor. :rolleyes:

    He's voluntarily disappeared likely. Any schemer will tell you it's best to avoid the spotlight and to fly under the radar. Just ask Cheney.

    Why argue about Beck instead of addressing THE ACTUAL WORDS of Van Jones? I don't get it. You can sit there with your head in the sand, but it doesn't change what this radical communist has said.

    How lightly and gentle RACISM is treated when it comes from a person of color and is directed at "The White Bastards"

    This is how the right wing does it. Dig up old dirt, and whether they disavowed their past mistakes (which Van Jones has) or not, play up the negative. Don't mention the fact that Van Jones won a lawsuit after showing his arrest was illegal; don't mention the fact that Van Jones has disavowed his earlier left wing views and believes that change can come through the system; don't mention the fact that an organization founded by Van Jones is now leading the drive to boycott the Glen Beck show; don't mention the fact that Van Jones' radical organizations include corporate sponsors like Google and Proctor and Gamble; don't mention the fact that Van Jones is a relatively minor player in the administraiton; don't mention the fact that Van Jones has done nothing in his current position that could reasonably be perceived as radical. Just play old videos, pull up statements out of context, and launch personal attacks. If possible, find a racially insensitive statement, even if he made it years ago, and use that to further ignite the racists in the Republican Party. I don't agree with Van Jones that whites targeted blacks, but I do believe that the rich target the poor (who have fewer resources to fight back, though ACORN's a big help) and the poor are often black. From a black perspective, it's no surprise that some feel they are victimized by the old money that still runs much of our nation.

    Digging Up Old Dirt, Past Mistakes:
    GW Bush and his DUI 40 years ago, GW Bush goes AWOL while on a drunk.
    We had that shoved down our throats daily from the left wing media, the Left Wing Liberal Dan Rather got so excited over it he destroyed his whole life blubbering about it.

    A MAN IS KNOWN BY THE COMPANY HE KEEPS PRINCE BARACK HAS HAD SOME BEAUTYS

    GOD DAMN AMERICA (the prince was sleeping in his pew when the reverend said this, he didn't hear it).........:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    "Old money".... does that include Joe Kennedy's ill-gotten gains from boot-legging??? How many lives did he destroy while building up his pirate's treasure of swag, working along side gangsters, like Al Capone??? Joseph Kennedy's descendants are all living off of secret trust funds, tax-sheltered by the same fancy Wall Street lawyers and accountants everybody on the Left wants to hang from the lamp posts .... do you include people like the Kennedys when you whine about "old money", Patters??

    Wow, the hypocrisy is thick here. Van Jones is a self-avowed communist, anarchist, black nationalist - and he has not made any public statement that he has "changed his ways". If you can find a quote directly from Jones stating that he is no longer any of these, please link it here.

    As Jones has publicly stated:

    The only reason you are defending him is because he is a liberal. If you don't mind a communist breaking bread with the President in the White House, at least have the decency to admit it.

    Jones is a bitter anti american racist, if he was white and if he was a right wing conservative working for The Hated Bush he would be "crucified" and then sent out to exile with Don Imus.

    The old left wing double standard again, it's disgusting.

    Re: Green Jobs Czar Van Jones Says White Polluters Steered Poison Into Minority Commu

    Van Jones has apparently been through many phases, and has in recent years been a green capitalist. In 2007, he wrote this, "We will have to continue to fight corporate polluters. And we would also be wise to consider and explore partnerships with eco-capitalists, who are willing to grow their businesses in a cleaner and greener way. We will continue saying no to the economic oppression of the dying economy. But we must also learn how to say “yes” to economic opportunity of the emerging economy. As a part of a new economic strategy, we should help interested communities and workers to create their own green collectives and co-ops (as did the Green Workers’ Cooperative in the South Bronx)." The New Environmentalists By Van Jones

    In 2008, he wrote this:
    [W]e are entering an era during which our very survival will demand invention and innovation on a scale never before seen in the history of human civilization. Only the business community has the requisite skills, experience, and capital to meet that need. On that score, neither government nor the nonprofit and voluntary sectors can compete, not even remotely.
    So in the end, our success and survival as a species are largely and directly tied to the new eco-entrepreneurs — and the success and survival of their enterprises.

    -- Van Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also there's this article on HuffingtonPost, that appears to be reasonably well sourced:

    Van Jones has yet to apologize for saying White polluters (see below).

    Spin it any way you want Patters, this is what the man said.....

    The white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities.

    YouTube - Green Jobs Czar Van Jones Says White Polluters Steered Poison Into Minority Communities

    If a white pol ever said that blacks moving into Randolph have lowered
    property value and increased crime, would you blame the left?

    You would be leading the pack to have him removed from his position.
    No apoligy would be acceptable.

    Why do you blame the right when a man of color makes a dumb statement?
