    What's everyone think about this guy? Self avowed Communist, who is a special advisor to the President? He has some outrageous quotes out there, and is not who I would want advising the President about anything.

    When asked if he were Marxist, he replied, "How's that capitalism working for ya?"

    Great answer, Van Jones.

    Van Jones is a self-professed avowed Communist. That isn't something that Beck made up. It's not something that he jumped to some conclusion about. Van Jones IS a Communist. Do you think it's appropriate for an avowed Communist to be a special advisor to any POTUS?

    If you choose to believe this so be it... have a load of fun.. obviously you choose to listen to the half truths without investigation.. you provide no links, nor do you corraborate you statement.. yea that has a lot of credibility:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Eco Capitalists usually do not profess communist ideology... but if Beck says it, that trumps about everything.

    If he was advising the big guy on Football, sure that would be inappropriate. Obviously if Obama needs some insight into the intricacies of the 2 deep zone he should call BB, if for some reason he needed a full timer to provide such insight then Tedy and Rodney have some free time.

    You've made three posts to this thread and still haven't commented of the advice this guy's given. Don't you think the quality of the advice is at least somewhat relevant?

    Communist->BAD!

    Is not a real informative debate position.

    Is a quote from Van Jones good enough for you guys?

    "“I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th..By August, I was a communist.”

    There you go. Right from the horse's mouth. Van Jones IS a communist, and he is a special advisor to the President. I don't care what he is advising him on, a self avowex Communist should have no place in our government.

    Because you guys are always using it when you mean Totalitarian.

    Communism doesn't take your guns away.

    Communism doesn't take your church away.

    Communism doesn't take your right to just leave the country away.

    Communism doesn't take away your right to not have the secret police bash your door in at 2 am.

    Totalitarianism does all that stuff.

    Communism is about how you get your stuff. Heck Marx was convinced that the proper implementation of Communism would lead to government just fading away altogether. How can a government that doesn't even exist anymore do all the schit you're afraid of?

    You are who you roll with ... and you are what you are ... that's Barack's world.

    Imagine sitting in a church for 20 years and claiming you didn't listen to the sermons ... :rofl:

    How do you bring the world's strongest superpower to it's knees? From within .. it's the only way.

    Obama isn't trying to destroy the country ... but the knees part ... well ... when you'e in the gutter you get a chance to rebuild ... your way.

    Well I can see you ain't Catholic. The sermons go in one ear and out the other. Catholics remember the standard part, the part that's only recently (prolly 500 years ago) been translated from the Latin; but the part where the 26 yr old virgin* tries to tell everyone else how to live his/her life...

    yeah, that gets forgotten before people have managed to get home.

    Only those not exposed to religion at all seem to have difficulty with the Obamas not really paying much attention to Rev Wright, those of us who had to go know exactly what they were talking about.


    *Thank you Clint for providing that oh so utterly perfect way of describing the average priest.

    Well we see the reasons for the Czars now no Senate reviews so communist can be appointed to positions of power over American citizens and companies with no questioning from the press of course.

    As much as I do not like the title, these appointments have been a tradition for a while now... they are not unique to Obama.

    To the people who have actually been forced to live under "communism" -- as well as to those who know about it -- your post is as naive as it is disingenuous, the stuff of nothing more than a "useful idiot".

    "Communism" cannot exist without being "totalitarian". Not one single regime created in the past 100 years under the name of "communism" has EVER maintained its domination and control over innocent peoples' lives without the required totalitarianism that ABSOLUTELY tells you:

    -- you CANNOT own a private fire-arm (always Rule #1 in ANY attempt to dominate people; even non-communist regimes knew this, thus the battles at Concord and Lexington in 1775 as the Brits tried to take away the American guns; communist regimes simply perfected this total and complete prohibition of private arms and all other means of self-defense, as people were/are always told "the party will take care of you" (sic) );

    -- you CANNOT worship as you freely choose;

    -- you CANNOT own private property;

    -- you MUST work ONLY in (communist) government approved employment or you lose all rights;

    -- you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT leave the country any time you wise, thus the thousands of miles of armed borders all around the Soviet and most other communist states, replete with land mines and automatic guns to shoot anyone who ventures into the "no man's land" adjacent to the border;

    -- you ABSOLUTELY WILL have a knock on the door at 2:00 AM if the communist party decides you need it, end of story, no appeal, no independent court, no legal counsel, no NOTHING except a box-car to take you Siberia if you are "lucky" or a black sedan to take you to the local burial pits if you are not.


    People who haven't got the first clue about how communist regimes have operated for the past 100 years should not open their mouths.

    Because until it becomes the official power in control they have to hide the fact where their sympathies lie.

    An Eco Capitalist is not a communist.. by its very definition they are diametrically opposed, and never the twain shall meet.

    Wow, to be called naive by someone who's surrendered his life to a con man's cult, interesting. The fact is that Moon would've jumped at the chance to do all that stuff if he could have ever acquired an army to back him up, does that make him a commie too Foggy?

    The quote is originally from the East Bay Express for November 2, 2005. By the way, you may not like Glenn Beck, but how does attacking him change the quote by Van Jones? The quote didn't originate with Beck, he's only putting it out for people to learn about. Also, I find what Beck has to say very interesting, although he seems a bit too paranoid sometimes...but he does a pretty good job of backing up his facts.

    Oh, and to the guy who is picking on the "is" vs "was" stuff...according to Van Jones' quote, he was an avid Communist through 2002. Do you have proof that he has gone the completely different way now? Considering his response in February to the question about Marxism, I think it's safe to say that he hasn't.

    So, either Obama sat in the church for twenty years and had no clue what Wright was preaching, which would show horrible discernment, or he sat in the church for twenty years because he agreed with what Wright was preaching, also showimg horrible discernment. Either way, he displayed bad judgement.

    He is not a communist and Glenn Beck is perpetuating this myth, it is not all that complicated.

    From his web site.. does not sound all that communist to this viewer.

    Exactly, I could never understand Liberals treating Communism as some Little Boogie Man Joke, Liberals are supposed to be so "kind and caring" do they turn a blind eye at what Communist Dictators do in this world.

    I am not an eductated man, I see many liberal intelligent young people right on this Forum do they not understand that under Communism, Liberalism would be destroyed.

    Under Communism Cindy Sheehan and her whole family would have been taken into the woods at night and SHOT DEAD, under Communism if people like Jon Stewart, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck etc went on TV and talked about the Nations Leader as they do in America they would be hanged along with all of their families.

    Some of us right on this Forum would vanish and the Forum would be shut down, America's "Spoiled" Liberal scoffs at all this, Moron Movie Stars Adore Castro/Chavez if they became citizens of their country's and made movies critical of them and their country's they would be thrown out or killed......:confused:

    YES WE CAN (we have our new poster boy)
    I have never seen an administration rush so fast towards Near Dictatorship and Progressive Socialism as this Barack Hussein Obama gang.

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL NOT TOLERATE IT THE TEA PARTYS WILL GROW, JFK, TIP O'NEIL, HARRY TRUMAN ALL DEMOCRATS, THEY WILL BE AT THE TEA PARTYS AND THEY WILL BE SMILING.

    DEPORT AUNT ZUCCHINI TAKE AWAY HER FOOD STAMPS.

    SLAP PELOSI'S FACE THEN SEND HER BACK TO FRISCO TO LIVE AMONG HER FREAKS

    You are right you do not understand, but are content in believing what you believe... never heard a liberal minimize communism as a boogie man joke.. this is about Van Jones, not the ills of the western world.
