Van Jones, author of Green Collar Economy and presently Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, seems to me at this point the Person Most Likely to Become the First Green President. Recently, he has come under concerted and withering fire from the paranoid wing of the Republican Party, including commentators like Glenn Beck.

Please contact the White House and urge President Obama to resist calls for Jones’ removal. It would be a tragedy if such a visionary yet practical man as Van Jones were to be hounded out of office by lies and distortions. Stick by him, defend him, and make it clear to these right-wing bullies that such tactics as theirs are doomed to failure.

  1. Simply put, you must be an idiot or at best a communist as Van Jones has avowed to be.

    Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. “I met all these young radical people of color,” he recalls, “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.”

    By the late 1990s, Jones was a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who viewed police officers as the arch-enemies of black people, and who loathed capitalism for allegedly exploiting nonwhite minorities worldwide. He became a leading member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a Bay Area Marxist-Maoist collective that was staffed by members of various local nonprofits, a number of whom had ties to the Ella Baker Center.

    America deserves better than the likes of this man. You should think longer and harder about your choice.
