No, that headline is not an exaggeration. Van Jones, the man tapped to become Obama’s “Green Jobs” Czar, by his own admission is a radical Leftist, having referred to himself in 2005 as a “communist” and a “rowdy black nationalist.”
What I find most outrageous about this matter is that, other than Fox, the news media has been very quiet about Van Jones’ radical background. Now if Bush had appointed a man who had referred to himself as a “Nazi” and a “rowdy white nationalist” and had the background to back it up, do you think the news media would have been quiet about that? Hmmmmm?
The “mainstream” news media double standards continue.
