Liberals assembled this weekend in Providence, Rhode Island, for Netroots Nation, an annual conference aimed at promoting the progressive cause. Closing out the event was Van Jones, the former White House official who has distinguished himself as being especially hostile toward the American right. In his address, the one-time green jobs adviser warned the audience about the Tea Party and encouraged them to fight diligently to ensure their policies are enacted.

Comrade Jones: "“If the Tea Party is allowed to score a trifecta, their ideas already are corrupting the Supreme Court, you see that with Scalia’s antics, they already have half of the Congress. If they get the rest…and the White House…if the Tea Party governs America — if this time next year, you are living in a government run by the Tea Party — let me suggest to you that they might use power a little bit differently than we did. When they get power, they use it to decimate us…”

Jones also charged the Tea Party with “decapitating” unions. In the end, he went on to encourage progressives to push their values and to set their sights on December, when important budget issues will be under consideration.

Why are you making posts under my internet handle? Especially about topics I care nothing about?

I'm truly curious. I'm guessing that it's because you simply cannot tolerate it when someone comes on here and refuses to play along with your mental illness. Your next step upon encountering such a person would be to harrass them, or discredit them until they give up in disgust and leave you alone to shout into your echo chamber where you will only hear and agree with yourself and never have to encounter a dissenting viewpoint.

Is that it?
Yep

Van Jones is a comie and everyone sees it. Of course in Chicago that is a feather in his cap.

the folks over at Gordon Smith's 'ScruHoo' website seem to like Van Jones. Looks like Gordon would be worried about such detrimental affiliations if he wants to run for mayor

I wish Obamna would tell Jones to STFU.
