Organization's Ben Jealous says controversial figure is a misunderstood treasure

*Van Jones is an American treasure.

He is quite simply one of the few Americans in recent years to have generated powerful new ideas that are creating more jobs here.

He wrote the national bestseller, “The Green Collar Economy,” which provided the definitive blueprint for retooling American industry to create pathways out of poverty and generate a national economic recovery. He was a driving force behind passage of the 2007 Green Jobs Act. In fact, Van’s ideas have helped lead to the creation of tens of thousands of jobs across the industrial Midwest and throughout the nation’s decaying urban and rural areas.

Van Jones also may be the most misunderstood man in America. Read more HERE.

Yep, good thing for all that emphasis being put on green jobs, etc. and in light of all the "man made" global warming that this country has experienced this winter. Now that's what I call hope and change!

The Messiah made him resign because he was a "political liability."He is a fouled mouth ghetto scum appointed "Green Czar"and he doesn't follow Saul Alinsky's game plan.However,I haven't heard anything about Kevin Jennings "Safe school" Czar,with his NAMBLA membership.Obama needs more Jihad Muslims to balance out the crime wave.Like filthy fingers Tim"Turbo tax"Geithner,Christopher Dodd etc.

Did Geithner,and Charlie Rangal every pay back their $millions in hidden back taxes that they always intended paying for?

I am glad that the NAACP finally showed its true colors, this man is scum and arguably mentally retarded with his push for green jobs while Spain is being dragged to oblivion by them.

The 41st NAACP Image Awards gave Van Jones, to a standing ovation the Presidential award. Jones" Obama who took over the Titanic after it hit the iceberg" spoke about green jobs(which studies have shown for every green job we loose two regular jobs, he did not mention this)He said he loved Glen Beck and he can't do anything about it, he praised Obama.
Yes, an avowed communist got a standing ovation.

Only blacks would think that not only is Communism a new idea, but that they had it first.

This says it all. The NAACP likes communism and are truthers. There you have it. Giving an award to a guy who got THROWN off the White House Grounds because he's a commie. He just happens to be Obozo's best freind too. What the hell is going on????

The largest modern genocides have always been a result of Communists like Van Jones meddling. Look at Africa and horrible genocides starting after the active promotion of Communism by Cuban troops and Soviet money and arms. Blacks like Obama and Van Jones actually harm their own race. Look at Obama's support of a Planned policy of eugenics affecting the American Blacks disproportionately.

What is the source of the terrible self-hatred driving the NAACP to embrace Communist ideology so frequently associated with the decimation of the Black race?

Van Jones - darling of the NAACP, Black Caucus, Green Peace, ELF, Hugo Chavez and George Soros. Not everyone is falling for the Jones / Soros / Hugo Chavez stupidity. The comments on the Let's Worship Mother Nature website are pretty darn funny:

"Jones is taking up the challenge as one of the newest board members of an obscure San Francisco New Age-style organization known as the Pachamama Alliance, which has been creating a global movement to make human rights for Mother Nature an international reality — complete with enforceable laws — by 2014."

"...the organization announced creation of the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature to carry the concept around the world—and install it not only in international law but in the statutes of communities and municipalities across the U.S."

"The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature “is working to build a movement of millions of educated and inspired individuals, with thousands of successful cases of enforceable Rights of Nature legislation having been enacted at local and national levels, by the end of 2014,” according to the Pachamama website: ... "

"...Center for American Progress, a think tank closely associated with financier George Soros..."

"...this year’s April 22 Earth Day celebrations—renamed “Mother Earth Day,” at the United Nations."

"...U.N.-sponsored global summit in Rio de Janeiro next year...its aim is to produce new efforts at “global environmental governance..."

"Bolivian President Evo Morales has frequently said that “the central enemy of Mother Earth is capitalism."

"“Nature has the right to be completely restored,”"

"...mandates the government ban “introduction of organisms and organic and inorganic material that can alter in a definitive way the national genetic heritage,”"

"...the Pachamama Alliance, the Ecuadorian foundation has forged a strong relationship with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the U.N.’s flagship anti-poverty arm, as an official monitor of UNDP investment in the Amazon region."

"...the new movement for a radical regime of global environmental law that Van Jones has agreed to help organize."

Billy Ayers must be so proud.
