Labor Day Bonus: Pink Slip for Green Jobs Commissar Van Jones

The Obama administration and Commissar Jones finally succumbed to public inquiry about Jones's ideological qualifications for his job and the public outrage that followed. After the Obama administration released the news of Jones's resignation, the MSM got around to noticing a couple of smudges on his resume that already had much of America fuming. Among these, from ABC:

"I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the [Rodney King] verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."

Jones and other young activists in 1994 formed a group called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, rooted in Marxism and Leninsm.

Obama's administration was so eager to tell American workers that Obama had put a self-avowed Marxist/Leninist activist in charge of a $30 billion budget for the stated purpose of creating so-called "green" jobs that they released Jones's resignation letter after midnight last night, that is, in the earliest possible hours of the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

What, no prime time announcement speech by the president? Maybe his teleprompter took the long weekend off.



  1. Yeah, the timing on the resignation was precious. It's one for the poli-sci textbooks.

    Isn't it wonderful to bask in this new era of political transparency?
