9/11 Truther Van Jones: George Bush Hates Black People

Matthew Vadum | September 4, 2009

After the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina and the Bush adminstration’s widely criticized response to it, green jobs czar and 9/11 “truther” Van Jones channelled Kanye West.

In a Sept. 1, 2005 Huffington Post op-ed, “Bush’s Role in the Drowning of New Orleans,” Jones wrote:

Don’t say that a hurricane destroyed New Orleans. Hurricanes don’t drown cities.

It was a “perfect storm” of a different kind that put that great city underwater: Bush-era neglect of our national infrastructure, combined with runaway global warming and a deep contempt for poor African-Americans. […] [emphasis added]

Now, if you think I’m wrong to interpret the Jones statement above that way, then the only other interpretation is worse: It’s that in his opinionĀ America hates (poor) black people.

If Jones meant the latter, that would be consistent with his communist beliefs.
