Greens Already Calling Van Jones’s Ouster A Lynching

Van Jones has become the Ward Churchill of the environmentalist movement yet green activists keep defending this hateful anti-American communist.

David Horowitz notes that environmentalists are already arguing that communist 9/11 “truther” Van Jones’s resignation over the weekend as President Obama’s green jobs czar was a lynching.

Carl Pope of the Sierra Club (an admirer of Jones) wrote a weepy op-ed saying he wished he’d done more to defend his lunatic friend and ally.

…on Saturday night, Van resigned, and this morning I was sick at heart. Collectively we — the environmental community, progressives, and the Obama administration — blew this, and we let our cause, our president, and Van Jones down.

This was a lynch mob and, when it started forming a month ago, we didn’t take it seriously enough. When I saw the first Glenn Beck piece on Van Jones and the Apollo Alliance as the new vast left-wing conspiracy, I could not take it seriously. Silence enabled Fox to keep pushing. […]

Oh, poor Van Jones. If only he’d been able to cover up the fact he’s an America-hating communist who thinks President Bush killed 3,000 people on 9/11 for political advantage, this never would have happened. Boo hoo hoo.

Jones’s fellow traveler David Sirota, a scumbag who calls Republicans racists for trying to force the dangerous, deranged Jones out of his administration position, is himself a longtime practitioner of hate speech. Sirota lies and lies and lies about Van Jones on this CNN clip:
