Obama 'czar' on 9/11: Blame 'U.S. imperialism'!

White House 'rowdy communist' held vigil for Muslims


By Aaron Klein

One day after the 9/11 attacks, President Obama's "green jobs czar" led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of "U.S. imperialism" around the world.

WND previously reported Van Jones, special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation to the White House Council on Environmental Quality, is an admitted black nationalist and radical communist.

Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," has surfaced on the Internet.

A WND review of the 97-page treatise found a description of a vigil that Jones' group held Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif. The event drew hundreds and articulated an "anti-imperialist" line, according to STORM's own description.

The radical group's manual boasted the 9/11 vigil was held to express solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans and to mourn the civilians killed in the terrorist attacks "as well as the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world."
"We honored those who lost their lives in the attack and those who would surely lose their lives in subsequent U.S. attacks overseas," STORM's manifesto recalls.
Also, WND obtained a press release of Jones' vigil, dated Sept. 11, 2001, and titled, "People Of Color Groups Gather to Stand In Solidarity With Arab Americans and to Mourn the East Coast Dead."
"Anti-Arab hostility is already reaching a fever pitch as pundits and common people alike rush to judgment that an Arab group is responsible for this tragedy," stated Jones in the release hours after the 9/11 attacks.
"We fear that an atmosphere is being created that will result in official and street violence against Arab men, women and children," he said.

On Wednesday night, Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck drew attention to a section of STORM's
manual that describes Jones' organization as having a "commitment to the fundamental ideas
of Marxism-Leninism."

"We agreed with Lenin's analysis of the state and the party," reads the manifesto. "And we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-tung and Amilcar Cabral."

Cabral is the late Marxist revolutionary leader of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands.

WND previously reported Jones named his son after Cabral and reportedly concludes every e-mail with a quote from the communist leader.

STORM's newsletter boasted "we also saw our brand of Marxism as, in some ways, a reclamation."

STORM worked with known communist leaders. It led the charge in black protests against various issues, including a local attempt to pass Proposition 21, a ballot initiative that sought to increase the penalties for violent crimes and require more juvenile offenders to be tried as adults.

Speaking to the East Bay Express, Jones said he first became radicalized in the wake of the 1992 Rodney King riots, during which time he was arrested.

"I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist.
"I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next 10 years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary," he said.

Trevor Loudon, a researcher and opponent of communism who runs the New Zeal blog, identified several Bay Area communists who worked with STORM, including Elizabeth Martinez, who helped advise Jones' Ella Baker Human Rights Center, which Jones founded to advocate civil justice. Jones and Martinez also attended a "Challenging White Supremacy" workshop together.

Martinez was a longtime Maoist who went on to join the Communist Party USA breakaway organization Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, or CCDS, in the early 1990s, according to Loudon. Martinez still serves on the CCDS council and is also a board member of the Movement for a Democratic Society, where she sits alongside former Weathermen radicals Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

STORM eventually fell apart amid bickering among its leaders.

Jones then moved on to environmentalism. He used his Ella Baker Center to advocate "inclusive" environmentalism and launch a Green-Collar Jobs Campaign, which led to the nation's first Green Jobs Corps in Oakland, Calif.

At the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, Jones announced the establishment of Green For All, which in 2008 held a national green conference in which most attendees were black. Jones also released a book, "The Green Collar Economy," which debuted at No.12 on the New York Times' bestseller list – the first environmental book written by an African American to make the list.

Jones, formerly a self-described "rowdy black nationalist," boasted in a 2005 interview with the left-leaning East Bay Express that his environmental activism was a means to fight for racial and class "justice."

Jones was president and founder of Green For All, a nonprofit organization that advocates building a so-called inclusive green economy.

Until recently, Jones was a longtime member of the board of Apollo Alliance, a coalition of labor, business, environmental and community leaders that claims on its website to be "working to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs."


Wild Thing's comment...........

Just imagine how the families of the 9/11 victims feel about this man being in a position of power to further his radical plans? How can we the people put a stop to these "czars" and the parallel government the current administration seems to be building?

This mockery of 9/11 makes me sick. It mocks the victims, the military, the first responders, the patriotic Americans who rallied in their country's hour of need

I am outraged!

The US is being controlled by the enemy.

The enemy is the anti president of USA. Who has is own agenda which is not the peoples. The problem we have is he already has his agenda deep into play. He has already set up his parallel government with what 49 czars who were hand picked and that report directly to him.... totally bypassing the senate. This is treasonous Obama and his people have nothing to do with the Constitution which calls for the peoples input. Everything he has done since he was sworn in has been unconstitutional!

And he took oath to uphold the constitution!! But then again the first time he took the oath he messed up and had to do it again in Chambers.

Muslims are encouraged to swear sacred oaths and then break them. Mohammed himself set the example, during the Hejirah. He swore a solemn treaty with the Jews of Medina, which he broke after it was no longer needed, and then he swore a solemn treaty with his enemies in Mecca and broke that, too, when it was no longer needed.

The President of Pakistan retold the story in his speech to the people when he signed the treaty with George Bush after 9/11. My take on what he said is that he was assuring them that it was necessary to make the deal with a stronger power, but that he would break his word like a good Muslim when the right time came.

The NY Times omitted that last five minutes of his speech from their transcript the next day, evidently thinking it was not important.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

OK, I'm going to be very politically incorrect here, but does anybody notice how many of these leftist, communist appointees of the prez are all black or some other form of minority? That's not good. Why? Not because I believe all blacks or minority's are communist or are incompetent, far from it. But because when this 'experiment' of Obama goes sour, it will be blacks and minorities who will be blamed! That's not going to be pleasant (or justified).
Also, there is something wrong with a society where so many blacks are churned out as either muslim radicals or communists or both...
Just saying...
Nope this is not going into the right direction!

Van Jones is nothing but evil. He is the "Green Jobs" Czar. He is also a devout(publicly Admitted) Communist. He is one of 34 (?) Czars,and who are all these Czars appointed to counsel the Prez. None are accountable to Congress, Why, because they can't get the proper clearance or a clearance at all to work in the White House because of their known Anti-American Subversive activities, but they are part of the Adcisor panel to the Prez. Accountable to Nobody. Oligarchy comes to mind.

Mark has nailed perfectly, they can't get clearance legally so the dictator appoints them. Meanwhile the gutless, spineless, servile and puerile Congress looks the other way as they have their power and authority stripped away by their Marxist-Muslim president in their defense of his moves.
They are nothing but Harem Eunuchs, one is to desecrate the Hallowed ground of Arlington as of Saturday.
Muslim terrorism should be highlighted as to it's origins, it began long before we became a so called imperialist nation. It was muslim terrorism and piracy that rose to the creation of the United States Navy and the United States Marines, to counter their activity on the Barbary Coast, they are still there as mollycoddled Somalians by the international community.
The mere word imperialism means a policy of extending your rule over foreign countries with aggressive extension of authority.
I can't recall of any historical event where the United States ruled any foreign land beyond the turf it's fighting soldiers placed their feet or had their lifeless bodies laid to rest, yet thousands died to liberate people around the world from those who make those claims.
I don't see an American dictate in Europe or Asia, lands we have repeatedly fought on to preserve the freedom of others, not for our selves.
No quite the contrary, we freely fight and die so those same sorry son's of bitches can come to our land, legally and illegally, to destroy it the same way they did their own. Black or white, you sorry bastards burden society with your illegitimate children, drain every resource you can rip off, lacking manhood, you expect your women to earn your keep and raise those kids, why you even expect the girls to become soldiers to fight for and to protect you.
All the while you demand my respect and honor. Fuck You !!! You spineless Communists.

obama the shit magnet. He attracts communists and other radicals like shit attracts dung beetles.

obama is a Marxist and a muslim. He is putting these people in positions both legal and non legal. They will be the framework of his new socialist government. He is inundating us with bills for new laws, rules and restrictions, many of them unconsitutional. He has a willing Congress as Jack points out that looks the other way. These new regulations will be constrictive to American businesses and we will become a second rate power.

Van Jones doesn't give two farts for the environment. He has found the Green Movemnt a way to gather socialists and get on the government money teat.

Tom R,
you are right along with Ed, Mark and Jack. He has, is and will surround himself with socialist traitorous scum because that is what he himself is. Oh, he also married one.

Junior needs a REAL US History lesson since the US Navy didn't exist in the early 1700s... Sue the Portuguese for navigating the Middle Passage slave routes. Obama is all about social reparations now.
