Van Jones and the NAACP Image Presidential Award
Van Jones probably wasn’t referring to the ‘economy’ President Barack H. Obama pretends to have inherited from his predecessor when at tonight’s NAACP awards ceremony he saluted Barry, who as he put it “volunteered to be the captain of the Titanic after it hit the iceberg and we [are] still floating.”
Van Jones, who was fired almost immediately after Obama appointed him “White House Council on Environmental Quality” for his prevalent communist sympathies, previous statements made in strong support of 9/11 conspiracies, and vulgar behavior was more than likely referring to the sinking ship of American Capitalism in the wasn’t-socialist-enough vein.
What’s so ironic is that not only is the NAACP so ready and willing to throw support to an individual whose comments when asked why Republicans seemed to be able to muster more bipartisan support while in control than Democrats included “they[Republicans]‘re assholes.”
In case you just need to see this for yourself, here’s the video:
What’s not Ironic is that Van Jones is still willing to support Obama even after Obama threw him under the bus. In his answer to this same question he continues to say:
“As a technical, political kind of term. And Barack Obama is not an asshole. Now, I will say this: I can be an asshole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama, are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity.”
