So Van Jones, President Obama’s chosen “Green Czar” has come out with a non-apology apology (you know, one of those “Sorry I ticked you off” things) and, more importantly has denied agreeing with any part of a 9/11 Truther petition on which his name appeared.
That might — might — be believable if he hadn’t issued a press release accusing us of a “rush to judgment” in blaming al Qaeda for the attacks and if every group he founded hadn’t held rallies against American “imperialism” and “worldwide aggression”. It’s only about a silly little millimeter from the positions we know he and his groups have taken to the batspit insane belief that our government conspired with Islamists to kill tens of thousands of Americans all in one day.
I’ve seen more plausible denials in Bugs Bunny cartoons. Heck, I’d be more likely to believe “He’s not in the stove!” than anything Van Jones says about his Trutherism, or lack thereof. At least when Bugs Bunny tried to trick to you, he did it with a wink and a smile.
Well, I’m not buying it and neither should you. Van Jones is not being honest with us and his so-called apology is offensive. He’s not fit to serve us in the role of “Green Czar” or any other government position. No one who hates America enough to blame us for the deaths of nearly 3,000 people is. President Obama should fire him tonight.
UPDATE: Duane Lester has the best roundup I’ve seen yet on dangerous Truther Van Jones. If you follow where he’s linked, you’ll know a lot.
UPDATE 2: As it turns out, there isn’t a wacky progressive conspiracy Van Jones doesn’t believe. It wouldn’t shock me if we found out he thought we faked the moon landing because it’s made of green cheese.
The left can talk trash about Glenn Beck all they want, but he’s never worked in the White House. There’s a world of difference between a famous talk-show host and a guy who controls hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars and is accountable to no one but the President.
