Van Jones, a former the former Obama administration green jobs czar, is one of the leftists organizing the Wall Street ‘Days of Rage” protests. While these leftists are busy “occupying” Wall Street, Van Jones is hosting a conference titled “Take Back the American Dream.” At this conference Anne Hess, a major Democrat fundraiser, declares that the American Dream is about redistributing wealth. She goes further to suggest that free housing and free healthcare are rights.
Don’t be fooled by the leftists who are attacking the Federal Reserve. They trying to fool you into thinking their policies are similar to your own and they’re trying to fool you into believing that their policies are reasonable. There is plenty to not like about the Federal Reserve, but we ought not forget that the current progressive President is the one encouraging the Fed to inflate the currency. We have to look beyond these minor points of agreement, we have to look at what these leftists really stand for in order to determine whether or not we should support their movement.
Van Jones imagines that his leftist movement is the left-wing response to the Tea Party. The fact though is that the Tea Party wasn’t organized from on high like the Days of Rage protests. No one got arrested at Tea Party events, no one “occupied” anything and the Tea Parties never encouraged rage. From the very beginning, the Tea Party was an organic organization, a grass roots group of disconnected conservatives. For example the Tea Party in Grand Rapids is not the same as the Tea Party in Holland only a few miles away. There are multiple groups claiming to be national tea party organizations, they all have different sets of beliefs and different policies they find most important. This is the opposite of the Van Jones group, which is being funded by George Soros and being organized from on high. They don’t represent “the people” they only represent the interests of Jones and Soros.
Looking beyond organization, these people are socialists bordering on Communists. They believe in the mass redistribution of wealth. They believe there is a right to free housing and free healthcare. They have, at times, attacked President Obama for not redistributing wealth enough. Is the leftist opposition to the Fed really enough to make conservatives or libertarians join their rallies? One would certainly hope not because these leftists are protesting in the tradition of Lenin, Stalin and Mao. They’ll use your support today and when they get power they’ll kill you.
These leftists don’t want to reform the American government, they want a revolution. Van Jones and all of these guys are very up front about this. Their idea of a revolution looks more like the French or Russian revolution than it does the American revolution. It would have to considering the American revolution was about limited government and freedom, which is the opposite of what these leftists believe.
We need to pay attention to Van Jones and company because they’re seeking to fundamentally transform America through a leftist revolution. They want to destroy this nation, they want to destroy capitalism and they want to destroy freedom as we know it. They’re not joking around. This isn’t just a group of stupid college kids who are in it for fun.
