Obama's “Green Czar” is an admitted Communist with arrest record

In little reported 'slap in the face' move, President Obama has put an admitted communist and former criminal in charge of creating 'green jobs.'

From New Zeal:
A few short years ago Anthony (Van) Jones was a Bay Area radical agitator-a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, waging war on the police and capitalist system.

According to the White House Blog March :
The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Chair Nancy Sutley announced yesterday that Van Jones – an early green jobs visionary -- will start Monday as Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at CEQ:

According to the East Bay Express, Jones said in 2005,
"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 ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary...I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th..By August, I was a communist."

Is an appointment for Bill Ayers next?

Dang, you are way late to the party - Van's appointment was announced *months* ago. Better get used to him - I predict Van Jones will be the first Green Party President!

His organization, Green for All, has been doing great work around the country - helping poor and unemployed folks in concrete, practical ways. Check it out and learn more at www.greenforall.org...

Bill Ayers' appointment comes the minute Obama can get rid of Biden.

This is a disgrace and insult. Of all the qualified people out there, he has the audacity to pick an admitted communist. I'm all for freedom of expression, but this is unacceptable.
