Van Jones: America deserved 9/11

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 9:03 pm

Powerline reports that Van Jones, who resigned as President Obama’s green czar, blamed United States military actions for provoking the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — immediately after the catastrophe.   The extreme-leftist site IndyBay.com reported on a rally in Oakland, California on September 12, 2001:

Hundreds of people gathered at Snow Park in Oakland tonight to mourn, provide support for each other, and speak out against violent United States policies at home and abroad, which they say are the underlying reasons for unprecedented terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington DC….

The bombs the government drops in Iraq are the bombs that blew up in New York City,” said Van Jones, director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, who also warned against forthcoming violence by the Bush Administration.  “The US cannot bomb its way out of this one.  Safety at home requires justice abroad.”

Newsbusters noted “Keep in mind that Jones had to be referring to either the first Gulf War or no-fly-zone incidents, as the war to remove Saddam Hussein did not begin until 2003.

  1. But the lefties said Saddam had nothing to do with 9-11.

  2. Just once, just ONCE, I want to hear something that doesn’t point at Obama being on the other side.

  4. God… September 12, 2001. What a scary day. We weren’t sure if we had lost 20,000 people, or what.

    Imagine the complete asshole who started saying ‘well, we had it coming’ while the people were still clinging to life in the rubble. When everyone was trying to get in touch with their New York friends and family.

    And this guy actually built a career on that kind of thing. no one punched his lights out… they cheered him on. That’s not the California I know, but it clearly exists, and that road would have ended in the white house if Glenn Beck hadn’t stood his ground.

    I don’t want Fox News and I hear Glenn is terrible, but he’s done me at least one service.

  5. I don’t WATCH fox news. I sure as hell want media that is critical of Obama.

  6. Juan,

    Jones should have been shot then and there on 9/12/01.

  7. Jones had to live beyond his remarks on 9-12-01. Valerie Jarret was watching with loving eyes and longed for the day she and Obama could reward him.

    And so they did.

  8. Clarance Page, Black racist and liar for the left is claiming Jones got “railroaded”. Page should lose his job, too.
