Glenn Beck's Video Biography of Van Jones

There are one or two folks that read this blog who don't also read Hot Air as a matter of habit, so I'm stealing this video from them because I think people ought to see it. Feel free to steal it from here and post it wherever you please.

I've long been opposed to Obama's growing (still growing) czar empire at The White House and fully believe it is because most of these people would not stand up to the confirmation process. Michelle Malkin's book, Culture of Corruption, makes this even more clear. There are currently over 30 czars and as I've written before, many of them are redundant, echoing jobs that are also cabinet positions.

This video targets Van Jones, founder of Color of Change which is leading the Glenn Beck boycott. Jones has been a target of Beck's even before Jones thought about a boycott. Now Beck has complied this biographical video of Jones:

There is no way the GOP would have voted, for their part, to confirm this guy had he been appointed to a cabinet position. So not only is Obama circumventing the entire vetting process, he's appointing people he knows would not make the cut. There's no way on earth he could not know about this guy's past. Oh wait, he'll say, "That's not the Jones I knew!"

Yeah, this guy is a full-on kook.

And it seems safe to assume that the job description involves creating jobs (outside of his own office) of some sort. In reality, and despite $60B of Porkulus funds dedicated to the task of creating a "green" economy... America's new Green Jobs Czar Van Jones has created exactly... none.

And here's a nice quote:

"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."

Good grief, when does this nightmare end?

Is there any right-wing talking point that you'll refuse to parrot?

Or can we just count on GOP talking points day after day?
