Far Left Going Mad Over Van Jones, Imploding From Slap From Reality

Published by at 10:53 am under 2010 Elections,All General Discussions

Americans don’t support progressive or socialistic or liberal policies. End of fact. As long as this eludes the left they will continue to sink in the polls and doom the Democrats to political suicide in 2010.

Americans know there are endless ways to protect the environment, provide health care, educate the children, care for the needy, support the elderly and provide everyone a shot at their dreams without destroying our free markets, removing personal success from society, attempting to de-modernize our society to use less energy and push everyone into government rationed health care.

In short, we know there are plenty of solutions without socialistic or fascistic solutions – where the superior elites control the lives of the rest of us rubes.

Van Jones is a perfect example of reality slapping the liberal/progressive left up side their ignorant heads. The left wing response to the fact this nation tolerates their diversity, but would not follow them to a grocery store (no clue what ditzy faux food products they may pick – probably something made of algae) indicates how delusional these people are. They claimed they would work with others to solve this nation’s problems and were elected to an opportunity.

They lied. Since coming to power they have been trying to cram their bizarre and failed world views down our collective throats. They should have realized the danger after a period when the ‘true conservatives’ overstepped their cone of support and were ousted. As I noted yesterday, instead of listening to the people of American, they intend to force us to do what they want, come hell or high water. Well, Hell is here – with the high water.

In their minds, the left cannot really be as out of touch with this nation as the entire month of August signaled. Instead of reading the warning signs (loud, blaring and intense as they were) these people doubled down and kept pushing rejected left wing notions. They tipped their hand, the facade of a partnership was ripped away.

The problem, in their minds of course, is America is obviously  a nation of racists who are blocking their liberal/progressive dreams:

This was a lynch mob and, when it started forming a month ago, we didn’t take it seriously enough.

What we underestimated was the power of the fact that both Jones and the Barack Obama are black. Yes, the hysteria was about politics — I don’t think Fox News really cares about Jones’s ethnicity — but it was enabled by race.

A convenient self delusion. How could it be their superior liberal ideals?!

Let me point out the obvious to the little Einsteins on the far left trying to avoid the truth of reality in America. If America was afraid of the uppity black man (a) he wouldn’t have been elected in an incredible wave of support and (b) would not have taken office with incredibly high approval ratings (nearly 70%). President Obama would never been given the honor and opportunity he was openly and happily given. He and the DC Libs squandered that opportunity. That has nothing to do with race and everything to do with his blaring lack of experience in DC.

This ain’t about race folks. It’s about the fact the far left is basically tolerated in this country, not admired. The far left is not respected.  Period. You can blame Fox News and Glenn Beck all day long, but you miss the essence of the fact:

In his statement, Jones was defiant. “On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” he said. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.”

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs cast the move the same way.

“What Van Jones decided was that the agenda of this president was bigger than any one individual,” Gibbs said, agreeing with the show’s host, George Stephanopoulos that Obama “doesn’t endorse” Jones’s remarks on race and politics, his apparent flirtation with the “9/11 Truth” movement, and his advocacy for the convicted murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Jones was ‘attacked’ with his own liberal views and statements. If it was a ‘lynch mob’, the noose was created by video and audio recordings of his words and views. Here’s the kicker folks: Jones’ words would not have resulted in his utter failure if they were not political poison. If Jones’ was simply tolerable to the nation, he would still be in his job. Jones and his type (now sprinkled throughout the administration, like ticking PR time bombs) are not acceptable to the voters, and that is why he is gone. This is the slap of reality hitting the far left right now.

There are plenty of people who support supposed lefty concepts who don’t see this kind of rejection (though, as I noted you can be for a clean environment and not require the removal of all oil-based products from the planet). For example, health care reform is supported in the electorate (reduce barriers, reduce cost, increase options), but a government rationed system is not. It is quite obvious that you can only pretend to use a good cause so far to destroy America’s core infrastructure and ideals. Americans are not stupid, they are tolerant. This truly American characteristic is demeaned by the fringes left and right as ‘mushy’ and ‘squishy’ – a.k.a. moderate. But it is quintessential Americana – we accept huge diversity of personal views and ideals.

We believe in the right of people to follow their own paths. We DO NOT believe in the right of zealots to dictate the paths of everyone else so they can live out their white knight fantasies. Van Jones and a lot of people on the left feel this is their moment to play white knight – and they are getting soundly (and rightly) rejected for their arrogance. Just like the far right was rejected when it stopped trying to find common cause and went into its white knight madness.

America doesn’t have a European or Asian history of relying on the Kingdoms and Royalty (the government) to take care of them. We are individuals – very rugged and independent ones. We have always been individuals. We don’t mind projects for the common good as long as they don’t squelch our ability to chase our individual dreams, make our own decisions, take care of ourselves. Government is a tolerated nuisance, not the answer to problems (outside national defense).

Liberals, progressives and socialists all misunderstood the opportunity the American people gave them in 2008. The extreme tolerance Americans have for diversity (individual quirks) allowed them a chance to show they could work with others on common ground. They instead tried to demand, like petulant children, everyone else listen to them and be quiet. And as long as they react like petulant children who need to be told they cannot have all they want and they cannot insult others, they will deepen the rejection of America.

Finally, once America realizes these petulant children on the left cannot work well with others, they will be relegated back to the sidelines of the minority. Where they will always be tolerated, but never respected.

    Harold,

    Agreed on Beck and Levin. Sadly, Beck is about as sharp as Hannity – which ain’t saying a lot.

  2. Beck’s done some good stuff – and to be honest, I think he’s a bit smarter than some give him credit for.

    I’ve liked his TV show. Haven’t heard his radio show as much, but he turned me on to a good book (The 5,000 Year Leap).

    He’s been making a LOT of Obama’s radical connections understandable.

    Is their failure in critical thinking actually a result of them knowing that he was “placed” into the Office of the Presidency? Just asking :)

    And personally, I don’t give a rat’s patootie about Glenn Beck’s IQ. I care that he is ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS. And he is.

    The Left is obsessed with race.

    No. Actually the left is obsessed with winning and they will use anything or anybody to accomplish this. Right now it is race. It has worked in the past but they haven’t caught on that they have overexposed the word and the ideology. Americans are asking “we elected a black man as president. What else do they want?” The word racist is getting old and has entirely lost the original meaning. It isn’t worth a hoot any more. You call someone a racist and they will reply “so?”

    I’ll tell you something. I am from the south. I have lived and worked among blacks. They are just like everyone else…some are nice and some are not..some are lazy as hell and some are not. You cannot tell who is putting a false face at being nice and who hates your guts. But one thing they pretty much have in common (in the south anyway) they have the biggest chips on their shoulders. They put a good face on so you won’t think they resent you but it is there.

    In my job as bookkeeper, I handled payroll among other things. Their whole attitude was I was going to screw them. Never mind I never did but they were still waiting for me to do so so they could jump on me. This was pretty hard to take since in my line of work accuracy is all and I am the kind of person who wants to be fair to all. There was even one girl who tole me she wished I would die to my face.

    My point is that I am afraid of what the results will be when and if we remove this guy from office or thwart his agenda in any way. The first thought in these peoples’ minds they are going to be screwed by white people. They feel empowered by our electing this guy. Wright’s church just brought this ideologue out in the open for the general populace to see and they ignored it. The agenda of this church is pretty much what blacks think by and large. Van Jones is not unusual. There are a lot of Van Joneses out there.
