The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Strikes Again

Van Jones, President Obama’s special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality (a.k.a., the Green Czar), has resigned. Finally. The Washington Post reports Mr. Jones’ statement:

“I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today,” Jones said in a statement dated Sept 5 released around midnight on Sept 6.

“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me.They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide,” he continued. “I have been inundated with calls — from across the political spectrum — urging me to ‘stay and fight.’ But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future.” [emphasis mine]

Yep, it’s all the fault of those mouth-breathers who are against clean energy and against reform of health care. It’s a smear campaign, I tell ya!

Just one question, Mr. Jones. Will you please tell us what lies have been spread, and what has been distorted? Did you not sign a 9/11 Truth Organization’s petition in 2004? Were you not part of the organizing committee of an early Truther movement that posited that the Bush administration was somehow behind the 9/11 attacks as early as 2002? Did you not claim to be a communist? Did you not call Republicans “assholes“?

Okay, that’s really a bunch of questions, but it all boils down to this: precisely what lies have been told about you, your history, your beliefs, your associates?

Oh, also, just exactly who has been inundating you with calls to “stay and fight”? Really, I’m sure we’d all love to know.

Mr. Jones, if you didn’t have a past that needed “defending or explaining,” people probably wouldn’t be asking so many questions about it.

    And people want to know why Obama wants the right to disconnect us from the Internet “in case of emergency.”

    I’m pretty sure he’d consider THIS an emergency.

    Killing freedon and Democracy ain’t as easy as you thought it would be, eh, Mr. President?
