Communist Green Jobs Czar Van Jones and His Meddling Ways

On his TV show Friday, Glenn Beck re-aired a previous segment about the pressure group Apollo Alliance, which aspires to destroy the U.S. economy by having the federal government fund “green jobs” scams.

President Obama’s “green jobs” czar Van Jones, an avowed ”communist,” was on the board of the Apollo Alliance, said Phil Kerpen, director of policy for Americans for Prosperity.

Even worse, the group, which has ties to ACORN, SEIU, and Center for American Progress president John Podesta, has significant pull in Congress and helped to write the stimulus bill. The $60 billion in funding for “green jobs,” a utopian fantasy not taken seriously by economists, was inserted at the request of the Apollo Alliance into the stimulus legislation President Obama signed in February.

Podesta sits on the Apollo board. According to Kerpen, the Center for American Progress

sends out the daily marching orders, the talking points for the left side of the blogs and the online activists. And those organizers out on the street, the ACORN and SEIU folks, they get their daily talking points from that Center for American Progress e-mail.

The Apollo Alliance “is designed to bring together the elements of organized labor with the community organizers with the green groups, the environmental groups, and to access all of the big foundation money that’s been supportive of those causes in the past,” said Kerpen.

Apollo Alliance was co-founded by Campaign for America’s Future, the George Soros-funded organization that supports an ever-expanding welfare state.

Van Jones is also a co-founder of Color of Change, a left-wing racial-grievance group that is urging advertisers to boycott  Beck’s TV program after Beck accused President Obama of being “racist.”

The extremist group isn’t happy with Beck for a number of reasons, chief among them the fact that he did several unflattering news packages on Jones. The White House may even be behind a push to destroy Beck by convincing advertisers to stop buying time on his show.

Jones is also a cheerleader for the Obama adminstration’s planned “National Day of Service” on –of all days– Sept. 11.

It’s not likely many lawmakers in April thought that the community service measure they voted for meant that Sept. 11 was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.
