Matthew Vadum’s recent blog yesterday dealt with Van Jones, President Obama’s green jobs czar. Vadum touches on Glenn Beck’s exposure of Jones’s communist past.

In one of the day’s most interesting responses, Phineas commented on Matthew Vadum’s post today about Jones:

So Jones loves and praises Karl Marx / Communism? Joke is on YOU,Van Jones, and other Leftist Blacks. Most of the most famous Communists – starting with Marx, to Guevara and Castro – actually, totally hated Blacks, calling them every known epithet. Tell Diane Watson (D-Ca) the bad news.

Jones was the co-founder of the communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), whose heroes and role models included lovely figures such as Marx, Lenin and Mao. Aside from his dreams about communism, Jones is also very much concerned about racism in America. He is especially worried about contemporary “anti-Arab hostility” in America.

Seeing that Jones is black, and that communist theoreticians and despots loom large in his romantic imagination, it would be interesting to gauge what moral indignation and heartfelt concerns he holds regarding the following:

“Che” Guevara once said,

“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent… We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean: nothing!”

Maybe that is why it should serve as no surprise that Castro’s Cuba holds the distinction today of being one of the most racist regimes in the world. It is notorious for its atrocious oppression of black people. Indeed, systematic racism against blacks is one of the cornerstones of the regime. Humberto Fontova has chronicled the ugly and tragic record of this persecution of blacks under Castro.

For a charming look at Marx’s view of black people, read Walter Williams’ article here.

And since Jones is interested in matters concerning the Arab and Muslim community, it would be interesting to know his thoughts about — and political activism connected to — the violent capture and enslavement of black Africans by Arabs that continues till this day.

One might also wonder about his outrage regarding the blatant racism against blacks that is permeated throughout the Qur’an and ahadith.

Perhaps he’ll soon enlighten us all about these matters and how they reflect his sincere concern about racism in general and about his own people in particular.

Editor’s note: Get the whole story of the Left’s racism in Jamie Glazov’s new book, “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror.”
