Truthers are stranger than fiction.
As Mark Koenig noted earlier, President Obama‘s America-hating communist green jobs czar Van Jones has been exposed as a whacko 9/11 “truther.” Intrepid blogger Jim Hoft at Gateway PunditÂ unearthed this fact, which then spread across the Internet at light speed.
After giving the White House an opportunity to respond to Jim Hoft’s discoveryÂ –a 30-minute clock started counting down at the beginning of the program–Â Glenn Beck revealed the startling fact on his TV program Thursday:
“If you believe that about your government…wouldn’t you want to find out who in our government was trying to kill innocent Americans, 3,000 innocent Americans?”
Beck continued, “”Did President Obama know about all of this, all of this…a guy that believes that Bush intentionally killed 3,000 american citizens?”
Beck said either “the president has the worst vetting system in the history of our country,” or the “more terrifying” possibility is that “our president knew exactly what this guy believed and this is the kind of man he’s looking for in his administration for his agenda.”
Beck showed video footage of senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett bragging about the administration’s hiring of Jones:
Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House. We’ve been watching him really for, he’s not that old,Â for as long as he’s been activeÂ out in Oakland [California] and all of the creative ideas that he has and so now we have captured that.
Interestingly, George Soros‘s minions at Media Matters for America, who claim to fight “conservative misinformation,” haven’t posted much about Van Jones over the last 24 hours despite the flood of media attention to the story. Is this an acknowledgement by Media Matters that reports in the so-called conservative mediaÂ about Jones are actuallyÂ true?
