Arianna Huffington was kind enough to allow her good friendÂ and former campaign manager Van Jones to post his preliminary reflections onÂ being unceremoniously booted from the Obama administration on the Huffington Post.
Itâ€™s the least she could do for her buddy after that big meanie Glenn Beck was so hard on him on TV this summer. What a brute!
Jones is President Obamaâ€™s former green jobs czar. HeÂ believes the Bush administration caused the 9/11 terrorist attacks to happen. He also denounced the United States on Sept. 12, 2001 blaming America for the atrocities the day before. He also mourned the deaths of the people killed in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center but only the ones who were working class.
In what will no doubt find its way into the memoirs he might be contemplating writing, Jones compares himself to Winston Churchill, which is odd for many reasons but especially because ofÂ the apparent contempt that President Obama holds for the late great British prime minister.
With all the modesty one has come to expect from a community organizer, Jones writes:
Of course, some supporters actually think I will be more effective on the â€œoutside.â€ Maybe so. But those ideas always remind me of that old canard about Winston Churchill. After he lost a hard-fought election, a friend told him: â€œWinston, this really is just a blessing in disguise.â€ Churchill quipped: â€œDamned good disguise.â€ I can certainly relate to that sentiment right now.
He likens himself to the wrong Churchill. Van Jones is more like Ward Churchill.
Meanwhile, we learned the parade of reprobate ACORN employees encouraging or condoningÂ illegal activities or being just plain weird is going to be continued on the Glenn Beck Program. There are more undercover ACORN sting operation videos coming.
In other newsÂ related indirectly to ACORN, Jaime E. Feliciano, president of the radical Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1000 District Labor Council 784, has been convicted of possessingÂ child pornography.
Even before the kiddie porn charges were laid, Feliciano was already a convicted sex offender, the Sacramento Bee reported last year. The paper reported that according to court records, â€œFeliciano was convicted in 1993 of lewd or lascivious act with a child under the age of 14 years, which is a felony.â€
Two SEIU locals, 100 in New Orleans and 880 in Chicago, are ACORN affiliates. The chief organizer of Local 100 is Wade Rathke, who was expelled last year from ACORN for orchestrating an eight-year longÂ coverup of his brotherâ€™s embezzlement of nearly $1 million from ACORN. ACORN insider Keith Kelleher is chief organizer of Local 880.
Six months ago, ACORN tried to cover up the fact that Locals 100 and 880 are part of the ACORN network. It’s unclear why.
