From Katrina vanden Heuval, publisher of The Nation, the leading intellectual organ of the neo-communist Left, comes this deception about ex-Green Jobs czar Van Jones:

Jones is one in a line of would-be public servants, stretching from Lani Guiner and Jocelyn Elders all the way back to those harassed by Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis.), who were driven out of public office because right-wing demagogues targeted and distorted their views. How is it that a man working to help Americans invest in a green collar economy ended up branded as an untouchable radical? How is it that such attacks led a skittish White House, admittedly battling attacks on many fronts, to jettison a powerful voice for environmental justice?

What a victory that was for the demagogues among us. Van Jones is back, but there will be other targets and well-coordinated attacks that Americans must resist, instead of giving in to those who would debase our politics through smears.

Note how vanden Heuvel doesn’t answer her questions? She knows the answer but she refuses to say it. Jones was expelled for one primary reason: he was a 9/11 Truther.

Yet according to the Left, it’s Glenn Beck who’s the conspiracist whackjob. I think there’s a term for this

Why can’t vanden Heuvel admit that Jones was actually terminated for a legitimate reason? The same reason you’ll never hear admissions from the Left that they were wrong about anything  from the USSR to Fort Hood.

Knock over one intellectual domino and pretty soon they all start tumbling down. And we can’t have that when a “socially just” future for all of humanity is on the line. No, we’ll just keep blaming those evil “rightwing demagogues” who keep getting in the way.
