Tzedek: (a Hebrew word referring to “Righteousness”) – at the University of Oregon, Jan. 24, 2011.
Van Jones: Socialist /// A Presentation of the Oregon Humanities Center – under the title:
Former Green Jobs Czar, under Obama, spoke at the U of O Monday night. See the article.
In attendance were – liberals, progressives, members of the Jewish community, environmentalists, lesbians, anarchists, members of every leftist group imaginable.
Referring to the audience, Van Jones stated that the “Tried & True”, after electing Obama, has now become worried about the nation, once again, going the wrong way, … that the 2008 election was not the “great awakening” they’d envisioned.
He spoke in fairly specific terms, and used analogous scenarios to put across his points. He was, at times, inspirational, only to descend into name-calling and divisive language about the opposition.
He followed, painting word pictures comparing how we, with our laptops and our smart phones can talk to people on the other side of the world, summon information from all over the globe, almost instantly, and that 100 years ago someone like that, …. would be considered “a god”. He used that analogy to encourage us to be productive and solve the nightmare scenario we all now face.
As I said, he is encouraging and a good speaker, but again, he then accuses the opposition of attacking “diversity” and calls it their strength – saying that we have the genius of every people in the world – that, the languages spoken in his children’s school in Oakland, Ca. numbers 36!
It’s a good point; too bad he uses it to polarize gullible youth!
He then continues to attack and polarize, using vitriolic rhetoric (the newest talking point of the left – accusing the right of that, while doing it themselves). Rather than pull people together he uses one of (Sun TZU’s main techniques, from his book “The Art of War“, …. the “Divide-and-Conquer technique” – – – long been used by Class-Warfare-Socialists).
Then, he claims that HE, believes in an alien concept – numbers and those other silly little things called “facts”. Drawing more word pictures, he describes the biosphere, and that we ONLY have this one area of the universe to live on ….. Why then, use the Divide-and-Conquer tactic? Survival us easier when all cooperate!
His main point was that Obama and Progressives have to go to work to harness the 2 World-Power-Bases: FOOD & FUEL.
He continues, “revolutionizing how we create fuel, he points out that we drill holes looking for death to fuel our world, and we poison our food …. “
Sorry; I regress here ….. How did he not know anything about, … and was able to slough off my question …. about Genetic Modification of food supplies, making selling or even giving food to others a crime? I mentioned I’d learned to listen and read both sides and the audience began to react …. Giving him an out to ignore my question ….. he answers what he wants – not so great a speaker there!
He then distorted the facts and figures he states he believes in so, …. and claims only 5% of scientists disagree with Global Warming, a blatant lie ….. yet continues accusing the opposition of using Illogical Logic, and then moves right into promoting natural fuel – wind turbines. To those technological giants, he entertains again, noting there are no “wind slicks”, and to the solar power, there is no “sun spill” …..
He never mentioned that the majority of those particular green jobs created / produced by the Obama Administration were jobs for foreign nations …… so much for Van Jones – another PARIAH and PIED PIPER, leading our youth to the lemming cliffs of future progressive catastrophic failure!
