Most Communists masquerade as Socialists, but not all. No; I’m not accusing Bernie of being a “Commie”. i am accusing Van Jones, though — well, he admits it himself.
America has been dummed-down so badly, our history has become so obtuse, few Bernie supporters could explain what Socialism really is. Nor do they understand what Communism is. They don’t get why American firms and the wealthy would exit the U.S. “en mass” bankrupting America if Bernie actually were elected.
Nor do most Americans know what “Useful Idiots” are, but Van Jones certainly does! He manipulates them; and yes; that includes Bernie Supporters.
Socialism and Communism are the antithesis of what freedom-loving patriotic Americans are – why the “America Dream” exists.
One Ivy-League-educated lawyer (after his graduation from Univ. of Tennessee), Van Jones, is now a regular commentator on CNN. He doesn’t hide that he is a card-carrying member of the Communist Party. Yes; CNN has to know, yet they obviously don’t care!
He first gained national notoriety when he served as President Obama’s Special Advisor for Green Jobs (“Green Czar”) — until he was fired at midnight once his Communist Party membership was exposed.
From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Jones
“In October 2005 Jones said he was “a rowdy nationalist on April 28th” before the King verdict was announced, but that by August of that year (1992) he was a communist. His activism was also spurred on by witnessing racial inequality in New Haven, Connecticut: “I was seeing kids at Yale do drugs and talk about it openly, and have nothing happen to them or, if anything, get sent to rehab…And then I was seeing kids three blocks away, in the housing projects, doing the same drugs, in smaller amounts, go to prison.”
When he graduated from law school, Jones gave up plans to take a job in Washington, D.C., and moved to San Francisco instead. He became a member of a “socialist collective” called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM) that protested against police brutality.”
It’s no surprise that leftists consistently side with Islamists, and against Israel; it’s more than “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”; rather, it’s total disdain for our basic “Freedom”.
Quoting Netanyahu, “To understand the true dangers of Islamic militancy, we can compare it to another ideology which sought world domination – Communism.” (page xviii) of “Fighting Terrorism“. He goes on to point out that “Islamic militants pursue world dominance with no apparent regard for human life, neither their own, nor their enemies and that this highly pathological aspect (suicidal-true-believers), is what makes them even more dangerous than Communists.
I’d add the following addendum to that:
With Communists within (like Van Jones) and other global Marxists facilitating Islamic Jihad, Muslims become no less that a proxy force which the Communists will not hesitate to facilitate to use against us.
