Self Proclaimed Communist Van Jones stumps for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

"In jail I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And I was , like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary. I was a rowdy nationalist in April 28 and then the verdicts came down on April 29th, and by August I was a communist."
Van Jones 1992

Jones, the founder and leader of STORM in a radical group in 1994, the communist
revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a
Revolutionary Movement. STORM's Communist manifesto Reclaiming Revolution was removed from the STORM website the day Jones resigned from Obama's Advisory Team (Czardom) after it was revealed that he was also a 9-11 Truther. However it can be found posted in archives here.

Gillibrand was selected to replace Hillary Clinton who left her Senatorial seat to become SOS. Kirsten Gillibrand appears to be the elite of liberal progressive left in the democratic party today and raises the question: Just how far left are you, if you chose to allow a self proclaimed Communist as a speaker for your campaign? I know some folks in NY who may be considered progressive, but have surely drawn the line of a free republic versus a dictatorial leadership for the future of America.

In a potential general election matchup with Rep. Peter King, a Long Island Republican who is contemplating a run, Gillibrand is up 42% to 26%, with 28% undecided, the poll found.

"Kirsten Gillibrand should be very concerned that as an incumbent
Democratic Senator in a state with an overwhelming democratic majority
only 42% of the voters are willing to vote for her," King said. "If I
believe by the summer that there will be enough campaign funding
available, I intend to run for the Senate."

Gillibrand posts her clear message on support of Green Jobs, which Jones was originally targeted by Obama and Valarie Jarrett to head up. "As a Member of the Green Jobs and the
New Economy Subcommittee, Senator Gillibrand is advancing policies that
will help New York take advantage of the alternative energy revolution
- growing green jobs and creating long-term economic opportunities for
decades. " However, as of this date has yet to identify what exactly qualifies as a 'Green Job'.

Gillibrand also advocates an amnesty program, touting her stance as, "Until we can find consensus on a strategy for reform, Senator Gillibrand
says we must treat all immigrants as human beings and respect their civil
rights. That is why she is urging Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to bring an immediate end to
illegal, warrantless home raids."

Gillibrand waited until other NY representatives chose to speak out against the civilian trial of KSM to be held in New York City, when finally of January 28th she released this statement, “I share the concerns from the Mayor and the businesses community, and I am open to alternative locations,” said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) in a statement.

    Green Jobs:

    Arm ACORN, shakedown artists with caulking guns and over pay them to do a shitty job... bringing your home up to federally mandated insulation standards.
    Van Jones: "Give them the wealth!...Give them the wealth!...Give them the wealth!"

    Gillibrand wants this cop killer loving, s*um bag on the campaign trail with her?
    And 42% of the a*holes who live in N.Y want her to represent them?

    Maybe people really do deserve the miserable representation people like this give them.

    Anyone who is endorsed by this commie should be removed from office. Interesting thing is that he is a "truther" as well. It casts somewhat different light on all those conspiracy theorists.

    When this radical 'urges' Dept. heads to stop immigrant raids, is she not encouraging our law enforcement to NOT enforce the laws we already have on the books? This whole bunch just makes me sick !!!

    So if Van Jones has a criminal record, why is he so closely associated with Valerie Jarret and Obama?
    Surely with his radical and criminal past he should be in jail for treason

    I think the progressives and marxists must soon remove their rose colored glasses and face reality for a change. If anyone would be positively influenced by a communist like Jones you can bet they won't go far in America. It is time we have a government in this country that is responsible and not one that is giving our country away and subjecting it to more and new affronts to our constitution and our personal freedoms.

    Sadly, she's my senator but NOT because I want her to be. She will NOT be getting my vote.

    Tell your neighbors and fellow New Yorkers about the kind of slime that supports her.
    Ask them what they have in common with a cop killer loving...wealth redistributing demanding...International communist like Van Jones?
