Re: “Glenn Beck Uses Express to Attack Van Jones

Does America have a reading comprehension deficiency? When the guy says he was a nationalist, now a communist, he is not implying that he has embraced the social and economical ideology of such tenet wholeheartedly but rather stating that if he was determined on his social justice (a reference to the Rodney King protest), now he is more radical to achieve such goal (social justice) than before -- it was a "analogical metaphor." Another prevarication that is circulating about this man is that he was convicted and sentenced. He was arrested while "monitoring" the protest for police brutality when he was swept away by the force. Nonetheless, he was NEVER convicted because the DA dropped ALL the charges.

There are a thousand and one reasons not to see Van Jones as a qualified candidate for his position, i.e. his emotional responsiveness, etc., but these conspiratorial garbage that somehow are aimed to smear his character for his philosophical zinger is the old bullying tactic prominent in the political arena. Glenn Beck and his ilk are nothing more than tabloid politics like US and People magazines who spread false rumors about Palin's daughter.
