In November of 2015, Van Jones accused Donald Trump of acting in an “Un-American” way after Trump revealed the joy expressed by a number of Muslims over the 9/11 murders. It seems Political Correctness demands that the truth remain unspoken if it is likely to reveal unpleasant facts about one of Mr. Jones’ favored groups.
For those who don’t remember, Van Jones is the dedicated Communist appointed by Barack Obama in 2009 as a special advisor on Green Jobs. Jones “…was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM.” The STORM Manifesto had been available on the web, but, in a 2009 article, Ezra Klein reported that just hours after the Jones appointment, the “manifesto was removed and the entire website taken down.”

As a CNN guest commentator on election night, Van Jones claimed white Americans had been guilty of a "Whitelash" when it became apparent that Donald Trump had won the presidency. Only widespread racism, it seems, could explain the outcome. One wonders if Jones believes these same whites--many of whom voted for Barack Obama in 2008--were racist at the time, or if it was an acquired evil 8 years later. Ed.
