    II cannot believe that CNN has Van Jones as a host in his new program Crossfire and
    I cannot believe that Newt Gingrich is hosting a show with Van Jones.
    Does CNN knows who Van Jones is ? If you don’t know or don’t want to know who
    Van Jones is I will refresh your mind.
    Van Jones is a self admitted communist who is trying to undermine this country by his
    own admission, just listen to his speeches against the US and his love for socialism-communism, there are many.
    Why was he fire as a czar by even Obama, do you know ? or do I have to remind you too?
    I come from a communist country, I know communism, you might think nothing of it
    but it is a ruthless and criminal system beyond description, and behind Mr. Jones smile is a dark commitment to destroy democracy and turn this country into that system.. I knew
    people In my country just like him that once they got control of the country they were the most ruthless and criminal and loved to oppress the people they ruled.
    All the people I know that came to this country running from a communist system for their lives cannot believe that this man is a host of Crossfire, a program that he will ban
    and at least incarcerate its members if he has a chance..
    Why CNN promotes a man like this and give him credibility by having him as a host in that program. American Death Wish?

      "If we really wanted to help our communities escape the cycle of incarceration, we had to start focusing on job, wealth and health creation." Van Jones- 2005.

      These are not the word of a communist. He obviously changed since at the age of 24 in 1992 said he was a communist. I've heard 24 year olds say things they didn't follow years later. Also, he wanted to undermine the war on al qaeda.

      He was removed as green jobs adviser. With the right wing pundits using him as a lightning rod for attention to communism/his past, it made it impossible to make any actual progress.

      Reread the first line I posted- I think he was attracted by the supposed equality that communism brings (which we know doesn't work) and developed into a liberal who sees economic prosperity as a route to help all.
