Van Jones: Obama Wouldn't Lose Black Vote Even If He 'Came Out As Gay' (VIDEO)

“So are you saying there are no racist blacks in positions of power? What about Mark Lloyd, Obama's "diversity czar" at the FCC. He has spoken publicly about the need to remove white people from powerful positions in the media. There is Eric Holder, attorney general of the United States. He is obsessed with race. There is Pretta Bansal who works for Obama in the Management & Budget Office. She is of the "critical race theory" school of thought and believes that all legal concepts boil down to racist conspiracies. She believes the entire concept of representative democracy is based upon racists assumptions. There is the President Obama. Throughout his "career" he has been fixated upon race. His first mentor was the racist Frank Marshall Davis. Have you ever listened to some of the sermons by Obama's pastor, the racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright? The first lady, Michelle Obama, is also a racist. She believes America was founded on "crime and hatred" (her words) and that whites are "ineradicably racist" (her words again). These are some of the most powerful people in the country. All racists. With power.”

“Zimmerman admitted to shooting Trayvon, and the police seized and are in possession of the gun. Why would a ballistics test be necessary?”

jmoser1973 on Apr 3, 2012 at 02:48:51

“A ballistics expert can determine the probable distance and angle of the gunshot in order to ascertain where the shooter was standing. From where the bullet fragments are found, the ballistics expert may reconstruct the path of the bullet using string or lasers to illustrate the bullet's trajectory. They had no intentions at first to do any ballistics work. They were just going to let the self defense argument ride.”

“The question isn't "why aren't Al and Jesse in Miami right now", the question is "why do Al and Jesse only show up when whites and/or Jews are involved". Just because you don't have an intelligent answer doesn't make it a ridiculous question. Rev. Jackson said that Martin's death shows how "blacks are under attack". 94% of blacks are murdered BY OTHER BLACKS. They are "attacking" each other. Yet they focus all of their time and energy on the other 6% of the crimes committed against blacks. I find it appalling that they are using the death of a child to inflame racial tensions. Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryand recently accused the Reverend's of exploiting the case to racially divide the country. He referred to them as "race hustlers" and "buzzards circling the carcass of Martin". Truer words have never been spoken! In regards to Zimmerman "walking free", I don't have all of the facts yet and neither do you. An investigation is taking place. He isn't a flight risk and they don't have enough evidence to hold him. If they have evidence to prove that he is guilty of murder than I think he should go to prison, not walk free. The lynch mob mentality going on in Sanford right now isn't helping anything. It's only going to make things worse.”

“you asked a rediculous question about why jesse and al aren't at some other crime scene. do you think it is possible for them to be at EVERY crime scene??? out of all the murders committed every day?? you must be insane. and anyway this is a whole different case. on many levels this guy should have been arrested. and also the family asked for their help. i'm not gonna waste further time with you. you're just like the others that think zimmerman should walk free. adios amigos!”

“Answering a question with a question is not a "rational" response. It's what people do when they want to change the subject. Since 94% of violence against blacks is committed by other blacks, it's a reasonable question. WHY DOESN'T SHARPTON, JACKSON AND THEIR ILK GET INVOLVED WHEN IT IS BLACK ON BLACK CRIME?”

“mel , I guess the black population isn't as outraged if it's one of there own race . It's only if another race does the killing that they become enraged . Is that a form of discrimination or are the whities just being profiled ?”

“How many deaths are the Tea Party responsible for? Ever been to a rally? There is no violence. There are no drive by shootings. There are no rapes/murders. Sharpton and Jackson are not about peace. I responded to another one of your posts. Go read it. Do your research. You are clueless!”

“If we weren't going bankrupt trying fund thousands of entitlement programs that we cannot afford maybe there would be more money to fund law enforcement. Your point is moot anyway. Even if Miami had double the amount of police officers as they have now, this STILL would have happened.”

“In 1991, after a 7-year-old black boy was killed by a car driven by a Hasidic Jew, Sharpton organized a massive demonstration. He hates Jews too. The good old Rev. Al invited the "diamond merchants" to "pull back their yarmulkes and come on over to my house where the score will be settled". Incited by HIS rhetoric an anti-Semitic mob erupted and a rabbinical student named Yankel Rosenbaum was murdered in "retribution". Sharpton accepted NONE of the blame for the murder, or the damage that was done to local Jewish homes, vehicles and businesses. He also refused to lay the blame with the angry mobs. Four years later he led a boycott against a Jewish owned shop in Harlem called Freddy's Fashion Mart. Their crime? They wanted to expand their business and in doing so no longer wanted to rent to a black man who owned a shop in the building. If it had been a white man, or an Asian man, or a Hispanic man, there wouldn't have been a problem. But it was a black man. Once again, here comes good old Al. His message to the angry mobs that had gathered was this, "we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some WHITE INTERLOPER can expand his business". Even though they OWNED the building. Anti-Semitic mobs once again took to the streets in protest yelling things like, "KILL THE CRACKERS" and "GET THE JEW BASTARDS".”

“Am I? Sharpton and his ilk are nothing but race hustlers. I challenge you to come up with an intelligent argument to prove me wrong. TEN people were killed last week-end in Chicago, including a 6-year-old girl, in gang related violence. 40 other people were injured. No sign of Sharpton, Jackson OR Obama. In Miami 14 people are gunned down at a funeral, 2 people die. No statements from Al or Jesse. Not a word from the president. No phone calls to the grieving families. What about the black "flash mobs" that terrorized Chicago, DC, Milwaukee and Philadelphia last year? Racist violence. Black mobs attacking whites. What did the good Reverend's have to say about that? Where was Sharpton and Jackson when a 72-year-old Hoang Nguyen was beaten to death, in front of his wife who was also beaten, by 4 black men in a completely unprovoked attack? Where was the outrage? Here is a fact for you Aspen, 95% of black murders are committed by other blacks, not whites. How often do you see Sharpton or Jackson addressing that issue? Sharpton is one of the biggest racists on the planet! He's down there in Sanford calling for an "escalation" of the outrage to the "next level". Sharpton has a history of inciting violence. Violence that often turns deadly.”

“Witness my community where last year a 24-year-old man drove to the house of his ex-girlfriend and mother of his 2-year- old son, let himself in with a "hidden" spare key, stabbed her father to death, then stabbed her new boyfriend to death, then stabbed his ex. She survived the attack, barely. There are crazy people in this world. If somebody wants to do you harm they will find a way, whether it's with a gun, or a knife, or a car, or a bomb, or their bare hands.”

“I didn't think of that. If loss prevention hadn't been racially profiling the poor young man they would have never figured out he had stolen something and there would have been no need for him to run and jump to his death. If he hadn't died there would have been no funeral, nobody touching the body, and no crowd to open fire on. I'll bet the security people were all white. This is obviously a racially motivated hate crime. Alert the media!”

“Well it's called reading news. I clicked right as aol changed what was up and was brought to this instead of what I wanted. Figured while I was here might as well read it. I only know from what I see commercials about the show.

And I was taking a break (as I am now) from my better things. As to my comment, it;s my opinion which is why I said it. Really someone doesn't have to be smart to understand that. Even the apparent mean and dumb people that apparently watch a show where everyone, even family, are simply mean and hurtful to one another.

And if my comment is just soooooo wrong to even exist as you seem to think, why comment? Yours has been my only comment to someone saying irrelevant things, so why would you have said anything? Ah yes! Because YOU watch this show and ENJOY tearing people down. So why not post a rather STUPID comment to someone? That's right. I almost forgot.”
