Anthony "Van" Jones Is Still a Communist

Men can be radical Marxist feminists, too. Here is some background information on Anthony “Van” Jones to help put his political views in context. I encourage all of you to make a copy of the paragraphs below, so that you can put a copy of them in the “comments” sections on websites whenever Jones is involved in an issue or debate.


In his own words, Anthony “Van” Jones is a communist(!), “I was a communist.” He is just pretending to be moderate, now. Jones describes himself as a “rowdy black nationalist”. He also has said, “If I'd been in another country, I probably would have joined some underground guerrilla sect.” Jones helped create a group called STORM which is an acronym for Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement. The group emphasized Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.


His big idea is to advance communism through control over the biosphere. Jones wants to combine racial justice, class justice, and environmentalism to make what he calls “eco-equity” and a “green economy”.


So, Jones, by his own admission, is a radical Marxist communist. He is just pretending to be reformed. Jones said, “I'm willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.” Understand? He is posing as someone less radical so that he can achieve his radical Marxist communist goals. Jones is faking moderation now, only because he eventually learned that declaring himself a radical communist created confusion, fear, and retreat, among his potential dupes. He hasn't changed a bit.
