Van Jones: "We Don't Have To Be a Military Superpower."

In this clip he also calls for an end to divisiveness. He then singles me out as "hateful" in the next breath.

    We don't have to be a military superpower. We could just love our enemies into peaceful coexistence.

    What's all this 'rainbow' crap? Did anyone else notice his limp wrist around :45? Just thinkin'.

  2. Right. Because loving his enemies protected Jesus Christ so well from military action, it's no doubt even going to work even better for us flawed mortals here on Earth.

    And not only that, I'm sure that the Bible's exorts secular governments to put down the sword and try to love evil doers into submission. Isn't that what Paul writes in Romans 13? Isn't it?

  3. Y'know, these on the surface are actually decent words, and whatever you think about military priorities, the idea of being a "moral superpower" is a rather inspiring one.

    Here's the thing about, if not Jones, a bazillion of the people who think like him: He says, let us focus on overcoming racism, etc, to be an example to the world.... and these people will never, ever, EVER, EV-ER, say, "Wow, we have succeeded (or made huge progress), here we are! Let us now lead the world by moral example." Never.

    We (the US) will ALWAYS be morally corrupt and racist and not-up-to-par with purity of the beloved "other". Always. Always, always, always, until the end of time. They have too much invested in a US defined as such that they can set themselves apart from and superior to. What would a poll of Van Jones followers answer to the question, "is the US less racist than it was six years ago"? (after we, ahem, elected an African American named Barack Hussein Obama) What do you think? I'm betting a huge majority would answer, "No, it is NOT less racist". And I think we all get why they would answer that.

    Van Jones words are actually pretty. I have every confidence that has fellow travellers will applaud them heartily, and zero confidence they will actually act as he asks of them. It's far much more satisifying to be perputaully aggrieved, and thus granted eternal moral superiority.

  4. That same man would be explaining to those same people, in similarly pretty words, why we must gas certain people, if that is what would get him their applause.

  5. For Van Jones to speak of morality is..well..immoral. It is hardly inspiring when it comes from a race hustler/grievence monger who will never admit any racial progress has been made in the US. Why? It's the money. These people make a living, mostly at the expense of the taxpayer, as racial agitators. Hey, it's fun, and it's so much better than working. "De white man, he owe me."

  6. Being a moral superpower never seems to work on the playground with the school bully, now does it?

  7. I always find it ironic when Marxists express disdain and/or hatred for, well let's be honest; for any American who disagrees with them politically, and then insists that we should be able to sing Kumbahya with people with vastly greater cultural, religious and political differences. Of course its always important to recognize that Van Jones and the rest of the professional left, are first and foremost lying to each other. The rest of us are immune to such nonsense.

  8. I don't hear him say that we should give up being militarily strong, but that living morally exemplary lives and coming together we will achieve more than we do with force of arms. I'm not a fan of this man and his willing to throw the charge of hate around shows he's got a long way to go himself, but I don't see what he's saying as controversial. Most Christians would agree with it wholeheartedly.

  9. Newsflash! You(USA) are the fat kid on the playground with a pocket full of money and a big lunchbag. The playground is full of bullies (dangerous bullies). Will YOU being a nicer, more moral person keep you from getting jumped?

  10. It wouldn't be so bad if we were just an educational superpower. What's wrong with that?
