President Obama's former green-jobs czar Van Jones, who resigned his office last September following revelations that he may be a 9/11 truther and communist sympathizer, accepted the NAACP's president's award last night and revealed that he doesn't hate his “fellow countryman, Glenn Beck.” In fact, he loves the man most responsible for him losing his job.
“I see you, and I love you, brother,” Mr. Jones said to Beck. “I love you and you cannot do anything about it. I love you and you cannot do anything about it. Let’s be one country. Let’s be one country. Let’s get the job done.”
After nearly six months in a self-imposed exile, Jones is reentering the public world with new gigs at the Center for American Progress and Princeton, where he will teach environmental and economic policy and indoctrinate students with his revolutionary ideology.
