Dennis Gartman had an blog about Van Jones who had to resign as a so called Czar on the Obama administration...now he is hired by Princeton.

Am I wrong or was Michelle Obama the one attending Princeton, makes me wonder if there is a connection...

Instead of half-baked conspiracy theories perhaps you might supply some facts such as what he was hired for and what qualifications he does/doesn't have?

I love how the right wingnuts pee their pants at the
mention of Van Jones' name!

If your tuition money is going into Princeton, you should probably consider yourself really lucky...

I doubt that very much money on these forums flows anywhere near Princeton.

Former White House adviser Van Jones appointed visiting fellow

Posted February 24, 2010; 10:00 a.m.

Van Jones, former adviser at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, has been appointed distinguished visiting fellow in the Center for African American Studies and in the Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.

Jones is a globally recognized pioneer in human rights and the clean-energy economy.

----------------------------------------

Translation of last line: Jones hasn't done anything in particular besides recite leftist talking points and race-baiting; and recite long-debunked Manmade-Global-Warming pap.

Obviously a legacy.

Anyway... assuming your claim to be true, I would think that a Princeton education would have taught you that a single anonymous hand raised in a virtual sea of faces wouldn't in anyway contradict my posted observation.

It taught me that a factual counterexample invalidates a general statement.

And that people who ignore such facts are usually wild-eyed, blinders-on hysterics.

That last was learned by practical experience at the aforementioned educational institution.

I wonder if the white, middle class students at Princeton are aware that Jones wants to redistribute their money to provide jobs only to inner city blacks, to fulfill his social climate justice agenda?
