Glenn Beck: Your Science Czar is a Commie

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama’s passion for everything science.

GLENN: All right. I made a pretty hefty charge here a minute ago that I quoted Barack Obama saying that healthcare ‑‑ I’m sorry, reparations don’t go far enough. They need to be able to get into our schools, they need to get into, you know, colleges and level the playing field and have free universal college, that way it will disproportionately help blacks. He said that about healthcare and also about the green jobs. Let’s see if we can see this be implemented now without you know what’s going on. Let’s look at our science update today. His new science czar, what is this guy’s first name, Jones? Van Jones. Van Jones is a guy that was all caught up in the Rodney King trial and he was actually arrested, went into jail in April, got out in August. So he was arrested for some pretty bad stuff apparently. I mean, that’s not a night in jail. He said, you know, I was just an angry guy when I went in but when I came out, I was a radical communist. This isn’t, you know, 1968. This is in the 1990s. He was a radical communist. He hasn’t shed that. He’s still a radical. He is still a black nationalist. He is also now your green job czar. How did he go from a guy who was riding the streets, going to jail, becoming a communist to the green job czar? Well, because he said he found the eco movement and decided this is the best way to carry out his agenda. This is just a quote from one of his speeches. He said, I don’t want to offend anybody here. I might be too radical for you. Are you with me? He asked. One woman called out, just being real. Quote: They can now put up wind turbines — almost like a windmill, but this is not your mama’s windmill, it’s like a big jet engine sitting up there — and make power. Somebody’s going to make a billion dollars deploying that technology (GE). I think it should be you. They have this thing called solar panels. A solar panel is a piece of glass almost. Right now wealthy people can put that on their homes and it cost money to put it there. But once it’s up, sunlight hits it and turns it into electricity and powers the house. So you’re paying electricity bill, but somebody else is just kicking it. Somebody’s going to make a million dollars figuring out a way to get these solar panels made and deployed in our hoods. I think it should be you.

After he was done ‑‑ now, by the way, this quote comes not from some radical rightwing hatchet piece. This is a piece in the New Yorker on Van Jones: After he was through, Jones made his way out of the nearly empty downtown, he says to the reporter, quote: That was my street rap. You get to hear my elite rap later on.

So he’s admitting that he’s "Working" the program. A few months ago Jones has published a book. It’s out called The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems. Hmmm. In it he argues the best way to fight both global warming and urban poverty is to create millions of green jobs. Listen carefully, please. Your country is being hijacked. They are using things like green jobs as a front. They are using healthcare as a front. In the context of Obama style reparations, that’s what they’re doing. In it, he argues, in his book, The Green Collar Economy, he argues the best way to fight global warming and urban poverty is by millions of green jobs, weatherizing buildings, installing solar panels and constructing mass transit systems. A percentage of these jobs ‑‑ Jones is purposely vague about how many ‑‑ should go to the disadvantaged and the chronically unemployed. Chronically unemployed. Usually there’s a reason you are chronically unemployed. He says in his book, quote: The green economy should not just be about reclaiming thrown‑away stuff. It should be about reclaiming thrown‑away communities.

This is yet another community organizer. This is yet another black nationalist in the same way that Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a black nationalist. This is an acclaimed, self‑acclaimed communist who has just written the book, "How one solution, green collar jobs, can fix two problems." Climate, if he even believes it. He wasn’t a believer before he went to prison. If he even believes it. Climate will solve inner city poverty. How? Because we’ll take money from the people who can afford to have this piece of glass thingy and the jet engine on their house and get them to pay to put a jet ‑‑ I’m just quoting him ‑‑ them to pay to put the jet engine, as he likes to describe it, and piece of glass ‑‑ that I like to call a solar panel ‑‑ on your home. And then on their home. And then on the person’s that lives next to you, and the one that lives next to them. And then everybody in the inner city, you know, all the homes in the hood. That’s what this is really all about. And America, you need to wake up because this country is being transformed, and if you don’t think ‑‑ it’s way beyond socialism. It is way beyond socialism. It is into black nationalism.
