GLENN: Let me play a little bit more of what Van Jones said. He was talking
about being in the White House and the things he learned, and he just said that,
you know, people like me with my political views don't get into the White House.
The question that remains unanswered is the question that I said the day after
they fired him: No, don't fire him, I didn't want to fire him. I want to know,
how did he get into the White House! And he's now admitting that, that people
like me don't get into the White House. Now listen.
VAN JONES: and in airplanes, maybe going to Colorado or some place where you've
got a lot of turbulence and you just hope that somebody in the cockpit knows
what they're doing. I was in a cockpit for six months. I got a chance to see
close up, very clearly, the amount of peril the country is in, the challenges
that we're facing. I got a chance to learn that nobody in Washington D.C. has
all the power that they want, including the president, and that there are
informal systems of power that operate. And they operate along racial and other
lines. And we have to be much more sophisticated now. See, we did everything
right. We had six years of one party, authoritarian rule in this country from
2000 2006, and the people in this room did everything right.
GLENN: This is critical. Listen to this.
VAN JONES: We got 60 votes in the Senate, we got Speaker Pelosi, not some
rightwing Democrat speaker Pelosi and
GLENN: Stop. Stop. You hear that? We did everything right. We got the president
in and we got Nancy Pelosi as our Speaker. Not some rightwing Democrat as the
speaker. So his spectrum of political thought is so broad, it goes from the uber
left to the middle left. It doesn't even go to the right left. It doesn't get to
the you ready? Rightwing Democrat. Which, the ones who sold the country out for
healthcare, those rightwing crazies? Which rightwing Democrats did we have? So
he thinks the rightwing of the Democratic Party is extreme. What do you what do
you think he thinks of the Tea Party? It's extreme. Not like extreme, "Oh,
they're bad for the country." No, no. What do you think he thinks of people like
me? Not just he disagrees with the policies. Now, here comes the real part.
VAN JONES: Barack Obama elected president. We did everything right. So standing
flat footed January 2009, everything that we were taught to do we had done and
been successful. And here we are less than 24 months later and most people feel
like the hope bubble burst a long time ago.
GLENN: Here it is.
VAN JONES: Because there's other systems of power that we were not taking
seriously, and they have to do with the media, they have to do with the racial
discourse in the media. And that's the next frontier.
PAT: The media is the next frontier.
GLENN: No, no. No, the media, and do you have the Al Sharpton audio?
GLENN: The media and the racial, what did he call it, the racial what of the
media? Approach of the media or whatever. So in other words, what he's saying is
the media is a problem, and the way race is used by the media is a problem. So
that's the next frontier. To use race to shut down the media. Listen.
SHARPTON: We're going to Washington next week to meet with FCC. We're also going
to unveil a petition that we're going to challenge members of congress and the
Senate to sign onto and release on national action network's website who signs
on, who doesn't or who ducks. Because it's very important
PAT: Listen to this.
SHARPTON: for federal officials to take a position not necessarily just on
Limbaugh but on whether or not they agree that anything, whether you are doing
it explicitly or implicitly, against people based on race or gender should be
allowed on federally regulated airwaves.
GLENN: Stop. It is not a coincidence.
GLENN: Look, the left is very, very good. The right, who do we have? Really who
do we have? We have Ron Paul. He's on the he's on the extreme libertarian side,
who I agree with more and more every day. You have that can really make an
impact. You have Sarah Palin. You have me. You have Rush Limbaugh. Michele
Bachmann. But we're not coordinated. These guys are coordinated.
PAT: You can tell in their language. Listen to them.
PAT: They are all saying the same thing.
GLENN: Exactly what they're saying. And you have WikiLeaks being coordinated as
well. They're revolutionaries. This is very well thought out. A genius without a
plan will be beaten every time by an idiot with one. They have a plan. They can
say one thing. It's a solar flare. I'm a solar flare. I'm the same flare coming
out all the time saying this. Why don't people believe me? Because you're not
hearing it from several sources. So I'm a solar flare and they're like, "You
look up and you see that solar flare and you're like, what the heck happened to
the sun." Solar flare. Now, if that it's just that one solar flare going out all
the time, it appears that the sun is unstable. That's why they have coordinated
this movement. One will say it, then someone else will say it, then someone else
will say it, then someone else will say it. That way no one looks unstable.
Haven't you noticed that's what they try to say about me? Oh, he's unstable.
He's unstable. Isolate. Saul Alinsky. Isolate. Why? See, they look unstable.
