Watch as Van Jones whips out the Saul Alinsky handbook and 'rubs raw the sores of discontent' by predicting to the audience that while America will continue to become more diverse, it will become less and less 'economically prosperous.' Note that he does not blame the administration's policies for the economy; he blames resentment for diversity. He is obviously attempting to raise the anger of anyone who sees themselves as part of a diverse minority so they can prepare to confront their alleged oppressors. It's like cock-fights with humans and people like Jones are making the roosters mad so there will be a good show.
I also find it more than just mildly interesting that Jones is ginning up resentment against America among the population while the wikileaks dump is aiding our foreign enemies.
Via Sharp Elbows:
After watching that, ask yourself if this excerpt of the Declaration of Independence reflects the sentiment of Americans who despise what people like Jones represent:
He (King George) has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.Here is the video shot by Sharp before finally being permitted to record what Jones said above.
A better example illustrating the death of traditional journalism on one hand and an American patriot (Sharp) doing all he can to restore it on the other hand you will not find.
