Eight years later, 9/11 is an occasion for “outreach” to Muslims
In the true Obama spirit:
Obama plans to appoint aÂ special prosecutor to investigate and prosecute the CIA agents,Â ,Â who kept the country safe during of 911.
Because it is all our fault, you see. Always was. Obama knows it. Osama knows it. The whole world knows it. The jihad doctrine and Islamic supremacism? Pah! “9-11: The Desecration,” byÂ Pamela Geller inÂ The American Thinker, September 11 (thanks to JW):
- Eight years later, most Americans know that Islam is a Religion of Peace
- Eight years later, the FBI is partnering with stealth jihad groups
- Eight years later, Tiny Minority of Extremists still ain’t tiny: support for jihad/martyrdom bombings and Osama still high among some Muslims
- New Survey Challenges ‘Tiny Minority of Extremists’ Assertion
- Eight Years On, Muslim-America Wallows in Denial, Self-Pity…
- The Making of an Islamic Terrorist
- It’s Hell, Stupid/Obama may be more concerned with fighting a war on words than the war on terror, but it won’t change what Islam really is.
The true horror of 911 has been kept hidden from theÂpeople. I am sick of it. Sick of covering up for an enemy whose goal is to conquer this nation and render us all slaves.
Choosing their death. And eight years laterÂ we are apologizing? Vid hat tipÂ Bare Naked Islam
“The ObamaÂis behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from theÂ Americanpsyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry,”

Hussein Obama emerges as the radical leader of a new popular front. ….more
Those who were surprised byÂ the White House appointment of Van Jones â€“ a self-styled “communist,” and a proponent of the idea that the Katrina catastrophe was caused by “white supremacy,” haven’t been paying attention to developments on the left since the fall of Communism, or to president Obama’s extensive roots in its political culture. Van Jones is the carefully groomed protÃ©gÃ© of a network of radical organizations — including Moveon.org — and of Democratic sponsors like billionaire George Soros and John Podesta, formerÂ Clinton chief of staff and co-chair of the Obama transition team.

At the time of his appointment as the President’s “Green Jobs” czar â€“ and despite a very recent 10-year history of “revolutionary” activity â€“ Jones was a member of two key organizations at the very heart of what might be called the executive branch of the Democratic Party. The first is the Center for American Progress which was funded by Soros and is headed by Podesta. The second is the Apollo Alliance, on whose board Jones sits with Podesta, Carol Browner and Al Gore. This is a coalition of radicals, leftwing union leaders and corporate recruits, which had a major role in designing Obama’s green economy plans, including the “cash for clunkers” program. TheÂ New YorkÂ director of theÂ Alliance, who will be writing its applications for tens of millions of dollars in “stimulus” funds, is Jeff Jones (no relation) who was a co-leader of the terrorist Weather Underground along with Obama’s close friend and political ally William Ayers.
According to his own account, Van Jones became a “communist” during a prison term he served after being arrested during the 1992Â Los AngelesÂ race riots. For the next ten years Jones was an activist in the Maoist organization STORM â€“ “Stand Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement.” When STORM disintegrated Jones joined the Apollo Alliance and the Center for American Progress Democrats. As he explained to theÂ East Bay Express in a 2005 article, he still considered himself a “revolutionary, but just a more effective one.” “Before,” he told theÂ Express, “we would fight anybody, any time. No concession was good enough;… Now, I put the issues and constituencies first. I’ll work with anybody, I’ll fight anybody if it will push our issues forward…. I’m willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”
Pursuing the deep satisfaction of radical ends is the clear sub-text of Jones’ 2007 book,Â The Green Collar Economy which comes with a Forward by Robert Kennedy Jr. and enthusiastic blurbs from Nancy Pelosi and Al Gore. According to Jones, the Katrina tragedies were caused by global warming, white supremacy, free market economics and the “war for oil” inÂ Iraq. This “perfect storm” of social evils deprived poor blacks of the protection of adequate levees and private vehicles which would have allowed them to escape. The fact that a fleet of public buses was available but the black mayor and the black power structure inNew OrleansÂ failed to deploy them go unmentioned in Jones’ indictment of white racism. Instead, “The Katrina story illustrates clearly the two crises we face in theÂ United States: radical socioeconomic inequality and rampant environmental destruction.” To deal with these crises “we will need both political and economic transformation â€“ immediately.”
How did John Podesta and Al Gore and Barack Obama come to be political allies of a far left radical like Van Jones, a 9/11 conspiracy “truther” and a supporter of the Hamas view that the entire state of Israel is “occupied territory?” To answer this question requires an understanding of developments within the political left that have taken place over the last two decades, and in particular the forging of a “popular front” between anti-American radicals and “mainstream liberals” in the Democratic Party.
The collapse of Communism in the early Nineties did not lead to an agonizing reappraisal of its radical agendas among many who had supported it in the West. Instead, its survivors set about creating a new socialist international which would unite “social justice” movements, radical environmental groups, leftwing trade unions, and traditional communist parties â€“ all dedicated to the revival of utopian dreams.
The new political force made its first impression at the end of the decade when it staged global demonstrations against the World Trade Organization and the World Bank. The demonstrations erupted into large-scale violence inÂ SeattleÂ in 2001 when 50,000 Marxists, anarchists and environmental radicals, joined by the giant leftwing unions AFSCME and SEIU, descended on the city, smashed windows and automobiles, and set fire to buildings to protest “globalization” â€“ the world capitalist system.
In the direct aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the anti-globalization forces morphed into what became known as the “anti-war” movement. An already scheduled anti-globalization protest on September 29 was re-redirected (and re-named) to targetÂ America’s retaliation against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The new “peace” movement grew to massive proportions in the lead up to the war inÂ IraqÂ but it never held a single protest against Saddam’s violation of 17 UN arms control resolutions, or his expulsion of the UN arms inspectors. It did, however, mobilize 35 million people in world-wide protests againstÂ America’s “imperialist war for oil.” The orchestrators of the demonstrations were the same leaders and the same organizations, the same unions and the same “social justice” groups that had been responsible for theÂ Seattleriots against the World Trade Organization and the international capitalist system.
A second watershed came in the run-up to the 2004 elections when billionaire George Soros decided to integrate the radicals â€“ including their political organization ACORN — into the structure of Democratic Party politics. Together with a group of like-minded billionaires, Soros created a “Shadow Party” (as Richard Poe and I documented in a book by that name) whose purpose was to shape the outcome of the 2004 presidential race. “AmericaÂ under Bush,” Soros toldÂ The Washington Post, “is a danger to the world,…” To achieve his goal, Soros created a galaxy of 527 political organizations headed by leftwing union leaders like SEIU chief Andrew Stern andÂ ClintonÂ operatives like Harold Ickes. As its policy brain he created the Center for American Progress.
Soros failed to achieve his goal in 2004 but he went on working to create new elements of the network, such as the Apollo Alliance. Four years later the Shadow Party was able to elect a candidate who had spent his entire political career in the bowels of this movement. Obama’s electoral success was made possible by the wide latitude he was given by the press and the public, partly because he was the first African-American with a chance to be president and partly because his campaign was deliberately crafted to convey the impression that he was a tax-cutting centrist who intended to bring Americans together to find common solutions to their problems. When confronted with his long-term associations and working partnerships with anti-American racists like Jeremiah Wright and anti-American radicals like William Ayers, he denied the obvious and successfully side-stepped its implications.
Just eight months into his presidency, however, a new Barack Obama has begun to emerge. With unseemly haste Obama has nearly bankrupted the federal government, amassing more debt in eight months than all his predecessors combined. He has appeasedÂ America’s enemies abroad and attackedÂ America’s intelligence services at home. He has rushed forward with programs that require sweeping changes in the American economy and is now steamrolling a massive new health-care program that will give the government unprecedented control of its citizens.
Among the hallmarks of this new radical regime the appointment of Van Jones stood out for its blatant departure from political normalcy. In his White House role, the radical Jones would have represented the president in shaping a multi-billion stimulus package, which could easily function as a patronage program of particular interest to his political allies in the “Apollo Alliance,” ACORN and the leftwing unions. In the classic manual for activists on how to achieve their radical goals, Obama’s political mentor Saul Alinsky wrote: “From the moment an organizer enters a community, he lives, dreams, eats, breathes, sleeps only one thing, and that isÂ to build the mass power base of what he calls the army.” As the president’s green jobs commissar, Van Jones had entered the trillion-dollar community of the federal government and would soon have been building his radical army. The rest of us should be wondering who his sponsors were within the White House (senior presidential advisor and long-time “progressive” Valerie Jarrett was certainly one). Then we should ask ourselves what they are planning next.
