Liberal Pundit Says “The Clinton Days are Over,” the Socialists are Coming

Van Jones first entered the American consciousness when he was handpicked by the President to join the administration as an environmental advisor, but was soon forced out once America learned that he was a closet communist and supporter of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Since then, Jones has made a living as a very successful political pundit on cable TV, particularly at CNN.

And it was on CNN Sunday morning where Jones pronounced the Clinton era dead, while simultaneously trumpeting the arrival of a new socialist Democrat Party.

Jones is not the official spokesperson of the Democrat Party, but he is an important voice for the “progressive” (read socialist) wing of the party. While his comments shouldn’t be seen as a definitive statement on the state of the party, they can be understood as a very well informed commentary of the party’s direction.

Here’s what he had to say on CNN:

“You have to understand, I think that the Clinton days are over. This idea that we’re going to be this moderate party that’s going to move in this direction, that’s going to throw blacks under the bus for criminal justice reform or for prison expansion, that’s going to throw workers under the bus for NAFTA, those days are over. You can’t run and hide. You’ve got to be an authentic person from the beginning. You’re going to be judged based on your authentic commitment to the actual base of this party. And if you don’t do that, you can’t win.”

Jones then went on to add that the socialist wing of the party, under the leadership of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Keith Ellison, would now take the reins of leadership and push the party even further left.

Pretty terrifying stuff.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
