During his time in the White House, it emerged that Jones had signed a 2004 petition supporting the so-called “9/11 Truther” movement; that he was a self-professed communist during much of the 1990s; that he supported the cop-killer Mumia abu-Jamal; that in 2008 he accused “white polluters” of “steering poison into the people of color communities”; that he was affiliated with an anti-American publication called “War Times” from 2002 to 2004; that in 2005 he said, “You’ve never seen a Columbine done by a black child”; and that earlier this year he called Republicans “a–holes.” Beck featured those stories and more on his Fox New and talk radio programs.
Now, after the White House, Jones has been embraced by the establishment. He is heading to Princeton University, where he has been appointed distinguished visiting fellow in the Center for African American Studies and the Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
See ya later. I’m off to join the Communist party.
By the way. Know any good cop-killers?
