I am going to draw a different take upon Van Jones based upon the speech below given at the protest against the "Keystone XL Pipeline" on Sunday.
Admittedly this was going to be a "Blax News" article titled "Van Jones Says That Stopping The Keystone Pipeline Is A Greater Struggle Than Slavery".
Had I done this it would have crowded out the larger opportunity that Van Jones represents to MY AGENDA: "Forcing The (Fronting) Black Racial Services Machine To Give Up Their 'Congregational Unity Trix' Using 'Systematic Racism Chasing', Instead Coming Out Of The Closet As Full 'Left-Wing' Operatives".
The BLACK RANK & FILE MUST define its OWN COMMUNITY STRUCTURES - separate and distinct from any:
- Political Operatives - left or right
- Religious Operatives - regardless of the faith
- Entertainment Operatives
- Academics & Public Intellectuals
With the INFRASTRUCTURE set and protected by "access rules" - THEN we can allow any of these operatives to do what they DAMNED WELL PLEASE. No longer though will their "BLACK FACES" be allowed to USURP the "Black Consciousness" into operating under their aegis.
The Black Racial Services Machine that purports to offer this definition, structure and protections.
It is corrupted to the point that it is a THREAT to the actual attainment of a consciousness among the Rank & File and in our communities that will EVER produce that which they are still good to draw out our valuables in their political scheme known as "The Malcolm X Political Football Game".
THE IMPORTANCE OF VAN JONES' DIRECTIVES TOWARD OBAMA - IS NOT IN THE "LYRICS" THAT HE SPOKE INTO THE MICROPHONE BUT IN THE EVIDENCE OF PUNITIVE ACTIONS AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES - SELLING THE 'LEAST OF THESE' THAT THE ECONOMIC UNDERDEVELOPMENT WILL "SAVE THE EARTH" RATHER THAN BLAMING IT ON THE RIGHT WING
"Speak Truth To Power" Has Now Become "OPERATING VICARIOUSLY THROUGH THE POWER"
I tell you in advance that I have NO CONFIDENCE that the "mainstream press' will "GET" what Van Jones said and then, in the next 5 years:
- Hold HIM accountable to hold OBAMA accountable
- Report with an even hand on the VOID in energy supplies that must be filled with an alternative AND the consumer ability to afford this alternative WITHOUT turning to the "God Of Redistributive Justice" to patch over the scheme
I have no confidence that the right wing media will "get it" and connect with "the people" on the notion of ECONOMICS.
It is not that "man's activities are causing climate change". It IS ONLY that EVERY MAN KNOWS - but some argue that the GOVERNMENT that they want to keep guns out of the hands of "young Black males" is the same government that they are demanding that it remove certain ECONOMIC CHOICES away from the very people that they preach LIBERTY and FREE CHOICE to.
The flaws of right and left are clear.
The right rejects SOCIAL liberties as it points to the societal damage that "free love" produces and thus uses the government as its regulatory body.
The left rejects ECONOMIC liberties as it points to the damage to the climate, to families and to people who are left out - as it uses the government as its regulatory body.
The Diversity Movement's Damage To "Black Nationalism"
All Messages Must Not Raise The Ire Of The EEOC Or "Diversity.COM"
This Guy Seen "The Neil Cavouto Show" At The Protest March Said "I Will Stop The Keystone Pipeline BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY" And This Was Enough For Ta-NeHisi Coates To Ask The Photoshop Artists At "The Atlantic" To Morph His Face Into "Malcolm X".
When It Comes To "Progressive Politics" And "The Black Community" - The Same "Push" That Obama Asked His Base To Give Up (Knowing That They Are Not Going To Blame Him, But Instead It Is A 'Parent's Push' Out The Front Door To FIGHT THE RIGHT WING) Is The PUSH That The Black Rank And File NEEDS To Give Its Leadership - BUT INSTEAD It Is OUT OF "The Black Consciousness Nucleus" So Our People And Think Straight Without Molestation

Above Is The Construction Site Of One Of The LARGEST Gas Stations (Non-Truck Stop) That I Have Ever Seen.
On the opposite side of "Camp Creek Marketplace" In East Point Georgia - the large development that was built for the upper middle class Black consumer in the area - "RaceTrac Petroleum" is building a massive gas station - CONFIDENCE that there is sufficient demand for petroleum products from the (majority) Black consumer base
WHEN I SEE VAN JONES BLOCK THESE CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES AND NOT HAVE "THE BLACKS" COME AND MOVE HIS BODY OUT OF THE WAY BECAUSE THEY NOW REPUDIATE CARBON FUEL - I WILL BECOME A "MINISTER" IN VAN JONES' CHURCH
Summary Statement - The Majority Of Black People Who CHEER At The Voice Of Van Jones And His Commitments Are Saying "This Negro Is Crazy - If He Thinks That With 35 Payments Left On My Gas Powered Vehicle That I Am Going To Wait For A Solar Powered Bus"
