Van Jones Award Reveals NAACP’s Leftism


Van Jones, the former “green jobs czar” for the Obama Administration, was honored with an Image Award from the NAACP.  According to NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous, Jones was honored as “an American treasure” who is “the most misunderstood man in America.”

This just cements what most already figured:  the NAACP nowadays is, in essence, a progressive front group.  That knowledge dulls the shock of them giving an award meant to honor “outstanding achievement” to a self-avowed communist, 9/11-truther and generally crass political operative.

There are countless other black individuals to be honored for their accomplishments and contributions to society. Clearly, Van Jones does not make the cut.

Please see my comments as well as comments from other black conservatives from Project21.org on this issue.
