That Commie Van Johnson???

Van Jones:

Van Johnson publicity photo from The Last Time I Saw ParisIn a sign of how stupid the rightist sheep are, I've been following comments on the Van Jones resignation, and it is quite common for the nuts to call him "Van Johnson" and then spout off like self proclaimed experts on him, his life, and his political views.

As is often the case these days, some of them are calling him more than one of the following:

- A liberal

- A communist

- A fascist

- A progressive

In actuality, each of those is a category which is mutually exclusive to the other three, yet the rightists don't have a clue. I have to admit that even some people elsewhere on the political spectrum mix up liberals and progressives. Progressive is a broad political term in American discourse which encompasses people to the left of liberals and to the right of Marxists.

Van Johnson died last year, so he won't get a chance to take advantage from the publicity generated by the mistaken identity. He was pretty cute in his day. Jones would be cute too if he would just get rid of the pesky mustache.

One related note: rightist imbeciles are referring to presense of "Czars" in the Obama administration as "communism." If they had taken the trouble to read a European history book, they would know that the communists in the Soviet Union overthrew the Czar and killed every member of his family to make sure that Russian would never have a Czar again. If they want to use over the top rhetoric to butcher their points, they could at least call it "monarchism."

Oops!

  2. Jones had a single failing that is death in US politics. He expressed the truth without being diplomatic about it. Also Ronny Ray Gun, Daddy Bush, and GW ChickenHawk all had 'czars', such as drug czars.

  4. Henceforth all Czars will be called Advisors.

  6. The problem is, when the right has a candidate, be it an idiot like Palin or Bush, it doesn't matter, they get lock step in with them as the leader of their party like the Borg, and never dare to criticize them as it shows weakness.
    The left actually hold their people accountable, and since Obama wasn't able to do everything (or, anything) we wanted immediately, we began to back away, leaving him exposed and vulnerable to lies and misinformation from the right wing noise machine. It's time we owned up and stood behind our president, otherwise, we'll be looking at another term with another freakin' idiot in 2012.
