Just when you thought the incestuous relationship between the media and the Leftist Establishment could get no more despicable, CNN commentator and humiliated former Obama staffer double down on his involvement in all things sinister by co-founding an organization dedicated to the absolute destruction of the GOP and America itself.
Van Jones, who in 2009 was outed by Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck as an admitted and committed Communist, as well as an ardent supporter of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, formed a group called Megaphone Strategies. One of its stated missions is to “use PR as a tool to diversify progressive movements.” Translation: The group will cobble together every tattered, off-shoot Liberal victim club and use a public relations machine to churn out negative narratives about America and the Party of Lincoln.
Anthony Kapel “Van” Jones was catapulted into the spotlight just recently following the election of Donald Trump, referring to Americans voting for the Republican as a “whitelash” against the agenda of Barrack Obama. Jones, it seems, has become quite accustomed to the symptoms of foot-in-mouth disease, as he has had to apologize multiple times in recent history for his past comments. The election of Trump may be causing Mr. Jones even higher than normal levels of angst lately, considering that the President-elect’s running mate, Mike Pence, was highly critical in 2009 of his involvement in Obama’s Administration.
Wikipedia notes: “Then-Representative Mike Pence (R-Indiana), the chairman of the Republican Conference in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas), Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, publicly criticized Jones.”
Megaphone Strategies, is now paying particular attention to the Electoral College and the so-called “faithless electors” (electoral voters, despite being bound by law in most cases, who have opted to vote against Donald Trump). This group is pushing the narrative that Hillary can still win if enough electors decide to flip their choice and vote against their State’s pick.
Jones’ group, much akin to one of its financial supporters, George Soros, has a many-tentacled reach to a vast array of intolerant victim groups. Some of the more prominent groups include Black Lives Matter and People for the American Way.
Proud Conservative details some of the groups members:
Molly Haigh, Megaphone’s co-founder and president, worked for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Haigh blames the Republican party’s “racist, misogynist, xenophobic fear mongering” for Trump’s rise to power.
Megaphone communications manager Diane May worked for Bernie Sanders on his 2016 presidential campaign. Megaphone’s website advertises the fact that May worked on both Obama presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012.
Megaphone associate Carlos Vera “previously worked at the White House, European Parliament, House of Representatives, and Latino Victory Project,” according to the firm’s website.
Perhaps, most telling of all is that even those not associated with either Obama, Sanders, or the Democrat Party politicians, they nevertheless worked in fundraising for the Clinton campaign.
Vien Truong, one of the firm’s four listed board members, headlined a Hillary Clinton fundraiser hosted last September by pro-Clinton environmentalist organization CleanTech Party. Truong also serves as the director of another Van Jones endeavour: Green for All, an environmentalist org that received a $200,000 cash infusion from left-wing financier George Soros through his Open Society Foundations as recently as 2010.
It should come as no surprise that this kind of ridiculous cooperation continues between the media and its Liberal lapdogs. We have witnessed an unhinging of a political party the likes of which has not been seen before 2016. Many pundits admit that this election was a political first in many ways. What should not be unexpected is the Left’s belly-aching with the final result. This Electoral College tampering and death threats being sent off these poor people is par for the course. It will only get worse. The Liberal meltdown continues…
