Appearing on CNN, liberal moonbat Van Jones provided an over-the-top analysis of what the aftermath of the Donald Trump presidential victory means.
A visibly shaken Jones said: “You tell your kids, don’t be a bully. You tell your kids, don’t be a bigot. You tell your kids, do your homework and be prepared. Then you have this outcome, and you have people putting children to bed tonight. They’re afraid of breakfast. They’re afraid of ‘how do I explain this to my children.’”
Jones clearly sees something truly ominous in the election of an America-first candidate who understands the economic pain of millions of Americans; a new President who has often stated the need for the country to avoid stupid and costly foreign wars and meddling.
Jones continued with his histrionics: “I have Muslim friends who are texting me tonight, saying, ‘Should I leave the country?’ I have families of immigrants that are terrified tonight.”
Mr. Jones should reflect what Donald Trump has actually said about Muslims. Last December, following a series of horrific jihadist attacks and murders, both in the United States and Europe, Trump suggested that perhaps a temporary moratorium on new Muslim immigration to the U.S. may be in order until the government can “figure out what the hell is going on.” A poll taken shortly after Trump’s comments indicated a majority of Americans supporting Trump’s suggested moratorium, with Hispanics one of the groups most in favor.
Speaking on the aforementioned Hispanics, Jones charged that “I have families of immigrants that are terrified tonight.”
If anyone has followed the opinions and commentary of Jones in the past, the direction his comments were about to take was foregone. He then asserted “This was a white-lash. This was a white-lash against a changing country. It was a white-lash against a black president in part, and that’s the part where the pain comes.”
The legions of working class Americans, who came out so strongly for Trump and for the future of the country may well have a message for Mr. Jones. Your Muslim friends have nothing to fear from a Trump presidency unless they are known terrorists or come from countries that are hotbeds of jihadism. Your immigrant friends have nothing to fear unless they have broken the laws and are here illegally. Lastly, ditch the anti-white racism, it’s getting old. The real cause of the events of November 8 is a backlash against a media and class of elites who have shown nothing but scorn for the very real economic pain and concerns for the future of their country that millions of “regular people” have tried to make plain, but are instead slandered and libeled as bigots and racists by those so completely out of touch.
