Hang on to your hats. That’s what Van Jones says. An Arab Spring is coming to America and he’s helping to organize it for next month. And it’s all about that darned Tea Party and the people who won’t be bamboozled into spending another gazillion dollars of taxpayer money (which doesn’t even exist) on the “jobs bill” that the Prez keeps yelling for Congress to pass. MSNBC (of course) is all on board for the Jones program, whatever it is. The videolink and a partial transcript of Jones’ threat (I don’t know how else to describe this one) follows:
Van Jones: “We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.
“People who benefited from the bailouts and from the tax breaks should start paying America back. They’re doing great.
“Everybody else is suffering. That is 80 percent of the majority. And we’re going to now have a voice.
“And you’re going to see an American fall, an American autumn, just like we saw the Arab spring. You can see it right now with these young people on Wall Street. Hold onto your hats. We’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and to rescue America’s middle class.”
Now, what, exactly does Van Jones mean when he says there’s offensive that’s something like an Arab Spring coming to America? This?
Or perhaps this?
