(Clip showing Jones)
Who is Obama's green job czar? Van Jones. (See background in WorldNetDaily)
(Clip showing Jones saying he works for Obama and that he is a community organizer. Beck gives Jones' background at Yale. Jones thanks Nancy Pelosi for her help.)
Beck: A major turning point came in 1993 when he was arrested during the Rodney King riot. In jail he, quote, met all of these young radical people of color, I mean really radical, communists and anarchists, and it was, like, this is what I need to be a part of.
The verdicts, which cleared the cops of beating Rodney King came down in late April of that year. Jones said, by August I was a communist.
He spent the next ten years as a full-fledged radical, among other things, a group called STORM, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement.
Note: Van Jones spearheaded the movement to get Beck off the air.

Last Thursday, President Obama appeared on the Michael Smerconish radio show and stated that none of the health care bills in Washington D.C. would give illegal aliens taxpayer-funded health care.
