Two More Radical Obama Czars

JULY 22, 2009

A self-described “rowdy black nationalist” turned communist and a renowned Ivy League scientist who advocates forced abortions will lead crucial departments as highly touted Obama Administration czars.

The president who has shattered the so-called czar record by appointing more than any previous commander-in-chief has picked two real winners to head science and a newly created White House Green Jobs department. Their respective radical backgrounds may concern mainstream America, however.  

First let’s take a look at Obama’s heavily promoted “Science Czar,” acclaimed Harvard ecologist Paul Holdren. For about a decade and a half Holdren, who has degrees from Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, headed a science policy program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

To oversee human population levels and protect the planet, Holdren believes in forced abortions, “compulsory sterilization” and the creation of a “Planetary Regime,” according to a textbook that he authored and that the White House concealed during Senate confirmation hearings. A major news organization recently exposed the alarming, radical ideas of the president’s chief science adviser.  

Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” has an equally controversial history. Van Jones is a Yale Law School graduate and longtime civil rights lawyer who became a communist after the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles and says he loathes capitalism because it exploits nonwhite minorities worldwide. He’s a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who became a revolutionary after meeting “young radical people of color” in jail and views police officers as the arch enemies of black people.

A few years ago the civil rights attorney expanded his cause by joining the liberal global warming bandwagon, creating a “green” job project for low-income people in northern California. Jones eventually launched an organization (Green For All) dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty and now he’s the president’s official adviser on the subject. 

Just a few months ago, Obama’s green czar accused the nation of “environmental racism” for putting industrial incinerators and dumping grounds in poor neighborhoods. Powerful rich people would never have allowed them in their neighborhoods therefore the country would long have a clean and green economy, according to the nation’s new guru on the subject.
