Van Jones plays the ‘treason’ card, says NRA wants to ‘kill USA soldiers’

Former green jobs czar Van Jones thought that tweet accusing the NRA of “treason” was so clever, he tweeted it a second time and tacked on an extra question mark.

Hey, Truther Jones isn’t saying NRA members are traitors and wants to “shoot USA cops & soldiers”; He’s just asking questions. Or not. His later tweets drop the question marks after the #Treason hashtag.

Tanks? Evidently Van is a Musket Morgan fan.

So, that’s what? Five #Treason hashtags from the Mumia-supporting Marxist Truther? Is this how that “national conversation” on gun violence is going to go?

Hey, Van, any last thoughts before you scurry off to figure out why the treason argument didn’t go over so well?

Yeah, we thought so.

    Obama doesn’t seem to have a problem with the fact that Nidal Hasan shot and killed US soldiers on American soil. Hasan still hasn’t gone to trial and you never hear anyone in the administration mention his name.

      He’s still getting full pay with benefits and is protected under our Constitution because his “crime” was due to workplace stress. If I hear one more thing about his “rights” to keep his beard and pray on his rug, I’m going to throw up. He’s a Muslim terrorist who murdered civilians and soldiers and should be put to death ASAP! In his country they just decapitate you first and ask questions later. It such a shame for those families to drag this out so long.

        • Elaine

          hahaha I don’t think Obama, Clinton or Holder are part of the GOP. They keep giving guns to criminals and terrorists. Talk to them. Law abiding US citizens are NOT the problem.

            The constitution is a work in progress.

            The Bill of Rights certainly aren’t.

            Hmm, “freedomtomakeupmyownmind,” huh? Wonder if you have any thoughts which differ more than an iota from the Media Matters style sheets or the DNC platform . . . not that there’s any difference of course.

            Haha, like the crowd in “Life of Brian”: “YES, WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT!”

        • Joseph Bentz

          That ability to make up one’s own mind and the freedom to due so was accomplished by those willing to pickup a gun and fight for the right to do so. The mental midgets on the left have difficulty grasping that concept.

          Wow. How marvelously uncreative.

    Tell Van Jones to ask Janet Reno about tanks. Waco burned because of one tank. And while he’s at it, he can ask Holder about military rifles being used on U.S. citizens. Remember Ruby Ridge?

      More great points. the libs have nothing to argue with they are shooting blanks.

      How many people are dead do to that ingenious plan designed by our government called Fast and furious?

    Van Jones is a professional moron.

      Excuse me, a professional Communist moron. 😉

  • Lord Foggybottom

    When he talks about drones, is he referring to aircraft or Obama voters?

      Great observation. Well said.

    • Dallas Worthy

      You mean the majority of Americans? It must suck to be such a sore loser.

        Not as much as it sucks to be a penny-a-post MM troll.

        We’re all losers with your guy in the white house.

  • Cleve

    Does he really think that in this political environment that our troops will choose to be sheep or that they will protect the Constitution and this nation’s citizens if this gov’t reacts in a way that the 2A was written for? He obviously doesn’t know our military.

  • bonnieblue2A

    Van jones plays the Treason card and aims it at an organization seeking to uphold the 2nd Amendment for all law abiding Americans. Clearly Jones sees Americans as his enemy.

    Arming and giving aid to the enemy is Treason. Suggest Van Jones look at Obama. Holder, Breuer and Co. for their role in arming known felons and Mexican drug cartels, arming Al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria , etc.,,, . That wasn’t the NRA you lying Marxist thug with a criminal history.

  • Elaine

    It’s funny, Van was the one who supported OCCUPY and they were all about SHOOTING cops!

  • AlertUpUSA

    Are we seeing a Van Jones flip-flop here? Busted, Van.

  • Maxwell

    It’s amazing how an agenda can make one suddenly care about soldiers and cops…

  • SalmonDaze

    Jones is intellectually bankrupt, but I’ll play into his silly little argument: yes, Van . . . any soldier who would violate the tenets of posse comitatus would be a legitimate aggressor in violation of my Constitutional rights and should therefore expect to have force met with force.

    Now, did you actually want to argue this; or are you continuing to simply post inanities?


    What a bald face liar.

  • Stone Bryson

    Considering the fact Jones’ former boss, the man he is supporting regarding gun control, was casually cozy with an individual who actually DID commit violent acts against police departments in the early 70’s… some cat named Ayers…

    Yeah, I don’t think Van should be throwing the word, ‘treason’ around.

  • Rico Mapster

    Just more communist propaganda. I submit that people like Van Jones are the true enemies of America.

    • Dallas Worthy

      Have you ever lived in a communist country? You gotta wake up. You are true enemy of America because you spread ignorance and lies.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        How many communist countries have *YOU* lived in? List them.

      • Rico Mapster

        Why yes, I have Einstein. And you???

  • xsnipe

    Treason is acting contrary to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights… treason usurping authority from the people… treason is supporting the muslim brotherhood in Egypt… treason is supporting Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria… treason is the governmental actions in the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme.

    Standing up to a tyrannical government is our constitutionally guaranteed right!

    • Lisa Dean

      I doubt Van Jones is knowledgeable of the Constitution since he seems to revel in Marxism.

      • Joseph Bentz

        The communist manifesto is Jone’s bible. He condemns our constitution because he has difficulty understanding the term FREEDOM. As a dedicated Marxists his brain is wired to believe in the subjugation of and enslavement of the masses. If there ever should be another revolution in this Country you will never see that gutless coward on the battlefield. He will find another rock to crawl under.

  • ceemack

    Like most liberals, Jones can’t seem to tell the difference between having the tools and using them. The right to own them confers neither the intention nor the right to use them for evil purposes.

    And if it (heaven forbid) ever comes to the point where guns have to be used against our own government:
    1. The cops or soldiers will be trying to harm US.

    2. A lot of cops and soldiers will be on our side.


    obama is the one that has committed treason . Obama is killing USA soldiers as we speak with his combat rules. Obama is trying to kill innocent Americans thru his policys. Obama is a pos.

    • Dallas Worthy

      You’re nutty aren’t you? He’s trying to kill innocent Americans? Are you really that deluded? Wow. Stunning.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    If ObveyMe tries to change the Constitution for his own purposes (and that of his cronies, Like Van Jones, Eric Holder, etc.), THAT is TREASON! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Kevin Kerwin

    Van Jones is a joke

  • clarioncaller

    When Jones mentions cops and soldiers, he’s talking about Obama’s private army at ATF or the ‘broccolli-biter’ Napolitano’s army of perverts at the TSA. Our military will NEVER turn against it’s citizens for Obama’s sake.

  • Yankeelouie

    Van Jones, proponent of the “Top down, Bottom up” school of creating social chaos wants a compliant population, not resistance by armed citizens for his Communist takeover and the alleged collapse of Capitalism. Hopefully most folks know the cat is out of the bag though I doubt it. If he was clean on the issue of treason he would be working openly in the White House to accomplish it instead of playing in the shadows.

  • SWwife

    Someone should inform Van Jones that was a stupid tweet.

  • DWeb

    So is VJ submitting that the US military should kill US citizens? Sound like it.

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    So a group usually asociated with nationalism (as in proud of the nationality) is a traitor to the country?

  • EOD

    The U.S. Military is sworn to defend and follow the Constitution, not to defend or follow the orders of Civilian Police Officers, and not to defend or follow the orders of Members of Congress, or to defend Presidents.

    Awww too bad the propaganda from the BSM isn’t working as intended:

    65% See Gun Rights As Protection Against Tyranny
    Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny.

    Not surprisingly, 72% of those with a gun in their family regard the Second Amendment as a protection against tyranny. However, even a majority (57%) of those without a gun in their home hold that view.

        By all means, please show us where he’s out of context.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Gee, they could at least try with their slander. The NRA does everything from raise money for veteran’s charities(and they raise a lot of it) to offering out free training to cops. I think their standing with the Law Enforcement Officers and Military Vets of America is just fine, and will remain so.

  • J.N. Ashby

    He is right, though I suspect he was being sarcastic, about how we shouldn’t limit it. Also, we CAN have tanks!

    • BeeKaaay

      Let us give tanks for the 2nd amendment :)

  • Rulz

    That makes no sense. Don’t most military people want their own guns?


    The radical left has no right to claim treason since they are guilty of it themselves.PROJECTION!!!

  • LordElrond09

    Does anyone else think Van Jones should just accept the b**ch slapping Beck gave him and shut up?

  • edwahzj_one

    Is some one advocating that pro gun is liken to murdering cops and soldiers? hmmm

  • kingsjester

    So says the Communist.

    So sad that this animal was appointed to a position at Princeton University. That’s not saying much for this “Ivy League” institution… or perhaps “institution is the right word and place for Vanny… maybe it is an asylum now.

      Isn’t this the same university that has Peter Singer on staff? The same bloodthirsty guy who is advocating more children than the leftwingwackos currently do?

  • TheKingJAK

    LOL @ some clown who hasn’t served a day in his life. Tell your garbage stories to the men who have done so, and still do, then try to lecture them about how they’re wrong with their support of the 2nd Amendment against tyranny (After all, they swore an Oath and they take it seriously).

  • lana ward

    It’s amazing, these people are always calling others EXACTLY what they themselves are. The whole clump of them are terrorists!!

    Communists like Van Jones are treasonous.
