St. Louis blogger Adam Sharp has posted a series of videos from Van Jones' recent talk at Washington University. The most exciting clip was when they decided to toss Adam out of the event! But his subsequent posts have been revealing on a number of fronts, including Jones comparing Fox News to Satan.
Today Sharp Elbows adds one more clip into the mix. Many of you have followed Glenn Beck's analysis of how desperate progressives will begin to drive wedges in this country that may trigger the kind of trouble we've watching unfold across Europe. It seems Van Jones is now predicting just that. Jones is unwavering that the U.S. is "going to go into a tough period." A "potential nightmare scenario" he calls it.
Jones sees two trends. A country that is growing more diverse. And one that he is certain is going to be "less and less economically prosperous." He repeats his forecast. Makes you wonder -- what intel does he have that he can be so confident of American economic demise?
These trends, says Jones pointing us to history, make up a recipe: "That is not a recipe for common ground, that's a recipe for a battleground."
Sharp entitles his video with a question: Is Van Jones Predicting a Civil War?
