Is Van Jones Saying the Tea Party Doesn’t Believe in Justice?


In another video from the Power Shift 2011 conference, former White House green jobs czar proclaimed that he loved tea partiers and liberty, but didn't understand their apparent distaste for justice.

Also playing to the young audience, Jones proclaimed that "DC is stuck on stupid," but young generations "are rising."  He also encouraged activists to explain that the climate movement isn't just about "hippie power," but that it is a vision of liberty and justice for all.

"Shift the power!" he concluded.


As I noted on the blog earlier today, Eyeblast's Stephen Gutowski has posted a number of videos from the weekend conference, including Obama EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson who praised the progressive audience for combining the movement for social justice with "environmental justice."
