(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) In an appearance on CNN, Democrat strategist Van Jones, who briefly served as President Obama’s “Green Jobs” czar, has issued his second major warning to Democrats about their ability to retain the automatic support of black voters.
Back in June, Jones took Democrats to task for their “weird” obsession with ultra-woke, alienating language.
“LatinX, I’ve never met a LatinX, I’ve never met a BIPOC, I’ve never met . . . all this weird stuff that these highly-educated people say,” Jones told a pair of stunned CNN anchors.
“It’s bizarre — nobody talks that way at the barbershop, the nail salon, the grocery store.”
In a similar appearance last week, Jones accused President Joe Biden of causing black voters to undergo a “summer of real heartbreak” as they watch the man they put in office send their hard-earned taxpayer money down the Ukrainian toilet.
“I think for African-American voters, in particular, there is a special heartbreak because, first of all, the pain is more intense,” Jones said.
“The rising gas prices, food prices, it has really walloped the black community in a particular way, but the hopes were so much higher.”
In particular, Jones criticized the White House’s inability to communicate properly with black voters regarding the millions upon millions that Biden has spent and the numerous diversity hires he’s made to retain their votes.
“If I were the Democratic Party now, the black community is a firewall, they need to be spending a lot of money on black radio, a lot of money on black media to just point out the fact that Joe Biden is there for the black community and is doing stuff,” Jones said.
Unless Democrats get their messaging back on track, Jones warned, the party is in danger of losing its “paper-thin majority.”
Jones, however, observed a blessing in disguise in Biden’s hapless efforts to shore up Congress, as he suggested that a Republican takeover of Congress would allow a scaremongering, anti-white Democrat party to frighten blacks back to the polls in 2024.
“If you start seeing the Republican Party putting up bills that are against affirmative action, putting up bills that might hurt immigrants, bills that might go back toward mass incarceration, that should shock black voters,” Jones said. “That lets [Biden] begin to reset a narrative.”
