According to former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, the Tea Party “is one of the most impressive citizen movements in the history of the country.”
Yeah, I did a double take on that one too. Although he described much of the criticism of the Tea Party as unfair, he went on to say that he believed the style and tone of the Tea Party has been offensive to women and minorities, even suggesting the grass roots movement had been chastised at the ballot box this election.
That being said, he also thinks that Democrats could work with the Tea Party? Not sure how that’s going to work, but take a look at the clip and draw your own conclusions.
If you haven’t had enough of Van Jones yet, watch him just a few months back calling Tea Party activists insane hostage takers who want to destroy America. Yep, he said it.
