Obama's Green Jobs Czar a Truther
Van Jones has been in the news lately for his comment early this year that Republicans are a**holes. Turns out, the Vanster's also a 9-11 Truther (see signature #46 on the petition).
Hat Tip: The Good Lt. at JREF. Further coverage of this at the Jawa Report and at Gateway Pundit.
Update: Manny points out that Jones' initial take on 9-11 was pretty similar to Ward Churchill's:
Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), the revolutionary group formed by self-described "communist" and "rowdy black nationalist" Van Jones, held a vigil in Oakland, California, "mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world" on the night after Sept. 11, 2001.
However, this does not mean that he didn't become a "Truther" later; most of the more famous kooks--for example, Richard Gage, Eric Hufschmid, and even David Ray Griffin--weren't 0-day conspiracy theorists.
