By way of the political group Color of Change Mr. Jones is doing what he does best, â€œreclaiming revolution,â€ by pressuring â€œCelebrity Apprenticeâ€ cast members Lilâ€™ Jon and Star Jones to boycott Donald Trump.
â€œColor of Changeâ€ hopes to hammer Jones and Jon into submission by placing the duo between a racial rock and a hard place.Â According to the â€˜Changeâ€™ website, the group uses the Internet to enable its â€œmembers to speak in unison, with an amplified political voice,â€ keep informed about the â€œmost pressing issues for Black people in America â€¦ give them ways to act,â€Â and lobby â€œelected representatives using email, the telephone, and face-to-face meetings.â€
By way of a full-blown Twitter campaign, Van Jones and company are hoping to pound Lilâ€™ Jon and Star Jones into submission.Â The plan is to get the duo to denounce Trump because the media mogul dared to try to settle the â€œbirtherâ€ conversation by asking Obama to release a birth certificate as well as his college transcripts.
â€œColor of Changeâ€ twits who routinely target Breitbart and Beck tweeted messages such as the following:
A â€œColor of Changeâ€ spokesperson proudly stated: â€œThis is the first organized attempt to target these celebrities and demand that they, as prominent African-Americans, take a public stance against Donald Trumpâ€™s ongoing attacks against President Obama.â€
Accusing Trump of racism is what â€œColor of Changeâ€ considers â€œSpeaking in unison, with an amplified political voice.â€Â Even though Van Jones is no longer an official czar, itâ€™s apparent that he is still on the Barack Obama/Saul Alinsky bully-tactic payroll.Â Alinskyâ€™s â€œfourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is manâ€™s most potent weapon.Â It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.Â Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage,â€ and whatâ€™s more infuriating than calling a white man a racist and, in this case, black folk Uncle Donald?
In preparation for the coming campaign cycle, Marxist Jones has decided to use Alinsky tactics in hopes of an Obama trifecta.Â Van Jones is kicking off the â€œBring Race into the Presidential Campaignâ€ movement, the goal of which is to paint Obama opponents as racists and to pressure blacks into the uncomfortable position of either denouncing association with anyone other than Obama or suffering being ostracized from the black community.
Rashad Robinson, executive director of â€œColor of Changeâ€ said â€œWeâ€™ve gotten a lot of people tweeting.â€ Robinson explained that the goal is to send a message to Star Jones, Lilâ€™ Jon and other â€œCelebrity Apprenticeâ€ cast members that â€œthey canâ€™t have a relationship with the black community and â€¦a relationship with Trump and not call him out for his actions.â€
Trump, Lilâ€™ Jon, and Star Jones are now in the crosshairs.Â The original â€œCelebrity Apprentice,â€ Barack Obama, started the process by publicly bullying Trump at the White House Correspondence Dinner.Â Since then Obama has slickly passed the baton to Van Jones and his minions.Â The hope is that Trump, who in just a few months has demanded more accountability from Barack Obama than the entire Republican Party has in three years, will be destroyed and branded a racist, and Lilâ€™ Jon and Star Jones offered up as examples.
Up-date Star Jones was fired last night! However, she may still be asked to denounce Trump or suffer being ostracized.
