Van Jones: If Trump Is Going to Profile Muslims for Mass Shootings, Should Profile ‘Young White Men’ Too

CNN contributor Van Jones responded to Trump’s call for racially profiling with a few pointed statements condemning the new plan. In a Sunday interview, Trump laid out his plan for racially profiling in order to prevent further attacks against the United States

“Well I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country. Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads,” said Trump, in an interview with CBS news.

Jones pointed out this afternoon that Muslims are not the primary perpetrators of mass shootings:

“I just think it’s really interesting that we’re talking about racially profiling in the context of mass shootings,’ he said. “The vast majority of the people who are doing the mass shootings in America aren’t Muslims at all.”

“Young white men,” CNN host Brooke Baldwin said.

“You are seven times more likely to be killed by a right wing extremist — a racist or an anti-government nutjob — seven times more likely than a Muslim,” Jones added.

Van Jones is being ridiculous. But then he always has been so.

Profiling = Common sense.

And his statistics are nothing but tools of manipulators of media and culture.

Van Jones = ends justify the means.

His Bay Area Manifesto was titled, "...By any means", after all.

Oh my good God, this slime-bag, needs to look at who is doing it... They are all Islamic Muslims!  The word this imp should learn is M-U-S-L-I-M ... Muslims are the ones doing the deed.  Muslims and Muslims alone are the biggest internal threat to the United States. (not including Obama and his ideologies)

Young white men that adopt the Islamist ideology should indeed be profiled.

Why is this communist a contributor on cnn ? What could he contribute to a news program, more hate ?

"Why is this communist a contributor on CNN ?"  You are kidding... Why is Van Jones, a card carrying Communist, on the Communist News Network (CNN)?  CNN operates so far left of center that they are the De-facto propaganda arm of the Communist. 

Van Jones, a Communist telling a brave American how to do the job of a Real President of a large Company making Billions. When a fool speaks like Van Jones we should all just laugh and turn him off. This is the same man rewriting our school history books. Van Jones should be deported for treason.

Is it just me, or does Van Jones' head above his eyes look smaller than the part below the eyes? You know, the talking part. 

That is an interesting observation.

I guess Jones doesn't consider the shootings in Chicago as " Mass Shootings "!

This was Obama's communist advisor except he was too radical too early in the Obama administration....

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
