Speak Up About Van Jones

Reported by Ellen - September 9, 2009 -

Acclaimed filmmaker Robert Greenwald (with whom we are very proud to be affiliated) is as outraged and concerned as we are about the McCarthyesque witch hunt led by Glenn Beck at Fox News that led to the ouster of environmental activist Van Jones from the Obama administration. Greenwald writes: This weekend, an environmental justice hero resigned from the White House. Van Jones was the victim of a vicious smear campaign led by FOX News hatemonger Glenn Beck. Van's career as a voice for the poor is legendary, which is why Beck sought to destroy his career in the Obama administration. We can never allow this to happen again. FOX will continue its witch hunt. We must be prepared to speak out and fight back.

Watch Greenwald's video about the real Van Jones (after the jump) and speak up on Brave New Foundation's Facebook page to strategize about how to resist the right wing smear machine.

The video below is from Brave New Foundation's This Brave Nation series. Don't forget to go to Facebook afterword and speak up!
