On June 20, 2012, former Green Jobs Czar for President Barack Obama and self-avowed Communist Van Jones wrapped up his Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington, D.C.
During Jones’ speech, those in attendance were asked to envision waking up in June 2013 under a Tea Party government and how “terrible” it would be living under it.
MRCTV’s Joe Schoffstall approached Van Jones after his speech and asked he thinks a “Tea Party government” would look like. Jones went on to say that the Tea Party philosophy of "wild, completely unregulated markets’" is wrong. He claimed they don’t understand history, are ignorant or don't tell the truth, and their ultimate goal is to destroy or smash down those tools that make America great.
