The rally was led by a street slime who rose from a Communist, anti-police community organizer to an unconstitutional "czar" in the most Left-wing administration in Americas history -- Van Jones. From BizzyBlog and Gateway Pundit:
Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King reported recently at Big Government on a long lost video of Van Jones leading a rally in Oakland, California the day after 9-11 where they cheered the American killers.
BizzyBlog reported on this video back on September 8, 2009. But, Kristinn just recently captured some of Jones’ remarks at the rally. The video also shows one speaker praising the 9-11 attackers as heroes.
Disgusting… Yet this radical activist is still a hero on the left.

One of the racists in the video even called the hijackers who murdered 3,000 "heroes." (3.38)
Text of Van Jones remarks:
■“It’s the bombs that the government has been dropping around the world that are now blowing up inside the U.S. borders.”
■“We’ve got something stronger than bombs, we have solidarity. That dream of revolutionary change is stronger than bombs.”
That second item sounds a bit like someone who occupies the White House, doesn’t it?
No wonder Jones resigned just after midnight on Sunday, mere hours after Powerline spilled the beans about what Jones said at this event.
Also, at about the 3:05 mark, someone who may have been the inspiration for Obama pastor Jeremiah Wright’s sermon (at 2:10 through 2:45 of the video at the link) the next Sunday, talked of “chickens comin’ home to roost.” Imagine that.
Other video lowlights (statements made by others):
■(0:33) “…. use this time to show that we’re really upset about all the violence that is goin’ down not only in New York, but also the violence goin’ down around the world, and that the United States was founded on this kind of terrorism, and it still continues today.”
■(1:10) “We also want to be angry, and allow ourselves to feel that anger and that rage for those stolen lives. We want to also understand though, that those lives were lost because of our government’s inhumane foreign policy. And we should be angry, we should be p***ed off, that what our government does around rest of the world that leads us not to be safe here. That’s what we should be angry at ….”
■(4:10) “But when we knew what those places represented, we were kind of also glad that there’s a place called the Pentagon where, where, military strategies which have killed millions of people around the face of the world (unintelligible). We know, to see that place burnin’, there was some satisfaction to it.”
"Don't call them (the Islamic terrorists) cowards, they're heroes who died, and they're the people we need to support in these days, and the People of Color are rising..."Jones resigned his "czar" position in the middle of the night after it had been revealed he signed a 9/11 Troof petition.
These people complain about "racism" and "oppression," but when you think about it, they're the real racists. You hear it in their voices, and see it in the name of a group Jones founded "Color of Change" that currently attacks Glenn Beck, Fox News, etc. Any group that stresses "color" is, in my view, racist.
Even more recently, this racist group got Andrew Breitbart taken off the Huffington Toast blog for comments he made about Van Jones, calling him a "commie punk" and "a cop killer-supporting, racist, demagogic freak." I'd add one more to that list. How about "Islamic terrorist sympathizer Van Jones."
Did the Obama Regime, and Valerie Jarrett (who bragged about bringing his "talents" to the Regime) know of this when they brought him on?
And to the Huffington Toast, you pulled the plug on Andrew Breitbart for "uncivil talk," so do you think this video represents civil talk you'd be proud of? After all, this slime in the video is the same Van Jones who you defended.
