-- -- remember Van Jones -- president Obama's former green jobs SARS in the headlines again for controversial speech.
That he gave in Berkeley on Wednesday and I know we told the crowd that he's happy that the president won a second term.
But his quote overjoyed that the backlash is lost saying we just want -- tremendous victory because.
We didn't -- down buckle down and hand the country over the worst people ever born.
And -- compared Republicans to people stand on a beach during a tsunami.
Watching other people drowned.
Who's dating back.
-- Don't know roll it back what he drove through the road.
But I all of the big huge.
-- okay humility.
-- -- -- -- -- Didn't we didn't get -- life -- just.
All of the president's opponent but the bare -- -- -- yeah.
Joining me now democratic strategist penny Lee and radio talk show host Monica Crowley all right you know you know -- penny.
He usually is a period of governance after an election.
Now with your -- out.
But this since then you go after Susan Rice -- racists -- hate women.
And of course the class warfare card the presence out on the campaign trail.
As he now tries to push the country over the fiscal -- and then -- now report.
-- are evil evil evil evil evil evil.
And people like you I don't hear -- speaking out saying the president knock it off.
This is not good for the country you're dividing the country where are your voice -- what your pal Ed Rendell.
Well I am not -- the same thing you are I don't hear the president call.
Republicans evil evil evil I don't hear that kind of hate filled speech she -- out there from the from the White House know.
I see the president actually trying to reach -- cracker -- camera -- they -- Republicans have a war on women.
Joseph Biden said they're gonna -- -- all back and change we've had the race car the war on women card.
The class Maryland -- all the way to take seemingly can't -- that it can get.
And you can take a lot of -- -- and Mitt Romney -- there -- -- corporations are people he doesn't really care about the very -- Only 47% of America she is gonna disavow him because you only -- -- -- -- -- guys in there is one that they know presidency well I'm not -- you can only nominate both sides of republic yes you give me an example that play the race card this year and one example.
There's been many times and they want an -- both -- it would.
When both sides -- game both -- had a glass he wanted type of class warfare yeah Connie said what Mitt Romney settlements racist percent.
Heat race I say I didn't call it race -- me an example not tolerate this gimme my eyes as that there is giving me that -- -- -- I'll then -- IB home -- -- me one example.
John what I am saying is that there -- speech out there that it that is being taken out of context and it isn't helpful but I agree I'm -- the -- United States calling Republicans eve.
Okay we'll remember that the president of the United States who is supposed to represent all of the people once he's elected referred to his political opponents because that's you -- the worst people ever born according to Van Jones.
As enemies a few days before the election he said vote for quote revenge.
What of -- top White House advisors Valerie Jarrett also used the word revenge after the election.
This is the -- this is how they think Van Jones was quoted as saying in this is a self avowed Communist by the way.
Sean talking about overthrowing the free market system in America and more broadly in the west he said and I quote.
We're gonna change the whole system we need a new system what do you think he means what it.
Let me show another cut from the same speech -- refers to conservatives Republicans as treasonous process.
The president was -- Let the bodies -- up what -- -- -- You.
Yeah -- better.
How did she actually.
-- even -- true.
Treacherous -- And it's let the bodies pile up on the beach all lies but this propaganda.
Of the left continues why you have to -- Van Jones because at least he's honest at least he is giving voice to how the left really does you conservatives and I would run that out and say.
Normal Americans who left their country.
At least he's being honest in characterizing them because most -- won't be that honest they think that way but they won't be that honest look this couple left thinks this is how they behavior sometimes -- dress it up more than more than other times like Van Jones but the bottom line is that -- -- in the fundamental transformation of of the nation.
In van jones' case that means characterizing the left.
A -- characterizing conservatives who instantly believed by the way Sean in fiscal responsibility the constitution individual freedom economic freedom.
I can see why guys like van Jones and the president think those are -- radical ideas you know but this is who they are.
We're not gonna save the country when -- -- to balance the budget until your side can't sit out.
And if people like you I think it -- I think your reasonable person.
But you feel -- compulsion to come on this program and defense.
Treasonous treacherous treacherous.
They let the body -- -- outline on the video is one man -- can speaking does not speak for the entire left.
He does not speak for the entire -- -- -- -- is one.
-- I I applaud his passion and and is laden look at number hauling the tree and equality and social justice.
I applaud that -- he eat he uses all the word I would use no but he has fought tirelessly -- -- -- quality dodging.
In this with the country's never gonna get out of this battle until people like you starts beacon -- -- we gotta go thank you.
