Van Jones: The Black Left Loves to Protest, Not Sign Up Voters


CNN political commentator and former green jobs czar to President Barack Obama Van Jones reacted Saturday to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton being named the winner of the South Carolina Democratic primary over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), arguing that the black left is too busy protesting to sign up voters.

“This is not just a verdict, this defeat, and it may turn out to be an epic defeat for Bernie Sanders with the black vote. It’s not just a judgment on Bernie Sanders. It’s also a judgment on the black left. We often make the mistake of seeing the black vote is as monolithic. There is a left, a middle, and a right. And the black left came out and tried,” Jones stated. “The character of the black left is an anti-electoral left. It loves to protest. It does not love to sign up voters.”
