Van Jones: ‘Sometimes Liberals Are Too Knock-Kneed About Standing Up’ to Islamic Fundamentalism

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Messy Truth with Van Jones,” host Van Jones argued that “sometimes liberals are too knock-kneed” about standing up to Islamic fundamentalism.

Jones said to his guest, HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher, “[Y]ou and I actually agree a lot on the need to be tough on these fundamentalists. And I think that sometimes liberals are too knock-kneed about standing up. And at the same time, I think even somebody who is very concerned about the bad part of Islam has to be excited about the good part of Islam.”
