More than an activist

In response to: In Brief

It’s interesting to note what wasn’t said in the March 17 In Brief item on Van Jones. It says he is to become a visiting fellow and is called “an environmental activist.” It wasn’t mentioned that he also has been identified as a Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, Communist, anti-capitalist, and leader of STORM, an advocate of freeing the police officer murderer, Mumia Abu-Jamal. He has never denied any of these appellations. I wonder why they were not mentioned.
