The Washington Post reported:
At last weekend’s Netroots Nation gathering in Minneapolis, liberal activists expressed frustration that they lacked the political power or media focus given to the conservative tea-party movement. Former White House environmental official Van Jones is hoping to change that with a new political effort dubbed “The American Dream Movement.”
Organizers are hoping to emulate the the success of the tea party, which became a significant force in the 2010 midterms, uniting like-minded people across the country who were previously uninvolved in politics or participating locally but not at the national level.
They hope to motivate unemployed veterans, struggling homeowners and other alienated Americans who are angry at Republicans’ desire to drastically cut government spending in Washington and collective bargaining rights for state employees in places like Wisconsin. And to lure those people simply struggling to find a job while worried about their unemployment benefits ending.
“We think we can do what the tea party did,” Jones said in an interview with The Fix. “They stepped forward under a common banner, and everybody took them seriously. Polls suggest there are more people out there who have a different view of the economy, but who have not stepped forward yet under a common banner.”
Jones is a former Obama environmental adviser who resigned from the White House in 2009 amid controversy over his past activism. But he’s lauded in liberal circles for his charisma and organizing abilities.

What else could be expected, that the Liberals, Socialists, Progressive Fascists, Marxists and Communists that make up what is referred to as the DEMOCRATIC party are unable to come up with any originality of there own so they want to emulate the TEA PARTY! That will be a dismal failure as eventually are all their endeavors!
The movement should be called “The Russian Dream Movement”. The hypocrite has done very well under American Capitalism. In a totalitarian state (which he wants) he’d be cleaning out sewers!.
He needs a job now. That is why he “called-out” Beck. Soon he will be living in a low rent apartment where he belongs. Someone please ask him his LSAT score and his GPA. Why was he accepted to Yale Law School?
Yecch. So Van “I’m-Not-A-Communist” Jones hopes to emulate the genuine grassroots movement of the Tea Party with whatever he and the rest of the leftist wackos can conjure up…good luck with that.
You know it and I know it, but I have to say it: This is no “American Dream” movement, it’s a “Globalist Utopian Dream” movement bent on destroying this very nation. God help us all.
Oh great, here we go with another liberal “dream”. Never forget, liberals’ dreams are nightmares for everyone else.
In ALL cases there is a mass grave at the end of every leftwing rainbow. There are no exceptions. The history books are full of such examples.
Socialist Tea Party? So is it to be one where they wish to give back America to the British or where we throw them into the ocean along with the tea?
