Image: YouTube still

Want to know the real reason Van Jones was targeted by the noise machine?

Watch this speech he delivered in Philadelphia a couple of years ago explaining the philosophy of lifting people out of poverty by matching up America's fastest growing economic sector - the green economy - with those who need jobs most.

Powerful ideas draw powerful enemies. Pick it up at the 22:40 mark if you want to skip over a rather lengthy intro.

UPDATE: Arianna Huffington's take - Thank You, Glenn Beck.
