GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman gushed with praise for Truther/Marxist/race-hustler Van Jones and his “climate change” work in May:

She met him at a liberal Aspen Institute event. “I got to know him really well. A lot of the work he’s doing to enfranchise broader communities. I’m a big fan of…I’m a huge fan of his. Very bright. Very articulate. I think he’s exactly right.”

Ooops.

Now, she’s disavowing him — telling the Weekly Standard that “of course I did not do a background check of his past over dinner.”

Lame.

She mindlessly name-dropped Van Jones, climate change snake oil salemsan, to try and bolster her eco-credentials — and ended up endorsing a left-wing nutball in green clothing.

Teachable moment.

Fun fact: Van Jones is an ardent follower of Amilcar Cabral, the late Marxist revolutionary of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands, who lauded Lenin “as the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples.” In 2006, Van Jones named his newborn son “Cabral” in the Marxist leader’s honor.
