CNN’s Van Jones is no stranger to the hatred and vitriol that comes with not falling in line with leftist groupthink. He’s been a breath of fresh air at times, willing to stand up against the tide of liberal insanity that has gripped the network. But his comments on the possible prosecution of Donald Trump by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg have sent the liberal outrage machine into overdrive, with some going so far as to call him a race traitor.
Here's the Position Van Jones Took on Trump's Possible Indictment. It Enraged the Left. https://t.co/xUgjydXwHk

Jones had the temerity to suggest that Bragg might not bring charges against Trump, reminding viewers that overcharging and aggressive prosecution happens every day in America. Of course, the leftist mob didn’t want to hear that. They want Trump put behind bars, no matter how flimsy the charges against him might be.
Fascinating commentary/activism from CNN:
Van Jones on Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg: "I think that the heat is on this DA. I think he's going to make a very sober decision and I would not be surprised if he doesn't step back from the brink." https://t.co/qaRRA5b4cq pic.twitter.com/XQUpg3lZWf

It’s a stunning display of the left’s dogmatic commitment to their cause. They’ve been so thoroughly brainwashed into believing that Trump is the devil incarnate that they can’t fathom anyone not being completely on board with the idea of locking him up. And when someone like Jones dares to speak out against this hysteria, he’s immediately labeled an Uncle Tom.
It’s yet another reminder that the left is not interested in a discussion of ideas. They’re only interested in conformity. If you don’t toe the party line, you’ll be cast out with the rest of the heretics. But Jones isn’t backing down. He’s not going to let the mob intimidate him into silence. He knows that true diversity of thought is what we need more of in this country, not less. And for that, we should all be grateful.
