Van Jones Calls Alt-Right the ‘Dirty Right’: Play Dirty, Traffic in Racism and Violence

As CNN tonight talked about National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster coming under attack this week, Van Jones said it’s the “dirty right” that’s going after him.

Jones brought up how the alt-right is attacking McMaster, before saying, “I call it the dirty right because I think they play dirty.”

Jeffrey Lord laughed and Jones said he’s not talking about the entire right, just the crazies:

“You don’t even like these people yourself. So the dirty right that plays dirty, that traffics in racism––which you hate, Jeffrey––that traffics in violence––which you hate, Jeffrey… They don’t like McMaster because they know McMaster doesn’t like Steve Bannon. And they see Steve Bannon as one of their icons. So they started to gin up stuff.”

The addition of reported Russian bots going after McMaster, he added, is a “very dangerous” mix.
