CNN’s Van Jones, a left-winger who believes in treating his ideological opponents like humans, has been facing backlash from the far-left for that very offense.

He’s among a number of non-far-leftist black people, including black conservative Sage Steele, who’re currently being targeted for not being subservient enough to the Democrat Party’s agenda.

As far as far-leftists are concerned, lack of allegiance to Democrats means a black person isn’t “black enough.” It’s a sentiment that fits in perfectly with then-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s assertion last year that any black American who doesn’t vote for him “ain’t black.”

But not every critic who spouts this sort of rhetoric is black themselves. Take Don Winslow, a radically far-left white fiction author. Last year, he called Sen. Tim Scott and rappers Kanye West and Ice Cube “fake a** sell outs” for their own lack of allegiance to the Democrat Party.

A year later, he’s now taken a shot at Jones by posting two photos of Jones hobnobbing with conservatives as if they’re human beings.

Look (*Language warning):

While Winslow included no captions with the photos, the hateful responses from his followers spoke volumes.

Here’s a sample:

Take note of the white woman, Sheila (@SheliaMarie67), who shamelessly smeared Jones as an “Uncle Tom.” If Winslow were a woman, he’d likely be Sheila.

Critics say this is exactly the response Winslow had sought because the responses are a perfect reflection of his own inner thoughts.

His tweets provoked an especially fierce response from conservative commentator Stephen L. Miller, who noted that it’s becoming commonplace for white liberals to attack, shame and smear black people who don’t abide by the Democrat agenda.

Look:

His observations were correct. Black people who refuse to abide by the demands of the left face incessant ridicule and shame — though not only from white leftists but also from black leftists who also think all black people are obliged to think the same.

It doesn’t even matter if the dissenting black person isn’t remotely conservative. Take Kyrie Irving, an NBA star known for his left-wing “social justice activism” and support for the radical Black Lives Matter movement. Because he’s currently refusing to take the coronavirus vaccine, even he has been reduced to an “Uncle Tom.”

Look:

There’s no logic to the hate. The only undergirding principle appears to be that blacks are obliged to follow the pack, meaning they must obtain the coronavirus vaccine, they must vote for Democrats and they must not hobnob with conservatives.

If this mindset were just relegated to Twitter, it’d be bad enough. But this mindset is, in fact, prominent in the establishment press, especially on CNN and MSNBC.

Just this week, radically far-left MSNBC host Tiffany Cross, a black woman, accused Jones, Steele and Ozy Media founder Carlos Watson of not being legitimate “black voices” because their views don’t perfectly mirror her own.

After all, in Cross’s opinion, SHE is the “keeper of the culture,” whatever that means.
