CNN Political Commentator Van Jones expressed that many Jewish Americans feel unsupported by the progressive movement but do feel supported by President Joe Biden.

He criticized college presidents for mishandling students involved in conflicts related to Iran, emphasizing the need for education on longstanding conflicts and distinguishing between freedom fighters like Nelson Mandela and groups like Hamas.

Jones also noted that working-class men of color and Muslims are potentially distancing themselves from the Democratic Party, with concerns about support from progressives and Biden’s stance on Palestinian issues. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)

“Sheryl Sandberg and other people went to the United Nations and said rape is not resistance. And we’ve got to make sure that — we’ve got a whole generation of young people who, they don’t understand some of these longstanding conflicts and the idea that Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter,” Jones said.

“He never raped anybody. He never kidnapped anybody’s grandmother.”

“If he used weapons, he went after soldiers and infrastructure. Those are freedom fighters. Hamas is not.”

“We have a responsibility to say to this next generation, you may not know, but you’re getting pimped and used by Iran on some of this stuff.”

“Now, I hope those college presidents are more effective at addressing their young people on their campus than they were with Congress. But if they’re not, somebody needs to.”

“I think there are three groups that are possibly heading for the exits right now. Hopefully, they’ll come back.”

“You do have, I think, working-class men of color are increasingly feeling despondent and moving away from the party. I think a lot of Jewish Americans feel unsupported, they feel supported by Biden’s stand, but don’t feel as supported by the rest of the progressive movement.”

“But at the same time, you have Muslims who feel that Biden has been too lacking in sympathy for what’s happening to the Palestinians.”
