    A new video has surfaced showing President Obama's green jobs adviser suggesting that only white students commit mass school killings like Columbine as Republicans renew criticisms of the large number of so-called "czars" in the White House.

    Van Jones, the founder of Green for All, which focuses on creating environmentally friendly jobs in poor areas, has come under withering attacks in recent days following revelations that he called Republicans "assholes" and that he once signed a petition supporting the "9/11 truther" movement, which claims that the the Bush administration allowed the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to happen.

    In the latest video to surface, Jones is seen in December 2005 making controversial statements on the racial differences in school violence.

    "You've never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never," he said. "They always say, 'We can't believe it happened here. We can't believe it was these suburban white kids.' It's only them. Now a black kid might shoot another black kid

    GOP is a non-party right now.

    Why should anyone care what they think?

    Why don't you tell me what about these "czars" is un-constitutional? And if it's such a big deal, why wasn't anyone complaining when Bush II made 26 of them?

    Notice how all of a sudden the party that's supported a strong executive doesn't like it so much now?

    Seriously, Is there anything the GOP doesn't criticize?

    Can someone point to one thing Obama has done that the GOP supported?
