Two years after he resigned from his post as White House Green Jobs Czar partly due to feigned outrage from TV personality Glen Beck, Van Jones has had enough. Despite stepping down years ago, Beck has continued his tirade against Jones, calling him a “communist” and suggesting that Jones is a radical.

Fed up by Beck’s constant attacks, Jones’ lawyers sent Beck and Fox News a cease and desist letter stating that Beck has engaged in “a series of sensational and inflammatory charges” that Jones claims are “demonstrably, unequivocally and absolutely false.”

Jones, who has kept silent about Beck’s attacks over the past two years, recently attempted to settle the matter quietly with Beck’s producers, but apparently, Beck continued the attacks.

“I thought that FOX TV or Beck’s producers would take note of the facts and rein him in, without me having to take legal action. They didn’t,” Jones tells HuffPo. “Then [Rep.] Gabby Giffords was shot. I talked directly to Beck’s producer for about an hour, setting the record straight. We had a friendly conversation. But rather than stopping his smear campaign, Beck chose to double down on the crazy. I was shocked.”

Recently, Jones took to the Ed Shultz show to express his frustration regarding Beck’s attacks. Jones said Beck was “like a stalker” and never let up on his relentless attacks.

Despite his resignation from the Obama administration Jones has continued to fight for American workers. It’s good to know that bullies don’t always win, and Beck—whose show will be ending in a week—can’t stop people from working toward a brighter future.

    Beck secretly wishes he was half the man Van Jones is.

    We all have our levels and Van Jones has reached his. Fox News anchors are all bullies.

      Cosign except what Faux News reports isn’t news, but lies made up to serve the republican agenda

  • Glen Beck is a great patriot…Van Jones needs to die and be born again into a decent human being.

      I know this is an old story, but its too bad that now there is more than ample evidence that Beck’s assertions were all entirely correct. ANTHONY Jones (Van is a made up name) is an avowed communist, attacked Libertarians without clearly even knowing what their beliefs are, dodges direct questions about his own failures (who learned from who on that one, Obama or Jones?), and has openly attacked people’s right to free speech that disagree with him. These are all facts, easily verifiable, so if you continue to think ANTHONY Jones is a great guy then you are beyond reason and hope.
