A Socialist gets a great honor from US.........

President Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday to Dolores Huerta, an 82-year-old labor activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union.
Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.
DSA describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.”
Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela. 
If you'd like to, you can here more of her HERE......she's quite the radical.   Does Obama think we won't notice?  Or care?

Do we need much more proof that Mr. Obama leans a little further left than even some Democrats would like?    Did this get the coverage the awards to Bob Dylan, John Glenn and Madeleine Albright got?   The only place I've seen this Huerta award is through a Conservative blog sent to me by Elmer's Brother.    



Think CNN will feature this one?

Shush! It's a secret! We're not supposed to know! We're not supposed to notice that the far left has absconded with what used to be the Democratic party. We're just to go right on thinking that these people are the spiritual heirs of Jefferson.

NOT!

FairWitness said...

Man.... How, in God's name, did the decision to give this award, to an avowed socialist, happen? Who, in the White House, thought this was a good idea with the President running for reelection in the United States of America? President Obama is either resigned to defeat or completely clueless. After he loses his reelection bid, I wonder what his final days in office will bring us.

WE?

Many of us were well aware of it. Can you point to something in the woman's background that you find objectionable?
Or maybe you feel that farm workers should have been out in the fields for .50 an hour so that your food bills wouldn't be too high?

These people Showing a little bigotry there viburnum?

But Dolores Huerta has received a number of awards through the years. Good on Obama for this one.

Long may she run. The struggle is eternal.

Joe said...

CNN will NOT mention this. Neither will most of the other networks.

It's not news!

President BO (the child president) is a socialist. Everybody knows it, even the liberal deniers.

Ergo it is expected that he would appoint and honor as many socialists as he can get away with...which seems limitless.

Thersites said...

Move along folks, there's nothing new here...

On September 8, 1994, Chávez was presented, posthumously, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton. The award was received by his widow, Helen Chávez.

The Commie/Union/Democrat connection has been with us for nearly 150 years....

Always On Watch said...

Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Surprise! NOT!

How much more of this will America take?

Silverfiddle said...

Why wouldn't he give her a medal? There's not a dime's worth of difference between them, except she's more accomplished than he is.

Liberalmann said...

Only hypocritical, so called Christian wingnuts could demonize someone who has spent a lifetime of sacrifice helping the poor and indigent. Jesus would be real proud.

"Can you point to something in the woman's background that you find objectionable"


"Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela"

Speedy G said...

I hate to admit that I like many of the things that Hugo Chavez has done in Venezuela, too... but then its' not "what" he's done in Venezuela so much as "how he did it" that I find objectionable.

Sam Huntington said...

We have too many “medals” these days. There was a time when a simple phrase “mentioned in dispatches” was sufficient to denote extraordinary valor or service. Now, everyone and their mother get’s an award for doing their job. The Presidential Medal of Freedom means absolutely nothing when awarded for being a television clown or a drama queen. No surprise Maya Angelou was honored by Barack Obama. I personally enjoy listening to Bob Dylan, but medal of freedom? Really? And Alan Greenspan? Warren Buffett? Katherine Graham? So no, it does not surprise me that a socialist should receive this Wal-mart level award.

Lisa said...

He's a good actor like Obama. Outsiders like him more than his own people do.

Z said...

Viburnum...Jefferson would be rolling in his grave.



Ducky, you misunderstood Viburnum's comment and posted...tsk tsk
Also, could you please read the post again? Do you really think getting farmworkers a break is what bugs me? :-) But, you play bait and switch and think it works...
I keep forgetting that there are people who DO champion socialism so I'm not at all surprised she's a hero of yours.

FW...Clueless..has to be.

Joe, that's MY biggest beef. I was flipping channels last night and the LA news did mention this. No mention of her positions in Socialist America, however.. just how she's worked her whole life for "Social Justice". I think some libs don't understand what that's come to mean.

Thersites, I was pretty sure only Americans could get the MEdal of Freedom.

SF, good point.

Liber...talk about a WINGNUT. I can't speak for Jesus, incredible that you do. But I do know that there isn't anybody here who wouldn't help the poor or indigent.
Do you READ THE POSTS? SOME of us aren't SOCIALISTS...get used to it.

AOW...I think Americans wouldn't take much if they knew the truth.
Imagine if anybody in that presentation room knew she was involved so in the socialist movement? The gasp?

Speedy...odd. My stepdaughter spends tons of time there and has yet to find one Venezuelan who likes Chavez at ALL...rich and poor. And she has to be very careful how she asks, too.

SAM...I know something second hand about Maya Angelou that makes ALL of her protestations of helping the poor NEGATED. Let's just say Jackie Kennedy's clean sheets every day have nothing on Maya. TRUST ME.

Lisa..who?

Sam Huntington said...

Now here’s a news flash you don’t see every day: Liberal Idiot is now a spokesperson for Jesus of Nazareth.

Wow … and you saw it here at Geeez!

Z said...

i'm so proud


:-)

Lisa said...

Chavez sorry Z

Lisa said...

I agree medals are given out so freely they are almost meaningless. Just look at our Nobel Peace Prize Winner who escalated the drone program and now has the say-so as to who can be killed without due process.

Z said...

Lisa, you can't mean that DUE PROCESS that the left kept screaming about when Bush did anything close to what Obama's doing, CAN YOU? :=)


reChavez
My stepdaughter came back the first time from Venezuela telling me
that her colleagues can't stand the man and he's ruining their businesses, fine hotels are closing, etc. (which will probably happen here once Obama's finished screwing the rich, of course..) etc., and I told her that was understandable because they're working hard and don't like socialism....so I asked her to carefully ask taxi drivers or waitresses (Mr Z was a little worried because he'd done a lot of bus. there and knows what the atmosphere's like)...I did say "carefully" and she's bright!...they ALL can't stand him.
Where he gets those red-shirted fans is beyond me$$$$ Although we all know those who do not work will rally around a loser who wants to do harm to those who do.

Lisa said...

Yes Z I remember you telling us about your stepdaughter. It's amazing how easily people can be manipulated like our red shirt Acorn nuts here.
It really is remarkable how Obama has Carte Blanche.
No radicals tied to him but the Tea Party who want smaller responsible government are painted out to be extremists.
Th best we can do is keep educating the masses from the brainwashing and the lies they have undergone the last 4 years.

Bob said...

Yeah. I got sick when I saw this one. It is an obvious pitch for Hispanic votes. We haven't seen the end of this, yet.

conservativesonfire said...

Z, i have lived in Venezuela for the last twenty years. Your stepdaughter is right when she says Chavez has ruined the country. However, she is wrong when she says everyone here hates Chavez. He polls 54 to 56% favorable and if he survives his cancer long enough, he will be reelected in October. The poor will bend your ear for hours complaining about the government. But I rarely hear tem say a bad word about Chavez. Most think he is a saint. They believe it is the corrupt people around him that are at fault for all our problems.
There is a high probability that Chavez will not live long enough to win the election. This, however, does not mean that the opposition will win. PSUV, the party of the chavistas will fracture into pieces upon the death of Chavez. Sadly, I do not expect to see a peacful transition. The military, now tens times more corrupt than before Chavez, will have their candidate and the Cubans and the die hard Marxist will have theirs.
I hope I am wrong, but I don't see peace in near term for Venezuela.

Law and Order Teacher said...

Z,
These awards are a joke. It's an opportunity to get the Prez a photo op and bask in the reflected glory of those he chooses to honor. They've, for the most part, become on a par with having sports teams visit. The only difference is that BO doesn't get a nifty jersey with his name on it. Neato!

BTW, I stand second to no one in my admiration for John Glenn, but how many awards does he get? I realize he's a good Dem, but sheesh!

Leticia said...

Republicans hate Latinos? What a bunch of rubbish, since I am a Latina and so are my sisters and we are Conservative Republicans that do not favor socialism or illegal immigration.

I can't believe that ridiculous woman got an award, but then again, Obama got a Pulitzer for doing absolutely nothing, so what do you expect.

Right Truth said...

It is the "Presidential" Medal, so I suppose he can pick those he likes. I think Bob Dylan was the big question mark. He looked miserable sitting there.

Ducky: " 'These people ' Showing a little bigotry there viburnum?"

Shouldn't post before your second cup of coffee Ducky. I was referring to the Democrats

Wow! You actually said this after what the tea party has done to the right? LOL, dude, that's priceless!

And Lisa....whaaa? Lol!

Elmers Brother said...

Liberalman, the Frankfurt school of Communism made one of its goals the taking over of one of our political parties. Look up Cultural Marxism you'll be staring yourself in the mirror. Also 40% of tea party members are dems/independents.

Z said...

Elbro, plus, I can't tell you how many Democrat acquaintances I have who feel the Dems are FAR too left...and who aren't voting for Obama.
Even here in LA, there's a new bumper sticker springing up all over the place that shows Obama's Pepsi logo with a line through it...under, it says OMG.....and it says in small print OBAMA MUST GO.

I keep hearing people say "My daughter voted for Obama, but she isn't this time.."
I honestly didn't think people were paying attention, but it appears they are. And we know VERY WELL it goes against the stream not to be COOL AND LEFT so I'm thinking a LOT of people won't feel quite so subjected to Democrat PC when that curtain's pulled behind them in the voting booth and NOBODY KNOWS who they voted for.

Bunkerville said...

You and I are on the same page today. Posts are few and far between about this. He admitted that he got his slogan from her, so I gather he is "in touch" with her.

Z said...

Talk about Democrats moving from their party? WAIT till you see the information I've got in tomorrow's post :-) I AM SO HAPPY!


Bunk, I'll come right by! xx

viburnum said...

@Lib-Mann

What the tea party has hopefully done FOR the Republicans, is hold their feet to the fire and remind them what they stand for.

Z said...

V...it's also awakened a lot of people to what's going on. Lots of Dems and Indies in the TP and some black leaders, which I find FABULOUS

Liberalmann said...

Elmers Brother said..."Liberalman, the Frankfurt school of Communism made one of its goals the taking over of one of our political parties."

Wow! Some of these posts are just priceless! Lol!

Z said...

Libman, learning IS priceless. You can do a lot of that here. Now you're catching on.

Elmers Brother said...

So you don't have a clue do you Libman, never heard of cultural Marxism? Don't gave a reasonable explanation as to why I'm wrong?

or here?

Right Wing Theocrat said...

Medal of freedom to a socialist! I guess the fool doesn't even understand what freedom means.

Why would he I suppose, he enjoys and occasionally craps all over the freedom that others fought for and bequeathed to him.
