Obama Honors Socialist Leader at White House – Admits He Stole Her “Yes We Can” Slogan (Video)
The Gateway Pundit ^ | May 29, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/29/2012 8:26:35 PM PDT by CitizenM

Barack Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dolores Huerta, an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. During the ceremony today President Obama admitted he stole her slogan “Yes we can!” for his 2008 campaign. (Video at link)

---snip---

...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.

The Medal of Freedom is awarded to individuals who have made “especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.

---snip---

And on a personal note, Dolores was very gracious when I told her I had stolen her slogan, “Si, se puede.” Yes, we can. (Laughter.) Knowing her, I’m pleased that she let me off easy — (laughter) — because Dolores does not play. (Laughter.)

“Republicans hate Latinos,”

Let us be "optimists" and "moderates" and tolerate this extreme and evil mongering. We peasant are disposable trash after all, much not different than the Chinese, Politicaly Correctly speaking. (sarc off)

Ah, of course, nothing like a gay person to say they are hated by heterosexual so as to impose their agenda and control on other gays who would perhaps reconsider. It's not like the gay flag is not tyrannical and wants to prevent heterosexuals from having their peace... nah, sure....

What is the point of Obama killing Bin Laden when such genocider is coming to the Whitehouse, trying to concoct a world abortion genocide system and continued economic abuse. She has the guts to be like Che Gevara, to come out of the closet and kill before the killing is mainstreamized.

Okay,- - - let me get this straight - - - .

Incumbent Marxist Dictator Obama gave The Medal Of Freedom to someone who is a BIGOT?

Who is also guilty of the Federal Crime of Racial Profiling?

You may doubt that Obama did this but how else can one describe someone who said “ - - - “Republicans hate Latinos,” - - - ?

BTW, Maybe the message Obama is sending is that if you hate people in America then Obama will give you a medal too?

WOW! Obama has given us the freedom to hate!

WOW! Soon we will be just like Europe with pockets of hate springing up everywhere!

The more you hate me,
The more I hate you.
Bring on the Drones,
Bring lots of Drones - - - .

In April 2006, Huerta was invited to speak at Tucson High Magnet School in Arizona, ostensibly “to inspire students” who were preparing for crucial examinations. During her speech, she exhorted the youngsters to march in protest of federal lawmakers’ efforts to put an end to illegal immigration, and twice stated that “Republicans hate Latinos.” At the same event, Huerta said:

“The average pay of a CEO of a Fortune 500 company is three million to nine million dollars a year. What are you going to do with all that money, right? I don’t care how much money you make. You can only eat three meals a day, you know. You can only wear one suit of clothes a day, you know. So the idea, a lot isn’t wrong so long as you use it for the people like what Hugo Chavez is doing in Venezuela.”

Responding to critics of illegal immigration, Huerta says: “We didn’t cross the [U.S.-Mexico] border; the border crossed us.” Huerta has told illegal-alien farmoworkers, “You deserve to get paid every dollar you earn and have safe housing and transportation.” Moreover, she has advised illegals who feel they have been underpaid, to call the U.S. Department of Labor. “The call is free and confidential,” she assured.

While the fledging CSO was working to organize laborers and lobby for welfare payments to migrants, the Filipino grape-pickers of the San Joaquin Valley went on strike. Huerta and Chavez joined with what eventually became known as the five-year Delano Grape Strike. As Huerta negotiated with the wine-growers, she picked up the nickname “Dragon Lady.”

Huerta has acknowledged that when she was a young woman, her busy activist career caused her to be an absentee mother who ignored her parental responsibilities while she pursued Marxist causes.

Driven by a belief that true democracy can only be achieved through a redistribution of wealth, Huerta has been imprisoned more than twenty times as a result of her participation in various protests. In a 2002 interview, she stated, “I think organized labor is a necessary part of democracy. Organized labor is the only way to have fair distribution of wealth; it helps create a middle class. Without a middle class, there would be no democracy.”

In a few years, Obama will be the honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. For now, he is the actual chairman.

“I think organized labor is a necessary part of democracy. Organized labor is the only way to have fair distribution of wealth; it helps create a middle class. Without a middle class, there would be no democracy.”

Doesn't this professed socialist understand that the first thing a socialist movement attempts to do is destroy the middle class (Lenin's bourgeoisie)?

Obviously, she either hasn't been paying attention...or she's lying.

It's as if he's totally 'come out' in every way and is just mocking us. . The Presidential Medal of Freedom to the head of the DSA? Sure, no problem. . Ask me 10 years ago if this was even remotely possible and I would have thought you were psychotic.

I'm sure the squishes in the GOP will continue to state that Obama isn't a socialist.

If there is anyone in the GOP elite, or any journalist for that matter, who doesn't think Obama is a hard core socialist, then they need to start doing some real research. The data is all there. Many books have been written, many articles, websites, papers.

Maybe they could start by reading Trevor Loudon's excellent book, "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within."

The book description: " A history about those who advise, mentor, and operate behind the throne of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. From early childhood to the present day the President chose to keep his personal life a secret. Those who surround him fall into a wide category of radicals, marxists, communists, and Americans who have joined together in a coordinated effort to overthrow capitalism and the Republic of the United States of America."

Wake up GOP! Wake up America!

I think more and more the GOP should woo women voters with the following:

"Do you want your children and grandchildren to grow up in a socialist/communist system with all that that means?" Most, if not all women with children would say, "Hell No!"

Bigger Government equals Less Freedom for my Children!

What an absolute disgrace. The Presidential Medal of Freedom, (from the article), states:

The Medal of Freedom is awarded to individuals who have made “especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

So Obama gives the Medal of Freedom to a communist. How's that for saying FU America!

Obama just gave the worthless medal to the nut who said this :

...speech given ...by Hillary Clinton campaign co-chair Dolores Huerta, who railed, "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us" and gloated that immigration enforcement is moot because the reconquista is won. "It's really too late," Huerta said. "If 47 million [Latinos] have one baby each . . . it's already won."

Oh lol...

My moreno kids are being raised to recognize socialists as the children of Hitler, Marx and Stalin that they are.

These sad hate filled monsters will be severely disappointed when Latinos don't fall for their pathetic filth hook, line and sinker.

We have an issue with folks who don't acclimate to our culture of freedom, and some ethnic groups are far more prone that others, but the fact is there is a strong group of conservative Latinos who do embrace the culture and are as American as anyone else.

It's the open borders/no borders crowd trying to import a culture that's contrary to American values that's the real issue. They want to displace by numbers with a "dependent class" of people the American culture of freedom. These people should be shunned and despised along with their facilitators, and rightfully so.

He, as president does represent all Americans, but his views, actions, and opinions do not. Many opinions of any president are met with 50-50 acceptance and everyone knows that. Not everyone agreed with Bush (I did) and not everyone agrees with Obama (I don't). But, while he can give that medal to a socialist/communist in the name of the United States, every citizen does not have to participate in the congratulatory ceremony.

Why he picks out people like Van Jones, Saul Alinsky, Bernadine Dohrn, Rev. Wright and his so called czars is beyond me. He has us going down a path toward socialism/communism that the upcoming election will either end or exacerbate. What we need less of is the entitlement society that I believe we are headed for. As far as I'm concerned, if you don't earn it, it isn' yours. We can give to those who CANNOT gain on their own, but to those too damned lazy to get off their butts and work....nothing.

first of all, try not to spout irrevelant bible passages that I have to look up to respond.Daniel 9:27...zilch meaning, rev 6:2 oh please...rev 6:12 ditto...Matt 24:13 possibilities. He that shall persevere to the end shall be saved. That means you have to persevers FROM THE BEGINNING to the end. Now compare whatever "denomination" you follow to the true church of Jesus Christ. Catholics follow and persevere from the BEGINNING to the end. If you start out somewhere in the 16th century, chances are that you aren't too good at perseverance. shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
