Barack Obama Shows True Colors in Awarding Medal of Freedom to Socialist -- posted on June 5, 2012 by Giacomo
Once again, Barack Obama (I truly dislike calling him President Obama) has shown his true colors and where his political and social views lie. It’s been no secret, especially on this website, that Obama is a socialist. Growing up he was schooled and mentored by them. In his political career, including his invasion of the White House, he has surrounded himself with Marxists and socialists.
If you had any doubts about his loyalty to socialism, allow me to open your eyes to his latest flaunting of it by awarding the Medal of Freedom to Delores Huerta.
Have you ever heard of Delores Huerta? She not only is an extreme left-wing labor activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers Union, she is also the honorary chairperson of the Democratic Socialists of America. The DSA is purported to be to be the largest socialist organization in America. They are also affiliated with Socialist International.
The Democratic Socialists of America is an organization that works with labor unions and college campuses to promote socialistic ideology. Michael Harrington, former executive board member of the Socialist Party of America, helped organize and map out the ideology and policies of the DSA in its early years. One of his goals was to reorganize the Democratic Party to officially make it the principle party of the left. DSA publishes a quarterly newsletter called, Democratic Left and runs a youth section known as Young Democratic Socialists.
I hope you note how often socialists use the terms or names Democrat or Democratic in association to Socialists. When you take time to read about many of them, you will quickly see that in their eyes, Democrat and Socialist are the same thing and can be used interchangeably.
Obama’s awarding the Medal of Freedom to Huerta signifies his embracing of others involved in socialist activities in the US. It is also raising concerns among a number of people including The Heritage Foundation. Israel Ortega, the Foundation’s spokesman for the Hispanic speaking sector offered the following remarks to One News Now,
“It’s quite surprising that someone would get a Medal of Freedom when she’s been praising a system of government that is anything but freedom-valuing. Particularly disturbing are some audio clips of her praising Hugo Chavez’s government and some of the practices, including taking private property.”
“I think clearly there was some calculus by the White House that he had to have someone who is part of a labor union, part of that kind of progressive side of politics, and I think obviously the fact that she is Hispanic was also a consideration.”
Like so many other things Obama has taken something that is supposed to be used to honestly honor someone or something and turned it into a political campaign event. He did the same thing with Memorial Day, Easter and every other holiday. It has always been about him and not the day, event or medal.
Since Obama has been wallowing in the mud so as to sling as much of it at Romney as possible, I would hope and pray that the Romney campaign would make some campaign ads exposing his socialist agenda and use Huerta and the Medal of Freedom as an example. The American people need to see the socialist wolf for what he really is. If Romney started running ads emphasizing Obama’s socialist agenda, homosexual agenda, anti-US Constitution agenda, anti-middle class agenda, he would have a better chance of sending the ravenous wolf scurrying with his tail between his legs come November.
