Obama Celebrates Socialist Dolores Huerta

Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the book, "Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers."

When you’re a champion of so-called social justice, there is no end to the accolades you’re likely to receive regardless of your faults.

Falsely described by those on the Left as a compassionate humanitarian, radical labor leader Dolores Huerta has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama. Huerta “has fought to give more people a seat at the table,” Obama said euphemistically.

The award is not all that surprising for an administration that kisses the ring of Al Sharpton.

In an acceptance statement Huerta pushed all the right politically correct buttons:

The great social justice changes in our country have happened when people came together, organized, and took direct action. It is this right that sustains and nurtures our democracy today. The civil rights movement, the labor movement, the women’s movement, and the equality movement for our LGBT brothers and sisters are all manifestations of these rights.

Did Huerta leave any aggrieved interest group out? If she did, it must have been an innocent oversight because she’s far too wonderful and inspiring a leader to have deliberately slighted any gripe-laden, tax-eating constituency.

Huerta’s 501c3 community organizer-training nonprofit, the Dolores Huerta Foundation, receives funding from high-profile left-of-center philanthropies such as the (Bill and Hillary) Clinton Family Foundation ($100,000 in 2010), Women’s Foundation of California ($35,000 since 2009), and the (Norman) Lear Family Foundation ($10,000 since 2010).

Huerta will soon be portrayed by Rosario Dawson, a beautiful and glamorous movie star, in an upcoming film. And who knows what other tributes Hollywood will generate for the octogenarian socialist.

But despite all the hype, the oft-imprisoned Huerta is no angel. She is less the civil rights leader imagined by the mainstream media and more a champion of vulgar redistributionism. As the saying goes, if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Community organizers like Huerta don’t teach anyone how to fish: they teach activists how to steal their neighbors’ fish. This is what Huerta and her ilk call social justice.

“I think organized labor is a necessary part of democracy,” according to Huerta. “Organized labor is the only way to have fair distribution of wealth.”

It doesn’t seem to matter to the Obama administration that Huerta is no role model. Like leftist radicals Karl Marx and Jean-Jacques Rousseau she virtually abandoned her children in order to foment unrest as a union organizer. Huerta was arguably to the left even of her United Farm Workers colleague Cesar Chavez. Unlike Huerta, Chavez campaigned against illegal immigration and made an effort to work with Republican lawmakers in the California state legislature. Despite being a socialist, Chavez managed to earn respect on both the left and the right.

Huerta, however, hasn’t received much if any praise from conservatives and an examination of her career makes her an unlikely recipient of the nation’s highest civilian honor which in the past has gone to heroes and luminaries like former British prime ministers Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, actors John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, writers T. S. Eliot and William F. Buckley Jr., and singer Ella Fitzgerald.

    Speaking of farce: "The news could just as easily be a Saturday Night Live comedy skit or a Mad Magazine layout…" ….Because Obama, who is awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a radical Marxist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers, Dolores Huerta, had himself recieved the farcical Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

    "The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples…………………" ~ Rick Moran, American Thinker

      Fred, Dolores PUTA, ….I mean, Huerta spearheaded the union assault on parental rights in California's Prop 85. She is friends with the….wait for it,…..the SEIU, and had the union ask its 2.1 million members to reject Proposition 85.

      Proposition 85 – This initiative would merely have required abortionists to honor the standards of ear-piercers and aspirin dispensers and get parents' permission before going to work on their daughters.

      Huerta, is "a Roman Catholic," she persuaded a pro-choice group to put its many interns to work passing out pro-abortion propaganda to the union delegates before the vote was taken.

      Puta, I mean, Huerta had obviously not gotten the memo that her Catholic Church considers abortion "murder."

      The union support proved crucial in defeating Prop 85 by a narrow 53 to 47 margin

          Damned to hell for all eternity according to Catholic Church teaching, for a Catholic which

    • Serafino

      H&R has made a very good observation that women of the "community organizing" camp earn promotions on their back. Hence the name Puta. This is true in any socialist regime. So, my fellow Americans, it would be a safe assumption to say that any mid or high-ranking socialist (Democrat) female here in the US or abroad advanced in her ranks with the help of the bed.

      Wanna get even more disgusted? Girl Scouts of the USA is honoring her by creating a Delores Huerta badge so girls can emulate her as a role model! That shows you how far down the spiral Girl Scouts have gone! They also hold her up as an "Agent of Change" in their new, Socialist Progressive curricula — PAID FOR WITH YOUR COOKIE PURCHASES AND DONATIONS — to turn our little girls into abortion-loving, goose-stepping feminazis. BOYCOTT GIRL SCOUT PRODUCTS.

    This is done purely for Latino votes!!! And also to please the leftists. What would he not do buy votes for the next election?

    • fiddler

      He is definitely the campaigner-in-chief. Anything and everything is about him. He thrives on the gullibility of the masses. He seems to know that sheeple are generally stupid and will change with the wind. Just make them feel "good" with YOUR MONEY funding his spectacles. Frosts me!

      • Amused

        oh …just like Romney , changing with the wind …lol…even the slightest breeze .

    • Indioviejo

      Latinos are not a voting bloc. Some HATE Marxist and are eyeing Obama's Socialist pusch with great concern.

      • Amused

        yea and watch your boy Romney lick their arses in the months to come

  • oldtimer

    His true colors..a disgrace.

  • richard

    one commentator on fox news panal last night, to counter any criticism of this person, kept repeating the mantra; "she did a lot in the 60's. she was standing with bobby kennedy when he was shot", etc.
    it seemed inane and frustrating as the others just let him blather on…

    • Indioviejo

      This is why I don't watch FOX anymore. Between Shepard Smith and other disguised leftist, it has become a stealth jihadist.

        A Saudi prince ownes a lot of shares of the FOX network. He gets to veto any news report.

    the obama administration must go!

  • StephenD

    The sad fact is now the award is tainted so much that those recipients that truly deserved the recognition are little more than another name among a not so illustrious number. They have watered it down until there is no flavor left. Too bad.

    • Amused

      Yea , I can see that StephenD , that is looking at it from the point of view of a numbskull like you .

      • Amused

        oh , and the six other idiots who gave you the thumbs up .

          Now I'm going to be sleepless because your opinion really matters to me.

    It's almost as if the president were looking at some government form checking off the PC checkmarks as goes down the list. As for me, I guess I'm the "OTHER_______" slot, or perhaps not even there. I won't be missed.

    People need to talk to the guys who were in law enforcement back in the 60's and 70's….she is a violent militant!

  • Amused

    What a bunch of rabid attack dogs you people are ! Of course as the ringmaster and dog whistle blower Vadim states , she hasn't recieved much praise from conservatives …..she should consider that fact an honor . Imagine the nerve of that women , along with Chavez , fighting for the rights of farmworkers , who were treated likwe animals without representation .
    LOL…try and get conservatives out there in the fields , backs bent , planting and picking fruit and vegetables . She's abeeter American than Obama Romney , Reagan and the rest of you miserable ,meanspirited excuses for human beings . Maybe some of you schmucks oughta visit some of the migrant camps here down in Florida , you haven't a clue how they get screwed over so you can have your veggies on the cheap . And BTW fed up you oughta "fillup " that empty brain of yours and do a little investigation on Huerta , EVERY demonstration she ever took part in , as well as Chavez was NON VIOLENT you DUMBASSSS .

  • Amused

    Just to make it perfectly clear …Fed-up you're a brainwashed ignoramus .

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Medal of Freedom from Obama or a Nobel prize, about as valuable as a super ranger pin
    found in a sugary cereal of yesteryear………….These people will never get over themselves
    and this entire exercise is Obama trying to validate community agitators……..eeerrrr organizers.

  • Amused

    Yea Ward , imagine that ! People fighting for basic workplace rights ….how "un-American " of them . These people should know their place and just shut up .Lest they pisss-off the 1 % .. You know , like the Chinese who played a large part in building the railroads . Why should they have healthcare and pensions like the rest of us .Yea AGITATORS they are ! And the nerve of those people , their kids shoud just stay in the fields along with their parents , no school for them . How dare they gripe ! After all they oughta be glad they got a job ! Beside , tose kids are lower to te ground ,making it easier for them to pick your veggies . I guess the Constitution doesn't apply to them , Why should hispanics living in California , Arizona ,Texas , and New Mexico generations before these territories were annexed by the US , have the same rights under the Constitution . , yeaman that "pursuit of happiness " stuff shouldn't apply to those Americans . And those pesky Civil Right people , what gives them the right to demand Due Process and the benefits of The Bill of Rights ?
    You stink Ward .

    • WilliamJamesWard

      "You stink Ward" Pepe Amused Lapue how can you say such a thing, I fly to Chicago and
      purchase two one ounce bottles of cologne at $18,000.00 each just to smell perfect in
      honor of my extremely worthy persona, $36,000.00 total not to mention other expenses
      incurred staying at the Playboy Club. How can I afford this, by savings on what I pay for
      vegetables and other labor intensive exploits. If you are correct I will have my personal
      body attendants flogged for their perfidity, maybe they switched the good oils for some
      nasty sweat from labor menials thinking I would not notice, well you got em, I am now
      alerted by your suitable chomp chomp, bite bite, snarl snarl which is always appreciated
      as keeping me attuned to the realities of the World. Thank you Oh Great One!!!!!!!!!!
      Or maybe Obama is just grandstanding with honors to people of questionable background
      and it is really all about him and life in his Marxist bubble……………………William

  • Amused

    Every President going back before most of you contemptuous dolts were born , has awrded the Medal of Freedom to individual . Why dont you and your ilk go and investigate the past recipients .

  • Amused

    And if Mr. Kosloff is still lurking around out there , Vadims "alleged journalistic endeavor " here is nothing morebthan anothe STRAWMAN . Vadim "lifts his leg on " and denigrates the recipient of the Award , for the sole purpose of attacking Obama . Folks like this lot spilling their bile of these awards here are truly pathetic humam beings . And Vadim …."if the shoe fits" …….you know the rest .

  • cynthia curran

    Well, Marco Rubio sould distance himself from Guterreriz another Democratic for Hispanics against whites. Guterreriz even complaina bout Obama's deprotedation of illegal Mexicans but Conservative Marco Rubio is trying a new dream act bill with Gutterriz, so why do consertive Repbuclans hang out with hispanic Radicals.

  • Amused

    They'll " hangout " with anyone pandering for votes .Just look at Mitt Romney …lol…btw , Marco Rubio , has ALREADY sold out those who voted for him .

  • Amused

    Yea you jerks know how to give the thumbs down , but not a damn one of you has the balls to refute a single word I said about Huerta and that's because you create lies about her and believe your own lies and those of the author and others about her, and THAT ,for the sole purpose of denigrating Obama , and it seems you'll pisss on anyone to do that , because you're all a bunch of brainwashed idiots who will believe whatever crap is thrown before you ,and swallow it whole .

    • mrbean

      Amused, I am getting tired of your stupid postings, This woman is not representative of any achievement anymore than the aged brain damaged druggy hippy Bob Dylan is (and he can't sing worth a hoot anymore). She is a self proclaimed Marxist and a lifetime honorary chairperson of the Socialist Party of America. A minmum requirement for this award should be that they openly support and defend the US Constitution. But then look at the presenter; a Nobel Prize winner for no achievement?

  • Amused

    Still no comments from the EMPTY HEADS in the Conservative echo/propaganda chamber …just more thumbs down disapproval ..lol….you stand silent in the face of the lie you swallowed that was hand fed you by your masters ,of which one, is Mr.Vadim . You pathetic losers .Let's see some more thumbs down !
    I accept the honors .

    Hey saladbowl head , the subject is Huerta . For every ethical offense you can enumerate and blame unions for , there are just as many offenses on the part of big buisiness , who by their cuthroat behavior , created the cause for unions .

  • Amused

    BTW , if those muslims are simply taking the same two 10 minute breaks as everyone else , then there'
    s no problem . My question here would be are all workers required to clock out on the breaktime ? If not then they have a case .If they're taking more than their two 10 minute breaks and are told to clock out if they are , and not doing so , then Hertz will easily win and the Teamsters lose . Even non-union , anti-union slugs like you get two breaks , unless of course you're a company suckasss and work through your breaks . I dont necessarily care about muslims or their bullsheet , but on a job given two breaks , I could care less what anyone does on their break .Nor should you , unless you're anal retentive.
