Obama Honors TWO Chavez’ in One Week…

Nobody Reports

Last week, Obama shored up his Latino votes by honoring the Labor Leader Cesar Chavez.

Obama formally established the Cesar E. Chavez National Monument on a piece of property in Keene, east of Bakersfield. The property served as the national headquarters of the United Farm Workers.

Most people in the country, have little memory of this guy. BUT…if you listen to the media he was the Latino version of Mahatma Gandhi.

Uh…not really. Not many people know, that Cesar Chavez was trained by the communist ‘community organizer’ that wrote “Rules for Radicals” the Jewish agnostic, Saul Alinsky.

Alinsky personally trained community activists. The federal government spent more than $200 billion on War on Poverty programs in the first five years. Much of this money went to street radicals such as Alinsky.  It happens that Chavez was an Alinsky protégé.  Alinsky’s foundation had recruited him in 1952 and provided much of his early funding and training.. David Horowitz

But Chavez wasn’t so much the man working for the “little guy” in the field, in reality he basically was used by the unions to put more people on the union dues money-making train.

Chavez earned many titles in his life, but “champion of immigrants” was not one of them. He was primarily a labor leader who was concerned about illegal immigrants undercutting union members, either by accepting lower wages or crossing picket lines. He never pretended to be anything else, and he resisted attempts by others to widen his agenda. When he pulled workers out of the field during a strike, the last thing he wanted was to see a crew of illegal immigrant workers take away his leverage. Chavez ordered union members to call the Immigration and Naturalization Service and report illegal immigrants who were working in the fields so that they could be deported. Under the supervision of Chavez’s cousin, Manuel, UFW members tried at first to persuade Mexicans not to cross the border. One time when that didn’t work, they physically attacked and beat them up to scare them off, according to reports at the time.

Obama also called Hugo Chavez to congradulate him on his re-election. No small matter that Chavez had tanks in the streets.

It will be interesting to see in this election, if Obama will feel the need to call out tanks here in the United States…if the vote is close. I would not doubt if Hugo, who is rooting for his old community organizer pal Obama— calls him up, and tells him how to handle things.

Obama is very proud of having been a “community organizer” What we need to ask in this election is: Just WHOSE community is he organizing?
