Dolores Huerta is not shy about her socialist beliefs. She’s heaped public praise on the work Hugo Chavez is doing by socializing Venezuela and wonders why America isn’t following the same path (wait…we aren’t?) Huerta has said that "Republicans hate Latinos" and has no problem with illegal immigration. So, of course, she's a great pick for the Presidential Medal of Freedom ...if your President happens to be a socialist.
That's right, Dolores Huerta can now add one more bullet to her resume. Thanks to President Obama she has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
It would be a HUGE understatement to say Glenn wasn’t exactly thrilled about this, as he told listeners about the President’s honoree. Glenn has been lambasted by the mainstream media for daring to describe President Obama as a socialist.
When given the facts, Glenn would argue that the mainstream media should be lambasted for calling the President anything but a socialist, and for completely ignoring and/or avoiding his radical ties. His latest slogan, “Forward,” has been used throughout history in socialist and communist regimes, he’s appointed multiple known socialists and communists along with those that praise them to his cabinet – Carole Browner, Van Jones, and Anita Dunn just to name a few – and now, he’s honored an honoree chair of the Democratic Socialists of America with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
“So you have some idea of who has received this in the past, it has been Billy Graham, Pope John Paul, Gordon B. Hinckley, Mother Teresa, Neal Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Friedrich Hyack, Bill Cosby, Ansel Adams, Frank Sinatra, B.B. King, John Wayne, Walt Disney, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Norman Rockwell, and Dolores Huerta – the honoree chair of the Democratic Socialists of America,” Glenn said, “A woman who has bashed the United States as a nation that stole Mexican land, whose allegiance lies not with this country but with Mexico.”
After playing an audio clip of Huerta saying that "Republicans hate Latinos," Glenn reminded listeners that President Obama was supposed to be ‘the great uniter’, “so he starts by giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a woman who says that Republicans hate Latinos?” Glenn asked.
But there’s more. Here are just a few samples of the audio clips Glenn played on radio this morning:
Huerta (speaking to Mexicans/Mexican Americans): “As we like to say, we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us”
Huerta: “And we have a campaign that we rolled out – and we rolled it out here in the state of Texas deliberately, because we wanted the message to come home to the neighborhood, to the barrio, to the community. And it’s a program that we’re calling ‘We Can Help.’
Huerta (speaking in a commercial): “I’m Delores Huerta and I have a message for every hardworking farmworker: You deserve to get paid every dollar you earn, and have safe housing and transportation. This is the law. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division can help if there’s a problem. Whether your documented or not, the call is free and confidential.”
Huerta also had a lot of surprisingly great things to say about Hugo Chavez and what he’s doing down in Venezuela. She praised the cooperative farms, free medical and dental care, the free housing for the people (that Venezuela’s military commands their representative to provide). “We are the richest country in the world, right? So why can’t we do that in the United States? Republicans hate Latinos. Republicans hate Latinos,” Huerta said.
Glenn emphasized again that yes, Dolores Huerta, who praises socialist dictators like Hugo Chavez, is the Presidential Medal of Freedom Honoree.
“So you know who Hugo Chavez is. Why can't we do this in America? There's many people in this administration who ask that very question. Why can't we do it!? In fact, one of them is the Marxist and diversity Czar at the FCC Mark Lloyd,” Glenn said. “A guy who says a very important revolution happened, but only when he got control of the media.”
Glenn decided to take a better look at the wonderful Venezuela and Hugo Chavez that everyone in this administration seems to adore so much.
Here are just a few of the facts on Chavez and Venezuela that Glenn shared with listeners this morning:
Hugo Chavez has rationed water and light. Small towns in Venezuela now go weeks without water and hours without electric lights.
He’s trying to control what students can and cannot do. Chavez has his own University where Chaveznistas can attend – none of them get hired. Why? Their educational system is so "efficient" that students can become a doctor in a three years and an engineer in two.
Chavez is a friendly contact to the gorillas from Columbia, and also had a good relationship with the Saddam Hussein.
Chavez has fostered a relationship with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and there are now Iranian missiles pointed towards the U.S. from Venezuela.
Venezuala has nationalized oil, gas, and banking industries.
Chavez has threatened the lives of politicians that dares to run against him and their families. He has also taken part in kidnappings of other politician and other politician families.
“This is who Dolores Huerta admires. This is what she's out preaching we should be more like. This is the woman that the President just honored yesterday with the Medal of Freedom,” Glenn said.
