Obama gave Dolores Huerta, an honorary chairperson of the DSA a Presidential Medal of Freedom. This is the highest honor that can be given to a civilian.
Huerta has been in prison over twenty times for protests. Her views:
- She believes in distribution of wealth.
- That the USA was behind 9/11.
- She says the war on terror is a war on immigrants.
- Republicans hate Latinos.
This is how the DSA describes themselves::
Our "policies require the support of a majoritarian coalition of trade unionists, people of color, feminists, gays and lesbians and all other peoples committed to democratic change" in order to begin "transforming the power relations of global capitalism."
Rush Limbaugh says giving her this award renders it useless — a political award and nothing more.
Obama’s ties to socialism are plenty.
In 1996, Obama made a speech at an event sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). (Source)
Obama’s father from Kenya was a Socialist. He is famous for this quote: (Source)
"Theoretically, there is nothing that can stop the government from taxing 100% of income so long as the people get benefits from the government commensurate with their income which is taxed." – July 1965.
Obama chooses a campaign slogan for 2012 "Forward" that has a Communist meaning. (Source).
And we didn’t even get to his associations, his mentors, his past writings.
