Another disgraceful day

The highest civilian honor that can be bestowed by the United States is the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  And Obama has once again disgraced his office with his latest selections.

President Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday to Dolores Huerta, an 82-year-old labor activist and co-founder of the United Farm Workers union.

Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.

DSA describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.”

Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela.
Way to go, Barry.

The story is at The Foundry.
