It takes a real piece of work to simultaneously honor a communist subversive and insult a hero of the Eastern European resistance. Right on cue, here's Barack Obama. This incident reveals too much about Barack Obama's core values to let it pass without comment.
Who are Dolores Huerta and Lech Walesa?!?
Dolores Huerta is a Communist. While it's unclear if she was ever a paid agent of Moscow, the depth of her commitment to revolutionary Marxism is not. In the 1980's, when the Nicaraguan Freedom Fighters confronted Moscow's Bloodthirsty Sandinistas, Dolores Huerta chose Moscow. Dolores Huerta has praised Hugo Chavez, a dictator who has systematically impoverished and enslaved his people. Ditto Fidel Castro. Dolores Huerta has been a friend of Godless Tyranny for Decades.
Lech Walesa led the Polish Solidarity movement at a time when doing so led to torture or worse. Unlike Dolores Huerta, a coward who only promoted tyranny behind the protection of the United States Constitution, Lech Walesa courageously stood for liberty behind the Iron Curtain. Lech Walesa's courage inspired the Pope and Reagan. In describing Lech Walesa, Ronald Reagan said it best:
You don't get a much clearer contrast than Dolores Huerta and Lech Walesa; that Barack Obama chose to honor one and insult the other tells you everything you need to know about Barack Obama.
