Skip to comments.Obama Awards Highest Honor to Democratic Socialists Chair

Yesterday President Obama awarded radical open border advocate Dolores Huerta with the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor a civilian can receive. There's just one problem: Huerta is an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America and likes to pal around with Hugo Chavez.
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics.
At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. We are activists committed not only to extending political democracy but to demanding democratic empowerment in the economy, in gender relations, and in culture. Democracy is not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society. Our vision is of a society in which people have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives. We call this vision democratic socialism — a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society.
In this web site you can find out about DSA, its politics, structure and program. DSA's political perspective is called Where We Stand. It says, in part,
We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit, alienated labor, race and gender discrimination, environmental destruction, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.
We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources, meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.
"Whether you are documented or not."
By ‘democracy’ the socialists really mean, ‘not democracy’.
More New World Disorder from the fraudulent Obama. Can hardly wait to see what else he can pull out of his hat before he gets the boot.
Karl Marx Day?
Birds of a feather.
I watched the award ceremony with the mute button on because I wanted to see Pat Summitt receive the award. My husband used to make service calls to her dad’s farm to repair her dad’s tractor and farm equipment
Failed socialist wealth distribution policies sometimes can have that effect when working people, conned by the leftmedia into believing Obama was so darn 'historic' and 'moderate' they would have been almost unpatriotic not to vote for him, wake up. Four long years later, with our economy in free fall, perhaps voters will face the reality that Obama the alien is not only inept but rejects just about everything that made America great and is striving to convert the land of the brave and the home of the free into the land of the dole and the home of slaves to the government. Perhaps, this time, the GOP presidential candidate will actually confront Obama on his failures and radical ideology. Perhaps.
“Birds of a feather.”
You took the words right out of my mouf.
I’m wondering if anyone noticed the irony in Obama’s Memorial Day speech about how badly Vietnam vets were treated and what a travesty it was, only to walk right over and give the Medal of Freedom to anti-war activists and soldier-haters, Bob Dylan and Dolores Huerta. I’d add Toni Morrison, but I could never understand anything she said.
The old hag looks like she’s getting ready for a dirt nap.....Say hi to all the commies in hell....
What Rush failed to mention is that almost every recipient is liberal. In one instance there is a Marxist. My working vocabulary does not supply me with a word powerful enough and descriptive enough that adequately describes this SOB. sd

Like the “Democratic German Republic”, i.e. Communist East Germany, or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, i.e. Stalinist North Korea. The left always loves to capture and bastardize words which were intended to stand for the good and true (see: gay, rainbow, inclusive, equality, freedom, responsibility, etc.)
No, they mean democracy because it destroys liberty and leads to tyranny which is their end goal. A republic is the golden mean for government and a republic keeps the elites in check.
Not a thing in history is good about democracy. We’re a republic for a reason. Conservatives need to know why.
This is why liberals love to call America a “representative democracy”. It tricks children who then grow up to vote.
Will anybody but Rush denounce this ? He at leastgoes to 20 million but imagine if the RNC or Mitt himself questioned this award .
