Conservatives, in yet another move that demonstrates their determination to reject the Hispanic community, are now using this American icon of civil rights history to try to smear President Obama.
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.As I look around the internet, this story is showing up on almost all of their sites..."OMG, he really MUST be a soshulist!"
Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.
Of course this tactic is likely to work with ignorant white people who know nothing of this powerful woman's leadership that continued the process of "forming our more perfect union."
But I'd suggest that all of us who honor Ms. Huerta and what she has done should take notice of who these people are trying to trash and what it says about them.
