Letter: Radical organizers revealed

Published:

 

It was discouraging to read the Oct. 9 Columbian story telling us that "Obama honors Latino labor leader" Cesar Chavez. President Obama is pictured in the accompanying photograph with radical labor leader Dolores Huerta.

Both Chavez and Huerta are the products of Marxist-Leninist revolutionary agitator Saul Alinsky. Alinsky's Chicago-based revolutionary Industrial Areas Foundation is the group that trained community organizers. Chavez eventually left that organization because it was not revolutionary enough for him. It is not surprising that community organizer from Chicago, President Obama, praises and honors Chavez and appoints Dolores Huerta the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award. Obama is a product of the same Communist-riddled organization in Chicago. How stupid are we not to know this before we vote?

These facts on Huerta and Chavez came from the 14th Report of the California Senate Factfinding Subcommittee on Un-American Activities, published in 1967. Check it out.
