Home many times have we heard from the Democrats that Obama isn’t a socialist? Yet, the Anointed One consistently reaffirms our assertions, in spite of the protestations of the left. The latest example is his treatment of Polish hero and freedom fighter Lech Walesa:
According to the Wall Street Journal, Polish officials requested that Walesa accept the Medal of Freedom on behalf of Jan Karski, a member of the Polish Underground during World War II who was being honored posthumously this week. The request makes sense. Walesa and Karski shared a burning desire to rid Poland of tyrannical subjugation. But President Obama said no.
Administration officials told the Journal that Walesa is too “political.” A man who was arrested by Soviet officials for dissenting against the government for being “political” is being shunned by the United States of America for the same reason 30 years later.
Meanwhile, one of the recipients of the Medal was Dolores Huerta, the honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. So socialist politics are acceptable, but not the politics of a man who stood up and fought socialism.
Let’s get this straight. Obama refuses to allow a legitimate freedom fighter and friend of the United States to accept a posthumous award on behalf of another Polish hero; but he’ll bestow the Medal of Freedom unto Dolores Huerta – a known socialist, political activist, and friend of tyrants like Hugo Chavez. This woman is the anti-thesis of the honor bestowed upon her.
When the Progressives protest the accusation that Obama is a socialist, be sure to point to this insult.
