Obama and the left have a habit of distorting and rewriting history to bend it to their warped views of how the world should look and how history should have been recorded.
I'm starting to wonder if maybe they are that deluded, that like Dorothy clicking her ruby slippers together, if you wish hard enough for something to be so – if you want badly enough for it to be – you may then record that fantasy as factual history.
"Auntie Em, Auntie Em." "Oh little Barack – it's okay now – we're all here." "But Auntie Em – I had the most horrible nightmare. Reverend Wright – you were there, and you Mr. Ayers. Frank Marshall Davis was there." "Here I am son. No need to fret." "And Mr. Alinsky…" "Don't worry son. You're awake now. The Constitution was just a bad dream."
Yeah, it's like that. Or maybe it's like the wife of a deceased union leader and activist completely turning history on its head to fit the current narrative.
Frankly, I was more stunned at this revision of history that almost anything Obama has said. MoveOn.org strikes again.
I received an e-mail blast last week from Helen F Chavez, the widow of famous farm labor leader Cesar Chavez. Helen F (F is for fraud) Chavez wanted to thank Emperor Obama for his unilateral action on immigration.
She writes: "Unlike my husband, I never got involved in politics until October 2012, when president Obama came to dedicate the Cesar E Chavez National Monument at the Tehachapi Mountain town of Keene, California. That's where Caesar lived and worked his last quarter century, and it's where he is buried. As we walked away from paying our respects at my husband's grave site, with the president holding my arm, I asked, 'Mr. President, will you promise you will do something on immigration reform?' 'Yes, Mrs. Chavez, I promise I will,' he said."
Yes, I have no doubt that's what happened (he said tongue in cheek).
Although she never clearly states it, in the e-mail, she wants to convey the impression that her late husband was a champion of illegals and would have approved of Obama's action. And this just shows the arrogance and hubris of the left because nothing could be further from the truth.
Chavez was virulently opposed to illegal immigrants. As I wrote in my 2012 article "Immigration Transformation," Chavez "strongly opposed illegal immigration, saying that it undermined his ability to unionize farm workers and improve conditions and wages for the American worker. The union would even report illegals to the feds. How far we've come in a short 47 years, eh? In 1969, Chavez, along with Walter Mondale (yes, that Walter Mondale), organized a march on the southern border protesting farmers' use of illegals. Imagine that happening today. That's progress, I guess." Progress indeed.
Now, I knew this about Cesar Chavez as did you most likely. Just how little does MoveOn think of their supporters to imply something completely opposite of historical fact, and get away with it?
Well, the answer is obvious by just listening to the left's leadership. Most of what they say and write is crap and completely distorts if not attempts to rewrite history. Yet they do so with impunity.
The leadership of the left is the ones that think we are all stupid – they simply figure that we are all too ignorant or lazy to find out for ourselves the easily discoverable fact that Mrs. Chavez is either a liar or a senile old woman who is no longer in touch with reality.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
