Obama Awards Socialist Leader Highest Honor at White House – Admits He Stole Her “Yes We Can” Slogan (Video)

Barack Obama gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dolores Huerta, an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. During the ceremony today President Obama admitted he stole her slogan “Yes we can!” for his 2008 campaign.

Heritage reported:

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.

Huerta is also an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America.

DSA describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International.”

Huerta has claimed, “Republicans hate Latinos,” and has spoken fondly of Hugo Chavez’s despotic regime in Venezuela.

The Medal of Freedom is awarded to individuals who have made “especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.

Barack Obama admitted at the ceremony today that he stole Huerta’s slogan for his campaign.

Similarly, when Cesar Chavez sat Dolores Huerta down at his kitchen table and told her they should start a union, she thought he was joking. She was a single mother of seven children, so she obviously didn’t have a lot of free time. But Dolores had been an elementary school teacher and remembered seeing children come to school hungry and without shoes. So in the end, she agreed — and workers everywhere are glad that she did. Without any negotiating experience, Dolores helped lead a worldwide grape boycott that forced growers to agree to some of the country’s first farm worker contracts. And ever since, she has fought to give more people a seat at the table. “Don’t wait to be invited,” she says, “Step in there.” And on a personal note, Dolores was very gracious when I told her I had stolen her slogan, “Si, se puede.” Yes, we can. (Laughter.) Knowing her, I’m pleased that she let me off easy — (laughter) — because Dolores does not play. (Laughter.)

  • Eh…this is nothing more than a “circle jerk” award no different from the self-flagellating Academy Awards. There was a time when this award meant something. However, it was hijacked long ago by self-centered presidents on both sides of the aisle to reflect acknowledgement of friendships and crony pals. Take some time to peruse previous winners and you will understand my point. The criteria for selection no longer reflects the original purpose for the award.

    olores Huerta: I think that Cuba is a shining example of what a society can do for their citizens in terms of education, health care, organization, with the little resources that they have, what they have been able to do, it is just incredible; it is just a model for society. And I think this government knows this, and that is why they do not want people to go to Cuba, because if people go to Cuba and they see what they have been able to accomplish there with so little resources, it puts all the wealthy countries to shame!

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, I am awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Democratic Socialist of America leader Dolores Huerta for blundling a huge amount of money for my campaign. Further, she has a Limousine! You can’t say that for your average socialist!

    Sure, I am thief and stole her ‘Yes We Can’ slogan – but what is new. Ha ha! And, yes, I am a socialist Marxist. I can lie out of ether side of my mouth while emptying your wallet – which no Mormon like Mitt Romney could ever do.

    I must say that these skills gives me a huge advantage during this election. In any debate I will cheat, lie and defect all questions. I will make up facts as I please. That is why I am better. It also shows the stark difference be Me and my opponent.

    Sure, my campaign sucks. But, I do have some tricks up my sleeve – like higher taxes and higher gas prices. It is up to you. Do you want a slick scam artist or an honest man? The differences couldn’t be greater. Good day.

  • potkas7

    Just to be clear…He got the “Yes We Can” slogan from his Harvard classmate Deval Patrick who had previously used the meaningless canard in his campaign for Governor of Massachusetts.

    Obama has the delusion that just because he says something, people are supposed to accept it as true rather than see he’s just blowing smoke up somebody’s backside.

  • Lightwave

    Bush awarded his medals to cronies (literally, his own former cabinet members). Obamee awards his medals to dangerous sociopaths and terrorist sympathizers. That’s an improvement, right?

    The LUITPOS has to double-down so that his replacement, Romney, will have an easier time moving forward to socialism & a new world order. Romney can keep all the “good” measures and remove all the “bad” ones. i.e. Romeny will continue down the same path at LUITPOS by keeping the material aspects of LUITPOS while removing immaterial ones claiming he’s bringing in “conservative” changes.

    Sad. It’s just so sad to actually see the destruction of our once Great Republic by demonic hordes & stupid sheeple doing what they’re told.

    Close, but Patrick’s slogan was “Together We Can.” Coupe Deval’s campaign was the template used for Jugear’s presidential run – both managed by Axeldouche.

    Regardless, the after witnessing the roll-out for Coupe, I was struck by the many similarities just two years later when the SCFOAMF came on the scene.

    Make’s me wonder if the the Dems don’t come out with and pay for a third-party candidate to run this year, the same formula that got Coupe elected for a second term.

    Wal-Mart vs. The Morons in Washington

    1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

    2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

    3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

    4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

    5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

    6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

    7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

    8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

    9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

    10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

    11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

    12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

    You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

    This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

    To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature:

    It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

    a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years
    to get it right and it is broke.

    b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
    right and it is broke.

    c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right
    and it is broke.

    d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right;
    $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the
    poor” and they only want more.

    e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years
    to get it right and they are broke.

    f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right
    and it is broke.

    g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence
    on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion
    a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
    and it is an abysmal failure.

    You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our

    Obama’s Campaign of Ignorance

    With Romney’s recent victory in the Texas primary, Obama’s campaign of ignorance will officially begin as the general election campaign for the presidency has begun in earnest.

    Don’t believe me! Let’s take a closer look.
    War on Women

    One of the first bits of ignorance from the Obama campaign is the idea that the GOP is waging a “war on women.” They even went so far as to create a website that told you the story of “Julia” who is supposed to represent the average American woman.

    You have to love the hypocritical rhetoric here. The policies of the supposed right don’t put women at a disadvantage; they aren’t a disservice to women – IT’S WAR!!! (And then they would tell you it’s the right that is “violent.” Who knew they lied? Example: Occupy Wall Street)

    Even the Obama campaign’s personal PR firm – i.e. MSNBC – had a hard time supporting the idea that a woman’s entire life is utterly dependent on the government.

    Some other interesting quotes to support Obama’s campaign of ignorance here:

    The Obama campaign depends on some false or dubious assumptions in its “Life of Julia” slide show…But in reality, the contrasts are not so stark or simple as the Obama team would have viewers believe.
    “The Life of Julia” is the ideological vision of modern liberalism… Julia’s entire life is defined by her interactions with the state.

    So, as you can see, Obama’s campaign of ignorance is waging a war on the intelligence of women, the independent nature of women, and tries to paint women as needing to be taken care of for their entire life — since women are completely unable to take care of themselves.
    Class Warfare

    “…tell you who’s to blame for it. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you win elections.” – Andrew Shepard The American President

    The Obama campaign has gone through “boogey men” like sick children go through Kleenex. Here’s a partial rundown of the people who are to blame for the sad state of America:

    Insurance/Drug companies – Despite the fact that both groups worked with the Obama Administration during the whole health care debate. Drug Industry Deal – that the Obama Administration backed away from. They even launched an ad campaign to support it.
    Wall Street/Bankers – This was the one that sparked a movement that was supposed to represent the 99% of Americans who aren’t “rich.” The rampant greed on Wall Street, as well as the banks, was in desperate need of being controlled – or reigned in – by the Federal government. That is why they passed financial reform which is supposed to prevent the “greedy” Wall Street banker types from being able to do it again – never mind that the Volcker Rule still has not actually gone into effect. (That is supposed to happen this July.)
    The “Rich” – This is the one that has stuck around the longest. He started this during the 2008 campaign with his now famous conversation with “Joe the Plumber.” (You remember this one – Obama told Joe that he wanted to “spread the wealth around.”)

    The mantra about “the rich” from the Obama campaign is that they need to pay their “fair share” of taxes. Obama even proposed the “Buffett Rule” which is to prevent people like Warren Buffet – net worth $44 billion – from paying less in taxes than his personal secretary.

    From the White House site:

    No household making more than $1 million each year should pay a smaller share of their income in taxes than a middle class family pays. This is the Buffett Rule—a simple principle of tax fairness that asks everyone to pay their fair share.

    If you watch their video clip on the “Buffett Rule”, they will tell you that the wealthiest 400 Americans made on average $110 million last year. Their total income would equal $44,000,000,000. What the Obama campaign is saying should happen to help pay down the debt is that these folks should pay 30% of their income in taxes. Let’s do the math, shall we?

    30% of $44 billion dollars is — $13.2 billion

    For the majority of us, that seems like a boatload of money. But, you need to look at it in government terms. How much is $13.2 billion when the last budget proposed by Obama was over $3 trillion dollars? (Using 3 trillion as a nice round number.) Anyone want to guess the percentage?

    Drumroll please!!!!

    {…] {…} much more

    As far as slogan-stealing goes…

    I hear Michelle has dibs on Let them eat cake!.

  • One thing the Romney people need to do is forget about this bullcrap of not attacking Obama personally. Look what he’s doing giving the nations highest medal to a god damn (pardon my French, but I’m really mad about this), Socialist/Marxist/Communist just like Obama is. Romney needs to understand that this election is not just about how to fix the economy. He has to realize that the reason why the whole country is in the fix it’s in is because of Socialists calling themselves “Liberals” a long time ago in order to hide the fact that Socialism is what is destroying the country under the disguise of Liberalism. If Romney would just look at the Communist Manifesto he would see that it is what is being used to wreak this nation. But one of the other important things that is also being used to wreak the economy is Cloward-Piven economic policy where the government is so overburdened with dependent benefits to people who don’t deserve them that the government soon implodes and collapses the economy. Throw in all the Liberalism which is all the environmentalism, multiculturalism, open border policy, bowing down to Islamic terrorists right here in America and allowing Muslims to come to this country, continuously keeping Black/White relations stirred up with the help on all of this a compliant news medial both inside the media and outside the media, billionaires pumping money into NGO’s and anti-American organizations putting people on the street like the Occupier’s who are keeping the public’s attention on them and their issues, and their dangerous threats people are having to look for in order to avoid, and the only thing Romney is looking at is some economic issues he plans on making some changes to?

    I’d say Romney has a hell of alot more to take into consideration than just the economy. It’s all these things that the Communists have put into play in order to cause so much confusion and problems to have to deal with that they are about to destroy this nation, I’d just like to know what kind of country do they expect to have after the collapse comes? What do they possibly think the government is going to be able to do in order to stop the collapse that Marshall Law is going to solve? Nothing, that’s what it will be able to do. And hold the population hostage? And what do they think the population is going to be doing all the time that the government thinks it has everything under control? That’s just it, it’s not going to be under control and thousands of American’s are going to die in the process.

  • Now, if this doesn’t show who Obama is then I don’t know what would. I’m sure there will be alot of liberals out in the hinterland who don’t really see anything wrong with Socialism that giving this award to this Marxist *itch, then they won’t see that Obama is a danger to this nation and gives our nations highest award to someone who doesn’t have a belief in the way this nation was created to begin with is the way it’s supposed to be, not a Socialist nation. You know, liberals are liberals first, and that means everything about Liberalism is what they believe and that is that the farm workers needed a union in order to make sure the “rich” farmers don’t rip them off in giving them low wages, so this piece of Socialist crap thinks it’s okay to start a union? NO, what she did was make sure Mexican’s were getting a fair share of the profits.

    Why doesn’t this woman move to Mexico and see how here union organizing would go over down there.

  • Look at Dylan standing there. He looks like he’s not there and is just waiting for his chance to leave. I want Dylan to stand at least with Israel and denounce Obama and his Socialist friends. Let’s see Dylan throw his Medal of Freedom over the White House fence, or what would have been better was to wait for Obama to start to give it to him and then tell Obama that he is not going to accept the medal if Obama is giving it away to someone who holds a ideology that traditionally hates Jews, and is a supporter of terror against Israel. Then just turn around and walk away. That would have been perfect. I think people need to just start showing some guts towards this……man. His skin is very thin and doesn’t take critisism well, so people need to start heeping it onto him especially to his face. Of course that would cause him to do a much deeper background search of people he wants to give awards to, so that wouldn’t help.

  • valerie

    Oh, wow. Arthur Davis is now a Republican.


    “On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country. You have also seen me write that faith institutions should not be compelled to violate their teachings because faith is a freedom, too. You’ve read that in my view, the law can’t continue to favor one race over another in offering hard-earned slots in colleges: America has changed, and we are now diverse enough that we don’t need to accommodate a racial spoils system. And you know from these pages that I still think the way we have gone about mending the flaws in our healthcare system is the wrong way—it goes further than we need and costs more than we can bear.”

    n, I love being right. You people are racist to the core! It’s the Novemeber elections and obviously the right aren’t hiding their racist tendencies anymore. It’s there for all to see. How do I know? the racist right are doubling down on their lies and smears to get the black man out of office.

    ” Dolores Huerta did a lot to raise the standard of living for migrant farmworkers in this country. How is this a bad thing at all? Ask the migrant workers if they were more free before Dolores Huerta and Caesar Chavez, or after.

    He’s been a great success. He’s:
    – stopped the job loss hemorrhage that he faced when he entered office and created 4.2 million new private sector jobs.
    – He and Bush bailed out the banks. Over Republican opposition, Obama saved the US auto industry from going into bankruptcy. (Saving banks and Detroit makes him a hero and not a socialist/communist. One of those would have nationalized those industries.
    – He’s no racist. His mother was white and his white grandparents raised him. What’s your problem?

    I know It’s because Obama is awarding a Non-white revolutionist like Dolores!

    Communism is a utopiaistic idea. it has never occured in the form it is meant for, and is most likely impossible. NOTHING is wrong with communism, but still Obama is not communist. Maybe a little socialist though, which is an ideal that is in the interests of the people, get your facts, and dont listen to inter party rhetoric. Vote for Obama because his intersts coincide with yours and about 99% of the populations, if you vote for Romney, well then its your suicide note, but its your choice.

    If Republicans calling Obama a Muslim is one of Obama’s failings, that particular “failing” can be blamed on Republicans.

    Also, Obama might or might not be the most knowledgeable recent President on Judiasm, but he clearly is more knowledgeable than the last 5 Republican Presidents (Bush, Bush, Reagan, Ford, Nixon). Nixon was an explicit anti-semite. The other 4 help define the term “incurious”.

    Obama is NOT Anti-American, how would an anti-american become or want to become the president? makes no sense. Funny that the racist right langauge fits the descpriton of Anti-American!
    And Obama is NOT a marxist, only Karl Marx was a Marxist.

    if anything, people are racist against him. They hate Obama NOT because he doesn’t think American. It’s because He doesn’t think ‘White”

    Your argument would be a lot more convincing if you didn’t paste the same thing into every thread, changing a couple words to make it seem relevant.

    This article is suprisingly accurate. I was encouraged by a law professor to listen to Mrs. Huerta speak when I attended a state university’s College of Law. Mrs. Huerta was invited by one of the law school’s clubs to visit the school and address the students. During her remarks, Mrs. Huerta not only lauded Hugo Chavez but she also suggested that we follow Cuba’s lead (particularly in terms of health care). Huerta also showed no reservation in explicitly making known her glowing support of Obama. I can attest to the latter as I was sitting on the front row of the auditorium when I listened to her speak (again at the behest of a professor mind you). Upon conclusion of her remarks, I left somewhat disgusted as Huerta was showered by adulation from law faculty and student admirers. It should come as no suprise that Obama and Huerta are aligned by similar views.

    and on a more serious note a trillion is not a small number. We owe what 15 or 16 of those trillion. It would take you 33 years to count to 1 trillion just to put it in perspective.

    Typical American: say the world ‘socialism’ and everyone gets confused. Eastern block dicatated communism no longer exists in the western world. Democratic socialism does. Note the first word: Democratic bascially means ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE. This is the opposite to DICTATED BY A PERSON. It’s thanks to Unions, that we all enjoy a 40 hour work week. I thank this lady for standing up for my rights as a woman.
