Caesar Chavez nothing like left-wing portrayal.
The left-wing holds of fantastical versions of who Guevara and Chavez were. None of which have any resemblance of the truth.
Che Guevara was a spoiled brat rich white kid who traveled around Latin America on his rich parents dime and championed non-white Marxists, because he thought it was a cool thing to do. He then became an executioner for Fidel Castro and oversaw the murder of nearly one thousand “thought criminals.”
Castro then sent Guevara to the Congo to arm and train African Marxists. While in the Congo he had a change of heart. He wrote that the Negro race was untrainable, lazy, indolent, and unwashed. He wrote that Socialism would never work in Africa, because it’s people lacked the intelligence to have a complicated form of government.
Non of this stopped left-wingers from waving Che Guevara flags at Obama campaign rallies. Look at the picture of the moron to right with his Che Guevara portrait next to his Obama portrait. After returning from Africa, Guevara was opposed to putting members of the black race in positions of leadership.
Much like Guevara, the left-wing fantasy about Caesar Chavez has nothing to do with reality. The actual Caesar Chavez spent much of his political energy fighting illegal immigration from Mexico.
Cesar Chavez — The First Minuteman
by Steve Sailor
In California, only three birthdays are official state holidays: Jesus Christ’s, Martin Luther King’s, and Cesar Chavez’s. Beatification as a secular saint, though, isn’t always good for the soul. A recent four-part exposé by reporter Miriam Pawel in the Los Angeles Times revealed how the labor leader turned revered ethnic icon descended into paranoia, megalomania, and general crack-pottery in the 15 years before his death in 1993.
Today, his United Farm Workers functions less as a union—it represents only 2 percent of the California agricultural workforce—than as a lucrative Latino-pride fundraising machine providing sinecures for a dozen Chavez relatives. Pawel writes, “Chavez’s heirs run a web of tax-exempt organizations that exploit his legacy and invoke the harsh lives of farm workers to raise millions of dollars in public and private money. The money does little to improve the lives of California farm workers, who still struggle with the most basic health and housing needs and try to get by on seasonal, minimum-wage jobs.”
From 1965 to 1981, the UFW succeeded in raising wages significantly for stoop laborers in California. Since then, their pay has fallen, and they’ve lost most of the fringe benefits they had won. Today, most make less than $10,000 per year. Hundreds were discovered near Salinas living in caves, a mass indignity that even that town’s most famous son, John Steinbeck, barely anticipated in The Grapes of Wrath.
Unfortunately, in focusing on gossip about the personal foibles of Chavez and his successors, the LA Times series completely ignored the politically incorrect paradox of who was most responsible for wiping out the gains Mexican-American farm workers had achieved through strikes and consumer boycotts: illegal immigrants from Mexico.
Why does the left believe such fantasies? Some of their leaders actually know they are lying, but have no problem with lying as a political tactic. The rank and file leftists will simply believe anything.
