Chavez marched under the famous slogan “Si se puede!” – later translated into English to become Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan “Yes we can!”
The Chavez movement was, in many ways the forerunner of the Obama movement. Overlapping personnel and constituent organizations, identical radical ideology.
Yesterday president Obama joined several leaders of the Alinsky/communist/socialist movement, including Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Obama Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and DSA icon Dolores Huerta, in a ceremony in Keene, California, where Chavez’s former home was officially designated a national monument.
