The left worships Chavez like he’s a god, in reality he is anything but.

WASHINGTON — President Obama called the late labor leader Cesar Chavez “an American hero” Wednesday at a White House screening of a new movie about the civil rights activist.

The president said Mr. Chavez, who organized migrant workers and farm laborers beginning in the 1950s, was an inspiration because he understood that persistence brings change.

“That is one of the great lessons of his life — we don’t give up the fight,” Mr. Obama said. “No matter how long it takes, no matter how long the odds, we keep on going.”

The late United Farm Workers leader Cesar Chavez was trained by the famous Chicago agitator Saul Alinsky.

He worked closely with Communist Party USA members like Bert Corona and was closely affiliated to the US’ largest Marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America.

Chavez marched under the famous slogan “Si se puede!” – later translated into English to become Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan “Yes we can!”
