And I don't have as many fans as Glenn Beck, as of yet.
However, I've certainly learned how to play his game.
On the chalk board in your mind's eye, I'm writing this name: Eliseo Medina. Do you know who he is ?
Eliseo Medina is the consigliere...er, uh, vice president of SEIU. During the '08 Popularity Contest, Medina was a member of Obama's Latino advisory committee, and after the Media's Selection Process, was appointed to Chairman Obama's "transition committe on immigration". Medina was an intimate of Cesar Chavez and a supporter of the Communist Party paper, Peoples Weekly World and also has ties to the Democratic Socialists of America, a Progressivevik leftist group that also backed Barry The-Not-So-Magnificent's Illinois State Senate run back in '96.
I know what you're saying: A socialist in SEIU is not news. Well, it should be news to you when you consider this little quote from our Dear Leader from a speech he made to SEIU:
"Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating health care, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members. Before IMMIGRATION [emphasis mine] debates in Washington, I talked to Eliseo Medina and SEIU members. Before the EFCA [card check] [debate], I talked to SEIU, we've worked together over these last few years and I am proud of what we've done. I'm just not satisfied."
What's truly worrisome about this is the fact that Medina is not just some boring leftist like Elena Kagan. This guy is a Top Comrade in the socialist world. In 2004, Medina was made an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. He's also won the Debs-Thomas-Harrington Award as DSA's favorite leftist. (It's sort of like their version of a Super Bowl MVP award.)
Out of healthy and normal curiosity, why isn't this guy on some sort of FBI watchlist ? Why would any American President ever acknowledge any sort of ties to someone this loathsome ? Why would an avowed socialist be advising a sitting US President on anything ?
Well, it could be the fact that commies of the same hammer and sickle feather flock together. As everyone's favorite Right Wing cartoon character, Glenn Beck, would say: "Just sayin'".
Here's another question: If SEIU is a union, why would they not be fighting tooth and nail against amnesty for illegal aliens ? After all, illegals cost American workers their jobs, right ? If SEIU was an actual union, they'd be holding hands with Arizona governor Jan Brewer as she signed the Arizona Immigration Bill into law. A normal, American, union (an oxymoron, I know, but play along with me here.) would put the Conservatives to shame with their support of this law. But not SEIU. No siree, not on your life or mine. Medina writes on the DSA blog on May 1st:
"As the eyes of the world focus on Arizona, it is clear that we need balanced, practical immigration solutions more than ever. While SEIU appreciates the leadership of Senators Schumer, Menendez and Reid, we are deeply concerned with elements of their reform outline that appear to put enforcement-only mandates ahead of the practical immigration solutions that America needs.
If we have learned anything from Arizona, it is that 'tough' enforcement is not 'smart' enforcement; that enforcement first is really just the same as enforcement only. Instead of fixing the underlying problems, putting enforcement before comprehensive reform just wastes over $18 billion a year on border walls and worksite round ups; it wreaks havoc in local communities and leads to the kind of racial profiling our nation left behind years ago, but solves nothing...."
What in the hell does that have to do with representing workers ? If I were a member of SEIU, I'd demand my dues back. It's fairly obvious that SEIU couldn't give a rat's hind quaters about the workers they "represent". It seems to me, and anyone else not caught up in the two plus two make five mentality of the Progressivevik movement, that SEIU is nothing more than Illuminati-like socialist group. They want amnesty so they can recruit more members and increase their power base. Again, so there's no misunderstanding whatsoever, the above was penned by Eliseo Medina, SEIU's Vice President on a socialist website. Way to fight for American workers, Eliseo!
I see you need more proof. Fine by me. Let's take a look at what "former" Reichsfuhrer-SEIU Andy Stern had to say about increasing SEIU's power base:
"And we are beginning -- we have offices now in Australia and Switzerland and London, in South America and Africa. We've been working with unions around the world. And what we're working towards is building a global organization. Because comp-- you know, workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore. It's the way we're going to have to do our work." This is Andy Stern's most famous quote, and incidently Karl Marx's most famous quote. The Soviets loved it so much they made it the State Motto of the USSR.
(As a side note, Ol' Andy has supposedly left SEIU. However, socialists, like cockroaches, don't just go away. Stern is a member of Chairman Obama's deficit reduction task force that will not release its findings until after the midterm elections. Nothing to see here, citizen. Move along, move along.)
Folks, we are in deep, deep trouble. There is way more than meets the eye in this immigration hubbaloo. This is about world government and the end of our national sovereignty. Why would socialists like Chairman Obama, Eliseo Medina, and Andy Stern fight to the last man against the Arizona Immigration Law ? They're citizens of the world first, Americans second. At least we can get rid of Obama in '12. How do we get rid of these shadow-commies ?
God help us all.
