Labor Secretary Praises 'Role Model' Socialist

President Obama’s Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, recently spoke at the naming of the Cesar Chavez Auditorium in Washington, D.C. There she praised in glowing terms Dolores Huerta, a socialist co-founder of the United Farm Workers, whom she called “my teacher, my role model, and mi hermana,” a “living legend.” Huerta is also honorary co-chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, and has praised Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez in glowing terms in front of high school students.
