President Barack Obama’s delusions of grandeur, his Constitutional misconceptions and his petty racial politics mesh seamlessly in this recently uncovered letter, sent from the White House to an unknown number of recipients for rather dubious reasons.
In the letter, which bears the presidential seal and signature, Obama sings high-minded paeans to Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, but reserves his highest laudation for Cesar Estrada Chavez, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) and apotheosized of the American progressive movement.
To honor Chavez’s pursuit of social justice, our 44th President writes,
“NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by the virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2012 as Cesar Chavez Day.”
