Disgusting: Navy Names New Ship The USS Cesar Chavez [Updated Below]

20 May 2011 @ 09:57

I received this DOD News press release on Wednesday:

Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced today the selection of the USNS Cesar Chavez as the 14th Lewis and Clark class of dry cargo/ammunition ships.

Continuing the Lewis and Clark-class tradition of honoring legendary pioneers and explorers, the Navy’s newest underway replenishment ship honors the memory of Mexican-American civil rights activist Cesar Chavez. Chavez served in the Navy from 1944-1946 after which he became a leader in the American Labor Movement and a civil rights activist who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers.

“Cesar Chavez inspired young Americans to do what is right and what is necessary to protect our freedoms and our country,” said Mabus. “The Cesar Chavez will sail hundreds of thousands of miles and will bring support and assistance to thousands upon thousands of people. His example will live on in this great ship.”

Some of you may not know who Chavez was. I’ll let Matthew Vadum explain:

Incredibly, the U.S. Navy has decided to name a cargo ship after the guy who came up with the Obama campaign slogan, “Yes, we can!” That man is the late labor agitator and community organizer Cesar Chavez. Chavez’s union, the United Farm Workers, used the saying he coined as its official motto. (In Spanish, “¡Sí se puede!”)

The decision to name a Navy ship after this radical is remarkable not only because President Obama’s teleprompter has the phrase “Yes, we can!” burnt into it from the phrase’s overuse, but because the far-left leader was a disciple of communist sympathizer Saul Alinsky. Chavez, who died in 1993, worked for the Community Service Organization from 1952 to 1962. CSO was a pressure group created by Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation.

Chavez has been lionized by the left because he hated capitalism and shared Alinsky’s contempt for the American system. The man even sounded like Alinsky, insisting he loved America while working to undermine its institutions….

Mr. Vadum has much more here on who this Marxist was.

And I can’t beat his final paragraph:

Is it just a matter of time before the Obama administration commissions the USS Saul Alinsky? No doubt it will be a destroyer.

What can one say? Barack Hussein Obama is a menace and must be denied re-election at all costs. To name a ship in honor of a Communist who hated everything the U.S. Armed Forces stands and fights for is the height of disgusting behavior.

It is an act of Moral Treason.


SIDENOTE: Mabus, as a young man, served in the Navy. I believe ‘Mabus’ is French for ‘Judas’.

UPDATE at 1919…

-Dame Maggie helps fill-in more details here [thanks for the link, m’lady].

-Don Chris, head of the Wysocki Family, links and has a fitting suggestion for another ship name.

    Well it seems that fellow community organizers who worship at the altar of Saul Alinsky stick together. The community organizing playbook is Alinsky’s book “rules for radicals” which was dedicated to Satan so the disgusting evil that Obama and his cronies spread is no surprise.

    When Barry gives California back to Mexico (return to the 1767 borders!) he can throw in this garbage scow to jump-start their navy.

    Tere: Our battle to restore our freedoms and liberties is ultimately a battle against the evil force in this country.

    Chris: One of the things that a Republican President must do, on 20 January 2013, is issue an EO to change the name of that ship. [thanks for the link]

    Well, it isn’t nearly as bad a the USS John Murtha (They could have at least had the good grace to name it after his hometown/county like every other ship in it’s class).

    I can think of only two possible presidential candidates strong and sensible enough to change the name of this USNS – both are women.

    Bob, great article and thanks much for the link.
