One of the things that attracted me to the political left, as a young man, was a belief that leftists were for "the people." Fortunately, I was also very interested in the history of ideas — and years of research in that field repeatedly brought out the inescapable fact that many leading thinkers on the left had only contempt for "the people."
A new film entitled Cesar Chavez, American Hero will invade American theaters this Spring. I’m calling on all patriotic Americans to boycott and picket this piece of Hollywood propaganda trash and give Cesar Chavez the place in American history he actually deserves. Cesar Chavez was a left-wing con artist of the first order. I expect as much honesty from a film based on Hollywood’s version of his life.
