The newspapers this Wednesday showed TUSD board member Cam Juarez all giddy and applauding next to Dolores Huerta at a meeting filled with establishment Democrats.
Where they at a Rodney Glassman rally you may ask?
While it is true that these two Chican@s would probably have Cesar Chavez turning over in his grave if he knew they were breaking bread with the very Fresno farming families that he used to fast for weeks against, specifically because of pesticide use on migrant farmworkers, now you have the new political-class of Chicanos bowing down to the rich scion of the Britz-Glassman corporation that got busted for spraying their workers and for getting rich off of government subsidies in farm bills while poor people on food stamps get closer to starvation.
That was the year 2010, when Huerta, Grijalva, and Juarez so eagerly endorsed their pesticidal political pal in exchange for political contributions.
It’s all true and it’s all prime examples of selling out to get ahead.
