Like clockwork, Dems make Labor Day about socialism

Monday signifies the federal Labor Day holiday, celebrating working people and the fight at the turn of the last century for humane, fair working conditions. This seemingly non-political holiday to celebrate the working man and woman, of course, had to be seized by left-wing radicals to promote socialism via modern unions and initiatives that work hard to put as much government into private industry as possible.

Democrat Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, who previously failed to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020, claims Labor Day is meant to “celebrate our unions who ensure that every worker – regardless of what you make, what you look like, how you pray, who you love, or how you identify – has the rights, benefits, standards, and opportunity we deserve.”

She then continued to tout socialist policies, such as a guaranteed living wage, universal health care, and other government-funded programs, while erroneously claiming there is an attack on the right to vote. 

“Every one of us deserves a living wage, access to healthcare, good benefits, adequate working conditions, and easy access to the ballot box,” she wrote. 

Democrat Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez of New Mexico’s Third Congressional District took time on Monday to tout extremist labor leader Dolores Huerta, who said that babies in the womb do not have souls. 

Huerta previously said in 2021 to promote abortions, “I know that the child has no soul until they are born. Right?” 

Leger Fernandez wrote on Labor Day, “Today, we honor working Americans — and the unions and labor movement that gave us the five day work week and moved our nation forward over the decades. As one of my personal heroes, Dolores Huerta, once said: ‘Honor the hands that harvest your crops.’” 

Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham shared a video on Labor Day with clips of her posing alongside Huerta while touting organized labor. She did not mention, however, that she has killed over 40% of small businesses in the state due to her brutal pandemic lockdown. 

She wrote to tout unions, “When unions exist, everything gets better. Thank you, New Mexico Labor.”

In a subsequent tweet, she promoted socialist policies, writing, “Without your organizing, we would never have achieved paid sick leave, accessible child care, a higher minimum wage, or many other policies that protect working people’s interests.”  

Other far-left politicians, such as Rep. Melanie Stansbury (NM-CD-01), Democrat Second Congressional District candidate Gabe Vasquez, and others, wrote similar sentiments online, trying to tie Labor Day with socialist policies.

  1. God bless American and God bless unions. Happy labor day all. Better work conditions, humane hours, stronger political voice for or the worker, keeping the trades strong, weekends among other things. Thank labor unions!

    1. Hooray for the New Mexico Teacher Unions! Worse education stats in the country! Way to go! 🙄
      Highest unemployment rate! Wahoo! 🙄
      Called a terrorist if you voice your political views! Yay! 🙄
      Party on dude, and enjoy your socialism! 😂

  2. Who should have to pay union dues when the liberal socialists promise to give you everything?
    Too many corrupt union bosses, in any case.

    1. No corrupt CEOs of course… at least they don’t promise their workers anything except a political lobby to lower taxes on the wealthy.

  3. MLG is just parroting Communist Russia’s celebration of its working class. The Soviet Union’s Labor day was
    held on May 1 ( May Day). It was a day to honor socialism and bash capitalism. Sound familiar?

    1. Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. – @Dept of Labor

      An objective treatment of its origins that does not defer to the “Uber conservative” leanings of the Federalist Society and/or Bill Federer can be found here.

      BTW “Labor Union” is NOT synonymous with “Socialism” and “Capitalism” is not synonymous with “Freedom”.

  4. The old Soviet Union held its Labor Day in May 1( May 1) to honor the working class proletariat. In communist Russia, Labor Day celebrates socialism while bashing capitalism. Sound familiar?
