Biden’s Cesar Chavez bust in the Oval Office signals a new era for Latinos, activists hope: ‘It shows that he’s authentic’

I can think of few things that more perfectly symbolize what the Democrats are about than Biden’s placing a bust of Cesar Chavez in the Oval Office (supposedly in the place of Winston Churchill) while recognizing Juan Gaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela. Of course, the Ben Shapiro-Charlie Kirk Axis of Idiocy is claiming this is proof of Biden’s incipient Bolshevism. Yeah, he’s a regular Allende. Essentially, we’ve replaced one moderate Republican with another.

Paul Chavez was watching TV coverage of President Biden’s first address from the Oval Office on Wednesday when he suddenly recognized the sculpture right behind him.

It was his father.

The 22-inch-tall bronze bust of civil rights and farm labor leader Cesar Chavez stood just behind the Resolute Desk, surrounded by portraits of the president and his family.

“We were just as surprised and thrilled as everybody else to see its placement, it was so prominent,” Paul Chavez, 63, told The Washington Post late Wednesday. “We were excited not just because it was a bust of my father, but what it represented. To us, it was an affirmation of the importance and the contributions of our community, immigrants and Latinos.”

  1. Ceasar Chavez was not in favor of open borders and was quite opposed to illegal immigration. He would likely oppose Biden’s immigration agenda and likely have favored Trump’s more restrictionist policies. Irony of ironies.
