Politicians, Pundits, and Other People

Lech Walesa

Earlier this year right-wing ideologues Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh burned up the airways with excerpts from an interview by former Polish President Lech Walesa, arguing the co-founder of the Solidarity movement and anti-Communism crusader was warning that President Obama was leading the U.S. into the shackles of socialism.

It turns out Beck and Limbaugh were merely manipulating the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s words. Classy! Here in a recent interview with VICE’s Eddy Moretti, Walesa sets the record straight. Turns out he was merely being used by the right-wing pundits for their own propaganda and actually considers Obama a leader of world reform.
