Here's Some Real Hate Speech for You

Illegal immigration critic demonized and now fired at
"After the 2007 amnesty failed in the Senate, the open borders crowd decided to forego policy debates and turn up to 11 their efforts to demonize their opponents. As part of that strategy, the Southern Poverty Law Center was assigned to designate FAIR a "hate group," La Raza started a "We Can Stop the Hate" campaign, and the new radical-left group America's Voice posted an online election for the "Top Anti-Immigrant Wolf" (vote for me!).

But the chief target of this two-year hate has been Lou Dobbs. The "Drop Dobbs" campaign, to get CNN to fire the only anchor on their network whose show anyone watches, is sponsored by — surprise! — La Raza, the SPLC, Media Matters, LULAC, et al. Last Wednesday, October 21, saw a series of coordinated protests by open-borders groups in cities around the country. The following day, Geraldo Rivera said in a speech that the opponents of amnesty have been "reckless beyond imagining" and that Dobbs in particular "is almost singlehandedly responsible for creating, for being the architect of the young-Latino-as-scapegoat for everything that ails this country."

Well, their efforts are starting to pay off. No, CNN hasn't decided to fire Dobbs (which would cause them to drop behind the Hallmark Channel in viewership). Instead, someone fired a shot at Dobbs's house. As reported today by Fox News (!), a shot was fired on October 5 at Dobbs's home while he and his (Mexican-American) wife were out front; New Jersey State Police took the bullet for analysis.

Whatever you think of Dobbs's schtick, he's always clear that his fulminating is about illegal immigration. He's not even a restrictionist, for heaven's sake, having said a number of times that he favors increased legal immigration. But the open-borders crowd believes — sincerely believes — that there can be no legitimate arguments against amnesty and for enforcement, so anyone taking those positions must, by definition, be evil. This is not a prescription for a healthy policy debate.

The Mexican drug lords / Mafia are probably behind most of this. Open borders for these criminals mean unencumbered supply chains into the USA. The dupes at the SPLC do not have a clue.

This act of terrorism only serves to make the points Mr. Dobbs has been making even stronger. He is of course, right, which is why he was targeted. As i've said before, he's the only honest commentator on TV, and yes, that includes the clowns at Fox.

It's also interesting to see "Geraldo Rivera", (real name Gerald Rivers, a jew) join his fellow Marxists in an attack against Dobbs. Isn't he the same Heraldo who's wife was fired some years ago from a TV network for dealing pot at the station? Isn't he the same guy who built a "career" based on lies about everything he gets involved in, like finding Al Capone's hideout?

This highly-organized Marxist attack on Mr. Dobbs, and honest reporting, must not be tolerated. If it is, they will win, and they've only just started to make demand.

Hey J. Birch, I don't think the people at Fox News are clowns, they're entertaining and get to the point quickly. I like Lou Dobs but he's too slow for me. The shows at Fox always feature quick segments, lively discussion, and if a topic bores you it doesn't matter because the next one is coming soon.

As for Geraldo, he's at Fox because Fox News is a fair and balanced network and they need to have a few liberals to counter their conservatives and independents. Besides, the liberals at Fox are a lot nicer than the liberals at CNN and MSNBC.

Regarding the issue at hand, it's quite tragic, the Italian mafia would have never come out against a journalist but the Mexican mafia has no morals. In Mexico being a journalist is one of the deadliest professions you can do.

To paraphrase part of Mark Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny" on illegal immigration:

"Allowing mass immigration from parts of the world that share little in common with the citizenry can change the character of the people every bit as surely as any armed revolution."

Allowing illegal immigration is simply a tool of would-be tyrants to levy predatory war against a country without actual shooting at first, with the intent of fomenting an actual shooting war between the natives and aliens in the hopes that the people will naively turn to the very same government that deliberately and maliciously caused the problem to fix it, surrendering essential liberty in the process.
