Lou Dobbs is Fucking Annoying

I was watching CNN today when that idiotic blowhard Lou Dobbs came on crowing about Barack Obama pandering because of a recent statement he made. Obama's statement basically said that people like Rush Limbaugh and Lou Dobbs who are outspoken on "illegal immigration" are wrong. Obama used the phrase "send 'em back" and Dobbs then rambled on about having never used that phrase.

So what? Dobbs is a blowhard who uses his public venue to spew hatred against immigrants. The point is not whether Dobbs used any particular phrase, but about the arguments he makes. But, of course, a blowhard will always nitpick wording. Obama's point is accurate. And I hope he continues to make it. For two reasons:

1. He is right
2. I'd like to watch Lou Dobbs head explode

Agreed on both points.

Blowhard is too kind, csm. The guy is masking bigotry with the "rule of law". When are people going to realize the more laws we make the more freedom we lose. And in addition, the more laws we make the better chance we make bad laws. This is the case here. It is shameful this country forgets history(even our own), disregards world demographics and that we don't have a real sense of other's motivations good or bad. Selfishness doesn't come close to covering it. Blindness, maybe.

Taking things in a different tangent for a moment, but still dealing with First Amendment issues is the problem with the worst of the papparazi. Any goon can get a camera, go trespassing on private property, block traffic, and whatnot, while hiding behind the First Amendment. I'm not talking about the respectable, reasonable photogs out there, just the predatory goons.

Lou Dobbs has NEVER said send them back, furthermore he is not racist. He is against ILLEGAL ALIENS living here illegally. Hence people who broke the law to come here and continue to break it by staying here!


PS Last I checked illegal aliens weren't a race.

Yes, yes they do. Everyone who wants boarders secured and the laws eforced in a racist. The winds are picking up in here.

Anonymous nice catch!

You guys are great. I never called Dobbs a racist; I called him a bigot. The difference may be too small for you guys to pick up, but there is a difference nontheless.

And who is the bigger patriot? The party who will defend terrible laws to the ends of the earth or the party who would defend individual freedom for ALL mankind. How would the Founding Fathers answer that? Think about it!

while i do find lou dobbs' methods and mentality rather revolting, and have 4 some time, i think he's one of many. cable news in general is plain awful. the amount of pandering and groveling 4 marketshare! da horror!!

yeah, that's why i got rid of my cable tv. i can get all my news online without the bias.

and, 2 a nanny mouse and chris,
do you guys even read the posts b4 you respond??

everyone wants the boarders secured, YESTERDAY. not everyone agrees on what 2 do with the illegals that are already here.

the folks that do want 2 "send em back" have grown loud and obnoxious, and are completely caught up in the purported righteousness of their cause, so much so that they turn a blind eye 2 the fact that they are being played. the right wing needs xenophobia, hate and fear. and gay bashing has gotten some bad press lately, so dust off the ol immigrant bashing agenda and voila! we have sufficient voter motivation in the republican rank & file 2 ATTEMPT a defense against barack "change" obama.

nice catch, indeed.

uhm, i guess that's spelled borders, and not boarders.
i can just see all the skateboarders ganging up on me in a huge misunderstanding... ;)
