Lou Dobbs Targeted as Hate Speech Propagandist
Friday May 04th 2007, 6:32 pm

In the mistaken belief the House passed the so-called Hates Crimes Act strictly to go after people who speak out against homosexuals or say mean and hurtful things about other government protected minority groups, consider an effort by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to get CNN anchor Lou Dobbs fired.

“A Jewish group is calling for the firing of an outspoken CNN anchor, Lou Dobbs, after he accused advocates for illegal immigrants of using propaganda techniques employed by Nazi Germany,” reports the New York Sun. “Mr. Dobbs has crossed the line between responsible television commentary and hate-speech propaganda of his own. Keeping him on the air is essentially sanctioning by CNN—which is why we’re asking CNN to remove Dobbs from his very public platform,” complained Gideon Aronoff. “Comparisons to Nazis—especially in this day and age—are abhorrent.”

On the other hand, it is perfectly legitimate to compare Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Hitler and the Iranian government to a gaggle of Nazis. Dobbs made the mistake of saying something hurtful—never mind the truth of his statement—against a government protected minority group.

It is no mistake Mr. Aronoff used the words “hate-speech propaganda” in his denunciation. Indeed, in the weeks ahead, as the Senate passes the “Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act,” also called the “Gay Hate Bill,” we can expect additional targets to come under attack for the egregious crime of speaking their minds. Prosecuting preachers and Christians opposed to homosexuality is but the useful veneer of this draconian legislation, as the government, of course, does not give a whit about the supposed rights of homosexuals—or, in fact, the rights anybody but a small number of bankers and transnational corporations.

Moreover, it stands to reason CNN “has removed a link from its Web site to an organization that is raising money to fight illegal immigration,” lest the easily insulted and politically motivated take offense and scream too loud and thus penetrate CNN’s thin skin. It is hardly a coincidence the CNN web site in question is connected to Lou Dobbs, who is reviled by the pro-illegal immigration movement. “An advocacy group, the National Institute for Latino Policy, protested that Dobbs’ on-air advocacy was expanding to include an endorsement of raising money for an organization,” reports the Associated Press. “After getting a letter from the group, CNN chief executive Jim Walton agreed to remove the link, CNN spokeswoman Christa Robinson said Friday.” As to be expected, well before Jim Walton removed the link, he removed any trace of his spine.

Expect prosecutions and witch hunts to commence forthwith, especially against truth tellers.
