Bigot, panicking, plays the victim

Pompous douche Lou Dobbs has had it up to his lying fat neck with those slovenly America-hating brown illegals who are threatening his cushy job -- in another language!!!!

Faced with a growing movement of communities demanding that CNN drop his program, Lou Dobbs responded Friday with one of his favorite postures: the victimized defender of American virtue.

"They ask CNN to fire me because I oppose illegal immigration" lied Dobbs, who added, lying, "The last thing they want is a first amendment, where people can express themselves... These are the most un-American, frightened people in the world because they won't compete in the marketplace of ideas and facts."

While the movement to stop Dobbs has nothing to do with Dobbs' free speech rights, it has everything to do with CNN's business. Latinos across the country are letting CNN President Jon Klein know that if he wants our viewership, he can't keep profiting from the fear and xenophobia that is Dobbs' daily bread. By continuing to air Dobbs, CNN is making a choice: to distort rational debate about immigration and other issues of concern to Latinos. And that choice will come at a cost: legitimacy in the Latino market.

The growing movement against Dobbs also sends a broader message to CNN, and to all of the news media. For democracy to work, free speech cannot mean that news anchors offer wild opinions unfettered from fact.
