Disney KABC Radio in Los Angeles Targets Mexicans

Help STOP Anti-Mexican Hate Radio

Disney KABC Radio in Los Angeles Targets Mexicans


Ernesto Cienfuegos

La Voz de Aztlan

Los Angeles, Alta California - April 29, 2005 - (ACN)

Continuous anti-Mexican hate propaganda by a Disney

owned radio station in Los Angeles has become

intolerable to millions of Mexican-Americans in

Southern California prompting a boycott of its

advertisers. Radio KABC 790 AM's constant day and

night tirade against Mexican immigrants,

Mexican-Americans and other Latinos has many citizens

of Mexican descent worried that the radio station may

cause more serious ethnic conflicts and hate crimes

in the area. The Los Angeles region has recently

experienced three race related riots at local high

schools and four separate and unsolved shootings on

the area's freeways by unknown assailants that some

experts believe may be race related.

The constant and vicious hate rhetoric against

Mexicans by the various talk show xenophobes at KABC

has prompted the formation of the "STOP Anti-Mexican

Hate Radio Coalition" which is calling for a boycott

of the products and services of those businesses that

advertise on KABC radio. The coalition has collected

a list of most of the businesses that advertise on

KABC along with their toll free telephone numbers.

The list is published at "KABC ADVERTISERS" . The

coalition is asking the community to call the

businesses on the list to express concern that the

hate propaganda against Mexicans on KABC radio may

result in more hate crimes and murders of Mexicans,

Mexican-Americans and other Latinos. The coalition is

asking the community to emphasise to the businesses

that they will be boycotted until they stop

supporting anti-Mexican radio programming at KABC.

There is no question that constant ethnic hate

mongering over the airwaves can have dire

consequences for those groups that are targeted. A

perfect recent example is what occurred during the

Rwandan genocide of 1994 when a radio station calling

itself "Voice of the Patriot" and another called

"Radio Mille Collines" instigated the massacre of

tens of thousands of Africans. Here in the USA, hate

mongering against Afro-Americans has resulted in a

series of horrific hate crime against the group. Just

this morning, for example, a vicious radio talk jock

by the name of Bill Handel said something over the

airwaves that should infuriate every Afro-American in

Los Angeles. Handel, angry that Police Chief William

J. Bratton may take action against the cop that beat

a Black man with a flashlight said, " the cop should

have parked his flashlight up his anus!" Any

Afro-American group wishing more details on the

commentary of Bill Handel should contact La Voz de

Aztlan at

The Mexican immigrant community has already suffered

a series of unsolved hate crimes due, in large

measure, to the hostile anti-Mexican environment

created by hate radio. Among these is the

cold-blooded bludgeoning to death of a Mexican mother

and daughter in Fremont, California on February of

2004. Another heinous hate crime occurred in

Baltimore, Maryland on May, 2004 when three Mexican

children were decapitated. Yet another recent case

occurred last September in Columbus, Ohio when ten

Mexican immigrants were burned to death when

arsonists set their rented apartment building on fire.

None of these cases, nor many others in prior years,

have been solved by police authorities. La Voz de

Aztlan published a report on these hate crimes titled

"Heinous hate murders of undocumented Mexican

immigrants on the rise" at

The "demonization" of Mexican immigrants and

Mexican-Americans by KABC radio is having extremely

detrimental affects in our quality of life and we

should not stand idle by and take it. There is a very

effective way to fight back against the bigots at

KABC. Radio stations depend on advertising dollars to

survive. Cut their advertising and they die.

Advertisers in turn depend on customers and can not

afford negative publicity. A few hundred calls to a

KABC advertiser would be enough for them to drop KABC.

Businesses in the Los Angeles area know that Mexican

immigrants, Mexican-Americans and other Latinos now

make a large percentage of all consumers in the area.

The advertisers can not afford to antagonize this

large and growing segment of the market. The list of

advertisers along with their toll free telephone

numbers is published at "KABC ADVERTISERS". The

"STOP Anti-Mexican Hate Radio Coalition" suggests

that you refer to the "Talking Points" at when

speaking with the advertisers.

Disney's KABC Hate Talk Radio is on the 790 AM

frequency channel. It features five talk jocks who

hold extremely prejudiced views of Mexicans. The

worst of these anti-Mexican xenophobes are Doug

McIntyre, Bill O'reilly, Al Rantel, Sean Hannity and

Larry Elder They all support the Minutemen border

vigilantes and have given Chris Simcox, an Arizona

criminal, an exorbitant amount of air time to

propagandise and to recruit vigilantes. Al Rantel has

undertaken a fundraising campaign for the Minutemen

utilizing the Disney owned radio station. Sean

Hannity joined Chris Simcox at the Arizona/Mexico

border to lend support to the vigilantes through the

radio station. Indirectly, it is the advertisers that

are paying for the airtime that is being used to

demonize Mexicans.

There are many other anti-Mexican hate talk jocks at

other radio stations. The "STOP Anti-Mexican Hate

Radio Coalition" wants to focus on one of the worst

and use KABC 790 AM - Los Angeles as an example and

warning to the others. If the coalition is successful

in stopping anti-Mexican programming at KABC, other

stations will surely take notice. La Voz de Aztlan

encourages our readership to join and help the "STOP

Anti-Mexican Hate Radio Coalition". Go to the list at

"KABC ADVERTISERS" and start calling the advertisers

through their toll free telephone numbers. E-mail the

list to others in your network and ask them to do the

same. The Internet is a powerful tool with yet

untapped potential to do good. Help STOP the vile

bigots at KABC hate radio! Call at least five of the

advertisers per day during regular business hours.
