Immigration Activists Nazis? Time for CNN to say: Adios Lou Dobbs
Lou Dobbs has apparently offended American Jewry by likening San Francisco, CA Mayor, Gavin Newsom and pro-immigrant activists to Nazi Germany Propagandists. Although Dobbs’ likening was to Hermann Goering – who ran the Nazi air force – he apparently meant Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda chief.
In the shadow of Don Imus’ “Nappy Headed Hoes” remark and Michael Richards’ “N” word tirade, the heat is now on CNN’s Lou Dobbs. Dobbs’ racist rantings go beyond anti-immigrant dogma. His comments are often anti-American, as well. Dobbs repeatedly ridicules the U.S. Congress, Senate, Department of Homeland Security and the border Patrol. Although his criticisms may not be anti-American in and of themselves, they seam to be intended to stoke anti-government action by the “patriot” movements that have been somewhat dormant since 911. Dobbs is clearly a pro-nativst movement cheerleader, taking his queue from John Tanton and the Federation for American Immigration Reform. But this time Dobbs may have offended the wrong people. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society has recently called on CNN to axe Dobbs because of his Nazi comparison. Referring to Newsome and immigrant activists Dobbs said: "might as well work for Hermann Goering. I mean, they're running so much propaganda, trying to confuse the debate, the national dialogue, by talking about immigrants rather than illegal aliens and legal immigrants. It's mindless beyond belief."
"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." HIAS President Gideon Aronoff said.
"Comparisons to Nazis, especially in this day and age, are abhorrent" Continued Aronoff. This could signal the beginning of the end for Lou Dobbs. Dobbs’ high and mighty attitude is often bolstered by witty comments emailed in to his show by like minded bigots. But how can acts of humanity by people brave enough to stand up to anti-immigrant mean spiritedness that has divided the country be compared to Nazi Propaganda?
This time Dobbs has gone too far and it’s time for CNN to say: Adios Dobbs!
