Drop Dobbs: illegal activity-supporting racial power groups and far-left want Lou Dobbs off CNN

A coalition of illegal immigration-supporting far-left and/or racial power groups has launched a campaign called "Drop Dobbs" to get advertisers to pull their ads from CNN's Lou Dobbs show (dropdobbs.com, mediamatters.org/blog/200909150031): "...The effort aims to let companies know that their continued financial support of CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight makes them complicit in the hate speech and wild conspiracy theories that he promotes..."

Campaigns like this - following on the heels of the somewhat successful similar campaign against Glenn Beck - stand a greater chance of success given the fact that Dobbs' ratings aren't as high as they once were. What you can do about this is raise awareness about the groups involved and cut them off from support, both financial and ideological.

For instance, help organize a campaign against bills that would fund the NCLR. Or, do something as simple (but too difficult for some) as leaving comments at blog and news postings by or discussing the groups; those comments should have the goal of discrediting those groups or their supporters.

See the following links to the names of the groups involved for our coverage of each group:

* National Council of La Raza (funds extremists, gave award to someone who'd proposed genocide)
* League of United Latin American Citizens (CA chapter thinks U.S.-Mexico border might be invalid)
* Southern Poverty Law Center (misled about hate crime statistics)
* Media Matters for America
* Frank Sharry
* Reform Immigration for America
* Center for New Community
* Hispanic Institute (see below)
* Dolores Huerta Foundation (promoted demographic hegemony, hatred against Republicans)
* National Hispanic Media Coalition
* National Puerto Rican Coalition
* New Democratic Network
* Netroots Nation (from Dailykos and others)
* Voto Latino

UPDATE: Janet Murguia of the NCLR says, among other things (huffingtonpost.com/janet-murguia/join-nclr-and-the-drop-do_b_290584.html):

For two years, I have tried working behind the scenes with CNN to bring some fairness to the relentless bias of CNN programming due to Dobbs' show... The Drop Dobbs coalition is compiling a list of those advertisers supporting the Lou Dobbs show and will be reaching out to educate them about this issue. We recognize that many advertisers may be unaware that FAIR has been designated as a hate group, so we are contacting those companies before publicly releasing the list. However, unless and until Dobbs and CNN disassociate themselves from this hate group, we will be asking advertisers to withhold their support...

UPDATE 2: See also the similar group "Enough is Enough!". Communications for that are being handled by a DNC official; it would be interesting to know to what extent if any the Obama administration is involved in either group. Could someone (perhaps Judicial Watch) file some FOIA requests?

The Hispanic Institute's board is at thehispanicinstitute.net/about/boardofdirectors. In addition to one board member who was with the National Association of Realtors, another is quite interesting:

Anne L. Alonzo recently joined Kraft Foods Global in the new position of Vice President, Global Public Policy... Anne worked as Senior Vice President at the National Foreign Trade Council (NFTC) in Washington, D.C... Anne played an integral role in Congressional passage of the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement and was part of the private sector leadership team promoting passage of the pending U.S. trade agreements with Columbia, Panama, and Peru...

Dolores Huerta. The only UC Regent who does not have a college education, like many of her countrymen. What a stupid uneducated third-world dolt she is.

I've actually met Dolores Huerta. She is dumb as a box of hammers.

The problem with these campaigns is that they have absolutely no chance of silencing Lou Dobbs. CNN knows that Dobbs is a cash cow and that should they lose him, Fox would pick him up so fast that he'd be on the air the next day. This Ahabsian fixation with Dobbs will get the far left supporters of illegal aliens nowhere.

Good luck. Apparently they don't get how TV works: he probably has pretty good ratings and therefore brings in money. Which also means they're aren't as many people as they imagine who find him and his show offensive. This is what happens with these 'minority' shitheads: give 'em an inch and they want a mile.

The far lefties have been claiming that the viewing public does not support Dobbs' immigration coverage or his equally tough criticism of Obama as shown towards Dubya. I suspect that if Dobbs has lost any rating it has been because of CNN's idiotic July and August 24/7 coverage of the Michael Jackson circus. I avoided CNN for almost a month except for Lou for just that reason.
