Beck: “This guy (President Obama), is, I believe, a racist.”
Dobbs: “And there’s Van Jones saying, “Well, you know, you said something I don’t like, so what are we gonna do? We’ll just attack your sponsors.” That didn’t work out so shiny for him, did it? So, by the way, I gotta say hats off to Glenn Beck for having the guts to stand up to this.”
More commentary, a transcript, and my civil rights friendly boot up Lou Dobbs keister below the fold.
Hood, Lou, you said hat, but you meant hood. If there was any doubt that Lou Dobbs does his radio show in full Bedsheet and Hood regalia, let those doubt live no longer.
First, the transcript.
DOBBS: They didn’t mention any of the good things like going after — going after Glenn Beck. See, it was Van Jones’ group that got the bright idea to go after his sponsors because Glenn Beck said some things that he didn’t like. Isn’t that impressive? And I didn’t hear — I didn’t hear Howard Dean get excited about that, trampling all over the First Amendment trying to coerce sponsors of Glenn Beck just because he had the guts to say what he meant. You know, there’s a shortage of that. That ought to be encouraged. You know, Authur Laffer is a guy who said we should be taxing what we don’t want in this society and subsidizing that which we do. And there’s Van Jones saying, “Well, you know, you said something I don’t like, so what are we gonna do? We’ll just attack your sponsors.” That didn’t work out so shiny for him, did it? So, by the way, I gotta say hats off to Glenn Beck for having the guts to stand up to this — this morass of mediocrity and pure, pure ideology.
Oh, by the way, Lou, Glenn didn’t stand up to shit. He didn’t defend his statement that “Obama is a racist”, he didn’t stand up to Van Jones for this boycott, he called him a communist and did a hack job on him. I say, in the interest of all fairness, we do the same to these two clowns, though, as Keith Olbermann proved last night, what worse thing can you call idiotic race baiters suchj as these than who they are Glenn “Tin Fil” Beck and “The King of the Birthers” Lou Dobbs.
Now coming to Fox News, a corporation for Right Wing propaganda.
I often choose to expose Right Wing Media and Pundits whenever possible. I feel that the best way to fight bullies is by fighting bullies. I know, for many it seems to be a novel concept.
To those who say we are better off ignoring Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs and their ilk than exposing them, to those who claim that by debunking their drivel we give them free publicity, I offer this statement by HBO comedian Bill Maher on the subject and my own word of advice.
Maher: “It is so important that we, the few, the proud, the reality based, attack this stuff before it has a chance to fester and spread. This is not a case of Democrats versus Republicans, it is sentient beings versus the Lizard People. And it is to the Lizard People that I offer this deal, I will show you President Obama’s birth certificate when you show me Sarah Palin’s high school diploma.”
You do NOT BACK DOWN to bullies. Backing doown ONLY ENCOURAGES THEM. You do not try to debate teh stupid. You call it stupid, mock it, debunk it and dismiss the idiot who brought it up, and you remind them of it every chance you get.
Now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, let’s get back to the matter at hand.
Of course, the fact that the King of the Birthers, anti immigrant activist and Conspiracy Theorist extraordinaire Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck have a mutual enemy in ColorOfChange.org, which has an action page calling for CNN to fire Dobbs over his continued support of the Birther movement that seeks to paint President Obama as a Kenyan, and thus as an illegal immigrant, should not be lost on anyone.
Apparently, being the King of the Birthers wasn’t enough for Lou. He had to come to the rescue of the embarrasingly paranoid, stupid and vitriolic Prince of hair brained conspiracies, Glenn “Tin Foil” Beck. And why? Because Glenn stood up to a boycott he damn well deserved for spouting hateful rhetoric that sought to turn one ethnic group against another. Glenn engaged in race baiting by claiming that President Obama, whose own mother and grandmother are caucasian, has a “deep seeded hatred of white people”
And when a boycott was launched to punish the airing of such hateful, misinformed views, Lou Dobbs decided to take a stand for hateful, misinformed views.
Lou Dobbs, in this action, has offered a de facto endorsement of the notion that President Obama “is a racist who hates white people”
And for that, Lou has to pay.
Lou Dobbs IS Officially the Glenn Beck of CNN. If he didn’t think his rating could sink any lower, if his producers didn’t think he could damage the credibility of CNN anymore, wait until they get a load of how America will react to this.
Therefore, I suggest we give Lou a little of the same medicine.
In this action, Lou Dobbs has gone beyond his usual agenda of attacking all things immigrant or giving credibility to the Alex Jones NWO crowd, Lou has decided that he will take the side of the race baiters. Mr Independant is now Mr. Glenn Beck’s foot soldier. He has literally made himself the White Knight who will ride to Glenn Beck’s defense.
The irony should not be lost on anyone.
Lou Dobbs, much like other Right Wing nutbags, seems to have “broke his brain” when Barack Obama, a man who clearly must hate white people just by the look of him, won the Presidential election by a majority of voters to whom race clearly did not matter as much as substance.
A concept such as substance over appearance is clearly lost on the likes of Dobbs or Beck because the only substance Beck and Dobbs are made of could be used to fertilize an organic garden.
So I offer my congradulations to Lou Dobbs and his new BFF Glenn Beck. You have just proved that CNN IS not Fox lite, CNN is Fox in a bottle, where as Fox is just Fox on tap.
The next step, in my opinion, is where We The People of the Pro Civil rights movement take this. I say we give Lou Dobbs the same treatment we gave Glenn Beck. They love and admire each other soooo much, it just seems like we should treat them as equals.
Equals who, when added up, amouunt to as much as putting 2 gallons of bat shit in a 10 gallon hat.
Oh, and Lou, from now on, when you end your radio show or your TV show, just end it by shouting “WHITE POWER! WHITE POWER! WHITE POWER!”
It’ll match the White Robe and Hood that your listeners can’t see through the radio, but can hear in your repeated calls for racial purity in America.
Let’s give both these schmucks what for.
