Who says activism doesn’t work anymore? In response to unrelenting pressure from a coalition of organizations, the bigoted racist Radical Reactionary flaming idiot Lou Dobbs has been shown the door at CNN and it is about time.
Said CNN-US president John Klein: “With characteristic forthrightness, Lou has now decided to carry the banner of advocacy journalism elsewhere, somewhere far, far from here. We respect his decision, and could not be more delighted to see him gone.” Or words to that effect.
Said Lou Dobbs: “Whaa, whaa; whaa, whaa; whaa whaa.” Or words to that effect.
Among Dobbs’ many hate objects were Latinos, who are jubilant at the news of his retreat. From Roberto Lovato, co-founder of Presente.org, “We are thrilled that Dobbs no longer has the legitimate platform from which to incite fear and hate,” and from Tom Saenz, president of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, “I think the Latino community can and should celebrate that Lou Dobbs is no longer on CNN.”
All people who value decency and fairness can and should celebrate this event. Victory against the forces of Darkness! Feels good; feels real good.
