Lou Dobbs: Self Interested Demagoguery
One who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain ratings
NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO TAKE LOU DOBBS OFF THE AIR KICKS OFF MAY 1
Why AOL? Lou Dobbs is the number one money maker for CNN so he is not going anywhere as long as he makes money for CNN and right now he is making a ton of money for CNN bashing "illegal immigration."
CNN is owned by Time Warner and Time Warner also owns AOL which is being extensively promoted to increase its value as witnessed last week by selling 5% of AOL stock to Google. This 5% cost Google $1 Billion setting a benchmark value for AOL stock.
The Google-AOL deal gives AOL a valuation of $20 billion.
Billionaire Time Warner shareholder Carl Icahn who controls 3 percent of Time Warner shares has been organizing a proxy battle for control of Time Warner wants to sell AOL.
We could never directly muzzle Lou Dobbs because the revenue his trashing of Hispanic/Latinos generates for CNN is huge and CNN's revenue belongs to Time Warner.
The Achilles heel is AOL. If the value of AOL was to decrease dramatically because of the loss of the Hispanic/Latino market, Time Warner, and more so, Carl Icahn, would move to stop this hemorrhage. The only way to stop the hemorrhage would be to meet the demands of the Hispanic/Latino community: Remove Lou Dobbs off the Air.
Why is this so important?
The marches, rallies, and protests have been instrumental in the Senate Judiciary Committee's adoption of the McCain Kennedy Immigration Reform proposal and its submission to the Senate for debate. The monumental protests have been heard in Washington and around the USA.
As monumental as the protests have energized the Hispanic community, the protests will not take immigration over the top as witnessed by the Senate failing to approve immigration reform.
Time now for a reality check: The US Senate debated immigration reform but the Senate votes to adopt the Kennedy McCain proposal were simply not there!
Something else now needs to be added to the protests to take us to the next level if we are going to realize immigration reform as Hispanics favor.
Lou Dobbs has become the champion zealot of bashing "illegal immigration" each night at CNN promoting HR 4437 as the only way of dealing with "Broken Borders" to protect the USA. The only way to stop Lou Dobbs, the raving populist xenophobe, is to invoke "The Achilles heel: AOL."
The number of AOL subscribers is around 30 million. Many of these are US Hispanics, in addition, AOL has a growing percentage of Latin America accounts among new users. To increase market share, AOL is being marketed to the Hispanic/Latino internet community for its ease of use. There are other internet companies that are even easier to use, have faster speeds, and are less expensive. With a national Ax AOL campaign especially among our savvy youth with their ever increasing use of text messaging, IM, and Internet, if Hispanics would drop AOL and move in droves to other internet providers, significant pressure would result causing owners of AOL to realize the only way to re-capture market share would be to remove CNN's Lou Dobbs.
Removing Lou Dobbs off the air would completely disarm the national leader of promoting HR 4437 and would be the most powerful message that could be provided to the Congress, President Bush, 2008 presidential candidates and the entire USA. The demise of Lou Dobbs would be fatal. There would be nowhere for him to land because wherever he surfaced such as FOX, the Ax AOL campaign would follow him by simply changing our name to Ax FOX.
If CNN does not remove Lou Dobbs, we will move to escalate to boycott all CNN corporate sponsors beginning with sponsors of CNN en Espanol. We are approaching $1 Trillion in annual Hispanic purchasing. This is the real strength of Hispanic power.
Hispanic News on April 11 published a new website AxAOL.com which will become the vehicle for getting the message out throughout the USA to boycott AOL.
The Ax AOL Message Center is user friendly and allows for anyone to post a message or a comment. Presently there is no USA website that is coordinating marches, rallies or protests and AxAOL.com could become this vehicle for anyone to post what is happening in their community and to get messages out to everyone in the USA.
To promote Ax AOL throughout the USA, Hispanic News is now selling advertising using Sponsored Links. Buy an ad if you own a business or as an individual use your name. The ads are $299 but donations are welcomed for any amount. Help us make change in the USA by working together to remove Lou Dobbs off the air at CNN. Buying Ax AOL t-shirts is expensive. Hispanic News can not do this by ourselves.
You can also help by emailing everyone in your address book informing them using AOL indirectly pays Lou Dobbs' salary.
Beginning May 1, the next level of marches, rallies, protests will now include Ax AOL. The red Ax AOL t-shirts will become part of the protests. Spread the word that anyone who uses AOL is subsidizing Lou Dobbs' promotion of HR 4437's criminalizing immigrants and anyone who helps them.
Wow! Lou Dobbs did all that?
Where can I send him Champagne and money?
Thank you Lou!
Screw all the illegal trespassers, thugs, criminals, traitors and ingrates.
Yes! Go Lou go! Get them SOB's! Lou is 'da Man!
The irony is delicious.
A bunch of illegals are going to switch internet providers away from AOL to something else in order to register their unhappiness with Lou Dobbs.
The jokes write themselves.

Lou Dobbs at the border with Minute Men
I hate CNN, but I support Lou Dobbs on his border rant, he is relentless.
Lou and Minute Men
Lou deserves an Emmy. Of course, he won't get one. But I love the guy's courage, something lacking at CNN.
Pity Fox doesn't have anyone as articulate or well informed (aside from Cavuto and Hume, of course).
A good example of that same mentality is the woman prof at the U of K.
But Dobbs is all CNN's got, and they're not about to can him. If anything, a campaign against him will do nothing but bolster and even drive up his ratings.
I agree with you. Lou Dobbs deserves an Emmy.
I never used to watch his show because of his uneven views on Conservatives.
Because he is doing the job that our sorry political leaders
will not do, I fully support him. He cannot do enough Immigrant Bashing for me....give them hell, Lou!
I've loved Lou Dobbs since the day he and Milton Friedman advised the U.S. to get out of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. That's guts!
I used to watch Fox. I now occasionally watch Lou Dobbs and every time I watch he is hammering on the things that need to be hammered on, such as securing our borders and the need to use the word illegal as opposed to all the other pander bear language embraced by two party NWO gangs.
He's 100% right on the offshoring issue, but I wouldn't expect the globalist free traitors to admit to it.
I'm a fan already.
