And Are Hypocrites Too!

So do you all remember Lou Dobbs? He who made his TV career out of screaming anti-immigrant messages at us from CNN until he was finally given the boot?  Yes?  Sorry to remind you of him... but....

You will remember his BIG ISSUE was that he was not really against the immigrant, after all, the poor little wetback was just trying to get an illegal job.... what he REALLY hated were the people who HIRED THEM... particularly those who claimed to not know that they were hiring illegals....

He virtually foamed at the mouth while attacking "the employer who is so shamelessly exploiting the illegal alien and so shamelessly flouting US law" and even proposing, on one April 2006 show, that "illegal employers who hire illegal aliens" should face felony charges.


According to a new story in The Nation.... yes, you guessed it.... LOU DOBBS had illegals working for him!!!!

check it out....Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper.

A prerequisite for politicians the world over .... S

The Nation article exposing this appears to be well-documented. People may be ideologically opposed to the Nation, but they aren't known for shoddy reporting or fact-finding.<br />

Lou Dobbs is the poster child for hypocrisy.

Yep, that's it exactly, c0w.

Elfie, this is classic. He attacks the attacker rather than acknowledging the truth of the charge.

Bill Clinton was pounced on and so was John Edwards.......... How about Edward Kennedy or John F Kennedy?............... There are many such cases that could be brought up.<br />
Stroller seems to have a case of selective memory

The above comment is quite typical of right-wing double think. First the poster CLAIMS that he is not here to defend either of these hypocrites, (although his avatar is a tea-party flag and one of his only two groups states he is against the President -- right.) THEN he claims (without a shred of evidence to support it) that the "liberal media" (a statement again made with NO SUPPORT -- personally I find the media to be very conservative), is quick to "pounce" on Republicans. <br />
<br />
SINCE WHEN is reporting the facts a POUNCE? <br />
<br />
Then he claims, again without support, that the Democrats are NEVER attacked... oh really? Does this poster perhaps read as many newspapers as Sarah Palin? NONE? I see constant reports of politicians of ALL STRIPES being attacked. Then we note that he swipes at the party of fiscal responsibility, education, social justice and pro-people health care as not standing for anything.<br />
<br />
Personally, I will take the Democrats over the hypocritical right wingers of the Republicans, or the brain-dead tea partiers ANYDAY!

Yes it does....<br />
<br />
But when will the right wingers wake up and realize that all their heroes are either hypocrites or just plain nuts?

Here in California, the Rep candidate for governor, Meg Whitman, who is very anti-immigrant, just got outed for having a undocumented maid for 9 years - and the maid has proof Whitman knew of h er status. Kind of reminds you of the rabid anti-gay folks having homosexual affairs doesn't it?

Aren't they all?
