Hear-Hear AZ. You are so right. But of course, the open borders and pro-illegal crowd, and never forget about the people who just like to start trouble, all want globalism and they wish to see our country become a socialistic and PC nation, where we will have no real rights and/or freedoms.

I posted a link, I didn't create the link...just do a search for "Lou Dobbs Cotton Picker" on Google watch the results appear.

Here you are, I know it is hard to believe but I didn't create all of this content:

First, I didn't bring up his Mexican wife, someone else did (as that person always does).

Second, it is well known that White Mexicans have a discriminating history against Indigenous Mexicans. I don't make this stuff up, it is well known.

Many of the Lou Dobbs supporters say "how can he be racist? he is married to a Mexican"...Well like many people in the US, there are many different shades of Mexican and some aren't too friendly of each other.

This is all common knowledge, I was just offering my opinion on why his Mexican wife may not be such a big deal.

I commend Mach50 on his ability to read. If we all did more of that, we wouldn't follow people like Mr. Dobbs as if they were saints.

TV is poisonous to knowledge, understanding, comprehension, and critical thinking. They don't call it an idiot box for nothing.

Analyzing the depiction of race on the Lou Dobbs show is not playing the race card. The phrase "playing the race card" is used to discount any study that analyzes race. Ignoring race is a white man's privilege. Ignoring race benefits the white man. I don't gain anything from doing this, I simply want to know more about how the show depicts race. Thats it. I want to extrapolate an argument from the facts. That's it. There's no "race card" here.

Patriotism is a nationalistic feeling that is rallied up when a nations seeks to go on a killing spree. Read your history. That I can certianly argue and provide evidence for.

Lou Dobbs may be racist. But my goal is to also put that inside a larger social picture of a racist society, whether it be structural, emotional, psychological, or in AZBear's comment. Quotas don't work. Entering the world as a collaborative player does. The US does not exist without the rest of the world, though we act as if we do. Mr Dobbs understands this somewhat, though his solutions are somewhat simplistic. The problem is that building a wall does not stop business from leaving. If we build a wall business will leave quicker than it already is, that is why there is little action in Washington. When that happens, Mr. Dobbs would blame it on immigrants or China when it is our own ignorance that fueled it. I am making an argument, and all of the responses to my argument are in rage without reason. Make an argument for something you support, don't just state it along with some sort of insult.

Seriously if all we have to represent America is a whole bunch of people shouting out ideas without an argument, then how can we expect to ever compete on the global stage?
You really have a lot of nerve calling most everyone here part of "Lou Dobbs' racist minions" at the beginning of THIS post, and then at the end of it saying THIS...
