Probably just Keith Olbermann. I hear he's got a lousy aim, though. Dobbs has nothing to worry about.

I wonder if when the Perps are arrested that they will be arrested for a HATE Crime, as if it was the case of Pro-Illegals (which likely it was) then it is obvious that hate was their motivation..

So now you’re comparing the nutjob and accused murderer, Shawna Forde, to Lou Dobbs? Please. Aren’t you guilty of the same generalization you incessantly accuse others of whenever the IA criminal element is mentioned? I may not agree with him on every issue, but to compare him to her is beyond insane.

Dobbs isn’t that stupid. He has enough sense to know if he is implicated in this, he can kiss his reputation and career goodbye. Furthermore, he doesn’t have to do anything to garner support.

Millions of desperate illegal aliens are living in this country. They will do ANYTHING to remain here and continue to reap the benefits. What reaction would you expect when so-called “immigrant” advocacy groups promulgate venomous anti-Dobbs diatribe?

Dobbs has been forced to hire bodyguards. This is way out of control, and it is only the beginning. If they succeed in “silencing” him and an illegal or supporter is responsible, what excuse will you offer?

Lou Dobbs uses his platform on CNN to spread myths and misinformation about Latinos and immigrants, even as his network is wooing Latino viewers. It’s time we said enough (that’s “basta” in Spanish). Join us in calling on CNN to get rid of Dobbs!

"Lou Dobbs is almost single-handedly responsible for creating, for being the architect of the young Latino as scapegoat for everything that ails this country," Rivera added.

At an event in New York sponsored by the Spanish-language daily, El Diario La Prensa, Rivera described Dobbs as a "hate monger". . .

This Tuesday, my organization, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), joined with several national advocacy organizations to launch the Drop Dobbs campaign, an appeal to advertisers to withhold their advertising support for CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight program. We came to this decision in the wake of Dobbs' participation at an anti-immigrant rally in Washington, DC sponsored by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), an organization designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a hate group.

A coalition of San Antonio social justice groups Wednesday signed on to a national campaign to pressure CNN to drop Lou Dobbs, the controversial anchor of the nightly cable show “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”

While stopping short of calling for an advertiser boycott, the national campaign seeks talks with CNN about what they see as Dobbs' anti-immigrant, anti-Latino rhetoric.

It is time that we put a stop to Lou Dobbs and his lies. He falsified the name of LULAC during his radio show from the FAIR rally calling LULAC a “left wing socio-ethnocentric group,” said LULAC National President Rosa Rosales. “Over the years, Lou Dobbs has consistently used his CNN platform to spread hate and fear. We are asking his sponsors to stop advertising on his show.”

LULAC joined the Drop Dobbs coalition. Other partners include Media Matters for America, National Council of La Raza, Center for Community Change, Center for New Community, Dolores Huerta Foundation, The Hispanic Institute, National Hispanic Media Coalition, National Puerto Rican Coalition, NDN, Southern Poverty Law Center, Reform Immigration for America, Voto Latino, Netroots Nation, LCLAA and America's Voice. The coalition is calling on corporations to drop their advertising on CNN’s Lou Dobbs Tonight until CNN disassociates themselves from Lou Dobbs.

Suffice to say: if Dobbs is murdered and the killer is linked to pro illegal alien apologists-------------there will be hell to pay.

Such a killing could quite possibly endanger innocent 'brown' people anywhere (irrespectve of actual race/ethnicity). As it is; hostility is growing against Hispanics as a group.

Needless to say: I hope to God that cooler heads prevail.

Of course we have no proof that illegals or their supporters were involved but in view of the hate out there against him by these two groups it doesn't suprise me one bit.

That is certainly your prerogative. So, every anti-illegal is a murderer like Shawna Forde. Got it.

He has absolutely nothing to gain, but much to lose, if this is a hoax. Again, I don’t agree with him on every issue, but he is not an idiot.
