CNN Tried to Legitimize the Klan
CNN President Jonathan Klein
doesn't bring him the spurious figures he needs
to sow racial enmity, Lou Dobbs and CNN now rely
on stats and guests from known Klan fronts and
organizations, such as the Council of
Conservative Citizens, which even Sen. Trent
Lott tried to distance himself from. Here,
in his element, Dobbs delivers a keynote address
on immigration and white power.

Conservative Citizens Flyer on President
Lincoln. Admitted white supremacists and
segregationists: this is the type of group CNN
now appeals to as a credible source of unbiased,
scientific studies. Much like international
terrorists, who form front groups and "religious
charities" to fund their movement, Klan fronts
are created to maintain an illusion of
grassroots sentiment, but are easily discerned
by a consistently parallel agenda with official
Ku Klux Klan platforms and ideology. For
example, both the Minutemen and Klan see the
government as an enemy; both groups support
vigilante justice over federal control of
immigration laws. Indeed, the Klan and
Minutemen are now interwoven militia movements,
the latter with a few token minorities but led
exclusively by white supremacists on a crusade
to preserve America's "racial purity". In other
words, the Minutemen are the armed militia
movement of the Klan.
point of these fronts is to bring legitimacy to
the hated Klan, to make Americans forget their
domestic terrorism from lynchings to church

You have a purchasing power approaching 1.08 trillion in 4 years,
and its up 413 percent from 1990, according to a report by the Selig
Center for Economic Growth at the University of Georgia. Yet you are
the scapegoat of political media assets hoping to divert attention
from the price of gasoline, unchecked Congressional corruption, an
increasingly unpopular and costly war, etc.
You are misled by wealthy television and radio personalities with
stock portfolios in oil and energy, who grow richer every time the
oil companies fuck Americans over. So, attacking what really bothers
and affects most Americans isn't in the interest of these media
personalities. If they attack oil they risk exposing malfeasance,
and exposing malfeasance means a drop in their stock value (like we
saw at Enron). Thus they need a scapegoat for Americans to vent
their gas-pump rage upon, and immigrants, blacks, gays, religious
minorities etc. are
a perennial favorite, and always convenient.
What can you, the scapegoat and consumer, do in the face of these
attacks? Well, here are the self-evident facts, and here's what you
First of all, understand, and never forget, the following:
Oil. The entire American economy depends on it. Oil makes
plastics, plastics you see in everything from water bottles to
computer parts. Oil prices affect the price of all goods which have
Oil powers many of the generators in our electrical grids. Oil
affects the price of your electric bill.
Oil is the diesel in the trucks and trains that bring goods to
your Wal-Mart, it is the airline fuel that transports people and
international goods. It therefore affects the price of air and land
Because airline fuel affects ticket prices, it is
the difference between tourism and no tourism.
The last time we had an oil crisis, in the 1970s, the result was
severe inflation. It may have cost President Jimmy Carter his
re-election more than any other factor.
As you can see, oil is far more than just the gas you put in your
car. When the price of this oil is artificially manipulated, the
American economy takes a heavy blow in all sectors: energy,
transportation, service industries, goods, etc. Those responsible
for this manipulation need to divert your attention, and to do it,
they appeal to man's basest instincts, hate and fear. They scapegoat
an ethnic or religious minority.
Lou Dobbs, Mike Savage. Do they own stock in oil? What do you
think? (Tune in next time, and we'll discuss their stock
Please keep in mind that most advertisers don't share or
necessarily agree with the politics of race baiting shows. It's just
economics...they want visibility. However, they don't want it the
expense of losing customers or being perceived as unfriendly towards
any segment of the consumers. For this reason, they will likely
spend their advertising dollars on other shows, such as the
competitor of the show, rather than risk alienating the consumer
dollars they are aiming for.
Don't let them Divert Your Attention
The Effective Boycott Employs the Following:
1. Assign Commercial Monitors. Set up a monitor for
each targeted radio or TV show. For example, one or two daily
monitors for Lou Dobbs or Rush Limbaugh whose sole assignment is
to note advertisers for these shows.
2. Identify Prime Advertisers. Get the name of
advertisers, e.g., national or local advertisers that appear on
a given show. Post a list of these advertisers on a high
visibility web site. If you see a particular insurance company
advertising on a targeted show, note the company, post it to the
list of boycotted companies. If the same company has more than
one commercial on the same show, target that company over any
3. Call and Write to Advertiser. Call and write to
sponsors of the show to make sure they are aware of a possible
boycott, allow them a chance to pull ads from a targeted show.
Make sure to explain the reason for your concern,
4. Post List. Use friendly radio assets and the
internet to promote said web site which points out offending
advertisers. Indeed, the largest radio station in Los Angeles is
Spanish-language. Using it, bringing traffic to such a blacklist
site could be easier than you think.
5. Surgical Boycotts. Encourage boycotters to choose
one or all of the advertisers of a given show, for example, Lou
"Grand Dragon" Dobbs, to boycott for an entire month, or longer.
Surgical boycotts, aimed at a prime sponsor of a given show,
work best provided enough people know of the boycott. Email,
radio, internet postings can spread the word.
6. Do not end boycott until goal is met. For example,
until a public apology is offered by the host or the network
president resigns, or feels the full wrath of stockholder
pressure. Stay updated on list of advertisers. Participate. And
don't buy from those who spit in your face, and your children's.
7. Remember that domestic terrorism is still terrorism.
Oklahoma City Bombing. When CNN or any other network
advocates membership in front groups for the Klan or similar
white supremacist militia movements, do not reward their
sponsors with consumer dollars. Much like international
terrorists, who form front groups and "religious charities" to
fund their movement, Klan fronts are created to maintain an
illusion of grassroots sentiment, but are easily discerned by a
consistently parallel agenda with official Ku Klux Klan
platforms and ideology. For example, both the Minutemen and Klan
see the government as an enemy; both groups support vigilante
justice over federal control of immigration laws. Indeed, the
Klan and Minutemen are now interwoven militia movements, the
latter with a few token minorities but led exclusively by white
supremacists on a crusade to preserve America's "racial purity".
In other words, the Minutemen are the armed militia movement of

Not Covered by Dobbs and Limbaugh: Price-gouging and Hurricane
The farcical hearings and "grilling" of oil executives on charges
of price-gouging during a national emergency were the most obscene
form of grandstanding possible. Yet Sen. Ted Stevens (R) actually
had the nerve to accuse proponents of grandstanding when they asked
the execs be sworn in; because if they weren't, the whole point of
grilling the oil executives on price-gouging was negated.
Stevens, the head of the Senate Commerce Committee, had rejected
calls by senators to abide by standard protocol and have the
executives sworn in. It was obvious that without an oath, no perjury
charges could be leveled after the oil execs lied to Congress, which
was expected. Stevens must have known this, as he went out of his
way to protect witnesses from any legal consequences of such
deception. And so the big oil execs lied at the mock hearings, and
lied with child-like abandon, and if you believe they did otherwise,
you will believe Pedro the Migrant Farm Worker is responsible for
the rise in the price of gasoline, global warming, and crop circles.
|Big Oil's Faithful Bitch
Last Summer, it's Not Pedro Who Raised the Price of
Surely, most US voters can look at Pedro the Migrant Farm
Worker and realize he isn't planning to raise the price of
gasoline this summer; this to boost election year coffers
for puppet candidates. Voters know it's big oil and their
tools on the Hill, and the higher the price of gas, the more
determined voters will be to oust incumbents.
Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska. In 2005, his state of some
663,661 people was appropriated $325 million in pork. That
made an average of $489.87 in earmarking per capita, over
sixteen times the national state average of $30.55 per
person. Much of this pork went to projects benefiting big
There's nothing wrong with making an honest living from
investing in oil or energy interests. However, standing idly
by in the face of illegal profiteering during national
emergencies, and this when the rest of the country is coming
to together to help, that cannot be excused. That any
companies profit at the expense and detriment of your
countrymen at a time of national peril cannot be excused by
conscience or reason. Thus it takes an honest American, and
a good American, to face the true cause of an economic
threat and to use their influences as stockholders to
prevent the abuse of high power at its true source.
Attacking a an ethnic scapegoat won't bring down the price
of gas, and eventually, voters will see through the ruse
when they realize the men they are listening to on radio and
television are simply diverting attention away from the big
oil, and at bottom, this is the industry that controls the
incumbent party, just as Hollywood controls the other.
