CNN's Lou Dobbs Takes on DNC Communication Director Karen Finney

CNN's Lou Dobbs Calls Former DNC Communication Director Karen Finney An Ideologue & Rude

Jim Dean, the brother of Howard and chair of the progressive group Democracy for America has penned a letter calling for CNN and the United States Radio Network to fire the host.

The letter, which was sent to DFA's email list, is below:

Yesterday, our friends at Media Matters for America, who are dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media, caught Lou Dobbs promoting hate and inciting violence towards Governor Howard Dean.

With violence from right-wing extremist groups on the rise and Republican backed mobs hanging cardboard versions of members of congress in effigy, Lou Dobbs' statement is dangerous. Enough is enough.

It's time for CNN and the United Stations Radio Network to fire Lou Dobbs.

Call Now and demand Lou Dobbs be taken off the air


This isn't the first time Lou Dobbs has used the air waves to promote hate and embarrass CNN.

His relentless promotion of debunked, racially charged conspiracy theories about President Obama's birth certificate have already seriously damaged CNN's credibility. Yet, Lou Dobbs remains on the air.

Now, he's gone too far. He's not just making CNN look bad, he's inciting violence to stop Governor Dean from fighting for President Obama's health insurance option. That's not just un-American, it's irresponsible and dangerous.

It's up to us to make sure CNN and the United Stations Radio Network know we've had enough.


This isn't just about my brother Howard; this is about the America we all want to live in.

Thank you for everything you do,


Jim Dean, Chair
Democracy for America


Wild Thing's comment.......

We were called names all during the Clinton years, and then during the campagin for Bush vs. Kerry campaign, add into the the horrible things said about President Bush and VP Dick Cheney and all of us on the right for 8 years.

OK now let's add into this the two years of Obama playing the freaking race card the whole campaign. No one else was ONLY Obama and his team and his media and they worked over time doing this.

Now we have citizens, America loving citizens that have had enough of the left, enough of Obama's socialism and spend, spend, spend and now the socialized medicine he is pushing like some traveling Pimp side show in his fake town hall meetings......and we the people wanting to speak up for ourselves and for our country we love. And they want to silence us, with their Union zombie thugs and politicians .

Lou was right when he said Obama told us to shut up. And that sure as heck never happened in the USA, only from THIS affirmative action president that has yet to prove he is legit.

DNC Communication Director Karen Finney can go jump in a lake.

.... Thank you Eden for sending this to me.

Thanks for finding this and posting it. I saw it and my jaw dropped...WTG Lou! If anyone wants to see an extended version of this panel discussion it's at youtube

This woman is awful. How can you have your head so far up your butt and not suffocate? When she looks up she must see her colon.

No she can't see that far it her asshole she's looking at.

Yeah, they have no problem trashing our 1st Amendment rights, call it manufactured, KKK or Nazi organized and they call us protestors, which is not the case. We disagree with what they have written against us, putting our rights and freedom at risk and we are supposed to sit by and let it slide out the door. Because these idiots know whats best for us ?

But its OK for the Prez. to call out his THUGS to ruff up normal every day citizens because the disagree with his Marxist/Communist agenda. How dare we want to express our opinion, and expect to be heard.

The Left is really having trouble handling the fact that American citizens are protesting the Dems that are in power. The citizens are doing on their own what the Left has organized professional protesters to do for decades. And the Left doesn't know how to accept peaceful, but adament real protesters. So the Left resorts to exagerrated name calling and false accusations. Heh, heh! They can't handle citizens using the same tactics of free speech.

I don't get Lou Dobbs over here in Saudi. However, if someone can tell me who his advertisers are, the ones that will NOT support him and leave his program, please let me know. I will promise to never spend another dime of my money [and those of us that have the income do spend it!] with someone who DOES NOT support him. Go Lou!

Wasn't it just fine and dandy when people protested and disagreed with George W. Bush. Now that people are protesting and disagreeing with the jug-eared-jack-ass it is NOT fine and dandy? I beg to differ.

Oh, and to add to the protest, just chalk me up as one of those "birthers." I do not believe the
"mack-daddy usurper lying muslim" [partially taken from Dr. James Manning - not his direct quote - but close] is an American. I do not believe he was born here. And, I do not believe he should be the leader of what WAS the best, finest nation in the entire world.

Thanks you freaking' clueless ideologues and "rubes" [I think he said "rube" not "rude"] for taking the greatest Nation in the entire world and ruining it for the rest of us!

When they come to you with their swords, don't expect those of us who get "it" to save your butts. The jeja will do that for you. The rest of us? We'll have our own "place" by them. Me? I'm counting on either Texas or Alaska...

They can all go jump in the lake for all I care. And if CNN doesn't want Lou anymore, he can go over to Fox, like Beck did. I just hate reading how bad Fox is, when CNN and MSNBC are just as bad the other way.

I'm glad to see Lou Dobbs get his feet burned, moreso that he is fighting back, he's getting a feel of the vermin he has supported all these years. He has woke up and sees the loss of the nation and his own freedom, now that he's taken a stance they want to hang him for it. Welcome to our world Lou, the Constitution , the entire document, means something to us, not just the first amendment, including freedom of speech, something they are trying to deny to all of us. Personally I don't want another fence rider at Fox just because the winds that are blowing are not in his favor, it's like having the enemy hold up in your foxhole because the weather's bad. F'k Him!!! We've got RINO's because we have too much empathy for halfwits. Lou is a free agent if he want's to change, he's bound by false loyalty to the Commies.

BT in SA, I love Alaska. Alaska's population is 686,293 demographics are such that about half of the population lives in the bigger cities of Anchorage (279,243 ), Fairbanks (97,484) and Juneau (30,988 ), the rest are in very small cities and villages. When I lived there about 30% of the population were conservative and voted that way, most of the bush population is self reliant or subsistence based.
Subsistence lifestyles mean living off the land and being subsidized by State and Federal programs. Those subsistence folks tend to vote for the hand that gives out the most.
There is the fishing, mining and tourist, and oil(mining)industry plus a large contingent of military within the state all are dependent on federal government decisions and regulations. The remainder of jobs are service based. A large population of Alaska workers live outside and commute, they add nothing to the local tax base or political balance.
Take along your own means of wealth, Alaska is on many levels a microcosm of big government control and all the bad things that go with it, I found that the cost of living there didn't offset the restrictions and hardships, if I move again it will be to Texas or totally out of the US.

Mark, LOL that was great.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 14, 2009 11:14 PM

Tom, exactly. hahahaha

"They can't handle citizens using the same tactics of free speech."

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 14, 2009 11:15 PM

BT in SA, that was great! I agree.

I will have to find out about the
advertisers that won't support him.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 14, 2009 11:19 PM

Lynn, I think Lou started to see the light
so to speak when he took on the illegals.
He really made that his thing for a long
time. That and the North American Union
and I was sooo glad he did those things.

I wonder if FOX has talked to him about
what has been happening.
