Fwd: Centro Sin Fronteras--boycot t Lou Dobbs sponsors
- (NOTE: I will point out to people that IBEW Local 21 has been fighting Comcast for a number of years organizing the cable installers.
http://www.ibew21.org/organize/organizing_at_comcast.htmlMenards generally is part of the Big Box monopolizing dispute and has had other problems with environmental people in Wisconsin for one thing (from a quick Google). Progressives do have to hit back at these reactionaries who people like Dobbs are helping to define the terms over the migrant labor issue. Please get this into other forums--like IndyMedia for instance.......dd)

Those of you who have recently watched his show know that he dedicates a large part of it, almost every evening, to racist immigrant bashing. He goes so far as to retail the story of a Mexican plot to "reconquer" the United States. Recently he distinguished himself by having on a guest who told his audience that the rate of leprosy in the United States has jumped to 7,000 cases in the last three years because of immigrants. Actually it turns out that the rate of leprosy in the US is 7000 cases in THIRTY years, which is miniscule, and shows no increase. He was called on to retract the false information but so far has refused. This is par for the course for Lou Dobbs, the valient warrior defending the "middle class".Here is the message on this, which includes contact info on Menards, Comcast and CNN.Emile Schepers
