Just before 7pm, I watched a bit of Lou Dobbs on CNN just out of curiosity.
This racist pig has become the highest-profile nativist on the air-waves,
making the fight against "illegal immigration" his speciality. With his
porcine face and American flag pin on his lapel, he is really easy to hate.
He was interviewing Nativo Lopez, an LA activist who is the head of MAPA
(Mexican American Political Association). This was my first chance to
actually hear one of the movement's leaders. It is simply disgusting that
the mass media has not given people like Lopez a voice and dwells almost
exclusively on the demonstrations, which of course are too large to ignore.
Lopez refused to take any shit from Dobbs and cut him off in midsentence
after he used the term "illegal". Why would you use this offensive word, he
asked? Would you use words like "kike" or "nigger" as well? He also had the
economic facts nailed down as well, telling Dobbs that NAFTA has been
responsible for the loss of 3 million farming livelihoods. What should
these people do except play by the rules of supply and demand which brought
NAFTA to Mexico in the first place. Dobbs, visibly flustered, had no answer.
Here's an interview with Lopez:
