Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is releasing a statement of condemnation regarding the violent attack on the home and family of CNN host Lou Dobbs, which Mr. Dobbs revealed on his show yesterday.
"The attack on the Dobbs family home was an attack on every American who values the First Amendment rights of free speech and freedom of the press," said William Gheen of ALIPAC.
Lou Dobbs reported on his talk radio show that a gun was fired into his home only fifteen feet away from his wife and possibly their driver. It is unclear if this was a failed assassination attempt or not.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC plans to contact police authorities and offer a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of the culprits. ALIPAC is also calling on groups like Media Matters, La Raza, and others to stop their numerous false claims that Lou Dobbs, or any American individual or organization opposing illegal immigration, is racist and threatening physical harm against "immigrants".
This act of violence against the popular CNN commentator is likely to have a dramatic effect against the passage of Amnesty legislation.
"That bullet into the Dobbs family home just killed any chance of Comprehensive Amnesty for illegal aliens passing by 2010," said Gheen. "Almost every organization and leader fighting against illegal immigration and Amnesty is receiving a steady stream of death threats due to the false portrayals by these radical pro-illegal alien groups. Every American and member of the media needs to put their foot down and put a stop to this kind of violence evoking propaganda. I have a box full of such threats as do the others."
Groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, Anti Defamation League, National Council of La Raza, Media Matters, MALDEF, LULAC, Immigration Voice, and others have been aggressively distorting the truth about Lou Dobbs and every organization that shares a stance against illegal immigration and amnesty, which is popular with approximately 80% of all Americans. The Spanish media often exaggerates these false claims even further to create fear and political support in Spanish media markets that would collapse if illegal immigration stopped.
These groups seek to portray anyone against illegal immigration as being in false association with the KKK, Neo Nazis, and violence against minorities and immigrants. They do this because less than 15% of Americans support their pro-illegal immigration and pro-Amnesty positions so they focus on demonizing those who resent the popular view like Lou Dobbs. They have made such accusations against blacks, Hispanics, and multi-racial groups with civil rights support backgrounds like ALIPAC!
ALIPAC has launched a video on Youtube that contains the full audio from Lou Dobbs's radio show describing the attack on his home and the gunfire. Every American citizen and member of the media that values their freedoms should view this video.
