Na Na Na, Hey Hey Lou Dobbs Goodbye

Victory for people power. Under tremendous pressure from the Basta Dobbs and Drop Dobbs Campaigns, CNN’s Lou Dobbs resigned from CNN.

Never again do we have to hear Lou Dobbs anti-immigrant vitriol. Last night, Dobbs told viewers during his 7pm show, Lou Dobbs Tonight, that he was resigning immediately, saying that “some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in positive problem-solving, as well as to contribute positively to the great understanding of the issues of our day.”

Yes, Lou I do not deny I took part in the Basta Dobbs campaign. If your immediate departure was due to my involvement, then I am not ashamed of it as you are not ashamed spewing your venomous anti-immigration diatribe night after night.

There won’t be analytical analysis why his departure today because there is no need to repeat what has been said here and on other blogs and editorials. I know this won’t be the last time I will see him on air. And you can bet he will be on Fox News very soon. So for right now, I celebrate this victory by saying Na na na, hey hey, goodbye.

I like to thank Roberto Lovato of Of America and co-founder of Presente.org for involving me in the Basta Dobbs campaign.

    “Never again do we have to hear Lou Dobbs anti-immigrant vitriol.”

    While I celebrate the satisfaction of seeing that pendejo Dobbs get booted off the air and while I give huge kudos to Lavato I remain cautious that the victory may be short lived.

    Dobbs will most certainly return to Tv. Some network will take him if there is money to be made.

    I agree with you there. I am pretty sure Faux News will pick him up soon.

    Faux News?

    Great article, and great song at the end. I laughed so hard when I heard the song at the end.
