Remember when Lou Dobbs was on CNN trying to pretend that he was somehow looking out for the working class in America with his reporting on outsourcing and as his series he called "The War on the Middle Class?" I used to have an ounce of respect for the man and some of his reporting before he lost his damned mind over the immigration issue and then further lost his mind and went full birther on us after a black man dared to think he could be President of the United States.
He got booted off of CNN for his over the top fear mongering on the immigration issue, but he had already proven during his time there that he hated unions. He's shown himself to be nothing but another corporate shill willing do whatever it takes to make a buck with his recent move to the Fox Business Channel that Kelly touted at the end of this segment with him.
He was more than happy during this segment here to help Megyn Kelly sound the alarm on those evil union members looking like they're possibly going to have some success in the recall efforts in Wisconsin. So much for him being a man of the working people which he clearly showed us he was not a long time ago. Sorry Lou, but when you attack unions and are doing the bidding of the Koch brothers and their allies, you're attacking their members and the working class, because they are the union.
Chris Bowers has more on that in his article at DailyKOS which I'm posting in full here since it was a very short post there to begin with and the content there needs to be spread as far and wide as possible to get the word out to help get these Republicans recalled in Wisconsin.
Fox News is sounding the alarm bells in Wisconsin:
Their fear is well-grounded. For example, some local organizers are now saying they have surpassed the number of recall petition signatures required against Rpublican state Senator Randy Hopper's district:
Efforts to recall Republican State Senator Randy Hopper from Fon du Lac have reached another milestone, as organizers issue a call for volunteers to turn in any remaining petitions to be counted. Organizer Scott Dillman says he's sure they have enough signatures to trigger the recall, but he can't give exact figures yet. He says, processing all the information they've collected so far will take a week.
Meanwhile, your ad campaign against Randy Hopper is now live. Since 7 am, central time, Monday morning, it has recorded over 400,000 impressions in Randy Hopper's district. There are only 175,000 people in Randy Hopper's district. It will run until Monday, April 4th.
