Latinos want bias probe of Fox, talk radio
Washington Examiner ^ | 09/12/12 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 09/12/2012 12:50:34 PM PDT by barmag25

Latino groups Wednesday blamed a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics on harmful stereotypes portrayed on TV and in conservative media and are asking the administration to probe Fox News and talk radio, two media cited by the groups as the worst perpetrators.

"We want the government to investigate this," said Alex Nogales, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. "Unless we start this dialogue, these assaults will go on," he said, citing a surge in hate crimes against Hispanics.

Also charging Fox News and talk radio with portraying Hispanics poorly, Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., said the administration should provide "protection from the stimuli that is being promoted out there that is causing the correlation between violence, stereotyping and the increasing racism in this country against Latinos."

News industry insiders, however, noted that Fox has a sister division, Fox Latino, which was recently lauded by NPR. Fox also has several Hispanic hosts. Fox had no comment.

Nogales said his group has been measuring media bias against Latinos since 2008 and now he feels it's time for the government to step in. To back up his claim and provide the Federal Communications Commission with ammo to use against news outlets, Nogales commissioned polling from Latino Decisions to test American views of Hispanics.

When leftists want to take something away they will create a huge storm. With the attacks on our embassies they think they have their chance to cut the first amendment. Watch for gay groups and others start calling for this, and I expect the obama regime to take Egypt’s request to prosecute Terry Jones seriously.

Stay Vigilant, Pray for America.

Police pulled their DWI task force out of my neighborhood when I got robbed at gun point walking home one night. Two hispanic yutes told me “get down on the ground nigger!” several times and took my wallet.

NO followup investigation. NO prosecution. NO talk of “hate crimes”. NO media coverage.

Talk radio is not the culprit.

Certainly would not want Congressman Grijalva, a towering intellect in our Federal Congress, to be upset. The fact that he is a prime race baiter, in a Party of race baiters, must not allow us to ignore his blather.

You know what? I’m not really in the mood for anything today.

I’m all about Americans even Mexican Americans. Hell, I like them the most.

But, you little story of increased attacks on Latino’s is pure fiction.

I blasted some moron just yesterday because they needed to draw attention to themselves and make everyone uncomfortable.

See, it was at this new Mexican restaurant and this Ahole just had to start discussing illegal immigration so well, everyone could hear her erudite opinion on everything.

Told her she was rude and slack jawed. BTW, these people serving us just happen to be Americans and only is on a work visa.

More importantly I’m just trying to have my lunch and enjoy what was the Sopa de Roja I have ever had and her BS was making everyone uncomfortable.

So, fake hurt feeling latino, I feel yuh but your story is just so much crap slinging.

Demanding that government investigate the news media?

There is a mad scramble and competition among assorted minorities and interests groups to lay claim to victim status and a claim to be the swing vote that will decide most every election.

Time to ignore these professional victim-mongers.

Sorry pal, the numbers don't lie. Whites and Asians have very low crime rates and even fewer interracial incidents.

The entire premise is horse manure, there is no “surge in hate crimes against Hispanics”, there is a surge in crimes perpetrated by illegal alien Hispanics, and the public hates that.

He has a point. Fox News frequently has Geraldo Rivera and Juan Williams on (Williams is a native of Panama). They may contribute to people having negative stereotypes.

They should go after ESPN too. All those baseball players from the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and other Latin-American countries. ESPN frequently shows Hispanics striking out, walking batters, committing errors, etc. They need to implement a 7-second time delay so they can edit out anything that makes Hispanics look bad.

Rep. Raul Grijalva is not only a race-baiting grievance pimp but he is also co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus with Keith "Koran" Ellison. Other notable intellectual luminaries of the CPC include Barney Frank, Hank Johnson, Pete Stark, Sheila Jackson-Lee and "Kerosene" Maxine Waters.

Messrs. Grijalva and Nogales need to STFU.

And how many of those "hate crimes" are occurring where the barrio borders the "hood"? I doubt that the perpetrators are turning off Rush's show at noon Pacific Time and then looking off Hispanics to attack.

Reporting the truth regarding the body count and horrendous grisly atrocities that have become commonplace in the Mexican Narco/Civil War apparently has become a hate crime. This war more than threatens to spill over our borders... and is perhaps influence of the murderous cartels is being expressed here, by these so called civil rights groups. The light of day is their enemy, and so they seek to bring the darkness. Don’t fall for it, Fox!

No previous president before Obama appointed an individual who was colluding with a foreign country to undermine the safety and security of US citizens. Read on.

OBAMA APPOINTS LA RAZA LOBBYIST CELIA MUNOZ TO KEY WH JOB We now have the most racist and divisive President in history. No other president has appointed an individual who was colluding with a foreign country try to undermine the safety and security of US citizens.

"La Raza" is a racist and anti-American organization. It's core goal is to overwhelm the American Southwest with illegal immigrants from Mexico who will eventually cause the region to break away from the US and become Mexican territory. In addition, "La Raza" has a more general leftist, pro-Islamist, anti-Western civilization global bias, as can readily be gleaned from the writings and statements of its leaders past and present. They're very much in tune with Zero's ideology.

======================================

RAZA STUDIES TOSSED OUT OF ARIZONA SCHOOLS Raza Studies does not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill us off:

One Raza Studies textbook titled “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood- curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

This is taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (this is AKA the Plan of San Diego).

America-hating Raza Studies teach violence and undermining US ntl security----and preaches the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest...in order to make the SW a Chicano nation.

Course, if you oppose this, you are "heartless"....../s.

NOTE WELL: Adelita Grijalva is the woman on the Arizona school board pimping La Raza/LULAC/Mecha/MALDEF indoctrination programs in Tuscon schools.

Adelita is all up in arms about Raza Studies getting tossed via the AZ state legislature's action...she is the daughter of Raul Grijalva (D-AZ-7) who was just narrowly re-elected to our US Congress.

Cong Raul Grijalva is one of Mexico’s most productive
and loyal Fifth Column in the US Congress....aiding and
abetting the latino criminal underworld, colluding to
take back the SW, and loot and pillage the US treasury.

Third World federales are financing the invasion---getting a cut of the billions the invaders wire back home. ...and a cut of the numerous scams their "voting blocs." The TW is training its Fifth Column of "pressure groups" to intimidate vote-crazed US politicians to give the TW zillions in US tax dollars.

=========================================================================================================

THRIVING ON CHAOS The mentally disturbed Obamatons are creating a dysfunctional chaotic culture, aiding and abetting hate-filled invaders lying in wait to harm Americans.....saddling Americans with the costs of subsidizing a cabal of ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others. The anti-social psychopaths recognize no moral and ethical boundaries----aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences.

=================================================

LATINO CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD---

ICE's "documents and benefits fraud task force" found a common practice among "impoverished" illegals is to buy several faked identities for several thousand dollars each----the illegal then votes and rides the US gravy train under several names.

<><> Jose Madrigal---the Washington state rapist---had some 30 identities. And probably voted and collected US benefits under every single identity.

<><> Another illegal used multiple identites to bilk UI systems of some $3.5 million.

============================================

US Dept of the Treasury Says Illegal Aliens Collecting Billions in Tax Credits According to the US Dept of Treasury’s Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million. This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. $20 billion EITC is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals. Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities-----falsifying official apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.

REFERENCE March 8, 2012 KENNER, La. -- Kenner police arrested illegal Marvin Baca who sold false W-2 forms to another illegal immigrant for $1,500. Baca sold fraudulent W-2 forms for $1,500 to other Hispanics here illegally.

Police said that on one of the forged W-2 forms had a SS no of a person living in Virginia. Police said illegal Hispanics purchase fictitious W-2 forms and file false tax returns with the government to receive EITC refunds. Baca was charged with one count of ID theft and two counts of forgery.
