Dem-Gaz /Are Lou Dobbs and 56,000 Arkansans Bizarre Too?

The Arkansas Democrat editorialists are back with their scare tactics – tactics to humiliate anyone who takes the lead on conservative issues in order to frighten anyone else from stepping forward. (See this link from this blog explaining the tactics these editorialists use: http://arkansaswatch.blogspot.com/2008/08/paul-greenberg-editorial-praises-first.html)

This time George Arnold signed his name to the hatchet piece on the leader of Secure Arkansas, Jeannie Burlsworth. It is ironic that his article, which is designed to put the fear into conservatives, accuses Burlsworth of scare tactics. Not only is it ironic, but it is a great example of psychological projection (a defense mechanism in which one attributes – projects- to others one's own unacceptable or unwanted thoughts or/and emotions.) See this link for Arnold's entire article: http://www.nwanews.com/adg/Editorial/235438/

And all these articles are basically the same. They have the template all written, just substitute the name of the conservative that dares to be bold, add a few details, and Voila', another hatchet piece.

Arnold admits that these anti illegal immigrants "are everywhere." But in his closing paragraph he says, "I still hold out hope that there’s room for a serious, fact-based discussion of immigration to this country. Unfortunately, those who think like Jeannie Burlsworth will have nothing to add to such a conversation."

Arnold is basically saying that certain people like Jeannie (and the rest of us) should not have a voice in the discussion, even though 90% of the people agree with us, as we demonstrated when we obtained 56 thousand signatures in 39 working days.

Arnold closes his article with these words, "We’ve got to rise above the irrational kind of fear she’s peddling." And what do these editorialists peddle? Misinformation, fear, and propaganda.

Arnold calls Burlsworth bizarre and pretends she is a "black helicopter" conspiracist because she has concerns about the North American Union (the merger of Mexico, Canada, and the United States.) and the NAFTA Superhighway. I guess Lou Dobbs of CNN is also bizarre because he and his investigators expressed outrage over these issues in special TV programs and were concerned about our sovereignty. See these links for these videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T74VA3xU0EA; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBmFrYWPoG8

It is hard to know if these editorialists are so blind that they can't see the reality of these things they call conspiracies; or if they know the truth and are just trying to fool the people. On some issues we know the answer; they do know the truth and are trying to fool the people. On this North America Union and NAFTA Super Highway, we wonder.

And when are these editorialists going to learn they are the ones out of touch with the people and reality? They need to get out of their little media world and listen to the common folks, most of whom they seem to despise.

Re: thread title

Yes, Lou Dobbs is bizarre, but he's right on the immigration issue.
