How's that civility workin' out for 'ya, lefties? Part III

CNN's Lou Dobbs reports that he and his family have faced gunshots -- yes, gunshots -- near their home:

"But I want to tell you, when you talk about what they've done - they've created an atmosphere and they've been unrelenting in their propaganda," Dobbs said. "Three weeks ago this morning, a shot was fired at my house where I live. My wife was standing out and that followed weeks and weeks of threatening phone calls."

Dobbs detailed the event, the notification of law enforcement and threatening phone calls he had received after the fact.

"And, as I told the state patrol, and by the way, the New Jersey State Patrol is absolutely terrific - they responded instantly. But this shot was fired with my wife not, I don't know, 15 feet away and we had threatening phone calls that I decided not to report because I get threatening phone calls," Dobbs continued. "I now - it's become a way of life - the anger, the hate, the vitriol, but it's taken a different tone where they've threatened my wife. They've now fired a shot at my house while my wife was standing next to the car. It's become something else."

Where else have you heard about this? Certainly not on the MSM. And why? Let's see ... because Dobbs is a vocal critic of our lax stance towards illegal immigration? That's not very politically correct! But hey, get a few angry average citizens shouting at a few [Democrat] politicians at town hall meetings and WHOA!! Then, it's long pundit treatises on the need for "civility."

UPDATE: It's stuff like this that gets Dobbs riled up. And, in the eyes of groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, what makes him a "villain" for speaking out against:

I recounted earlier this morning that Democrats are trying to block a requirement that the census inquire whether respondents are American citizens. At the same time, the Mexican government is interfering in our census by urging Mexican nationals to get themselves counted so they can grab bigger slices of hundreds of billions in social welfare spending i.e., the redistribution of wealth from taxpaying American citizens to Mexican immigrants legal and illegal.

Check out this story in the Spanish language Mexican paper, El Financiero. It reports that the Mexican consulates in Los Angeles and Miami are advising Mexicans in the U.S. that the census will be critical to assigning $300 billion annually in federal, state and local social programs over the next ten years specifically, in determining the level of funds to be applied toward the population of Mexican origin.

What's insulting about those who believe Dobbs evil incarnate is their conventional wisdom that somehow all Hispanics think alike -- not a surprise in today's era (especially among the liberal intelligensia) where "group think" is supposedly a common positive. That, somehow, merely because one is of Latino origin, he/she is in favor of illegal immigration, or, at the very least, allowing those who are here already to stay and be granted amnesty and/or benefits.

Sorry. My spouse is an Hispanic -- legal -- immigrant. She played by the rules. And the views of the amnesty-granters et. al. make her pretty angry.
