Today's reader poll

Here's the story, and now here's the poll:

How far into tomorrow's Lars Larson Show will the nationalities and immigration status of the accused CD pirates be mentioned?
First 5 minutes
First 10 minutes
First half hour
First hour
After first hour
It won't come up free polls

Comments (20)

Expecting a wait of 5 whole minutes may be pushing it!

He will mention their nationalities, immigration status, and this blog entry within the first 15 minutes.

I don't think this blog entry will make it.

kinda like the O, today, pointing out that Pamplin is an "evangelical Christian", ain't it?

He'll only mention it if he suspects they are illegals. Should it not be mentioned? Seems to me their trail of illegal activites is relevant.

if he suspects they are illegals

And is there any smidgen of doubt that he would?

If they are legal, then he won't even mention the story. If they are illegal the story will arrive in the first 20 minutes. If they were some of the 80,000 illegals who bought an Oregon Driver's license in Hillsboro the story will arrive in the first 5 minutes. If over half of the accused are both illegal AND registered to vote in Oregon, Jack Bog should mow Lars Larson's lawn.

If they are legal

Do you think he'll know? Do you think for a second that he can keep his mouth shut even though he doesn't?

Pasted here is a list of suspects from the O's coverage. Is it hateful to ask if they're legal citizens engaging in unlawful activity?

Police release names of those arrested in piracy raid
Posted by The Oregonian June 10, 2007 16:16PM

Beaverton police released the names today of 10 people arrested Saturday in a large piracy raid at two popular swap meets.

Accused of selling counterfeit CDs and DVDs are: America Benito, 32; Laura Morales Carrasco, 27; Silvia Hernandez, 44; Daniel Flores Armenta, 22; Jose Ibarra Romero, 19; Ma Maldonado, 46; Jose Romero Esquivel, 36; Miguel Orduna Alonso, 28; Victor Garcia, 37; and Martha Tellez, 36.

Officers seized more than 50,000 items worth about $758,000, including counterfeit music CDs and movie DVDs and knockoff designer purses, sunglasses and clothing at the M&M Swap Meet and Millennium Flea Market in Hillsboro.

One industry official called the piracy raid the largest in Oregon and one of the largest in the country. Search warrants are expected to be released Monday.

Is it hateful to ask whether you're prejudiced against people with Latino surnames?

Are overtly racialist organizations such as La Raza hateful ?

How about the popular idea of Reconquista, or the "Re-Conquering" of the American Southwest by Latinos ?

How about all those marchers in LA with banners loudly proclaiming that this is their continent, not ours ?

Is that hateful ? Is there a way to quantify how hateful a person's bigotry is, depending on their race ?

For the record, I grew up in Tejas, worked for and alongside Mexicans, including illegal aliens, dated Mexican girls, etc, etc. I've nothing against Latinos whatsoever. But, if you speak Espanol, even un poquito, you can't help but overhear what a small but vocal minority of them are saying about the stupid gringos sometimes...

I guess bigotry can occur in any group, and that's just a sad fact of life. But in extremely Caucasian places like Oregon, the whites almost always seem quite shocked when they finally come to that realization.

Lars is kind of boring at best. A Talk Jock by the name of Phil Hendries used to put it really well, when he compared today's gigantic influx of Latinos into our country with the influx of Italians about 100 years ago. They bring with them their culture, their customs, their birthrates, their organized crime, and so forth, while taking the lowest paying, most menial jobs...while the media just whips itself into a xenophobic frenzy...

...then in time, over a few generations, they become Americans like anyone else.

My two centavos...

A Talk Jock by the name of Phil Hendries used to put it really well, when he compared today's gigantic influx of Latinos into our country with the influx of Italians about 100 years ago

Well Phil Hendrie is hilarious, but I wouldn't take his pronouncements too seriously. He acts as both host AND guest on his radio show to elicit calls from yahoos. His schtick is both amazing and funny...

...then in time, over a few generations, they become Americans like anyone else.

Funny, doesnt seem like they want to. So far society is trying to get Americans to assimilate to them, not the other way around.

The first clue is "press one for English".

"society is trying to get Americans to assimilate to them"

That doesn't seem to be working too well.

"Just doing the jobs some Americans won't do". LOL! LOL!

Sorry, but if you lose a bet to Lars, you can't mow his lawn, he has many, many illegal Mexicans for that job, but you could straighten-up his toupee.

And add another inch or two to his "lifts."



Way to go!, Jack. You gagged LIARS. Unlikely that he was going to give this news, nevermind sensationalize it extremistly, in the first place, but after this blog post went up it cut him off so he could not possibly touch it.

Self-exiled political racists like LIARS, (in contrast with social racists, same as the difference between brain-rotted alcoholic drinkers and social drinkers), to 'justify' xenophobia by political excuses, look for nappy-headed illegal immigrants injuring the body politick, say by nonresident voter registration. That way, LIARS pretends claiming in moral indignation some high-ground justification for his MasterRacism inferiority complex -- "they offend against all, real Oregonians," as if he was one and a victim, (like Hitler hid his personal defect of hating Jews under the Big Lie that real German Germany was being injured) -- and so LIARS must avoid garden-variety single crime items, 'brown on brown' exploitation, perhaps for instance, or commercial fraud. Lest 'petty crime' picksniffing, openly exhibited, more proved LIARS pathetic, petty, racist personality fault.

Then when this blog post made an issue of it, LIARS ran away from the risk of his callers citing it, dumbly programmed as they are not seeing that LIARS now regrets he ever promoted blogs after the clout of told-truth has beaten against him.

But wow, here, the blog post really named names of LIARS Losers still hanging around after he introduced them. Move along, foam-mouthed rightwingers, this blog and Portland society doesn't share your fascist authoritarian derangement -- go stay in your LIARS bubble.

Btw, LIARS did air, today, a multiple-choice answer for his audience size. He said he has, "[a.] 4, or [b.] 500,000, listeners." Hint: It ain't 'b.'

Wow..Lars is the hateful one? Right.

Right. Way too right: Fascist autocrat.

And the day this town has had enough of LIARS and broadcast epidemic anti-social hate, shouted in ears, sickening minds, just explain to Paul Allen that he cannot keep his syndicated racist-hate AM radio and independent hip-hop happenin' Blazer-bubble climate-control FM radio properties separate, patronizing antagonistic audiences with his disdain of people's cognizance in both. Like anti-matter and matter, Allen's massmind combination causes mutual annihilation and he loses both.

Lose the anti-social haters, Paul. This ain't provincial Portland talking, this is the way of the wide world -- join it or jump off.

Michael Savage and Bill O'Reilly Must Go, by Rory O'Connor, AlterNet, June 12, 2007. "... Savage (born Michael Alan Weiner) about his continuing attacks ...," "Bill about is his penchant for name-calling ...," ""in the wake of the recent Imus affair, FCC concerns, and so on...'."

That was quite a rant. Seek help for your paranoid ravings.
