[UPDATE: Jesus Christ Responds!] KFI's John and Ken Show Face Boycott by Latino Groups

Thumbnail image for johnandkenshow.jpg
Pendejo and pendejo-er
UPDATE: 9 p.m.Jesus Christ Himself--or rather, Neil Saavedra, the half-wab who's the director of marketing for KFI, the host of the wildly popular Jesus Christ Show every Sunday morning, and someone I consider a professional, if not personal, friend, responds exclusively to the Weekly:

I wanted you to know we are meeting with representatives from the Latino community (LULAC, Latino Business Association among others) we just are not meeting with Alex Nogales. We agreed to meet with Mr. Nogales and then he went on a media tour last Friday telling everyone John and Ken must be fired, "non-negotiable"...not exactly a good place to start.

Take Neil's words, and then apply them to the unsigned letter KFI published today regarding the boycott led by the National Hispanic Media Coalition of JohnKen.

"The station wants to be sure that there are no misunderstandings between us and LA's important, vibrant and diverse Latino community," the letter reads. "We are meeting with a larger, more representative group of local Latino leaders-including representatives of LULAC, the nation's oldest and largest Hispanic Civil Rights organization, the Latin Business Association, the nation's largest Hispanic business group, and others- to have an open, fruitful discussion about any concerns they may have."

Um, LULAC is as Aztlanista as NHMC, guys. And "Latin Business Association"? Never heard of them, and they have as much cachet among Mexis as Nativo Lopez. Here's the skinny, guys: the non-vendido Latinos in Southern California DESPISE JohnKen. They're bigots, plain and simple. Coast to Coast AM? We love it. Handel? Awesome, since he insults everyone. Bill Carroll? We're all at work during his time, so none of us know who he is. Conway? Okay, we love "What the Hell did Jesse Jackson Say?," but that's because we fuck with negritos as much as ustedes. But JohnKen? They hate Mexis and Mexis alone--don't make me comb through the hours (since I, like few non-vendido Mexis, actually listen to the guys religiously because, outside of their racialist politics, they're almost always spot-on) and show the world their bigotry.

My advice? Don't toy with Mexis. Either ignore us, or attack us--but don't patronize us, because hell hath no fury like a bunch of wabs scorned...

UPDATE, Oct. 6, 5 p.m.: Boycott on! After getting their scheduled meeting with KFI brass canceled today, the National Hispanic Media Coalition has officially launched a "Take John and Ken off the Air" campaign. Fun times!

"This cancellation is only one incident in Clear Channel and KFI's disappointing pattern of disregard for the Latino community," wrote NHMC head Alex Nogales in a just-issued press release." Clear Channel and KFI have proven that they are hate profiteers.

"Their refusal to face the music regarding John and Ken's egregious behavior shows us that they are not concerned with the people they harm but only their bottom line. This is not the kind of response we would expect from responsible broadcasters. By their actions, Clear Channel and KFI have sent a strong message - they have blessed John and Ken's hate-filled rants while at the same time demonstrated their complete disregard to serving the Los Angeles community,"

More--much more--after I go get some Manhattans in me at Memphis...

Original Post, Oct. 1, 8:33 a.m.: When I heard through the Reconquista grapevine a couple of weeks back that the National Hispanic Media Coalition and other Latino groups were planning to announce an advertiser boycott of KFI-AM 640's John and Ken Show for their Mexican-hating ways and call for their removal, I felt bad for the groups, for the unholy backlash they would surely receive from hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou. Those Latino groups do good work, and are too dignified to engage in the bare-knuckles nastiness for which JohnKen are infamous.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the sewer: JohKen are running scared, like the cowering pendejos they are.

The issue that triggered everything is actually old news: early last month, JohnKen read on-air the cell phone number of Jorge-Mario Cabrera, an activist with the Coalition of Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), which they obtained from a CHIRLA press release. Of course, their minions flooded Cabrera's phone with nasty messages, and Latino activists in Southern California reacted with horror, even though JohnKen had done THE EXACT SAME STUNT--to a female UCLA student, no less--last year. Why CHIRLA, the NHMC and others are just acting now against JohnKen is beyond me--but that's not the purpose of this post.

JohnKen's reaction to the threat of boycott and calls for resignation has been amazing, but true: instead of laughing off the attempt, as they usually do when receiving any criticism, they immediately went on the retreating offensive, performing the radio equivalent of a backtracking, yapping Chihuahua. Yesterday on their show, instead of brushing off the NHMC, JohnKen accused THEM of racism--you know, because they're Hispanic and unite around ethnicity. Hey, dipshits: if Latino activists don't unite against racist depictions of Latinos in the media, who will? Last night, on the 10 o'clock news (I believe it was KTLA-TV Channel 5), Kobylt looked like a man spooked when he was claiming that those groups wanted to suppress his right to act like a blubbering fool. That's not true, son: if they really wanted to target people simply for being stupid, they would've gone after Hugh Hewitt a long time ago.

Even funnier, though, was a letter the two wrote to the Los Angeles Times--a paper they constantly ridicule as irrelevant--that was published yesterday, in which they claimed unfair treatment at the hands of the Times and activists.

"The reporter writes: 'While illegal immigration has long been a particular focus of the show, it's only one of several favorite targets--the hosts have railed against taxes, labor unions and other pet causes for years with equally incendiary rhetoric,'" the two wrote in their letter. "What incendiary rhetoric? Not a single example is cited ... because there aren't any to cite."

¡No mamen, pendejos! JohnKen claiming they've never engaged in "incendiary rhetoric" is like Mike Carona claiming he never had an affair. For a good year on my own KPFK-FM 90.7 show, we'd run a weekly "John and Ken Moment of Hate" in which we repeated the most vile accusation of the week; if I had had a daily program, it would've been a daily segment, given the amount of material available. JohnKen have been treating Mexican culture as their personal chamber pot for years, increasing the shit they dump on it with each passing month, none more vile than when they specifically blamed Mexican culture for the horrific Dodgers Stadium beating earlier this year, and Kobylt in particular stated "if [Mexicans] have to kill us along the way" of Reconquista "they will." That's the whole schtick of their show--or is the "Heads on a Stick" campaign just a valentine to Democrats? Hey: maybe I should restart the "John and Ken Moment of Hate" on this infernal blog...but I digress.

The funniest reaction, though, has been from KFI brass. Not only will they meet with the complaining Mexis (THAT should go well), but KFI market manager Greg Ashlock wrote a letter to NHMC president Alex Nogales on Sept. 28 that tried to paint JohnKen as good guys, because "they are deeply committed and engaged in supporting important and necessary causes in the community such as the annual Multiple Sclerosis Bike Ride and the Salvation Army." Tee-hee! That's the same type of red-herring fluff JohnKen rightfully ridicule others for using--and now they're using the same card. HILARIOUS! How long until JohnKen claim they're not anti-Mexican and trot out their producer, Ray Lopez, or any other of the more-than-a-few Latinos that work at the station?

I doubt any proposed boycott will work--if anything, it'll further antagonize the JohnKen nation toward hating Mexicans. But I nevertheless congratulate Nogales, Cabrera, and the other groups involved for finally showing the world what JohnKen truly are: the radio equivalent of Biff from Back in the Future. Have fun!

And now, for the requisite full disclosures: the NHMC once gave me an award, and KFI once gave me a paycheck for guest-hosting, a gig that went so well they never invited me back. It's all good.

Your article states several times that John and Ken hate Mexicans. This is not true. They hate the fact that the distinction between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants is often ignored in the media, as it is in your article.

John and Ken had no right to give out a private citizein's phone number on the air. They need to be fired. AM radio these days is full of garbage. I remember when AM radio had intelligent hosts and interesting topics. Now any trailer trash who flunked out of college can be an AM radio host. It's really sad.

Gustavo, I applaud your intelligent and dead-on commentary about John and Ken.  Reading the comments from their fans makes me realize what racist IDIOTS most of them are.  They worship and defend these two spineless, talentless blowhards who don't give a crap about anyone but themselves!    Yes for years these two self-absorbed  multi-milliionares have crapped on the Latino culture, once in a while they throw in a jab at Blacks, Asians or gays, but most of their hateful vitriol is towards anything Latino, whether legal or illegal.  They also crap on unions, teachers and don't want tax increases on multi-millionaires like themselves. But their cash cow is dumping on Latino immigrants.   It's funny how they choose to live and operate in a state with so many Latinos.   Wouldn't Alabama be better suited for them?

I'm a white person.  Son of legal immigrants.  Married to a legal immigrant (not from Mexico).  And I 100% support the Dream Act.  Kicking out kids who had the misfortune to be born in a country where they are not legal citizens because their parents had the nerve to want a better life for them is inhumane, asinine, and yep, racist.  Reminds me of WWII era where the US refused to take Jewish refugees from the concenration camps.  I guess they would have been "illegals" too huh?  And don't give me that BS about obeying the law either - every one of you "law and order" clowns has driven over the speed limit, driven drunk, smoked a little weed (more likely meth given your demographics actually), cheated on your taxes or committed some other crime at some point in your life.  But you don't get punished for the crimes your PARENTS committed now do you?  (Like for example, not having you aborted, but I digress).  I love John and Ken on the Kelly Thomas case, wow, they have helped out with that, and on a bunch of other stuff, but on the Dream Act?  pathetic.  as are 90% of the commentors on this.  Good work Gustavo.  Hit them where it hurts. So sayeth the Gringo.

Actually, kids get 'punished' for the crimes their parents commit all the time. You don't think Bernie Madoff's kids are being 'punished' by the feds taken their father's ill-gotten gains. Or how about the folks who are foreclosed on -- they didn't even commit a crime, but the kids will have to move, go to a new school, make new friends, miss old friends etc.

The 'Dream Act' doesn't simply avoid 'punishing' -- it *rewards* people for illegal activity. I don't get rewarded for going over the speed limit. They don't hand me a black pass saying I can speed whenever I like if I am caught.

But I have a deal. Okay, let these 'kids' stay -- but take it out of Mexico's other immigrant flow. Mexico sends about 15% or 150,000 *legal* immigrants a year (far above its percentage of the world population. So for every 'dream act* kid, take that space from another Mexican (or wherever) potential immigrant. 2000 Somali kids use 'Dream Act', then 2000 spaces are taken away from other Somali immigrants. 

Let's see if the 'Latino' ethnic-activists go for that deal.

ELAChicano
ELAChicano

Mitch, you sound like a reasonable guy.  Here's the truth about immigration. Read it and don't be misled by idiots.

What’s the big deal about immigration now? Perhaps it is the racial & ethnic make up of immigrants who come to the U.S. today:

“A new era of mass migration, accelerating since the 1970s, has transformed the ethnic and racial composition of the U.S. population and the communities where they settle. This time the flows have come largely from Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia, not from Europe” (Rumbaut 4).

In short, immigrants threaten to seriously change the racial/ethnic make up of the United States. There will soon no longer be a white racial majority in the U.S. and this is a very scary thought for many people!

Do immigrants commit more crime than citizens? No.

“The perception that the foreign-born, especially ‘illegal aliens,’ are responsible for higher crime rates is deeply rooted in American public opinion and is sustained by media anecdote and popular myth” (Rumbaut 2).

“Both contemporary and historical studies, including official crime statistics since the early 1990s, data from the last three decennial censuses, national and regional surveys in areas of immigrant concentration, and investigations carried out by major government commissions over the past century, have shown instead that immigration is associated with lower crime rates and lower incarceration rates” (Rumbaut, 2).

Rumbaut’s study concludes, “during a 13-year period [1994-2006] when the immigrant population (and especially the undocumented population) was increasing sharply to historic highs, the overall rates of property and violent crimes in the United States decreased significantly, in some instances to historic lows” (Rumbaut 8).

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS!!!

According to Rumbaut’s study, “the incarceration rate of the U.S.-born (3.51 percent) was five times the rate of the foreign-born (0.68 percent). The latter [immigrant incarcerated population] was less than half the 1.71 percent rate for non-Hispanic white natives, and seventeen times less than the 11.6 percent incarceration rate for native black men. The advantage for immigrants vis-à-vis natives applies to every ethnic group without exception.

***Overall, immigrants are five times less likely to commit crimes than all racial/ethnic groups who are born in the United States!!!

Do unauthorized or “illegal immigrant” children burden the public educational system? No.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, there “were 1.8 million children who were unauthorized” in the United States [Note: not all of whom were school-aged children]. These children make up approximately 0.006 or just over ½ of 1 percent of the U.S. population. How can less than half of one (1) percent of the population put so big a burden on our schools?

Do so-called “Anchor Babies” [U.S. Citizen children by birth] born to undocumented immigrants burden the public educational system? No.

Again, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, there “were 3.1 million children who were born to unauthorized parents” in the United States [Note: Not all of whom were school-aged children].

These U.S. Citizen children make up approximately 1 percent of the U.S. population. So I ask: How can 1 percent of the U.S. population burden the public educational system? More importantly, these children are citizens! So, they have a right to access the public educational system.

Do undocumented immigrants take unfair advantage of the welfare system? No.

In 1997, then-President Bill Clinton changed the welfare system from Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) to Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). With this change, President Clinton made it more difficult for immigrants to receive benefits (See: Bean, Frank and Gillian Stevens, America’s Newcomers and the Dynamics of Diversity. Russell Sage Foundation: New York, 2005).

1. Undocumented immigrants CANNOT receive benefits.

2. “Legal” immigrants can receive benefits after 5 years of being in the country.

NOTE: particular categories of immigrants (i.e. refugees) CAN immediately receive assistance.

3. Non-citizen military veterans automatically qualify.

4. Resident “aliens” who have worked for 40 quarters (10 years) can qualify for aid.

In 1999, 7.3 percent of immigrants, compared with 5.6 percent of citizens were on welfare—a difference of 1.7 percent (*Based on 2000 U.S. Census Data).

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS!!!!

More importantly, when we separate those immigrants on welfare by region, here’s what we find:

Immigrants from Latin America make up 8.8 percent of the total (7.3) percentage of immigrants on welfare (Bean and Stevens).

****Asian refugees make up 18.7 percent of the total (7.3) percentage of immigrants on welfare (Bean and Stevens).

In short, Asian refugees, not immigrants from Latin America, are the racial/ethnic group that is disproportionately on welfare [And, note: these Asian refugees have every right to access the welfare system according to U.S. policy].

One final thing, 

You start out by saying that immigration is having a massive demographic impact...which of course it is, and I fail to see why the demographic 'losers' should be happy about that.But then you try to claim the impact is minimal (the 1% figure).That's an internally inconsistent argument.I will say this, it is refreshing to debate with someone like you, ELA Chicano, who is informed on the issues -- though from a certain perspective -- rather than someone whose only response to inconvenient truths is 'pendejo!', 'white supremacist!' , klansman!, Spaniard-lover!.

"The spread of poverty across the United States that began at the onset of the Great Recession and accelerated last year hit one fast-growing demographic group especially hard: Latino children.* More Latino children are living in poverty—6.1 million in 2010—than children of any other racial or ethnic group.* This marks the first time in U.S. history that the single largest group of poor children is not white. For Latinos, this negative milestone is a product of their growing numbers, high birth rates and declining economic fortunes. Among Latino children living in poverty, ***more than two-thirds (4.1 million) are the children of immigrant parents while the other 2 million are the children of parents born in the U.S."***

From Pew Hispanic Trust. It is clear that large scale illegal and legal immigration is hurting 'Hispanics' themselves.

One 'Latino' crime I encourage you to look into the debate between pro Open Borders Ron Unz (he is an 'assimilationist') and the incredibly talented analyst Jason Richwine.

http://blog.american.com/autho...

It may or may not be true that immigrants are less prone to crime (Rimbault relies on self-reporting of immigrant status, but immigrant prisoners have a *huge* incentive to lie, namely deportation). But Latino immigrant children do seem to be significantly more crime-prone that Anglos. 

And I've actually published a review of Massey et al. so long ago I nearly forgot about it.

Since immigrants are *supposed* to be here to help the economy, 'do jobs Americans won't do" (tm) , etc shouldn't they be *less* prone to being on the government dole?

This is *not* an "ecological" fallacy when you understand that such percentages should or could possibly be statistically translated into ratios (i.e. the logic is that undocumented immigrant school-aged children would have to be miraculously and exponentially disproportionately represented in the public school system to negatively affect it. In short, the argument that undocumented immigrant children drain the system is a statistical impossibility--considering any reasonable ratio.

mitch young
mitch young

"So I ask: How can 1 percent of the U.S. population burden the public educational system?"

You are committing a classic 'ecological fallacy' -- comparing the *entire* US population with the school age population of illegals and their children. The proper comparison would be with the school age population of the US. Moreover, I think your numbers are wrong. In 2005 Pew had the number of illegal pupils -- not US birthright citiznes, but illegal immigrants, at 2.9 million. Surely between that and the birthrights, the number is way higher than 3.1 million.

I encourage you to go to Pew Hispanic Center now and look at their reports on poverty among 'Hispanic' children. It is clear that we are now importing poverty -- there are more poor 'Hispanic' children than white children or black children. And, going from memory, 2/3 of those poor children are born to immigrant parents.

Actually yeah you do get punished for seeding, been ticketed... never got arrested for being drunk, but yeah pretty sure theres a bunch of laws about drinking and driving and drunk in public. Yeah never had anything to do with drugs, but yeah pretty sure people go to jail everyday for drug possession. Pretty sure people get fined and or jail time for the severity of cheating on taxes. The Dream act is a scam, and a social program that even Jerry Brown hasn't put his name on it to sign it yet. It is a political death sentence. The problem is he fact that Americans are tired of the government doing everything in its power to give the hard working tax paying citizen of this country another screw job that does not benefit American citizens.I am sorry that illegal immigrants come to this country illegally. But when you then turn around and steal identities from people, lie and defraud a state for funds and aide then you are nothing more than a criminal. Yes they may not be the gun toting drug narco gang cartel murderous thugs.. but a petty criminal at best.I do not see these people once they find out, trying to correct the mistake and going thru proper channels to get citizenship. It is a misfortune but, they should respect the laws of the land and go thru legally at that point. However I do agree that exceptions can be made.. such as political and ethnic refuges for example.We can not continue to support this kind of increase, the increase in social program costs alone every year are amassing some of the largest debt in our system. I do not know about you, but between the last 12 years, plus the next 4.. we have and are going to be taxed and fee'd to the hilt. It has to stop. If these people want to be taken seriously, then hire a immigration lawyerand get in line like the rest of the people do who OBEY THE LAW.

I fundamentally don't agree that illegal immigrants are much of a massive drain on our economy.  Their cheap labor, which keeps us eating fresh fruit and vegtetables for a lot cheaper then we would otherwise, more than offsets the costs you mention. And ELAChicano's post above yours provides the stats.  As far as the crime thing, the point is, don't get all hypocritical about some poor immigrant committing the crime of trying to create a better life for their kids when millions of crimes committed by US-native-born people go unpunished every day.  If we made it easy for the kids of illegal immigrants to apply for US citizenship that would be great, but isn't that part of the whole intention of the Dream Act? I do respect your opinion on exceptions for political refugees, etc. so don't take this an insult - more honest disagreement.

mitch young
mitch young

"Their cheap labor, which keeps us eating fresh fruit and vegtetables for a lot cheaper then we would otherwise, more than offsets the costs you mention. "1) Only around 5%-10% of illegal immigrants work in agriculture, as anyone in SoCal should be able to realize without any statistics.

2) Actually labor costs are only around 10% of the final cost of produce, so growers could *triple* wages and you'd only see a 20% increase in prices -- significant but not the end of the world

3) Growers could, if they were willing to provide decent wages and working conditions, get all the temporary labor they needed under H-2b visas. 

4) There are alternatives to mass importation of stoop labor. Mas Masumoto has an adopt a peach tree program were Americans -- mostly white as far as I can see -- 'adopt' a peach tree and go out to pick its fruit. Many do this for charity fund raisers -- i.e. free! Even in North Orange County, when I was small kid, we used to have 'u pick' strawberry fields in Garden Grove. That model is used for berries all over the country.

5) Mechanization is also viable, even for fragile crops. 

http://www.usatoday.com/news/n...

Notice that story is from *four* years ago, yet today we have growers in Georgia bitching about not being able to get labor. Whiners.

6) Mexico is a country with fertile land, a lot of water in most of it, and a variety of climates and microclimates. Plus, supposedly, a workforce possessed of an almost god-like work ethnic. Ag businesses could, and are, moving production down there. It would be a win-win for everyone except developers, a few large growers, and ethno-activists if Mexican ag workers could stay in Mexico (they would be healthier, for one thing)

What *we* could do is given them some of the Colorado River's flow back. Of course you wont see developers or ethnic activists here advocating that, as it would be a de facto control on SoCal population growth.

Once again I will disagree with you on this. In this state there is an estimate 3 million illegal immigrants. Thats a huge number. Lets say the average family is 4(which in latino cultures it is more around 6-8) thats 750,000 families that are in the system. Thats alot of tax revenue not being collect to go back into the system. With the average person pay just in state tax alone close $2,500 lets just say that 20% of these people are able to work that is almost 1.5 billion in at least in taxable revenue. Unfortunately the drain on it is now close to $10 billion dollars this last fiscal year. So how is this sustainable?Why are we allowing this to continue.I respect your opinion, and I disagree to your stance.. but its gotta stop somewhere.http://www.usillegalaliens.com...here is a huge list of related fact that is compiled to what illegal immigrants are taking out of this country.

But, I enjoy free speech, so I won't ask for them to get off the air, but I certainly won't cry if they do get taken off.  Hopefully more on the air time for Phil Hendrie the master!

By the way, you assertion they hate mexicans is divisive in its own and is misleading.Mexican drug cartels and those murderous thieves over there I am pretty sure they hate.Illegal immigrants who lie, cheat and steal their ways into this country as oppose to going thruthe legal way.. pretty sure they hate.Republicans, Democrats, and Unions who abuse tax payer money for their own personal gains while at the expense of tax payers.. pretty sure they hate.Cops who beat up innocent homeless people.. yeah pretty sure they hate.But to say that they hate Mexicans, Latino's, and other races.. is a huge lie.I would like for you to point out your facts on this. Where is your proof and your sources?Once again talking to a wall on that as I have never seen you report the truth on any issue.So good luck with that I guess.Once again journalist integrity is non existent here.

Yeah lemme see I am pretty sure CHIRLA AND LA RAZA are guilty or their fair share of hateful speeches towards citizens who are legal citizens of this country. I am pretty sure you can youtube that.As a tax payer, these people are missing the god damn point. No one has an issue with immigration or people wanting to come to this country legally.The problem is the rash of illegal immigrants who come here illegally and bypass the system, when hard working immigrants wait and do all the right things.Then they bilk social programs which were intended for American citizens and people who reside here legally. I am sorry, but the people they should have this backlash over is themselves.Sorry I have no compassion, but how can I have compassion for people who steal others identities to forward their own agendas, defraud and waste state welfare programs, and people whose existence in this country is all based on a lie, and they cheat and steal for?

Hey Gustavo did you know AIS, a car insurance company, sponsors the John and Ken Show?  Kind of hurts your cause because Hispanics have already been boycotting car insurance for years.

Missing the fact. I am a Mexican-AMERICAN, YES, AMERICAN,NOT MEXICAN. I somewhat agree. Latino groups do NOTHING to champion the causeof other races, other than themselves. That makes them racist. Latino groupshould preserve our Mexican culture and not mingle in public policy for we areNOT MEXICANS anymore, we are AMERICANS. For we are American's, we shouldembrace America and NOT treat it like it "stole" our land. Wake up, it’sthe 21st century. By Championing the cause of Illegal Aliens, the Latino groupsact as traitors to America and then cite racism to anyone that opposes them.Our allegiance is to the United States and Not Mexico. Obey the laws of theland regardless if you agree with them or not. If you don't like them, thenpetition to change them. Until that happens, the rule of law still applies!

Hmmm.  I thought the Dream Act was a law. I believe that would satisfy your condition of "if you don't like them, then petitiont to change them."

KFI, along with John and Ken, achieved their highest ratings since 1972 yesterday. KFI is second only to sister station KIIS in the Los Angeles/Orange County radio ratings and higher by far than any spanish language station in Los Angeles. Thanks to John and Ken, KFI will become one of the top 10 billing radio stations in America this year.

Where ever you see a Piolin stick applied, you will find a racially motivated illegal alien supporter! Without fail!
