The Race Card

Out of all the possible reactions to the new conservative cartoon, “The Les Dowrey Show,” there is one thing that I never saw coming- the race card. Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s the liberal’s favorite trump card to play for anything and everything, but never in my wildest imaginations did I think I would be called a racist. Then again, imagine how Herman Cain must feel.

In the second episode of the show, Les Dowrey goes to the scene of the occupy Wall Street protests only to discover the stinky unemployed hippy protest is really a zombie outbreak. To save the world from the Zombies, Les Dowrey takes them to the one place where they are guaranteed not find any brains to eat- The Democratic National Convention. Think about all the possible reactions you could have to that episode… “That’s ridiculous!”…. “The protestors are too lazy to even be Zombies!”…. “Zombies smell better!”…Those are the reactions I assumed I would get, but no…leave it to some wild-eyed liberal to write me the following e-mail:

“To Whom It May Concern,

I was appalled today when I saw your show on Youtube. At first what seemed like innocent conservative psycho-babble, quickly turned into a vile minstrel show depicting our dear President, Barack Obama, as some sort of Big Lipped, Big Eared Aunt Jemima look-a-like that would make the likes of Republicans leaders like David Duke and Jesse Helms proud! You might as well have given him big red lips and a sign that said ‘Porch Monkey’ on it.

On top of your incredibly racist depiction of the President, it seems like in every episode of your new so-called Tea Party Cartoon, the progressives and liberal characters are given an effete and stereo typical ‘homosexual’ voice. What are you trying to say with this? First, not every Liberal is a homosexual, and secondly, even if they were- what’s the big deal?

Between the racism and homophobia, it is obvious that you are as narrow and close-minded as the Tea Party you claim to represent!”

Can you believe that e-mail? It’s unbelievable to me how quickly the liberals will play the race card, or attack the Tea Party as being homophobic or racist. Even crazier, they stand side-by-side with the Occupy Wall Street movement, which is obviously anti-semitic! It just goes to show you that liberal hypocrisy knows no bounds.

With that being said, I invite you to watch the Les Dowrey Show for yourself and see what you think.

Occupy Wall Street: Simple Protest or Zombie Attack?

A big thank you to all the conservatives and tea party members who supported the first episode of my new conservative cartoon, “The Les Dowrey Show.” After losing my talk radio job when my Midwestern station was purchased by a Spanish broadcasting group, I did not know what to do, but with the encouragement of many friends, family members, and fellow conservatives I spent several months developing the Tea Party’s answer to cartoons like Family Guy and South Park.

With that being said, I proudly present to you episode 2 of the Les Dowrey show. In this episode Les Dowrey decides to take on the Occupy Wall Street protestors, only to find out there is more to the unemployed mobs than meets the eye. Watch what happens when Les takes them on and ends up at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Needless to say it involves a Zombie Nancy Pelosi.

My family here at Free Republic has become very important to me as I have tried to deal with the job loss, and begin a new life, so I would appreciate any comments and thoughts that you might have on the show.

Preamble to a New Les Dowrey Life

Gone.  Everything was Gone.  After spending the past three years talking about victims of the Obama depression, I had become one.   Ever so slowly I watched as the local small business owners in my small mid-western town, crushed by over-taxation and burdensome regulation, had to shutter their doors one by one.  And as the local business owners began to vanish, so did the advertising dollars.  It wasn’t long before our independently owned, all-American, news talk station was purchased by a large company out of Mexico City.   My midday conservative talk show, Virtues and Values with Les Dowrey was replaced by Cumbia and Reggaeton music.  One more American job gone.

So there I was…jobless, penniless, and without healthcare.  What was I to do?  Should I file for unemployment, pretend to be disabled, stand in a line and wait for my Obama dollars to come through?  No….this is the time that separates the men from the boys, that separates Americans from Europeans.  It was time to pull myself up by bootstraps and get to work.

After searching far and wide for a new home for the Virtues and Values show it became quite obvious that every radio station in the country was having the same problem.   Companies just weren’t hiring, and so it was up to me to blaze my own trail.  Comforted by the thoughts of entrepreneurs who had previously been in my shoes, like Walt Disney, Sam Walton, and Andrew Carnegie, I pressed on, looking for that one good idea that was uniquely Les. 

That one good idea turned out to be the first conservative Tea Party cartoon.  Think of Family Guy, but from a conservative perspective…and the whole family can watch it!  For the past several months I’ve been hard at work assembling a team of conservative animators and writers and am proud to introduce to you the pilot episode of the “Les Dowrey Show.”
