Pakistani Girl Is Raped and Buried Alive

Pakistan is a bad place to be born female because of the brutal misogyny deeply embedded in Islam and the tribal culture. A 13-year-old recently had to dig herself out of a muddy grave after being raped and buried alive by two men as she walked to her Koran class.

Another teenager, Malala Yousafzai, has recently gotten attention for her recent book describing her struggle for girls’ education there, which got her shot in the head by the Taliban.

Child rape is a particular problem in Pakistan because men believe sex with a little girl will cure AIDS.

Why does America continue to admit Muslim immigrants from Pakistan? Not every one is a bloodthirsty wife-beheader like Muzzammil Hassan, but why import such a barbaric culture in the name of diversity when there are many civilized people who would like to resettle here?

The 2010 Census counted 363,699 Pakistanis occupying US space, although their embassy puts the number at over 700,000.

Below, a street in the Little Pakistan neighborhood of Brooklyn has no women in evidence. New York City is the residence of more than 41,000 Pakistanis.

But back to the Pakistan child-rape story:

Teenage girl in Pakistan digs herself out of muddy grave after being raped and then buried alive, Australian News, October 29, 2013

A 13-year-old girl has dug herself out of a muddy grave after being raped by two men who then buried her alive in Pakistan.

The teen was abducted from her local village in the Punjab province while she was walking to Koran lessons.

Her father Siddique Mughal told police his daughter had been taken, but they refused to cooperate, Outlook India reported.

The men took the young girl to an isolated place and raped her and then buried her alive as they believed she died during the brutal attack.

But the girl managed to dig her way out the muddy grave and caught the attention of passers-by who helped her to a local medical centre. Continue reading this article

Rasmussen Poll: Voters Split Evenly between Obama and Tea Party with 42 Percent Each

Tuesday’s poll data was quite a surprise considered from the viewpoint of the efficacy of the propaganda media. The drumbeat Opravda voices have been incessantly insisting the Tea Party to be evil and racist, so any decent showing by the group in polling is worth noting.

Tea Party bashing has become quite the sport for liberals and the uber-left. Earlier this week Sean Penn, Hollywood leftist and pal of commie dictators, suggested on CNN that Obama employ his much-used executive pen to commit Sen. Ted Cruz and other Tea Party members of Congress to an insane asylum.

Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) recently sent out a fund-raising mailer comparing Tea Party to the KKK, to much outrage from Republicans but no apology was forthcoming.

The attacks are vicious, and considerably overblown against a citizen group that merely campaigns for Constitutional government and against profligate overspending. The issues are mainstream and widely supported, yet the media gives supportive coverage to far left enemies of the Tea Party.

When George Bush was President, dissent was patriotic, at least according to the liberal press, but now not so much. It’s hard to argue against law and responsible budgets, so the debate has been shifted into emotional areas like inequality and race, with distractions like the Trayvon case taking up truckloads of ink while the debt clock ticked away.

Unlike the violent Occupy movement, the Tea Party represents genuine grassroots American values, which makes it highly threatening to the left.

With all the abuse piled upon them by powerful liberal forces, Tea Partiers have done quite well to poll equal to the President, though the details get a little sketchy. Imagine if the media treated the Tea Party as positively as it did the Occupiers.

42% Identify with Obama Politically, 42% with the Tea Party, Rasmussen Reports, October 29, 2013

Voters are evenly divided when asked whether they agree more politically with President Obama or with the average member of the Tea Party. But an enormous partisan gap colors virtually all opinions of the Tea Party.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president’s views are closest to their own when it comes to the major issues facing the country. But just as many (42%) say their views come closest to those of the average Tea Party member instead. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This marks a small setback for the Tea Party from April 2010 when 48% felt closest to the average Tea Party member, while 44% said they had more in common with the president

Thirty-four percent (34%) now believe their personal views are closest to those of the average member of Congress when it comes to the major issues of the day. But slightly more (36%) say their views are closest to those of the average member of the Tea Party. A sizable 30%, however, are not sure. Continue reading this article

Kenya Deports Illegal Somalis to Homeland

In Kenya, the government is beginning to deport, er “repatriate” Somalis after the horrific Nairobi mall attack in September. The BBC report linked below didn’t like the word “deport” apparently, because it was not used.

“Repatriate” is more positive though, since it sounds like “patriot” and is based on the Latin “patria” meaning “native land.” The word “deport” also comes from Latin, specifically “deportare” meaning to “carry away” — according to the Apple dictionary built into my Mac.

And foreigners are often happy to be returned for free to their patria, where they can speak their native language all day long and live in their own culture, with no annoying assimilation expected of them.

Anyway, tensions between Kenyans and squatter Somalis are not new. (See my 2011 blog Nairobi’s Little Mogadishu Creates Unease among Kenyans.) Somalis seem to be a pain in the neck wherever they land, and next-door neighbor Kenya is no exception. Plus Kenya is 80 percent Christian, while Somalia is 99.9 percent jihad-friendly Muslim.

But at least in this case we don’t hear shrieks of “racism” about the Kenyan repatriation, since everyone involved is a black African.

Westgate attack: Kenya sacks immigration officers, BBC, October 25, 2013

Kenya’s interior minister has sacked 15 immigration officers as investigations into the Westgate mall siege continue.

Joseph Ole Lenku said the officials had endangered national security by issuing ID documents to illegal immigrants.

He also said the government would start repatriating Somali refugees to prevent further attacks.

At least 67 people died when militants from the Somali Islamist al-Shabab group attacked the Nairobi shopping centre last month.

Kenya is host to the largest refugee camp in the world, Dadaab – home to about half a million people – near the Somali border, while it is believed that more than 30,000 Somali refugees live in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, alone.

‘Welcomed with open arms’
Mr Lenku said the sacked immigration officers would appear in court to face the law.

The government would also be carrying out a thorough audit of identity cards and passports issued in the country in the last two years, he said.

“This exercise will enable us flush out all those who have been issued with illegal passports and other identification documents,” Kenya’s Star newspaper quoted him as saying.

“We have welcomed with open arms, refugees fleeing from insecurity in neighbouring countries but we won’t allow them to harm us,” he added in his address to journalists in Nairobi.

“Because of the returning calm in some parts of the Federal Republic of Somali, the process of repatriating Somali refugees has started,” he said.

Kenya has about 4,000 troops in the south of Somalia as part of the UN-backed African Union force which has made significant advances against al-Shabab in the last two years, recapturing the area’s main cities. Continue reading this article

Hispanic Democrat Peddles Amnesty Scheme with Mendacious Promises

Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson was spouting whoppers about the benefits of illegal alien amnesty on Saturday, saying he sees “rays of hope” in next week’s fly-in to Washington by business leaders to batter House Republicans into submission and that the President will deign to take a piecemeal approach (and count on Harry Reid’s conference wolves to make legalization happen for millions).

You can tell that one of the Democrat talking points is that mass amnesty is “good for the economy” because it is so frequently mentioned, even though the CBO reported that the Senate bill would reduce average wages in America for 12 years, increase unemployment for 7 years and reduce per capita GNP growth over 25 years.

Oh, and Robert Rector estimated the cost of amnesty to taxpayers would be $6.3 trillion.

The amnesty is like all the lies of Obamacare, only in Spanish.

Richardson stated openly, “Now as long as the path to citizenship of the 11 million is kept in an immigration bill, the House and Senate can move into a conference committee and then come out I think with a comprehensive package.”

In other words, walk into the trap, stupid Republicans.

Radio host Laura Ingraham has been grilling members of Congress on their position about going to conference with the Senate sharks, and she is a tough grader. She cross-examined Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) on October 25 about his position on conferencing and found his arguments inadequate for a passing grade: the title on the interview reads, “Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) supports immigration reform in the House.”

The idea is that even good legislation from the House will get rammed into a legalization deal, particularly with squishy Republican conferees. Texas Congressman Steve Stockman wrote a Dear Colleague letter to warn of the conference trap.

It’s too bad more conservative radio talkers don’t keep this issue front and center as Ingraham does. Rush Limbaugh is worse than useless, and he appears to have given up. Mass amnesty is the biggest threat to the country, worse than Obamacare, because legislation can be changed, but the big-government culture of hispanics has shown itself to last for generations. And culture forms politics, not the other way around.

Camp of the Saints Author Fears for the Future of European Civilization

Jean Raspail, the author of Camp of the Saints, was recently interviewed by the French publication Valeurs Actuelles. The 1973 novel described a dystopian future in which millions of third worlders took to boats to migrate to Europe, a narrative that looks more like prophecy by the day, as Europe fears to turn away the masses of foreign invaders who demand a first-world lifestyle.

Below, Italian police on the besieged island of Lampedusa try to control Africans who insist upon being admitted to continental Europe.

The blog IslamVersusEurope has helpfully translated the interview into English, and the author is not optimistic.

Jean Raspail, author of Camp of the Saints: “Our civilisation is disappearing”, October 26, 2013

What do you feel about the current situation?

You know, I’ve no wish to join the big group of intellectuals who spend their time debating immigration… I have the impression that these talks serve no purpose. The people already know it all, intuitively: that France, as our ancestors fashioned it centuries ago, is disappearing. And that we keep the gallery amused by talking ceaselessly of immigration without ever saying the final truth. A truth that is moreover unsayable, as my friend Jean Cau noted, because whoever says it is immediately hounded, condemned then rejected. Richard Millet came close to it, look what happened to him! [See here for more on this].

Is the seriousness of the problem being kept from the French people?

Yes. Starting with the politicians in charge first of all! Publicly “everything’s going well, Madame Marquessa”. But behind closed doors, they acknowledge that “yes, you’re right: there is a real problem”. I have several edifying letters on this subject from prominent leftist politicians, from those on the right too, to whom I sent the Camp of the Saints. “But you understand: we can’t say it …” These people have a double language, a double conscience. I don’t know how they do it! I think the distress comes from there: the people know that things are being hidden from them. Today, tens of millions of people don’t buy into the official discourse on immigration. Not one of them believes that it is an opportunity for France “une chance pour la France”. Because reality imposes itself on them, every day. All of these ideas boil in their heads and don’t come out.

You don’t believe it’s possible to assimilate the foreigners welcomed into France?

No. The model of integration isn’t working. Even if a few more illegals are escorted to the border and we succeed in integrating foreigners a bit more than today, their numbers will not stop growing and that will change nothing in the fundamental problem: the progressive invasion of France and Europe by a numberless third-world. I’m not a prophet, but you see clearly the fragility of these countries, where an unbearable poverty is established and grows ceaselessly alongside indecent wealth. Those people don’t turn to their governments to protest. They expect nothing of them. Continue reading this article

Canada (and Beyond): Schools Crack Down on Halloween

The political correctness brigade has now focused its sights on Halloween, just in case some diverse kid doesn’t feel included (even though no actual complaints have been found). And what student would object to replacing the daily grind of study with some candy and goofing off? As SunTV guy David Menzies notes, one school has prohibited the munchkins from dressing up and has renamed the occasion Black and Orange Day. The Toronto School Board has issued an advisory warning about all the bad things associated with Halloween.

We have become accustomed to the suppression of Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter so sensitive Muslim headchoppers won’t feel put out, but Halloween? The pagan backstory of the celebration would seem to make it a winner to the liberal esthetic. Aren’t wiccans a protected class in leftist ideology, as evidenced by the US military being forced to accept wicca practices?

Below, even former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has embraced Halloween wicca diversity.

Meanwhile, in American colleges, the PC prohibitions are expanding. Indian and Arab outfits are not acceptable at campus parties, and definitely no sombreros!

As a memo to students from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities noted:

“In particular, please keep in mind that certain Halloween costumes inappropriately perpetuate racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes,” it continues. “Although it may not be the intent, these costumes, and choosing to wear them, can depict identities in ways that are offensive or hurtful to others”

Trust-in-Government Deficit: Only 5% of Voters Believe Immigration Amnesty Will Include Genuine Border Enforcement

Recent Rasmussen poll results reflect the lack of faith with which the public regards the Washington swamp of corruption. The White House and Congress should be embarrassed, but they are incapable of feeling shame and don’t even pretend to carry out the wishes of the American citizens any more.

Normal law-abiding people, here and around the world, want immigration to be legal, controlled and reduced. But billionaires like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg want to overrun the country with cheap-labor foreigners just to make a few more million dollars.

Zuckerberg has made a show of supporting hispanic illegal aliens like Jose Varga, the annoying loudmouth scribbler. But non-tech types are just props in Zuck’s media presentations; a borderless world of free-flowing tech workers is what the Silicon Valley mafia wants.

Anyway, the little citizens aren’t buying the song and dance.

5% Think Feds Very Likely to Seal Border if New Immigration Law Passes, Rasmussen Reports, October 23, 2013

Most voters continue to put more border control first in any immigration reform plan, but fewer than ever trust the federal government to actually control the border if a new plan is passed. Voters also lean toward a go-slow piece-by-piece approach to immigration reform over a comprehensive bill.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 25% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is even somewhat likely that the federal government will actually secure the border and prevent illegal immigration if that’s part of new immigration legislation. Sixty-five percent (65%) consider it unlikely. This includes only five percent (5%) who say the government is Very Likely to secure the border if it’s part of legislation that would give legal status to those already here illegally and 24% who feel it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Confidence in the likelihood of the federal government actually securing the border fell to a previous low of 28% in late June from a high of 45% in January. This skepticism continues to be perhaps the biggest problem immigration reformers face.

Republicans want proof that the border has been secured to prevent further illegal immigration before allowing legalization of those now here illegally to go forward. The president believes the legalization process and the implementation of more border security should take place at the same time.

But only 18% of voters believe those who are now in this country illegally should be granted legal status right away. Sixty-two percent (62%) disagree and think legalization should come only after the border is secured. Nineteen percent (19%) are not sure. These attitudes are unchanged from past surveys.

Italy Seeks EU Help in African Boat People Crisis

Europe’s weakness in refusing to defend itself from a Camp-of-the-Saints-style invasion of diverse “refugees” continues to simmer. Around 350 African boaters arrived Tuesday on Italian territory, and the EU requires that the European country where fleebags land has to take them. Italy’s southern islands, particularly tiny Lampedusa, have been overwhelmed by the flood of Africans, some escaping the Arab Spring and others seeking a ready-made first-world lifestyle.

Unfortunately, European elites are too afflicted with liberal notions of virtue to see a civilization-threatening invasion when it is upon them. Perhaps Europe can absorb a million third-worlders per year, even with a bad economy, but it cannot survive 10 or 20 million annually, and there’s no reason why that number wouldn’t come if the dissatisfied of Africa see Europe putting out the welcome mat for everyone. Plus, Africa is on track to double in population over the next 40 years, so the pressure to flee is bound to increase.

Below, Africans heading for Italian territory in 2011.

Egypt, for example, is a very crowded 82 million persons, and the New York Times reported this week that disappointment in the nation’s political direction has convinced increasing numbers to leave. Naturally the attitude is one of immigration entitlement, that the millions who want to move somewhere better can do so, and the citizens of the target nation have no say in the matter.

Which they increasingly don’t, because the elites who run things have a different idea about national sovereignty.

In 2011 the Lampedusa people demanded and got assurances from the Italian government that the boatloads of Africans would stop and most would be repatriated to Tunisia, but now the problem is as bad as ever.

RT had a decent video piece about of the situation:

The IslamVersusEurope blog recently posted this item of “asylum seekers” on Sicily demanding that their claims be processed more quickly, which looks more like a riot than a plea for better service.

Here’s more from about Italy’s efforts to make Brussels get involved in sorting out the chaos by spreading the problem around.

Italy urges EU to share burden of migrant crisis,, October 23, 2013

Italy demands an urgent shakeup of Europe’s asylum policies, as it bears the brunt of a large-scale inflow of illegal migrants from the Middle East and Africa. A leaked draft EU summit statement, however, promises no radical steps until June next year.

Aseter, a young Ethiopian in Sicily, says she is lucky. She was on a refugee boat heading from Africa to Italy the same day another boat like hers capsized in the Mediterranean, killing more than 300 asylum-seekers.

She is now prepared to put her luck to test once again, by illegally crossing EU borders together with her two companions. She is not new to taking risks, as she had to first go by foot from Ethiopia to Sudan, then travel to Libya to finally take the most nerve-racking boat ride of her life.

“In Sicily we managed to avoid getting registered. It’s illegal but we need to go further north – there’s nothing here for us,” Aseter tells RT correspondent Egor Piskunov, while she hides her face from the camera.

Under EU regulation all newcomers must seek asylum in the country where they arrive. And under Italian law anyone avoiding registration is sent home.

That does not prevent newcomers from taking their chances of trying to stay unregistered until reaching an EU country with what seems to them better opportunities. Shiferaw Genene, President of Italian Association of the Ethiopian Community believes it’s only natural.

“When you arrive here [in Italy] they give you the very minimum,” Genene told RT. “There’s no jobs, no school and you sleep in the street for six months.

Italy is one of the worst European states in this regard.” 

Italy and Greece are the most affected by the influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. And that puts huge pressure on their economies, already burdened by recession. Continue reading this article

Documentary Reveals Muslims’ Jihad Plans for America

When filmmaker Steve Emerson called his documentary “The Grand Deception” he was referring to pro-jihad groups in America which pretend to be civil rights advocates for Muslims, but in fact support the tyrannical rule of Islam worldwide with the US being one part.

Emerson appeared on Fox News recently, with informative clips from the film. He pointed out how effective the Islamic stealth strategy has been, insinuating itself into the highest levels of power in both Democrat and Republican administrations. The jihadists have even been successful in getting the FBI to remove instructional materials called “offensive to Islam” that were actually useful teaching aids for agents to understand the enemy.

In 2009, a gaggle of Muslims performed the up-butt salute at the US Capitol. Do they see it as a future mosque?

Of course, it is diverse immigration that has admitted Muslims into our nation creating this threat. Followers of Islam are the historic 1400-year enemies of Christians, Jews and western beliefs, who spread their religion by the sword — join or be killed. It was a big mistake in public policy to welcome enemies which should end now.

Rep. Ted Poe Flip-Flops Back to Borders and Sovereignty

In August, Ted Poe let it be known that he had switched positions to support the open-borders crowd, after a career of law enforcement as a judge and later authoring notable legislation to protect public safety, in particular forcing riffraff nations to accept their criminal deported aliens. Apparently, he thought his total one-eighty would be little noticed (see Rep. Ted Poe Hopes Switch to Amnesty Won’t Be a Problem).

Now he is back with another reversal and a weak excuse: he just noticed that the President has a winner-take-all approach to making deals with Congress. Whoa, who knew?

“The President has proven over the last few weeks that ‘negotiating’ means conservatives must give in and that it’s his way or no way,” Poe recently remarked to Breitbart.

Well, that’s a revelation!

Poe also stated, “Conservatives want to do what’s best for our nation.”

We’ll keep that quote in mind in case of another flip-flop to America-destroying amnesty.

Below, Rep. Poe back in his border-defending days (to which he has returned now he says).

More likely than a revelation about the President is that Poe’s constituents in Texas told him not to expect their votes next election. That’s just a wild guess on my part though.

At any rate, keep those calls and letters coming to squishy congressmen!

Exclusive: Obama Inspires GOP Congressman to Drop Immigration Reform,, October 21, 2013

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), the vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, has changed his mind and now opposes any efforts to grant amnesty to America’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants. Poe said his stance is a specifically a result of President Barack Obama’s style of dealing with congressional Republicans during the recent government shutdown and debt ceiling battles.

“The President has proven over the last few weeks that ‘negotiating’ means conservatives must give in and that it’s his way or no way,” Poe said in an email to Breitbart News. “In his opinion, there is no compromise, just intimidation with inflammatory rhetoric. The President is putting his political agenda ahead of what’s best for America.”

“He wants to do what’s best for his legacy,” the Congressman said of the President. “Conservatives want to do what’s best for our nation.”

Poe added that he thinks “there’s no question that our broken immigration system needs a lot of work.”

“That’s why conservatives will still work on individual bills, such as border security, interior enforcement, E-verify and filling our future labor needs,” Poe explained. “Future, temporary, foreign workers must not displace any American. Conservatives will not support a wrapped up present with amnesty inside. Amnesty, to quote the President, is not negotiable.”

Poe’s decision to turn against amnesty comes on the heels of Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), a supporter of immigration reform, saying it would be “crazy” for House GOP leadership to negotiate with the Senate and President Obama on the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill because Obama’s motives with it are not pure. Obama is using this debate to try to “destroy” the Republican Party, Labrador said. Continue reading this article

New York: Candidate Bill de Blasio Pledges Less Surveillance of Muslims

The liberal Democrat candidate who is the apparent front-runner for mayor of New York City has aroused a certain amount of concern over his statement that he would end the current level of normal scrutiny of Muslims by the NYPD.

The candidate has been using his squishy public safety stance to appeal to Muslim voters, who apparently don’t care about the place being blown up. The number of Allah worshippers is estimated to be anywhere from 800,000 to 1 million, so there are votes to be had by pandering against the general good.

As a young man, de Blasio traveled to Nicaraugua to help the Marxist Sandinistas, so that background is a hint about where he stands.

Since 9/11, the top priority of policing has moved to prevention of terror rather than arresting the perps afterward. That means surveillance and infiltration, which are not the most comfortable ways to pursue public safety in a free society, but diverse immigration has admitted many unfriendlies into our communities and now spying is what we must do.

Of course, the real solution is to end Muslim immigration and unwelcome the rest, since admitting potential enemies is bad public policy, period. There is nothing to be gained by Muslim immigration, only diverse new ways to decrease our freedom.

De Blasio Tells Muslims He’ll End Broad NYPD Spying If Elected, CBS New York, October 16, 2013

Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio told a group of Muslim supporters Wednesday that they won’t have to live in fear of being under constant surveillance if he’s elected mayor.

As WCBS 880′s Jim Smith reported, de Blasio, the front-runner in the Nov. 5 general election, said that, on his watch, NYPD surveillance tactics would only be authorized to follow up on specific leads and that the police force would be under the supervision of a new inspector general.

“The efforts of surveillance have to be based on specifically specific information, and obviously you need to go through a careful vetting process,” de Blasio said during a rally at Columbus Park in Downtown Brooklyn.

Based on internal NYPD reports and interviews with officials involved in the programs, the NYPD has conducted wholesale surveillance of entire Muslim neighborhoods, chronicling daily life including where people eat, pray and get their hair cut, according to a series of reports by The Associated Press. Police also reportedly infiltrated dozens of mosques and Muslim student groups.

In addition, the NYPD secretly labeled entire mosques as terrorism organizations, a designation that allows police to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams, often without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing, according to the AP. Continue reading this article

More Abuse Charges against Amnesty Radio Mouthpiece Piolin

In Los Angeles, Spanish-language radio star Piolin Sotelo has been a long-time amnesty loudmouth. When Barack Obama barnstorms the city, he has frequently dropped by the studio to visit his pal Piolin and promise a big legalization law for the listeners real soon.

The ugly truth about Piolin has been accumulating for a while, particularly since last July when Univision fired him. You knew the charges were substantial for Univision to release one of its most popular Spanish chatterboxes, a man who personally shares the illegal alien experience.

He allegedly used his staff to forge letters of support for an amnesty campaign, which was doubtless a big strain on them. More serious were the sexual abuse charges, details of which are coming out.

Also, it just looks bad when a media face of the amnesty movement is shown to be an office dictator with shocking habits like humping and biting subordinates. At the height of his power, Piolin was ranked as among the 100 Most Powerful People in Southern California by the LA Times. The late Ted Kennedy was celebrated in an appearance on the radio show — perhaps he and Piolin swapped hints off-mike about fun things to do with underlings.

And make no mistake, Spanish-language media is vital in organizing the anti-sovereignty movement of foreign nationals. It’s too bad Piolin’s staffers didn’t pipe up earlier.

Former ‘Piolin’ staffers allege they suffered years of abuse, LA Times, October 19, 2013

Legal wrangling between Spanish-language radio star Eduardo “Piolín” Sotelo and six former staff members dialed up this week with new allegations of harassment and boorish behavior.

The former staffers worked with Sotelo when he hosted his wildly popular “Piolín por la Mañana” program on Univision Radio. However, the staffers were let go long before Sotelo’s program was abruptly canceled by the Spanish-language media conglomerate on July 22.

Sotelo sued the group of ex-staff members in Los Angeles County Superior Court in late August, alleging they had banded together to try to extort as much as $4.9 million from him. In response, lawyers for the group filed a lengthy motion on Oct. 15, asking a judge to strike Sotelo’s lawsuit.

Friday marked Sotelo’s return to radio with a new four-hour program on SiriusXM called “El Show de Piolín.” After Univision severed ties with Sotelo, SiriusXM leaped to sign him to be the centerpiece of the company’s effort to attract more Latino listeners.

Sotelo, 42, now is broadcasting from a new SiriusXM recording studio on Wilshire Boulevard.

In their motion, the six former workers alleged that as Sotelo’s Univision career began to soar — around 2006 — his behavior toward staff members turned increasingly abusive. He allegedly humiliated workers by calling them derogatory names, licking and biting them, rubbing his body against theirs, and grabbing his genitals.

“Sotelo bit two of the staffer defendants so hard that they had visible marks on their shoulders for days,” the motion said.

The group tolerated the alleged behavior, the filing said, because they feared they would lose their jobs if they complained. Continue reading this article
