This Post Has Been Moved.
First let me say that I am a fan of Art Bell and Coast To Coast am. I find the shows to be interesting, though somewhat unbelievable at times, and always find myself hooked on what ever topic is hosted by either George Noory or Art Bell.
When George Noory took over for Art, I found myself in quite a somber mood, sort of like when Star Trek TNG replaced the original Star Trek. Would I accept Capt.Picard after being a loyal fan of Capt.Kirk? The answer is Who cares, they were both great actors, and great shows.
The same can be said for Coast to Coast….except for the who cares part. Now that said, on to my original post:
I have had quite a response to my posts about Art Bell, however, The one in particular, that I want to comment on is titled “Art Bell’s Alleged Letter To The Filipino People“
I want to continue to stress that I do not believe that this letter came from Art Bell.
I have re-posted the letter at the above link, to show both the racist content, the high-school style, and form of the letter.
Art is too intelligent of a man to write in the style and content of that letter, not to mention that art is married to a Filipino lady. I have also received comments and read articles stating that some people think that the death of Art’s former wife, Ramona, was more than a little suspicious. I also do not agree with this, but that is just my opinion. I have posted a survey here. Just to see what my visitors think. (so far my largest responders, and visitors to the poll, are from Ham radio groups and other Yahoo groups)
Here is a recap of what I posted about Ramona Bell’s death:
Ramona Bell, his wife of fifteen years, died unexpectedly of what
appeared to be an acute asthma attack on January 5, 2006 in Laughlin,
Nevada, where the couple was taking a short vacation. She was 47 years
old. The events surrounding her death were described, in great detail,
by Art Bell during the January 22 broadcast of Coast to Coast AM. For
weeks thereafter, callers would express their sadness and sympathy for
Art Bell to George Noory who had taken Art Bell’s place weekdays in 2002
For those of you who are unfamiliar with who Art Bell is, you must be living under a rock, here is some information on Art:
Arthur “Art” Bell, III (born June 17, 1945) is an American broadcaster and author, known primarily as the founder and a longtime host of the paranormal-themed radio program Coast to Coast AM. He also created and at one time hosted its companion show, .
Semi-retired from Coast to Coast AM, he returned from his
hiatus from hosting the weekend broadcasts but then took another leave
while technical problems are worked out. Bell also owns oldies station: KNYE 95.1 FM (”The Kingdom of Nye … Things That Go Pahrump In The Night”) in Pahrump, Nevada.
As of August 2006, Bell is the regular weekend host on Coast to Coast AM, broadcasting from Metro Manila in the Philippines. Currently his interviews are focused on scientific topics rather than on his former paranormal interests.
There was a huge response to this post and the poll shows that an overwhelming 85% of you thought that Art had something to do with Ramona’s death.
In light of the great response from that poll, we have started another poll, this one is a about Art. New Poll is active for Art Bell HERE
Just three months after losing wife Ramona to complications from asthma, “Coast- to- Coast AM” host Art Bell has moved to the Philippines and remarried.
After several weeks of mourning, he had recently gone to the Philippines and married Airyn Ruiz, a recent college graduate
Sorry to inform the few people here who can be rational and think, but the comments for this post are now closed. Due to the hateful and racist comments I have been receiving lately, I have no choice but to stop all comments. Please feel free to read the original post and most of the comments.
Below is a copy of the letter that Art Bell talked about on the show, Coast to Coast am.
In my opinion, the structure and quality of this letter, does not look like something that someone as intelligent as Art Bell, would write
“As we’ve all come to notice, in the past few decades, Filipinos have begun to infest the United States like some sort of disease. Their extensive involvement in the U.S. Armed Forces is proof of the trashy kind of qualities all Filipinos tend to exhibit on a regular basis. You can see this clearly by studying the attitudes and cultural Icons of most Filipino Americans.
Are they really Asian? Well we’ve come to accept the fact the Filipinos come from a part of the world known as South East Asia. But the term “Asia” is used in the wrong way. You may notice that contemporary Filipino Americans try very hard to associate themselves with groups that we know as Asian. I cannot count the number of times I have seen a ‘ Third World ‘ Filipino try to connect themselves to the Chinese or Japanese people. There is no connection and here’s why. The Philippines is a Third World country. Nothing respectable has EVER been created by Filipino people during our entire human history. Young Filipino men in America have become obsessed with “import racing”. They have an enormously perverted affection for Japanese cars. It’s a common phenomenon. In their minds, these Filipinos somehow believe that they are Asian and that it somehow connects them to Japanese people and Japanese cars. They often take credit for the ingenuity of Japanese people and say how it’s an “Asian thing”. This term…”Asian thing” derived directly from African American slang “black thang.” “It’s a black thang.” “It’s an Asian thang.”
You can see the connection. It’s even funnier that, in Japan, Filipinos are heavily discriminated against. The only Filipinos that can live successfully in Japan are the Filipino prostitutes. But that’s the case for most Filipino people no matter where they live in the world. Now we’ve come down to this fact…and it is a fact.
Nothing in Filipino Culture can be seen as Asian. They have no architectural, artistic, or cultural influence which is in any way, Asian. Thinking of the great countries in Asia such as Japan , Korea , and China there is no way you can possibly connect the Philippine Islands. This assault by Filipino Americans to connect themselves with the great peoples of North East Asia is foul and disgusting. Try visiting a young Filipino’s web site too.
You’ll see something called the “Asian IRC Ring”. It has to do with the chat rooms. The most horrible thing about this is that these TRASHY people are trying to associate themselves with Asia again!! People in Asia don’t act like this at all. What we are seeing here is the natural Filipino in its element with full access to technology and this is how they act! You will consistently see this behavior over and over again.
Another interesting thing is that these “third world” people also frequent RC chat rooms such as Chinese, Japan and Asian. They must believe that they are somehow related racially or culturally to North Asians. But it’s completely WRONG! There might have been some distant contact With China and even less with Japan during World War II, but these people are actually more closely related to African Americans and Mexican Americans.
Do the parents of these young Filipinos know what’s going on? Would they accept this? I believe that they would and do. This is the natural “Trash” element in Filipinos manifesting itself. Nothing good has ever come from Philippines and I don’t believe anything good ever will.
Recognizing your Roots (A Message to Filipinos). To all Filipino people: Please recognize your ROOTS! You come from the Third World ! You country is a disgusting and filthy place. Most people there live in poverty! Your culture has MUCH MORE SPANISH influence than Chinese, and absolutely no JAPANESE influence whatsoever. People in Japan and China , d o not act like you. They do not constantly talk about sex and they have a MUCH HIGHER level of RESPECT for each other. There is NO WAY that you can connect yourself to Asia other than location.
Your culture and technological advancement does no! t even come CLOSE to What Chinese, people have done in the past and what Japanese and Korean people are doing now! Everything you do is distinctly Filipino. You cannot take credit for Japanese cars, video games, or Hentai! It’s not an “Asian thing” it’s an “American thing”. You have no concept of culture…no concept of Asian ideas or Asian philosophy! Can you demonstrate how you use Confucianism or Taoism in you everyday life?? You can’t. And you will NEVER be able to.
I understand that you are trying to create an identity for yourselves as young people… but it is NOT related to Asia. Your Identity is Filipino.
That’s all you are. Just Filipino. Think about what that means.
