No wonder these SJW's are always so grumpy.
Heh, idiots deserve every minute of it too.
In the latest Outrage Du Jour, they are seemingly consternated and constipated by the Department of Justice calling Illegal Aliens, Illegal Aliens.
Not Undocumented, not Unauthorized, Illegal.
Alien is a legal term used to describe people who are living here without citizenship.
Even the On line Dictionary and the Online Thesaurus have gone politically correct I see.
While they do give the definition of illegal alien, they go out of their way to make sure you know that calling people who enter this country in a manner against the laws here or over stay their visa an Alien is butthurt territory and you really shouldn't go there.
Illegal alien, illegal, undocumented, and unauthorized are labels used to describe people unlawfully residing in the United States, whether by clandestine border crossing, visa deadline violation, or other means. But the terms are not interchangeable. Each has a unique origin and connotation.
Alien is a term used in legal language for a noncitizen resident, regardless of whether that person resides in the country legally or illegally. The term in the United States is inherited from British law, and has been a legal designation for foreign-born residents since the Revolutionary era. While the term continues to be used by the Department of Homeland Security and the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a technical term in legal documents, it is not preferred in general discourse. As alien is a word that is also associated with extraterrestrial life, it is perceived as dehumanizing when applied to immigrants.
Illegal alien is a designation for unlawful immigrants that was previously widely used, but is now associated with anti-immigration policies and advocates.
Though the adjectival usage of illegal (illegal immigrant, illegal resident) may have an anti-immigration connotation, it is still largely accepted. However, as a noun, illegal is highly offensive. This noun implies deviance or emphasizes the criminality of an individual whose only crime would have been illegal entry into the country or an overstayed visa.
I put that little blurb there at the end there in bold just to point out that by going as politically correct as they possibly could, they still couldn't get around the fact that it is in fact, illegal.
As for calling them illegal and it being highly offensive, someone needs to point out to these knuckle heads that IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE!
Why is that so hard to wrap your head around?
Fuck you people.
Your word salad games are just that and by getting all wound up over it all you are trying to do is cover up the fact that all of these people are in this country illegally and you want everyone to overlook that by labeling it something, "less offensive".
That offends me you jackasses.
Of course my opinion doesn't count because I am an aging white skinned male and a hate mongering radical motherfucker with some sort of imaginary privileges.
Fuck you people some more.
There is no end in sight for this stupidity so you will keep seeing these little skirmishes until the day you die but I thoroughly enjoy rubbing shit in the faces of these ignorant cocksuckers so every once in a while I like to lob one at 'em just to stir the pot.
Dumb bastards anyways.
