Geraldo Demands O’Reilly Stop Saying “Illegal Alien”
Western Journalism ^ | 05-12-2013

Posted on 05/12/2013 11:31:52 PM PDT by Kevin in California

Why? Because Mr. Rivera likens it to calling someone a “negro” or a “homosexual.”

It's a toss-up who's the bigger idiot between Whore-Aldo and Blow-Reilly.

I think Jerry Rivers wins top idiota.

Someone said their local TV station used to say “Here’s Jerry Rivers with the weather!”

Illegal = breaking the law

Alien = from somewhere else, not a citizen

So what is Jerry’s problem with the terminology?

I think all this PC crud is about forcing everyone to quit using defining words. Once everybody has been conditioned enough, we will except we are all one big collective. No more individual.

‘Illegal alien’ is a legal term appearing in Federal statutes, as opposed to “Resident alien”.

There is nothing wrong with the word Negro. When, how & why it became considered a slur is something I can never grasp.

If yours was a serious question, and at the risk of being obvious, here's my serious answer. The word Negro, simply meaning black in Spanish and innocuous itself, finally [it took a while] came into disfavor because long ago a corruption of it resulted in the demeaning word "Nigger."

i didn’t know homosexual was a derogatory term. I thought it was the scientific term. I guess if we use a term for too long the Left will want a face lift because they don’t like the negativity associate with it. Don’t like Liberals? Progressives. Before long Progressives will be considered derogatory

Anyone calling Illegal Aliens “immigrants” is just insulting and slurring legal immigrants by lumping them with criminal Illegal Aliens.

We do not call shoplifters “customers” nor do we call bank robbers “depositors”......lets call Illegal Aliens by what they are.....they are not immigrants

True enough. Negro comes from Negroid, the proper terminology for the race (like Caucasoid or Mongoloid).

Negro and homosexual are proper terms and should be preferred over the PC term du jour.

To stifle free speech, the Left will attempt to change the meaning of any words at their whim and the media will carry the message for them to as many as they can.

And now you get stupidities like broadcasters referring to black people from Africa as “african-americans”.

This pretended fastidiousness about terminology has a long history, mirrored in religious disputes. But it is much sillier.

Perfectly acceptable terms have been denigrated in favor of new euphemisms, which after a time are themselves relegated to the list of condemned names.

An amusing part of this is that the named groups often hold on to the old terms, at least among themselves. The liberal intellectuals play with the new words, which they ceremoniously approve. Thus we are not to call people American Indians. When I have talked to actual people, they tell me that they are fine being called an Indian, and it is what they call themselves. But even they are eventually pressured into some new term. It was then “Native American,” as inaccurate a term as the one it replaced.

Homosexuals have demanded to be called “gay,” when usually they are not very gay at all (in the old sense of the world), but more often confused, fearful, angry, &c. Now they are lumped under LBTG or some such combination, very easily confused with LS/MFT.

People always wish to be called something which exalts themselves. It reminds me of a professor I knew, who was asked by a student how he should be addressed: Dr., Professor, or by his first name. His response was, that he preferred to be called “Your majesty.”
