Nancy Pelosi chides John Boehner over term Ďaliení in immigration debate
Washington Times ^ | 6/20/14 | Stephen Dinan

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office Friday chided House Speaker John A. Boehner for calling illegal immigrant children “aliens” in a Twitter message.

“Mr. Speaker, these comments and labels are inexcusable and reprehensible — no one should be politicizing the ordeal of these children in such a manner,” Mrs. Pelosi’s office said.

**SNIP**

Indeed, the Obama administration’s Homeland Security Department officially refers to the kids surging across the border as “Unaccompanied Alien Children.”

What is she talking about? Alien is the word that has been used for centuries.

Only Democrats are allowed to do that

It’s a technical legal term from a time when such things mattered to Democrats.

Exactly! That’s why she must make that word out of bounds.

If Boehner was a little more than a vegetable, he would realize this is a good opportunity to slam Pelosi and Obama. Obama has refused to enforce the law and has created this humanitarian crisis.

You can’t call an alien “illegal” or even “alien.” You can’t call a homo “homo.” And it ain’t nice to call a bitch “bitch” or an idiot “idiot,” but sometimes the truth is the truth and it just goes unsaid. But obvious.

The language must not be surrendered. Political correctness must be rendered obsolete. Proponents must be ostracized

Its an old tactic.

(amazon) Language of the Third Reich

In the book Victor Klemperer details how the nazis manipulated the German language as a means of manipulating German society into being more accepting of nazi goals.

Its kind of like the democrats bringing back indentured servitude and calling it a path to citizenship.

The only things “alien” to the wicked woman are the Constitution and US immigration laws...and perhaps a life without botox.
