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

Posted on 06/20/2014 3:41:31 PM PDT by Libloather

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.

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.

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.

when liberals try these crowd manipulation tricks the Republicans and conservatives should respond with another tactic that liberals themselves use — the double down. Start using the term twice as often and emphasis the so-called controversial word or phrase.

One simple example of this I can recall was when liberals would use the term “cuts” when the budget was actually growing. Pubs called them on it and dems would then start to slowly emphasis the word “cuts” and use it even more often. These are mild tactics yet the pubs do not regularly use these simple yet fairly effective techniques.

It’s the technical legal term, Nancy. Section 101(a)(3) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. Since it’s already been passed, you should already know it’s in there.

Archbishop Sam really ought to consult his canonists and see if they can exclude her from Communion because she’s not mentally old enough.

On the local FOX news last night they were referring to them as undocumented residents and spent all of two minutes talking about the invasion of our state of Texas. Maybe all of these “undocumented residents” should all be dropped off at the homes of all our local news broadcasters.

I agree with Nancy. Let's call them 'invaders'.

'Foreign invaders' has a nice ring to it. Or maybe Nancy would prefer 'imported Democrat voters' since that's what this is all about anyway!

Boneless and friends need to articulate the distinct nature of being a US Citizen vs. a citizen of the world. If he and they do not know and do not care about this distinction, then they ought to be summarily fired.

“Alien - Any person not a citizen or national of the United States.”

We need to tell liberals where to go when they pretend there is something wrong with using words correctly. We cannot continue backing down on vocabulary, or the thugs will continue winning.

Nancy is such a ditz. What else are you supposed to call an illegal alien? Also, “What difference does it make?” The term illegal alien works every time and everybody knows what you’re talking about when you say it.
