Illegal Aliens... A Difficult Concept for Liberal Progressives to Comprehend

by: Les Carpenter
Rational Nation USA
Birthplace of Independent Conservatism

Lets get real for just a moment. Of course to do so pre supposes the liberals ability to think rationally. In the video following a very rational and reasoned Megyn Kelly offers what any thinking mind would quickly grasp and embrace.

Of course the liberal progressive Society of Professional Journalists supports using the the politically correct and apparently unoffensive {at least to the illegal alien anyway} phrase of undocumented immigrant. Perhaps it is only the opinion of this independent conservative but Megyn Kely is spot on. Anyone who thinks otherwise has been infected by the virulent liberal progressive brain disorder.

Write up from the left leaning TPM.

Plenty of conservatives are pretty upset over a campaign by the Society of Professional Journalists to convince reporters to stop using the terms "illegal aliens" and "illegal immigrants" in favor of "undocumented immigrant." But none are as livid as perpetually outraged Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who on Wednesday afternoon asked if journalists were going to start calling rapists "non-consensual sex partners" next.

"You could say that a burglar is an unauthorized visitor. You know, you could say that a rapist is a non-consensual sex partner which, obviously, would be considered offensive to the victims of those crimes," Kelly said. "So how far could you take this?"

"What if there was a push by the criminal defense... bar to re-brand the use of the word rapist to nonconsensual sex partner?" Kelly asks her guest. Jehmu Greene, the former president of the Women's Media Center, said that was like comparing "apples and oranges."

Kelly also expressed frustration over the politically correct language dominating American culture.

"You know, we did a segment earlier in the year on how little people find the term midget offensive, and so you can't say that anymore," Kelly lamented. "There's so many words that are suddenly becoming hurtful, and part of the group thinks it's hurtful, and the other group doesn't, and you're left as a journalist saying, I don't know what to do."

I for one am  beginning to think a "Kelly for President" movement might have merit. She certainly has the looks. And she has the brains to go along with them.

  1. You have to be good looking to run for president? I wasn't aware. However, in response to your post... I find it extremely offensive that Kelly compares rape and illegal immigration (and for you to endorse her comparison). The reason we shouldn't vilify illegal immigrants is because WE ASKED THEM to come here. Yes, there are laws saying crossing the border without authorization is against the law, but that could be stopped (with some effort) by enforcing the laws we have that say only US citizens (or non-citizens with the proper paperwork) can be employed in the United States. E-verify? If people here illegally couldn't find work wouldn't they leave?

    Yet the Right decides to vilify "illegal immigrants" while hardly ever saying anything about illegal employers (employers who knowingly give jobs to people who lack the proper paperwork). Yes, some are duped by counterfeit paperwork, but couldn't e-verify help solve that problem? I say we should crack down on the illegal employers but go easy on the illegal immigrants who are already here... because we said to them "It's illegal to cross the border without the proper paperwork, but if you make it there is a job waiting for you". That's an open invitation in my book.

    I am a Liberal Progressive and the concept of illegal immigration isn't hard for me to comprehend at all. They are coming because we are offering them jobs. Is that a concept that is difficult for you to comprehend?
