Abandon All Hope

Posted by Ryne McClaren on April 27, 2010

This word “illegal.”  It does not mean what liberals think it means.

According to one enterprising headline writer at MSNBC, Arizona law “Makes it a crime to be an illegal immigrant.” Contessa Brewer and her guest also take a journey down that road in very serious voices.

And yes, according to most definitions of the word oxymoron, it should be intentional.  I’m not sure if MSNBC got the memo, but at any rate you would certainly think that they would be able to read.

One Response to “Abandon All Hope”

  1. Dan Draney said

    “Law Makes it a Crime to be Illegal Immigrant.” – A tautology, after all.

    It makes perfect sense when you consider the concerted effort by the open borders crowd to demonize the use of the term “illegal” in referring to those in the country illegally. Much better to call them “undocumented” (like a feature of a program that’s not in the manual). Thus, those who oppose wholesale amnesty for illegal aliens are said to be “anti-immigrant,” even though many are immigrants themselves. MSNBC just screwed up by not using the official Framing Words.
