Associated Press drops “illegal immigrant” from stylebook

Leftist orthodoxy to be enforced

"The Associated Press, the largest news-gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term 'illegal immigrant.' ...

AP Stylebook editors sat down with a number of groups who were concerned about their entry on the the term in recent years and 'sought the views of a cross section of AP staffers' on the issue, according to Colford.

Kathleen Carroll also noted in the Tuesday blog post that the AP prefers to label 'behavior' rather than 'people,' writing that instead of using the term 'schizophrenic,' the AP now prefers saying that one is 'diagnosed with schizophrenia.'"

Call it what you will, those people are immigrants who are here illegally and the key word is illegal. That is the word the AP is trying to avoid. The AP says they want to label behavior not people, but the truth is they don't want to talk about the immigration laws that are being violated.

How about "People" or "Human Beings"?

3:47 I wonder how you'd feel if those people or human beings broke into your home, ate your food, went to a doctor on your dime and stayed forever. That's exactly what is happening on a grand scale. Get a clue already.

And just when did the AP become the creator of our language? This is how the infamous, freedom killing virus known as political correctness has become so wide spread. It is fueled by weak-minded people.

'Illegal alien' is double-plus ungood.
