If you look at the history of most politically correct terms, you will find that they were started by liberal Democrats who have an agenda. One of the politically correct terms that I find dangerous is ‘social justice.’ Technically the term refers to socialism, but Democratic socialists knew that the American public would react to any reference to socialism. By renaming socialism to social justice, it makes socialism sound good and acceptable to a gullible nation.
When political correctness becomes law, it’s a clear violation of the First Amendment right to free speech, but liberal Democrats could care less about trampling on the constitutional rights of Americans.
Such is the case with the Correcting Hurtful and Alienating Names in Government Expression Act introduced into the House by Rep. Juaquin Castro (D-TX). His bill would ban the use of ‘alien’ and ‘illegal alien’ from all federal signage and literature. Commenting about his bill, Castro stated:
“America is a nation of immigrants, yet our federal government continues to use terms that dehumanize and ostracize those in our society who happen to have been born elsewhere.”
“Regardless of status, immigrants to our nation are first and foremost human beings. Removing the term ‘alien’ from our federal laws shows respect to our shared heritage and to the hundreds of millions of descendants of immigrants who call America home.”
“Words matter, particularly in the context of an issue as contentious as immigration.”
“Discontinuing our use of the term ‘alien’ will help lessen the prejudice and vitriol that for too long have poisoned our nation’s discussions around immigration reform.”
This isn’t the first time Congress has passed a law to forbid the official use of terms. In the past, they banned use of ‘lunatic’ and “mentally retarded’ because they deemed them offensive. This is the same argument being used by Castro to ban alien and illegal alien.
The truth is they don’t want the American people to think of illegals as being illegals. They want to cover their crime with sugary terms to make you feel sorry for them instead of demanding justice and that federal immigration laws be enforced.
Two hundred and 40 years ago, the British crown banned the use of terms and language that were anti-British. There was no freedom of speech under British rule and we are quickly returning to the same type of tyranny that led to the American Revolution. We fought off the tyranny then and perhaps it’s time we consider fighting off the same tyranny now.
We can do that at polls but it requires Americans to wake up and see what’s happening. Unfortunately we have a generation of voters that have been brainwashed by the same socialists causing today’s tyranny. They go to the polls and automatically vote like mindless zombies following evil masterminds. Remove the evil masterminds and the mindless zombie voters just might be released from their nightmarish brainwashing.
Contact your US Representative today and urge him or her to vote no on Castro’s anti-First Amendment bill. Stand up and fight for your constitutional rights.
