Posted on 04/09/2013 6:46:06 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
On his radio show last week, Geraldo Rivera applauded the Associated Press decision to drop the term illegal immigrant from its official style guidelines and then decreed that no one should use the phrase any longer, seeing as how he believes it is akin to saying negro to describe a black person.
You can never use the expression illegal alien again, the radio host said to his colleague Bill OReilly. It is a pejorative. Its like saying negro or homosexual. It is a loaded term that doesnt accurately describe.
Why dont you just give me a list of things I can say? OReilly pushed back.
Illegal aliens and Bible thumping are two things you cannot say, Rivera quipped in reference to his Foxs colleagues controversial remarks about the religious opponents of gay marriage.
Im not giving into this stuff. Youre crazy, OReilly replied. If somebodys in here and breaks our immigration laws, theyre an illegal alien.
Theyre not an illegal alien, the host concluded. Theyre an undocumented immigrant, give them some slack.

Jerry Rivers can kiss my gleamin Caucasian ass. The nazis did this same language manipulation to get the German people to be more accepting as well.
Geraldo is a liberal idiot blown up to be much more than he really is - even by the fox crew. I can’t stand to watch him. Makes my skin crawl.
If stupidity could bloom, GeraldoRat would be beautifullll rose.
Who is he ...the PC police? Good grief! Sorry, if the truth reminds them that they broke the law, well not really sorry. These people need to stop acting like a bunch of cry babies.
For once I agree completely.
Illegal aliens should never be used again. A shotgun with a 10” barrel is illegal. The person holding it (ie the one actually breaking the law) is a criminal.
I believe ‘criminal alien’ is the correct term and should be used!
Yeah, didn't thin so.
“And this man wants to be Senator...”
He could easily win. He’s got name recognition, and he’s a moron liberal, (yes, I know that’s redundant)>
Umm, isn’t negro Spanish for black? How about we just change it to the French version of noir?
Hey Jerry, nobody cares what you say or think. You think “illegal alien” is tough. How ‘bout another 100% accurate description, and my fav, “criminal alien?”
So, breaking the law doesn’t make what you’re doing illegal?
PC = Denial of and punishment of truth
Jerry’s a lawyer. He should no it’s not illegal to be negro.
All this time I thought the offensive word was “wetback”...
It's the same lie every time from the leftists. The number of "undocumented" illegals isn't even the round-off error of the count of the number of fraudulently-documented illegals.
No, I will not!
I already give them tax dollars and medical benefits. Not to mention, drivers licenses and a reduced in-state tuition.
I prefer the Latin version ( HINT: It is the name of a country in Africa that exports uranium ).
