Another push is on to change the way we talk about illegal aliens. According to Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene, speaking of illegals truthfully promotes violence against illegal aliens. Bet you didn’t know that. The Society of Professional Journalists wants to banish “illegal immigrant,” “illegal alien,” undocumented alien,” as offense, and want journalists to change their “styles guides,” (the words journalists can use!!!) to use “undocumented workers” or “undocumented immigrants.” Kelly also interviews Brad Blakeman, a former G.W. Bush senior staffer. See the video below.
Megyn challenges Greene for evidence that violence is increasing because of the words we use. Green’s only example was the “Jews in World War II.”
Megyn Kelly asks how far can you take this? A burglar is an unauthorized intruder, a rapist is a non-consensual sex partner?”
There is plenty of discussion in the video clarifying that illegals are…illegals. None of it gets through to Jehmu Greene.
