There is a new bot running on Twitter that was created to inform people they mustn’t use the term “illegal immigrant” and they must say “unauthorized immigrant” or “undocumented immigrant”.
Therefore, the Sentinel will use the terms “illegal alien” or “people here illegally”.
The bot creators believe the terms are no longer socially acceptable so they are going to remind you if you use it on Twitter.
It can be seen at @DroptheIBot.
The bot was created by a Patrick Hogan and Jorge Rivas according to a story they wrote for Fusion. They quoted an illegal alien and immigration activist who came here as a child. The apparent DREAMer, Jose Antonio Vargas, said in an interview that “Actions are illegal. People are not.”
Mr. Vargas said it is “dehumanizing to people who came to the U.S. without proper paperwork.”
I don’t know if Mr. Vargas is sincere or not but when I hear the argument he made, knowing how the left operates, I sense they are trying to change how we view illegal aliens so they can keep those borders open. I’m sorry Mr. Vargas feels dehumanized but words have to reflect the truth. People here illegally aren’t normal immigrants either. In fact, it’s starting to look more like an invasion and we don’t even know who the people are who are coming here.
Politically Correct bots might be a bridge too far for most of us because this one is receiving mostly negative feedback.
Mr. Vargas and others can keep their Newspeak to themselves.
Aside from one’s beliefs about unfettered illegal immigration, political correctness is a form of Fascism and there’s no end once people give up their free speech and go down that road.
