Society of Professional Journalists Says No More Using Term 'Illegal Alien'Topics: Follies of the Mainstream Media, Political News and commentaries
In the ideological world of liberal-progressives (liberals, progressives, socialists, statists, communists, etc.), such as journalists of the SPJ, in which moral relativism and multiculturalism reign supreme, a world in which there is no objective truth, no objectivity ... everything is relative, laws mean diddly squat, political correctness and emotion trump logic, reason, facts, and reality ... and passing a resolution to urge newsrooms to drop the terms "illegal alien" and "llegal immigrant," makes perfect sense.
The Society of Professional Journalists voted this week to impose even more political correctness when they passed a resolution to urge newsrooms to drop the terms "illegal alien" and "illegal immigrant," saying that only courts can decide when a person has committed an illegal act.In other words, it's insulting to be called illegal when you broke the law by entering the country illegally. Heaven forbid that we should insult criminals. And they are indeed criminals.
Last year SPJ Diversity Committee member Leo Laurence suggested that instead they should be referred to as "undocumented workers" or "undocumented immigrants."
The committee introduced the resolution at the Excellence in Journalism convention in New Orleans, and was boosted by an emotional plea by Rebecca Aguilar, a member of SPJ and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Aguilar said that the terms insult Latinos who are or who had once been in the U.S. illegally, citing the case of her mother who became a citizen in 1980.
