Why Does the Word "Illegal" Baffle Liberals So Completely?

There are 14 comments on the canadafreepress.com story from Jun 1, 2011, titled Why Does the Word "Illegal" Baffle Liberals So Completely?. In it, canadafreepress.com reports that:

When it comes to discussions about immigration, liberals are universally loathe to use the word "illegal" to identify foreigners whom have violated our borders and immigration laws and are residing here unlawfully.

Rather, liberals, including the mainstream media, try to apply “lipstick to a pig,” as it were, by calling illegal aliens “undocumented” this or that.

The left seems to be operating under the misguided notion that “illegal alien” is a derisive term invented by white Republicans to humiliate brown people who fail to cross all the Ts while migrating north.

Of course the pro open borders crowd purposely want to make termnology misleading and sympathetic. Undocumented immigrant = Illegal alien. Immigration reform = amnesty. Alot of Americans are not being fooled by the political double speak. More Americans are waking up to the fact that they are footing the bill to be displaced. I can only pray that some people in power will act in the best interests of Americans (change I could believe in )and stop the political pandering to corporations and foreign nationals.

If illegal aliens are illegally documented does that make them undocumented or documented illegal aliens?

Not that your rocket science question deserves an answer; it needs to be shown as the stupid question that it is. They are either a) have NO paperwork to prove they are here legally or b) using your child's social security number to propetuate their fraud

I'am a liberal and illegal is illegal. This guy listens to too many republican talk shows.

Who owns the main stream media? I live in Las Vegas and i can't get a left talk show on the radio. But there are too many right wing shows on everyday. Why is that if the media is liberal?

Remember it was republican President Ronald Reagan who gave illegals amnesty and the reason we have a illegal mess today.

When the word illegal is put in front of anything it cancels the rest out.

Democrats won't call illegal aliens illegal, because that would infer they are cheating when they send their criminal supporters to sign them up to vote.

Wow. The Radio? Really? What about TV newscasts, just about every order of evening entertainment, mainstream Hollywood films, PBS, NOVA, etc? To bring up a single, rather ignored media source while looking past all the other ones that don't fit your assertion is rather disingenuous.

Ronald Reagan? Ahem!TedKennedyAhem! Both parties are to blame for where we are, WRT immigration. the key point is that we can afford to give neither party any more free passes. Amnesties don't work.
