“To call them illegal aliens seemed and does seem insulting to me.”
“I think people then paint those individuals as something less than worthy human beings and it changes the conversation.”

Both statements are by Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor lecturing at Yale University on 2/3/2014.

The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.  --- Gloria Steinem

This rant is about the LIE not the LAW.  We can discuss border security and amnesty sometime AFTER the elections.  Too many other things are more important right now.


There was a time when this sort of thing would make me giggle until my ribs ached.  Now it’s not even entertaining.  The PC police continue their quest to outlaw all things unpleasant at the expense of truth and reason.  Apparently, even in the Supreme Court.  In the end, I suppose the Supreme Court Justices are still just lawyers, complete with a lawyer’s tendency to think a clever argument is a good one.

First of all, do you remember that pesky First Amendment thing?  The one Sotomayor was talking about when she swore to “…  faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States under the Constitution and laws of the United States.” when she took her oath of office?  Yeah, that one. It says I can speak as I please regardless of who is insulted by my speech.  That is still the law.   But Politically Correct has nothing to do with the law and it never did.  PC is supposedly about MANNERS.

The thing is, ignorance, especially willful ignorance or denial of unpleasant truth can, will, and has gotten many many people, (including me) hurt and (almost) killed.  It has killed others. It will do so again, We are not however, required to facilitate the process.

I don’t talk about it much, but I happen to be an alcoholic. I have two years and change sober now.  I will spare you details, but like most drunks, I almost died of alcohol poisoning and/or stupid more times than I can conveniently count.  It’s also a miracle I didn’t kill anyone else.  I did permanently damage my health.

Now, as you may surmise being an alcoholic is not flattering or fun. It is however my diagnosis.  It is the truth. The truth does not care about my feelings, and without knowing the truth, I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. I'm stuck wherever I am.

As long as I could pretend that I didn’t have a problem, and other people could pretend that they believed me when I told them so, I could keep going.  And I did.  Now nobody else is responsible for my problems. That’s why they are MY problems. However, the people that were willing to pretend with me made it almost comfortable to continue having my problems even as I was dying from them.  THIS IS THE NATURE OF THE POLITICALLY CORRECT LIE.

What the hell does all this have to do with Illegal Immigration and the Judge? My lack of hurt feelings damn near killed me a lot. That's what.

She’s telling us She would rather pretend that no laws are being broken than allow an unpleasant but accurate statement to be used.  The thing is there is no actual way around the fact that these people are Foreign Nationals as in not citizens as in aliens, who came to this country illegally.  They are NOT citizens here, and the fact is that their presence here outside the law is the direct cause of much Social Injustice.  Now I understand that many think they have a simple solution to the problem. But these are the same people who practice their PC and pretend it’s not a problem.

Sotomayor, and others who argue that “Illegal Aliens” is too insulting a term to use perpetuate the problem.  Why do the work to become legal when there is all this pretending going on? But hell, I’ve played this game before!  As long as it’s a PC issue it’s about manners, not the law.

 Or as Andrew Brietbart said:  “So?”
