Newspeak Update! Illegal Aliens Called ‘Undocumented CITIZENS’ by Newspaper

George Orwell would be proud by the linguistic hoops of fire our political tormenters try to make us jump through in order to control our thoughts and bend us to their agenda. Their newest is to ridiculously refer to illegal aliens, who they admit are here illegally, as “undocumented citizens.”

Here’s a screenshot of the idiotic headline:

des moines undocumented

How the hell do you call someone who is here illegally any kind of citizen at all? It’s absurd and laughable.

I reached out to the “journalist” with a polite inquiry about the headline:

Feel free to berate the guy yourself, if you like.

If someone who is here illegally is simply an “undocumented citizen,” doesn’t that mean basically everyone in the world is a citizen of America? Pathetic.

  • The power of words should never be underestimated. This campaign to change what we call illegal aliens into something more benign has been going on for years. I wrote about it way back in 2011 (http://www.jpattitude.com/110105.php) when the campaign first started to call them “undocumented immigrants.” The goal is to make them more acceptable so we will stop complaining about the manifest unfairness of the way these criminals – for that’s what they are – treat our country and makes claims upon our resources.

    Yes, I completely agree. Language is a powerful tool and changing it changes the way we think. Orwell was spot on. This is why I take pains to always use the terms “illegal” or “illegal alien” when referring to those from other countries who come here and/or stay here ILLEGALLY.
