Political correctness has taken a new direction of stupidity. We understand how people are labeled and the way to not offend many of them is to use political correct terms. Many of these terms are a joke but recently they are becoming ridiculous.
Today I heard that the Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley had called the illegal aliens that cross our borders “new Americans.” I had to stop what I was doing and come home to research this. And sadly it is true. O’Malley referred to the illegal aliens as “new Americans” several times during his debate with Republican challenger Bob Ehrlich on Monday evening. O’Malley said the government needed to do a better job with immigration and suggested that the illegal aliens that are currently here should be able to sign up for citizenship, obey the law, and pay taxes. This is things that most of Congress does not even do.
This is another attempt to try and get voters from the minority side for a hurting Democratic party. Over the years political correctness has revolved into an ongoing change of labels to different classes of people of different races and religions. It is now becoming funny. And with Obama in the White House, the term racist from all sides has become a household word that really does not mean anything anymore.
Referring to the Hispanic immigrants we have changed labels many times over the years. When I was young it was “Wetback.” That term upset some then and many now but in order to cross our border from Mexico, one does have to cross the Rio Grande River. Therefore the term was born. But as time has lingered on then the labels have changed. The same people that use to be a Wetback, then was illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, undocumented workers, and some call them immigrant travelers. Whatever one wants to call them they are basically criminals.
American is built of immigrants. Most of us have some blood in our family from other nations and nationalities. That is just the plain fact of life. But our relatives, for the most part, came here legally and played by the rules to become citizens and live in the greatest country in the world. But many of our leaders would sell out this great process to become a citizen legally in hope that they could get a vote to uphold their corrupt ways while representing the citizens of the United States. This is shameful, illegal, and disgraceful for our government to sell their souls for a simple vote. The way they all could get votes is to do their job and represent the American people, they very people that put them in office, and the very people that will remove them from office.
