David Hogg Derps His Way Into the Immigration Debate with this Tweet
Poor David Hogg. Celebrities stopped calling. The media doesn't invite him on shows anymore. His peers have decided to maybe read books. Yet after failing on guns, Hogg seems to be throwing every leftist term at the wall to see what gets people to pay attention to him (see David Hogg Insults American Military with Imperialism Tweet. The Military Responds… and David Hogg Gets Mocked Over his Anti-Patriarchy Tweet). Now he's trying his hand at immigration with this brain turd.
Illegal alien is a xenophobic slur, stop saying it.— David Hogg (@David Hogg)1556893104.0
I guess we're doing this. It's like Hogg has a bunch of generic liberal terms written on a paper, folded into is "Hillary is my Homeboy" hat, from which he draws one term at random when he feels like the people of the world haven't licked his tochus enough.
The term "alien" means any person not a citizen or national of the United States.
The word alien can then be found over 2,000 times. With "illegal aliens" specifically over 30 times. "Alien" here doesn't refer to any bipeds with unsightly antennae, a hankering for Reeses Pieces, or a penchant for placing its offspring into one's stomach (or brain) via face insemination. "Alien" here just refers to "someone not from this land." I know it can be confusing.
Trying to change definitions is the left's old trick to manipulate and try to control language. Illegal alien became illegal immigrant. Which became undocumented immigrant. Which is now American-Adjacent in something. Leftists can't win the argument. So they try to change what words mean and claim you're a racist for not playing along.
