“From Illegal Aliens to Aliens”

This week’s Smackdown goes to Fox News for its consistent, inappropriate usage of the term “illegal alien,” as evidenced in this segment showcasing a news anchor comparing “illegal aliens” to actual aliens.

  8. FoxNews is run by fascists. I don’t throw that term around casually either. Illegal immigration is a huge problem but dehumanizing immigrants is the chump’s way out of having an intelligent discussion about it.

    • Fascist definition: “The term Fascism was first used of the totalitarian right-wing nationalist regime of Mussolini in Italy (1922–43), and the regimes of the Nazis in Germany and Franco in Spain were also fascist. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one national or ethnic group, a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.”

      Demagogic definition: “A political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.”

      Well, whaddaya know? You hit the fascist nail on its demagogic head.
