Do we simply call a flat tire a tire, Or do we clarify it by adding flat to the description.
Most who wish to avoid something negative will omit adjectives or wording that fully describes the topic.
This is not by accident or innocent oversight, this is by design.
Another tactic is to use less direct or less damaging wordage.
Example. Undocumented instead of illegal. Undocumented would serve to dilute the crime to something of a minor oversight.
Undocumented contractor. Or unlicensed and uninsured contractor...
Migrant. Now this could mean a worker that migrates from Texas to Alabama for work. In fact thats exactly how many would view it.
Illegal alien or illegal immigrant. Direct and to the point. These are people here illegally without permission. In short criminals. Its no wonder the pro-illegal crowd would wish to avoid such terms. They know that the American public has very little sympathy for criminals.
Instead the pro crowd will use terms like honest hard working migrants or immigrants. This is meant to confuse legal immigrants with illegal immigrants. As if to say they are 1 and the same.
Why not call drunk drivers, incapasitated drivers. This way the drunk drivers don't have to feel stereotyped.
Rapist could be called undesired sexual partners.
Burglers uninvited guests.
Murderers- undocumented executioners.
pedophiles- impatient sexual partners.
Wife beaters- frustrated spouses.
