It's Newspeak.

This city is an absolute disgrace to the United States of America. Yet another reason how liberalism is destroying this great country.

"Somerville’s mayor, Joe Curtatone, welcomedanyone who wants to be part of his city, adding that the community has always been a city of hope for immigrants around the world. “… Whatever your status is, wherever you’re from, we are your mayor, we’re your aldermen, this is your city and we’re here to service you,” Mayor Curtatone said".

Isn't aiding, abetting and harboring illegal immigrants against our federal laws?


Here's another example of the Mass ******* mentality:

“Illegal immigration didn’t kill this person. A drunk driver killed this person, and we have laws about that. And I expect the book to be thrown at this person.’’
-Gov. Deval Patrick

Illegal immigration is not to blame for fatality, Patrick says - The Boston Globe



Drunk driver? Throw the book at him. Immigration violation? Not so much............

You would never want to hurt the feelings of a convicted murderer and tell them that they are illegal and that murder is illegal...why burden them with guilt...it's all good- we don't need the rule of law...and what is with this age of consent regarding sex and very young people...it would be horrible to hurt the pedophile's feelings.....Or for instance...a crack head that is homeless...it would never do not to let them sleep on your couch and eat your food...and access your bank account- heaven forbid we deem them as illegal.....

Guys, come on. I'm a liberal voter and I am anti-illegal immigration. You can be both.

Neither party really fits me, though since I am a strong social libertarian, favor sensible regulation, and think a social safety net is necessary, I tend to vote Democrat. I don't always though, and I never vote a straight-party ticket.

I just returned from the polls where I voted straight R ticket. Why did I do that? It's because I felt those candidates were the better options. I do cross party lines when I feel that it's necessary.

Reagan gave them amnesty. Bush spoke to them in Spanish. Bloomberg hands them social services.

Conservatives adore illegals. They're cheap, docile laborers who are content with miserable wages, substandard housing conditions, lousy public schools, failing infrastructure and supporting overseas dicatorships. What could be better than getting low cost labor and passing the real costs of your enormous profits on to some contemptible middle class sap?

Their sexist culture and hyperreligious ideology with an emphasis on early breeding, minimal education and a deep seated contempt for the female sex fits right in with backwards Republican ideals.
