Lay that one on me slowly. This person comes out with a big attack on others use of English words. He has it utterly wrong.

Now if I point out that he has quite awfully misused the words I am attacking him?

If i come on...

"Oh poor sweet dear...that is not what is meant by immigrant" Then I am condescending?

If I say...

"Comeon Turkey...that is not what the word means" I am attacking?

So you hold that random use of the language is OK as long as you oppose illegal immigration?

The mind does boggle...

You insinuating someone is not intelligent enough to understand English with the context and wording you used was condescending and insulting. I'm sure if I saw it that way, the poster did as well.

Immigrant isn't the issue.

Illegal immigrant is the issue.

They could be from Mexico and I wouldn't care if they came here legally.

If they came legally they can be called immigrants.

If they come Illegally they are not called Immigrants, they are called ALIENS.

Get it correct
.
Now, tell me he wasn't being condescending. His post was insinuating that we are dummies and don't know what an immigrant is. I hope you also give him a lecture on how to be nice and cordial to other posters.

Actually, I read that to be his clarifying the difference between the term immigrant and alien. The concept of legal vs. illegal. I don't see where there was any condescention or implication of someone's mental aptitude.

Off course you won't see it, but tell me what the "get it correct" at the end of his post meant to you?

to me, it meant that he would like you not to confuse the two in the future.

Meaning what he wrote wasn't only his opinion but a fact(which he got wrong) right?

It was a deliberately provocative and quite incorrect post. It got corrected in a style that pointed out both the error and made fun of the obvious provocative intent.

Again it appears that incorrect is OK as long as you are on the "right" side.
