So, it's particularly aggravating when pandering political hacks like Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa lie about conservatives by omitting a word.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in his Democratic National Convention speech that immigrants would find life so intolerable under a Mitt Romney administration that they would, “self-deport.”The article continues here.
“Instead of supporting their dream, Governor Romney wants to make their lives so miserable, so oppressive, so intolerable that they would leave behind the life they’ve built and ‘self-deport’,” he said. “But we believe we’re a better country than that. And thanks to President Obama, as we keep on fighting for the DREAM Act, they can remain in the country they love.”
He did what the Left always does. He left out, "illegal." I'd be okay with illegal immigrant, even though "immigrant" suggests lawful entry, so "illegal alien" is more appropriate.
The best analogy I've ever heard to illustrate the point is that calling conservatives "anti-immigrant" is like calling Mothers Against Drunk Driving "anti-driving." That missing word is critical. Leave it out and you're painting a strong cause supported by most people as some sort of fringe group to be ridiculed and shunned.
It's a clever tactic, but one that exposes the Left as liars who can't win their argument without deception.
