It has come to my attention that there exists in Cobb County someone named Kevin Foley.  Who is a self described “progressive.”

And that he writes a blog here on the MDJ site. And that he has opinions on the crime of illegal immigration. And that he supports another legalization, path to citizenship program to deal with the millions of illegal alien insurgents already here in the American Republic. He says that is “reasonable.”

And that on his blog he takes issue with use of the term “illegal alien” to describe illegal aliens.  Including by yours truly. And that he wants this writer to take the “high road” – which he is happy to define.

And that he has written a blog on his objections in which he parrots the talking point passed on by the SPLC, La Raza, and such luminaries as Rich Pellegrino and Angry Jerry-with-ties-to-SPLC-designated-hate-groups–Gonzalez of the anti-enforcement, leftist corporation GALEO that any use of the quite accurate and legally correct term “illegal alien” is “dehumanizing.”

And the shameless and sickening assertion that saying or writing “illegal alien" is akin to use of the “N word” to describe black Americans. See HERE for Gonzalez’s 2004 pointers.

I am not making this up. He wants you to call the illegal aliens “undocumented workers.” Ignoring the fact that illegal aliens have a multitude of documents. Which are expired, stolen from Americans, fraudulently created or supplied by foreign governments to further the illegal presence of the illegal aliens in the USA.

Here is a sample of Foley’s feeling process from his March 19, 2012, blog that has 83 views as I type. Foley’s blog also has three comments from … Foley. In which he uses the term “hate talk” (of course he does).

“Here's where words come in. Mr. King repeatedly uses the phrase "illegal alien." He is no doubt aware that the Latino and Hispanic communities consider these words an slur because it serves to dehumanize in the same way the "n" word dehumanizes African-Americans or the words "mick" or "bohunk" once dehumanized my own ancestors when they arrived in America. By calling undocumented workers from Mexico, Central America or the Caribbean "illegal aliens" Mr. King makes them something less than human beings, something unworthy and contemptible.”

This worn-out, mindless, yawner of an attempt to redefine and normalize illegal aliens is not new or original, but it does tell us a lot. For one thing, like all liberals, this guy finds it impossible to keep race, skin color and ethnicity out of the topic of the illegal immigration invasion, or even his argument that we should not call illegal aliens … illegal aliens.

He must go bats when he reads the term “illegal employers.” Si?

Foley won’t get much of this long-time American’s limited time in response in the future, but his position is worth reading and I hope that it gets some attention from readers.

Just off the top of my head, readers who put themselves through digesting Foley’s complaint may want to point out that the term “illegal alien” is a legal and accurate term officially used by many agencies (the horror!) of the U.S. government including the IRS:

“Illegal Alien -Also known as an "Undocumented Alien," is an alien who has entered the United States illegally and is deportable if apprehended, or an alien who entered the United States legally but who has fallen "out of status" and is deportable.” HERE

and no less than the United States Supreme Court:

“…In considering this motion, the District Court made extensive findings of fact. The court found that neither § 21.031 nor the School District policy implementing it had "either the purpose or effect of keeping illegal aliens out of the State of Texas." 458 F.Supp. 569, 575 (1978).” HERE

The term “illegal alien” is also used throughout Georgia law aimed at protecting jobs, benefits and services from illegal aliens – not to mention defending the honor and value of real, legal immigrants - in existing Georgia law.

I could go on.

Mr. Foley: We know illegal aliens are humans – we don’t make immigration laws for hamsters or pumpkins.

Please take the road to reality  unless you are securely ensconced inside an ACLU/La Raza seminar? And while we know it is constantly taught as a “how to” in leftist teach-ins; please stop trying to publicly redefine the English language to suit your “progressive” position on illegal aliens?

We will bury you! In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal "gringo" invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny.

We are free and sovereign to determine those tasks which are justly called for by our house, our land, the sweat of our brows, and by our hearts. Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent

Brotherhood unites us, and love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come and who struggles against the foreigner gabachowho exploits our riches and destroys our culture. With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan

Now brave Kevin has moved on to "white supremacism"?So the campaign is on to get D.A. King out of the newspaper here? You are going to need someone considerably sharper than Kevin Foley.

This anonymous poster IS Kevin Foley, who is not only a dim bulb but a coward. He has written yet another blog aimed at King and will no doubt get his when Mr. King sees it.

Count Foley in as just another race-baiting coward who has no argument other than "everyone is a racist"...who doesn't agree with my silly unthought out drivel. I happen to know that Michelle Malkin, Pat Buchanan and many other people who can actually think write on this vdaree site. Ohhhh....boegey man. Nice try Foley you loser. FAIR says immigration should be advantageous to the USA and reduced,not that it is "bad" and makes it a point to offer info to dispute the lies you spread.

You are too dumb to see how embarressed you should be and how you have shown us the real Kevin Foley.

And Marie, there is a line that is crossed when you step from a rejection of multiculturalism to white supremacism. I'm guessing you and King have made the leap already. King's a FAIR franchise, and I've seen the "all immigration is bad" advertisements they've aired, and D.A.'s begun to tout similar concepts. And don't forget that King cut his teeth on the virulently racist VDARE.

Or, evidently, to the leaders of the EU? Truth really hurts, doesn't it. Your cowardice and "hate" for the truth is hilarious.
April 21, 2012
Oh, please. Your cruelty and mental illness need treatment, Marie. I hope you have been surgically sterilized, as I wouldn't want any children directly exposed to you.

Anonymous: Nice try. D.A. writes about illegal immigration, but are you als0 reminded of various EU leaders who have realized that the concept of multiculturalism is not workable?

French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared that multiculturalism was dead in France. According to Sarkozy, those who come to France need to accept that they have to melt together into a single community, which is the national community, and if they do not want to accept that, they will not be welcome. British Prime Minister David Cameron reviewed and rejested the UK’s doctrines of state multiculturalism, stating: “We have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream.We even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values.” In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel, gave her two cents worth when she announced that multiculturalism in Europe had failed.

You are pathetic.

Ummm,, Mr. Foley, is it OK if we say "looney?" -"cereal?" Or "killer?" or "thief" or "steal" or "crime?" Or do you have a catalog of alternate 'progressive' substitute words for these too?

I am trying my best to come up with a substitute word for "mindless." To no avail. Get it?

And BTW. I am an African American who finds zero sympathy for the illegal aliens and the illegal employers who lower wages and take jobs from America's poorest. Or people who try to ride the civil rights movement with their illegal alien agenda. King is right. It is sickening.

I have been reminded of D.A. King watching Anders Breivik rant about multiculturism.

If a man steals from me, even if it is to support his family, it is illegal. The REAL crime is that my government steals over a thousand dollars per year from every household in America to support people who knowingly broke our laws. This is not a victimless crime, but the victims are not the illegal aliens.

Kevin Foley should be published every day so that we don't forget how loony the left is; particularly on immigration. Not to mention the fact that he can't stop blathering and posts on his own blog....HA!

Mr. Foley: What do you not understand about the word "illegal" meaning against the law, and the word "alien" meaning foreign? An ILLEGAL ALIEN IS a foreigner here against the law!

This amnesty-them all again Foley character seems to have gotten the spanking he so richly deserves here. I think he is the race-baiter and that he is also a coward looking for attention.

Attention Foley: I didn't serve my country to turn it over to people like you who lack the courage to even use the proper term to describe a crime if you think it may hurt a criminal's feelings. I am long married to a Hispanic immigrant (Mexico) who understands that leftists like you are the real insult and danger.

You should be honored if D.A. King lets you shine his boots. You would be funny if you weren't so sadly dangerous. Peeeeeuuuuu!

Mr. Foley obviously is unable to comprehend the difference between ethnicity and immigration status.

Your bigoted notion that "Latino" and "illegal alien" are one and the same is patenly false. There are illegal aliens in the United States with a vast range of racial and ethnic identities.

I believe that illeglal aliens have a malice of evil in their soul. American citizens own the nation (U.S.A.) and how did our U.S. Fed forget to pay for the illegal use of our nation by the U.S. Fed and illegal aliens? Mr. Kevin Foley, would you please determine if illegal aliens are s violation of the human rights of American citizens as described by the United Nation Declaration of Human Rights (particularly article 23)? I look foreward to an injunction by Americans against the illegal use of this nation by the U.S. Fed and illegal aliens and illegals are removed from the U.S. like during the great depression (when unemployment dropped from 25% to 17% just that quick).

Your problem, among others, Foley is that this is all just a game to you. You seek the challenge of a debate.Your definition of a good faith debate is nonsense.

Illegal alien is what illegal aliens are. No one set you and your giant ego as the arbiter of which words are allowed in our Politically Correct world.

You posted your blowhard opinion about someone who has done more to try to help American workers than you have done and most probably, will ever do.

The fact that you consider a true definition to be race baiting, in my opinion establishes you as an Alinsky member. The truth doesn't matter. Just make accusations and try to get the other fellow to defend himself.

Latinos who are Americans and not Latinos first will turn on you rather than conservatives. A citizen is a citizen, a visa or green card or resident alien is a resident. Anyone here illegally is an illegal alien.

I, sincerely , believe you to be challenged in reasonable logic.

You do not either love our country and want

to protect it or you are ignorant of the harm that illegal immigration has visited upon America.

I think your line of work leaves little worry about in the ILLEGAL ALIEN arena, thus you play Mr Goodheart without a care for the American worker.

offbalance , whoever I am.

Your thirst for knowing the names of poster also shows what you seek in life besides attention.

Mr. Foley, what does it matter if Latinos or Hispanics find the term "illegal alien" offensive? So what. Illegal alien is a term of law that refers to someone who has no legal right to be in this country. It includes those of any ancestry, including my own Arab ancestry. Now, the only reason I can think of that Latinos might be "insulted" at the use of the term is that so many illegal aliens are of Latino ancestry. And THAT, Mr. Foley, is an insult to AMERICANS of all ethnicities and races. The attempt to conflate "illegal aliens" with legal immigrants is also an insult to those of us with ancestors or relatives who immigrated legally.

If Mr. Foley could actually put together a coherent sentence he might attain the level of engagement he desires.

While Mr. Foley seems to imply all Hispanic and Latinos find "illegal alien/immigrant" a slur, he appears to be ignorant of many Latinos/Hispanics who do not see it that way. Mr. Foley can only speak for the few he may have met or the few he represents, to include the few "groups/organizations" that also wish to bait with an inept argument.

Mr. Foley goes on to claim that Hispanic/Latino voters have left the GOP in large enough numbers to effect Presidential outcomes...(SMH), if Mr. Foley was intelligent enough to look back at the Presidential voting trends of the Hispanic/Latino voters over the years he would notice a trend of between 30% to 40% each and every time.

The reliability seems to be able to account for at least 30% of the Hispanic/Latino vote for the GOP Presidential election at a minimum.

Mr. Foley admitting to be a Progressive merely explains his inane and uneducated verbal ability.
