Who Says?

49 years after the Free Speech Movement rocked the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, student government there has banned the term “illegal immigrant”.

They deem the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.

"Unfair", that would be funny if it weren't so pathetic and the scientific community is united in that fact.

In a unanimous vote, these titans of tolerance tell us --  the word “illegal” is “racially charged” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.”

I'm no lawyer, but I'll play one on this blog and say, it seems to me that it's illegal for you to ban constitutionally guaranteed free speech.

A student who spoke against the resolution at an earlier meeting was mistreated by student senators, who laughed or had their backs turned when the lone protestor addressed the dais

These are the same fiberals who last year passed a resolution attempting to ban the Salvation Army bell ringers from campus.

In a final twist of irony, the University's motto is -- Let there be light.
