The New York City Council voted overwhelmingly Thursday to replace all mentions of “alien” in city documents, regulations and local laws with “noncitizen,” a move that critics derided as political correctness run amok.
“It’s like the speech police is out again,” said Councilman Robert Holden (D-Queens), who was one of four votes against the measure. “Alien is a term used for someone who is from another area, another land. That’s a term used in Congress and in the government.”
He added: “We’re overstepping our bounds here prohibiting certain terms.”
Council Speaker Corey Johnson celebrated the 46-4 vote with an afternoon tweet that claimed the Big Apple “just became the first major U.S. city to prohibit the use of the dehumanizing and offensive term ‘alien’ in local laws, rules, and documents. From now on, the term will be ‘noncitizen.’”
The measure was introduced by Councilman Francisco Moya (D-Queens) in January, who argued the change would help promote better treatment of immigrants in the Big Apple.
Funny, non-citizen sort of sounds worse.
It sounds close to non-person. Bigots will weaponize this too.
As previously said 1984 is a cautionary tale not an How To Book.
Thousands of NY City residents out of work and hurting and this is the City Council’s priority.
How will you vote in November? If they let you.
In related news, shoplifters are now to be referred to as "undocumented purchasers, drug dealers will be called "undocumented pharmacists" parking tickets will be called "lemon drops" and Riker's Island has been renamed "Hawaii."
The Western man needs a never ending funnel of non-skilled cattle like organism from 3rd world countries to man his machine world.
Italians and Greeks of Queens amongst others will never devliber food via pedaling their own bicycles, cut their own gyro meat, mow their own lawns, mop their floors etc etc etc
So with that being said you must pander to your slave labor so they dont feel abused and demeaned.
Bless the west
Meanwhile back to some more serious damage done to my city by our elected retards and the idiot voters who keep putting them in office.
From the NEW York Post
'A 55-year-old felon has used loose bail laws to terrorize Big Apple residents with a three borough crime-spree in which he was arrested 19 times and repeatedly released !'
Yet another example of how the elected officials have rigged a system and are no longer accountable to us. The Party is supreme - the state merely an appendage to achieve the Party's goals.
Notice how they no longer teach civics in school? Notice how the want to import people to become citizens with no interest in adapting them to American cultural mores where citizen involvement and holding elected officials responsible are from societies where these are unknown and not taught?
Notice how the sycophants are rewarded and the citizens exercising their right to express an opinion that is unwelcome by the ruling class punished? And they do this with rewarding or withholding tax payer funds that are entrusted to them for the public benefit?
What's wrong with alien? What's demeaning about the word alien? "Paraguayan cuisine is alien to me. I can't wait to try it." "My in-laws alienated me for a whole, until they got to know me better." "I loved that movie alien." "No I'm not a Icelandic citizen, I remained an alien resident whole I lived there." What are these wasteful, inept, ignorant and prejudiced political hacks wasting their time on!
Dear Leader says, this is an outrage.
What next! After many sightings of by our glorious Air Force of "Noncitizens" flying UFO's at high speed, are we to issue them with NYS driving licenses?
On a more important issue, Dear Leader has an announcement to make. Now that the supermarket shelves have been stocked up again thanks to Dear Leaders wondrous policies, he would like to set up Americas very first Kool Aid club right here in Queens NYC. Yes you heard it here first on QueensCrap. This will of course be for real Americans only. No namby pamby liberals demanding organic gluten free Kool Aid in eco friendly packaging. No "Non-citizens" demanding translations into 50 different languages. No nasty "Fake News" reporters asking questions to confuse Dear Leader. No Sireee, genuine American Kool Aid for real Americans to enjoy.
God bless Dear Leader, and God bless Dear Leader for making Kool Aid great again,(MKAGA)
Progressives at their finest. The democratic party is a scourge on our country.
A bank robbery would now be called an "undocumented fund withdrawal"
Ok, m...I mean Karen.
@Anonymous Dear Leader's press secretary said...
"Kool Aid for real Americans to enjoy." Yes..........
There is a Big Pitcher with cups for everyone. It's my choice not to drink it. Hillary called the lockdown protesters terrorists and now her left wing media calls the rioters “peaceful protesters” ! The double standard is reaching unsustainable levels of Fake News controled by the Left. Soccer Moms will see them as Lawless Thugs and take the #REDPILL ! The average American wants saftey for their Family not riots in the streets.

How can these assholes call illegals and aliens immigrants if these never immigrated?
Jumping a fence, floating across a river, overstay a visa and breaking dozens of laws means earning status as an immigrant. One who got in line, busted his or her balls to do it legally?
That's bullshit, just like the API Press rules of PC Crap'ola !!!
United States #1 Bootdello !!!
How about calling them "locust people" because that's exactly how they behave.
Consume, bankrupt & destroy the home country, refuse to use birth control, make baby's then move on.
I don't discriminate, I hate everyone equally
The Democrats are doing the same thing today that they did in 1861, ignore Federal laws and rewrite laws to their whim. Then it was states. Now it is cities.
We need to have an election and have a second Republican Lincoln take the steps to bring our country back together and cut out rebellion. Its ironic that if you look up the history, pretty much the things that the Democrats call Trump today is not too far off from what the called Lincoln.
The Democrats just spent three years doing absolutely nothing but attack Trump. On our dime. They could have presented legislation to help American citizens instead of focusing on illegal aliens.
cut out rebellion may be impossible at this point.
Here is my theory:
Blacks have been losing out because the Black Lives Matter movement emerged under a black president, a black attorney general, and a black Homeland Security [Secretary]that couldn't deliver on its socialist promises. Obamacare, whoring to the market-driven culture of celebrities, status, power, fame, etc. All superficial garbage that these "brats" (including hipsters) now believe are birthrights to have handed to them.
Now, We may have reached the tipping point of revolution -- These "brats" want democratic sharing of power, resources, wealth and respect. If these thugs don't get that kind of sharing, you're going to get more violent explosions.
This is going to become one hell of a summer, could be civil war and I doubt the cops will be around when the shit hits the fan. Why would they after being treated worse then the criminals? Then you have the neofascist brothers and sisters, unrecognized militia groups out there-- and they are already armed to the teeth.
All it may take is one shot or arrest of a black person.
I think a big pile of crap is about to slide down the mountain.
Is beaner out too?
Beaner! I lol’ed
To paraphrase Archie Bunker
“Jeez Edith even I haven’t used that word in years”
Lock Them Up !
You mean I can’t say nigger anymore?
If only we in the Glorious People's Banana Empire of New York had the concept of inalienable rights, one of which would include freedom of speech, and some kind of legal document to limit the apparatchiks of the People's Gubbermint from impinging upon them. But that would mean the great unwashed masses of serfs might go around saying whatever they wanted causing unimaginable levels of hurt fee-fees among the Beautiful People who rule us.
But as the word "alien" is now forbidden to be spelled or spoken, is it still OK to say Orcs or xenomorphs? Would our Betters now demand all DVD covers of the 1979 movie Alien and its sequels be changed to Undocumented Being?
I kind of like using xenomorphs now instead of illegal aliens.

Even more amusing is how our moderator tries to jack the Karen meme from the right (because the left can't meme) and uses it outside of its meaning and out of context. Then responds afterwards with a non-sequitur. My response to this would be OK Boomer.
Using the word alien in a sentence is a crime in NYC but urinating in public has been decriminalized.
I don't find much significance for "Karen" or any other memes. It's a joke.
As for non-sequiturs, the bad orange man can do it but not I?
Karen isn't a left or right-wing meme, where did Cav get that idea?
And this rule, while ridiculous, only applies to City documents. They're not making it a crime.
@Anon re: Karen
I have no idea either. But it's healthy to vent on here.
And yeah, I used a little hyperbole in my headline there but it was to add to the absurdity of the significance that the quoted people in the article were making. Hence the photo from Idiocracy.
Daily News calls to end the lockdown.
There you have it folks, the agenda of the Democratic Party is more important than life itself. Lets all get infected with the virus so the memory of a nogoodnick is immortalized in the pantheon of great American heroes like Paul Revere and Patrick Henry. We can even call it the 'George Floyd Spike' etching in stone the memory of a most worthy man for whom dozens will have likely thrown their lives away to immortalize. But he is not a Democratic hero (so they tell us) but a hero of us all. Stamps issued, coins struck, ships named in his honor.
When the spike hits and the sirens start up again (fittingly around July 4) will be hunkered down mulling over the human condition.... and how being a Democrat, once the party of Wilson, Roosevelt, and Kennedy, now is a ticket to stupidity.
"Only applies to City documents" You are dope !
The left and sadly democrats are instigating a race war and chaos .... Don't take the bait
So says Sabine Hammer:
❝I have often wondered why whites are racists—and, no other race is ...
Well, someone finally said it. How many people are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc. You pass me on the street and you sneer in my direction. You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'—and, ALL of that is okay.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you ...
So, why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Black History Month; there is Cesar Chavez Day, there is Yom Hashoah, you have Ma'uled Al-Nabi, you have the NAACP, you have BET ...
If WE had WET (White Entertainment Television), then we would be labeled racists. If WE had White Pride Day, then you would call us racists. If WE had White History Month, then we'd be racists. In fact, if WE had any organization for 'Whites Only,' in order to 'advance' our lives, then we'd be labeled racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then there is just plain Chamber of Commerce. I wonder who pays for all of that?
A white woman could not be a contestant in the Miss Black America Pageant, but ANY color woman can be in the Miss America Pageant.
If WE had a college fund that only provided the white race with scholarships, then we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed black colleges in the USA, yet if there were strictly white colleges, then we'd be racists. In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and your rights.
If WE marched for OUR race and rights, then WE would be labeled racists. You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange—and, you're not afraid to announce it. But, when WE announce OUR white pride, then you call us racists. You rob us, carjack us and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member, or he/she beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I AM PROUD—but, YOU call ME a racist. So, why IS IT that ONLY WHITES CAN BE RACISTS? There is nothing improper about this post, so let us see which of you are proud enough to forward it to others. Sadly, I don't think that many will. That is why we have LOST MOST of OUR RIGHTS in this raped, ravaged and tonsured nation of 'selective' and 'occasional' representation. WE, the WHITE PEOPLE won't stand up for ourselves. BE PROUD TO BE WHITE. It's NOT a crime—YET—but, getting closer by the hour.❞
