Kavanaugh and this blogger both enjoyed (more or less) the Jesuit high-school experience. During that time, this blogger was taught that "words matter"--so much so that we learned words in English, Latin, and Greek.
Maybe Kavanaugh's instructors were seriously deficient in that regard; or maybe Kavanaugh has decided that words DON'T matter. PowerLine essays on the issue.
A dispute has been brewing in federal courts about what to call people who are in this country unlawfully. In the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, Judge Beverly Martin, an Obama appointee, has taken to writing concurring opinions in which says these people should be called “non-citizens” rather than “illegal aliens.”...
...Under no circumstances would I call them non-citizens because that’s a less than full description, and therefore a misleading one. An illegal immigrant (or alien) is always a non-citizen, but a non-citizen isn’t always an illegal immigrant....
Doesn't take much to think of "Ambassador", does it?
Well, it does for Kavanaugh.
...Where did the practice of mislabeling illegal immigrants began? It may have started with this opinion by Justice Brett Kavanaugh from last year. In footnote 2, he wrote: “This opinion uses the term ‘noncitizen’ as equivalent to the statutory term ‘alien.’ See 8 U. S. C. §1101(a)(3).”...
A now-deceased Jebby of my acquaintance would say "Sorry!! ZERO!!" to Kavanaugh for his prostitution of the language to his PC leanings.
And that would be well-deserved.
I never trusted Kavanaugh. Msgr. John Enzler--a close, close friend of Kavanaugh's--was ubiquitous during the confirmation process. Aside from running the execrable, illegal-alien-facilitating Catholic Charities, Enzler is a decades-long practitioner of Communion-for-baby-killers.
That East Coast Episcopalian "theology" poisons everything it touches. See GHWBush, Rockefeller,........
Kavanaugh's mom should be ashamed.
