When the Associated Press announced it was dropping the term “illegal immigrant” from its stylebook, the world’s largest news-gathering outlet did offer reporters “acceptable variations,” such as “living in a country without legal permission.” The Washington Post might have settled on its own variation, which is leaving illegal immigration status out of its reporting entirely.

Washington Post reporter Justin Jouvenal is live-tweeting the murder trial of Julio Miguel Blanco Garcia, a day laborer who is charged in the brutal stabbing death of 19-year-old Vanessa Pham. Blanco Garcia has pleaded not guilty, and his defense attorney says his client, who was planning to steal TVs from a store, was hallucinating from having smoked several PCP-laced cigarettes. It was “a perfect storm of tragedy,” see?

Everyone knows that “MT” stands for “modified tweet,” but some harsh doses of truth require WWMTM, for “Wow, way more than modified.”

Don’t worry; there’s no charge for adding pertinent facts.

Why bring up Blanco Garcia’s immigration status? First, because the Washington Post has a habit of leaving it out of its coverage, and second, because as Malkin noted on her website:

The horrific murder of Vanessa Pham was 100 percent preventable. Blanco-Garcia never should have been here in the first place. After each encounter with law enforcement, he should have been detained, deported and kept out. For good.

But … Dreamers! Or something.

    To the liberal media, pointing out how many murders and rapes in this country are committed by illegal aliens doesn’t fit the agenda. How can the Democrats reward illegals with free citizenship and free handouts at our expense if people are worried about getting raped, murdered, or robbed by these “undocumented Democrats.”

    But I bet if the killer had voted Republican once in his life, the liberal media would make damn sure to point that out every other sentence. But since he’s a criminal (anyone here illegally is breaking the law, making them a criminal), they want to make sure he is seen as a victim.

    I can see it now. “Poor guy, trying to swing a knife around while on PCP and some girl had to get in his way to try to get him in trouble!” – Rachel Maddow or one of the other illegal loving liberals from MSNBC or CNN. Remember, to liberals, the “REAL” victim is the person who committed the murder.

      Good luck getting anyone to bet against that! As it is, they point out that people who are even acquitted of crimes are Republican when they aren’t. Howdja like to see George Zimmerman as GOP Prez Candidate, hurr hurr?

    Each time I read of these kind of stories, and others published today, I can’t help but ponder how amazing this country would be if it was filled with nothing but law abiding citizens who shared conservative values. I don’t care the race…just point me in the direction of a place where I can leave the keys in my car while I run in to get some milk, safely hitch a ride on the way home if my car breaks down and crack bread or share a cold one with people who have either served their country, state, city or town (military, police, firefighters, first responders, etc) or at the least, damn sure value those who have.

    When I retire, I want to find such a place. Wish me luck.

    On some page deep in the senate immigration bill, he will get amnesty and citizenship to vote when he is out in 25+ years. As a convicted felon he will lose the right to vote but that is amnestied as well when he get amnesty for his immigration violation.

          There are a lot of factors in that, but parents are huge contributors. So many parents with money are unwilling to deny their children for their own good. I won’t say we had money, but we were upper middle class. We had a 1977 Toyota Corolla that was no longer being used because my dad got a new car. I asked if I could have it, I was just about to turn 16. He said, “sure, $1000 dollars.” I was so angry with him that I ended up buying a car from someone else, but I still paid more than $1000 in 1985. Even though I was angry at him at the time, I look back and thank god he wouldn’t just give me stuff. It’s a lesson my own son is finding hard to stomach as well.

    What do they think it means to be here without legal permission? That is de facto illegal no matter what labels you use. That means they see we’re not serious about enforcing certain pesky laws.

    These leftists know intuitively that they’re part of the problem. They’re deranged theories have led us here and they must lie to cover up as much as they can while they search for the perfect social recipe and come up with a plan to get rid of those “bitter clingers” that “ruin everything.”

    Then America needs to stop talking and start doing. Why? Liberals are accredited liars, they’re racists and incredibly self serving. Words alone will never defeat a creature of manipulation.
    It took the civil war to stop the dems slave trade. It took marches and federal action led by Republicans to bring about the civil rights act and integration.
    Today dems have accumulated great power by manipulation and revisions. They have hidden the past and now threaten our future. They have allies in the media, federal government and the wealthy elite of the 1%. Using words will not have power as liberals now define what those words mean and how they apply.
    Unless America is willing to truly get involved and use force, liberals will only grow in power and the people will only continue to lose it. Americans have the right to remove their government when it becomes a threat to the peoples freedom and the strength of the peoples power. If this right is not executed soon, the struggle ahead will be near impossible.
    A Constitutional Convention must be called. “When a government fears it’s people, there is freedom, when the people fear it’s government, there is tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

    The local rag here, The Houston Chronicle, does the same lack of reporting; however, it is easy to decipher. The only time legal status is not specifically mentioned is when the suspect is here illegally. Likewise, if the race of the suspect is not mentioned then they are black. Easy Peasy but highly annoying. Reporting should be inclusive of all known facts not edited for political correctness.

    A journalist reports facts in a neutral & unbiased manner devoid of personal opinion. That is what I learned in J-school. It continues to be obvious that the Wash.Post & all NBC related news departments are in need of basic reporting refresher courses, unless of course one states this is an editorial or commentary; which they do not state.

    These are NOT news organizations, they are opinion pieces stitched together under the guise of a news.

  • Danceswithdachshunds

    Perhaps we need a Gannett style map of the home addresses of all liberal reporters for all the violent repeat offending illegals to look at to decide who would be a good choice for their next victim? Liberal reporters are unlikely to be armed and will be unable/unwilling to defend themselves, they will be very sympathetic to the “unfortunate circumstances” of the illegal that “forced” them to break into the reporter’s home that are no different than those that “forced” them to be in our country illegally and, if the reporter is sadly murdered like Vanessa Pham they’ll become martyrs for the cause of liberal media bias. I see no downside in this idea…?
