DEFENDING THE LANGUAGE: They are NOT ‘Immigrants!’

The next time I hear someone call these people 'immigrants,' I think I am going to have a Samuel Jackson -- Pulp Fiction moment on them.  You know, something like this (the G rated version, anyway): "Say immigrant one -- more -- time!  I dare you!  I double darn dare you!"

This is a fact: the NFL is not protest8ing, and this has nothing to do with social justice.  The NFL is participating in open subversion of this Nation -- the very nation to which it owes its own existence.
