    Stop playing with the semantics. No one is talking about immigrants here. We're talking about illegal aliens, who are indeed invaders. The only fix is to disenfranchise totally all those here illegally.

    Sure I do. We all do. Do you believe that languages are static?


    Do Mexicans consider themselves to be native Americans? Or Mexicans. Ditto for all other countries on both continents...

    The "Americas" never meant "American", nor were the citizens of Central, South or any other part of the Americas referred to as Americans. The later refers to the citizens of the United States of America. Stop trying to rewrite history to suit your PC view.

    I understand that you hate your country and you hate the voters. So you will make every effort to import, through legal and illegal means, a new group of people that you intend to make into citizens so one party rule can become a new reality.

    I do not care what you call youself. It is possible that you view yourself as un-American.
    My clarifying your misuse of the English language does not in any manner display a hatred of the US, on the contrary, your Nativist ideology does in fact cause you to spew hatred upon the very action that caused your ancestors to be here.....immigration. This hypocrisy at the base of Nativism never seems to be realized by them...you included.

    It's your misuse of the historical language. Examine your own hypocrisy.

    Sure, Central Americans were never referred to as such, nor are South Americans.

    Of course....gawd.....or someone else of his/her stature declared at some point that "American" is the exclusive reference for US citizens!

    Oh the hubris, the self-importance, the egotism, the pomposity, the superciliousness, the superiority......

    American - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    : a person born, raised, or living in the U.S.

    The language being "English", derived from old English, German, Dutch, Latin.....


    Is the irony sinking in yet?

    Examine your own hypocrisy.
    Sure, just as soon as you can describe it.

    Of course they are not static, but since you already understood and rejected the common understanding of what Native American is, you don't get to then appropriate it when an existing, accurate definition exists that fits your self described notions, ie Nativist.


    Do Mexicans consider themselves to be native Americans? Or Mexicans. Ditto for all other countries on both continents...
    They by and large Mestizo, they have the right to claim they are Americans, from the aspect that their ancestors lived and migrated throughout North and Central America before the US was formed. The term America was first applied to South America.

    They aren't invading. They're being used by big ag, the meat packing industry, and restaurants to make your food cheap. In return, they get mostly scorn, much like your ancestors and mine got when they came here back in the day. Eventually, their descendants will be as American as you and I. Then, unfortunately, they'll probably go online and bitch about the next group of immigrants.
