(CNN) — Last month’s Supreme Court decision in the landmark Arizona immigration case was groundbreaking for what it omitted: the words “illegal immigrants” and “illegal aliens,” except when quoting other sources. The court’s nonjudgmental language established a humanistic approach to our current restructuring of immigration policy.
Now, you may have a tendency to treat marketing consultants’ opinions as self-serving spin, but, you don’t understand, this guy is a Hispanic Marketing Consultant, so you’d better listen to him. After all, we newspaper editors get almost all our opinions about immigration from Hispanic Marketing Consultants. They’re the Gold Standard when you need a quote in a hurry about immigration. They always return phone calls and always tell our reporters exactly what they want to hear. So, listen up, buddy.
Look, the leadership class of America bet the country based on what Hispanic marketing consultants told us. Now, we could go around all day on whether or not that was a prudent move, but, seriously, do you expect us to to tell you, oops, we shouldn’t have believed Hispanic marketing consultants without doublechecking? Of course not. We’re just going to keep force-feeding you the views of Hispanic marketing consultants until nobody can remember that there’s any other way to think.
