The Dallas Morning News, Rod Dreher, and the Americanization of the illegal alien

Here, for reference, is a collection of the VFR blog entries that were set off by the Dallas Morning News’ essay declaring the Illegal Alien to be the Texan of the Year. The list includes Rod Dreher’s blog entry and discussion, which is the main resource for this debate.

How many flip-flops can one writer have, before he can hear readers sigh?

Larry Auster: Blog first, think later [This is Dreher’s reply to me at his Crunchy Con blog, followed by a long discussion in which I explain and defend my position and show clearly the real meaning of the Texan of the Year essay. Note: Rod Dreher has had no reply to my argument that to call the Illegal Alien the “Texan of the Year” in and of itself means that all illegal aliens are Americans, thus making it morally impossible for us to treat them as illegal aliens.]
