US liberals love illegal aliens, just not in their own posh neighborhoods — Analysis
Florida Governor DeSantis sent dozens to an affluent Democrat community, sending the White House into a frenzy
After illegal immigrants were flown from Florida to an American island, progressives in America are experiencing a full-blown conniption. It was as predictable and hysterical to see the reaction from the left.
This week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis officially usurped Donald Trump as America’s reigning troll king by dumping dozens of illegal migrants into Martha’s Vineyard, an affluent island off the coast of Massachusetts where wealthy liberals spend their holidays, sipping wine and cracking oysters, far from the maddening MAGA crowd.
“It is not the responsibility of Floridians to subsidize aliens to reside in our state unlawfully; we did not consent to Biden’s open-borders agenda,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement.
The White House wasn’t amused.
The illegal immigration of planeloads into Democrat-run areas is a common practice. “just disrespectful to humanity,”Karine Jean-Pierre (White House Press Secretary) declared Thursday’s declaration without any hint of irony. The move was described as “a tremendous step forward.” “cruel, premeditated political stunt.”
Hillary Clinton accused Florida Governor Rick Scott of taking part in a series of sex offences. “human trafficking.”
Make no mistake, DeSantis’ choice of dumping zone was no accident. While many Democrat-governed cities have been ravaged in recent years by drugs and rampant crime, liberals are able to escape this madness from their remote corner of paradise. A study by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission found that the cost of living on the island is 60% higher than the national average, and housing prices are 96% higher. This is how George Carlin describes it. “It’s a small club, and you ain’t in it!”Also, there is no crime, great schools, or police protection. This is what it has been, at least until now. The shady arrivals will be rubbing elbows alongside liberal superstars like Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, David Letterman, Chelsea Handler, Bill Murray, Meg Ryan, and many other liberal crème de la crème.
Some people might be wondering what this means. After all, Democrats live by these words, which are embedded on the Statue, Liberty’s pedestal. They demand the same from the rest of the world. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore!”To accommodate millions of people living in poverty south of Rio Grande, the bleeding-heart liberals deliberately made a large gap in the US-Mexico frontier. DeSantis is the perfect solution to their invasion of humanity. So why don’t they express gratitude?
DeSantis gave the obvious solution, and he tossed it like a custard-cream pie in the face of the whole country. It boils down to hypocrisy. It is fine for the Democrats to illegally bring millions into the country. “the wretched refuse” stay confined to America’s inner-city nightmares. The only time the Democrats want to hear from these grungy newcomers is around Election Day when suddenly they’ll become desirables once again as voters.
Aside from growing their voter base, the Democrats’ strange love affair with illegals is also about virtue-signaling, which the left has turned into a form of performance art. Now they have to act disgusting and repulsive, questioning how DeSantis can dump so many dead Americans in America’s one and only country where all roads are made of gold and every faucet is filled with champagne. What nerve! He treats the rabble like a man.
The Democrats refused to put the final bricks into Trump’s border wall, yet these same people live behind highly guarded gated communities. Of course, this is not true for all Democrats. Only a small minority can afford to live the life they want. The remaining 99% must do their best to deal with crime-ridden neighborhoods in crisis.
Liberal hypocrisy doesn’t end at the border. Despite Democrats claiming to be anti gun, Hollywood movies have contributed more to the culture and violence of guns than any National Rifle Association meetings. At the same time, there isn’t a Democratic politician in the land who would be caught outside these days without a gun-toting bodyguard at their side.
Similar hypocrisy was displayed during the Covid-19 lockdowns. While Democrats boasted that they had passed strict lockdown regulations, their leaders went on partying and traveled like 1999 without masks.
Will DeSantis’ political ‘stunt’ jolt the Democrats to life, making them understand the true nature of the people leading them and their great country astray? Although it is unlikely, conservatives will be able to laugh at the unfolding disaster as long as Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are still around.
