Waitwaitwait, are you telling me that diversity is NOT our strength all of a sudden?
Martha’s Vineyard’s ‘humanitarian crisis’ is what cities on southern border see in a few hours
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew around 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, sparking uproar in liberal enclave
Martha’s Vineyard on Thursday was facing approximately 50 migrants sent by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, leading one group to call it a “humanitarian crisis” – even though the numbers are dwarfed by those encountered at border cities and towns on a daily basis.
“To our Island community, here is an update on [the] current humanitarian crisis on Martha’s Vineyard….we thank people for their continued help,” the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce tweeted.
Fox News Digital first reported on Wednesday that DeSantis’ office had sent two planes to Martha’s Vineyard Airport in Massachusetts. The moves comes after border states like Texas and Arizona have been busing migrants to Washington D.C., New York City and Chicago.
“We take what’s happening at the southern border very seriously, unlike some,” DeSantis said in a Thursday speech, “and unlike the president of the United States, who has refused to lift a finger to secure that border.”
DeSantis noted that the numbers being sent to sanctuary cities and jurisdictions was just a fraction of those being encountered at the border.
“The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they go berserk, and they’re so upset that this is happening. And it just shows you that their virtue-signaling is a fraud,” he said.
About time my man DeSantis got his ass off the pot and joined his colleagues Abbott and Ducey in trying to even things up a bit. To no one’s surprise, the self-proclaimed “elite” denizens of Martha’s Vineyard got busy having a horror-struck shitfit over having two planeloads transport of all of fifty (50) illegal aliens into their tony, oh-so-exclusive environs.

How utterly delightful, seeing these snooty, preachifying rich liberals reduced to conniptions when they get the teeniest, tiniest fraction of exactly what they’ve been dumping all over the rest of the country hurled right back in their perfect teeth. The Bee’s report hits way too close to home for Skip and Libby’s comfort.
MARTHA’S VINEYARD, MA — Residents of upscale Martha’s Vineyard are in a panic after several buses dropped off illegal immigrants from Florida this week. One terrified resident reportedly called the authorities after seeing Hispanic males outside her home, not even operating a leaf blower or any other kind of gardening equipment.
“Hello, is this 911? Yes, there are brown-looking Latinx people outside my 20,000-square-foot seaside home, and they aren’t even carrying leaf blowers,” said a terrified Mavis McWhite to the dispatcher. “They aren’t even holding so much as a rake. They’re up to no good. I’m scared! Please send help!”
Early reports from one of the wealthiest zip codes on earth indicate that approximately 50 people from countries south of the equator are striking fear in the hearts of local oligarchs, movie stars, and millionaire politicians who reside there. “It was so inconsiderate for DeSantis to ship these dark-skinned people up to our neighborhood without the tools they need to maintain our multimillion-dollar properties,” said Town Councilmember Pam Karen-Cindy. “What else are they going to do all day? Just despicable.”
At publishing time, the Hispanic immigrants who currently work as landscapers and house servants in Martha’s Vineyard for minimum wage had organized a demonstration to protest the arrival of new Hispanic immigrants who will work for even cheaper.
My gal Christina with another of her typically-brilliant smacks in the gob:
“Residents of Martha’s Vineyard overwhelmingly support illegal immigration and call for more diversity,” wrote DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw on Twitter. “Governor DeSantis was kind enough to grant their wishes.”
In the deathless words of the Greatest President EVAR: you would think they would be saying thank you. And yet. Lots of sidesplitting hilarity over at Ace’s joint, including but not limited to this rip:
Lol. Commenter on Twitter just now:
“Ron DeSantis has done more to diversify Martha’s Vineyard in 24 hours than its privileged and elitist residents have done since its founding in 1642. This is a win for diversity, why aren’t they all celebrating? This man needs to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom.”

A: you shouldn’t. Ever.
I’m still laughing at the loons. DeSantis, Abbot, and every other Southern Gov should send every single illegal to these places. Line the buses up at the border and transport them north.
I laughed until I laughed harder.
Should have been done 30 years ago, when it would have made a difference.
Now, nothing short of flamethrowers will avail.
I still say that Governor DeSantis should have delivered them via Air Pinochet!
Put the all-female engineering teams to work in designing a catapult which can fling a human from Florida to New England. Even if their design fails (which it will) and the human-ish payload is flung into the ocean or is crushed by a collapsing crossarm, who cares? Illegal aliens deserve no human rights.
Ah, but Air Pinochet could get two-fer-one! Disembark them over the appropriate location and get a ground kill as well.
It’s starting to look like DeSantis pulled a political stunt for his political campaign, not for the benefit of the country/Florida.
The movements of some illegals to Martha’s Vineyard and other places has been politically astute moves by both DeSantis and Abbott.
Once again. I have suspicions about DeSantis being the alternative to Trump from the Establishment side. Once again. It’s way too early to tell.
I continue to watch and assess.
Right now Trump is a known quantity. So DeSantis has tomorrow he can do something Trump couldn’t against the opposition of his own Party.
This has been a nice move. It will get old soon though. IOW ok Ron, you made your point, now what are you going to do about it? They’re not going to be shamed into doing something different, even if they lose the Midterms. What happens when they still don’t defend the borders after that? Assuming they don’t massively cheat anyway.
DeSantis is still Missouri. Show Me.
Follow the money.
It all leads to the same people that were backing jeb!
DeSantis is not what you think he is if you think he is a fighter for freedom and liberty.
