It has long been said that wealthy, elitist Democrats don’t care about illegal immigration because they don’t have illegal immigrants in their neighborhoods. Ron Desantis has proven that old saying to be correct by shipping some illegals to Martha’s Vineyard.

FDR put inconvenient non-whites into military guarded camps. Now the left has found another group of non-white people to put into camps. Less than 36 hours after arriving in Martha’s Vineyard, which declared itself to be a sanctuary location, the immigrants that arrived there were shipped off to a concentration camp to be guarded by 125 National Guard troops activated for that express purpose.

It isn’t that liberals don’t understand hypocrisy or cognitive dissonance, as Miguel argues. They fully understand it. The leftists have simply decided that they don’t have to follow the rules that they have set for others.

In the meantime, everyone on the left who supports this needs to be called a racist who supports putting Hispanics into concentration camps.

Border state governors need to take heed of this precedent and activate their NG to ship illegals back out of their states.

The aliens will probably wind up just walking away from Camp Edwards. The evacuated homeless from Katrina did the same thing and became a nuisance on the upper Cape. The whole episode has been a major success for the anti invasion side. The deep blue elites have been exposed as virtue signaling frauds who merely kicked in some pizza and a cot for the night before giving the bums the bum’s rush off of the island. That is how you do political warfare. They need to keep sending them there, it has far more impact then DC or NYC A few more plane loads here will likely see all pretense of sanctimonious woke humanitarianism dropped, only to be replaced by undisquised hatred for the loathsome poor people looking for free stuff. The people living with squatters in the lower net worth cities of America will take note of how quickly the authorities sprang into action to get these foreigners out of town when it is a jet setter’s zip code. More resentment or the elites if that keeps up.
It must be dawning on the aliens too at this point that the warm embraces and smiles they got from the islanders were a facade. Sitting in the spartan barracks at Edwards after landing among the multi-million dollar palaces of Edgartown has enlightened them to where the real wealth is in America, and that they are not welcome to it. As this group and the others move about the country looking for the best handout opportunities, they will almost certainly end up with more than they deserve, but much less than they were expecting. The recession will grind on and the charitable welcomes will become fewer. When they devolve into bands of lawless looters, (not that far to fall actually) we can only hope they remember what the rich towns look like and take their frustrations out on them.

    You know, as an afterthought, this counter strategy by Team Desantis could devolve quickly into a game of expensive flights back and forth with the hot potato invaders. It will become increasingly difficult to get them onto a bus or plane as this goes on once they have been clued in that they are just pawns. I am wondering how long it will be before the rich enclaves close down the regional airports to all traffic in an attempt to stem the invasion tide. This thing has some potential to kick the ongoing destabilization into high gear.

Take it to the next level. Send them some of those inner city blacks they love so much. Perhaps some Somali rapefugees. Keep it going.
