Fighting is conceptually difficult and strategically simple. At least at a basic level. Hit back. Do to them what they’re doing to you.
Gov. Abbott in Texas, Gov. Ducey in Arizona and Gov. DeSantis in Florida are doing it. And they’re learning the old Alinsky lesson that fighting is actually fun once the other side squeals.
Sending migrants to D.C. and NYC was fun. What are you gonna do to top that?
A plane carrying approximately 48 migrants from Venezuela and Colombia landed unexpectedly at Martha’s Vineyard Airport Wednesday afternoon. Island officials and emergency management representatives were gathering to deal with the situation.
This is exactly what lefty groups were doing to direct illegal aliens around the country. Some of those non-profits were funded by the good vacationers of Martha’s Vineyard.
Sen. Julian Cyr said the plane originated in San Antonio, Tex., and appeared to be part of a larger campaign to divert migrants from border states.
Divert. They’re supposed to overrun western states. Not Martha’s Vineyard.
“Just like the reverse freedom rides in the 1960s, this endeavor is a cruel ruse that is manipulating families who are seeking a better life,” Senator Cyr said.
I’m sure they can find a good life here.
“They came with folders with a pamphlet with our information,” said Beth Folcarelli, chief executive officer of Martha’s Vineyard Community Services. “We don’t have refugee services, I had no idea about any of this. I only found out because one of them gave me their folder. Imagine being dropped in here knowing no one. Absolutely no one. It’s heartbreaking.”
Why are there no refugee services? Or affordable housing?
Just like all the suburbs that were turned into slums by federal judges, it’s time to force Martha’s Vineyard to build housing projects. And to diversify beyond the Obamas. Martha’s Vineyard needs to look like the rest of America or face $50,000 a day fines.
It’s the right side of history.
