Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sure has rubbed plenty of liberals the wrong way by sending the immigrants they’ve openly enticed straight to their doorstep.
However, as DeSantis pointed out in a rather savvy statement last week, various leftists states should be delighted by the arrivals, given their “sanctuary” status.
“States like Massachusetts, New York, and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country’ by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as ‘sanctuary states’ and support for the Biden Administration’s open border policies,” the statement noted.
Indeed, such logic does not escape those who are open-minded, notably celebrity podcaster Charlamagne tha God.
Before Biden was elected president, he declared that a black person who doesn’t vote for him “ain’t black” on Charlamagne’s podcast, and such a remark likely sat with the podcaster for a long time afterwards.
As evidenced by his recent defense of DeSantis amid a sea of Hollywood hysterics.
“For months, Republican governors have sent busloads of illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities like New York, D.C., and Chicago, with the message of, ‘If you like them so much, they’re yours, OK?” Charlamagne began.
Seriously. After all, they want illegal immigration so badly, they may as well deal with it entirely themselves.
“Well, just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis upped the game by sending two planefuls of immigrants to the East Coast, elites’ favorite vacation island, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts,” Charlamagne continued.
Clever move on DeSantis’s part, no doubt. Or, as Charlamagne puts it, “genius.”
“I personally think it’s genius,” Charlamagne remarked gleefully.
In fact, the podcaster went a step further and continued to shred other Democrats while giving a shoutout to Texas Governor Greg Abbott alongside DeSantis.
“But I wish that governors like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott would give Democratic governors and mayors more of a heads-up, because then, that would expose the hypocrisy of the Democrats, which is they don’t want immigrants here, either,” Charlamagne remarked.
Bam. Now that’s the truth the White House won’t admit.
They’d rather falsely accuse the Florida governor of “kidnapping” (despite the migrants’ consent) than admit the truth: The border is an unmitigated disaster, as well as a human rights catastrophe.
One of the participants on the panel also took the opportunity to shred another notorious area of Democrat hypocrisy: the treatment of the homeless.
Panelist Rye Wood Jr. noted that Democrats oftentimes say one thing in public while doing another thing in private, especially when it comes to vulnerable populations.
“A lot of these Democratic cities, ‘Oh, we love people, oh we love people. Hey homeless man, get your a** out of here.’ They deliberately hide people already. So a lot of these Democrats that are complaining about the Republicans are running something similar within their own counties,” Wood remarked disgustedly.
Seriously. No wonder a homeless man threw a water bottle at California Governor Gavin Newsom, a staunch Democrat and rumored 2024 presidential candidate, after the leftist made one of his many phony public appearances.
Humorously, the homeless man was promptly arrested, likely the only arrest of a homeless individual that entire year.
After all, only Emperor Newsom deserves the protection of the law.
No wonder DeSantis has scored $170M+ more in fundraising than Newsom has.
However, the left apparently remains as clueless as ever, given the rather hilarious class action lawsuit initiated by the deceptively named “Lawyers for Civil Right.”
According to the leftist lawyers, Florida officials allegedly “designed and executed a premeditated, fraudulent, and illegal scheme centered on exploiting this vulnerability for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests.”
Unfortunately, the well-coiffed yet intellectually empty lawyers of Massachusetts failed to identify a single violation that occurred.
Which is why yet another DeSantis statement shredded their non-argument to pieces.
“It is opportunistic that activists would use illegal immigrants for political theater. If these activists spent even a fraction of this time and effort at the border, perhaps some accountability would be brought to the Biden Administration’s reckless border policies that entice illegal immigrants to make dangerous and often lethal journeys through Central America and put their lives in the hands of cartels and Coyotes,” the statement noted wryly.
Seriously. Significant human tragedy could have been avoided had the White House not “played politics” with people’s lives.
“The transportation of the immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard was done on a voluntary basis. The immigrants were homeless, hungry, and abandoned – and these activists didn’t care about them then,” the statement continued.
That’s right. They only “cared” when the migrants became inconvenient.
“Florida’s program gave them a fresh start in a sanctuary state and these individuals opted to take advantage of chartered flights to Massachusetts,” the statement added, “it was disappointing that Martha’s Vineyard called in the Massachusetts National Guard to bus them away from the island within 48 hours.”
It was deeply disappointed indeed.
After all, the left opposes the National Guard when BLM is literally setting entire cities on fire, provided that they aren’t impacted at all.
Nearly 50 actually peaceful migrants show up to Martha’s Vineyard, yet the left immediately uses the National Guard to expel them.
