President Joe Biden this week decried a political demonstration by Florida and Texas, that saw dozens on migrants from the southern border flown into the ultra-posh liberal haven of Martha’s Vineyard, which sought to shed a light on the disparity between the Democratic talking points on immigration and the reality of their position.
Residents of the elite northeastern enclave, being ever-aware of their image, put on a great show, welcoming the migrants with places to stay, home-cooked meals, and just an overall warmth of character.
But, when the cameras stopped rolling, Martha’s Vineyard got real.
A Spanish TV reporter for Telemundo said Martha’s Vineyard residents privately admitted to not wanting migrants on the island.
Speaking outside St. Andrew’s church where the 50 migrants that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) shipped up to the elite liberal vacation spot, Cristina Londoño Rooney of Telemundo said that residents refused to be interviewed on camera about their displeasure with the situation for fear of appearing “inhumane.”
The reactions were downright elitist.
“A furious man passed by just a short time ago. He said that his children had to leave this island because there are no jobs or housing, and now they bring these migrants over, deceiving them with those promises,” she said.
“There are also others who blame the Biden Administration, saying it’s their fault, they don’t want the migrants here. But they don’t want to speak on-camera, either because they don’t want to be depicted as inhumane.”
And so, just like that, Florida and Texas were able to make the liberal elites admit to their biases, and reveal themselves for who they really are.
