Republicans [sic] Use Huddled Masses Yearning to Breathe Free to Own the Libs

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s decision to send dozens of Venezuelan refugees from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard has turned into a major controversy. Republicans have been sending buses of immigrants to blue states for some time now, but this was something different. A woman calling herself ‘Perla’ reportedly lied outright to the refugees, telling them that there were work permits and housing ready for them on the island. There were none, and neither did DeSantis’s goons call ahead to warn any officials on the island. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has since attempted to one-up DeSantis …. That’s the conservative movement for you: gleeful, depraved cruelty as part of a political stunt to distract from their own horrible policies and candidates.” [editor’s note: One more “progressive” pundit who ignores how the Blue t-shirt war party wing has been doing the same – SAT] (09/19/22)
