Whose Vineyard Is It Really?

“In case you missed it, this week’s Threat to Democracy is Ron DeSantis. The governor of Florida sent fifty migrants up to Martha’s Vineyard in a kind of ‘shot across the bow’ directed at the inhabitants of that retrofitted progressive enclave, prompting The New York Times to give him an updated psychological profile. ‘He may be a more competent Trump in terms of his ability to use the levers of state to amass power, but he’s also meaner and more rigid, without the soft edges and eccentricity of the actual Donald Trump,’ writes Jamelle Bouie. In short, Ron DeSantis is literally fascism. This latest stunt is a glimpse into the man’s soul, showing him to be a callous leader with no regard for human life. That’s, of course, a ridiculous thing to say.” (09/20/22)
