Fox News host Tucker Carlson scolded the liberal community of Martha’s Vineyard after a shipment of illegal aliens sent by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was swiftly deported to a military base by the island’s wealthy residents.
“Is Martha’s Vineyard really congratulating itself for surviving its ever so brief encounter with Hispanics?” Carlson asked. “Yes, it is. One nonprofit on the island called the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation posted this message on its website. Again, this is real: ‘Our immigrant visitors have left the island. They have expressed enormous gratitude for the outpouring of support and generosity shown by the island community, which was heartfelt and overflowing.'”
“These people called the Army in to have the Hispanics shipped to a military base, but the Hispanics are very grateful to be shipped to a military base by the Army,” Carlson noted. “They’re grateful for the attention. The foundation also praised island residents for raising $40,000 in a fundraiser for the migrants. Oh, but not really for the migrants, because none of the money is going to actual migrants. Of course, it’s not.”
“‘The Vineyard community stepped up in an unprecedented way,'” Carlson recited mockingly. “Really? On whose behalf? Oh, its own. The money went to them. They raised money for themselves, not for the Venezuelans. Hilarious!”
The Fox News host continued, “But if you want to know, in any community across the United States where the locust of self-congratulatory posturing is, where the most insufferable people in any given town that, of course, would be the local Episcopal Church and in Edgartown, on Martha’s Vineyard, that is St Andrew’s Episcopal and needless to say, as is their inclination, they self-congratulated big-time.”
“‘We have been so overwhelmed with everyone’s kind words and thought and financial support for our brothers and sisters from Venezuela,'” Carlson said, quoting the message. “Our brothers and sisters who we had deported instantly by men with guns. So, we thought we’d check in with our brothers and sisters in Venezuela, but unfortunately, they’re locked up on a military base, so they could not be reached for comment tonight.
