The Left freaked out when their pals on Martha’s Vineyard got just a small taste of what Texas experiences every day.
But that was just the beginning of their insincere virtue signaling.
Because Chick-fil-A just exposed the true scale of Democrats’ Martha’s Vineyard freakout.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to ship illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard sent the Left into a complete and total meltdown.
A grand total of 50 illegal aliens were sent to the island on Wednesday and by Thursday the local Chamber of Commerce, along with the rest of the leftists on the island and nationwide, were calling the situation a “humanitarian crisis.”
The number was only slightly larger than the people in line at dinnertime at the drive-thru window at the nearest Chick-Fil-A, so it should have been hardly noteworthy or outrageous.
Ten bedrooms at the Obamas’ mansion on Martha’s Vineyard alone
You would think that an island full of mansions and leftists who proclaim their love for the downtrodden would be able to handle 50 people – there’s reportedly ten vacant bedrooms at the Obamas’ Vineyard mansion alone.
Democrats went completely hypocritical and a viral video from a resident of the island proves it.

The Martha’s Vineyard resident said, “At some point, they have to move from here to somewhere else… We don’t have the services to take care of 50 immigrants…we don’t have housing for 50 more people.”
And it didn’t take long before the Martha’s Vineyard leftists got their wish.
Within 48 hours of arrival, the government sprung into action and the 50 illegal immigrants were “voluntarily taken to a military base” on Cape Cod, CNN reported.
The sheer chutzpah of these people is nothing short of breathtaking.
In Texas and Arizona, the border crisis has just been a fact of life for many years.
Individual towns are being overrun with tens of thousands of illegal aliens every month, and the problem is only being enabled and expanded by the Biden administration.
GOP Senator demolished the Left with one question
Senator Ted Cruz responded bluntly, “If 50 constitutes a humanitarian crisis in Martha’s Vineyard, what the hell is 4.2 MILLION?”

One wonders what the pearl-clutching Massachusetts leftists think about the border towns subjected to hundreds of thousands of migrants crossing every month when they complained about the services and resources needed to accommodate 50 in their area.
Or whether they even think about that at all.
But there’s no introspection, not even a fleeting thought that just maybe these people have been wrong about this all along.
Up to this point the border crisis has remained only theoretical, and it’s been only too easy to talk of compassion when they aren’t having to actually give it.
That’s the Democrats.
That’s who they are.
