Behind the lawn-sign platitudes beats the heart of a NIMBY

Behind the lawn-sign platitudes beats the heart of a NIMBY

It’s been rather amusing seeing how quickly the lawn-sign platitude crowd reveals their true NIMBY nature when the rubber meets the road.

Thanks to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis following through on a promise he made last year to start sending illegal aliens to places like Martha’s Vineyard and Biden’s home state of Delaware, Democrats who never tire of telling us how noble and virtuous they are quickly shifted from “Immigrants Welcome!” to “Not in My Backyard.”

It took Martha’s Vineyard less than two days to coral the 50 illegal aliens DeSantis flew to their island, load them onto buses, and send them to a military base, but not before making a grand show of how charitable and virtuous they were.

But it’s easy to be virtuous for less than two days.

A friend once told me not to rush into a relationship because any guy can be a gentleman in the short term. It’s over the long term that you find out the true nature of a guy.

The same holds true for lawn-sign liberals.

Martha’s Vineyard could only maintain the optics of kindness for about a day before the NIMBY nature that drives them came bubbling to the surface. But the NIMBY nature was there long before the charter plane had even touched down.

Trust me, arranging to get 50 illegals shipped to a military base on Cape Cod isn’t something that can be done in an instant. So while they played “Welcoming Hosts” for the benefit of the news media and Twitter, behind the scenes Martha’s Vineyard was hard at work making the arrangements to get those illegals the hell off their island.

This is the problem with lawn sign political posturing. It’s a veneer behind which hides a NIMBY hoping like hell that her lawn-sign platitudes are never put to the test.

Meanwhile, since Biden became president, border towns have become flooded with thousands of illegal aliens while the same corporate news outlets that deployed a phalanx of reporters to Martha’s Vineyard continue to turn a blind eye to the situation.

For the better part of a year, the Biden administration has been shuttling illegal aliens from the border to interior states including Florida, in the dead of night and with no advance notice. And except for the New York Post and Fox News, nobody in the American corporate media has reported on it.

But four dozen illegals land on Martha’s Vineyard, and the entire Democrat establishment goes to Defcon 4 with some of them even demanding the Justice Department investigate whether Ron DeSantis engaged in “human trafficking.”

The funniest part about this whole thing is that the media is trying to portray Operation Expose NIMBY as a huge failure on the part of Ron DeSantis.

Thursday afternoon, Huffington Post reporter Kevin Robillard tweeted, “DeSantis made a classic mistake: He gave New England liberals a chance to show how virtuous they are.”

It might have been a “classic mistake” if the “virtuous” New England liberals had managed to go longer than a day before their true NIMBY nature got the better of them.

Does this sound like a guy whose mission failed?

Anyroad. It’s good to be back.

Thanks for being so understanding during my weeklong absence.

I appear to be recovering well from last week’s “walk face-first into a wall” mishap. I can breathe through my nose again, the half-moon bruises under my eyes have faded, and the blinding headaches aren’t constant anymore.

This is the longest I’ve ever gone without posting at since I launched in 2015. Even when I ended up hospitalized with a severe infection I was still posting from my hospital bed, albeit while stoned out of my mind on morphine.

    “Unless you’re here to do my lawn, you need to get on that bus right now!”

    We Floridians love our Gov! Where was the outrage when 70 flights full of illegals landed in the dark of night in JAX, Fl? Media: ***Crickets***. How is it not heartless to fly these people into a non-sanctuary state where they are NOT welcome? DeSantis tore the cloak off of hypocrisy. God bless him!

    Lawn-sign liberals, limousine liberals for the 21st century.

    All those crickets you hear? They want us to eat them. Welcome back, Dianny!!

    Welcome back. I was beginning to worry.

    Every conservative needs to put on 24/7 ads with a split screen showing the big jets landing illegals in Florida at O’dark thirty juxtaposed against the military forcing the 50 “welcomed migrants” onto buses to forcibly remove them from MFer’s Vineyard. There is zero chance that the racist, brain-dead local liberals will ever recognize their own breathtaking hypocrisy, but perhaps some in the rest of the country will see them for the lying scum they are. p.s. FJB.

    NIMBY. I was accused of that years ago. We used to live in a northwest suburb of Chicago that was split evenly between two counties. All the politicians lived in the newer, northern half. The village board wanted to allow yet another car dealership in the southern half—well away from their homes, but the land was zoned residential. An attorney in our neighborhood let everyone know. We quickly organized and went to board meetings. The board actually had the audacity to accuse us all of being NIMBY’s. We laughed and told them to build it in their backyard. The meeting became quite contentious. We later were labeled the “radical residents” by the board. We proudly owned it. The board eventually backed down and later, a beautiful subdivision of homes was built instead. That was 20 years ago. All the other car dealerships are now boarded up and the lots are overgrown with weeds. My family moved out of that liberal nightmare years ago and the south side residents didn’t care enough to fight like we did for good businesses and property development, so the south side of that village has become a sea of check cashing stations, cash for gold, payday loans, and boarded up businesses. The kids in the area take over the fast food joints after school, tearing up the places and doing drug deals when they think no one is watching. The north side, where all the politicians still live has none of these things and continues to be a protected enclave, like Martha’s Vineyard is. Overall, the village is struggling financially due to wasteful
    spending, bad decisions, and mismanagement. The lesson: become the radical resident, especially in these times. If we all band together, they will fear us. If we shrug our shoulders and remain silent, then we will continue to live in this nightmare world. They don’t like to be confronted with the truth. Confront them.
