If Ron DeSantis hates communism he shouldn't weaponize victims of communism

(Reason) In May, Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill establishing a "Victims of Communism Day" in his state "to honor the hundreds of millions of people who have suffered under communist regimes across the world."

"While it's fashionable in some circles to whitewash the history of communism," DeSantis said in a statement, "Florida will stand for truth and remain as a beachhead for freedom."

One would assume that promise would extend to migrants fleeing economic ruin and humanitarian turmoil in Venezuela, a country that DeSantis has decried for its "communist regime." But with DeSantis' decision this week to fly around 50 Venezuelan migrants to Martha's Vineyard, the governor's commitment to supporting the victims of crushing left-wing regimes is questionable...

    It seems that,

    TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP...TRUMP 2.0 is

    RON DE SAN TIS
    RON DE SAN TIS
    RON DE SAN TIS...AHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Curt, I'm afraid that the hypocrisy cited by the author is lost on his adoring fans. All they're add apt to see is DeSantis sticking it to the Dems. What could be more important than that?

    Being the savy politician he is, he took full advantage of the moment. Sadly I predict that his stunt will improve his numbers.

    "[...] TRUMP 2.0 is

    RON DE SAN TIS [...]"
    -Hate

    It's why YOU like him, Bill. It's why YOU are gonna vote for him. Thoughtful of you to spell it out here like that and admit what has been blatantly obvious to all here for some time now.

    You see him as the next best thing to your Mango Messiah. He's every bit as despicable as Trump is. He's just as sociopathic and bigoted. Just as hurtful and inhuman, lacking in all empathy for his fellow man.

    Hey...! You know, you have never expounded on just what it is about Trump that you found worthy of declaring him despicable. You've always just left it at saying he's despicable. I guess that way you don't go too far out on a limb in criticizing your Orange Lord and Master and then have to back-peddle your justifications for worshiping him.

    Here's your chance to kill two birds with one stone. Explain to us why you think Trump is despicable but DeSantis ain't. Ain't? I mean seriously... ain't.


    Tell us, Bill, why DeSantis is nowhere near as despicable as Trump is/was.....

    Sticking it to Dems? Secondarily, maybe.

    Do you know that the good people of Martha’s Vineyard designated their island a place of sanctuary?

    DeSantis' brilliance is getting the white elite progressives to prove that Martha’s Vineyard ain't a place of sanctuary.

    I doubt DeSantis knew that the whole Blue MAGA SwampMedia would go so bonkers and that you, as OD calls you, "sheeple" just would just fall in line...

    What a story!

    GOPs have been shipping migrants to DC, NYC and Chicago, all cities populated with people of color in large majorities. That you, Donna, and your whole ilk, joined in the outcry over this Martha’s Vineyard thing tells me something about the evil packed into progressivism in this century.

    What shameless racism.

    Of course the white elites on Martha’s Vineyard are hypocrites. Everyone AIN'T welcome. But, your side's lack of concern when the GOPs' target was merely black cities...

    ...says it all.

    Link? Of course you cannot provide a link because Martha's Vineyard is not a sanctuary. Nor is Massachusetts a sanctuary state. There are eight sanctuary cities in Massachusetts none of which are on Martha's Vineyard Island.

    Back to the original question. Unlike the southwest, we have very few Mexicans. Our Latino population is made up of Cubans, Nicaraguans, Venezuelans, Colombians, Puerto Rico, and the other Caribbean Islands. Many of these people have come from Communist countries. But it is "funny" that when I mention Maduro and Venezuela, the sheep here declared he wasn't so bad and he wasn't even a "socialist" country. It makes me wonder about your ethics.

    Said nobody here ever.

    Gang,

    pb stands corrected on Martha's Vineyard specifically being a place of sanctuary.

    Massachusetts status as a sanctuary state is unclear.

    What is Massachusetts' sanctuary status?

    In 2017, Massachusetts' top state court ruled that Massachusetts court officers do not have the authority to arrest someone suspected of being in the U.S. illegally if that person is not facing criminal charges, the state's highest court ruled Monday. That's effectively gave the state sanctuary status.

    Thank you Hts.

    od: In a socialist country, there would be no private ownership of businesses. I have no idea which countries would qualify as socialist using that criterion.


  10. by oldedude on September 18, 2022 8:04 pm
    Cuba, Nicaragua for sure. Colombia is still in the midst of a dictatorship that will turn socialist as well as Honduras, Peru, et.al.

    Please remember this when you say that we can have socialism like some of the European countries. They are welfare states. The people are reliant on the government for the majority of benefits, but the means of production are privately held. Panama has a really strong Republic. Better than ours. Taxes are super low and are part of the VAT tax system, so you really don't know you're paying taxes. Everyday medical care is dirt cheap, and the cost of living is low. The issue with that is how much people are paid, which is also very low.

    Happy are the people of the Nordic nations — happier, in fact, than anyone else in the world. And the overall happiness of a country is almost identical to the happiness of its immigrants.

    Those are the main conclusions of the World Happiness Report 2018, released Wednesday. Finland is the happiest country in the world, it found, followed by Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden and Australia. Though in a different order, this is the same top 10 as last year, when Norway was No. 1 and Finland was fifth.

    Panama came in at #31.
