DeSantis Builds Upon the Long History of Bigots Busing Unwanted Minorities North ctm magazine

60 years ago, Southern segregationists, enraged by the progress of the Civil Rights Movement, deceived some 200 Black Americans into boarding buses that would move them from below the Mason-Dixon line to Massachusetts. This week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis channeled their racism in pulling off a similar stunt – only this time with asylum seekers from Venezuela.

    I love DeSantis for this. Well played sir. The residents of Martha's Vineyard evicted them as soon a they could muster up a bus. Guess you can't be brown in the Vineyard unless you're carrying a rake.

    Of course DeSantis isn't deporting Cubans. They actually fall under the US definition of "refugee". They're here legally. The illegal aliens crossing the Mexican border do not fit the definition and are not here illegally. They are not protected by the US constitution and bill of rights. Get over yourself and stop misleading your viewers.

    What’s SO jacked up about the whole immigration thing is that SEVERAL times in recent years the GQP has had the WH & BOTH houses of Congress. WHY didn’t they fix this issue, hmm?! The ONLY answer anyone is going to hear is the crickets chirping.

  • Sturdy Thorpe on September 20, 2022

    When the people of Martha's Vineyard take care of as many illegal immigrants for as long the people of Del Rio Texas then sing praises. This is propaganda at it's best.

  • Tibore Goldberger on September 20, 2022

    MSNBC thank you for your insight and showing where the Democratic party stood understanding on immigration under antisemitism and racism of Adolf Hitler's policy Democrats1939, the State Department under Roosevelt did not allow a boat of Jews fleeing from the Nazis into the United States. When the passenger ship St. Louis approached the coast of Florida with nearly a thousand German Jews fleeing persecution by Hitler, Roosevelt did not respond to telegrams from passengers requesting asylum, and the State Department refused entry to the ship. Forced to return to Antwerp, many of the passengers eventually died in concentration camps.[12]

  • Chad Leach on September 20, 2022

    I'm surprised liberals arnt more thankful. Desantis is bringing diversity to a very white state.

    Southern hospitality at its finest…

  • john plemons on September 20, 2022

    If Desantis was just a little tougher he might be as good of a President as Trump. How about a Trump/Desantis ticket. I’ll bet that would get America on the right track in less than a month.

  • bluhturn on September 20, 2022

    You vote for the policies that cause this crisis and then whine whenever the policies effect you at all.

  • larkjd on September 20, 2022

    I only wish that the governor of New York had kidnapped Fidel desantis great grandparents and shipped them to Greenland, you know as a craven political stunt

  • Carol Maiocchi on September 20, 2022

    What a Richard! He has forgotten where his ancestors came from because they were NOT Native American. You'll be answering for that one, dude.

  • Kalim D on September 20, 2022

    The democrats and liberal media are so corrupt and crooked. Using race cards. Victimisation as their core themes to hide their hypocritical ideologies. The migrants were sent to one of THE most affluent towns in America. They were transported as if flying commercially and the liberals want to cover up that these migrants were in the country ILLEGALLY? The virtue signalling is deafening. Anything that does not agree with leftist beliefs is instantly branded racist. Xenophobic. Ya de Ya. The transportation of "50 migrants" is a "humanitarian crisis?. If only the masses knew how manipulated they are and how polarising and toxic radical ideology is.

  • Oliver Lloyd on September 20, 2022

    It would be nice if we could put DeSantis and his family on a bus to Venezuela with $20? Maybe a little barefoot reality would humble him.

  • K. Christensen on September 20, 2022

    Those black people were AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!
    It doesn't surprise some of us.

  • Michael Morrow on September 20, 2022

    Is MSNBC suggesting that affluent Democrats/ Leftists don't want migrants in their communities? If so, that would make affluent Democrats/ Leftists the bigots. One thing we must do to promote genuine social justice is to ensure that migrants, poor, working class and middle class US Citizens, are able to live in the best, most beautiful, safest parts of the USA, the places affluent Democrats/ Leftists live.

    End the practice of segregation in the USA, economic class segregation. We need lots of affordable housing everywhere affluent Democrats/ Leftists live. This way, all US Citizens and all migrants staying in the USA indefinitely will have the opportunity to live in the best, most beautiful, safest parts of the USA, the very places affluent Americans live. And yes, migrants should absolutely be sent to all parts of the USA where affluent Democrats/ Leftists live, especially where affluent Democrats/ Leftists live.

    Affluent Democrats/ Leftists really know how to live. I should know. I attended a NY Prep School with Limousine Liberals. That's partly why I get so burnt up when I hear Democrats discuss racist conspiracy theories, such as "White Privilege." I know for a fact that the overwhelming majority of White Americans don't enjoy the genuine privilege, the outright unearned and undeserved advantages, maintained by the family, friends and favored oligarchs of the Democratic Party Elite, not even close.

    Billionaires, folks running financial institutions and Fortune 500 companies, all manner of affluent, influential and powerful persons, want to influence the folks running the USA. They can't bribe US Politicians. But they can offer the family, friends and favored oligarchs of US Politicians access to prestigious and highly scarce resources and highly prized employment/ investment opportunities, resources and opportunities hard working and highly skilled poor, working class and middle class US Citizens would greatly benefit from, but have no realistic chance of obtaining.

    Hunter Biden was able to make millions of dollars off of being a consultant, without needing any professional training or related work experience in order to enter that field. Meanwhile, I'm a White guy. I have years of professional training in matters related to International Business Management and Consultation, including training from a founder and former CEO of a Fortune 500 Company. And I couldn't land so much as an unpaid internship in a related field.

    Hunter Biden didn't spend years of his life learning about corporate strategic planning, corporate organizational design, import/ export rules and regulations, accounting, finance, marketing, project management, quality assurance, negotiation, managing folks in a workplace, etc. Hunter Biden did meth and acted like a college freshman on the evening of orientation day. And yet, he obtained a position I would need five to fifteen years demonstrated work experience to obtain.

    And I wouldn't be given the opportunity to get that five to fifteen years work experience, in the first place. The advantage Hunter Biden has over me is what genuine unearned and undeserved privilege looks like. So yeah, there's surely a need for genuine social justice in the USA. Promoting anti White conspiracy theories, scapegoating, hate and discrimination, isn't the way to go about promoting actual social justice.

    One way to promote genuine social justice is to end segregation in the USA, economic class segregation. Affluent Democrats/ Leftists should stop promoting racist anti White conspiracy theories, scapegoating, hate and discrimination. Stop being segregationists, end economic class segregation. Build affordable housing everywhere affluent Democrats/ Leftists live. And invite migrants, poor, working class, middle class Americans to live within the best, most beautiful, safest parts of the USA, the places where affluent Democrats/ Leftists live.

  • TheMobileHomestead on September 20, 2022

    Stop pretending everything is simply about this stupid country or race … you all reported that CPAC hosted the dictator Victor Orban .. so did you forget that Putin and Orban weaponized migrants too and stuck them near Poland's Border so that Putin and Orban could say Poland and the EU were hypocrites for not taking more migrants in …. so how about treating Americans like grown-ups and say the GOP ,DeSantis ,Putin and Orban are in cahoots and are just modeling their behavior like European Dictators and Fascists do…

  • ZebeArt on September 20, 2022

    DeSantis is like Putin or Hitler. Putin fires people who criticize them. Hitler faked people out to pile them onto railroad cars. DeSantis is absolutely evil.

  • Dystopia1111 on September 20, 2022

    The Democrats have proposed a corrupt addict (Gillum) and an opportunistic party-flipper (Crist) as opponents against DeSantis – it's like you're not even trying anymore. Don't complain about DeSantis while offering up BS like that as a supposed alternative.
