Liberals Meltdown Conjures Cockamamie 'Human Trafficking' Accusations

The Democrats of America certainly don’t like it when their virtue-signaling shell is cracked by cold, hard facts, and the reaction that we’ve seen to the Martha’s Vineyard migrant story has exposed the left wholesale.

Conservative Governors of both Texas and Florida teamed up last week to send 50-or-so asylum seekers from the southern border of the US to Martha’s Vineyard – one of the most posh and liberal crannies of the country.  The reaction there, for the cameras, was kind and helpful, but the locals couldn’t help but express their true feelings when the limelight dimmed.

We can also tell just how caught the Democrats feel by the reactions we’ve seen in the mainstream media – which have ranged from frantic to neurotic to belligerent over the course of the last several days.

Democratic politicians and media figures on MSNBC have claimed that Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott’s decision to send migrants to major cities constitutes “human trafficking,” with some even calling on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute the Republican governors.

During a Sunday night panel on MSNBC’s “Mehdi Hasan Show,” The Nation reporter Elie Mystal claimed that DeSantis and Abbott had violated the federal statutes regarding kidnapping, and urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate.

“We need Merrick Garland once again to understand that and bring the full weight and power of the federal government down on these people,” he said.

So, when they crossed the border into Martha’s Vineyard, those who brought them there are a problem?  Well the surest way to neuter the “coyotes” at the southern border is to force migrants to enter through the safe, secure naturalization process, and that starts by shutting down the trade routes.

Then came the buzzword barrage:

On Friday, after boasting about the compassion of Martha’s Vineyard residents towards the Venezuelan migrants, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough called DeSantis’ move “political human trafficking” during a conversation with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Clinton quickly agreed, saying “some politicians” were exacerbating the issue of immigration to the level of “literally human trafficking.”

A day earlier, MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Miami Herald reporter David Ovalle about the incident in Martha’s Vineyard and about past instances of sending migrants from red states to blue states.

“Is there any conversation that’s being had through your reporting about whether or not this is a crime?” Reid asked. “Because this has been called trafficking. There is a lot of chatter now that what these governors, including Ron DeSantis, have done is to have trafficked these families.”

So the left will turn a blind eye to human traffickers operating up to and across our borders, who are notorious for all manner of unholy crimes on the way, but a charter plane to the northeast during “leaf season” is going to be a crime against humanity?
