Former director of national intelligence and U.S. ambassador to Germany, Ric Grenell, spoke with Newsmax over the weekend where he took an opportunity to slam the residents of Martha’s Vineyard concerning their treatment of migrants who were flown into the community by Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, calling them hypocrites as the National Guard was called in just 24 hours after the migrants arrived.
“They’ve been through a lot, and I’m Martha’s Vineyard strong, just like them,” Grenell said, cracking wise during his interview on Newsmax’s “The Count.” “I think the only way to deal with this is to make a joke of it because it’s a joke. I mean, it’s so blatant.”
“Friday, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, said he was deploying up to 125 National Guard members after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent a group of 50 migrants from Venezuela to the wealthy community, reported The National Review,” Newsmax reported.
“Our administration has been working across state government to develop a plan to ensure these individuals will have access to the services they need going forward, and Joint Base Cape Cod is well equipped to serve these needs,” the governor stated.
The National Guard troops were called in to meet the migrants at Joint Base Cape Cod after they were taken from St. Andrews Church located in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard, just 24 hours after they arrived on the island. Hey, nothing screams “we love migrants” like shipping them off just a day after they arrived, right? Wow. Grenell is right on the money. These people are the definition of “hypocrites.”

Baker went on to say that transporting the migrants to Cape Cod was considered necessary because the island community was “not equipped to provide sustainable accommodation and state officials developed a plan to deliver a comprehensive humanitarian response.”
Guess what? Neither are border towns and states. They have been overwhelmed by unbelievable numbers of illegal migrants crossing the border for well over a year now. And yet, the Biden administration has done nothing to fix the situation.
“We don’t have a media pushing back,” Grenell, a senior national security analyst for Newsmax, commented. “We don’t have a media embarrassing them.
“In the old days, if Martha’s Vineyard residents were trying to be all about diversity and tolerance and then rejected immigrants who came, I think that there would be a lot of New York Times-type, CNN types, and Washington Post-types there would be making fun of these people. Instead, they don’t. They get away with it, and that’s why it continues to happen.”
What it boils down to is the Biden administration is trying to use migrants like political pawns, dehumanizing them by making them nothing more than votes. They want these folks to cross over in massive numbers so that they can puff up Democratic Party voter rolls. That’s all they are. A means to obtain power.
