Let's hope this happens sooner rather then later. The longer this goes the closer we get to a real shooting war. It's time to make them pay for their insane policies.

The only Conservative(s) is/are the single(s) citizen, holding a gun when their front door(s) is/are knocked in.

The Conservative party is a shell company raking in money and power for themselves, just like the other party.

The only person interested in your best interests is YOU.

Act accordingly.

They don't attempt to conserve anything. They call slowing down the degenerate slide as "victories" because of "great conversations." Meanwhile, there's no guarantee a woman can use the restroom without a man barging into the stall. Or your 6 year old kids won't hear about gay sex from a teacher. Fuck conservatives.

They're attempting to conserve trannies in the little girls room, or whatever dystopia the progressives are trying to progress beyond.

Conservatives have been conserving the gains of the progs for over a century now. G.K. Chesterton is credited with the following:
Quote:
The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition. Thus we have two great types the advanced person who rushes us into ruin, and the retrospective person who admires the ruins.


There is no good to be had from conservatism.

I work with a lot of Hispanics.

This stunt is opening some eyes. Many of them have memories of being bussed to Iowa, or their parents do.

Now they are seeing that the ones who paid for the buses, don't want them. Like or lump the Hispanics are a much tighter group than we are.

The break table has been interesting.

I think the blue elite are starting to have the traditional fear of the nobility. What do you do when the peasants/ slaves decide to revolt?

According to the law, nobody can be forced to do trade with anyone. I can't be forced to sell something to you, and an industry can't be forced to sell a good.

So what happens if, say, coal power plants in Idaho tell San Francisco to fuck off? Does California send national guard and state LEO to try and force the issue? Do the feds step in? Do industries end up nationalized? All of that sounds highly illegal, but we all know written law is TP to them.

What if I don't want to work at that power plant after all this? The law says I can't be coerced to work. But does anyone recall those doctors who were forced to remain at their current workplace by judge order? No fucks were given by .gov

I used to manufacture jet engine components for military hardware. Could I be called back against my will in time of war? The written law says no. The walking, talking law says probably.
My 300 Blackout says NOPE. I doubt they care about that though, because F-15s or something.

Are there nail bombs in my soffits? Probably not, but thats an assumption on anyone who's not me.
Who's to say what I may or may not be capable or willing to do?
Would they care about that?

See where this is going?

The "elites" adherence to progressivism is just the modern degenerate form of noblesse oblige.
This illegal shuffling is a brilliant political stunt, unfortunately I don't hold those in high esteem. Could not one of these douchebags figure out a way to effectively deport 50 back to Mexico on a flight? That would at least draw a chuckle from me.

Havent heard any coverage about how the 50 invaders from MV are being housed or if they are even still there or asking the base commander what are they going to do with them or request an interview with them. I assume they cant deny access completely. Like an attorney or advocate. What bullshit.

Well, I for one suggest that they must start construction of fair and affordable housing on Martha's Vineyard right away!. Apparently there is a lack of housing there that must be fairly addressed.

Also, Florida / Texas and any other state needs to DOUBLE DOWN on the flights.
ASAP.

What do you do? Force a faux vaxx on them and hope it weakens them while installing control mechanisms like vaxx passports. Oh wait that's not for illegals or not yet. Hey wait a minute, Darth Brandon just said the pandemic is over. So the covid emergency won't be renewed right??? Mandates???

I maintain we are NOT getting out of this without unfortunately massive amounts of violence.

You cannot vote your way out of this bullshit, whether you call it socialism, Marxism, or any other -ism. As our good friend @Tsherry consistently reminds us - they mean to kill you. Whether they kill your spirit and make you work as Whitey McWhite for tax revenue and under diversity, or outright kill you by ordering you to get jabs that will turn your blood to ketchup - it doesn't matter to them, as long as you are subservient to your "betters."

How long until the shit goes? No one really knows, eh? Tick tock, motherfuckers. Keep pushing.

They can't abide four dozen "lesser-thans", how would they handle a perpetual tourist wave of pick-ups and campers by the thousands rolling through to check out the scenery?

Most fascinating about this whole era is that the stupidity could be turned off like a light switch if those who disapproved of such things actually gave voice to their opinions and merely acted accordingly within the law.

@TG "Tell me how well it works out for you if even just 10 or 20% of that which you rely on in said blue cities and states doesn't show up."

Exactly. Things with fairly inelastic demand curves, like food, don't do well with supply shortfalls. Their diversity won't be shooting up people over cold fries. It'll be over the $200 fries. As always, the elites who manage to keep the diversity at arms length will do fine.

It couldn't happen. Road vehicle access to the island is by ferry, it's about a five mile trip. A pickup and camper cost about $200 each way. Ferry reservations are needed and are typically booked months in advance.

Two thoughts:

First, the Dems are importing voters to replace waning support from the Black community. What they haven't counted on is that many if not most of these people are fleeing socialist regimes and are inlikely to vote for more Democrat fuckery.

Second, the Democrats have this wild idea that THEY control the military and will win Civil War 2 when a hundred people with $5 Harbor Freight hacksaws can bring down the electrical grid and kill the dozen or more Democratic stronghold cities.

@evergreen
At least the tourists bring money thru. What do these "refugees" bring but dead weight?

I visited Burlington Vermont a couple weekends ago. Decent visit for a couple days, would never live there (nudists out in public? Really!?)

The holiday inn was $400 a night. Turns out half of it is a homeless shelter. For that kind of money I expected better, will not be visiting again for a while.

If I were a governor of a border state, I would pay for the infrastructure to move migrant from my border towns to the nearest blue state. Maybe the liberal wet dream, high speed rail? In AZ, I would simply train, truck, or bus anyone who wanted a ride straight to the California or New Mexico border, give them $25, drop them off, and wish them best of luck. I don't know why this isn't being done, honestly. The cost of the transportation would be much less than the cost of the burden on social services. If I were Texas, I might team up with Arkansas and Missouri to drop off in Illinois.

It can be done. We only lack the will to do it.

@Joancrawford "Meanwhile, when you object to this terrible behavior, you're called names, made fun of, and threatened with physical violence (F-15s, anyone?) if you have the temerity to complain. Seriously, how long would ANYONE stay in such a relationship? I left a similar arrangement almost 30 years ago and have: 1) never looked back, 2) never regretted leaving, 3) have never enjoyed freedom this much, ever."

The behavior you described coincides with the behavior of an addict who treats others, especially the ones who love and care, like a doormat.

Personally, I decided to stay in the relationship of now over 51 years. Of course, it has never been pleasant but I found my freedom and happiness in a much higher purpose of life. For me, it has been a challenging opportunity.

Alternatively, it would have been yet another gamble and lady luck rarely smiles at me; but not that there are no lucky souls among us!

In the past, individual states had taken "shots" at each other verbally, passively. This has all amounted to a "Cold Civil War".

The actual movement of migrants from one state to another is the first active, offensive, aggressive action that I can remember being taking. Don't underestimate how much these blue states/areas were taken by surprise and the extent to which this has injured their egos.

My question is; how will the blue states/areas respond and escalate?

I'm almost to the point where I want to ask my left leaning friends and relatives, "What will you do when they come to your door and tell you that you have X hours to leave?"

Those "economic tourists" didn't even get to stay on Martha's Vineyard for an entire day, for all the posturing and "gosh we helped them better".

The biggest take I saw, over the weekend, was apparently most of the "help" is "brought in from Brazil" and "takes up most of the open rental during the time the rich want to live there".

I'd say this is the "popcorn and TV time" but at some point it'll get ugly.

Ahh, but your charge is subsidizing the homeless that live there! Gotta make it back somehow. I know the gov is paying for the rooms, but probably not the damage and destruction they cause to the property.

I love your examples, Karl. The idea of "Let them get what they say they want, and let them get it HARD."

I hope some people in high places in productive states like Texas, Kansas and Wyoming are reading this site and see your suggestions.

I hope there are more plane loads planned. It obviously gets their attention. The press is all over this, though in a negative way towards Florida gov. Desantis and Texas put the problem in the public debate, where it is needed all along. Let's see if it gets under the rug and start to stink in the open air. Keep the busloads and plane loads going north until the fed gov is forced to act.
