These things are all inhumane stunts. I've said before several times that I do not favor going to people's private houses and stirring up trouble right there outside their house. That goes for Kavanaugh and the other shitty SCOTUS justices who repealed Roe, and it goes for this, too.

I thought the GOP was against human trafficking...
No, no, these aren't humans. They are -illegals-. There's a difference.
Actually, my comment isn't even correct. These weren't even illegal immigrants. They were asylum seekers who arrived at our border and then (LEGALLY) applied for asylum and were waiting to be processed. Oof. Horrific.

The fact that the people who do this would also claim to have good Christian morals and values shows what complete bullshit that all is. Brown and black people, to them, are at best a nuisance and at worst vermin to be exterminated.

It looks like the migrants were given this false pamphlet that promised them benefits if they came to Massachusetts. This may constitute a crime since you can't lie to people in an effort to trick them into being transported across state lines and abandoned.

They will just lie and deny they know anything about it like Trump taught them all to do.

This is playing out like all their stunts do. The coverage on FOX is a lot different than it is on any other mainstream media outlet. DeSantis a DB Abbot are scoring a lot of MAGA points for sticking it to the Dems. When it comes down to it isn’t that the only thing that really matters to them anymore? DeSantis clearly knows what buttons to push in Magaland.

Sending migrants to “Dem run cities” is portrayed as giving them a taste of what it’s like to live on the border. Dem run cities is a constant theme on FOX. FOX headline- “Man in Dem run city kills mother of three.” They show a picture of a black man. “Illegal alien in kills old lady in Dem city.” Show picture of Hispanic man. What is the purpose of this? I think we all know.

They want their viewers to constantly be some combination of angry and afraid. It's been effective.

The cruelty is the point. Republican governors did this, Fox (Republican media) ate it up, Republican voters loved it. The vast majority of Republicans are okay with this sort of cruelty, there's no two ways about it.

“That’s the hypocritical thing, is that DeSantis and Abbott and other politicians are constantly beating up on places like Cuba and Venezuela because they claim the leaders are so repressive and make the countries dangerous for the people, and yet when the people try to flee, they treat them like shit. And they use them as pawns in these stunts,” Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) told The Hill.

“This is really sadistic behavior. They’re lying. They’re deceiving these people and luring them onto planes and buses with promises of jobs and clothing and shelter,” Castro said. “And then they’re abandoning them, sometimes in remote places like Martha’s Vineyard.”

The GOP obviously doesn’t give a shit what happens to them. They only care about owning the Libs somehow.
