In a colloquy with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, historian Victor Davis Hanson called out “the bi-coastal elite that’s never subject to the consequences of their own ideology,” when it comes to open-borders immigration or other aspects of left-wing groupthink.
The senior fellow at the Hoover Institution was referring to the insincere, presumably self-loathing cohort often known as limousine liberals (or champagne socialists in the U.K.), i.e., those bubble-dwellers who use their wealth and political connections to insulate themselves from policies that they impose on everybody else. In other words, rules for thee, but not for me.
In expertly summing up the crux of the ongoing cognitive dissonance, Hanson insisted that the above-referenced, fundamentally inauthentic lifestyle is unsustainable and also that far-left academia needs to pitch in with something along the lines perhaps of Airbnb accommodations when it comes to providing services to illegal aliens.
In the discussion with Carlson on Tuesday evening in the video clip embedded above, Hanson opined that elitist, affluent Democrats are engaging in “psychological projection, so they know they’re guilty, that they live apartheid, segregated existences, and they don’t want to change it, but they think by performance art, virtue-signaling in the abstract, ‘I’m for diversity, I’m for open borders,’ then that squares the circle of their own privilege. And I think everybody is on to them.”

Hanson also pointed out that woke universities, which are currently on summer vacation, should put their money where their mouths are in the context of the surge of undocumented migrants that the Biden administration has allowed to pour into the country:
There [are] about four million dorms nationwide right now that are empty. And we hear all this virtue signaling from Stanford, Yale, Princeton. These are ideal places; they have open housing; you can bring in illegal immigrants. you can fly them in; they have medical schools. They could offer medical assistance. They have law schools; they can offer legal assistance. They have interns; they could help with immersion English programs. This would be the solution to the problem. The universities could step up and say ‘we want to reify our rhetoric with concrete action. We’ve got the facilities. Bring them in.’ I think it would be a wonderful, noble, and moral experience if our college presidents stepped up.
In response, Carlson quipped, “And let them stay. Let them repopulate the universities, turn over Cornell to MS-13, and make them students in the fall. Their endowments can pay for it. I couldn’t agree more, and I love that idea.”
In a form of role-playing earlier in the segment, Hanson elaborated on liberal hypocrisy.
“Anybody that’s not vaxxed in the military — out. Anybody in the federal workforce — out. Three million people come in untested, unvaxxed, no problem whatsoever,” he said. “Walls are ossified, they’re calcified, they don’t work, ‘but my estate, I gotta have a big wall in Malibu….we have to have a diverse school, but my kids are gonna be at a private academy, and I love diversity but only as an employer that hires cheap labor’…this is new, it’s nihilism…”
Hanson claimed that it appears (and various pollsters have noted a trend of this kind) that the Hispanic electorate is purportedly turning against the Democrats because of the destabilizing effects of mass immigration and crime and, if so, the Dems will abruptly and opportunistically reverse course.

“If they vote 50-50 for Republican or conservative candidates in the fall, believe me, you will hear the 1992, 1996, Democratic Convention rhetoric of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Clintons, on how we have to have legal-only immigration because they will not want to import people who, within a generation, are innately conservative,” Hanson contended.
Prof. Hanson began the conversation by asserting that the border “is not porous. It doesn’t exist. [The Democrats] blew it up. There is no such thing as federal immigration law.”
