‘Imagine an Aspen airlift!’ Tucker has brilliant idea for boosting diversity in white Dem resort towns like Martha’s Vineyard

Tucker Carlson has an interesting idea.

Like many Americans, he came to the fascinating conclusion that although prominent members of the American Left advocate loudly and often for “open borders” and more diverse communities, and are adamantly opposed to halting the chaotic and socially disruptive flow of illegal migrants into the country, their own towns and neighborhoods and communities are, in fact, the least diverse in the nation.

And this observation led Carlson to propose a novel and urgent initiative for our time, a kind of new Berlin Airlift, but one in which illegal immigrants are bussed or flown to wealthy Democratic resort towns to enrich them with much-needed cultural and racial vibrancy.

“The bigger problem is the lack of diversity,” Carlson explained on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Immigrants are supposed to make America more diverse, but in practice they usually head to areas that are already pretty diverse. Brooklyn, for example, is only 35% white—pretty diverse.

“One place they almost never go is to towns where Democratic voters live. Strangely—and you can check this if you want, it’s on the internet—the party of diversity is led by people who strongly, overwhelmingly, prefer all white neighborhoods for themselves and their families. And that’s just weird: no diversity for the diversity promoters! No doubt it’s an oversight, they just haven’t thought of it. But we can fix it; we can do this.”

That’s when Carlson laid out his brilliant new plan.

“There are an awful lot of Democratic donors in Aspen, Colorado, for example. It’s an overwhelmingly blue place; it’s also nearly all white. What do we do about this? Well, how about an airlift? We’ve done this before—the Berlin Airlift, it was called. It lasted for 15 months from the summer of 1948 to the next fall. The U.S. air force delivered millions of tons of desperately needed supplies to the suffering people of west Germany.

“Nearly 80 years later, the Berlin Airlift is still considered one of the great humanitarian acts in our history. But there’s no reason we can’t repeat it—think big! Imagine an Aspen airlift. A national effort to rescue the people of Aspen from the suffocating prison of their own whiteness. Instead of food and coal and medicine, the Biden administration could deliver an even more essential life-saving commodity, and that’s diversity, into the cultural wasteland of Pitkin County, Colorado—which, if you can believe it, as of tonight is only one half of 1% black,” the Fox News host continued.

“Into that, Joe Biden could deposit Haitians and Somalis and Congolese, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of them—Guatemalans, Ghanaians, Algerians, the entire population of the Cape Verde Islands,” he added.

“We can do that—we’re America!”

Kevin Costner’s 160-acre estate in Aspen, Colorado, which is home to some of the wealthiest, and most reliably leftist, people in the country.

Carlson didn’t stop there, either. After all, Aspen isn’t the only Democratic town that needs an injection of “diversity.”

“Next stop on the equity train has got to be Martha’s Vineyard. It’s a natural: Joe Biden took 70% of the vote on that small Massachusetts island. Over the past four years, according to FEC data, 92% of all donations from its biggest town, Edgartown, Massachusetts, went to the Democratic Party. So you probably imagine that Edgartown is probably pretty diverse—I mean, the Obamas live on the island, right? No. In fact, we checked. At last count, Edgartown is 95.7% white. What century is this? As of 2019, only 3% of all people, all residents in Edgartown, were born outside of this country.

“So do the math: that’s 17 people. Total. That’s effectively zero diversity, which means zero strength. They are begging for more diversity. Why not send migrants there? In huge numbers. Let’s start with 300,000, and move up from there. As the island gets stronger, more.”

Quaint, historic Martha’s Vineyard. It’s overwhelmingly Democratic, but not very diverse.

It’s a fantastic idea, “diversity” is something wealthy Democrats prefer in the abstract, but certainly not in their backyard. If Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas started bussing the unending stream of migrants to these beautiful resort towns, the whole illegal immigration problem might come to a speedy resolution.
