There isn’t a more perfect example of the flaming hypocrisy of America’s political and cultural elite than the crazed reaction to the relocation of 50 illegal immigrants to swanky Martha’s Vineyard, one of the whitest – and apparently most racist – locations in the entire country and Tucker Carlson broke it down in an extended monologue on Friday’s edition of his popular Fox News show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Although it would have been hard to top the epic 19-minute-plus scorcher on Martha’s Vineyard from Thursday, the host truly outdid himself, peeling back the brazen hypocrisy of Democrats like layers of an onion as well as exposing the double standard that exists when it comes to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the genius responsible for triggering the entire political left.
Prior to the airing of the show, the migrants had already been deported from Martha’s Vineyard after the locals called in the military to deal with the unwanted, brown-skinned guests for whom there was plenty of shelter available on the island which, despite all of the virtue signaling of residents and their political representatives, fell far short of practicing what they preached.
Carlson began his scathing monologue – which would clock in at over 20 minutes long – by pointing out the obvious, that the rules are for the little people and are made to be broken by Democrats, as was made evident by their conduct during the COVID pandemic.
“If there’s one thing we have learned about the people who make the rules, it’s that they have no intention of following them, any of them, ever,” he said. “They command you to wear a mask as you jog alone in the park while they head to dinner barefaced at the French Laundry. That happened. They harangue you of the carbon footprint of your lawn mower as they fly to Aspen on their private jets. You see that every day. How many members of Congress who voted to expand the police powers of the IRS don’t pay their own taxes? More than a few.”
“How many politicians who fervently support gun control have armed bodyguards that you pay for? Well, let’s see. Every single one. We could go on and on and on. Whatever they’re demanding that you do this week, you can be dead certain they are not doing it themselves. Everyone notices this. It enrages people, but it’s often misinterpreted. People say this is hypocrisy, but it’s not. It’s privilege,” he said.
“When Nancy Pelosi walks into her hair appointment without a mask at the height of the COVID lockdowns, it’s not because she forgot to bring a mask. No. She knows exactly what she’s doing. Nancy Pelosi is affirming her position in the social order. Nancy Pelosi is in charge. You are not,” Carlson pointed out. “Nancy Pelosi can do whatever she cares to do. You can’t. That’s the message she’s sending. Another word for this is a caste system, which is increasingly what we have in the United States. Caste systems are common in poor countries, the countries from which most of our immigrants come, but it’s the opposite of the traditional American system, which was imperfect egalitarianism.”
“In the old America, every citizen was considered equal under the law as well as in the eyes of God. Everybody had to follow the same rules because nobody underneath it all was more important than anyone else. We were all citizens. Citizens is a term you rarely hear anymore. Citizenship implies inherent rights, rights that politicians cannot under any circumstances take from you because they did not bestow them in the first place,” Carlson continued.
“You were born with them, but the people running our country no longer acknowledge this. They do not believe in inherent rights, nor do they believe in equality. You may remember how hysterical they became a couple of years ago when a few old-fashioned souls dared to say that all lives matter, which they certainly do. The people in charge hated that. They don’t think that all lives matter. In their view, some animals are more equal than others,” Carlson said, a reference to George Orwell’s classic novel on communism, Animal Farm.
“It’s hard to think of a news story in recent memory that illustrates this phenomenon as clearly as what is happening on Martha’s Vineyard,” Carlson said. “Two nights ago, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida generously sent a planeload of 50 illegal aliens from Venezuela to the Vineyard, which is a small, famously affluent island off the coast of Massachusetts. Martha’s Vineyard has everything you could ever want in the world except racial diversity.”
“The island is whiter than a Swedish bluegrass festival and DeSantis was trying to help,” he said, pointing out the island of privilege’s demographics.
“When government officials send you the blessed gift of diverse immigrants or refugees, you must accept. That’s the rule. It doesn’t matter how disruptive these new people are. It’s irrelevant how much they cost to support or how dramatically your quality of life may decline after they arrive. It doesn’t matter if the crime rate spikes, if your daughters are afraid to go outside, if the schools become unusable, if the hospitals fall apart. Doesn’t matter. You never complain. You take it like a man,” he stated.
“You don’t even mention it’s happening, even in private text messages to your friends. If you do, you’re a dangerous racist. You could wind up on a government list. That’s how America works,” he noted. “Everybody knows it because it’s been going on for a very long time. That’s the rule. But it turns out the people of Martha’s Vineyard aren’t just anyone. They’re the people who make the rules and in this case, they had no intention of following them, not even for a day.”
Carlson devoted time to eviscerating the wealthy white snobs over their reaction to the very special guests who received far less than ideal treatment during their very brief stay before they were sent packing, “There’s no kale or brie for the Venezuelans. No, instead, they got corn pops, Froot Loops, Rice Krispies with a side of paper plates and napkins. You got to wonder what the Venezuelans thought of that. “This seems like a nice place. The food is garbage. It’s less healthy than the crap we eat in Caracas, way worse. Why are they feeding us this stuff? Corn Pops. Really? Froot Loops?”
“The community seemed to be rallying behind them, but then, if there was any doubt in the morning, it was gone by afternoon because the message changed very quickly and the new message was, ‘Get the hell out of here, Brown people,” he said.
Carlson then played a series of clips from the likes of Martha’s Vineyard resident and former President Barack Obama, party-jumping Dem Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, cancer on the body politic Hillary Clinton, media talking heads and current President Joe Biden whose own relocation of illegals to Republican states was treated far differently than the explosion of outrage after several dozen were dropped off in the favorite vacation destination of the elite.

“It’s chaos in Martha’s Vineyard. So, why is only Ron DeSantis a human trafficker for doing this? It’s interesting. According to Gavin Newsom, he’s a kidnapper. Why didn’t anyone say that about Greg Abbott or Charlie Baker or Joe Biden for that matter? As we’ve said for more than a year, the Biden administration has flown illegal migrants throughout the country, often in the middle of the night,” Carlson said after the clips of liberal reactions.
He concluded with a clip of DeSantis reacting to the attacks against him.
“Our message to them is we are not a sanctuary state and it’s better to be able to go to a sanctuary jurisdiction and yes, we will help facilitate that transport for you to be able to go to greener pastures,” the Florida Republican said.
“Yeah, greener pastures. Aspen, next and by the way, every Ivy League college, all seven of them and then maybe you hit Wesleyan and Bowdoin and Stanford, the places that support above all other institutions in this country that support illegal immigration, that have more funding per capita than any other institution in the United States, are the richest places in America, out college campuses, liberal arts college, elite liberal arts colleges. How many migrants and refugees are they taking? Zero,” Carlson said.

The Fox News host closed by expressing hope that DeSantis would serve as an inspiration for other red state leaders.
“Let’s hope the next stop in this process is there and let’s also hope that the governors of sane states are watching how Democrats handled this. Within 24 hours of having immigrants dumped on their shores, the people of Martha’s Vineyard have the military move them out. Why is nobody else doing that? True. There’s no longer any reason that Republicans shouldn’t do that. This is the template. In Texas, Arizona, Florida, etc, they should do the exact same thing,” he said.
