from his own mouth on what he is actually saying

Sitting alongside co-director Lynn Novick, Burns insisted that sending immigrants to one of the ritziest vacation spots in the US was actually “the abstraction of human life.”

“It’s basically saying that you can use a human life that is as valuable as yours or mine or Lynn’s and to put it in a position of becoming a political pawn in somebody’s authoritarian game,” he insisted.


“This is what’s so disturbing about DeSantis — to use human beings, to weaponize human beings for a political purpose,”

“It’s like when somebody disagrees with him in Florida — like the Walt Disney Company — he punishes them,” Burns continued.

“This is not the actions of a person participating in a democratic process in which there’s an exchange of ideas.

“This is about punishing political enemies, putting on shows, political shows, political theater. And in this case, this is with the lives of human beings.”

Drop in to see what's happening here, and yep, our sad little resident alarmist is still honing his craft.

If Ken Burns only sees this action as using 'human beings...for a political purpose', he's coming off like an idiot who's clueless about how the migrants to the southern border have been used 'for a political purpose' for decades.

Carry on though! I'm rooting for you on the goal of being the person who started every single thread on this page. You're close, & I think you can do it!:thumbup:

Stupid about AGW!!
You're right senator..but is that what happened here ??

1. They were picked up in a Texas town UNKNOWN to local immigration or officials...by officials from a different state they arrived in and told they were being flown to Boston to get papers and jobs

2. They were then flown to Florida and then South Carolina with no explanation and then to Martha's Vineyard

3. They never made it to Boston and they never got jobs or papers


Offering to fly someone...not an issue..... fraudulently tricking and lying to illegal aliens into being pawns in a political game and not delivering anything you had promised them...sounds like fraud to me

I would think that if these people were truly illegal immigrants, putting them on a plane and flying them around would land any normal person with too many felonies to count.

Yes. Plus, these are Venezuelan migrants seeking asylym. I thought taking people fleeing oppressive socialist regimes was supposed to be a conservative thing. I'll be surprised if that fact doesn't get more play in south Florida where fleeing socialist dictators kind made the whole place.

Reports Cuban radio stations in Miami are comparing him to Castro

OMG are you serious, Trump is claiming this was his idea and DeSantis stole it from him and that is the ONLY Conservative to speak out against this so far !!!???
I mean does it surprise you that he claimed it was his idea? I saw a clip from one of his rallies recently where he claimed to come up with the phrase "migrant caravan" when all that was going on...

Well Ron is entertaining, it would be more fun watching his antics for a few years than watching a guy slowly lose what little mind he has. Guess there is always the chance Joe gets us all melted down in a nuclear holocaust in the next year or two then we won't have to worry about it.

Have our politics really devolved this far.
