"I know they were scared at first but now they are in a much better place and they are going to be taken care of there like you have no idea. I know they arrived in another city but it is within Massachusetts. Believe me they are going to have a much better life than here or anywhere else," she said.

When trying to re-assure your co-conspirators that are having second thoughts, maybe avoid sounding like a parent telling their kid that Woofy went to a farm upstate?

"She had told me that the people who were going to Massachusetts, before I sent them, she had told me that they were going to receive them. They were going to be given shelter, a place to stay. They were going to help them with the language, and those who had children, they were going to study," he said.
In fact, nobody on Martha's Vineyard even knew they were coming, local officials said, noted CNN.



Reverse Freedom Rides

"She was going to have a job, and she was going to be able to support her family," one of Lela Mae's daughters, Betty Williams, remembered in a recent interview. Before coming north to Massachusetts, Lela Mae had been promised a good job, good housing and a presidential welcome.
But President Kennedy was not there to meet her. And there was no job or permanent housing waiting for her in Hyannis. Instead, Lela Mae and the others were unwitting pawns in a segregationist game.

They seem to be a lot less proud about that stunt than they were last week.

I wonder why.

At the very least, they have her phone number.  They will find this person.  What will she say when they do?  If she was working under someone's direction, she will throw them under the bus immediately.

I hope Ron freedom rides all the way to prison.

does he have any basis to sue for a violation of his human rights?  I know he isn't a citizen but, there has to be some valid recourse for the migrants themselves.

Some of the shiattiest people in the world, taking advantage of people and farking up lives, for...   what?  "Gotcha" points?  Try to convince themselves that everybody else is as shiatty as they are?  Jesus fark these are terrible people.  A round of applause for the poor soul they duped into doing this, and who is probably going to be miserable from here on unless he gets protection.  Can someone with some decency and influence please help him here?
 
2022-09-27 7:16:47 PM  
"Perla" and whoever was above her in this scheme (and we know who that was) should be burned at the stake in the public square. Live on camera for all to masturbate to.

Keep in mind that the person who said that likely views all poor migrants through a lens that suggests they're lesser human beings, hence the infantiliztion. Sadly, the fact she still might see them as human makes her a liberal member of her shiat caucus.

I hate that my first though was "Yeah, but if she's dead, we can still figure out who was paying the bill for her phone."  Instead of "Don't be ridiculous, nobody would have a person snuffed out over something like this."  Now that I've thought about both responses, I'm further saddened that I no longer find the notion of a political operative murdering this Perla person over a political stunt to be ridiculous.

How bad could the "immigration crisis" be if DeSantis had to pay someone in a city 700 miles and four states away from Texas to come up with a single bus load of them so he could run this stunt.

republican governors love to waste taxpayer money for political stunts.  Abbott wasted BILLIONS of dollars in economic activity by shutting down the US/Mexico border for a few weeks.  Lives don't matter to these people.

Abbot plans to frame that as "The Border Crisis cost our country billions of dollars in economic damage"  He may be campaigning on it already.

Indeed.  Next, we should move all of the other people with farked up lives to an island where they can't bother "Real Americans".

Don't talk to reporters lol. You know you've got a guilty mind when you don't want to have the press covering the "good thing" that you did.

Find "Perla" and charge her with human trafficking.

Do you go around kicking the spare change cups of homeless people thinking 'their day already sucks, this isn't going to be that much worse?'

You seem like you are saying it's cool to fark with people that are in bad situations, this is probably why nobody here likes you.

That in no way explains why a-holes go out of their way to make it even worse, nor does it excuse the behavior.

No, you're just an awful human being. Like him.

I hope they got the phone number and are now digging into the owner of it.

I'm surprised "Perla" hasn't had her cover blown yet, at least publicly.

fark you.   take the quote out of context and you agree with it too.

"if you're willing to board a bus to the other side of the country on whim with your life's possessions in your backpack, your life is probably already pretty farked up."

In no way did i condone the actions taken against these migrants nor suggest there was any justification for it.  But, i  hope you feel good about your assumption that let you attack someone on the internet due to YOUR lack of reading comprehension.

There are bad people who should expect to have more bad shiat happen to them.

2022-09-27 8:15:49 PM  
So "Perla" has basically established Mens Rea in this case. And was sending text messages which means probably traceable.

Perfect. I hope you get f*cked so hard that universities teach that sh*t in law school as an example of what never to do.

Gotcha points is all there is. They're trying to set up a lose/lose scenario for the Democrats where the migrants:

1. Get sent back (See? you don't want them either! It IS a crisis!)
Or
2. Stay there and settle in (Supporting illegal immigration and taking jerbs!)
With an optional
3. Dems complain about the new poors literally dumped on their doorstep(Racists!)

The problems of the migrants themselves are just never considered, or considered a bonus. See also, the entire family separations mandate.

To be fair to what, exactly? The idea that you can take someone in that condition and do this because they're probably no worse off than before? I have you farkied as "Hates moral turpitude-his words". So why the support?


They spent 500,000 transporting 48 people. Somehow. That can't possibly have been better than putting them in an apartment for 15 months apiece and providing avenues to citizenship and employment options.

That wasn't the intent, really. It was more a snarky call out of the exaggerated rhetoric in the Boobies. It isn't fair to point to this bus trip as the one thing that "farked up a life"; the life was already in pretty bad shape to start with. This is just another blow as far as the rider is concerned. Doesn't mean I condone it in any way, shape, or form. I find these busing stunts abhorrent, in fact.

Personally, I find the choice of phrases like "like you have no idea" and "believe me" pretty sad. It's as if this lady (and folks like her) have been getting years and years of a steady Trump-centric media diet and are now starting to parrot his habits of speech. Soon enough, the only way somebody can show they are part of the in-crowd is to do pucker-faced stream of conscious rants while playing the invisible accordion for emphasis.
