Liberal elitists advance such pernicious policies because they have been isolated from their consequences. Inflation is less worrisome to those who have more than enough money. Likewise, they don’t mind if America degenerates into a violent hellhole, because within their exclusive communities, all is copacetic — or at least it has been.
As the ship goes down, those in the priciest cabins are getting wet too. Martha’s Vineyard — where the Moonbat Messiah Barack Obama himself has one of his several homes — is a case in point.

The island came up in the context of immigration when Ron DeSantis flew in 50 of the illegal aliens that Democrats have been importing by the millions, to give liberal elitists a taste of what they have been imposing on the rest of us. These illegals were kicked off the island within 48 hours, despite pious sanctuary policies.
However, mass immigration is still having a local effect:
Last Thursday, November 17, minutes after it opened for the day, a small bank in the island town of Vineyard Haven was invaded by three armed masked men. They threatened, subdued, and duct-taped the employees and proceeded to make off in a stolen car with an undetermined amount of cash — after brandishing semiautomatic handguns to intimidate the bank personnel.
Nothing like this crime has ever been seen on Martha’s Vineyard.
The times they are a-changing. As in California, normal people can no longer afford to live on Martha’s Vineyard. However, with some help from the welfare state, impoverished immigrants can live anywhere. This has been changing the demographics.
As we know, increased, unregulated, illegal migration from third-world countries is associated with rising crime rates, and now Martha’s Vineyard appears to be no exception. …
At press time, only one of the three reported bank robbers — allegedly the getaway driver, who is from Jamaica — has been arrested.
Martha’s Vineyard residents are living in fear. The Boston Globe is quoted:
The dramatic theft has left its mark on daily life. … “Obviously, people are on edge and upset this happened,” said Molly Coogan, the owner of the Bunch of Grapes bookstore. …
The bank theft impacted hundreds of students and school staff — buildings were locked down Thursday, and classes ended early that day…
Some residents have made changes to their daily routines in the days after Thursday’s theft at the Rockland Trust bank branch touched off a massive law enforcement response.
They had better get used to the new normal in fundamentally transformed America.
