I remember a 10-year-old girl in school who came home one day proudly wearing a big button that declared “I’m for sharing.” But when she started munching on a candy bar, her dad asked her if he could have a bite. She said, “No. It’s mine!” And he said, “Well, then stop wearing a button that says ‘I’m for sharing’ when you really aren’t.”

The left’s reaction to Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis sending 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard and Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott sending many more to Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, D. C., has exposed the hypocrisy of those who advocate for open border policies.

U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., says the left is having a “collective political meltdown.” A reaction they did not have when illegal immigrants were being sent to various other states – often without prior notice.

As DeSantis declared: “In Florida, we take what is happening at the southern border seriously. We are not a sanctuary state, and we will gladly facilitate the transport of illegal immigrants to sanctuary jurisdictions.”

There is a sign in Martha’s Vineyard, which declares in part “We stand with IMMIGRANTS, with REFUGEES, with INDIGENOUS PEOPLES. … All Are Welcome Here, hate has no business here (emphasis in the original).

Is it not hypocrisy to claim to be a “sanctuary”” when you really don’t mean it? Many “compassionate” liberals on the island freaked out about the 50 illegals coming there.

DailyMail.com observed: “DeSantis accused critics of his move to fly migrants to Martha’s Vineyard of ‘virtue signaling,’ saying their concern for the welfare of the migrants was a ‘fraud.’ He said: ‘The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they go berserk, and they’re so upset that this is happening.’”

The illegal immigrants were deported within a day of arriving at Martha’s Vineyard. I heard one conservative on the radio mock, “They couldn’t have those ‘peasants’ come into the Vineyard.”

The Oxford Languages online dictionary defines “virtue signaling” this way: “The action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one’s good character or the moral correctness of one’s position on a particular issue.”

Those who are familiar with the Gospels know that Jesus Christ often had clashes with the religious leaders of His day, including the Pharisees. He often chewed them out because what they did was not sincere. It was just for show.

For example, Jesus said: “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.”

He applied this to giving, fasting and praying. For instance, here’s what He said about giving: “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.”

Jesus said this is how we should donate instead: “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”

The Pharisees were the virtue-signalers of their day. The Woke crowd are, in effect, the Pharisees of our day. They like to be regarded as the compassionate ones, without any of the inconvenience actual compassion requires.

D. James Kennedy once noted that “a hypocrite is someone who is not himself on Sunday.”

But, of course, hypocrisy is not reserved for church members. The Founders of America were concerned about hypocrisy.

Alexander Hamilton declared, “Til the millennium [when Jesus reigns on earth] comes, in spite of all our boasted light and purification, hypocrisy and treachery will continue to be the most successful commodities in the political market.”

In our day, we are seeing no end of hypocrisy. As one critic noted: “Over 4.9 million illegals entered the United States during Joe Biden’s first 18 months in office via the open southern US border. But send 50 illegal immigrants to an exclusive liberal enclave? That is a humanitarian crisis!”

At the very least, the ritzy hotspot for the left should tear down that “I’m for sharing”-type sign, welcoming all. It’s just their pharisaical way of saying they care, when they apparently don’t.

If Biden closed the border, this would not be happening. As DeSantis noted: “At the end of the day, this is a massive policy failure by the president. A massive and intentional policy that is causing a huge amount of damage all across the country, and it is all rooted in a failure to take care that the laws are faithfully executed and to fulfill his oath of office.”

Hypocrisy, thy name is woke.

Yes, We Need Your Help

I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…

When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.

Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.

The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.

We currently operate:

I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.

For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
