Democrats Discover Border Security – Rhode Island Governor Orders National Guard Checkpoints To Protect Against New Yorkers…

Apparently democrat governors are discovering that border security might be important after all…. at least when it comes to quarantining pesky undesirables.  Hypocrisy, thy name is:

(source)

Yes America, Democrat governors are now placing their national guard troops at the borders to question travelers about their origination… “papers please.”

[Rhode Island] – Governor Gina Raimondo announced. Starting immediately, anyone coming into the state from New York state will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days, the governor said.

“No matter how you come to Rhode Island – bus, car, train, plane – you are ordered to quarantine for 14 days,” Raimondo said. “In my judgement this is the most prudent form of action in light of the crisis.”

Members of the National Guard will be stationed at train and bus stations to gather the contact information of anyone coming in from New York. In addition, the Rhode Island State Police will station troopers at the state border to flag down vehicles with New York license plates. The information collected will be used only for contact tracing by the Rhode Island Department of Health, Raimondo said.

“This is different. This is unusual. This is radical,” Raimondo said. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.”  (read more)

Keeping tens-of-thousands of migrant travelers from central America and Mexico out of the United States is an abomination to the humanitarian interests of our nation.  However, allowing Americans to cross state borders during a national health emergency is apparently a bridge too far.

One of the under-appreciated benefits of this COVID-19 crisis, is exposing the hypocrisy of the limo-liberal elite.   Notice how quickly a Democrat can turn totalitarian? I digress….

Funny how it was only a few short months ago when Russia, Russia, Russia hype was declared to be influencing the national political conversation, while these same democrat governors were quoting the statue of Liberty.  Alas….

“Papers please comrade”…

        Garrison, yes. However, I actually thought Progressivism was a disguise for communism, but since both systems use a dictator, it doesn’t matter too much. The people under these systems suffer either way.

        Kind of like a choice between arsenic cake or cyanide cake. Both are poisons, and both are nasty. Progressivism is just fancy icing to cover the poisoned cake.

        But your first sentence makes a very good point. I keep hoping those other people will get tuned in to the revelations as they occur through all this.

          Progressive is usually a synonym for Liberal. More than a century ago there were “classical liberals” which were what we would call libertarians today. The socialists of that era called themselves Progressives. Then they hijacked the term liberal, and they became known as Liberals – probably to benefit their movement by co-opting the word “liberal” and with an intent at confusing and deceiving the masses. Recently the “Liberals” switched back to calling themselves “Progressives”, and now are brazen enough to call themselves “Democratic Socialists”. Their obfuscation scheme continued for more than a century. They finally “came out of the closet”, thanks to Bernie.

          Communism is socialism on steroids – where the state controls everything: production, distribution, confiscation and re-distribution of property.

          Fascism is a collaborative relationship between industry and government, with nationalization of it. The roots of that term derive from Mussolini’s Italy. Nazism is literally National Socialism; those words are embedded in the acronym N.A.Z.I.. Obviously there is little difference between the two.

                Having said that, with regard to comments about other state citizens, it sounds like a lot of stereotyping going on to me. But I’m on the west coast, so I don’t really understand the culture of the Eastern part of the nation.

                The other thing too is people all over our nation are scared and anxious. Like POTUS says, we’ve never been through anything like this before. It’s very very scary to some people. When people are scared and anxious, they do nutty things. IMO

    Inside they always were totalitarian. It is only when the right circumstances manifest that they “show their true colors” and the inner fascist appears for all to behold. Just like false teachers in the spiritual realm:

    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

    John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Good for them! Honestly the easiest way for the rest of the country to move on is to quarantine NYC. And probably the rest of NY. I’m in NY and I totally understand this thinking. People have to realize that it’s not “mean” or “racist” to close down a border to protect your people. On the other hand, I don’t know how many New Yorkers were clamoring to go to RI.

      It’s true that R.I. is a bit “out of the way” from NYC/NY since they don’t share a border. But it’s such a tiny state, maybe that makes them feel more insecure and self protective in some way.

      I do know several NY’ers who have family in both States. so visit frequently between the 2. for that reason. None who have “2nd homes” in R.I. tho.

        There are plenty of wealthy folks from NY who have second homes in Westerly, Narragansett, Newport/Middletown, and on Block Island. The police will be pulling over a lot of high end SUV’s….

    My sister and her husband live at the tip of Maine on the Canadian border. They would definitely agree with this. People are flooding their summer getaways. . Not saying these folks are particularly ever that welcome, but now its a real stigma.

    State against state. County against county. Neighbor against neighbor. poor against Rich. Shelter in place. Lockdowns. Show me your papers.

    And the crowd cheered. They were able to accomplish all of this in a matter of weeks based on unsubstantiated fears. The Patriot Act was given to us the same way. We welcomed and applauded it.

    Are you not entertained????

    Apparently, all governors were encouraged/advised to do this during the phone call with the Task Force & PDJT today. Abbott announced those flying from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New Orleans will self-quarantine in a designated location for 14 days.

    A Democrat policing a border between a fellow Democrat. This is too ironic! If open borders is good this shouldn’t be possible! There’s always viruses and disease.

    They were deaf to Americans living in communities along the Southern border who were being negatively impacted by illegal crossers. They saw these communities as buffer zones, absorbing the expense, disease, and crime. Now They are the buffer zone and they don’t like it.

  33. I don’t know what I’m more shocked about. The speed at which this panic overtook common sense. Or the speed at which we are turning on each other. And the fact that my fellow Treepers see nothing wrong with mocking and judging their fellow citizens.
    So when California becomes the next hotspot and my daughter and six month old granddaughter, while her husband who is in the military deploys, come back to their home state of AZ in May to stay with us for their safety, are you going to mock her also crossing state lines with California license plates on her car? Because she deserves who you think she voted for?

    Gina Raimondo tries the play the part of an enlightened, take-charge female governor, but in reality she’s just another hack who wants to occasionally get her name in the news.
    Most of the New Yorkers probably are headed for Newport or Block Island, where they pay hefty taxes for a Victorian summer home.
    Not for going to the compact urban sprawl of Cranston or Pawtucket, viruses might prefer.
    These out-of-staters will be waved through with a ‘have a nice day’ & a side of clam-cakes.

    Hi Gina!!!!

    I am a New Yorker whose parents and I SPENT $60 THOUSAND DOLLARS when I transferred to attend RISD in Providence many years ago. RISD keeps asking me to attend Homecoming EVERY YEAR as they ask for money EVERY MONTH.

    As a native NYer, I also lived in your state for quite a few years, contributing to the coffers your criminal cabal seems to have distributed…to your friends.

    Now that I think about it, it was not such a pleasure to meet you at my last reunion.

    GO SUCK ROCKS!

    Sincerely,

    A RISD GRADUATE

    No surprise that after decades of unchallenged abuse and nullification of the 10th Amendment, our governors choose to exercise one of the few powers granted to the Federal government – interste transit.

    It is all about central state power. At least their dry run virus-scare gave us a glimpse of how the the plan will be executed. Prepare accordingly
