As the mass exodus of citizens and businesses fleeing Blue areas continues, Red states across the nation are bracing for a massive influx of new people who are seeking to escape the leftist policies that democrats have used to make big cities across the United States practically unlivable. Thanks to the jaw-dropping spike in crime and authoritarian public health measures, among other arbitrary nonsense and ‘big government’ interference, millions have fled leftist-controlled areas in favor of the freer, red areas.
And the mass migration is only intensifying. Californians above all others, however, are packing their bags en masse and fleeing the state for redder pastures.
Two of the most popular destinations for these ex-Californians are the conservative strongholds of Florida and Texas. The two states have each seen hundreds of thousands of newcomers over the past year and a half, which has some people in those states rightfully concerned about what follows – including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
After all, everything that leftists get involved with turns to crap, as has been proven repeatedly.
At an event on Monday, DeSantis blasted California cities, like San Francisco, for being complete “dumpster fires” and pointed to cities like Austin, Texas, which has become increasingly blue, as an example of what happens when Californians invade and import their destructive liberal policies.
“There is cause for concern. Texas would have all these companies moved from California over the years. So you’d have companies move from San Francisco to Austin, and they’d bring hundreds of employees with them. And those employees would vote the exact same way they voted that turned San Francisco into the dumpster fire that it is.”
According to DeSantis, Democrats – especially California Democrats – haven’t proved that they are able to connect the dots between the leftist policies they vote for and the destruction that is left in their wake once they are implemented. Even though Californians are fleeing the hollowed-out shell that was formerly known as the Golden State, where liberals have gotten their way for decades – and they are choosing to relocate into a Red area – a large number of them will continue bending the knee at the altar of wokeism.
“It’s like the leftism, they will not draw the connection between their leftist ideology and the destruction that’s all around them,” DeSantis said. “It is a problem because I do think there’s a class of voters who would come to Florida, and they would continue to vote the same way.”

In short, you libs don’t have to stay home, but you sure as hell shouldn’t come to Florida – or any other Red area for that matter. Surely there is room, and they are woke enough, in Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago or some such.
