Martha’s Vineyard, once a serene retreat, is now in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. As the island grapples with an exodus of its working class and Native Wampanoag population due to soaring living costs, Vice President Kamala Harris chose this very location for a “”grassroots fundraiser.”” But here’s the catch – getting a moment with the VP at this event could set you back by a whopping $10,000.
The island’s transformation into a playground for the elite is evident. With real estate prices skyrocketing, the average home sale price reached an astonishing $2.1 million in the first half of 2023. This has made it nearly impossible for the average person to afford a home there.
Long-time resident and teacher, Jim Powell, lamented, “”Martha’s Vineyard has been socially engineered for the elite of the Democrat National Party.”” The island’s transformation is not just about real estate prices but also about the growing intolerance towards diverse opinions.
While the elites continue their extravagant gatherings, the real story remains the challenges faced by the island’s original inhabitants. The question remains: How long before Martha’s Vineyard loses its soul?
