Establishment darling Nikki Haley caught major flak last Friday after she told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that the Confederate flag symbolized “service, sacrifice and heritage.”
She argued that Dylann S. Roof — the perpetrator of this atrocity — “hijacked” the flag’s symbolism.
Roof posed with the flag in several photos of the Confederate flag before killing 9 parishioners at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in June 2015.
During the podcast interview, Haley paid homage to the people who Roof slaughtered, calling them “amazing people.”
Nevertheless, the Left pounced on this interview and decided to use part of her comment to attack her online.
“Here is this guy who comes out with his manifesto, holding the Confederate flag and had just hijacked everything that people thought of,” she said on the podcast. “We don’t have hateful people in South Carolina. There’s always the small minority who are always going to be there, but people saw it as service, sacrifice and heritage. But once he did that, there was no way to overcome it.”
Immediately, her comments got people on social media riled up.
“Really, Nikki?!” Michael Steele, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, tweeted. He added that Roof “inherited” the meaning of the Confederate flag.
Really, Nikki?! The Confederate Flag represented “service, sacrifice and heritage”? To whom? The black people who were terrorized & lynched in its name? You said it should never have been there. Roof didn’t hijack the meaning of that flag, he inherited it. https://t.co/fbjGHgu8tD

J.A. Moore, a Democratic South Carolina state representative, tweeted that Haley’s “continued use of this tragedy for political reasons is disgusting.”
@KimpsonForSC – as you know, my sister was tragically murdered in the Mother Emanuel AME Church tragedy. Your leadership & friendship was extremely important to myself and my family. Let’s be clear @NikkiHaley continued use of this tragedy for political reasons is disgusting. https://t.co/a0YoVuNLZH

In any historical context, people would be ready to defend their homeland from invading forces. Countless Confederate soldiers were not slave owners and only answered the call of duty. Societies across the globe honor their fallen ancestors regardless of the political nature of the conflicts they were involved in. Too bad, the Left doesn’t get that.
Roof’s decision to commit a violent act was abhorrent. Such actions should be punished with a swift execution to send a message to would be terrorists across the political spectrum that murder will not be tolerated in America.
But in these cases, it should not entail a kowtowing to the politically correct Left, like the way Haley did right after the shooting by taking down the confederate flag from statehouse grounds in 2015. Even by doing this, the Left was not satisfied with her actions back then and they’re definitely not satisfied by her recent statements either. The Left is always eager to take advantage of these situations to advance their iconoclasm and utter disrespect for American traditions. Give them an inch and they will most certainly take the mile.
The next step in this PC journey is to remove monuments of the Founding Fathers now that the floodgates are wide open for all forms of iconoclasm.

Leading Doctor in Canada Tells Canadian to be Prepared to Stay Inside for Three Months
A leading doctor from Toronto says that residents will likely have to stay at home and only go outside “for the most essential of needs” for the next 12 weeks in light of the increasing number of Wuhan Virus cases that has put city on the ropes.
Dr. Eileen de Villa made this announcement on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 as she gave broad recommendations to help contain the spread of the Wuhan Virus.
De Villa is advising “in the strongest possible terms” that all Torontonians stay at home, with the exception of medical appointments, to go grocery shopping no more than once weekly or to walk their dogs or get exercise.
“This is not a favourable trajectory and as your medical officer of health I am deeply concerned,” de Villa continued. “I realize I depict a very stark picture here. A very stark picture but is one that is honest and true. Given this is our current situation it is my belief that we must absolutely implement stronger measures to avoid the type of results we are seeing in places like New York City.”
Toronto previously revoked permits for all major events and festivals until June 30.
At a news conference on April 1, 2020, Toronto Mayor John Tory declared that the number of Wuhan Virus cases in the city are going in “the wrong direction” and it is now “absolutely clear that this is going to be a very long battle.”
“I believe most people want this over as soon as possible and if given the choice they will do what it takes to end this situation at the earliest possible date which being candid likely does mean the 12 weeks referred to by Dr. de Villa,” he stated. “You want to go and visit and give a hug to your mother or grandmother as soon as you can, you want to go to a restaurant and sit on the patio and have a beer, you want to watch your kids once again able to play on a playground without restriction and you want to go to a Blue Jays game or hang out on the beach with friends but getting to those better days will depend on our collective response as a city. We have it in our control to make those better days come sooner.”
Canada shows why Americans should be proud of their civil liberties.
The type of lockdown Canada is pursuing only happens in the most leftist of states in America, but it is not the norm.
