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.
MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”
In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.
The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”
The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”
Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.
The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”
Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”
MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.
Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
