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.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
