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.
As the U.S. Elections Approaches, Thousands of Immigrants are Gaining U.S. Citizenship
America’s foreign voter base continues to grow ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
John Binder of Breitbart News noted that this is “adding a bloc of first-time foreign-born voters to the electorate.”
The last few months has seen delays in naturalization ceremonies thanks to the Wuhan virus pandemic. As of June, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency restarted ceremonies, with 2,000 immigrants being naturalized according to a report published by Camila DeChalus on June 10.
Other immigrants, who were expected to receive citizenship in 2020, are now pressing legal action against the federal government.
Prior to the crisis, USICS was naturalizing immigrants to the tune of 60,000 monthly.
Binder broke down the overall legal migration numbers:
Legal immigration levels — where 1.2 million immigrants secure Green Cards and nearly a million obtain naturalized citizenship annually — has driven up the nation’s foreign-born voting population to record levels.
The Breitbart writer highlighted another demographic trend that is taking place across America:
In February, Pew Research Center revealed that for the first time since 1970, one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country in the 2020 election. High legal immigration levels have also ensured that Hispanic voters will replace black Americans as the largest voting minority for the first time in U.S. history.
According to research from The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Axios, Democrats tend to benefit from an increased foreign-born population.
Binder gave an overview about what these foreign voter numbers look like:
The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein reveals nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average are won by Democrats. This means every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent has a 90 percent chance of electing Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.
Exit polling data indicated that Trump won 49 percent of native-born Americans’ votes, whereas Clinton won 45 percent of the vote. As far as foreign voters were concerned, Clinton trounced Trump by raking in 64 percent of the immigrant vote, while Trump got only 31 percent.
At the moment, the Binder points out that the “U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades due to existing legal immigration levels.”
Those 15 million new foreign-born voters include about eight million who will arrive through chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
The U.S. is undergoing a massive demographic transformation thanks to public policy.
In previous eras, migration waves would at least be contained by legislative pauses that allowed for assimilation.
But now, elites are content by keeping the illegal and legal migration gravy train going without any pause in sight.
Given immigrant voting trends, many freedoms such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy thanks to Democrats gaining a new voting bloc that will help them stay in power for a long time.
