In today’s political climate, short-term memory is all too-common.
Politicians with suspect track records can immediately re-brand themselves as firebrands after the spotlight is no longer on them and their handlers are able to re-invent their image behind the scenes.
Nikki Haley embodies this concept.
Many people forget that it was 4 years ago when she decided to remove a piece of South Carolina history.
On July 9, 2015 Haley decided to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds.
Haley’s decision to remove the flag was largely motivated by the Charleston Church massacre, where a gunman murdered nine people at a black church.
Once it was discovered that the murderer was linked to white supremacist organizations, Haley felt compelled to act.
Nevermind that many individuals fighting for the Confederacy were not slave owners, and were fighting to defend their homeland from Union forces. This flag serves as a symbol of Southern tradition of honoring ancestors who fought in the brutal American Civil War.
But for Haley, she had to something.
Her removal of the Confederate flag earned her a lot of praise from the political establishment.
She even went on Don Lemon’s show to discuss her decision to take down this piece of Southern history.
“I think the more important part is it should have never been there,” she opined. “These grounds are a place that everybody should feel a part of. What I realized now more than ever is people were driving by and felt hurt and pain. No one should feel pain.”
Her decision in 2015 has opened up a Pandora’s Box, however.
It would be a mistake to believe that they’re just going to stop with figures of the Confederacy.
They now have their sights set on the Founding Fathers. All in the name of fighting “racism”.
It would behoove conservatives to do their homework on who they end up supporting in high stakes elections.
Haley is already making moves to solidify herself as a presidential candidate for 2024 and beyond.
A Haley presidency would represent more of the same neoconservative global democratic crusading and perpetuation of PC culture that establishment Republicans have done for decades now.
In short, a Haley presidency would put America last.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
