South Carolina’s Republican Governor Nikki Haley recently seemed to urge her party to move Leftward socially and bragged of her successful efforts to remove the Confederate flag from a veterans memorial at the Statehouse. Haley, a reliable voice for the Big Business lobby in the Palmetto State, has won praise from pro-establishment figures in her party for embracing the demands of anti-Southern groups. Black Left-wing leader Jesse Jackson recently sang her praises for adopting his agenda. Her resumé was previously based mostly on her gender and non-European ancestry. She is now considered a “rising star” in the Republican Party and a potential vice presidential pick.
In a talk with Republican National Committee leaders she boasted of her anti-Southern record in taking down the Confederate flag and added “if we can do that in South Carolina, just think what we can do across our country.” She also urged her party to assume a softer, more caring image.
