Nikki Haley was nominated to the United Nations by Donald Trump, and every single Republican voted for her - only a few Democrats and independents did not. So I'm having some difficulty understanding that quote. Is Trump saying her appointment is a disgusting betrayal, when he is the one who appointed her? A little context would help. Are you sure Trump said that? If so, where, and why? Surely Trump knew that she had signed this bill before he appointed her.
When they voted on the bill, only three South Carolina senators opposed it, and support in the house was 94 to 20
. So it wasn't just Haley, it was a huge majority in both houses. I don't know the exact breakdown of votes, but this was generally seen as bipartisan.
Beyond that ... this looks like an emotional appeal to culture wars, without any explanation of why preserving the Confederate flag over the South Carolina Statehouse would be a good thing, especially in the aftermath of the Dylann Roof tragedy. The argument seems to be basically that we should hate the left, therefore we should keep the Confederate flag. And that's not a logical argument at all.
Haley's speech gives her reasons, and I think her reasons are very sound. If a significant percent of the population sees it primarily as a symbol of oppression and hate, and violent extremists adopt it as their own symbol, why do you think it is important for it to fly over the Statehouse?
Is it biblical? Is it Christlike? Is it loving? Is it true? How can I find out?
