Governor Nikki Haley...
exposes her ignorance.
Her STotU rebuttal was better than the other past T-GOP rebuttals but then WHOOPS! while being interviewed shortly after that, she let loose with this whooper:
Nikki Haley: America Has Never 'Passed Any Laws Based on Race or Religion'
Speaking about Donald Trump:
I don't think she intentionally lied, she's just grossly ignorant of American history, which is damning in itself. She's the governor of South Carolina, FFS! How could she not know about the Jim Crow laws? the Lynching laws of the south? Her clueless statement that America has never passed any laws or done anything based on race or religion confirms what many people already know -- that the present T-GOP lives in a bubble filled with half-truths, delusions, and outright lies, which they eagerly swallow as long as those half-truths, delusions, and lies conform to their version of American history.
Meanwhile, we suggest Governor Haley read some American history so that she won't make a fool of herself the next time she comments on race or anything else that the T-GOP receives as "truth."
JIM CROW LAWS
THE CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT
INTERNMENT OF JAPANESE AMERICANS
ANTI-ATHEIST LAWS IN AMERICAN STATES:
In the United States, seven state constitutions include religious tests that would effectively prevent atheists from holding public office, and in some cases being a juror/witness, though these have not generally been enforced since the early twentieth century:
Governor Haley doesn't know what her own state constitution says:
South Carolina: Article 17, Section 4 "No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution."
Governor Haley is seen as a rising star in the T-GOP, and she was courageous when she ordered the take-down of the Confederate flag in the state capital. But she is woefully uninformed on important American history (history that all my foreign friends know). If she's the best and brightest the T-GOP can offer, that only shows how wedded to ignorance the party is.
