Nikki Haley: Under Obama 'you just felt, people felt like they were being put in camps'

https://www.alternet.org/nikki-haley-obama-people-camps/

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley says only when Barack Obama became President did America “really” start to face racist “division,” that under the nation’s first Black president “everything became about race and gender, and that’s when “you just felt, people felt like they were being put in camps.”

Haley, a former Trump UN Ambassador and former South Carolina governor, has insisted America is not a racist country and has yet to put to bed her initial refusal to say slavery was the cause of the Civil War. In an hour-long interview on “The Breakfast Club,” with hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy, Haley continued to weave a whitewashed web of America’s history.

Charlamagne has questioned why more people don’t support Haley for President and said he will not be endorsing President Joe Biden, Politico has reported.

“There will be a first female president,” Haley said when asked about Vice President Kamala Harris. “It’s either going to be Kamala Harris, or it’s going to be me. And it should send a chill up everyone’s spine thinking about the fact that it would be Kamala Harris.”

I will probably die there. The rwnj have tried to move the U.S. to the right since the 1960s, and because of their don't-do-as I-do-do-as I-say values, the racism, the fascism, the oppression of anyone not white male, I had enough when the (formerly) supreme court put cheney-bush in the White House. As long as rwnj keep attacking true American values, I won't go back to the center. I'm just sorry it took me so long to wake up and smell the coffee.

Not coming FROM him.

The plain fact of the matter is rightwingers just could not abide having a mixed race Black president named Barack Hussein Obama.

Who was incredibly intelligent, articulate, charming, witty, and an unimpeachable servant of the American people.

Nikki Haley, like all Republicans when truth doesn't serve their purpose (it rarely does) employ PROJECTION -- accusing their opponents of their own bad behavior.

1. The old canard that it really was Barack Obama being President that forced a bunch
of mouth breathing dumb asses to become racist. It was the black guy’s fault. I have heard
it before 1st hand. “I never used the word n****r until Obama became President.”

2. Watch out. A scary black woman is going to be President because Joe will not
live out his term.

Good God in Butter but Nikki is really racist.

I always felt safe with 'no drama Obama' in the White House, because you knew he was going to think things through before acting. He was a good president, clearly a good husband and father, and generally a good, moral guy.

And then the white supremacist nut jobs had to freak out and give us Trump. The worst president this country ever had. Ever.

I didn't have many concerns about her at the time. It was a Southern State, and Haley was a typical Republican governor. Now, she's seems to have moved further to the right. It seems to me, she has enough to worry about running against the beast, Trump without bringing Obama into it.
