Nikki Haley Refuses to Say Slavery Was the Cause of the Civil War During a Town Meeting (Watch Video, Read Transcript)


Nikki Haley refused to say tonight that slavery was the cause of the Civil War.

It was during a town meeting. And now we know where she stands. This is absolutely frightening and disgusting. “What do you want me to say about slavery?” she asks the audience member who speaks to her. Then she says, “Next question.”

Haley’s answer for what caused the Civil War? “I mean, I think the cause of the Civil War was basically how government was going to run. The freedoms and what people couldn’t do.”

She is pathetic, and has revealed herself as an enemy of history and fact. And she’s kind of a racist. Sorry, folks. She is not the answer to the Republicans trying to replace Donald Trump as their nominee.

This is disgraceful. But Haley represents the south, and South Carolina, and this what they want to hear. They want the Confederate flag and the statues, the whole deal, like the Union never won and everyone remained on the plantation.

Look at this video. It’s blood boiling. The way she responds should raise alarms for every thinking person.

I can’t wait to hear the Fox and Fiends defend this in the morning.
