During a recent MSNBC talk, Wajahat Ali, a Muslim American of Pakistani descent, launched a series of racist remarks and attacks against Nikki Haley, a fellow American of immigrant descent.
Nikki Haley, former Governor of South Carolina and now Ambassador of the UN, has repeatedly come under fire from the liberal left. First, it was for being no longer “in her prime” by Don Lemon, to now being accused of being racist despite her Indian heritage.
“She’s the alpha-Karen with brown skin. And for white supremacists and racists, she’s the perfect Manchurian candidate.”
But he wasn’t finished there.
“Instead of applauding her, I am just disgusted by people like Nikki Haley who know better, whose parents were the beneficiaries … of the 1965 Immigration Nationality Act, which passed thanks to those original BLM protesters and the Civil Rights Act. Because she uses her brown skin as a weapon against poor black folks and poor brown folks, and she uses her brown skin to launder white supremacist talking points.”
I assume he forgot she’d been loved enough to be elected a Republican governor when he claimed she would never be loved by conservatives due to her brown color.
“Hold my beer and watch this, because I'm telling you where we are going to take America is going to change all of that. And they know how hard I'll work, and they know how tough I am. Bring it. We're ready.”
“One of the nastiest, most racist interviews in recent American history. Liberals think it is acceptable to launch racist attacks against conservatives such as @NikkiHaley It isn't, and reflects a hate-filled mindset.” – Nick Gardiner, Director, Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom.
