‘Democrats don’t even believe in America’: Nikki Haley goes after liberals in Reagan Library speech

By Sebastian Hughes

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley went after Democrats for their lack of faith in America during a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Tuesday night.

“As my great predecessor, U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick famously said, in Reagan’s time the left was happy to ‘blame America first,’” Haley said. “Today’s Democrats don’t even believe in America.”

“Anger toward America is now the bedrock belief of the American left,” she added. “We’ve reached a place where the President and Vice President of the United States routinely accuse America of ‘systemic racism.’”

Haley reiterated her belief the U.S. is not a racist country and cited her own experience as “a brown girl in a black-and-white world.” She acknowledged America had its flaws but said Democrats were wrong to think those faults were “more profound than its strengths.”

“They deny the massive progress we’ve made, and they punish anyone who disagrees,” she said, arguing Democrats left behind the “unifying” message of former president Barack Obama and had “given up on America as a colorblind society.”

She quoted then-Senator Obama’s speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, where he stated “there is not a black America and a white America, a Latino America and an Asian America. There’s the United States of America.”

“Can you imagine any prominent Democrat making that statement today?” she asked. “I can’t.”

The path forward for Republicans, she said, is to capitalize on that unifying message, because “that message was our message first.”

Haley also criticized Biden’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, arguing it has made America less safe and that it “didn’t have to be this way.”

“Joe Biden pulled everything out with no conditions,” she said. “Our worst fears were realized within days. Everyone saw it coming, except the president, who promised it would never happen. Where I come from, that’s a fireable offense.”

The deal to withdraw from Afghanistan was negotiated by the Trump administration, though Haley had left her U.N. ambassador position by that point, and had an original deadline to leave of May 1, 2021, before the Biden administration pushed it to Sept. 11.

Though the Taliban broke conditions of the agreement, the Biden administration continued to pursue the withdrawal.

“America is in greater danger today than we were just three months ago,” Haley said. “Joe Biden thinks retreat is a sign of strength. He doesn’t even realize that his actions have told the world that America is too weak to stand up for itself.”

  1. Nikki Haley comment “Today’s Democrats do not believe in America” is an incredibly broad and unfortunate charaterization.

    I know and respect many many Repbulicans and Democrats and they al believe in America. Hell, having grown up in a family with a Republican father and Democrat mother I have seen those with significantly different political views deeply love and respect each other.

    We can do better than Ms. Haley did on this one occasion when speaking for our own beliefs.

  2. Bernies $3.5 TRILLION is an initial down payment for many decades of CLIMATE FIGHTING (tilting at wind mills)?
    Oh, no, no, no!

    The real purpose is to increase existing government programs, and to create new government programs to REMAKE the US into a CENTRALLY MANAGED, COMMAND/CONTROL entity, as Bernie has been striving for all his life.

    Dem/Progs will be running these existing and new programs, which will provide career opportunities for many “Dem/Progs-in-Government”.

    Dem/Progs will be spreading themselves throughout all departments of government, federal, state and local, including in the election centers that count the votes to achieve whatever outcome they like.
    The Republican Party will be toast.
    That is the true, Un-American swamp.
    Dislodging them, en masse, in nearly impossible, because they made laws to prohibit it.

    The government programs will be used to bribe the largely naive inhabitants of Dem/Prog-controlled cities to vote Dem/Prog forever.
    “Global warming fighting” has nothing to do with reducing the world temperature, because mankind’s very puny efforts would completely pale compared to the daily energy input from the sun.

    Vermont, in fact, all of New England, could completely disappear, and it would not make one iota of difference regarding the world climate or climate change.

    This is all about centralized command/control of all phases of our lives, while the “politically unfavored” are mandated to toil to meet the increasingly nutty GWSA-like mandates of Dem/Progs.

    About half the world population is exempt from those world-saving toils, by Paris agreements.

    Totally ineffective John Kerry flies his private jets worldwide, spewing CO2, while playing the role of climate TSAR.
    China folks laugh at him, and ignore him.

    Bernie refuses to fly, except first class, or on borrowed private planes to collect his lucrative speaking fees (aka bribes) to fatten his tax-free “Foundation”, as do the Clintons, who detest other folks, and call them trailer trash and despicables.

    Life is already great for ELITE Dem/Progs (with Obama in a $15 million compound), and is about to get even better

  3. Some people have a really good shtick.

    She let her true heart be known, why does she get any air in Vermont?
