South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was tapped to deliver the Republican response to the president’s State of the Union address. And judging from the vast majority of the media’s commentary today, Haley did a good job of criticizing . . . the Republican Party’s presidential frontrunners. All the focus today is on her line condemning the “the angriest and loudest voices” in the political arena.
I like Governor Haley, but I would ask her the same question I posed to Jeb Bush during a private meeting last year: Instead of condemning the anger many people feel, why aren’t YOU angry about the complete loss of control over our borders and the abuse of executive power? If you’re not angry about that, you’re part of the problem too.
So many of the world’s elites — from Europe to the United States — seem to believe that their first priority is to prevent their citizens from getting angry about what is happening to the West.
The first reaction of German authorities to mass sexual assaults was to suppress the news. The main reaction of much of the GOP establishment today is to get mad at anyone who points out the problems we are facing.
The real irony here is that the only time conservatives have prevailed recently, whether it was taking back the House under Newt Gingrich or the Tea Party election of 2010 or the 2014 elections, is when enough people have gotten angry, shown up at the polls and cleared out the dead wood!
