DONORS' CHOICE, Nikki Haley, doesn't mention slavery in describing causes of the Civil War
You think DeSantis would have gotten the answer wrong?
The donors sure can pick ‘em! Here is Nikki’s Kamala-level word salad on the Civil War:
“I think the cause of the Civil War was basically how government was going to run — the freedoms and what people could and couldn’t do.”
“I think it always comes down to the role of government and what the rights of the people are. And I will always stand by the fact that I think government was intended to secure the rights and freedoms of the people. It was never meant to be all things to all people.”
Neither side would’ve said the War was about “the role of government”! Haley has robotically uttered the perfect — and perfectly meaningless — Wall Street Journal gibberish about the size of government. I guess we can be grateful that she didn’t blame China.
Thanks, donors! (I’m now for a confiscatory wealth tax.)
