2020 ‘The Year Socialism Went Mainstream’: Nikki Haley

SocialismSocialism, despite its history of failure, has become mainstream this year and is being adopted by Democratic politicians as their go-to economic policy, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley warned Monday.

“2020 was the year socialism went mainstream,” Haley wrote on Twitter. “The dangerous ideology, which has failed everywhere it has been tried & ruined countless lives, is on its way to becoming the default economic policy of the Democratic Party.”

“This terrifying trend threatens the future of every American,” she added.

Haley made similar comments about socialism last week while voicing support for Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who is set to face off Democratic challenger Raphael Warnock in Georgia’s runoff elections.

“This is the Democratic Party that believes you cancel anyone that doesn’t agree with you,” she said. “They believe that you defund the police and stop taking care of those that serve us. They believe that socialism is the new way of life. And they think that you should put your lives and your healthcare in the hands of government.”

A two-term governor of South Carolina and outspoken defender of President Donald Trump’s handling of the economy and foreign policy, Haley was featured on the opening night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, where she cast former Vice President Joe Biden as being beholden to the radical progressives and their socialist agenda.

“Their vision for America is socialism. And we know that socialism has failed everywhere,” Haley said at that time. “They want to tell Americans how to live, and what to think. They want a government takeover of healthcare. They want to ban fracking and kill millions of jobs. They want massive tax hikes on working families.”

Haley’s remarks come as an emboldened progressive wing continues to tilt the Democratic Party more to the left. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, despite having campaigned as a moderate, eventually adopted an economic platform that features items absorbed from progressive Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), promising a $15-per-hour federal minimum wage, as well as a $4 trillion federal investment into healthcare, education, infrastructure, and clean energy.

Earlier this month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a young progressive firebrand, said in an interview with The Intercept that it’s time for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to step down from their leading positions to make room for a new leadership. She also talked about replacing moderate Rep. Richie Neal (D-Mass.) as head of the Ways and Means Committee.

“We are currently negotiating to get and work towards real material concessions for the left that can move things into place, to help build power for the next two years,” the Congresswoman said.

The Democratic party is out to totally destroy America. How horrible it is when Muslims can speak out but Christians are persecuted for their faith. Biden, Harris, Schumer and Pelosi are like the anti Christ

I couldn’t agree more with everone who believes that “we need to do something “
to defend our wonderful country against socialism. My question is, what can we do, and how do we do it?

This is 2021 and I’m so proud that our president gave the crooked Ga Sec of State hell. The networks have been obsessed with this
for the past 24 hours and I love it !!! Our national disgrace is that our president is the only fighter. All of the rest of the Repugnant Party
says their old “can’t we just get along” bs and vote for Nancy to run the country again. Again I say the Chi-coms defeated us without
firing a shot. They just bought out all US power brokers. We as a nation are all ready to sell out for the right price. That crime makes
our president as innocent as the driven snow.

We AMAC bloggers seem be in a very similar mindset. I have visited other news blog sites and the most ridiculous one
I have visited is NewsMax which is touted as a conservative site. The Newsmax blog is loaded with liberals who want to
argue and will use very vulgar language. Many of them will totally insult a conservative comment. I don’t know if any
of you have had a similar experience. It is totally unpoliced and maybe that’s what we want but there needs to be some
degree of basic respect.

Speaking as a progressive, I would be fine with Nikki Haley being the 2024 nominee. She’s a down-the-middle centrist. Her support for Trump has been purely opportunistic. She’s on par with Romney politically.

I didn’t serve one year on the front line defending freedom from the spread of communism, just to turn around and embrace it later in life. Anyone who voted democrat will find out soon enough what they signed up for. They are guilty twice. Once for themselves and once for taking me down too. And what is Pelosi doing? She should be serving 2 life terms in prison.

Patriotic Americans must absolutely face the fact that No. 1) The dirty democrats cheated and stole their election using massive fraud. No.2) if patriotic Americans force a fair, honest and truthful recount of votes, the democrats ‘will’ certainly lose. We’ve already seen the rioting, raping and looting done by these Leftist animals in cities up north…So..is everyone prepared for Socialism?? Open warfare?? Military intervention?? Not a pretty picture of America’s future. All thanks to the Dirty Socialistic Democrat party.

I believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and don’t believe in political correctness. As for socialism, if you think it’s so great then move to a socialist country and leave the United States of America alone. Democrats in this country only want power, they don’t have any concern for the real American citizens in this country. We as freedom loving people must fight for our republic and reject, at all costs the socialist agenda the democrats want to impose upon this great nation.

It is time for the American voter to rid our country of the Democratic Party, at least the radical left bunch, and I really think we would be better off without the majority of them. Also the wolves in sheep skins, the RINOs. Only by ridding ourselves of the radical fringe on the left can we get back to a government that is responsive to the American voter.

Speaking up for freedom and the Constitution is useless. THE SWAMP prevailed over President Trump because we didn’t speak up soon enough, or act soon enough.
the Left has a death grip on the Federal Government, including the FBI and the Justice Department. They will boil us frogs by simply warming the pot every day.
GOD BLESS the America we used to know.

Is Nikki Haley honest (she is, after all, a politician), or is she pandering for votes. It’s hard to trust anyone anymore. She says all the right things, but so do a few others, then they cave in to the money people.

Nikki Haley is just as big a threat as AOC. Haley’s past actions, as governor, have angered and alienated a very large portion of the southern population. We do not agree with her decision making policies or abilities for that matter. No future for Haley in the republican south.

To say that Socialism has failed everywhere it has tried is more of an opinion. You must cite examples and the destruction it has caused using facts. Facts are hard things to defeat.

Socialism is a scourge & many Americans have shed their blood n treasure to fight it…Seems we’ll need to do it again. We need to boycott firms which support groups such as Antifa, BLM, Democrats, Justice America, etc.Stamp it out at its core-SCHOOLS & media…stop supporting these & explore alternatives.

What many of the left do not understand that Democracy erodes from the inside. Look at all the great democracies in history, erosion of ethics, morals. and entitlement caused the decline. One of the main causes of erosion of the Roman Empire was the embracing of homosexuality, particularly in government. A recent article in INDUSTRY WEEK mentions “Morals Is More than ‘Just Common Sense’”
