This past weekend, former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson made the statement that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) should not be “defined as a Hispanic.” And recently, South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian said South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley should be “sent back to wherever the hell she came from.”
I recall making a statement that we should take the liberal philosophy of governance that is contrary to that of our constitutional republic “the hell out of America” — and the left-wing progressive media went crazy.
So how is it that there is no outrage when a state party chairman calls for the female governor to be sent back to wherever she came from? And, just so everyone knows, Governor Haley is from South Carolina and is a Clemson University graduate.
There is nothing more threatening to the white liberal elite establishment than a minority conservative, and they will go to any length to destroy that individual. What is worse, they will employ minority liberal gatekeepers to attack that individual as well to delegitimize that person in their own community.
The comments of Bill Richardson and Dick Harpootlian are disgusting, but we must understand — and recognize — the Alinskyite tactic. And in recognizing the tactic, those of us who are minority conservatives are emboldened to stand even stronger.
The next generation of Americans will need those of us who are so vehemently attacked to never stand down. We have the opportunity to encourage the future Clarence Thomas, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, and other leaders who will stand up for American principles.
