Republican 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley has been busy fending off attacks since announcing her White House bid last week.
In a testament to today’s politics, Haley’s age was cited by both CNN host Don Lemon and Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” despite being just 51. This coming from the same cabal that regularly runs interference for feeble, 80-year-old President Joe Biden.
But leave it to MSNBC to use the color of Haley’s skin against her — but in a way you might not expect. You see, according to the geniuses at the network, Haley is using “her brown skin to launder” white supremacy.
MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan set up the attack by pointing to reporting from a local paper saying that Haley “once declared herself white on her voter registration form.”
“Waj, your thoughts on this? I mean, you wrote a book about growing up brown in America,” Hasan said. “Will you be cheering on fellow brown American, fellow child of south Asian immigrants, Nikki Haley, and what she stands for?”
“To quote Zora Neale Hurston, not all skinfolk are kinfolk,” Daily Beast contributor Wajahat Ali said. “Nikki Haley instead is the Dinesh D’Souza of Candace Owens. She’s the alpha Karen with brown skin and for white supremacists and racists, she is a perfect Manchurian candidate. Instead of applauding her, I am just disgusted by people like Nikki Haley who know better.”
He went on to say Haley’s parents were the beneficiaries of the 1965 Nationality Act, before calling civil rights leaders in the 1960s the “original BLM protesters.”
“Her father came here because he was a professor, he taught at a historically black college in South Carolina,” Ali said. “That’s how she became the proud American that she is. And yet, what does she do? Like all these model minorities, which, by the way, is a strategy of white supremacy, to use Asians in particular as a cudgel against black folks — instead of pulling us up from the bootstraps and pulling others from the bootstraps, we’re thought to take your boot and put it on the neck of poor browns, immigrants, refugees and black folks, and that’s what she did in her ad.”
“So I see her and I feel sad,” he added. “The reason why I feel sad, because no matter what she does, it will never be enough. They will never love her.”
This racist attack was brought to you by NBCUniversal — a subsidiary of Comcast — which owns MSNBC.
