Phillip Bush brought it to my attention that Nikki Haley was getting some predictable criticism over on Facebook. You know, the usual stuff like:
I hope you never plan on running for any other political office as I, along with many others, will never vote for you again. You caved to liberal pressure and have disrespected this state’s heritage.
The Confederate Flag is the Heritage of South Carolina, never thought I would see you cave to radical pressure! Very sad day, death of the 10th Amendment and freedom of thought!
Well, we know our governor sets a lot of store by Facebook and relies on it for communicating with the public, and I’d hate for her to have second thoughts about the courageous stand she’s taken as a result of anything she reads there.
I don’t think she will — she seemed really determined the other day. And besides, most of the comments I saw are praising and encouraging her.
Well, let’s make that a tidal wave of love and support. if you haven’t gone over there and left an encouraging message, please do so now.
For my part, I wrote this to her, and I mean it:
God bless you, Nikki! And hang in there — don’t let the haters get you down. You’re going to hear from a lot of them, just as everyone who has the courage to act on this does. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help you as you lead us into a better future together, please don’t hesitate to ask.
I see some of y’all have gone over and done as I ask, for which I’m grateful.
Another request: If you run into any really interesting comments there — good or bad — come back and share them. I’ve skimmed what’s there, but just the surface…
