There’s apparently still a wing of the Republican Party, even today, that considers George W. Bush to have been a great president and not a disaster at all.
This is the Nikki Haley wing of the party.
Well, now ol’ Nikki has this to say:
When I get into office, the first thing we have to do — social media accounts, social media companies, they have to show America their algorithms. Let us see why they’re pushing what they’re pushing. The second thing is every person on social media should be verified by their name. That’s first of all, it’s a national security threat. When you do that, all of a sudden people have to stand by what they say and it gets rid of the Russian bots, the Iranian bots and the Chinese bots. And then you’re going to get some civility when people know their name is next to what they say accountability, and they know their pastor and their family member is going to see it, it’s going to help our kids and it’s going to help our country.
Sorry, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay: you’re going to have to knock off this Publius stuff as you write the Federalist!
Imagine being so tone-deaf as to think that a winning message to Republican voters, who have watched federal agencies demonize, persecute and selectively prosecute them, is: the government needs to know your name and what you’re writing!
But imagine being so incorrigibly tone-deaf as to be a Republican voter and cheer for this.
Some people like to post anonymously because they’d like to speak their minds without losing their jobs at the hands of control-freak psychos who want dissident voices suppressed. Is that motivation for anonymity all right with the police, Nikki?
Naturally, she considers “global warming” to be “one of the threats” to the security of the United States, and insists that “everybody knows that Russia meddled in our elections.”
We can console ourselves that Haley is openly mocked in ways George W. Bush never was during the primaries.
