When libs try to be clever and fail: Nikki Haley edition

When liberals aren’t busy using epithets like “sell-out,” “prop,” or  worse to vilify people of color who register as Republicans, they find time to impute all sorts of racial nonsense to people of pallor who register as Republicans.

Take a charge leveled against American right wingers by an obscure Twitter user whose tweet is trending for some reason. The messenger is #Resistance member Barry Corindia, who describes himself in his Twitter bio as a “Husband, Stepfather, Grandfather. Riverside Hospital Health System Board Member”: an ordinary Joe, in other words.

His beef with conservatives is over their alleged refusal to welcome a woman of Indian descent into the fold unless she has been properly “sanitized.” Here’s his tweet:


Let’s ask Nikki Haley indeed. According to an interview she did in 2010 with NDTV, the name “Nikki” is not an affectation the budding politician took on to blend in. It is a nickname her family gave her when she was small: The name means “little one” in the language her parents spoke in India.

Neither is “Haley” an alias. It is her husband’s name, which she took on when they married.
