Black People are LIVING in TERROR Because of the ‘Black Lives Matter’- Nikki Haley Explains

Black Lives Matter takes yet another hit – this time from South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. The governors stance may come as a surprise to many after her swift action to remove the Confederate Flag after the Emmanuel church shootings, but even she sees the light on this sad little hate campaign:

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley skillfully attacked the “Black Lives Matter” movement by exposing how their insane rhetoric is actually hurting the black people they’re supposedly helping.

From the New York Times:

Gov. Nikki R. Haley of South Carolina, who won accolades for swiftly moving to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state capitol after the June massacre of nine black churchgoers, sharply criticized the Black Lives Matter movement on Wednesday.

Citing the unrest that followed the police-involved deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore, Ms. Haley, a Republican, said the swelling African-American movement protesting police misconduct was imperiling black lives and property.

“Most of the people who now live in terror because local police are too intimidated to do their jobs are black,” Ms. Haley said at a luncheon in Washington. “Black lives do matter, and they have been disgracefully jeopardized by the movement that has laid waste to Ferguson and Baltimore.”

Ms. Haley contrasted the rioting in those communities with what she described as the reconciliation that took place in South Carolina after the death in April of Walter Scott, who was shot in the back as he ran from a police officer, and the killing of nine members of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston.

She noted that Mr. Scott’s killing prompted South Carolina to mandate that police officers wear body cameras, the first state in the country to do so, and she recalled her effort to build support for taking down the Confederate flag.

“Some people think that you have to yell and scream in order to make a difference,” Ms. Haley said. “That’s not true. Often, the best thing we can do is turn down the volume level.”

It’s about time that the damaging mentality of this thought process is exposed. Thank you for your common sense, Governor Haley.
