Nikki Haley: Dylann Roof “hijacked” meaning of Confederate flag

 

Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley said that shooter Dylann Roof “hijacked” the meaning of the Confederate flag when, in 2017, he attacked a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, in a new interview with The Blaze.

What she’s saying: “People saw [the Confederate flag] as service, and sacrifice and heritage,” Haley said, adding, “the national media came in droves — they wanted to define what happened. They wanted to make this about racism. They wanted to make it about gun control. They wanted to make it about the death penalty.”
