In a rambling speech Nikki Haley the first Republican to challenge Donald Trump told voters at an Exeter, New Hampshire town hall Thursday saying that saying the Florida GOP governor’s Ron DeSantis’ “Don’t Say Gay” law doesn’t go far enough.
“You look at the fact that here they’re trying to talk about gender in schools. You know, there was all this talk about the Florida bill, the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill. Basically what it said was you shouldn’t be able to talk about gender before third grade,” Haley claimed. [This is false] I’m sorry, I don’t think that goes far enough. “When I was in school, you didn’t have sex-ed until seventh grade,” [Not the same issue]. “And even then your parents had to sign whether you could take the class “
Haley then went on to falsely claim that schools are teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT), and falsely described the college-level analytical framework designed to examine systemic racism.
Watch Haley’s remarks below. Her CRT and “Don’t Say Gay” remarks begin after the 18:00 minute mark.
With over 24 hours to think of a spin to put on yesterdays news that the united States voted against a United Nations resolution condemning the death penalty for having gay sex. Nikki Haley is denying that the vote had nothing to do gay genocide but instead U.S. voted against the resolution because of its support for the legal death penalty, adding that it had hoped for a “balanced and inclusive” resolution rather than one that said capital punishment is a human rights violation.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert had told reporters earlier in the day saying that the U.S. condemns executions for and the criminalization of homosexuality, and that suggestions to the contrary are “misleading.”
A statement from the U.S. at the time of the vote explaining the decision did not include any language about the protection of same-sex people, juveniles or minorities.
The U.S. has executed 18 people this year, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
An Amnesty International report said that the U.S. had the seventh most executions in the world last year, between Egypt and Somalia.
