One of the leading candidates to become the GOP nominee in 2024 is speaking out about socialism as the ideology became much more “mainstream” in 2020. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley turned to Twitter on Monday to warn American’s about the threat that socialism brings to their freedoms.
“2020 was the year socialism went mainstream. The dangerous ideology, which has failed everywhere it has been tried & ruined countless lives, is on its way to becoming the default economic policy of the Democratic Party. This terrifying trend threatens the future of every American.” Haley tweeted out on Monday.
In a follow-up tweet, Haley connected the rise of socialistic ideas to the incoming Biden administration, saying, “The left believes that government knows best. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that when govt dictates how the economy is run, Americans suffer. With the Biden admin set to take power, now is the time to renew the fight for capitalism.”
The tweet also contained a link to an article from “Stand for America,” a website and advocacy group Haley started.
In the article, Haley points to the rise of self-proclaimed Democratic socialist’s Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as signs that the Democratic party as a whole is moving closer to fully embracing the ideals of socialism. As Haley says, “The socialist left is more powerful than at any point in recent memory.”
Haley concludes her article by urging American’s to “renew the fight for capitalism” as Joe Biden is set to take power. She concludes the piece by saying, “The only way socialism wins is if we don’t show up. So let’s show up, stand up, and speak out, for the sake of America’s future.”
