South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley goes to FN Manufacturing in Columbia, SC as she celebrates manufacturing in the Palmetto state. Nikki Haley toured FN Manufacturing in the state capital of Columbia. She has made political hay over luring another gun producer, PTR Industries, from the less gun-friendly state of Connecticut in June.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is known for shooting from the hip. On Friday the Republican politician turned that idiom into a reality during a tour of a gun manufacturing plant, firing ‘quite a few’ guns on an indoor range, including a fully-automatic military machine gun.

Look out Arnold. There’s a new Governor Terminator in town.

‘It was a good time,’ she told reporters after putting holes in several paper targets. ‘It was a good stress reliever – and I did it in heels!’

Outrage After Dem Party Leader Insult Nikki Haley’s Indian Heritage … Says They’ll Send GOP Governor Nicki Haley “Back to Wherever the Hell She Came From” (Update: Harpootilan Defends Comment)

Talk about your double standards … Who knew the Democrat Chairman in South Carolina was a “birther”?

Republicans are outraged after South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootilan’s racist attack against Indian-American Governor Nicki Haley. The SC Democrat Party leader told supports at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center is Columbia, SC that they will send “Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.”  Really Mr.Harpootilan, just where exactly is that, Gov. Haley was born in the USA. NikkinHaley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Imagine that, these are the same people who call those who question Barack Obama’s birth certificate and where he was born. Talk about your double standards? Its perfectly ok for Democrats to make racist comments. Where is the MSM outrage? Oh that’s right, Nikki Haley is a Republican.

Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.

The state’s Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send ‘Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.’

Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.

Yahoo political reporter Chris Moody tweeted on Friday that Mr Harpootlian made the comment, in support of Democrat challenger Vince Sheheen, who has declared he will run for governor.

UPDATE I: Democratic South Carolina chair Harpootilan’s  defends Nikki Haley “racist” barb.

Please, had any such comment been made against Barack Obama or an individual of color who was a Democrat, everyone in the media, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be crying foul and the race card. Powerline reminds us of the past vicious comments that Harpootilan made against Nikki Haley and was allowed to get away with.

Harpootlian, a longtime Democratic figure who has a history of using harsh rhetoric, made the comments at the party’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner just moments before Vice-President Joe Biden took the stage.

Asked what he meant by comment, Harpootlian wrote in an email: “Lexington County.”

Before being elected governor in 2010, Haley lived in the suburban Columbia county and represented the area in the state House.

As to whether he thought the comment could be seen as touching on her race and parents’ immigrant status, Harpootlian responded: “No, she was born in Bamberg [South Carolina] and lived in Lexington. Anybody implying anything different is attempting to feign insult.”
