Noem-RNC Speech

Noem calls newly elected Georgia Senators communists in speech


News Staff - January 9, 2021

PIERRE, S.D. — Just days after posting about how “words matter” on her official Twitter account after a pro-Trump mob violently broke into the U.S. Capitol, Governor Kristi Noem called newly elected Senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, both Democrats from Georgia, “communists” in her speech this week at the Republican National Committee according to a condensed copy of the speech published Friday by the Federalist.

“The idea that Georgia, of all places, could elect two communists to the United States Senate was ridiculous,” Noem said in her speech.

KELO-TV reports Noem’s speech also referred to indoctrination of the leftist agenda in schools with children from aged 5 to 22, said that the Republican Party was the only party that respects Americans as human beings and doesn’t divide people based on religion or roots.

Noem also described Ossoff as a “33-year-old with no accomplishments” and Warnock as “a smooth-talking preacher.”

Ossoff’s opponent, Republican David Perdue, and Warnock’s opponent, Republican Kelly Loeffler, both tried to tie Ossoff and Warnock to communism. Factcheck.org investigated and found accusations made by Perdue and Loeffler to be false.

The South Dakota Democratic Party calls the speech “divisive and dehumanizing.”

Pam Cole, South Dakota Democratic Party Executive Director, says “There’s no better example of her emulating President Trump’s rhetoric. She tweets a sham message to try to appear considerate, but in the next breath berates her own Republican Party for allowing 'communists' to be elected in Georgia. Kristi Noem is complicit in spreading Trump’s dangerous form of governing. Her play for a cabinet position, future Presidential run or whatever she’s chasing is all modeled after Trump. And that man just inspired an attack on Congress. She needs to stop the nonsense.”
