People saw it as service, and sacrifice, and heritage

Trump’s first pick as ambassador to the UN (January 2017-January 2018), Nikki Haley, thinks Dylann Roof “hijacked” the Confederate flag.

Here is this guy that comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag [look of sorrow and anguish]. And had just hijacked everything that people thought of in – we don’t have hateful people in South Carolina, there’s always the small minority that’s always gonna be there, but you know people saw it as service, and sacrifice, and heritage, and – but once he did that there was no way to overcome it, and the national media came in in droves [in droves gesture], they wanted to define what happened, they wanted to make this about racism

Say what??? It was the media who made it about racism? It wasn’t the fact that Dylann Roof chose that church, and the fact that the victims were all black while Dylann Roof is so white he looks anemic, and the fact that he EXPLICITLY SAID THAT’S WHAT IT WAS ABOUT when he opened fire?
