Sen. Rand Paul has declared his opposition to Nikki Haley in the 2024 presidential race, launching a website called NeverNikki.net to outline his criticisms.

He cited her views on internet registration and military intervention as reasons for his opposition.

“I’ve had a long relationship with Donald Trump and there is a lot to like there” and “I am also a big fan of a lot of the fiscal conservatism of Ron DeSantis,” Paul said. (Trending: Anthony Fauci Questioned About Evidence Behind COVID Restrictions)

“I think Vivek Ramaswamy has been an important voice. Also, I’ve listened to and met with the independent Bobby Kennedy,” he added.

“I’m not yet ready to make a decision, but I am ready to make a decision on someone who I cannot support, so I’m announcing this morning that I am never Nikki.”

“I don’t think any informed or knowledgeable libertarian or conservative should support Nikki Haley. I’ve seen her attitude towards our interventions overseas, I’ve seen her involvement in the military industrial complex,” Paul states in a video.

“But I’ve also seen her indicate that she thinks you should be registered to use the internet.”

“I think she fails to understand our republic was founded upon people like Ben Franklin, Sam Adams, Madison, John Jay and others who posted routinely — for fear of the government — they posted routinely anonymously,” Paul said.

“And I think her failure to really understand that or to think that you should register through the government somehow for the internet is something that should disqualify her in the minds of all libertarian-leaning conservatives.”

Paul emphasized the importance of anonymity in free speech, contrasting it with Haley’s stance on social media verification for national security.

Haley’s remarks about social media verification were met with criticism, with Paul and others expressing concerns about the implications for free speech.

“When I get into office, the first thing we have to do, social media accounts, social media companies, they have to show America their algorithms. Let us see why they’re pushing what they’re pushing. The second thing is every person on social media should be verified by their name,” Haley said.

“First of all, it’s a national security threat. When you do that, all of a sudden people have to stand by what they say. And it gets rid of the Russian bots, the Iranian bots and the Chinese bots. And then you’re going to get some civility when people know their name is next to what they say, and they know their pastor and their family members are going to see it,” she added.

“I don’t mind anonymous American people having free speech. What I don’t like is anonymous Russians and Chinese and Iranians having free speech,” Haley later clarified.
