Swarthmore Republicans Out Of The Closet
By Bob Small
In Swarthmore, we pretty much believe “everything is everything” and do not question most desires.
Drag Queen Children’s Story Hour?
Five story condo in the middle of town?
You may even start seeing “Joe Biden again, I guess” signs popping up.
But even “woke” Swarthmore can’t sleep on this.

This means that there are active Republicans living in Swarthmore. And we thought we had driven them all underground. Well, they have “come out”
Many see Nikki as an “antidote” to Trumpism and a reply to Bidenism.
Nikki Haley was born as Nimrata Nikki Randhawa, the daughter of (Sikh) Indian Immigrants whose business thrived in South Carolina. She became a Methodist at some point in her journey. She was the first female governor of South Carolina (2011-17). She then became the US Ambassador to the UN (2017-18) under then President Trump, with whom she sometimes agreed. In 1996, she married then US serviceman Michael Haley. At age 51, she is one of the youngest “declared” GOP Candidates.
Among her positions, she backs Congressional Term limits.
On abortion, she says “Let’s find national consensus”, a truly radical position.
This stirred up the SBA (Susan B. Anthony Pro Life America group)

Who knows what other candidate signs might pop up in my borough. Chris Christie? Venture Capitalist Vivek Ramaswamy? Miami Mayor Francis Suarez?
This isn’t the Swarthmore I thought I knew.
