Noem refers to newly-elected GA senators Ossoff and Warnock as “communists”

PIERRE, S.D. — In an article posted Friday to online forum “The Federalist,” South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem referred to newly-elected Georgia senators Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock as “communists.”

“Republicans got our butts kicked in Georgia on Tuesday. A 33-year-old with no accomplishments and a smooth-talking preacher wiped the floor with us. The idea that Georgia, of all places, could elect two communists to the United States Senate was ridiculous,” Noem wrote.

Her statement called Republicans to action in “this battle for freedom,” and criticized the Republican party as a whole for not following through on opportunities they had to deliver promises made to the American people. Noem posed the question, “What is it that Republicans stand for?” Her answer?

“We stand for the rule of law, not selective prosecution based on what your political views are. We stand for the right to defend yourself, your family, and your property. For your right to worship,  to actually practice and live your faith according to your conscience. We stand for your right to earn a living and to do business.”

Noem was active on the campaign trail for Georgia incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
