"It’s not just Black Lives Matter, we’ve got lots of groups that want to yell and scream."
Gov. Nikki Haley gave some advice to the Black Lives Matter movement during an appearance before the National Press Club after being asked if she has a "quarrel" with the loud "tone" it often uses to attract attention.
"I don't think we need to yell," the South Carolina governor said. "But the other side is, I do think we need to listen. People yell when they don't feel heard. So we need to listen."
“In South Carolina it’s all about working together," she added. "We don’t think we get anything done by yelling. We get everything done by communicating. So I will tell you any group who wants to talk about violence, there’s no place in South Carolina for that. Any group that wants to talk about getting something done, we will listen to you and work for you and try to bring you together."
Haley then dished out some advice to the group about the effectiveness of simply being disruptive.
"It’s not just Black Lives Matter, we’ve got lots of groups that want to yell and scream. You can do that, but it’s not going to get you anywhere," she said.
Haley went on to say she "won't tolerate" those who would turn to violence as a solution. She further advised that activists within the Black Lives Matter movement who see individuals pushing for violence call them out and denounce it.
