Senator Tim Scott recently shared a story about Dem attacks against him in a fundraising pitch and for that, he was attacked by an MSNBC analyst.

Senator Scott’s former spokesperson fired back at the analyst.

According to The Daily Wire:

Senator Tim Scott recently issued a fundraising pitch which stated, “After sharing my story of cotton to Congress in one lifetime, Democrats are viciously attacking me for being a proud black Republican.” MSNBC political analyst Rick Tyler sneered on Twitter, “Hey @TimScottSC, I just received a fundraising solicitation from you claiming that Dems have called you a ‘Black” traitor’. ‘A Token’. ‘Uncle Tom’. I’ve not seen anyone call you those vile things. Can you cite anyone who did?”

Scott was referring to the reaction to his speech at the Republican National Convention…

Instead, we must focus on the promise of the American journey. I know that journey well. My grandfather’s 99th birthday would have been tomorrow. Growing up, he had to cross the street if a white person was coming. He suffered the indignity of being forced out of school as a third grader to pick cotton, and he never learned to read or write. Yet he lived to see his grandson become the first African American to be elected to both the United States House and Senate. Our family went from cotton to Congress in one lifetime, and that’s why I believe the next American century can be better than the last. There are millions of families like mine across this nation full of potential seeking to live the American Dream, and I’m here tonight to tell you that supporting the Republican ticket gives you the best chance of making that dream a reality.

Scott’s former spokesman Ken Farnaso fired back at Tyler: “Hey, Rick, Ken here, @SenatorTimScott’s former spox. Here’s just 1 example via Twitter. Plenty more if you simply google search. The last thing we all need is a white guy telling a Black senator that he’s not been a victim of racism. P.S. Thanks for sharing his donation linkl!”

The Democrats seem to be all for freedom of thought so long as it is exactly what they think.


  1. Ken Farnasco’s response is perfect. “The Democrats seem to be all for Freedom of thought as long as it is exactly what they think” Spot on Ken.
