NEW YORK — Have you ever wondered how Democrat-Left hate speech sounds? For a fresh sample, just listen to the recent attacks on U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R – South Carolina).
Scott, a black man, delivered the official Republican rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s big-spending, America-bashing address to Congress on April 28. Speaking warmly and confidently, Scott discussed growing up poor in his mother’s single-parent home in North Charleston. Scott said that he had experienced racism, from mysterious traffic stops to being followed around by store owners as he examined their wares. However, Scott added stirringly: “Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country.”
The Democrat-Left was not amused.
–Gary O’Connor, chairman of the Lamar County Texas Democrat Party, said via Twitter: “I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles.” In short: black outside, white inside. O’Connor’s vile comment unleashed pounding waves of outrage that ultimately forced the white party hack’s resignation.
–“A major strategy of racists, is to incentivize one of it’s [sic] Black victims to act as the crash test dummy for white supremacy,” announced documentarian Tariq Nasheed, AKA Tariq Elite, and K-Flex. “When Uncle Tim Scottsays America is not a racist country, he is fully aware he is speaking in bad faith,” Nasheed continued via Twitter. “The purpose is to protect white supremacists.”
–The vicious slur “Uncle Tim” trended on Twitter for 12 hours before the Big Tech giant’s normally hypersensitive minders balked at this phrase. Naturally, they blamed the whole thing on an errant algorithm.
–MSNBC’s remarkably nasty Tiffany Cross said that Scott speaks only for “sleepy, slow-witted sufferers of Stockholm Syndrome who get elevated to prominence for repeating a false narrative about this country that makes conservative white people feel comfortable.” Presumably, this is Cross’ toasty opinion of black conservatives.
The Left-wing cable-TV anchor called Scott the “tap dancer” of Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell. She accused Scott of being “thirsty for white approval.” Cross trivialized Scott’s bills for police reform and against lynching by remarking, “there are two sides to every token.” She also compared Scott to Stephen Warren, Samuel L. Jackson’s treacherous house-slave character in Quentin Tarantino’s Academy Award-winning film Django Unchained.
Rather than refute anything that Tim Scott actually said, this deeply bitter woman cited, “a lesson I learned — don’t argue with people Harriet Tubman would have left behind.”
This broken sewer pipe flows downstream from the very same people who spent the Trump years screaming themselves hoarse with demands for unity and civil discourse. How distant those weepy pleas have become.
What the Democrat-Left conveniently forgets is that their party utterly failed for 156 years, where Republicans finally succeeded.
Tim Scott is the first black senator from the South since black Republicans Hiram Rhodes Revels and Blanche Bruce represented Mississippi in the 1870s, ending in 1881.
If the Democrat Party is so precious, why did it not elect or even appoint a black senator from the South until Raphael Warnock won in Georgia, on January 5…2021? Indeed, South Carolina Democrats never so much as nominated a black candidate for U.S. Senate until Alvin Greene opposed Scott’s predecessor, incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint, in 2010 — 145 years after the Civil War ended. Democrats are in no position to lecture Tim Scott and Republicans on race, given their chalk-white Southern senatorial nominees until 11 years ago and their cotton-white Southern senators until four months ago.
Shame on the holistically bankrupt Democrat Party!
Beyond the Palmetto State, only two blacks served in the U.S. Senate last year — New Jersey’s Cory Booker and California’s Kamala Harris. When Harris became vice-president, Governor Gavin Newsom (D – California) appointed Golden State Secretary of State Alex Padilla, a Hispanic man, to fill her seat. So much for Democrats advancing black power and opportunity.
For his part, Senator Scott has promoted school choice, legislated Opportunity Zones into the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (which President Donald J. Trump signed into law), and sponsored a police-reform bill in the wake of George Floyd’s police-perpetrated murder. But Democrats wanted the issue more than a solution. So, they deployed what they now denounce as the “racist filibuster” to keep Scott’s measure from even being considered.
To Democrats, Tim Scott is a mortal threat: a black man who thinks for himself. With grace and dignity, Scott shows black Americans that they need not eat the garbage that Democrats serve them and call dinner.
Rather than challenge a word that Tim Scott says, Democrats hurl mud and rocks at him — as one expects of dangerous children.
