Democrat South Carolina U.S. Senate candidate, state Rep. Krystle Matthews, is facing calls from her own party to drop out and resign after a video of her disparaging fellow South Carolinians leaked.

Fox News reports:

South Carolina state Rep. Krystle Matthews, running against incumbent Republican Sen. Tim Scott, was caught on tape speaking disparagingly of her constituents — specifically White constituents — in a series of remarks secretly recorded by activist group Project Veritas.

“You ought to know who you’re dealing with,” Matthews said during the taped conversation. “You’ve got to treat them like s—. That’s the only way they’ll respect you.”

In the leaked comments, Matthews additionally brags about keeping citizens in her jurisdiction “under her thumbs,” and not putting up with “White sh—.”

Matthews confirmed to The Associated Press that it was her voice on the tape but said the edited audio of a “tongue-in-cheek” exchange didn’t reflect the full picture, calling Project Veritas a “satirical MAGA-powered news outlet.”

“If any of our white counterparts had said the same thing with regards to blacks, the minority community, including myself, would be up in arms calling for that member’s immediate resignation,” Bamberg state Rep. Justin Bamberg said regarding the comments.

Project Veritas NEVER edits for content which has been shown repeatedly. If a comment is extremely long, they may play only a portion to fit time constraints when shown on TV.
If this comment was a “joke,” it just shows that Marxists think HATE is funny!

Only black politicians can get away with those type comments. If it would have been a white politician they would have been called a racist and the blacks wanting their head. Even though they only make up about 13% of the population they seem to think they are in control of this country. Their actions, along with the left wing democrats actions, are rapidly pushing this country closer and closer towards that second civil war that’s been talked about for years now. It’s going to get worse and worse before it finally explodes.
