Democrats Prove Their Racism

On Monday, May 22, when U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) announced his entry into the GOP Presidential Primary, he declared, “Love, unconditional love, binds hearts together,” a message that was widely accepted by Republicans.

Unsurprisingly, Democrats, who oppose Scott on most issues, refuse to acknowledge that the warm reception of his announcement among fellow Republicans indicates that Black Americans are overcoming.

Joy Behar of The View suggested that Scott “doesn’t get it,” and neither did Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, claiming, “That’s why they’re Republicans.”

By “it,” Behar was referring to “systemic racism.”

Mark Anthony Neal, a professor at Duke University, suggested on Twitter that Scott’s behavior made it seem he was the “only Black person in America who had a parent or grandparent who worked 16-hour days… at minimum wage.”

Ed Hull, a self-proclaimed progressive Democratic lawyer, used the hashtag “#UncleTimISAnUncleTom” to blast Scott on Twitter.

Despite Democrats trivializing Scott’s achievements — which it doesn’t do to white Republican candidates — Scott worked for everything he accomplished, often breaking barriers.

Scott was not a privileged child. His single, working-class mother raised him and his brother in modest North Charleston.

After being shy in high school, he was mentored by a local Chick-fil-A manager.

Scott concentrated and, after college, thrived in the insurance industry.

After serving on the Charleston County Council and in the state legislature, Scott ran for Congress in 2010.

If white supremacists – seen everywhere on the left – wanted to suppress Scott, this was their chance.

Instead, Scott won the GOP primary with 68 percent, while Paul Thurmond, the white son of the late Dixiecrat governor and U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond, won 32 percent.

Then-Republican Governor Nikki Haley nominated Scott to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jim DeMint to lead the Heritage Foundation. That made Scott the first black senator from the South since 1881, when ex-slave Blanche Kelso Bruce (R-MI.) left.
