For generations, the Left has been playing the race card against Republicans while themselves supporting the most vile racism against anybody who doesn’t support their views. This publication has consistently called the Left out for their racist actions. Some Republicans are starting to get with the program. Though we do rather wonder at their seeming surprise at this obvious epiphany.
Quote: “The Left’s demeaning of any African American who strays from leftist orthodoxy is one of the ugliest acceptable smears in our political discourse.” https://t.co/YhPtGNZFgY

FNC: “Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., responded Thursday to what he called the left’s ‘stunning’ personal assault against him following his rebuttal to President Biden’s address to Congress. Scott told ‘Fox & Friends’ it was shocking to hear intolerance coming from those who say they want to end discrimination, and that those attacking him were doubling down on the concept of liberal oppression.”
“Intolerance so often comes from the left with words like ‘Uncle Tim’ and the ‘n-word’ being used against me,” Scott said. “And last night what was trending in social media was ‘Uncle Tim,’ and they doubled down on this concept of liberal oppression. It is stunning in 2021 that those who speak about ending discrimination want to end it by more discrimination. The left has doubled down that they are going to, not attack my policies, but they’re literally attacking the color of my skin. Their America and my America aren’t the same America, if in fact they think that discriminating is the fastest way to end discrimination.”
“Racism and discrimination: it’s still real, but it is being pushed further and further into a smaller corner in our nation. That’s great news that we should celebrate. If you want to be an American, the door is wide open, the front door by the way, is wide open to come in and add value to who we are, not be part of destructive conversations that belittle individuals.”
At the Washington Post recently, their fact checker tried to catch Scott in a lie about his background. Try as they might, they conceded Scott was telling the truth. The question is, why target Scott?
“He, for some reason, thought that an African-American man born in 1921 would never have picked cotton, that the fact that his grandfather owned land meant that we were privileged. Why my mother grew up on the projects, in public housing, with all that privilege, I have no idea. But here’s what he was really trying to do: He was trying to discredit my story. He was trying to discredit my grandfather, and my mother, and myself for one reason: because it doesn’t fit the narrative that in America, it’s impossible for people who look like me to rise to this position.”
