To see what racism and race-baiting look like, look no further than today’s Democrat-Left. From relentless obsession with critical race theory, baseless claims of “systemic racism,” critical race theory brainwashing sessions, to delivery of health care based on skin color, Democrats and their ideological brethren see everything through black-and-white glasses.
A perfect case in point is the Democrat-Left response to the rebuttal by U.S. Sen. Tim Scott to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress Wednesday night.
The $6 Trillion Man spoke softly and carried a big shopping list. After Biden quietly left no spending stone unthrown, the South Carolina Republican delivered a warm, stirring and confident reply. He spoke about growing up poor, fatherless and Black. He also explained that he personally had experienced racism. But he added a key point. “Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country,” Scott declared, in contrast to Biden’s claims to the contrary.
Scott also chided Senate Democrats for filibustering his post-George Floyd police-reform legislation. Even after Scott gave Democrats the opportunity to offer extensive amendments, they refused even to consider his measure. Scott said: “My friends across the aisle seemed to want the issue more than they wanted a solution.”
The Republican-Right praised Scott’s speech, and I began saying “DeSantis-Scott 2024” to anyone who would listen.
But the Democrat-Left reacted not with a refutation of Scott on substance, but with bitter, bigoted attacks on him as a Black man who refuses to toe the Left’s line and dares to think for himself.
*The vicious slur “Uncle Tim” trended on Twitter for 12 hours before the normally hypersensitive censors at that Big Tech giant judged this inappropriate. Of course, it blamed a misfiring algorithm.
*“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,” said documentarian Tariq Nasheed, AKA Tariq Elite and K-Flex. “When Uncle Tim Scott says 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.”
*According to ABC talk-show host and “comedian” Jimmy Kimmel, Scott said America is not a racist country, “and then Tim went back to the sensory deprivation egg he calls home.”
Rather than mock Scott, the Democrat-Left might ask themselves why they never managed to elect a Black senator from the South between Reconstruction and Scott’s election on Nov. 4, 2014.
On June 22, 2010, Scott won 68% of the Republican primary-runoff vote for a Palmetto State U.S. House seat. Scott defeated Paul Thurmond, who scored just 32% of the vote. Never mind that Thurmond is White and also the son of South Carolina’s late, long-serving U.S. senator, the legendary Strom Thurmond.
Parenthetically, Strom Thurmond was the only prominent segregationist Southern Democrat who became a Republican. The Left loves to scream the filthy lie that the Democrats who oppressed Blacks under Jim Crow morphed into Republicans. While Thurmond certainly did this, the other Dixiecrats who tortured Blacks – including Alabama’s police-dog deploying Democrat National committeeman Bull Connor, Govs. Orval Faubus of Arkansas and George Wallace of Alabama, and filibustering U.S. Sens. Robert Byrd of West Virginia, J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, Albert Gore Sr. Of Tennessee, and many more – all lived, ruled and died as Democrats.
Rather than bring Americans together, Biden’s inflammatory rhetoric pits citizens against each other.
On Dec. 17, 2012, South Carolina’s Republican Gov, Nikki Haley, a woman of East Indian descent, appointed Congressman Tim Scott to fill the seat of Republican Jim DeMint,…
