Tim Scott is the Republican senator for South Carolina and was a huge proponent in getting the new tax bill passed. Earlier in the week in a now-deleted tweet, a Huff Post blogger took a cheap (and racist) shot at the senator implying that he was only there as a black “prop….”
Tim Scott quickly shot back and pwned the guy, pointing out not only how inherently racist that comment was, but it addressed a glaring problem with the left, this “justified racism.” The idea that racism is “ok” as long as it’s directed at the enemy (AKA a conservative.) It’s much like how Antifa justifies fighting perceived fascism by actually being fascist.
For instance, 3 days after Tim Scott debunked why he was there and speaking about the bill, the divisive vitriol that is Occupy Democrats posted a short clip of the senator supposedly getting snubbed for a handshake (as you can tell from the pic posted above he did get one, the timing of the clip was knowingly and purposefully misleading)
….but it didn’t matter. The blindingly racist hate from self proclaimed liberals and democrats flooded the comment section of the post. I screen shot the worst of it…and before you get on me for “doxxing” these people, remember they’re the ones that posted this on a public open forum for all too see and it’s legally fair game.
Yea…”Trump’s” racism….says guy who called him a token….
That got 29 laughs? Really?
Yea….so “hostile” they appointed him to the vacant senatorial seat.
I deleted out their tagged friends just in case they want nothing to do with their buddy….
He’s a senator, it’s not like he’s washing dishes until he dies…
Oh….a watermelon joke. Original.
Actually, “back in your day” it would have been monumental to have an African American senator….and you would have shown him respect for the accomplishment.
689 Occupy Democrat followers just liked the comment calling him a “coon….” explain to me why that’s “ok?”
The fact that got 88 likes says a lot about Occupy Democrat followers…
Can’t even spell “Oreo” or “cookie…..”
Did a white guy just call him a race traitor? That makes even less sense…
The irony was too great, I had to respond to that one myself….
There were a few good voices of reason in the comments….which restored my faith in humanity….but I know pointing out the hypocrisy often falls on deaf ears. I also think I was the only one “liking” the positive comments….
Look, I know there are racist right wingers out there too….but they’re not hiding it or pretending it’s anything else and if they’re vocal about it they’ll get publicly shamed and ostracized…we’ve all seen people lose business or their jobs over it in the past.
I find this whole thing blindingly hypocritical because it’s done under the false guise of being “tolerant” and somehow morally superior than everyone else…..and worst of all, because it’s generally accepted and goes completely unpunished. Did that blogger lose his job at that liberal rag? No, and he’s not going to.
I don’t know why they don’t see their own hypocrisy but we can’t let them bully us into submission.
Keep doing what you’re doing senator #MAGA
