The Left’s Vile Attack on Tim Scott

The South Carolina Republican spoke the truth, stood up for America, and exposed the intolerant Left.

Before we launch into the Left’s racist attack on South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, we should pay homage to the guy who made it all possible: Jack Dorsey.

Yep, Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter. Because that vile cesspool of his, that depraved netherworld of hot takes and haters, allowed the racist attacks to trend on its site for nearly 12 hours.

Twitter eventually blocked the phrase “Uncle Tim” from appearing in its “Trending” section, but the platform was noncommittal about whether its racist users will be banned until their tweets are deleted.

“I can confirm that we are blocking the phrase you referenced from appearing in Trends,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Washington Examiner yesterday. “We want Trends to promote healthy conversations on Twitter. This means that at times, we may not allow or may temporarily prevent content from appearing in Trends until more context is available. This includes Trends that violate The Twitter Rules.”

Ah, The Twitter Rules. The rules that censor Republican presidents, censor damaging news stories about Democrat presidential candidates, and allow the likes of LeBron James to dox and threaten with death the occasional cop.

Mollie Hemingway called the enablers out almost immediately: “Twitter is choosing to trend a racist attack from the left on Sen. Tim Scott, the black Republican senator from South Carolina,” she tweeted late Wednesday night.

Scott’s high crime, of course, was to challenge the Left’s narrative that America is an irredeemably racist nation. “Hear me clearly,” Scott said Wednesday night. “America is not a racist country. It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination, and it’s wrong to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.”

This didn’t sit well with radical leftists, who’d just heard Joe Biden soothingly tell them that “the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today is from white supremacist terrorism,” and that “we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life in many other ways.”

Scott no doubt also triggered Democrats with this inconvenient truth, which included a laudatory mention of their Bête Orange: “This administration inherited a tide that had already turned,” he said. “The coronavirus is on the run. Thanks to Operation Warp Speed and the Trump Administration, our country is flooded with safe and effective vaccines.”

Long-unhinged leftist Keith Olbermann, who’s been searching for a steady gig ever since his glory days at ESPN, fairly epitomized the woke, white, paternalist crowd: “Senator,” he tweeted, “anybody calls you the N-word is a friend of Trump’s. We progressives refer to you as a victim of Stockholm Syndrome.”

Wow, Keith. Project much?

Tim Scott does NOT represent black people,“ tweeted a white woman named Charmaine. "He knows he is not liked, admired or respected in the greater black community. Saying there is no racism in [America] is ignorant. It’s part of the Republican lie. [America’s] racist [sic] are just loving Uncle Tim.”

Iowa Law School professor Andy Grewal masterfully summed up these race-based attacks and others like them: “So, people are disproving Tim Scott’s ‘not a racist country’ claim by … being racist? This place is bonkers.”

Scott, responding to the tsunami of hate, said, “It was upsetting, certainly. What they want for us is for us to stay in a little, small corner and not go against the tide that they think is America. Their America and my America aren’t the same America, if, in fact, they think that discriminating is the fastest way to end discrimination.”

Slotting Tim Scott to respond to Joe Biden was a masterstroke. Not only is he an outstanding spokesman for conservative principles, but he also has a gift for ferreting out and exposing the vile, hateful, intolerant Left.

Score it Tim Scott 1, Racist Left 0.
