African-American Tim Scott to Join Senate as a Republican

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 1, 2013

Tim ScottIn December South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint announced that he will resign from the US Senate to join a conservative think tank.  That state’s Republican governor, Nikki Haley, has since announced that she will replace DeMint with US Representative Tim Scott of Charleston.

The Scott announcement has got the Left’s Irish up.  Not only is Scott a Tea Party Republican, but he also happens to be African-American.  The Left has special disdain for any people of color or females who have conservative beliefs.  This is necessarily due to the Left’s undercurrent of racism and misogyny, but instead due to its fear of the conservative message people of color and women deliver.

Since the 1960s, the Left has been successful in creating the false narrative that racism is somehow connected with conservative politics.  In fact history has shown the opposite.  The Democratic Party was the political backbone of racism in the United States for generations.  Up until the Civil War it was the party of slave owners.  Party members since have founded the Ku Klux Klan and created the Jim Crow laws.  Up until the 1960s avid segregationists were powerbrokers within the Democratic Party.

Tim Scott will be the only current Senator of African-American descent and the first one from the South in over hundred years.  He will become only the seventh black senator ever, four of which will have been Republicans and three Democrats.  Also of interest, Haley, who appointed Scott is one of two descendants of Indian Americans elected governor, with the other being current Louisiana governor, Republican Bobby Jindal.

The Left’s response to the Scott appointment was predictable with some calling Scott a “token” and others “Uncle Tom”.  The NAACP attacked Scott’s “record of opposition to civil rights protection and advancing those real issues of concern of the … African-American community.”  The Left has once again shown itself to have fascist tendencies that do not allow for open thought or debate.
