U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R – South Carolina) is running for President of the United States. “Love, unconditional love, binds hearts together,” he declared Monday.

While Democrats not surprisingly oppose Scott on most issues, they refuse to acknowledge that his warm reception among Republicans shows that black Americans Have Overcome or, at least, Are Overcoming.

Citing “systemic racism,” The View’s Joy Behar said that Scott “doesn’t get it. Neither does Clarence [Thomas], and that’s why they’re Republicans.”

Duke University Professor Mark Anthony Neal stated ungrammatically via Twitter, “Tim Scott acting like he the only Black person in America who had a parent or grandparent who worked 16-hour days…at minimum wages.”

Self-proclaimed “Progressive, Attorney, Democrat” Ed Hull slimed Scott, via Twitter: “#UncleTimISAnUncleTom.”

Despite the Democrat Left’s racist trivialization of his achievements, Scott has labored for all his gains.

His single, working-class mother reared him and his brother in modest North Charleston. After floundering in high school, a local Chik-Fil-A manager mentored him. Scott focused and — after college — flourished in insurance.

Scott ran for Congress in 2010. If the white supremacists — whom Leftists see everywhere — wished to oppress Scott, this was their chance. Instead, Scott won 68% in a GOP primary runoff versus 32% for Paul Thurmond, the white son of the late Dixiecrat governor and U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond.

Then-Governor Nikki Haley, a Republican, appointed Scott to a vacant U.S. Senate seat. This made Scott the first black southern senator since 1881, when former slave Blanche Kelso Bruce (R – Mississippi) departed. This happened soon after white supremacists torpedoed the Republican policy of Reconstruction and launched the Democrat Party’s 83-year-long War on Blacks, AKA Jim Crow segregation.

In stunning contrast, the “pro-black” Democrat Party had 140 years to appoint or elect a black Southern senator. They did not accomplish this until Georgia’s Raphael Warnock won a January 2021 runoff — 11 years after Scott became senator.

Democrats want blacks to shut up and vote Democrat. They do not want blacks to think for themselves and see that Democrats trap black kids in schools that don’t teach.

Democrat policies impoverish blacks and lionize criminals who prey upon law-abiding blacks.

Democrats also have obliterated the U.S.-Mexico “border” and invited some 5.25 million illegal aliens to invade America. These low-cost laborers will compete against poor blacks for low-wage jobs.

Thank you, Democrats!

Democrats denounce as race traitors those blacks who condemn these outrages. This rhetoric often is vile.

MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross called Scott a “token,” a “tap dancer,” and someone whom “Harriet Tubman would have left behind.”


Today’s Republican presidential field features two black men, a woman of East Indian descent, and a man of similar background. And yet the GOP is the “Racist Party.”

The Democrat contenders are two white men and zero candidates of color. And yet theirs is the “Diversity Party.”

Please explain.

Tim Scott’s Democrat opponents are rotten people who stir racial division for fun and profit. They deserve maximum scorn and severe social sanction.

The good news is that, slowly but surely, black voters are seeing through the Democrats’ race-mongering, shattered promises, and bald-faced lies.

In 2020, President Donald J. Trump won 12% of black voters (versus 8% in 2016’s exit polls), specifically, 19% of black men and 9% of black women (up from 13% and 4%, respectively, in 2016).

Amazing: One in five black men voted to re-elect Trump.

Meanwhile, according to a recent ABC/Washington Post poll, Biden’s black approval has cratered from 82% in January 2021 to 52% today.

Worse for Democrats: That survey found that 27% of black voters definitely or probably would vote for Trump. If Trump wins even 20% of the black vote, he will be so re-elected!

So, rather than change their evil ways, Democrats demonize Tim Scott to put open-minded blacks back in their place.

“Shut up. Stop thinking. Do as we tell you.”

With Democrats like these, who needs white nationalists?
