Senator [score]Tim Scott[/score] (R-SC) gets a lot of flak for being conservative and black at the same time.
The ‘tolerant’ left insists that the two are mutually exclusive. If you’re black, your only option is to be a Democrat. If you instead join the ‘dark side’ of the Republican Party, you’ll be called an ‘Uncle Tom’ and a ‘house negro.’ They’ll say that you’re a disgrace to your race.
That’s exactly what they’ve done to Tim Scott, not only because he’s a conservative Republican, but also because he voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. Here’s what he said from the floor of the Senate:
“I go on to read from folks who wanted to share their opinions about my endorsing Jeff Sessions. ‘You are a disgrace to the black race.’ Anthony Burnham says: ‘You are an Uncle Tom, Scott.’
‘How does a black man turn on his own?’
Anthony B says: ‘Sen. Tim Scott is not an Uncle Tom, he doesn’t have a shred of honor, he is a House Negro, like the one in [the film] Django [Unchained].’
He also writes…: ‘A black man who is racist against black people. Big Uncle Tom piece of fertilizer.’
Think for yourselves. ‘You’re a disgrace to your race.’
I left out all the ones that use the n-word. I felt like that would not be appropriate. You see, what I am surprised by is that the liberal left that speaks and desires for all of us to be tolerant do not want to be tolerant of anyone that disagrees with where they are coming from.
