Senator Tim Scott and Racism

Responding to Joe Biden’s address to Congress, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) shined a very bright light on the hypocrisy and extreme agenda of Biden and the Democratic party, and because he is a black Christian, he was ridiculed as an “Uncle Tom.” While Senator Scott said that America is not a racist country, he also exposed a racist political party—the Democratic Party. In the spirit of Jim Crow laws instituted solely by the Democratic Party after the Civil War and continue to oppress black people even to this day, the Democrats and leftists who call everybody else racist, attacked Scott for offering a truthful counterbalance to the extremism of Biden and his buddies, and their use of race as a political weapon.

Scott exposed the multi-trillion dollar Democratic plans for just what they are: extreme leftist programs designed to turn this country to socialism. These programs are deceptively named The American Rescue Plan, The American Jobs Plan, The American Families Plan and so forth. None of them are about their titles, but rather are about expanding the reach of government and lining the pockets of freeloaders so they will support the politicians advocating this redistribution of your hard-earned money. And if you disagree with these people, you may as well be dead. I’m talking about the visceral expressed by leftist politicians, left-leaning corporate bosses, and Hollywood elites. There has been no better example of their hate and racism than what they have been saying about Senator Scott since his rebuttal to Biden.

Scott attacked the divisive Democratic Party and leftist race narrative. He said, “Nowhere do we need common ground, more desperately than in our discussions of race. I have experienced the pain of discrimination. I know what it feels like to be pulled over for no reason, to be followed around the store while I’m shopping… From colleges, to corporations, to our culture, people are making money and gaining power by pretending we haven’t made any progress at all. By doubling down on the divisions we’ve worked so hard to heal. You know this stuff is wrong. Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country. It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination. And it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.” And he predicted exactly what would happen in the wake of his rebuttal.

He said, “I get called Uncle Tom and the n-word by progressives by liberals. Just last week, a national newspaper suggested my family’s poverty was actually privilege because a relative owned land, generations before my time. Believe me, I know first-hand, our healing is not finished.” Since his speech, he was labeled “Uncle Tim” on social media. Politicians and others like Jesse Jackson, who make a lot of money pretending no progress has been made, criticized the speech saying it was an “inherent contradiction” and “sick.” Racism is a heart issue. Those who would hypocritically weaponize race are like those described in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” We know it when it exposes itself as it has with these people.
