I’ve never cared for Sen. Tim Scott.
He strikes me as a creature of conservative think tanks. You can imagine Tim Scott being created in a lab at the American Enterprise Institute as a black version of Paul Ryan.
I was struck though by something he said in an op-ed that he wrote about the rise of woke supremacy for The Washington Post in March. I found it highly significant.
Sen. Scott said that “a man — a “woke” Black man — is to be sentenced this month for threatening to gut me “like a fish” and blow me away with his rifle.” Undoubtedly, the vitriol and the threat left an impression on him. This is the reality of what the woke version of “antiracism” has become these days. The people who have this mindset went after Scott for hours on Twitter calling him “Uncle Tim” after he delivered the lame Republican response to Joe Biden’s Joint Address to Congress.
“The e-mail was short and nasty. After first calling Sen. Tim Scott “the token Uncle Tom” and the N-word, the writer added: “You knuckle dragging conservatives should be sent to the ovens.”
This is how political disagreement is often expressed today.
The writer, Mildred50, if that’s her real name, was one of many on the left who were infuriated that Scott, a black Republican from South Carolina, had the gall to declare that “America is not a racist country” in his rebuttal to President Biden’s address to Congress. …
For his common sense and optimism, Scott received deserved acclaim and, distressingly, an outpouring of hatred, with the “Uncle Tim” slur trending on Twitter for 12 hours.
The e-mail from Mildred50 echoed that vile language, but the second sentence revealed something more. By saying “You knuckle dragging conservatives should be sent to the ovens,” the writer effectively identified as a liberal. …”
As I have pointed out, Ibram X. Kendi is like the guru of Wokeism and has become a major ideological influence on the Biden administration and the Democratic Party.
The curious thing about Wokeism is that these people are more racist, more illiberal and more authoritarian than us to the degree where I increasingly feel compelled to call them out on it. I believe that race exists and that race matters. I am proud to be White. I’m not enraged by Tim Scott though. I don’t want to gut Tim Scott like a fish or blow him away with my rifle. I don’t feel that strongly about the guy. Clearly, these people who have been indoctrinated in Wokeism HATE Tim Scott far more intensely than I do or pretty much anyone who reads this website. Why aren’t they banned for “hate speech”? Why is Merrick Garland’s DOSJ turning a blind eye to these “violent domestic extremists”?
“With traditional liberals fast disappearing, the ascendant left no longer champions equal rights. Instead, it champions racial prejudice and even resegregation under the guise of equity.
Biden is incentivizing schools to teach critical race theory, which reduces people to the color of their skin.
The open, unabated hatred for Tim Scott and others who don’t subscribe to this new orthodoxy is especially alarming. While politics has always been a tough business, radicalism grew more powerful under President Barack Obama, where a coercive, moralistic tone clouded every discussion. …”
Is any of this really still liberalism?
If it is not liberalism, what exactly are we dealing with?
This website has been officially designated a “hate group” by the SPLC, but look at these guys who have been infected by Wokeism. Who is the racist now? Who is more hateful these days? Who has less inhibitions about engaging in violence in public? If you are a sitting U.S. Senator like Tim Scott, who are you more afraid of these days? Where are the threats to your life and family coming from?
Note: These people have gone after Sen. Josh Hawley too. The mob assembled outside his house at night and yelled at his wife and children. They’ve been emboldened by Joe Biden.
