Tim Scott attacked for not voting his color

Here we go again. More deplorable race-baiting comments by South Carolina Democrat Congressman Jim Clyburn – this time directed against South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott.

Senator Scott has already endured a racial assault coming from North Carolina’s NAACP President Rev. Barber and now this: Clyburn thinks Scott doesn’t vote “according to the color of his skin.” Then which way are white people supposed to vote?

According to the Daily Caller, Assistant Democratic Leader Rep. James Clyburn complained in a Thursday Washington Post article. “If you call progress electing a person with the pigmentation that he has, who votes against the interest and aspirations of 95 percent of the black people in South Carolina, then I guess that’s progress.”

Yep, it’s just another case of liberal progressive hypocrisy regarding civility in political discourse. And it’s further evidence of the abject disdain for black conservatives — those who have escaped the 21st Century liberal progressive plantation — to the chagrin of the modern day overseers, such as Clyburn.

Silly me, I thought Senator Scott represented his constituents no matter what their skin color. Obviously, Clyburn has been given the command to attack, obstruct and undermine Senator Scott’s reelection efforts “by any means necessary” – Alinsky-style.

What got under Clyburn’s skin? Senator Scott was simply out walking the walk. According to the Post, Scott was working at a Goodwill store in Greenville, S.C. alongside one of his constituents who didn’t know who he was. When James Copeland, who happens to be black, was told of Scott’s identity he said, “Oh, wow, I thought he was just some guy off the street. He was really speaking on my level. I felt like I can relate to him. I’d vote for him. Absolutely.”

And there you have it. The greatest threat to progressive socialists is if prominent black conservatives are successful in conveying those principles and values in the black community. As a result, the white liberal “massas” get upset and put pressure on the overseers to clamp down, as Clyburn did. But it makes no sense. If Clyburn actually believes — which it seems he does — that the Democrat party has the interest and aspirations of the black community at heart, he is delusional.

Clyburn has allowed himself to become the liberal errand boy sent to collect the bill and keep blacks in their place in exchange for a “leadership” position. As a matter of fact, did anyone hear a peep from the NAACP, National Urban League, or Congressional Black Caucus Chairman, Rep. Marcia Fudge at the manner in which Rutgers University treated former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice? Of course not, because for these black overseers, Rice got her comeuppance since she is decidedly not part of the “black order.”

After all, it was the Democrats who were once responsible for those Jim Crow laws, ad nothing much has changed. The new version Jim Crow laws are aimed at those who must be destroyed, denigrated, demeaned, and publicly humiliated — and not a sound from the liberal media.

I can almost bet this story wasn’t covered on ABC (America Barack Channel), CBS (Constant Barack Station), NBC (National Barack Channel), CNN (Clueless News Network), PBS (Public Barack Station), or MSNBC (Most Serious National Barack Channel) – but if they did it would probably be to blame Sen. Scott.

And over at Bloomberg News, Francis Wilkinson wrote a nasty column entitled, “Do Republicans lower the bar for blacks?” Seriously? I suppose Wilkinson never saw Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) during a House Armed Services Committee hearing ask the US Pacific Command Admiral about the island of Guam tipping over if more Marines were deployed.

Or how about Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stating that the US Constitution is 400 years old? We all know the bar is set very high for Rev. Al Sharpton.

This is the new Jim Crow, and it is also the modus operandi of the Democrat party: intimidation, fear, and coercion.

But it’s not going to work – at least not with me. As my former Commanding General of the First Infantry Division, General Gordon Sullivan would state, “If you came looking for a fight, you came to the right place.” No retreat. No surrender.
