Black Republican politicians have one job—be the Black face that bolsters the white conservative narrative. They don’t have to know issues, they simply have to say the factor the GOP desires mentioned.
This brings us to South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.
Scott is aware of his job in addition to any Black lackey for the white proper. He is aware of he doesn’t should be knowledgeable, he simply must say what he’s anticipated to say with none regard for precise info. It’s why blamed police reform failing on Democrats insisting on together with “defund the police language” in a invoice wherein no such language existed and one the place a discount in police funding wasn’t even included. It’s virtually as if Scott didn’t trouble studying the invoice earlier than rejecting it like his overseers anticipated him to.
That is additionally the person who declared along with his entire chest that “America is just not a racist nation,” regardless of all of the statistical and historic proof that it’s. However numbers and info don’t matter when your solely job is to say the white…I imply, proper factor.
So, it ought to shock nobody that, throughout an interview with Fox Information on Tuesday evening, Scott did one other tap-dancing routine in admitting he hasn’t bothered tuning in to the Jan. 6 hearings. Nonetheless, he mentioned emphatically that these hearings he hasn’t watched are “made for TV,” missing in “cross-examination” and, after all, that they do nothing to discredit his favourite MAGA man Donald Trump. (I imply, Scott was the one Black senator who voted to acquit Trump after he was impeached for inciting the riot, so it’s no shock he’s nonetheless ingesting from the insurrectioner-in-chief’s Kool-Help.)
“I’ve not watched the Jan. 6 hearings. I used to be truly within the Senate when it occurred, so I don’t want an training on what truly occurred,” Scott mentioned. He later answered, “I believe if Trump is a nominee, after all we assist him.” (Discover Scott was requested if he would assist Trump, and he answered, “after all we” would. It’s virtually as if he’s only a range addition to the GOP hive thoughts.)
Now is an efficient time to say that Scott additionally as soon as continued the drained and racist narrative that Black persons are being duped by Democrats into believing Trump and America are racist. In fact, if he knew something about his personal folks, he’d know we’ve been calling Trump racist since lengthy earlier than he was president, and we’ve been calling America racist since endlessly with out the affect of a single politician, Democrat or Republican.
I assume former Georgia election employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss was additionally being “duped” by Democrats when she testified Tuesday earlier than the Jan. 6 committee and recounted the racist abuse she and her mom skilled when Trump and Trump’s allies falsely accused them of pulling fraudulent ballots from a suitcase.
Once more, Scott doesn’t know issues, he simply says issues—like the nice little GOPuppet he’s.
