Republican Sen. Tim Scotts Reads Tweets From the Tolerant Left: 'You Are a Disgrace to the Black Race'

Too many, particularly on the right, are found guilty until proven innocent on issues of race, issue of fairness.

That's what Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) recently had to say from the floor of the Senate prior to reading hateful and racists tweets levied at him for his support of newly appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions. One tweet urged people to "think for themselves." And yet, when someone does just that --- Sen. Tim Scott in this case --- he's vilified for not following in lockstep with liberal groupthink.

"That's ironic. Think for yourself. When you're talking about a group of people that votes 96 percent the same way every time. That's an amazing thing to throw around to somebody else. When I think it's pretty evident that Tim Scott thinks for himself," Co-host Pat Gray said Thursday on radio.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

PAT: So Senator Tim Scott got some interesting feedback because he supported Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

STU: Oh, no. How dare he.

PAT: And yesterday, it was kind of interesting because he read some of the tweets he's been receiving. And this is why reason number 7,862, I don't have Twitter, because what -- what good comes from it? This is the kind of stuff you get. So Tim Scott has been getting this kind of feedback. He's a black senator from South Carolina. So here's what -- here's what he's been seeing and hearing from people because he supported Jeff Sessions.

TIM: Sessions, you are a disgrace to the black race. Anthony Burnum @BurnumR says...

STU: Can we stop this?

PAT: I like that he's naming names.

STU: Not only is he saying their name, he's giving their specific Twitter handle so you can go online and tell them exactly how you feel about them.

PAT: You got to love that.

TIM: You're an Uncle Tom Scott. You're for Sessions. How does a black man turn on his own.

Anthony B. from @politicalarts says: Senator Tim Scott is not an Uncle Tom. He doesn't have a shred of honor. He's a house Negro, like the one in Django.

He also writes -- I guess Anthony Burnum has been fairly active recently on my Twitter feed.

I'm a complete horror. A black man who is a racist against black people. A big Uncle Tom piece of fertilizer.

PAT: Hmm.

TIM: Think for yourselves. You're --

PAT: That's ironic. Think for yourself, when you're talking about a group of people that votes 96 percent the same way every time. That's an amazing thing to throw around to somebody else. When I think it's pretty evident that Tim Scott thinks for himself.

STU: Absolutely.

PAT: I mean, he's gone against the mainstream of black thought for the last 60 years.

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: Yeah. It's a very difficult thing to do. I'm sure he gets pressure like this all the time.

PAT: Ugh, it's ugly.

STU: And it's funny too. It's like Sessions is such a ridiculous one to do this on. It's like Betsy DeVos, for example, is someone that most people are completely unfamiliar with, coming into this process. Right? So you can kind of assign whatever crazy view you want to her, and it's her job to try to disprove it. I'm not saying that's right. I'm just saying that's the way politics works. With Sessions, you've been working with the guy. You've been voting with him this entire time. Everyone knows he's not that nuts. Like you can't act as if he's this crazy person. He's been working with you in the same room for the past how many terms.

PAT: Right. They all know him. They all know him. They know he's not a racist.

STU: They know he's not. It's just theater. It is just theater. And, I mean, this is what people hate about politics. It really is.

PAT: And it didn't work out anyway because he is our attorney general now. So that part is done.

Next up -- who is next up on the confirmation hearings?

STU: Price, I believe. Tom Price for HHS. Which is --

PAT: And I don't think there is much opposition to him, is there?

STU: They're trying to get him on this financial -- insider trading type of stuff. But they expect that to be done tonight or tomorrow. So that should be pretty much done.

I mean, most of these are going to get through. I mean, he's going to be able to get every nominee he wants through.

JEFFY: Really, Sessions was only held up a little bit because they needed his vote, right?

STU: Yeah. DeVos was interesting, I guess because Pence had to cast the vote.

JEFFY: Right.

STU: Because there's two senators.

PAT: Oh, yeah, two Republican senators jumped the other side of the aisle and voted with the Democrats. So it was 50-50.

STU: Collins and Murkowski, right? Were the two.

PAT: Yes.

STU: There really has been no leaving Trump with these nominees because, generally speaking with, he's picked not only good people --

PAT: Good people.

STU: -- but people who are in the Republican mainstream. I mean, he's picked people who -- you know, General Mattis. You know, General Kelly. You know, Price is obviously a congressman. Pompeo is a congressman. Sessions is a senator. This is not like -- Trump, for all the drain the swamp talk, he picked a bunch of people who, generally speaking, come from the Republican mainstream. Which is, I mean, honestly like I think there is very little to complain about.

PAT: Other than Tillerson because he was the head of Exxon.

STU: Tillerson was a little bit unexpected, though I think he did well in his confirmation.

PAT: Yeah, he did.

STU: There are a few I don't like at all. But still, generally speaking, there's a bunch of good picks there. And they're not picks that you can come out and say, "Oh, these people are all crazy. They're all nuts." I mean, Gorsuch is another example of this. It's hard to oppose a guy like that. And if these statements are true, which I think they are from Gorsuch saying that he is -- it was not a good idea, essentially for Trump to start tweeting criticism of the judicial branch.

If it's true, it actually I think helps his confirmation. If you're on the borderline of whether you're going to vote for this guy or not, you have a piece of evidence that says he'll stand up to Trump if he thinks he's wrong.

And that's what you should want. I don't know if that's what Trump wants. But I think that's what you should want if you're a Republican or a Democrat. And if you're a Democrat, you say, well, maybe we have a shot with this guy. Maybe he'll stand up against the administration when he has to.

So if anything -- who knows what the truth is here. But it's a smart piece of strategy, to come out and be critical of Trump at this point, if you're Gorsuch. Because it probably helps you get confirmed.

PAT: Right. And he did do that. So that will be interesting. Somebody else that was somewhat critical of the White House and Republicans in general who hasn't been for a long time, Matt Drudge tweeted out something yesterday that I found somewhat interesting. We'll get into that, coming up.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
