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.

The Journalist Who Schooled Brian Stelter on Woke Media | Batya Ungar-Sargon | Ep 125

Wokeness has taken over the American Left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the Left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, this week's guest included. Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joins Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness — on HIS OWN show. She reviews the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump Derangement Syndrome, why the Left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.

Did Jan. 6 & Ray Epps Expose a Corrupt FBI? | Darren Beattie | Ep 124

The events of January 6 have had constant attention from the mainstream media, yet so much about that day remains cloaked in mystery. So much just doesn't add up. It doesn't feel right. Darren Beattie wrote an article for www.Revolver.News titled "Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears to Have Led the Very First 1/6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol," which dives into some of the unexplainable issues surrounding that day. Who is Ray Epps? What was his role in the riot? Is it a coincidence that 1/6 is so eerily similar to the events involving Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer? How much did the feds know about the events? Did they know about the riot in advance and do nothing? Or, a more terrifying possibility, did they play a role in the riot? The more you poke around, the more it makes your head spin. Merrick Garland, the Oathkeepers, the FBI. Beattie wants to know all the answers. And Glenn wants to know, how did Beattie, a Duke professor, become the only non-tenured professor in the country to publicly support Trump ahead of the 2016 election, only to try his hand at uncovering what could be the biggest corruption story of our time?
