"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sorry Dr. King, but many of the people, like numerous African-Americans and white liberal supporters who typically called you their hero, have failed to live up to your Dream.
Policy & Issues Examiner Joe Newby reported how people, purportedly "tolerant" and "inclusive" liberals, have exploded with racial hatred and name-calling bigotry after Republican Tim Scott became the first African-American elected to the Senate from South Carolina since Reconstruction. He was appointed in 2011 to fill Jim DeMint's spot.
A website called BizPac Review wrote "Let the racism begin" shortly after Scott was announced the winner. First he was called a "token" and then "the name-calling escalated" to "Token black" and "token negro" became "America's newest 'House Negro,'" "Uncle Ruckus," "Uncle Tom" and "Uncle Tim."
Twitchy, a well known Twitter curation site, told readers "Search for <Tim Scott Uncle Tom> only if you'd like to see how disgustingly some liberals react to losing." So Libertarian News Examiner did just that. Here are some typical results. Most of these are in response to Scott's election but some are older because Scott has been guilty of being Republican-While-Black for several years now.
"Right on cue: Libs spew 'Uncle Tom' hatred after S.C. GOP Sen. Tim Scott's historic win" – Twitchy headline
"NC NAACP president: Sen. Tim Scott is a ventriloquist's dummy" – headline from The Daily Caller
"Rep. Clyburn Complains That GOP Sen. Tim Scott Doesn't Vote His Color" – Another Daily Caller headline
"Liberals Show What REAL RACISM Looks Like As They Unleash HATE on GOP Senator Tim Scott" – The Federalist Papers headline
"First Black Senator Elected In The South Since Reconstruction; Other Blacks Spew Racial Hate" – Western Journalism headline
"Uncle Tom Tim Scott becomes first black senator elected in south since Reconstruction. This is nothing to celebrate" – Tweet from Viva socialismo!
"Liberals Lose It: Show They are the Real Racists with their Reaction to Wins by Tim Scott and Mia Love" – Tea Party News Network headline
Mia Love is of course the first black woman elected to Congress as a Republican. That apparently makes her an Aunt Jemima, if not worse, rather than a human being. Here are a couple of her hate hits:
"Let the tokenization begin." – Tweet from Keshema Davidson
"Act White And Conquer" – Frank J. Miles Tweet
To libertarians of course they're just mainstream politicians; nothing more nor less. Why all the race-bating?
