Radical Leftists Go Mad with Rage at Tim Scott’s Declaration that “America Is Not a Racist Country”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:29 am



Tim Scott gave the GOP response to Uncle Joe’s snoozefest of a speech last night. Senator Scott had a message for the nation: “America is not a racist country.”

Ohhhh, the fringe left didn’t like that one bit! Here is a typical reaction from the radical left:

Get it? It’s funny (they apparently believe) because it’s racist towards the type of black person the fringe left feels totally free to treat like a non-person. If radical leftists hate one thing more than any other, it’s a black man who thinks for himself, instead of thinking what they have told him to think.

Before you knew it, “Uncle Tim” was trending on Twitter, which finally put a stop to the trending topic this morning.

A Twitter spokesperson that the platform decided to block a trend calling black Republican Tim Scott, who gave the GOP [response], “Uncle Tim.”

“This is in line with our policies on Trends, specifically: ‘We want Trends to promote healthy conversations on Twitter. This means that at times, we may not allow or may temporarily prevent content from appearing in Trends until more context is available. This includes Trends that violate The Twitter Rules,’” a Twitter spokesperson told National Review in an email.

Hearing Twitter say “this radical leftist viewpoint is too nasty even for us” is kinda like hearing OJ say a cop was right to shoot Ma’khia Bryant, because what else are you supposed to do with a maniac wielding a knife? (Which, in the obvious simulation in which we “live,” actually happened.) When Twitter says you’ve gone too far with the radical leftist nastiness, then man, you’ve gone too far.

Our old friend Tommy Christopher was quick to oblige with a “conservatives pounce” take:

“Uncle Tim” became a top trending topic when critics used the derogatory term to slam Senator Tim Scott’s rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address before Congress, and conservatives expressed outrage.

On Wednesday night, the South Carolina senator delivered the GOP response to President Biden’s speech, and drew heavy criticism from opponents over some of the claims he made.

And on Twitter, a play on the “Uncle Tom” slur began to trend around Scott’s declaration that “America is not a racist country,” which was coupled with the revelation that he regularly endures racial slurs from people he described as “progressives.”

Among verified users, the term was mainly deployed by Black critics of Scott’s speech, and by conservatives who accused such critics of being the “real racists.”

Conservatives pounce™ on racism!

All in all, another glorious episode in our society. No, Rodney, apparently we cannot all just get along.

  1. I don’t see people going “mad with rage”. I see people laughing and mocking. Isn’t there a difference anymore? And if you disagree with Senator Scott’s conclusion that the U.S isn’t a racist country, how would a polite but forceful means of expressing it go?

    I’d like to think we’ve been getting less racist over time, it’s just that Trump made it easier for the bigots and white nationalists to say it out loud.

  3. Patterico, you said twitter finally banned it this morning. Do you mean that their reaction was too slow or was grudging? It looks to me like they reacted within 12 hours and I don’t know if that’s fast, slow, or normal for them to make a non-algorithmic moderations decision.

    That said, I’m not sure my smell preferences push me to want to jail fellow citizens in a way we don’t for, say, alcohol use.

    No, but they may be closer to the center of GOP activism. Either that or that the feared “white backlash” we kept reading about in the 70’s has festered and grown underground until someone said the words to invoke the demon Trump.

  19. Time, I don’t really have enough experience with Twitter to answer that. All my information is anecdotal and second-hand since I view Twitter as a cesspool.

  21. Tim Scott’s weak rebuttal shows a GOP badly on the defensive

    Biden laid out an expansive vision for transformative government. He renewed his pitch for trillions of dollars in new spending, on everything from infrastructure to a widened social safety net to a dramatically expanded caregiving infrastructure shoring up the human potential of children and families.

    This would be partly paid for by tax hikes on corporations, top earners and ultrarich investors, as well as by the recapture of revenue shielded by the accounting trickery of the wealthy and multinational corporations.

    In short, Biden is offering a vision of a rebalanced political economy. It would tax back some of the rents that have resulted from badly skewed market rules that have distributed income and wealth upward for decades and channel it into a big boost to the life prospects of those relegated to the bottom and those struggling in the middle.

    Scott’s rebuttal is notable for having nothing to say as an answer to this vision of a rebalanced political economy, let alone its underlying assessment of what’s gone wrong.

    Instead, Scott employed a two-step. He portrayed the GOP as favoring government spending amid crisis by citing spending Republicans supported under President Donald Trump, while falling back on bromides about big government to dismiss spending proposed by Biden.

    Scott hailed the packages of 2020, including the $2 trillion bill last spring and the $900 billion bill in December. But then he pivoted. The $ 2 trillion covid-19 relief bill that Biden signed was nothing but a “partisan” exercise. Biden’s current proposals are a “liberal wish list” funded by the “biggest tax hikes in a generation.”

    This hints at how badly on the defensive Republicans are. Scott needs to portray the GOP as committed to using government to help people, at a time when large majorities favor Biden’s plans.

    But this GOP simply doesn’t exist. GOP support for big packages under Trump was just the usual opportunistic Keynesianism, in which Republicans favor stimulus and deficits under GOP presidents and rail at them under Democratic ones.

  22. I thought Scott’s rebuttal was amazing.

    It’s a hard job “responding” to a SOTU and usually it’s a clownshow.

  23. @19, His commenters are pretty fringe and not happy with anyone that doesn’t affirm their POV. He’s going to have a hard time getting it more moderate. My view of the center of the GOP is Trump. The further you get from Trump the less ‘mainstream gop’ you are.

    Given the polls only reflect those who viewed the speech (mostly Democrats), the results are not a surprise, but useless.

    until someone said the words to invoke the demon Trump.

    That;s one of the big questions, along with who recommended Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn.

    On May 30, 2015, (actually that would have been printed May 31) Kyle Smith wrote in the New York Post:

    https://nypost.com/2015/05/30/stop-pretending-donald-trump-is-not-running-for-president

    …Trump’s negatives — 74% — are the highest of any potential Republican candidate.

    Blogger Jazz Shaw of Hot Air notes, “In our own survey, Trump shows up as a consensus candidate polling lower than ‘other’ (though above Lindsey Graham).” Among obnoxious billionaires of America, Donald Trump has the same chance of being elected president as Donald Sterling.

    The only people who want Donald Trump to run for the Republican presidential nomination are Democrats.

    What he did was he ran on immigration, and took a position nobody else would take, but neither would they argue with, at least that it was wrong in principle. If someone started to agree with him, he went further and said Mexico would pay for the wall.

  32. It’s a hard job “responding” to a SOTU and usually it’s a clownshow.

    It sounds like Scott had the clownshow part covered:

    And Scott hypes the GOP’s great respect for science, but largely while arguing that schools should reopen faster, airbrushing away the party’s support for Trump as he gave the middle finger to science for a year, producing catastrophe.

    DCSCA (f4c5e5)

  34. I don’t see people going “mad with rage”. I see people laughing and mocking. Isn’t there a difference anymore?

    Victor, I haven’t been following the reactions, so I won’t weigh in on the balance of rage vs. mockery. But here’s the key issue as I see it:

    When any conservative or non-leftist criticizes (or mocks) a black person for any reason, people on the left say it’s necessarily proof of racism, regardless of how precisely the non-racial reasons are set forth. People would cite specific actions of the Obama administration they disliked — or even the policies pushed by Nancy Pelosi — and Dems would reflexively say “You just can’t stand to see a black president!”

    Some of those same Dems no doubt have said harsh things about Clarence Thomas or Condoleezza Rice or Tim Scott, because Dems give themselves license to be merciless in their attacks on any black person who identifies as conservative or Republican. And they insist that they’re being totally not racist at all in so doing.

    But the special malice toward black conservatives seems to betray a racist assumption. People on the left will of course say that white conservatives are very wrong and probably evil, but will generally accept the reality that public opinion naturally falls along a broad spectrum — except for black people. Leftists seem to think there’s something unnatural about a black person exercising the same freedom of thought that white people do. And some white people seem to think it’s their right to decide what range of opinion is acceptable for black people to hold without losing their very soul.

    Maybe it’s mostly tactical. Dems want to keep pointing to the low number of black GOP politicians as proof that whatever the GOP offers is inherently racist, so they want to make it painful for a black person to identify with the party. Granted, they got some help from Trump with his tacit (or open) welcome to unapologetic racists. But a not insignificant number of black voters decided to overlook that and choose Trump over Biden for their own reasons. That doesn’t make them race traitors or Uncle Toms. It makes them people who have minds of their own.

  35. Nutcases gonna nutcase.

    When President Biden tells Scott to go back to the plantation, or to Africa, he’ll have reached the line Trump regularly crossed – without a peep of disapproval from his suddenly easily-offended handmaidens – for the previous four years.

    Somehow I don’t see it happening.

  37. HP, It’s a nasty, racial, slur and I have no problem with Twitter stopping it trending as a tag. It seemed to take about 12 hours for them to notice the trend and end it.

    Dave (1bb933)

  56. Patterico, if you didn’t watch Biden’s address, how do you know it was a “snoozefest of a speech”?

    I watched the address in its entirety. The thing about Biden is that he is not know for making great or even good speeches. Usually he’s prone to gaffes and fumbled words. That he was not in this instance makes this speech a success for him, although he did stumble over a few words now and then. But he did stutter as a child, which took him years to overcome with speech therapy.

    My problem with the address is that Biden proposed sweeping reforms and polices that come with a huge price tag. I agreed with only a few of them, like tax reform. Closing loopholes and prohibiting hiding money in offshore accounts I think would be a good thing. It just doesn’t seem fair that Warren Buffet pays less in taxes than his secretary. Immigration and law enforcement reform are desperately needed. Ending qualified immunity for police misconduct would be a good start. Most of the rest of Biden’s proposals and policies I thought were over the top. I doubt many of them will get through Congress.

    Biden wants to go big. However, when Roosevelt passed the New Deal and Johnson passed the Great Society, they both had large Democratic majorities in Congress. Biden does not have that. The Senate is 51 (with Harris’s vote) 50, and the Democratic majority in the House is small. So even with reconciliation or ending the filibuster, it will be difficult to pass most of his agenda, because he won’t get any Republican support.

    I also watched Scott’s response in it’s entirety. I though it was a litany of typical Republican grievances. He didn’t offer any proposals or policies to counter Biden’s, merely complained about socialism

    His comment that “America is not a racist country” raised some eyebrows and enraged the Left. When so many blacks are shot by police, while whites are arrest without incident, that’s a problem.

    Gawain's Ghost (b25cd1)

  57. When any conservative or non-leftist criticizes (or mocks) a black person for any reason, people on the left say it’s necessarily proof of racism, regardless of how precisely the non-racial reasons are set forth. People would cite specific actions of the Obama administration they disliked — or even the policies pushed by Nancy Pelosi — and Dems would reflexively say “You just can’t stand to see a black president!”

    Radegunda, I guess I would just have to see better proof of this proposition. The leftists I know did not see all criticism of Obama, for example, as proof of racism in each instance. Just particular examples (i.e. the idea that he was helpless without a teleprompter, wasn’t born in the U.S. and hated America). Other criticisms were seen as simply bad faith, i.e. that he was cramming Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling nation.

    As for black conservatives. Again the leftists I know readily acknowledge the existence of black conservatives, and those with black families sometimes reference a few. Their problem is usually with black politicians who refuse to acknowledge the harmful effects of the Republican policies they support.

  59. If it an axiom or postulate, and not a theorem that needs to be proven that Republicans who disagree with Democrats, or maybe the media consensus, on anything that can be construed as touching on race, or that does, it follows that a black person also knows that, and his signing on to the “wrong” position must be explained since it can;’t be the obvious reason of racism. This way nobody will have to look at their arguments. And the goal is to give people an easy way to dismiss what they say.

    With some things, they can claim emergency, or denial or “science” but that will not work for more sociological questions.

    Sammy Finkelman (51cd0c)

  60. In other words, a meta argument was used on Senator Tim Scott.

    Senator Scott didn’t make much of an argument, though, except maybe for bipartisanship, and that Republicans were being vilified unfairly, as, for example, with the Georgia law, but he didn’t really go into detail.

    When so many blacks are shot by police, while whites are arrest without incident, that’s a problem.

    Do you know what the ratio of people arrested with incident, to those shot in the course of an arrest, is for whites and for blacks?

    What’s problem is the disproportionate publicity given to incidents that fall into a particular pattern.

    1. Unarmed (at least at first report) African Americans shot by police.

    But not:

    2. Unarmed African Americans shot by people who are not the police.

    3. Unarmed whites, or people who fit into categories other than African Americans, shot by police.

    4. Police shot or killed by African Americans.

    You can lose perspective.

  63. With regard to GG’s:

    When so many blacks are shot by police, while whites are arrest without incident, that’s a problem.

    With “whites taken without incident”, usually in reference to mass shooters not preceded by an altercation immediately prior, there is the operating theory by law enforcement that the assailant has linkages to militia, white nationalists etc., there is the chance they break under interrogation.

    With black assailants, particularly at the B on B level,there is often unwilling to testify witnesses, lax prosecution, low penalties/jail time, a sense of wash rinse repeat. Asian victims are highly incentivized to tell the whole story where as blacks in black neighborhoods under liberal county DAs might not seem it worth it if the assailant will get another bite at the apple soon.

    urbanleftbehind (d0a46f)

  64. The media is simply more practiced and more comprehensive in applying these one-sided terms. The New York Times could have an article printed tomorrow with the title “TIM SCOTT: HOUSE NI____?” (most likely written by one of their own who probably fits that description much better) to absolutely no relevant pushback by their funders or allies. Complaining about it without demanding the punishment of the press as an institution, or at the very least its worst offenders, is generally unproductive.

    No man who habitually uses the utterly deceptive term ‘insurrection’ with regard to Jan 6 or ‘whataboutism’ when people mention common Democrat malfeasance can complain when the media he depends on to amplify that deception then decides to apply other deceptive and malicious terms like ‘systemic racism’, ‘Uncle Tom’, ‘hate crime’ or ‘slippery slope fallacy.’

    Fall for one set of obviously overlawyered terms and you can’t complain when people fall for others. One man did dismiss them all out of hand as ‘fake news’-though many who claim themselves “Republicans” have proven themselves unready for this power, and too willing to slip into PressenSprache when they find it convenient.

    Simon Legree (47a95f)

  65. Exactly, urbanleftbehind. But some comrades would call that systemic racism. They would. They’re here, you can ask them.

    Don’t see too many sporting loin cloth, grass skirts with spears and bones through their noses lately in Wilmington, Joe.

    Or Scranton.

    And BTW, Joe: ‘Lincoln first publicly advocated for colonization in 1852, and in 1854 said that his first instinct would be “to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia.” -source, history.com

    8-ball, Joe?
