South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott is a “problem” for the far-left. As are Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, acclaimed economist Thomas Sowell, Fox News contributor Candace Owens, and every other prominent Black conservative in America.

As the twisted left sees it, Black conservatives who refuse to live on the liberal plantation where they belong must be ridiculed, dismissed, ignored — and destroyed if necessary. And who best to gleefully assign herself judge, jury, and executioner than the current hood ornament of the race-hustling industry, MSNBC host Joy Reid?

Our story begins on Monday, when Scott announced he would vote against the Supreme Court confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson, writing in a statement on his homepage:

The historic nature of Judge Jackson’s nomination reinforces the progress our country has made. However, ideology must be the determining factor—not identity—when considering such an important lifetime appointment.

It is clear that Judge Jackson’s judicial philosophy and positions on the defining issues of our time make her the wrong choice for the Supreme Court. From leaving the door open on court-packing to her multiple overturned opinions, I cannot support a nominee with her record of judicial activism.

I remain disappointed that President Biden missed the opportunity to unite the country with a mainstream nominee that could have received resounding bipartisan support. For all these reasons, I will be voting no on Judge Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

[Jackson was confirmed on Thursday by the full Senate, 53-47.]

How “racist,” right? I’m kidding. Unfortunately, yet disgustingly predictable, Joy Reid was not.

Tim Scott being Tim Scott — and I’m talking about impeccable credentials and exemplary integrity  — fired back at Reid during a Thursday appearance on ‘Fox & Friends,” explaining why the MSNBC host’s silly blast was offensive. As transcribed by The Blaze:

What is so offensive about what Joy is saying is that a black man cannot think for himself, that I have to follow somebody else. That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

It reinforces the liberal elites’ approach to minorities who will not fall in line and do what they tell us to do. There are millions of Americans who happen to be black, who want to think for themselves, who will think for themselves.

But the power of the liberal elite wants to attack us like vicious dogs because they do not want anyone standing up opposed to what they are doing, leading our country in the wrong direction.

“It is vile, it is offensive,” Scott continued, “and we should stop allowing the liberal media to push these stories by their hosts that want one thing and one thing only: progressive, liberal policies that make it harder for African-Americans — not easier.”
