After Republican Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.) delivered an impassioned rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, declaring that despite the president’s claims, “America is not a racist country,” liberals on Twitter immediately tried to discredit his claims by launching racial epithets at him.

In the speech, Scott acknowledged that while America’s racial “healing” remains an unfinished task, no amount of divisive rhetoric from Democratic politicians and progressive media figures could diminish the progress the country has made toward racial equality. Such progress is powerfully embodied in his own family’s history, Scott suggested, pointing out that his family has gone from “cotton to Congress” in the span of one lifetime — a fact which, egregiously, was called into question by liberal Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler last week.

The South Carolina lawmaker went on to note that, in many cases, Democrats are the ones who exhibit racism in their politics and policy. He recalled that last year, after the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, he built a police reform bill to address concerns over unchecked instances of police brutality in America. But Democrats blocked the bill from ever being debated in Congress by using a political tactic they now insist is racist — the filibuster.

“My friends across the aisle seemed to want the issue more than they wanted a solution,” he charged.

He later referred to Georgia’s new voting law, which actually expands early voting opportunity in the state, but which Democrats — including the president — have falsely branded as the new “Jim Crow.” Republicans have an interest in making it “easier to vote and harder to cheat,” Scott said, but Democrats, on the other hand, are only interested in “virtue-signaling.”

“Race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants. It’s far too important,” Scott said to close out discussion on the topic.

Stopping at nothing to discredit his assessment that “America is not a racist country,” liberals immediately launched a racist offensive against Scott on social media, using racial epithets.

Following Scott’s speech, mentions of “Uncle Tim” surfaced so many times on Twitter that it became a trend.

Others shied away from that specific term, but still delivered the same racist message.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro wrote: “There is a certain irony to the fact that Leftists have determined to be as racist as possible to Tim Scott in order to prove him wrong when he says America isn’t racist.”
