Senator Tim Scott blasted Democrats on behalf of the GOP in response to Biden’s address.
Scott talked about critical race theory, tax dollars supporting abortions, expanding the courts, and Democrats’ refusal to find common ground in the Senate.
What got most people’s attention though is when he condemned critical race theory in America and followed it by saying “America is not a racist Country”.
He also stated most of the discrimination he’s experienced has come from progressives and liberals that have called him racial slurs like “Uncle Tom and the “N-word”.
Shortly after Senator Tim spoke, “Uncle Tim” started trending which just proves Scott’s point even more.
Take a look:
The fact that “Uncle Tim” is trending on Twitter tells you all you need to know about the left

Hey woke white and black progressives: if you call Sen. Tim Scott an "Uncle Tom" or like those tweets (as if we can't see them), it's pretty simple…
YOU'RE THE RACISTS.

The New York Post didn’t stay behind and had this to report:
Sen. Tim Scott on Wednesday knocked President Biden for “empty platitudes” about national unity while also accusing the US of “systemic racism” in a blistering Republican response to Biden’s first speech to a joint session of Congress.
The South Carolina Republican said Democrats hypocritically talked about unity while filibustering his policing reform bill and rejecting GOP efforts to influence Biden’s recently passed $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.
Scott, one of just three black senators, also said “America is not a racist country” — rejecting Biden’s recent assessment of America as systemically racist.
“Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country. It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different discrimination. And it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.
“Original sin is never the end of the story. Not in our souls and not for our nation. The real story is always redemption,” Scott said
"I get called Uncle Tom and the N word by progressives…I know firsthand, our healing is not finished," Sen. Tim Scott says in GOP rebuttal of President Biden's address to Congress, adding later, "Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country." pic.twitter.com/EOet8AriSb

It’s almost like Democrats had to make it loud and clear on Twitter that racism exists in this country by being racist themselves!
I just turned off the Tim Scott Uncle Tom GQP Rebuttal. I don’t need their token sharing their propaganda in my home after hearing an exceptional speech and plans for the future. Not today Satan.

I’ll never call anyone an Uncle Tom again. Henceforth they will be known as an Uncle Tim.

Leo Terell made an excellent point to defend Senator Scott:
If a white American claims systemic racism does not exist, he will be viewed by Democrats as a racist. If a black American claims systemic racism does not exist, Democrats will call him an Uncle Tom.

Fox News chipped in too:
Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., took aim at race relations, corporate cancel culture and the politics of division during his GOP rebuttal to President Biden’s speech.
“Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country,” Scott said.
“It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination, and it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.”
The only Black Republican senator, Scott has talked openly about his experience being targeted by police, including getting pulled over seven times in one year.
Now he’s leading the GOP effort to pass police reform legislation in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
“I have experienced the pain of discrimination,” Scott said.
“I get called Uncle Tom, and the N-word by progressives, by liberals,” he added.
