Tim Scott has been appointed to fill the South Carolina Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Jim DeMint and immediately the racebaiters jumped in with both feet to attack him. One of the early hatemongers was Amos Brown, a host on a religious radio station in Indianapolis, Indiana. Brown used his Twitter account to claim that African American Tim Scott isn't really a black man.
Tim Scott is, of course, a Republican just like Governor Haley who will appoint him to the vacant seat. All one need be is a black man in the GOP and the hatemongers come out in force with their racist name calling and radio host Amos Brown rose early to the rote attack.
On his Twitter account (@Amoswtlcindy), Brown wrote, "Gee, courtesy of S Carolina GOP, the nation gets Tim Scott an ultra-rightwing, Tea Party devotee US Senator who's Black only in skin color."
Mr. Amos Brown calls himself a man of God and works for AM 1310, "The Light," a religious station that caters to the African American community in Indianapolis, Indiana.I really feel for African-Americans who dare to think for themselves and, God forbid, associate with the Republican Party. The vitriolic attacks made against black Republicans by people on the Left, particularly from other African-Americans, knows know bounds. Thirty years ago, people across the political spectrum would have applauded the appointment of an African-American to the U.S. Senate regardless of his or her party affiliation. In the political world of Barack Obama, any African-American who ventures from the Democratic Party is subjected by people on the Left to endless public lashings void of any semblance of civil discourse.
