The left is always claiming that conservatives are inherently racist. However, in their quest to make absolutely everything about race, it's often left-wingers who end up exhibiting racism themselves.
On Wednesday, Republicans headed to the White House to celebrate the House passing the historic GOP tax reform bill. There, President Donald Trump gave a speech on the South Lawn while Republican Senator Tim Scott, a key advocate for the bill, stood behind him.
When leftwing Huffington Post writer Andy Ostroy saw that an African American man was standing behind the president, however, he ignored Scott's political accomplishments and called him a “manipulated prop” for being the “ONE black person” standing by Trump.
Scott immediately fired back on Twitter:
Had a conservative reporter demeaned a Democratic black senator in this manner, the backlash would have been so swift that the journalist likely would have been fired within hours.
However, the mainstream media has no interest in exposing the racism of the left, and furthermore has no interest in admitting that some black men like Scott actually ARE conservative, so Ostroy has faced little backlash.
It's funny that the left doesn't seem to realize that, in the "war on racism," they are actually fighting against themselves.
