HuffPo Reporter Implies that Sen. Tim Scott Is Trump's Token Black Guy, Receives Backlash

Rebel Staff

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.

OFF TOPIC

IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND OR RELATIVE WHO YOU THINK WOULD ENJOY THE REBEL MEDIA …. WHY NOT BUY THEM A SUBSCRIPTION ….. I’M SURE THEY WOULD LIKE THE NEW LINE UP … FROM TOMMY ROBINSON’S READING OF THE MORNING PAPERS ,,,, JOHN CARDILLO’S EXCELLENT REPORTING ,,,, THE DAILY TONGUE IN CHEEK REPORTS FROM DAVID MENZIES ,,,, CHRISTOPHER WILSON REPORTS FROM THE LEFT COAST ,,,,, START YOUR DAY WITH MARK LATHAM COMMENTS FROM DOWN UNDER. I CAN GO ON BUT BUYING A SUBSCRIPTION FOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF BUYING A GIFT FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS EVERYTHING, BUYING A SUBSCRIPTION SOLVES THE PROBLEM.

Al Peterson, In my opinion, Andrew Scheer really should learn this lesson as a back bencher, not the leader.

With the left you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. It’s always a never win situation which is the lesson Andrew Scheer needs to learn.
