The Left continues to expose it’s own bigotry toward any black man or woman who dares wander off the Democratic Plantation.
The Washington Post shocked readers on Friday for publishing a “hit job” on Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC, questioning his family history of going from a childhood picking cotton to the halls of Congress. Scott, who was chosen Thursday to deliver the Republican Party’s response to President Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress on April 28, was the subject of a lengthy piece by the Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler. “If you find yourself telling the grandson of a Depression-era Black man who spent his youth picking cotton to check his privilege, please for the love of all that is holy log off, WaPo,” Washington Examiner executive editor Seth Mandel responded. Pundit Stephen L. Miller added, “Democrats and media can lie about what Jim Crow was for weeks on end and not a word from Glenn or his newspaper. Not one. A black conservative Senator whose grandfather actually lived during Jim Crow comes along.. Glenn is ‘Now wait just a minute.’ This is a stunning new low.” The piece, “Tim Scott often talks about his grandfather and cotton. There’s more to that tale,” examined the “origin stories” of comments the Senator has made about being an ancestor of slaves. Scott has said his grandfather dropped out of elementary school to pick cotton, so the liberal newspaper enlisted its fact-checker to get to the bottom of the claim.Washington Post crushed for ‘fact check’ on whether Sen.
