South Carolina Senator Tim Scott made history on Tuesday by being the first black Senator to be elected from the South after the reconstruction era, but rather than have his achievement celebrated by the left, the NAACP gave him a grade of an “F” on his legislative scorecard.
According to the YoungConservatives, Scott’s reply to the NAACP’s attempts at smearing him was legendary.
Along with being elected to the Senate, Scott is also the first black man to be elected to both the House and the Senate in the same state. He also delivered an absolutely crushing defeat to his opponent by taking 61 percent of the votes — none of this is anything to sneeze at.
The problem, however, is that Scott is a black conservative who is trying to shrink the government and create a better life for other black people, both of which go against the NAACP’s agenda of turning everyone into victims.
“South Carolina voters vote their values and their issues and not my complexion. This is a great sign for what’s happening throughout the south. But certainly, a fantastic sign for the evolution that has occurred in South Carolina,” Scott told MSNBC, according to PJMedia.
He also spoke about his “opportunity agenda,” which would help families become less dependent on government, while hopefully increasing their quality of life. One of his main focuses within it will be pushing for school choice.
“I’m very interested in creating a foundation of education for those folks in the middle-income arena as well as kids living in poverty, kids like myself who perhaps live in the wrong zip code going to underperforming schools,” he said.
“I’d love to give parents the tool of choice. When parents have choice in education, I think their kids have a better chance of success. Had it not been for education, I would not be sitting here today. I think of education as the gateway to the American dream. I want to open that gate wider for kids living in poverty, wider for folks in middle income American who are sandwiched. Think about it, the folks who are taking care of their parents and their kids, they need access to a better education system that sometimes they cannot afford. Why not give more parents choice?”
“That would lead to revolution,” he added.
Perhaps the best part of his appearance on the highly liberal network was when he called out the NAACP for giving him an “F” on his legislative scorecard, pointing out the major failures of the liberal agenda over the past few decades.
“Well, let’s just ask ourselves if we look back over history when the Congress was controlled by the Democrats for 40 consecutive years. If we look at the result of that control what has happened in black America? We saw greater poverty. If we take the statistics from 1970s to the 21st century, what we see very clearly is that poverty’s gone from 11 percent to 15 percent. These are classic examples that the policies of the left have not worked,” Scott said.
“I will tell you that if I have an F on the NAACP’s scorecard, it’s because I believe that progress has to be made, and the government is not the answer for progress.”
He couldn’t be more right. The liberal agenda of creating victims and enabling bad behavior has done more to hurt families of all races than help anybody.
