Tea Party detractors are left crying foul once again

This week South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley finally announced she had selected U.S. Rep. Tim Scott to fill the U.S. Senate of the departing Jim DeMint.

While the selection of Tim Scott would be consider historic by any standard of diversity, the left is already crying foul and has sought to downplay the appointment because of his connections to the Tea Party Movement. The Republican establishment largely ignored the appointment.

More militant forces on the Left such as Amos Brown took a more disgraceful tact in attacking the appointment. Mr. Brown took to his twitter account following the announcement to post the following, "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. Brown describes himself as a Man of GOD and radio show host, yet he engages in cowardly attacks because some of us in the Black Community have opinions that run counter to his.

And we are called racists?

Knowing them, they’ll pretend he’s either white, an “Uncle Tom”, or ignore him and say they “Can’t see any black faces” (Chris Mathews said this, I think!)in the “Tea Party”!

For a black man to be acceptable to Democrats he must also be a Marxist.

Haley did a great job with this appointment. No way does the Democrat "mainstream" news media want to highlight the accomplishments of people like Allen West, Tim Scott, Tom Sowell, JC Watts, Walter Williams, Star Parker, Lynn Swann, etc., etc., etc.

They're all supposed to be on the Democrat slave plantation, aren't they? What's right with them?

So let me summarize the Left’s metrics on race. Tim Scott, who is African American is not Black because he’s not a leftist. Obama, who plays golf f’crisake, what’s more “white” than that, is an authentic Black, because he’s a leftist. So, if by some sudden enlightenment, Obama were to wake up tomorrow and begin expounding on the virtues of Frederick Hayek, Obama, poof, just like that, would cease to be black. It’s all very confusing.
