If you missed South Carolina Senator Tim Scott’s rebuttal to Joe Biden’s mess of a speech, you really must take the time to read it or watch it. And naturally, racist liberals went wild to attack this black man because he rejects their left-wing, anti-American ideology.

At one point in his speech, Sen. Scott said that America is not a racist country, but he also pointed out that he has been the target of white racists, but racists from the left. He has been attacked as a race traitor and an Uncle Tom for refusing to bow to the hardcore, socialist Democrats.

Republicans, Scott said. have an interest in making it “easier to vote and harder to cheat.” But Democrats, on the other hand, are only interested in “virtue-signaling.”

“Race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants. It’s far too important,” Scott said.

Right on cue, liberals took to social media to probe that he is right, the left are racists:

So, these racist liberals proved Scott to be right. But what were these scumbags all mad about? Scott’s address was uplifting, full of hope, and grounded in true Americanism.

See for yourself:

Here is the full text:

Good evening. I’m Senator Tim Scott from the great state of South Carolina.
We just heard President Biden’s first address to Congress.
Our President seems like a good man. His speech was full of good words.
But President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership.
He promised to unite a nation. To lower the temperature. To govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted.
That was the pitch. You just heard it again.
But our nation is starving for more than empty platitudes.
We need policies and progress that bring us closer together.
But three months in, the actions of the President and his party are pulling us further apart.
I won’t waste your time tonight with finger-pointing or partisan bickering. You can get that on T.V. any time you want.
I want to have an honest conversation.
About common sense… and common ground.
About this feeling that our nation is sliding off its shared foundation… and how we move forward together.
***
Growing up, I never dreamed I’d be standing here tonight.
When I was a kid, my parents divorced. My mother, my brother, and I moved in with my grandparents. Three of us, sharing one bedroom.
I was disillusioned and angry, and I nearly failed out of school. But I was blessed.
First, with a praying momma…
Then with a mentor, a Chick-Fil-A operator named John Moniz…
Finally, with a string of opportunities that are only possible here in America.
But this past year, I’ve watched COVID attack every rung of the ladder that helped me up.
So many families have lost parents and grandparents too early.
So many small businesses have gone under.
Becoming a Christian transformed my life — but for months, too many churches were shut down.
Most of all, I am saddened that millions of kids have lost a year of learning when they could not afford to lose a day.
Locking vulnerable kids out of the classroom is locking adults out of their future.
Our public schools should have reopened months ago. Other countries’ did. Private and religious schools did. Science has shown for months that schools are safe.
But too often, powerful grown-ups set science aside. And kids like me were left behind.
The clearest case for school choice in our lifetimes.
***
Last year, under Republican leadership, we passed five bipartisan COVID packages.
Congress supported our hospitals, saved our economy, and funded Operation Warp Speed, delivering vaccines in record time.
All five bills got 90 or more votes in the Senate. Common sense found common ground.
In February, Republicans told President Biden we wanted to keep working together to win this fight.
But Democrats wanted to go it alone.
They spent almost $2 trillion on a partisan bill that the White House bragged was the most liberal bill in American history!
Only 1% went to vaccinations. No requirement to re-open schools promptly.
COVID brought Congress together five times. This Administration pushed us apart.
***
Another issue that should unite us is infrastructure.
Republicans support everything you think of when you think of “infrastructure.” Roads, bridges, ports, airports, waterways, high-speed broadband — we’re all in!
But again, Democrats want a partisan wish list. They won’t even build bridges… to build bridges!
Less than 6% of the President’s plan goes to roads and bridges. It’s a liberal wish-list of Big Government waste… plus the biggest job-killing tax hikes in a generation.
Experts say, when all is said and done, it would lower Americans’ wages and shrink our economy.
***
Tonight we also heard about a so-called “Family Plan.” Even more taxing, even more spending, to put Washington even more in the middle of your life — from the cradle, to college.
The beauty of the American Dream is that families get to define it for themselves.
We should be expanding options and opportunities for all families — not throwing money at certain issues because Democrats think they know best.
***
“Infrastructure” spending that shrinks our economy is not common sense.
Weakening our southern border and creating a crisis is not compassionate.
The President is abandoning principles he held for decades. Now, he says your tax dollars should fund abortions. He’s laying groundwork to pack the Supreme Court!
This is not common ground.
***
Nowhere do we need common ground more desperately than in our discussions of race.
I have experienced the pain of discrimination.
I know what it feels like to be pulled over for no reason. To be followed around a store while I’m shopping.
I remember, every morning, at the kitchen table, my grandfather would have the newspaper in his hands. Later, I realized he had never learned to read it. He just wanted to set the right example.
I’ve also experienced a different kind of intolerance.
I get called “Uncle Tom” and the N-word — by ‘progressives’! By liberals!
Just last week, a national newspaper suggested my family’s poverty was actually privilege… because a relative owned land generations before my time.
Believe me, I know our healing is not finished.
In 2015, after the shooting of Walter Scott, I wrote a bill to fund body cameras.
Last year, after the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, I built an even bigger police reform proposal.
But my Democratic colleagues blocked it!
I extended an olive branch. I offered them amendments. But Democrats used the filibuster to block the debate from even happening.
My friends across the aisle seemed to want the issue… more than they wanted a solution.
But I’m still working. I’m still hopeful.
***
When America comes together, we’ve made tremendous progress. But powerful forces want to pull us apart.
A hundred years ago, kids in classrooms were taught the color of their skin was their most important characteristic — and if they looked a certain way, they were inferior.
Today, kids again are being taught that the color of their skin defines them — and if they look a certain way, they’re an oppressor.
From colleges to corporations to our culture, people are making money and gaining power by pretending we haven’t made any progress. By doubling down on the divisions we’ve worked so hard to heal.
You know this stuff is wrong.
Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country.
It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different discrimination.
And it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present.
***
I’m an African-American who has voted in the South all my life. I take voting rights personally.
Republicans support making it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
And so do voters!
Big majorities of Americans support early voting…
And big majorities support Voter I.D. — including African-Americans and Hispanics.
Common sense makes common ground.
But today, this conversation has collapsed.
The state of Georgia passed a law that expands early voting; preserves mail-in voting; and, despite what the President claimed, did not reduce Election Day hours.
If you actually read this law, it’s mainstream! It will be easier to vote early in Georgia than in Democrat-run New York.
But the left doesn’t want you to know that. They want people to virtue-signal by yelling about a law they haven’t even read!
Fact-checkers have called out the White House for misstatements.
The President absurdly claims this is worse than Jim Crow.
What is going on here?
I’ll tell you. A Washington power grab.
This misplaced outrage is supposed to justify Democrats’ sweeping bill that would take over elections for all 50 states; send public funds to political campaigns you disagree with; and make the bipartisan Federal Elections Commission… partisan!
This is not about civil rights, or our racial past. It’s about rigging elections in the future.
And, no — the same filibuster that President Obama and President Biden praised when they were Senators… that Democrats used just last year… has not suddenly become a racist relic just because the shoe is on the other foot!
Race is not a political weapon to settle every issue the way one side wants.
It’s too important.
***
This should be a joyful springtime for our nation.
This Administration inherited a tide that had already turned. The coronavirus is on the run!
Thanks to Operation Warp Speed and the Trump Administration, our country is flooded with safe and effective vaccines.
Thanks to our bipartisan work last year, job openings are rebounding.
So why do we feel so divided… and anxious?
A nation with so much cause for hope should not feel so heavy-laden.
A President who promised to bring us together should not push agendas that tear us apart.
***
The American family deserves better. And we know what better looks like!
Just before COVID, we had the most inclusive economy in my lifetime.
The lowest unemployment ever recorded for African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans. The lowest for women in nearly 70 years.
Wages were growing faster for the bottom 25% than the top 25%.
That happened because Republicans focused on expanding opportunity for all Americans.
We passed Opportunity Zones… criminal justice reform… and permanent funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities for the first time ever.
We fought the drug epidemic… rebuilt our military… and cut taxes for working families and single moms like mine.
Our best future won’t come from Washington schemes or socialist dreams. It will come from you — the American people.
Black, Hispanic, white and Asian. Republican and Democrat. Brave police officers and Black neighborhoods.
We are not adversaries. We are family!
We are all in this together. And we get to live in the greatest country on Earth.
The country where my grandfather, in his 94 years, saw his family go from cotton to Congress in one lifetime.
So I am more than hopeful — I am confident — that our finest hour is yet to come.
Original sin is never the end of the story. Not in our souls, and not for our nation. The real story is always redemption.
***
I am standing here because my mom has prayed me through some very tough times.
I believe our nation has succeeded the same way:
Because generations of Americans, in their own ways, have asked for grace… and God has supplied it.
So I will close with a word from a worship song that helped me through this past year. The music is new, but the words draw from Scripture.
[May] the Lord bless you and keep you,
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you…
May His presence go before you,
And behind you, and beside you…
In your weeping and rejoicing,
He is with you…
May His favor be upon [our nation], for a thousand generations
And your family… and your children…
And their children.
Good night, and God bless.

DirecTV Removes Conservative News Network in Blow to Free Speech

The move is just the latest incident in which conservative bandwidth has been arbitrarily limited, and it certainly won’t be the last. 

Published

on

In our nation, we’ve long held the belief that the diversity of opinion is a tool for sharpening our abilities and ingenuity.  The freedom to speak as you want is the best way to keep the evil among us from snatching up the entirety of the American Dream for themselves, and it levels the playing field among the masses.

That it why the latest move from DirecTV is so egregious.

The largest satellite provider in the United States said late Friday it will drop One America News, a move that could financially cripple the rightwing TV network known for fueling conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

The announcement by DirecTV, which is 70% owned by AT&T, comes three months after a Reuters investigation revealed that OAN’s founder testified that AT&T inspired him to create the network. Court testimony also showed that OAN receives nearly all of its revenue from DirecTV.

The sudden change comes after years of cooperation.

DirecTV, with approximately 15 million subscribers, is by far OAN’s largest carrier. According to testimony by OAN’s accountant reviewed by Reuters, DirecTV provided 90% of the conservative network’s revenue.

“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” DirecTV said in a statement.

The OAN-DirecTV contract is set to expire in the next several months. DirecTV began airing OAN in April 2017, a deal that began shortly after OAN and AT&T settled a lawsuit over alleged oral promises during negotiations.

My Pillow CEO Blackballed by Banking Institutions Over ‘Reputation Risk’

The left is taking their war on conservatism to absurd new lengths.

Published

on

As the 2022 midterm election remains just over the horizon, casting an already dark cloud over the coming months, there has been a concerted effort among those on the left side of the aisle to exploit the events of January 6th, 2021 for political gain.  And, as Democrats continue to fear for the worst in 2022, they are casting an ever wider net.

The tactic is essentially spray and pray:  Throw subpoenas and accusations all over the place, and then beg the heavens above that something sticks.

This is making life very difficult for those who are, or were once, associated with Donald Trump.  This includes the CEO of the My Pillow corporation, Mike Lindell.

During a Friday episode of right-wing political strategist Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, Lindell claimed that Heartland Financial and Minnesota Bank and Trust are attempting to “de-bank” him over concerns that they could face fallout related to having him as a client. During the podcast, Bannon and Lindell played an audio recording that they said was a call with a bank official.

“Just because of our organization saying, ‘Well, why are we connected with somebody that could be in the news.’ And, not that the FBI is even sniffing and looking, but what if somebody came in and said, ‘You know what, we are gonna subpoena all his account records…and then also we make the news,'” the person in the recording said. “So it’s more of a reputation risk.”

Lindell went on to tell Bannon that the financial institutions want him to shutter his accounts within 30 days. But the pro-Trump businessman insisted that he is refusing to comply.

“I said, ‘I am not being part of this. I’m not leaving. So you’re going to have to throw me out of your bank,'” he said. During the segment, Bannon put the phone numbers and contact information of top officials at the institutions onscreen—urging supporters to call and complain.

And, finally…

“Where does it end everybody? Where does it end?” Lindell asked, suggesting that he is being persecuted for his controversial activism. He contended that the banks’ decision was related to his refusal to comply with the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021 pro-Trump attack against the U.S. Capitol.

As the January 6th committee grows bolder and brasher, we should perhaps expect more examples of such political discrimination to make headlines.
