Rep. Tim Scott resigns from House, gets ready to become Sen. Scott; Hate starts

Rep. Tim Scott tweeted out his resignation from the House today, as he gets ready to replace Senator Jim DeMint. DeMint announced his resignation from the Senate last month.

Congratulations pour in.

And, of course, the first reprehensible tweet comes in immediately.

More to come? Based on what happened after the announcement that he was to become Senator Scott, we expect so, sadly.

Update:

Predictable, yet still utterly contemptible.

    So excited to have Tim Scott represent my state in the US Senate!!! God speed Mr. Scott!

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Haha, progs. Our senators are more diverse than yours! And he got here on merit, not cause of his skin color(looking at you Sheila Jackson Lee) And his district isn’t in the toilet.

  • sqeptiq

    Note that Tim Scott got his start as an aide to the fierce segregationist Strom Thurmond.

    I guess the content of his character is lost on the militant libturd left.

    Love that Republicans are on here adamantly defending a black man. That shows that they have come a long way in the past 20 years.

      Don’t appreciate the “back-handed compliment.” You’re the one seeing race. We see a rising star that represents us well.

    Tim Scott represents conservative priciples to a “T”. He’ll be a great asset to SC in DeeCee. Judging by all the vitrol coming from the left, he must be doing something right.

    We had a wonderfully talented woman run for congress this last election. She happened to be black and a female. The “LOVE” she received from others with similar skin color was mind boggling! ‘House _igger’, ‘Uncle Tom’ etc… all the time. I know which party looks at the content of one’s character and not the color of one’s skin — hint–its not the one with a D at the front of their name. It was revolting to see what she had to endure from the libs.

    seems they have learned it well from your god obama as thats all he knows how to do

    We learned it from parasite takers like you.

  • me

    So if they had an avatar it would make it “more better” for you? Really?

  • TocksNedlog

    You’re absolutely right. Certainly there won’t be any other hate-filled tweets against Senator Scott anytime soon. And anyway, any tweets that do come out probably won’t have avatars, so how do we really know that they aren’t all faux-tweets put out by Twitchy staffers in an attempt to gin up phony outrage?

    “Manufactured hate.” lol! Look in the mirror the next time a conservative disagrees with Obumbler and you claim it’s because of racism.

  • Lovetorun2

    Yes, and Twitchy acknowledged that it was one tweet…with “more to come?” (question mark, question mark, question mark)…did you read some of vile tweets targeted at Tim Scott when it was first announced that he would replace DeMint?? Real, “nonmanufactured” hate on display there!

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Yeah, didja see the flood of love when it was first announced?

  • waltzingmtilda

    I always find it so odd when a person who comes to a conservative site solely to disagree/disrupt starts by admonishing others to “get a life”.

    5 Congrats & ONE hate tweet. Twitchy hate manufacturing machine at work.

  • http://twitter.com/AngryTwitch T. Baguette Jones

    So where are they? Twitchy team asleep at the wheel, again?

    A “thumbs down” vote equates to ‘hate’ now? Ya know, it would really be okay for you to NOT project this “if you are opposed to the president then you must be a racist” formulation upon all aspects of life.

    LOL – laughing b/c you have to be joking, right???? “Real hate” for speaking the truth?? (our taxes did just go up!!).

    Have you seen the vile tweets aimed at Tim Scott after Gov. Haley announced him to replace DeMint?

    How about the horrible tweets wishing death to G. H. W. Bush?

    Do you dare to post Hilary blood clot tweets too? Yeah, right.

  • Lovetorun2

    Didn’t see any vile death treats towards Hillary posted on Twitchy. Got some? Evidence please…

  • TocksNedlog

    Hillary’s blood clot has a Twitter account!
    Is there nothing she can’t do/hasn’t done?
    She’s a national treasure, really she is.

  • TocksNedlog

    Oh, they’re coming.
    Wait for it . . .

    Those are horrible and in no way do I condone them…find 47 more (equal to the 50 degenerates who wished death on Bush 41).

  • Lovetorun2

    Ugh – Stop the blather and go bother people at PuffPo or Daily Kooks.
