Sen. Tim Scott tweets from new Twitter handle, swearing in at noon; Update: ‘Uncle Tom,’ ‘plantation’ viciousness begins

As Twitchy reported, Tim Scott resigned from the House yesterday. Today, he will become Senator Scott!

Congratulations and best wishes again pour in.

Amen, Senator Scott.

Unfortunately, the oh-so-civil Left doesn’t follow that example. Will they again hurl vicious hate and slurs Tim Scott’s way?

Of course they will. And so it begins.

Repugnant.

We join in wishing Senator Scott all the best. It is an honor to have you representing we, the people, sir.

Update: Predictable and despicable.

Such racism is thankfully taken to task by non-cretins.

But, the racism from the Left continues.

    Go Senator Scott.

    Isn’t this “Uncle Tom” reflex a mild form of Tourettes?

    I’m totally serious, it’s like they can’t help themselves.

    • grais

      It must be reflex mixed with ignorance, hatred, and racism. They obviously know nothing about Uncle Tom

    • TocksNedlog

      Black + does not support cradle-to-grave welfare = race traitor
      The new Obama math

    • rogueco

      I’d be stunned if any one of those fools could name the author of the novel Uncle Tom came from, let alone the title of the book

        bet they even can’t read

    Your getting better, Twitchy. All the congratulatory tweats, er, tweets made it to the iPhone app but the vilest tweets were left off.

  • CloneSix

    So proud of my hometown district rep makin’ good! Give ’em hell, Senator!

    These look to be from southern racists, not many of them subscribe to the left. Again, Twitchy fails basic ethics.

    • http://twitter.com/J_Dunkle Benjamin Ghazi

      You look to be desperate to discount the ignorance of the left. Again, you fail basic intelligence.

      • $30158943

        What evidence do you or Twitchy have that these tweets are from “liberals”? None, other than your blind hatred for “liberals” and that they are demeaning tweets. But this does not mean that liberals sent them. It is just as likely, perhaps more, that southern racists posted these. So its Twitchy that failed basic ethics and you that failed basic logic.

        • Mellow Melon

          Well, the Southern “racists” voted for Nikki Haley as governor and Tim Scott as House Rep. So that kinda cancels them out.

          • $30158943

            Logic fail, southern does not equal racist.

          • Mellow Melon

            Yeah but you used the term Southern racists.

          • $30158943

            I did southern = racist but southern racist still exists. Simple logic.

          • https://twitter.com/JenineHaggerty Her name is Rio

            Oh puhlease stfu. I am white upper middle class educated southern and NOT a f*ing racist, you ant-white bigot!

          • $30158943

            You are the worst kind of pompous white trash with a real language problem. You eat with that mouth?

          • http://twitter.com/crazytas1 ricci

            see there ya go again when you cant win a point libns always resort to foul language or name calling

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            It takes one to know one, I guess. You must be proficient in ‘pompous white trash’.

          • wwbdinct

            Wait… what? “Logic fail, southern does not equal racist.” then “I did southern = racist but southern racist still exists. Simple logic”. Can you stop spinning and just admit that these tweets were done by liberals, supporters of Obama and the Democrats? Is that so hard to do?

          • Mellow Melon

            But you just told me that southern does not equal racist, and yet you used the term Southern racist in your initial post.

          • Vennoye

            The only time I EVER encountered racism was in Ohio and northward to New York. Never found racism until I moved North!

          • WisconsinPatriot

            You know what……I have been to the south. I was treated very well by black and white. As opposed to the treatment I and other “people of no color” receive here in the great white north, there just is no comparison! I think the south has worked through their race problems for the most part and should be looked to as an example.

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          You seem to have failed basic reading comprehension and even visual interpretation if you cannot discern the origin of the hate. But prove us wrong. Feel free to use your next post to wish Senator Tim Scott all best wishes for a successful Senate career.

          Go ahead. We’ll wait.

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            PS — I think we -all- agree that racists are posting the vile filth directed at Senator Tim Scott.

          • $30158943

            Oh wise one, tell me of the origins. I have not learned how to discern political leanings from a name.

        • WisconsinPatriot

          Racism is almost EXCLUSIVELY the purview of the left. You gave birth to the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow, you opposed the civil rights acts extended BY Republicans…..YOU LYNCHED BLACKS AND REPUBLICANS!!!!!! Just walk away peanut, this is a fight you CANNOT win.

          • $30158943

            You have failed the same logic test as twitchy. Democrats of 100 years ago where not progressives. However times change and tables turn and the republicans of today are now the party of angry old white men esposing racist agendas, ala tea party and anti immigrant forces. So I don’t have to win this one as you have already lost it.

          • Chris Jones

            That logic doesn’t follow. Why would the republicans just up and change their position? We’ve done more to advance black rights than your party.

          • $30158943

            Name one thing in the last twenty years. While you are thinking consider all the anti affirmative action, anti immigrant, welfare and food stamp demagoguery just in the 2012 GOP primary. Not surprising that there is single digit support for the GOP

          • wwbdinct

            Ummm…. that you support all of those programs makes you the one who is the racist. Why do you support keeping people of all races tethered to the government forever?

          • WisconsinPatriot

            Is that ALL you have? You hit like a GIRL!!!!!!

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

            Hit like a girl? Is there a Crowder sighting?

          • http://twitter.com/lynchcooks Chris Lynch

            You are a super-shiny tunnel-visioned example of the less evolved, wrapped up so blind-and-dumbly in your Left Wing Propaganda Dome of Hatred, that you are unable to glean the slightest truth from events as they occur before your own very narrowly squinted myopic eyes. You make ignorant bigots look like open-minded philanthropists of benevolence. Racist is racist, regardless of its origin. And in this case, as seems to be the never-ending saga of the Hypocritical Lefty Nut Jobs these days, it originates once again from you. Re-read all that you’ve said and see if you can understand it the second or third time around.

            No, you will not find evidence, you will see the result of the “new” Goebbel’s propaganda machine…..AKA MSNBC, CNN and leftists. Have you ever asked youself “WHY” these people are so afraid of the Tea Party People–just a group of people–not an organized group, no official leaders….just a grouping of “your” fellow Americans. Why are they such a threat to the leftist machine that it feels they must be destroyed?? The answer to why they are so afraid is what you need to find out!!

          • http://twitter.com/crazytas1 ricci

            theres a simple answer really its called being a racist themselves theres an old saying ” you are what you claim others to be” and its why they cant win the debate on an even battlefield of thought

        • mike_in_kosovo

          What evidence do you or Twitchy have that these tweets are from
          “liberals”? None, other than your blind hatred for “liberals” and that
          they are demeaning tweets.

          Speaking of failing basic logic…I was *completely* unaware that Detriot, MI or Pennsylvania was part of the South (tweets from Motorcitylib and sweetladypa) – thanks for pointing that out for us. That’s sarcasm, btw.

          Simply reading their feeds shows that, in fact, the various posters *are* liberals – easily confirmed by their racist remarks for anyone not sharing their ideology.

          • $30158943

            Thanks for classifying the world’s genus. Must be very comforting to possess that skill. Can you read minds or just stool samples?

          • mike_in_kosovo

            You know, if you’re going to *try* to make a remark about intelligence, it’s better to spell the word “genius” correctly.

            But to answer your question; given that I was responding to YOU, the answer is obviously ‘stool samples’.

            Edit to add:
            Weezy – constant stream of HuffingGlue links

            Rapley – constant stream of race card comments

            MotorCityLib – self described “Liberal blogger from the great city of Detroit”

            Edmond Frost – “So proud of Nation’s first Black President”

            You’re right… there’s just *NO* way to tell they were liberals!!! (That was sarcasm again)

          • wwbdinct

            Game, set, match! Nice job Mike.

          • TheOriginalDonald

            I regret that I have only one ^ to give for that post, Mike.

          • wwbdinct

            Heh heh. Your premise was just blown to pieces by Mike in Kosovo and that’s all you can come up with as a response to him? That’s the problem with you lefties – you just can’t man up and admit you were wrong about something – anything. Thanks for the laughs though. I thoroughly enjoyed the ass kicking you just got.

          • $30158943

            You and mike are like two peas in a pod, wingnuts in love, too bad you don’t believe in gay marriage.

          • $30158943

            sorry, don’t feel like I had anything kicked but did get quite a few laughs from all the wound up wingnuts exposed to their own hypocrisy.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            So, given that the hateful tweets *were*, in fact, from liberals, you were laughing at yourself in the mirror?

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            What hypocrisy? Instead of being pointless, try making a point.

            Hey “Genus” (I mean CryB) – Your posts are just “genus”. Thank you so much “genus” for enlightening us… way to go “genus!” BTW – genus = group, class, species, kind, etc. The next time you comment on someone’s intelligence, at least spell the word correctly – Genius!

          • $30158943

            Hey Genius, I used the word genus because I meant genus (I already know what it means and didn’t have to look it up like you) because I was commenting on Mike’s apparent taxonomy for classifying people’s political persuasions purely by their twitter name. So now that you’ve exposed your genus (horse’s ass) you can go now.

          • MondaysChild76

            I must’ve been typing while you were posting because I basically said the same thing. This should go without saying but I absolutely agree with you!

        • MondaysChild76

          Isn’t it just as likely that the “demeaning tweets” came from LIBERAL NORTHERN RACISTS? Did you bother to check out any of the profiles of the people the vile tweets came from? Seriously John Conner’s handle is @MotorCityLib. I bet there’s a good chance he’s from Detroit. @lovelyladypa seems like the handle of someone from Pennsylvania (PA). @Edmond_Frost’s profile says he’s in D.C. The last time I checked none of these places were in the south. You asked what evidence Twitchy has that these tweets came from liberals. It’s simple. Visit the tweeters’ profiles and read some of their past tweets. If you can’t discern in a couple of minutes that these people are liberals then you have no critical thinking skills whatsoever.

        • peoplectr

          well if and when you click on their names and its plastered with Obama pics, I think it’s a pretty good indication. There’s your sign!

        • http://twitter.com/crazytas1 ricci

          due to the vocabulary in which they use to express themselves shows they are “liberals” since a lib always acts this way when they have no argument they can win and seems to me the only racist rants I ever hear are from libs……. you know that party of race baiters like sharpton and waters oh and lets not forget that grand dragon of the KKK ole byrd himself and there now I have proven your basic lack of intelligence

    • disappearing moderate

      You mean from southern Detroit and southern D.C? These attacks are primarily from other African Americans so their venom must be politically motivated, not racially motivated, right? I suspect none of these people have ever read Uncle Tom’s Cabin or are aware that Uncle Tom was actually a noble figure who refused orders which violated his principles and whose love and sacrifice transformed hearts. Why do you think Southerners are more likely to be racist? There are racists of all colors throughout this country, but Southerner doesn’t equate with racist, nor does Republican.

    “But, the racism from the Left continues.” Wow I had no idea that the rambling tweets of 5 or 6 people that are supposedly on the “left” represent everyone that isn’t a right leaning republican. I’ll make sure to remember that the next time Victoria Jackson tweets out something off kilt. Get real. If Michelle Malkin really had balls (and yes I know she is a woman, its just figure of speech) she spend as much time looking for “the people on the right” making the same racist comments.

    • wwbdinct

      Oh, the hurt feelings of the lefties! A few tweets? Michelle has been following the vicious, vile tweets that Sen. Scott has been getting since Gov. Haley first announced he was taking over DeMint’s seat. There have been hundreds of these, even worse than those of today. In addition, she does call out people on the right, often I might add. It’s just that there are always so few on the right who are truly nasty like the majority of the lefties are.

      • peoplectr

        And its not just a few tweets on Scott. If you would get your head out of msnbc for a minute, you would have seen the trend on vile remarks towards all republican and tea party blacks along with hollywood blacks. Wake up man

          @peoplectr @wwbdinct I should have qualified my comment with the few tweets being specifically the ones in the post. Not tweets out in the wild.

      Wow honey, calm down.

They approved, the comment is up. It’s OK, deep breaths. (And for the record, “Freedom of Speech” doesn’t apply to a privately owned/operated website. It means the Government shall pass no laws limiting the freedom of speech. Twitchy is well within it’s rights to delete foul posts).

    If they knew how Uncle Tom really was and what he did for people, these idiots could POSSIBLY wake up and not be so racist.

It is an amazing visit, and then you can walk on the underground railroad.

    It seems as the NAACP is only here to service liberals that are “colored” not the conservaitves! #hipocrite!

    Of course the left responds with its usual BS. Congrats to Sen. Scott BTW.

    Sad that some would rather idolize a President who is not looking out for them instead of embracing Scott who has gotten to where he based on hard work and integrity. The blue print for success is found with Scott not with Obama.

    Good Luck SENATOR Tim Scott, and Don’t let the real Uncle Toms (Libturds) get you down. And if they still don’t like it?… TOUGH! This is (still) a FREE COUNTRY! Jawamax 8<{D}
