Democrats have been making very bigoted comments against Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) since he delivered the response to Joe Biden’s address to Congress. He was called an “Uncle Tom” and the left even trended “Uncle Tim” on Twitter.
What set them off so? Scott dared to challenge the narrative, saying that America was not a racist country. That simple fact, said with truth and conviction by a black senator, upset their apple cart.
Perhaps the most disgusting attack in a slew of disgusting attacks was one from a Texas Democrat, Gary O’Connor, who referred to Scott as an “Oreo” in a now-deleted Facebook post. “I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an Oreo with no real principles,” Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor said.
O’Connor got a lot of backlash and calls for him to resign, including from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
This is disgusting, hateful, and completely unacceptable.

As we reported, he apologized and tendered his resignation as the chair of the Lamar County Democratic Party.
But now it looks like the Texas Democrats are showing exactly where they stand. They are now saying that they will not accept his resignation. They issued a statement.
“Gary O’Connor has led Lamar County Democrats for seven years and his life of service, collaboration, and activism for racial justice is well known throughout this community. His recent remark is incompatible with his core values,” the county party said in its statement.
“Lamar County Democrats recommit ourselves to conduct our private conversations and our public social media discussions with anti-racist, pro- reconciling attitudes and language. We strongly condemn bigotry of any kind and will continue our historic efforts to work for justice and equality for all our fellow citizens.”
But then they just demonstrated that they don’t give a darn about bigotry; their statement is just sham cover for their cowardly action. They’re just cool with a bigoted attack on someone daring to be “Republican While Black.” Their refusal to take action is basically an indication that they don’t take it seriously enough.
This whole episode has really shone a light on how hypocritical Democrats are on race, and this decision just adds to that.
Allen West, the Chair of the Republican Party of Texas, had the perfect response to all this insanity and Democrats’ bigotry. He said he was going to stand up against the party that was behind Jim Crow. He wasn’t going to let them forget what was said and sent them Oreo cookies as a reminder.
