Democrats React to Scott's Senate Appointment with Racist Attacks

Gov. Nikki Haley's choice to succeed Sen. Jim DeMint as South Carolina's junior senator could expect to face fire from the left, for the simple reason of their being a Republican. But being a black Republican appointed by the nation's first female Indian-American governor has ratcheted up the assaults on Tim Scott beyond what almost anyone else could have faced.

R T.E Dixon wasted no time tossing out the n-word to attack the first black senator from the South since the 1880s.


Jules Cator, self-described on Twitter as "Northeast Liberal, MBA, Starbucks, Volvo, Bleeds Blue - Loves Fairness and Equality & OBAMA 2012 & Don't Drink TEA! (party)" tweeted a slam on several prominent black Republicans.

Other Democrats were quick to describe Scott as a "token" and "Uncle Ruckus," both clearly racist attacks.
