Based on a handful of signs amidst the hundreds of thousands of protesters at Tea Parties nationwide, the MSM has concocted a narrative of the racism endemic on the right. But, rank-and-file Republicans just won’t conform to media stereotypes.
With “68 percent of the vote” South Carolina State Rep. Tim Scott “beat his former Charleston County Council colleague Paul Thurmond, which makes him likely to become the first black Republican to serve in the U.S. House since J.C. Watts of Oklahoma retired six years ago.” Hmmm. . . . Republican voters in one of the most conservative states in the union overwhelmingly picking a black man over a white guy1!?!?! Heads must be exploding in news rooms around the country.
In the same state on the same day,
Nikki Haley [“the daughter of immigrant parents from India”] trounced Gresham Barrett on Tuesday to win the GOP’s nomination for governor, breaking gender and ethnic boundaries, and sending a message to the Republican establishment: Conservatives are tired of entrenched politicians and they’re sick of the status quo.
The daughter of immigrant parents from India defeats a white male Republican. Hmm. . . . equally confusing to those who see Nixon’s “racist” Southern Strategy as continuing to define the GOP.
