Republican voters were horrified.
They expect their elected officials to fight for them and their values.
But one Republican Senator has big questions to answer after this defection to the Democrats.
South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott wants to run for President in 2024.
Scott benefits from the fact that the corporate media hates black Republicans and continually attack him with racist hit pieces.
The latest example of this smear campaign was a Washington Post “fact check” that criticized Scott’s great grandfather for owning land in the time of Jim Crow.
However, Scott’s chosen to use his political capital to undermine law enforcement and work with Democrats on their anti-police agenda by allowing Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to tell officers how to do their jobs.
Last summer, when Black Lives Matter rioters – with the tacit support of Democrat mayors and governors – looted and burned cities, Scott used the moment to introduce anti-police legislation that would federalize control over police practices.
Now that Joe Biden is in office, Scott is taking the lead on negotiating with Democrats to pass legislation that will gut the ability of the police to do their jobs.
“I’m confident that the issues that I’ve been discussing as it relates to making progress on police reform are today — they have more traction than they had last year,” Scott told reporters.
Scott added that he thinks a breakthrough is on the horizon.
“I think we are on the verge of wrapping this up in the next week or two depending on how quickly they respond to our suggestions.” Scott added.
The main sticking point is Democrats demand to repeal the doctrine of “qualified immunity” which prevents police officers from being sued individually for acts committed while on duty.
Instead, Scott proposed a “compromise” that would allow individuals to bankrupt police forces by allowing them to sue the department for any misconduct committed by an officer in the line of duty.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed with Scott that Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict in the death of George Floyd was not enough accountability, and that Congress needed to act by passing legislation undermining the police.
“We should not mistake the guilty verdict in this case as evidence that the persistent problem of police misconduct has been solved or that the divide between law enforcement and so many of the communities they serve has been bridged. It has not,” Schumer declared.
“I don’t know that anyone will see the George Floyd verdict as a transformative moment in our justice system. I think we should see it as a serious step in the right direction,” Schumer added.
Tim Scott is choosing to attack the police as the launching pad for his Presidential campaign.
Republican voters are looking for fighters.
Last year when rioting mobs of Joe Biden voters rampaged through the streets of major cities, Tim Scott folded and tried to appease hordes tearing the nation’s metropolis’s apart,
This isn’t the first time Scott caved to the left’s racial grievance politics.
Scott helped sink one of Donald Trump’s conservative judicial nominees with BLM talking points.
Republican voters are going to ask Scott some tough questions about his ability to defend America and the remaining institutions that aren’t under the sway of the left from the Democrat Party’s onslaught.
