Politics Liberal Media Scream: MSNBC declares black Sen. Tim Scott a race-traitor
Race correction in medicine: A fight brewing in America's hospitals
Race correction in medicine is the use of a patient's race in a scientific equation that can influence how they are treated. Race correction in medicine has pitted medical students against their teachers, attracted the attention of Congress and led to a big lawsuit against the NFL. What happens next could affect how millions of Americans are treated. Medicine has never been immune to racismCarolyn Roberts, a historian of medicine and science at Yale University, says slavery and the American medical system were in a codependent relationship for much of the 19th century and well into the 20th.
This week’s Liberal Media Scream featured a racist attack by a black MSNBC host on South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, also black, after he rebutted President Biden’s joint session speech to declaring that America is not racist.
Leading the cable network’s attack was host Tiffany Cross who denigrated Scott for having the gall to dispute the liberal line that America is racist.
She rolled out every racist phrase she could. Cross called Scott “a stone fool,” “slow-witted,” “a token” and called his points “asinine,” all before the very low blow that Harriet Tubman would have left Scott “behind.”
Tim Scott's Republican rebuttal comes as his role in policing bill negotiation is also in the spotlight

Tim Scott (R-SC) stands on stage in an empty Mellon Auditorium while addressing the Republican National Convention at the Mellon Auditorium on August 24, 2020 in Washington, DC.
Cross, however, didn’t have a problem when President Biden and Vice President Harris agreed the U.S. is “not a racist country.”
From the May 1 The Cross Connection on MSNBC:
Tiffany Cross: “This week the sole black Republican in the Senate sounded a stone fool when he said this.”
Scott, in the Republican response to President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress: “Hear me clearly, America is not a racist country.”
Cross: “Okay. Let’s be clear. Tim Scott does not represent any constituency other than the small number of sleepy, slow-witted sufferers of Stockholm syndrome who get elevated to prominence for repeating a false narrative about this country that makes conservative white people feel comfortable because when you speak an uncomfortable truth, like Nikole Hannah-Jones, the party that Scott claims is not racist gets big mad and tries to silence you. Just this week Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell asked education secretary Miguel Cardona to scrap teaching the 1619 Project in schools because it would ‘reorient the view of American history.’ Lucky for McConnell, he has his own tap dancer to try and reorient the view of America for him.
Sen. Tim Scott responds to Biden speech: 'America is not a racist country'
The Republican Party put forward one of its most ascendant and interesting figures to respond to President Biden’s address to Congress on Wednesday, giving Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina the microphone. In a speech that clocked in at just under 15 minutes, Scott portrayed President Biden as someone who “seems like a good man” but is nonetheless dividing the nation by pursuing major legislation like the $1.9 trillion COVID-relief bill in March without Republican support. Scott argued that the Biden administration’s accomplishments in fighting COVID-19 were largely due to efforts made in the Trump presidency.
“There were so many contradictions in the senator’s speech that it was clear not even Scott believed the words he was speaking. I could go into detail refuting each of his asinine points, but he did that for me, and moreover, a lesson I’ve learned, don’t argue with people Harriet Tubman would have left behind. And sure, Tim Scott has spoken out about his encounters with law enforcement and he co-sponsored the anti-lynching bill in the Senate, but there are two sides to every token. So thirsty for white approval, this dude actually stood on the national stage to defend the voter suppression law in Georgia even though, as of last month, 361 bills were being introduced in 47 states to keep people who look like him out of the ballot box.
“The ability to shame the ancestors and appease the oppressors all in one speech, that’s extreme, though not quite like the domestic violent extremism that the Department of Homeland Security is investigating within his own ranks, mind you. But please, senator, say more about how un-racist the country is while you trot out that tired line about going from cotton to Congress to clown. Perhaps this was merely Senator Scott’s audition to be Sam Jackson’s understudy in the film Django because, as a descendant of the enslaved and damn near a daily survivor of institutional racism, I can assure you the question, ‘is America a racist country?’, is one that has been asked and answered many times over.
Allowing a racist slur against Tim Scott to trend confirms social media's activist bias
So much for the tolerant left, where diversity is celebrated, except in situations where class acts such as Scott don't carry the same ideology or worldview. And as we've seen increasingly on America's college campuses, the most important diversity of all - diversity of thought - is dismissed in the most pious manner imaginable. So given that Twitter is keenly aware of what the most popular topics are on its platform, one would think "#UncleTim" wouldn't trend for too long. But one hour became another. Then another. Then five hours. Then 10 hours.
“Yet we still love America. Not for what it was, but for what it could be. On this one you’re not only on the wrong side of the aisle, Senator Scott, but you’re embarrassingly on the wrong side of history, as well.”
Media Research Centerexplains our weekly pick: “The five scream scale may not be adequate for this one. What a disgusting, hate-filled commentary full of personal invective, excoriating a U.S. senator as some sort of race traitor for daring to deviate from the left-wing line on how America is a racist nation and anyone who is black must not stray from specific policies advocated by the Democratic party. Cross shows how scared liberals are of contrary views, pouncing to silence any divergence from the left’s race orthodoxy before it can get any consideration.”
Rating: FIVE out of FIVE screams.
