Tim Scott (R-Candidate SC-01) Issues Statement on NAACP Condemnation of Tea Parties
Tim Scott is a Republican candidate for Congress in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District. If you are unfamiliar with him, you can read more about him here, here, or here. Tim released an official statement regarding the NAACP voting today to condemn the Tea Party movement as racist.
“I understand that the NAACP, at its annual conference in Kansas City, will vote today on a resolution condemning the Tea Party movement as “racist”. I believe that the NAACP is making a grave mistake in stereotyping a diverse group of Americans who care deeply about their country and who contribute their time, energy and resources to make a difference.”
“As I campaign in South Carolina, I participate in numerous events sponsored by the Tea Party, 9/12, Patriot, and other like-minded groups, and I have had the opportunity to get to know many of the men and women who make up these energetic grassroots organizations. Americans need to know that the Tea Party is a color-blind movement that has principled differences with many of the leaders in Washington, both Democrats and Republicans. Their aim is to support the strongest candidates – regardless of color or background – who will fight to return our country to its Constitutional roots of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.”
I have been sold on Tim Scott since I first heard of his campaign, but this makes me like him that much more. If you wish to thank Tim for his efforts fighting for the Conservative cause and his statement on the NAACP’s race baiting… A donation to his campaign would probably be a good start.
