The NAACP released a statement on their leader calling Tim Scott a ‘dummy’ to Fox News tonight saying:
Dr. King emphasized love and justice rather than extremism. Unless we stand for justice we cannot claim allegiance to or pay homage to Dr. King. In a state such as South Carolina, politicians, whether they be black or white, should not be echoing the position of the far right.
Tim Scott call these comments absolutely ridiculous and slammed the 50 year war on poverty by the government, pointing out that it hasn’t lifted anyone out of poverty and the NAACP is still pushing these policies.
He went on to articulate conservative principles that do work in a very classy way.
