“Uncle Tim” trended on Twitter Wednesday night as left-wing users flooded the site with the racial slur on Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C, following his rebuttal to President Biden’s address to Congress.
Scott, who is Black, declared the United States is not a racist country while noting he had encountered racism in his life. Some of it, he said, came from the left in the form of being called an “Uncle Tom,” a derogatory phrase for Blacks who are viewed as too deferential to Whites.
The article goes on to state the following:
Black conservatives have often been on the receiving end of the insult, such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who was repeatedly referred to as “Uncle Clarence” by far-left MSNBC anchor Joy Reid last year.
The left started mocking Scott as “Uncle Tim” on Twitter:
I’d totally be unsurprised to learn that Stephen Miller wrote that bullshit speech for Uncle Tim.
That would make more sense.

How can calling Tim Scott “Uncle Tim” be racist when he just told everyone this isn’t a racist country? 🙂🇺🇸

Tim Scott gets called Uncle Tom by progressives. But he’s an Uncle Tim.

In my defense I actually said “Uncle TIM.”
And he was talking about his nephews!

Conservatives hit back:
The fact that “Uncle Tim” is trending on Twitter tells you all you need to know about the left

Hey woke white and black progressives: if you call Sen. Tim Scott an “Uncle Tom” or like those tweets (as if we can’t see them), it’s pretty simple…
YOU’RE THE RACISTS.

I’d just like to say to all the #UncleTim tweeters, next time anyone of you opines about national conversations, systemic racism or white privilege, please pause to stick it right up your fucking racist asses.
Thank you, that is all.

Many lashed out at Twitter for allowing the slur to be used:
“Uncle Tim” is trending on Twitter right now because apparently it’s okay to use racist epithets as long as they’re directed at a Republican.

Twitter would never let a pejorative trend against a Democrat, but has no problem with “Uncle Tim” and “Lady G”

Racist Twitter had “Uncle Tim” trending last night in reference to our man Tim Scott.
Y’all know Twitter only let’s trend what they want.
So they are complicit in RACISM.
