Republican Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.) addressed Sunday the liberal backlash surrounding his declaration that America is “not a racist country,” which resulted in Scott being targeted with racist condemnation.
What is the background?
After Scott absolved America of being inherently racist, liberals called Scott “Uncle Tim,” MSNBC host Tiffany Cross suggested that Scott is a slave of the Republican Party and claimed Harriet Tubman would have “left [Scott] behind],” and a Democratic leader in Texas called Scott an “Oreo.”
Democratic leaders — including President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) — made the same declaration about America last week, but they were not subjected to the same racist attacks as Scott.
How did Scott respond?
Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Scott denounced the attacks against him — and their posture on this issue more broadly — as “bigotry” and “hypocrisy.”
“Fighting bigotry with bigotry is hypocrisy,” Scott said.
The Republican senator was explaining that Americans should be exploring how to address the “lingering effect” of slavery, Jim Crow, racism, and discrimination, rather than debating whether America is inherently racist.
“Let me say, thank goodness that finally our president, our vice president and one of the leaders in the Democratic caucus in the House, Jim Clyburn, have all come forward and said exactly what I’ve been saying for a long time. America is not a racist country,” Scott said.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
