    NY Times Welcomes Republican Tim Scott to Senate By Calling Him a “Token”

    Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, December 19, 2012, 9:04 AM


    The New York Times welcomed Republican Tim Scott to the US Senate by calling him a “token.”

    snippet of the times peice at site


    Republican Tim Scott is the only African American in the US Senate.
    Mediaite reported, via Lucianne:


    You have got to hand it to the New York Times’ editors – they’ve got moxy. A Times opinion piece on Tuesday introducing their readers to the newest Senator from the Palmetto State, former Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC), speaks about him – and those with who share his political affiliation and skin color – in the terms you would describe a curious science project. In “The Puzzle of Black Republicans,” the Times summons all the subtlety of the Kool-Aid Man as they smash through the perception that the “paper of record” maintains a single shred of neutrality as they advance the notion that non-Democratic African-Americans are a curiosity to be examined like some newly discovered species of fish.

    Of course, it’s OK for liberals to call blacks “tokens” as long as they are Republicans.
    Disgusting.

    Don't understand why more black Americans aren't disgusted by this.



    Tim Scott is a good man.

    Tim Scott is a teatard.

    And the Times didn't quite call him a token, did they? They said it looked less like progress for blacks and MORE LIKE tokenism.

    And if you're wondering why blacks run from the GOP, please, call our first black president the "food stamp" president again and say things like he doesn't think "like an American", and have your presidential candidates suck up to birfers.

    The reality is that most blacks really are conservative. They're religious.... they could be GOP "values" voters, if the party didn't tolerate such a huge degree of racial insensitivity.

    PATHETIC..you are sticking up for this hateful piece by the Slimes, but not surprising you would be adding onto more shit to it..NOTHING could be said about this President because of his SKIN COLOR..or they would be accused of being a RACIST..worked out well for you all didn't it

    Well actually, yes they did. The last line of the article is as follows: "No number of Tim Scotts — or other cynical tokens — will change that." The entire article implies that the appointment of Tim Scott - and other black conservatives before him - were "deployed ......to undermine black interests." It goes on to say that Scott was elected in 2010 on a platform of "anti-tax, anti-union and anti-abortion," which according to the author are "utterly at odds with the preferences of most black Americans," as though being a shill for "black" interests or any other interests makes one a more legitimate candidate.


    Is it true that all black Americans are pro-tax, pro-union and pro-abortion?

    hey, let us know when the CBC has a token honky and then we will talk.

    in addition it is not the GOP that is saying that the Dems have too many whites or too many blacks or whatever.

    It's you hypocrites that are counting black faces

    The race-hustling from the left is shameless.

    I just knew if either Gateway Plunderit or Jim Hoft were involved it would be yet another selective interpretation. And that it wouldn't include the original source, lest readers actually read it and check up on Hoft's usual bent. Here we have a Daily Double.

    Sure enough, what the story actually says is:

    That's a general statement about most "modern black Republicans" rather than specifically about Tim Scott. It includes him but it's not directed at him. And the rationale for that judgement is spelled out in the ensuing paragraphs, which is kind of the idea of making a point; you don't stop reading because you see the word tokens... you go on to see why it's there. Unless of course your real goal is to dumb-down the article into something it's not. The race hustling from Gateway Plunderit is shameless if not flameless.

    Point 2, this article is an editorial, not "The New York Times". It's one person's opinion. You can kind of get a clue about that by his use of the first-person singular ("I"). It's a guest op-ed, written by a political science professor at Penn, not an editor at the Times (and he's black, if it matters).

    But for point 3, let's go to Captain Obvious--
    Ahem, thank you, at the risk of stating the obvious, to label Person X a "token" is a statement not about Person X, but about the action of the entity that put them there. In this case the acting entity would be the Republican Party. I can't believe you guys are so swimming in your own echo chamber of ideological swill that you can't see thi--Thank you Captain, that'll do for now.

    I can see why Jim Hoft didn't go into law. He'd be laughed out of court every day. But nooooo, let's cancel the paper and call it the "Slimes" rather than read what it actually says. Let's take our cues from a hair-on-fire blog site that tells us about what the article said, rather than actually read it directly where we can judge for ourselves. Yeah there's a good plan. What could go wrong?

    I'll never understand why some people want to outsource their political logic to the Blogs of the Bubble rather than DIY. Gateway Plunderit... a reliable source :lmao:
