GOP Texas Rep. Pat Fallon: “Gary O’Connor’s comment against Senator Tim Scott is abhorrent, insulting, and unforgivable. Both he and the entire Lamar County Democratic Party should be ashamed of this racist behavior”
Not only did Twitter allow #UncleTim to trend during and for 12 hours after Sen. Tim Scott’s Republican rebuttal to the Biden SOTU, but even (at least one) Democrat party official jumped at the chance to get his racist hate on for all the world to see.
While Biden and Kamala Harris had the good sense to state that America is not a racist nation, Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote on Facebook (in a now-deleted post) that Scott is “little more than an oreo with no real principles.”

This is rich coming from a Democrat whose party has donned “antiracism” as its mantle and supposed governing principle. Nothing says “I oppose racism” quite like a using a racial slur against a black man.
A Texas Democratic official is facing calls to step down from his role after he called Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., a racial slur.
“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post, referring to Scott’s rebuttal to President Biden’s Congressional address on Wednesday.
Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Texas — whose district includes Lamar County located in Northeast Texas — eviscerated O’Connor for his comment on Friday. In a press release, Fallon called the slur — which refers to a Black person who is perceived as acting White — “unforgivable.”
“Gary O’Connor’s comment against Senator Tim Scott is abhorrent, insulting, and unforgivable. Both he and the entire Lamar County Democratic Party should be ashamed of this racist behavior,” said Fallon.
The first-term congressman called on O’Connor to “apologize and step down immediately” for his racially charged comments slur and asked the Texas Democratic Party and the NAACP “to condemn these words.”
Fallon also said the party “should take swift action to censure him.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott weighed in:
This is disgusting, hateful, and completely unacceptable.

Granted, we all know that Democrats are latching onto this antiracism gambit to validate the actual systemic, structural racism they are busily building against white people in their never-ending quest for more power. However, it is still shocking to see how blatantly, casually racist they are. And publicly so, hoping to score “woke” points with the leftist base by using derogatory racist insults against a black United States Senator.
Scott addressed this very issue on Sean Hannity’s show.
‘It is really saddening to see that what the left is doing is fighting bigotry with bigotry,’ Scott told Sean Hannity on Fox News.
‘They have exposed their hypocrisy and their true motivation,’ he said.
‘It has nothing to do with ending prejudice. It has everything to do with claiming or getting more power.
‘I have never seen such power grab and using people in such a despicable way.’
