South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has faced countless attacks since his nationally televised rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s speech before Congress last Wednesday.
The latest attack is a racial one, with a Texas Democratic official calling the black senator “an oreo,” as reported by Fox News.
Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote a scathing Facebook post in response to Scott’s remarks. He has since deleted his post.
“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,” O’Connor said.
US Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Tx) represents the portion of the state that includes Lamar County. On Friday, he posted a press release calling for O’Connor to step down. saying the racial comment is “abhorrent.”
“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.
Fallon called on the NAACP and Texas Democratic party to condemn the comment.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father
Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”
Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”
It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.
Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”
Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
