MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross, the host of “The Cross Connection,” on Saturday dedicated an entire segment on her show to a “rebuttal” to Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) speech earlier this week. According to Cross, Scott is “thirsty for white approval.”

“Let’s be clear: Tim Scott does not represent any constituency other than the small number of sleepy, slow-witted sufferers of Stockholm Syndrome who get elevated to prominence for repeating a false narrative about this country that makes conservative white people feel comfortable,” Cross claimed.

According to the MSNBC host, Scott had “many contradictions” in his rebuttal speech that she “could go into great detail refuting each of his asinine points.” The reason she’s not debunking each of Scott’s claims is that “he did that for” her, she claimed.

Cross equated Scott to a slave that “Harriet Tubman left behind.”

Even though the senator has been a leading force on police reform bills and anti-lynching legislation, Cross said “there are two sides to every token.”

“So thirsty for white approval, this dude actually stood on the national stage to defend the voter suppression law in Georgia even though as of last month, 361 bills were being introduced in 47 states to keep people who look like him out of the ballot box,” the MSNBC host stated. “The ability to shame the ancestors and appease the oppressors all in one speech, that’s extreme, though not like the domestic violent extremism that the Department of Homeland Security is investigating within his own ranks, mind you. But please, senator, say more about how unracist the country is while you trot out that tired line about going from ‘cotton to Congress’ to clown.”

Cross, who is a descendent of slaves and “a damn near daily survivor of institutional racism,” concluded in the segment, adding that she still loved the United States, “not for what it was, but for what it could be.”

“On this one, you’re not only on the wrong side of the aisle, Senator Scott, but you’re embarrassingly on the wrong side of history, as well,” Cross stated.

Instead of respecting Sen. Scott’s opinions, views, and experiences, the Left is quick to cancel him because he bucks their narrative. At what point do they realize what the senator is saying is his own take on the racial divide in our nation? While it may be hard for Democrats to fathom, there are a number of Americans out there who will respect someone’s history and point of view, even if they don’t agree with it or come to the same conclusion themselves.

If the Left was serious about refuting Scott’s points, they would talk substance and not resort to calling him “Uncle Tim” or “token.” As the South Carolina senator previously said, the Left won’t “attack my policies, but they are literally attacking the color of my skin. You cannot step out of your lane according to the liberal elite Left.”
