Senator Tim Scott, the first black Republican elected to Congress from the South since Reconstruction, has a message for the Black Lives Matter hate group.
If you don’t like it when I say ‘all lives matter,’ you can stick it.
Or at least that’s roughly what he said.
Scott said that if the phrase “all lives matter” is offensive to anyone, then that is their problem.

Senator Tim Scott said tonight that if people are honestly offended by him or anyone else saying “all lives matter,” that’s their problem.
On CNN tonight, Scott told Brianna Keilar, “If it causes offense to say that all lives matter, black lives, white lives, police officers… if that is somehow offensive to someone, that’s their issue, not mine.”
He lamented the “regression in race relations” over the past few years and said people offended by messages of unity need to “look into their own hearts and figure out why that is.”
Scott said that acknowledging the country’s “provocative history on race” isn’t the problem, it’s people such as those in the Black Lives Matter movement who refuse to move beyond the past.
“One of the things I’ve said since I’ve been an elected official,” he explained, “is we are better together.”
“To find a way forward, it is truly together,” Scott said.
Comment: Is Tim Scott right? Can the Black Lives Matter movement take their fake outrage and shove it?
