The Texas Democratic Party official who termed Senator Tim Scott(R-SC) an “oreo” submitted his resignation following widespread condemnation for his racial slur.

When used as a derogatory slur, “Oreo” means “a Black person who adopts the characteristic mentality and behavior of white middle-class society.

Democrat Leader Resigns In Shame

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Lamar County Democratic Party Chairman Gary O’Connor announced he submitted his resignation.

“I am deeply and sincerely sorry for my inappropriate and hurtful use of the racist term I used to describe Sen. Tim Scott on my personal Facebook page.

It was insensitive, and I have embarrassed myself and my party by its use,” he said. “As a result, I feel compelled to offer my resignation as chair of the Lamar County Democratic Party for consideration by the County Executive Committee,” he added.

O’Connor’s resignation follows his very disparaging comments against Senator Scott, who rebutted President Joe Biden’s recent address. He posted his reactions to Scott’s rebuttal, which read: “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.

Outrage Over Oreo

Outrage followed O’Connor’s insensitive remarks. Texas Governor Greg Abbott led other Texas political leaders in condemning the post.

“This is disgusting, hateful, and completely unacceptable. O’Connor must apologize to @SenatorTimScott & step down immediately,” Abbott tweeted Saturday. He called on Texas Democrats to censure O’Connor immediately. 

Representative Pat Fallon (R-TX), also called out O’Connor. He issued a statement condemning the unfair and uncalled-for remarks.

“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. This kind of behavior is not tolerable in Texas, the United States, or any political party,” he wrote. 

‘Uncle Tim’ Trended As Well

Leftists also took advantage of Scott’s rebuttal by making posts with the hashtag #UncleTim. The hashtag is an updated term for “Uncle Tom” using a similarly sounding epithet. Uncle Tom is the titular character from the 1852 novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” 

In addition, “Uncle Tom” is also used as a derogatory epithet for an excessively subservient person. It refers to a person who betrays their own group by participating in its oppression, whether willingly or not.

#UncleTim trended for a few hours before Twitter banned the phrase from appearing in its trending section. However, Twitter didn’t bother removing tweets containing the offensive term.

‘America Is Not A Racist Country’

Scott is the only black Republican in the United States Senate. To respond to Biden’s recent address to Congress, the GOP chose him to deliver their reply.

In his speech last Wednesday, Scott insisted that “America is not a racist country,” and he spoke in defense of Georgia’s election integrity law. He said he knows the pain of getting stopped by police while driving. However, he doesn’t think that makes the country racist. 

Even as Senator Tim Scott faced ridicule for his announcement, many leaders shared his thoughts. The New York Times asked presidential candidates last January 2020 if the United States was a racist country.

Not one candidate said yes. This lineup includes major Democrats such as Senators Bernie Sanders (VT)  Elizabeth Warren (MA), former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

    People need to get over the past and let things go and stop being so sensitive about everything spoken to them . We can’t change the past but if people keep bringing it to the forefront it definitely makes things worse because those wounds can never heal. Live for the right bow because we aren’t promised tomorrow

    I guess kids these days are not taught “sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me”me?

    It seems now it’s words will hurt me you can’t say that to me you’ve disrespected me! Get over it.

    If you are that bothered by something someone says you will have a miserable life and everyone around you will be miserable. As I said get over it. Don’t be so damn sensitive.

    There is racism everywhere & it comes against every race at some place & time. ‘Black Lives Matter’ is racism against non-blacks. The Chinese were persecuted & enslaved in the United States. Jewish people have been persecuted throughout history, Germans were hated during & after the Nazi Holocaust, The Irish, Italians, Mexicans & Slavs have all been treated as second class citizens here. It goes on & on. It’s time we realize that EVERY human is a child of GOD. He loves each & every one of us. He commanded us to Love our neighbors (everyone) as ourselves. God is not a respecter of persons & we should not be either. Get over what happened in the past & move on with forgiveness (another commandment) & hope.
    God Bless EVERYONE🙏🏼❤️👍🏼

    It seems now it’s words are horrible and they hurt me more than anything. I’m so sensitive I can’t stand it if somebody says something to me I don’t like. I have to burn down their city for that.

    People are this sensitive as they are these days need to get over it. Life is tough when people say things to you don’t like.
    Turn the other cheek. No better advice has ever been given than that.

  • janet says:

    I think those who keep racism alive and well use the idea to support their agenda and will continue to do so as long as there’s a benefit attached to doing so. If people start ignoring their rants, jail those who break the law, and just carry on with life, they’ll eventually stop and go away but otherwise, by continuing to buy into this rhetoric, it acts as fuel to keep bringing it to the next lowest level. It’s like giving in to a spoiled child – giving in doesn’t teach the child anything besides acting act works to keep them getting what the want. Nobody does anything without either a benefit or a motive behind it so remove the benefit.

  • Frank Mirenzi says:

    I believe in the sticks and stones statement I am races to some nationality’s but not to any point where I want to hert them I would help them if I fount them needing it but I don’t have to like anyone get a life if you dwell on race obsession’s Find another hobby I like most everyone until you give me a reason to dislike you than I will tolerate you but I won’t forget

  • David Williams says:

    It is racist, but NOT in the way portrayed! The vast majority of RACISTS in this country are in the SOCIALIST COMMIE DEMOCRAT PARTY! This party FOSTERS,SPREADS RACIAL DIVISION FOR ONLY 1 REASON AND THAT IS TO DIMINISH ONESELF IN ASSUMING ABSOLUTE POWER!

  • rottenrollin says:

    O’Connor blew it, and for no good reason.

    Scott’s an Oreo? Black on the outside, white on the inside?

    WELL! The Left has MILLIONS of REVERSE OREOS…..WHITE ON THE OUTSIDE, BLACK ON THE INSIDE.

  • rottenrollin says:

    And O”Connor the Loser should RESIGN COMPLETELY.

  • Mark Hiatt says:

    The Democrats are the racists, proven throughout history

  • Mary says:

    We are NOT a racist country but the radical DEM’s are sure trying very hard to make it that way!!! No unity whatsoever from the Biden administration and how dear fox news say President Trump was the worse President next to Biden.. Give me a freakin brake!!! What plant did he come off of? Trump did a great job on building our country back up and treated all races the same!
    Things that make you go hmmmm!!!
    Praying for God to do a mighty miracle with healing and getting our great nation back before the left destroys us.
    Ps.. I will definitely vote for President Trump again!!! Hands down!!!

  • Max says:

    The total “black” population of the U.S. has not exceeded 12-13% since the mid-1960’s. Of that, only 5% or less are males, and approximately 10% or more of them are incarcerated, whether it be in juvenile or adult facilities. Their self-extinction through murders or abortion only gets worse, yet it’s always someone else’s fault. They have been on the public dole since the 1870’s when in an attempt to help them rise from their slavery past the states and federal government have provided public housing, welfare, free meals at schools, etc. They’re granted millions every year for historic black colleges and universities, and many receive Pell grants to attend college. Like any person, the more you hand them, the more they want or expect, and it continues. They demand inclusion in everything, and thinking to placate them, the media and politicians pander to them. They want reparations, more money, yet don’t think of all they, their parents, grandparents, and family before them have been given in the way of housing, benefits, even cash, that others haven’t received for the past 150 years. Those individuals who strive to better themselves and lift themselves from the masses are then tormented and called out by the rest. “Oreo”, “Uncle Tom” derogatory terms. They even use the “N” word among themselves to denote those who they believe are of a lower caste than themselves. And it’s always the white man’s fault.

  • Ashby says:

    If we are such a racist country, then how did Barrack Obama get elected twice?

  • Doc says:

    EXACTLY Max, very well said!! Ironic how they want to defund the police; but are the FIRST to call 911 in a crisis situation!!! There ARE more black on black murders than white on black!! Welfare WAS created to help people through war times and NOT MEANT TO BE A LIFESTYLE!!! They call whites racist; but then put up a sign at the Floyd site addressed DIRECTLY to whites; VERY RACIST to me!! I had to have BRAIN SURGERY with NO MEDICAL insurance!! When I asked for A LOAN, NOT WELFARE; I was told, “You are a beautiful young lady; but I am sorry, you make too much money and ARE THE WRONG COLOR!!!!!” That is NOT RACIST?????!! I am 1 of 10 kids and my parents NEVER asked for ANYTHING FREE!!! They worked their butts off til my mom died and my dad is STILL WORKING 7 DAYS A WEEK AT 88YO!!!! I PAID my way through brain surgery, college, and NEAR DEATH working 3-4 jobs at a time!! I opened my own company in the basement of an office building and still have 30 years later!!! I BECAME A DOCTOR WHILE RECOVERING FROM 3RD AND 4TH DEGREE BURNS AFTER BEING STRUCK BY LIGHTENING!!!! And I PAID MY WAY AGAIN, even if it meant tossing news papers!!! I dated black professional men before I got married and IT CAN BE DONE!! Doctors, lawyers, police men, small business owners they were and very PROUD AND DESERVING of their careers; it CAN be DONE!!!!! There IS racism in EVERY group and if it does NOT start at home with PROPER EDUCATION, MORALS, and ETHICS; it will NEVER change!!!! It WAS a black man who SOLD a black man first, it WAS DEMONRAT KKK; BUT it was also WHITE MEN, MY GRANDFATHER, who FOUGHT AND DIED in the CIVIL WAR to HELP END SLAVERY!!!!!! So don’t call me racist when I have had it THROWN in my face MORE THAN ONCE!! I congratulate the young men and women getting on Idol and Voice to try to make something of themselves; ANY color!!!!!!

  • Gloria says:

    I was born in 1937, I grew up with a sweet African American little girl, we used to refer to each other as “cousins”. My parents loved her as much as they loved me and I never heard a racial slur from my family about her or her family. As a matter of fact we had several African American neighbors and my family was fine with all of them. I went to school in the 50’s and there were some racial problems but very few. My point is that America is not a racist Country, if we were able to live and love our neighbors then, why not now? All this Political CRAP is just that, our politics nowadays is DISGUSTING! Shame on Biden and his democrap party. And I grew up on the south side of Chicago! Sadly the south side isn’t the same anymore. And just who’s fault is that? Not mine or my family’s!

  • David says:

    Doesn’t surprise me, the democratic party has always been racist, and they’re keeping it alive! Just foing their racist thing. Bidens been a racist uis whole lide, making comments about indian people owning dunkin donuts, supporting Robert Byrd and George Wallace and kammy spent her whole career locking up blacks for very petty crimes. But somehow she was smoking pot while in college listening to Tupac? Just fyi, Tupac wasn’t around then. Thats how you know blm is a fraud, if they cared about racists they would drag those two circus clowns out of the white house.

  • David says:

    I have one question for the racost democratic party. Will they “cancel” him like they do to all of the people that they say are racists, or does he get a pass because they’re racists and they just like calling everyone else racists?

  • David says:

    The funniest part of the whole thing is because Tim Scott has a different bepief, he didn’t display any common sense! The democratic party is truly funny. Afrer biden speaks I always expwct to see a clown on a unicycle juggling. Unless he’s the clown and just can’t juggle?

  • Luis says:

    I believe that the whole racist platform has been created by the Liberal / Radical / Democrats as a tool to divide and conquer our country in preparation for their socialist / communist agenda. People need to realize that this has been the Democrats goal from the Democratic Party’s creation , from their KKK to BLM they’ve always wanted to gain full control of America.

  • Chas says:

    Sadly, the left are teaching our children in schools that the America is a racist country! This seems to be part of their Left wing progressive plan. THE Woke they are now calling it. Canceling this and canceling that….And now the left wants to start teaching our children at even a younger age in kindergarten that the white folk is racist and self giving even before they know what all this means. This is nothing more than brainwashing just like most communist countries do. See the pattern! This MUST 🛑 STOP! Parents, Grandparents, Aunt’s and Uncle’s get involved in your childrens lives at home and in Our school’s before there’s no way back! America is the best and GREATEST country there is to live and is why you see do many people trying to get in legally and illegally! STOP brainwashing our children full of lies, and this must STOP NOW!!!!!

  • BBA says:

    Let’s talk about REAL racism. I used to go into the public housing projects in my area for work related issues and I have been called every name from “cracker” to “white pos” simply for the color of my skin. For ANYONE who thinks racism is only one way you need to go into your majority black housing projects on a warm weekend night and see for yourself what real racism looks like!!

  • Tim Toroian says:

    Living in Texas he should know that Oreos are now made in Mexico. Much of NABISCO is now made in Mexico. It pays to read business sections.
    He should have an “I” or “M” in red on his forehead!
    He is, though, displaying the Democratic Party’s respect for people.

  • Mike says:

    Being a Democrat is a mental disorder, nothing more and nothing less!!!!

  • Chisel says:

    Quit being little bitches, there’s bad on all sides! A fraction of bad people shouldn’t ruin it for the masses of good people! Teach your kids

    I’m 84 years old and was raised in the northern states and I remember a song that we sang all the time, and its verse goes like RED AND YELOW BLCK AND WHITE THEY ARE PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT (JESUS)

  • Bart says:

    The damn democrats use racism to divide us. Everything and every word is twisted to be racist. They keep bringing it up and black people are too damn dumb to realize its the democrats that are really racist. Look at this guys comments. And they don’t resign they just wait till the furor dies down like the governor of Virginia and his second in command that were caught years ago wearing black face but did they resign, hell no. Wake up people.

    If we are such a racist country, then how did Barrack Obama get elected twice?
    Obama is NOT black. He is part Hawaiian, part white, part Muslim, …….Kamala is NOT black – She’s part Jamaican & part white (I think).
    They have several things in common – i.e. socialistic, communistic, treasonous, participants in illegal activities, fraudulent, Anti-American, committers of Treason, demonic, destroyers of America.

  • Lynne Henderson says:

    I am very happy to be a Christian American. I do not like all the shooting that goes on every night. I am a LIGHT for Jesus Christ and therefore do not like darkness or hidden things. God will show ALL. He is our light and our salvation. I encourage people to read The Holy Bible. I can not give as much as I would like because I live on a limited income, but I am standing as a warrior to save our America. Many of my friends and family served in WWII and Viet Nam. lynne

  • grammysam says:

    An “Oreo” is a person who is half black and half white. As there are are only three main races (black, white and yellow). With the mixture of the three… pretty soon, all will be white.

  • SUNFLOWER says:

    America is racist ONLY in the minds of the LEFTIST idiots. Wake up people! Hate, anger, destruction, AND chaos is exactly what the Democrats want. This is their agenda to keep our country suppressed and oppressed, the same way they are using the virus! I think Mr. Scott is one of the smartest people I have heard in quite a while. Our government needs more like him!

  • SUNFLOWER says:

    IF YOU WANT THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT RACISM IN OUR COUNTRY, PLEASE GOOGLE AND WATCH “ BLACK CONSERVATIVE LEADERS DISCUSS HOW THE NRA WAS CREATED BY WHITE PEOPLE TO PROTECT FREED SLAVES”! IT WILL SHOW YOU THAT IT IS LEFTIST THAT ARE TRYING TO SELL AMERICA ON RACISM!!

  • Laura says:

    Tell these racists, black haters, and stupid Democrats to get a life and go pound sand! I have had enough of their stupid shit, and you cannot fix that
