A Democrat US Senate candidate from South Carolina is in deep water after she was recorded saying white people need to be kept under control.
No matter where you look in the Democrat party you will find comments like the ones you are about to hear. If ANY Republican had said anything close to this it would be plastered on every social media post, and every news outlet would be talking about it. But in this instance members of the Democrat party are asking this Senate Candidate to withdraw from the race.
Daily Wire. Top Democrats in South Carolina are urging the party’s U.S. Senate candidate, state Rep. Krystle Matthews, to drop out of her race against Sen. Tim Scott after an audio recording of her was released that showed her making racist remarks about white people.
The conservative activist group Project Veritas released a video of Matthews conversing with an undercover operative in a restaurant. According to Matthews, she represents a “mostly white” district as a state representative, and that she keeps white people “under my thumb” or else “they get out of control”.”
Let’s hear what she had to say.
Following her exposure as a racist, many from her own party are calling for her to drop from the race.
Associated Press reports. On Thursday, Democrats including gubernatorial nominee Joe Cunningham said he concurred with state Rep. Justin Bamberg, who in an op-ed published online called Matthews “toxic.”
“The minority community, including myself, would be up in arms if any of our white counterparts had said the same thing about blacks,” Bamberg concluded.
Cunningham told AP that Matthews’ comments have no place in our political discourse, adding that “the Democratic Party cannot and should not tolerate such behavior from our elected officials and candidates.”
Brad Hutto, the Democratic leader in that chamber and the party’s nominee to challenge Sen. Lindsey Graham in 2014 — echoed Cunningham’s comments about Matthews’ Senate bid, telling AP, “When candidates of either party start making irresponsible statements, beyond what party they’re from, they need to reevaluate their candidacy, and that’s what needs to happen here.”
That lady is a walking talking piece of human trash. Anyone with viewpoints like that has zero place in being an elected official.
