Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) targeted Sen. Dick Durbin, MSNBC commentator Joy Reid and other Democrats in a message questioning their so-called policy of “tolerance” and “inclusion.”

Last year, Sen. Durbin apologized to Tim Scott after dismissing South Carolina Republican’s police reform bill as a “token, half-hearted approach.”

Meanwhile, Joy Reid recently faced backlash for disparaging Sen. Scott as giving Republicans “patina of diversity.”

Sen. Scott — who is up for re-election in 2022 — then called on his supporters to “stand up for conservative principles” by supporting him in next year’s contest.

In a video posted to Twitter, Sen. Scott stated as follows:

“The Democrats tell me that they’re the party of inclusion, diversity, tolerance. Well, why are they so intolerant of an African American conservative who wants to just tell the truth?”

“What happened to the party of inclusion and diversity when it comes to conservatives who happen to be Black or Hispanic, who want to speak the truth?

“Why is that not acceptable to people like Dick Durbin who wants to say ‘token,’ or Joy Reid who wants to say ‘patina of diversity’? Why is it okay for them to call us names and be ‘woke’? I don’t understand it.

“Please help us, as conservatives, stand up for conservative principles by supporting me. Thank you so much. God bless you. We need your help.” Video Below
