Leftists go on Unhinged Bigoted Rants at Minority RNC Speakers

Vile attacks on Melania Trump, Tim Scott, and Madison Cawthorn lit up Twitter during and after the RNC.

The 2020 Republican National Convention was filled with inspirational speakers, including minorities, women, and victims of left-wing violence such as Mark and Patricia McCloskey. The Left wasted no time in attempting to smear many of the speakers, as well as posting offensive remarks on Twitter.

The main targets of hate were President Trump’s wife, Melania, Republican Senator Tim Scott, and South Carolina Republican nominee Madison Cawthorn.

Melania Trump

Melania Trump’s speech at the RNC was filled with sympathy and prayers for people who have been effected by the coronavirus, and victims of the riots. She also spoke about motherhood, drug addiction, and violence. Her speech has been described by many as compassionate.

Leftists on Twitter and in the media refused to focus on the positive message, and instead reported on her outfit, her marriage, and her accent.

Singer, actress, and anti-Trump radical Bette Midler’s remarks were the most egregious, first referring to Melania Trump as an illegal alien. Then, she complained that Melania, who actually speaks six languages, “can’t speak English”.

Midler’s final insult was insinuating that Melania was a mail-order bride, tweeting: “I’m surprised Trump wants to destroy the #PostOffice. He got all his wives from it.”

Twitter blew up with responses from both sides of the aisle condemning the blatant bigotry of her statements. Liberals called her out for not practicing the feminism that she preaches, and for xenophobia.

Conservatives pointed out how tactless and crude her insults were.

Ben Shapiro replied: “No, she’s just speaking with an accent. You, however, are a fool in any language.”

Brandon Morse responded to Midler’s comments on Twitter:

Senator Tim Scott

Republican Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina, ended the first night of the RNC with a hopeful speech about how everyone has the opportunity to succeed in this country through hard work. His most quoted moment was when he stated that his family went from “cotton to Congress in one lifetime.”

After his speech, Twitter was inundated with vile comments, calling Scott an ‘Uncle Tom’, and saying that he had a “plantation Negro slave grin on his face”.

‘Uncle Tom’ is a slur that refers to “a black man considered to be excessively obedient or servile to white people”.

A Democrat Representative even liked a comment stating that Tim Scott “might as well be” white.

Madison Cawthorn

Madison Cawthorn, a Republican nominee for Congress in South Carolina, spoke at the RNC from his wheelchair, as he is partially paralyzed from a car accident in 2014. In his speech, he urged Americans to only “kneel before God, but stand for our flag” and to not cower to a mob.

He ended his speech by stating: “Be a radical for liberty and be a radical for our republic for which I stand, one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.” As he spoke these words, he used a walker to stand from his wheelchair.

PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor decided that this act of strength was somehow an act against Black Lives Matter, although the movement was not mentioned anywhere in that moment.

Mollie Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist, spoke about the absurd comment, stating: “If you thought, ‘certainly nobody could attack this man in a wheelchair for standing up at the end of his speech,’ you haven’t met our completely insane White House press corps, currently viciously attacking a paralyzed man for not sharing their far-left political views.”

Attorney and National Review contributor Jeff Blehar responded to Alcindor on Twitter:
