Only a fool would say ‘woke supremacy is as bad as white supremacy’

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt” goes the famous, but disputed, adage. During an interview on Fox News on March 8, Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.) proved it to stunning effect.

The Palmetto State Republican didn’t like how MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said his presence at a recent news conference with his conservative colleagues gave it “the patina of diversity.” That’s fine. The problem is how he responded. “Woke supremacy is as bad as white supremacy,” Scott said after a tirade by host and former South Carolina representative Trey Gowdy. “We need to take that seriously.”

What in the “sunken place”?

“Woke supremacy” ranks up there with that tired crutch of the right known as “cancel culture.”
