McCaskill says Rep. Scott's racism charge 'irresponsible'
Sen. Claire McCaskill -- who went through a pretty tough town hall herself today -- told CNN tonight that it was "irresponsible" for Democratic Rep. David Scott to blame racism for some of the town hall anger across the nation.
"I think that is irresponsible to say," McCaskill said on Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday night. "There may be individual instances of that but there are a whole lot of people who are frustrated ... but I'm not sure if it would be accurate to make that about race."
Scott, who is black, had a fairly confrontational town hall earlier this week where he shouted back at a doctor in the audience who challenged him. The next day the sign for Scott's Atlanta area office had a swastika painted on it.
WHEN A BLACK MAN...
Gets a SWASTIKA painted on his office door...
and gets mail that calls him a NIGGA...
I think he knows RACISM when he sees it.
So, go somewhere and sit your ass on down.
Hell no...I don't go for the okeydoke of racism only being valid when WHITE people think that it's happened.
David Scott has been BLACK IN AMERICA longer than 3 weeks.
He KNOWS racism when he sees it.
And RACISM is all over this 'protesting' at town halls on healthcare.
