All Americans have something historical to celebrate this week. However, ignorance prevents some of us from applauding the election of Tim Scott and Mia Love last Tuesday. Scott is the first black elected to the United State Senate from South Carolina since Reconstruction (1865) and she is the first black Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. Where’s the parade? Where are the congratulations from the Congressional Black Caucus? Where’s the NAACP? This should be Front Page in every major newspaper in America but it is not because they are both Republicans. These elections are as historic as the election of President Barack Obama. Unfortunately, the country has been robbed of the celebration by liberal media bias.

This is a victory of character, victory over our country’s racial history and the product of hard work. This is monumental stuff. Sadly, some Americans have been brainwashed.
