BREAKING NEWS – Columbia, South Carolina – South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, who officially launched his Republican presidential primary bid, responded to racially charged attacks by panelists on ABC’s “The View,” saying the best way to disprove their lies is through action.

On the left-leaning talk show, “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg suggested Scott has “Clarence Thomas syndrome.” Thomas, a conservative U.S. Supreme Court justice from neighboring Georgia, has long been attacked by the left for not toeing what they believe is the proper jurisprudential line based on his skin color.

“Meekness is not weakness. I believe in the Gospel. I believe Matthew 5:44 says ‘Love your enemies’ — [but] if you break in my house, I also believe in the Second Amendment’,” Scott told host Trey Gowdy, a fellow South Carolinian.

“I believe in the bible too,” stated Goldberg’s co-host Sunny Hostin. “However, I only believe in it, as long the good book has the proper inner city/hood modifications.”
