Republican South Carolina Senator   Lindsey Graham   got a lot of attention when he said that young Black people and immigrants can “go anywhere” in South Carolina, but added “you just need to be conservative, not liberal.”

Graham is facing intense social media reaction to a clip, taken from a South Carolina Senate   forum   that was hastily changed from a debate with Democratic challenger   Jaime Harrison   when Graham   refused to be tested   for COVID-19, in which he made those remarks.

What in the fuck? Note that the question asked was, “How will you address civil unrest in South Carolina?”   https://t.co/AY6LZuyiHZ

That video has gone viral, garnering more than 2.5 million views.

The clip is part of a lengthy response to a question from   Carolyn Murray   of NBC affiliate WCDB, who asked him about civil unrest. Graham appeared to be arguing that race is not a barrier to success in South Carolina, citing Nikki Haley and Senator Tim Scott as examples.

Watch the full clip above via WLTX.

He’s exactly right!  Immigrants and African Americans who are conservative are successful.  Conservatives welcome people of all races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, and any other identifying group to our cause.  That South Carolina elected an Asian American daughter of immigrants and an African American man to state wide office who are conservatives is proof of that.

LOL, and the millions more that are dems are successful as well.

Conservatives welcome people of all races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, and any other identifying group to our cause.

Why are there so few minorities in the republican party?

That South Carolina elected an Asian American daughter of immigrants and an African American man to state wide office who are conservatives is proof of that.  

The Dems have had a black president, currently a Black/Asian women running as VP, and the number of Democratic minority members of congress far exceeds the Republican numbers.

But you surly can believe your own nonsense.

So you approve of the idea that Americans' freedom of movement should be restricted according to political ideology ???

How patriotic ! /s

His answers are bizarre at best. Between this and refusing to be tested for COVID before his debate with Harrison seems he was some kind of death wish (as his political life) going on.

Perhaps he forgot about the killings at the Emanual Church in Charleston.

He is a moron that needs to be voted out. He looked like an idiot in the one debate he did do. He was made a fool of.

Now refusing to get tested...What are you so afraid of?

Here is my take on it. If he is tested and test positive that would mean that he has to be quarantined and could not return to the senate to try and push the SCOTUS nominee through with less than a month to go before the election.

Wouldn't surprise me. Doesn't care if others get infected.

I just wish the voters of the state would see him for what he is and kick him out.

Can't stand him.

As a politician, you can only talk out of both sides of your mouth for so long before the voters show you the door.  This loser is heading for the exit.  He might actually be one that gets whacked by the door on his way out.

He has been in the Senate since 2003. Don't underestimate him.

, you said black folks can go anywhere in SC as long as they're conservative and not liberal. Shameful.
While we're on this topic, you should know gay people can go anywhere publicly in my state of CA, as long as they're out and proud, not closeted and afraid.
