Scott rings

Scott made the comment when speaking of the backlash he had for his response to Joe Biden’s State of the Union address.

“What I learned though, Guy, is that there is a conspiracy to stop conservative values ​​from seeping into poorer hallways and minority communities, and they heard what I heard. said and they saw him as a threat, ”Scott said.

“And so, they responded with an unusual vitriol and I’m used to very high levels of pain and misery and agony in response to the insanity of the left. But here’s the truth… America just isn’t a racist country. To deny that is to deny reality, ”he added. “Have we had race issues and is there racism in our country?

“The liberal elites want to seize power by using the issue of race and the issue of control to determine the future of this nation,” he added. “I believe that too often their goal is not to solve racial issues of the past – or present, but to gain more power by talking about it. This is one of the reasons why they spend 90% of their time in the rearview mirror and only 10% of their time in the windshield.

Scott talks about police reform

In that same interview, Scott also said he was “cautiously optimistic” about the prospects for passing bipartisan police reform law in the near future.

“I’m cautiously optimistic if they live within the parameters I’ve set, number one, we won’t demonize law enforcement,” Scott said. “Qualified immunity for their individual responsibility cannot be on the table.”

“It is too difficult to understand the life, the day in the life of an officer for us to negotiate on his individual responsibility,” he continued. “Number two, we must never sever the fused relationship between communities of color and the officers of character who come to respond to crises. If we keep these two pillars out of this conversation, we have a good chance of finding a solution. “

“The Democrats, if the Democrats continue to fight to fund the police, if they continue to fight to demonize the police, they have continued to ignore the real need for law enforcement,” Scott added. “You will see Portland, New York, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, as classic examples of what happens when you demonize and ignore, as well as when you fund the police. Spikes in violent crime, murders, spikes and all the other negative principles and indicators are all going in the wrong direction. “
