Georgia Democratic Lawmaker Gets Caught Lying While Accusing Man Of Racist Rant

0 2,736

On Friday, Georgia State Rep. Erica Thomas (D) decided to go shopping at Publix. She moved from a “slow” checkout lane into the express lane provided for those who have only ten items or less. She claims she had only fifteen or so items, but she is nine-months pregnant and had a child with her. So, she should get an exception evidently because she’s ‘special’. Not so fast.

Then something occurred between her and a man in line at the supermarket. Thomas claims she was “verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had too many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!” The man proceeded to call her a liar which she evidently is.

This whole encounter engendered a viral following on Twitter if you can believe it. #IStandwithErica trended on Twitter. Not impressed.

Thomas’ attorney is activist Gerald Griggs and he does an excellent imitation of Al Sharpton and his race-baiting. He posted a video of a tearful Thomas describing her painful encounter with her white oppressor. It must be seen to be believed. This is a direct slap at President Trump and about as believable as the #MeToo movement.

Celebrities including Patty Arquette, Tom Arnold, Bill de Blasio, Ted Lieu, and Beto O’Rourke jumped in “using the #IStandWithErica hashtag.” Thomas is/was scheduled to share her agonizing story on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday morning. Ted Lieu has already deleted a tweet supporting Thomas after she backtracked on her story.

Patty Arquette: “I’m so disgusted that man harassed you. I am mortified your daughter had to watch that.”

Tom Arnold: “Donald Trump is a disgusting f**king coward whose made it okay for disgusting f**king cowards to bully women. Especially women of color but it started when we allowed Donald Trump & his disgusting base of ignorant racists to threaten & bully Sec Hillary Clinton. #IStandwithErica

Bill de Blasio: “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It begins with a tweet. Then a chant. Now a racist attack on a 9-month pregnant lawmaker and military wife just trying to feed her family. #IStandWithErica

Ted Lieu: “Both @realDonaldTrump and @GOP have grossly underestimated the number of Americans who have experienced the racist “go back” insult. We all know how it hurts. And we are going to vote. I predict a Dem wave in 2020, just like we had in 2018.#IStandwithErica”

Beto O’Rourke: “These are the consequences of a president who foments hate every day—and sees our diversity not as a strength but as a weakness. Erica, thank you for serving your state and thanks to your husband for serving our country. We are better than this, and together, we will prove it. #IStandwithErica”

Bored now. These guys really need some new material. It’s robotic and just plain stupid.

The truth finally started to surface over this whole fiasco. Thomas’ white oppressor spoke to reporters and vehemently denied the allegations. This accused “racist” man turns out to be a “Cuban immigrant and a Democrat who defended “The Squad” against Trump’s “racist” tweets. He told the president to “go back to Germany and his Nazi roots,” and recently posted about his own experiences with “hidden and outright vocal bigotry, ignorance and racism” because his grandmother didn’t speak English, only Spanish.”

Gee, Thomas should have picked her victim a bit better here. Eric Sparkes flat-out told Thomas that she made the accusation for political purposes. He says he’s a Cuban and a lifelong Democrat. Thomas says “No. You are white.” Racist much?

What actually happened was the guy told her to go back to the other lane because she had too many items. She turned that into a politically staged “go back to where you came from” scenario.

From Red State:

“Like the #MeToo movement, all a “person of color” has to do is make an accusation against a white person and they are instantly believed. Democrats, especially celebrities, are quick to pounce on the accused with attacks of their own. The news spreads fast. Suddenly, someone who has done nothing wrong becomes Public Enemy #1.

“This story illustrates the anatomy of a false racial smear and the ease with which one begins and how rapidly it can accelerate.

“If this man did not have a social media history clearly displaying his dislike of Donald Trump and his support for “The Squad” in the latest feud, this story would surely escalate.

“Georgia Rep. Erica Thomas should be forced to resign for her false accusations against this man. But she won’t.

“Here’s another hashtag: #FireEricaThomas”

The drooling media who are eager to keep the “Trump is a racist” narrative going, jumped on the claim from Thomas before checking it out thoroughly. Declaring that “people are really getting out of control with this white privilege,” Thomas said through flowing tears: “This white man comes up to me and says ‘you lazy son of a bitch. You need to go back where you came from.’”

Now, he does admit to calling her a ‘lazy b*tch’ but the rest is for show. “I don’t want to say he said, ‘Go back to your country,’ or ‘Go back to where you came from,'” Thomas said, walking back her initial description of the incident. “But he was making those types of references is what I remember.” Yeah, I bet.

This is straight out of the Democratic playbook. They’ll use any little slight to preen for the cameras and media to aim their attacks at Trump. It’s disgraceful. I love seeing self-loathing leftists go at it but when you get caught lying and playing political gotcha with someone with the same political bent you just make yourself and your whole party look like manipulative, corrupt politicos. Which they are.

Being black, a woman, pregnant, or all of the above doesn’t give you the right to bully your way into a grocery line you are not supposed to be in. It doesn’t give you license to attack others or cry faux tears to make a viral video that your minions spread around for propagandic sympathy and political expediency.

Thomas threw the victim card to promote her agenda. She should be fired for that kind of stunt.
