2019.07.19 Erica Thomas (D)
To play off of anti-Trumpism, Georgia Democrat and State Rep (Erica Thomas) claimed in a sobbing twitter post, that at a Publix Grocery store, a “white man” called her a “lazy son of a bitch” and told her to “go back to where she came from" and that “People are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff.” Then to her surprise, Eric Sparkes, the accused man who is an anti-Trump, far-left, AOC supporting Cuban (not white), stepped forward and called bullshit. He explained that she had 20 items in the express lane limited for 10 (and there were two other lanes open). He complained to the store associates, but they told him to tell her... so he did so politely. When he did that, witnesses and store videos seen to corroborate that SHE got in his face and got confrontational and then SHE told HIM to "go back where he came from", repeatedly... and then he called her a "lazy bitch" for holding everyone else up and making a scene. But Eric never told Erica to "go back to where you came from" and she was lying/grandstanding. If racism is such a big problem in America, why does the left keep getting caught making up examples of it? FakeFactCheck outlet Snopes misleads their readers on what happened, by not fact checking the claim that Erica Thomas made, but by fact checking satire site Babylon Bee's post that claimed it happened at a Chick-fil-a, and then leaving out a ton of context that would make her look bad from their explanation. So they did correctly say that the Bee story was false, but only readers far more cautious than 99% of Democrats would notice that bait-and-switch, and any that read the omitted context snopes version of events wouldn't know about a bunch of evidence that makes Erica and the Democrats/media look bad.
Even on the Interview you can see that he's actually fairly mild mannered and deferential and she's aggressive and outgoing. So the story of her getting in his face because she was called on her privileged attitude seems believable -- and is far more believable than a stranger telling a black woman to go back to where she came from (a non-sensical attack), out of the blue, as was her initial story.
The Democrat Candidates, Robert "Beta" O'Rourke and Bill de Blasio, fell over themselves to turn molehills into mountains, showing how divisive they are.
The FakeHate grievance industry is so broad, that they are branching out, and have to have multiple divisions. Hey, you get what you incentivize. and the virtue signaling left rewards victimhood -- so people are lining up to join in. This is just the subset of FakeHate that is specifically about fake racial crimes. more...
