Nolte: Media Blame Trump for Grocery Store Spat Between Two Democrats


by John Nolte, Breitbart:

Over the weekend, a wretched Georgia state lawmaker named Erica Thomas lied about a grocery store confrontation with a “white man” who told her to “go back to where she came from.”

The man in question, however, Eric Sparkes, came forward to admit he had indeed had a confrontation with Thomas but that he never told her to “go back” and that he is Cuban and that he is a Democrat who does not support President Trump.

What’s more, he says he probably voted for Thomas because he lives in her district.

“Her words stating on Twitter and on video stating that I told her she needs to go back to where she came from aren’t true,” Sparkes said on-camera with Thomas standing just a few feet away. “I am Cuban. I am not white. I am white, but I am Cuban.”

Sparkes did admit he called Thomas a “bitch” after he confronted her about breaking the rules about the number of items you can check out with at the express lane in Publix.

But in her original Facebook post, a crying Thomas told her followers that: “He said, ‘I don’t care. You’re a lazy son of a b—-. You need to get the f— out of here. Go back where you came from. … It hurt me so bad because everything in me just wanted to tell him who I am. But I couldn’t get anything out.”

However, Thomas later admitted she lied in that Facebook post and in her Twitter post.

“I don’t want to say he said ‘go back to your country or go back to where you came from,’” she admitted in an interview later, along with the fact that she told him to “Go back.”

“So you don’t remember exactly what he said?” the reporter asks.
