See What Really Happened to Democrat in 'Racist' Attack
Unfortunately, for Thomas, the video doesn't match up with her racially-charged account. (Daily Wire)
In official statements, social media posts, and media conferences, Thomas claimed she was the victim of a "violent action," "feared for her life," and lamented the supposed "white privilege" fueling the attack. The lawmaker tied the alleged incident to President Donald Trump's "go back" tweets.
"People are getting really out of control with this — with this white privilege stuff," she said in Facebook video following the incident, sobbing uncontrollably. "I'm at the grocery store … and this white man comes up to me and says, 'You lazy son of a b****, you need to go back where you came from.['] … And it hurt me so bad."
Thomas claimed all she "could tell him was please leave me alone."
"And my child was just sitting there, and she said, 'Mama, why would he call you that, why would he do that?' I can't even explain to her why he had so much hate in his heart," added the Democrat.
The silent footage shows Thomas exploding at the "white man" – a self-described Hispanic Democrat named Eric Sparks after he approached her.
The grocery store manager also disputed Thomas' claims.
