"Me telling you to 'Go back where you came from. Did I say that? Is it on video?.... I called you a lazy b-i-t-c-h. That's the worst thing I said."

"This woman is playing the victim for political purposes because she is a state legislator. I'm a Democrat and will vote Democrat for the rest of my life, so call me whatever you want to believe. For her political purposes, make it black, white, brown, whatever. It is untrue."

I'm reading "State lawmaker, man she accused of verbally harassing her confront each other" (WSB-TV Atlanta).

I got there via Andy Ngo ("Media machine has been blowing up story of @itsericathomas, who claims a racist white man told her to 'go back where you came from.' Well, he returns during her presser to deny allegation. He says he’s a Democrat & she’s embellishing story for attention"). Erica Thomas is a member of the Georgia House of Representatives.

Here's the raw video:

“Emigrants…coming here, are not to expect favors from the governments. …They come to a life of independence, but to a life of labor—and, if they cannot accommodate themselves to the character, moral, political, and physical, of this country, with all its compensating balances of good and evil, the Atlantic is always open to them, to return to the land of their nativity and their fathers.”–Pres. John Quincy Adams

He IS a Dem. And he's very anti-Trump. There is clearly something in the water in Atlanta. Between this clown and Stacy Adams, the racist calling card is being played out at every table. If I were playing, I'd ask for a new deck. But I'm not playing.

Ann Althouse said...

"But if there were 2 empty lanes, why didn't he go to the empty one?"

That question is asked and answered in the video.

The answer is, he did. He bought his stuff, then asked some store employee what could be done about people going through the express line with more than 10 items. He was told the store's policy is to do absolutely nothing, and it's up to the other customers. The idea seems to be that social pressure is the only enforcement. So he then decides to go up to her and say something. At the end of the video, he expresses disturbance with people who selfishly violate social norms. He seems to have decided that he needs to say something, so he went over to her to apply the social pressure.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

I see people abusing the express lane all the time. I rarely do anything about it. File under - ugh, but so what? not worth my time.

At Whole Foods, you can ask for a manager to stop the theft of hot and cold -bar food, but they won't do a damn thing about it.

Someone can place their whole yucky mouth in the tabbouleh salad, and the staff refuse to stop it. They put up with it. Why? Really - I'm asking. Why?

Our societal structure of fairness and laws goes out the window at a grocery store.

doctrev said...

I too have seen that South Park, rhhardin. Most people have at least heard the speech, which is why Scott Adams' attempt to be cute is probably going to get him in trouble with his fellow Californians.

Still, this open black supremacy is interesting because it makes white people constantly more angry and frustrated with the notion that some talentless mooch can accuse them of racism, then BAM. Fired, ostracized, hounded by packs of psychotics demanding their death. People weren't yelling "Go back where you came from" at random black people at the start of the Obama Administration, they actually had hope that racial relations would openly improve. After Trayvon, and Ferguson, and countless other race skirmishes, the response of white America was to elect Donald Trump. As a signal, it's pretty intense. The step up from that is, "Damn right you should go back to Africa," even if their family has been here since the 18th century.

https://theothermccain.com/2019/07/22/oikophobia-and-nevertrump-how-can-we-secure-the-blessings-of-liberty/

I don't need to belabor what the steps up from that are.

MikeR said...

"Media machine has been blowing up story..." Nah - she got real lucky. The story fell apart before the usual suspects got a chance to blow it up very far. She could have Jussie Smolletted herself if she had had more time to do it. By now I doubt the media wants to touch it.
The guy involved is such an unsympathetic lefty that he might have realized that. He _ran_ out there to get interviewed, before she really got started. I don't really believe he did it to save her, but that is what happened.

bagoh20 said...

Funny to watch the video together. She towers over him.

Ann Althouse said...

He also says he didn't know she was pregnant... and she says she's 9 months pregnant. I understand that. Never assume someone is pregnant.

She is much larger than him. It's strange that he decided to confront her. Who does that?

Too many items in the express lane... everyone can identify with the frustration of the failure to uphold social norms... but he had open lanes so it had no effect on him. His violation of the norm of saying nothing is a little hard to identify with. But then she went public humiliating him, and she's a govt official and he's a nobody. That's an over-the-top violation of a norm.

It's a crazy spiral of norm violation.

rcocean said...

"At Whole Foods, you can ask for a manager to stop the theft of hot and cold -bar food, but they won't do a damn thing about it."

What do you mean by "theft"? Frankly, i never eat anything cold at a food bar. You don't know who's touched it or breathed on it. If i eat anything hot, i reached way in the back to get food that is possibly OK. But even then I feel like i'm taking my life in my hands.

Fernandistein said...

She actually had the nerve to call the police on some guy who rightfully called her out about her selfish, anti-social abuse of a grocery store's facilities.

That's almost as bad as the Michigan Medical school alerting the FBI about a fishing knot.

The crooked bitch speaks: "This white man comes up and says..."

How dare that white man come up and say something.

Some people are rule crazy. they will get upset if you have 11 items in a 10 item express lane. My rule is 5 over. If someone has 16 items, i will complain. Assuming I can't go to another lane.

He's a Democrat. It's the new Antifa way, How could he know that she was a higher rank in the victim/racial spoils system ?

Besides, if she's so fat nobody sees she's pregnant, he probably risked his life complaining. She could have fallen on him.

Look at her. Can you tell she's 9 months pregnant?

gspencer said...

You do have to choose your battles. No, I wouldn't have chosen this one, especially when I wasn't held up. He got out of the store quickly by using one of the open cashiers. That he left the store, thought about it, and went back in to speak with her means he wanted to get something off his chest.

Confronting tall, overweight people when you're not the equal is size is something not recommending. At this situation shows why. This person has a HUGE chip on her shoulders; she reads racism into everything. She doesn't realize it yet, and may never will, that her behavior and accusations only cement in people's minds the stereotypes. Many times the stereotypes are very accurate.

Jarby said...

Confronting rude and inconsiderate strangers in public is rarely worth it. They almost always KNOW they are being rude and inconsiderate--they just don't care, so confronting them gives them an excuse to make themselves victims. They've been "attacked!" "Berated!" "Targeted" because they are (insert category here).

Other times, and I've seen this happen, a stranger may SEEM like they are being rude/inconsiderate, but they are actually in the midst of some emergency or unavoidable situation. Confronting such people only causes them embarrassment on top of whatever tragedy they are dealing with.

This lady is terrible. But I would've kept my mouth shut.

rhhardin said...

I've seen people in handicapped shopping carts ask for the attendant to scan items for them in the u-scan lanes.

Fernandistein said...

He says he's Hispanic and not white. (He also says that he is white, and I think I understand what he means.)

"Hispanic" just indicates some association with a country wherein they speak Spanish - like Spain. So it has nothing to do with race, although it's often misused to indicate race because the MSM and their ilk typically won't use the correct word for most people from Central and South America, namely "mestizo". A la "La Raza".

My two friends from Mexico are officially "Hispanic", although neither would ever use that stupid word, despite being genetically Jewish and German.

The guy in question certainly looks white, but it's probably irrelevant unless you're a whiny dishonest black woman.

EDH said...

Wasn't he the guy in the bagel store?

Rick said...

Some people are rule crazy. They will get upset if you have 11 items in a 10 item express lane.

In my area stores resolve this by changing the signs to "about 15 items...". But I routinely see people in line with full carts.

This will eventually be resolved by making all the quick checkouts self-check.

And that's why dishonest hacks like Rachel Donezal and Liawatha Warren try to pass themselves off as minorities---to cash in on those privileges while at the same time whining about "oppression" from the white majority.

It is a sign of racial progress that activists have to invent new slights in order to keep the White Guilt Express rolling.

Do I get this right? The man is exonerated of racism if he just called the woman a "lazy bitch" as long as he didn't say "go back." Sigh.

I've always thought there is a huge misconception in some people's minds concerning the 10 items or less lanes at the supermarket. If you are buying $100 to $200 worth of groceries, there is nothing more annoying than being stuck behind several people who are just buying a few items. You're the better customer for the store, you get the favorable treatment, that's how a free market works. And you shouldn't have to suffer the ridiculous impatient fools behind you in line who think their few items entitles them to cut in front of you.

Now the store plays a little game of calling the 10 items or less lane the "express" lane, in order to entice the cheapskates to stand in the longer but ostensibly faster moving line and out of the way of their better customers. But shouldn't the better customers be able to choose any lane they want? The cheapskate shoppers see no problem to their doing that.

I've been in the 10 items or less lane many times. I know I'm free riding on the grocery story pricing. If I want convenience, I go to a convenience store and pay more.

Now I will admit that it is unfair to the other good customers to use the express lane when you have more than 10 items, as the good customers have a collective interest in promoting the idea that the express lane is faster for the cheapskate shoppers.

"cheapskates"

I always knew you were a bit of a dope but this is ridiculous.

Anyone who needs just a few items from a grocery store is a "cheapskate"?

False claim of racism -- what a surprise.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Two Cobb county Democrats going after each other--I read the original article and laughed, hard, when I saw the second video (with both of them) shot from her side showing her TOWERING over the guy. She gets loud, points her finger in his face, etc....damn funny.

Today someone retweeted her saying how excited she was to meet Jessie Smollett a while back when he was coming to Atlanta (before his "attack" I'm pretty sure).

But yeah, this short Cuban-American Democrat (who has himself made numerous posts about how awful and racist President Trump is) definitely told her to "go back to where you came from" even though she is now backing down from making that exact claim.

Watching the video it's just impossible to believe she actually acted like a "b-word," so he must be crazy and/or racist! Solid entertainment.

Goddess of the Classroom said...

Rude people never respond to counter rudeness, but they might just feel a little shame when gently confronted with polite information, for instance:

(with a smile) Oh, I guess you didn't notice this was an express lane; may I please go in front of you with my (fewer than limit) items?

If the rude person responds rudely, raised eyebrows and a calm, "I understand; bless your heart" then making eye contact with the cashier is immensely satisfying.

something is off mentally with him. Mature adults don't confront mothers with kids in stores and swear at them. If I was her, I would have immediately gone to a store employee to ask for help & get my kids away from him & his behaviour. But it would not be necessary to call the police unless he continued to be a possible threat.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

MikeR said..."Media machine has been blowing up story..." Nah - she got real lucky.

Counterpoint: the original story (before the various walk-backs and him getting on the news segment) was the top Twitter Trending Moment (or whatever it's called, on the banner at the top) for most of a full day. So that's at least one small part of the Media working to promote the story.

Twitter has a grossly outsized influence on Media coverage not because a lot of normal/nice centrist people read Twitter but because most of the Media personalities who actually deliver the news (anchors, producers, reporters, etc) are themselves Twitter junkies. That has significant distortionary effects--you're soon going to see more smart Democrats start talking up the difference between the Twitter Left and the general US population and the need to appeal to the latter even if it pisses off the former. The "Squad" as an example is wildly popular on Twitter but their ideas, such as they are, poll very poorly nationwide...but look at the coverage!

The interesting thing about this story is that he showed up to tell his side of the story at the "interview" (which was really more of a press conference) in front of the store.

From my twitter feed it appeared that the Shaun King's of the world were ready to blame Publix for this incident, as the man had left and his identity was not known. Have to go where the money is after all. And an unknown racist is a great foil for the narrative.

Unfortunately for her the "racist" showed up to defend himself. And instead of being a Trump loving white nationalist, he's a hispanic(?) anti-trumper. Narrative fail.

In the video you can see her berate him for seeking his "5 minutes of fame". That's the tell that she's mad he's there to refute the story.

We have 15 items or less here. What I find annoying is when there are two or three people in the express lane and I’m in a regular lane waiting for the person in front of me to finish. Then someone will get behind with with five or six items and sigh loudly. The express lane would be quicker than I will, but the person just doesn’t want to have to wait at all. They want me to smile and let them go first. Elderly, someone with an obviously sick child, a confused child... please go before me. Someone who just thinks their time is more valuable then mine forget it.

Inga: "True. There are some of those types who comment here too."

True again.

Those types tend towards massive bizarre conspiracy theories based on transparently hoax dossiers and make moronic gang rape leader accusations against innocent men.

What's worse about these types is even when the truth is made plain to them by members of their own lunatic fringe who are a tad more reality-based these idiots still run with their conspiracy theories and false accusations.

For instance, on Althouseblog, Inga still believes 100% in the thoroughly discredited hoax dossier AND still believes that Brett Kavanaugh was a gang rape leader for decades.

If you don't believe that, I encourage you to ask her yourself.

Hilarity is sure to ensue.

Inga: "Oh good grief. A shopping lane dispute gets personal. Just why was this a big deal?"

Leftists and dems are desperate for racial incidents they can blame on Trump. The problem is there aren't near enough racial incidents occurring to advance the lefty narrative so leftists, the same type of leftists who make false accusations of gang rape against innocent men (like yourself), have to manufacture "racial incidents" and/or hype minor events into earth-shattering events.

Very similar to how you, Inga, and all your lefty pals attacked innocent Catholic High School students with your vicious racialist lies and even attempted to destroy the academic prospects of these innocent students and threatened them with violence.

Lots of little dogs manly yapping in this thread. This guy just let his inner Becky loose and he ran across more than he bargained for.

It’s too bad it escalated the way it did, I’m sure her children learned a valuable lesson about effete little white men.

Birches said...

Effete, really?

wwww said...

"Wwww he didn't cuss at her until she yelled at him. He said he was very polite at first."

Well that puts a different spin on it, and maybe that's how it went down. I can't see him as a reliable narrator regarding his adult maturity if he swore at someone in front of her kids. And if it's during the day at the grocery store there's lots of kids around. Swearing is not something a mentally hinged person would do. But obviously she should not have yelled and it's particularly bad because her kids were around.

If she yelled, a mature adult would withdraw from the situation. Not escalate. It's a public grocery store for goodness sake. Something's off.

Inga: "I’m sure her children learned a valuable lesson about effete little white men."

I’m sure her children learned a valuable lesson about effete little lifelong democrat white men.

For some reason you keep leaving that key part out.

I wonder why that is?

Not to worry, you aren't the worst of the left/dems/LLR's lying about this incident today. The Guardian actually labeled the insane dem woman a "republican".

By "accident", no doubt.

Yes effete. What man would make a big deal out of a woman with children who misuses the shopping isle meant for 3 items or less. Really?? Was it THAT important? What a Becky.

Drago said...

Go ahead Inga. Just say it: It was a little hispanic "chihuahua" lifelong democrat man that did this.

LOL

You can't even do that, can you?

Too funny.

Drago said...

Seriously, we are only about 10 hours away from Inga calling the lifelong democrat guy a republican.

In every instance.

Unless a dem is involved, then all of a sudden party affiliation either doesn't matter at all OR the dem is "accidently" labeled a republican.

In this case, we will also soon see the "white hispanic" label resurrected.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Inga- a lawmaker lied about what this guy actually said. You ok with that?”

No. But nevertheless he is an obnoxious little Becky who caused an uproar in front of the woman’s children and the rest of the store.

Drago said...

Inga: "Jon Boy, you sure are taking this seriously. Did a mean Democrat touch you in a bad way? Show us on the doll where the bad Democrat hurt you"

Ah yes.

The inevitable deflection.

This always occurs when Inga cannot address the salient points.

Similar to yesterday when she demostrated herself completely incapable of actually listing the policy differences between Warren/Bernie and those on the dem side who are a "bit more radical" (LOL, yes, Inga actually wrote that about full blown marxist commies: "a bit more radical")

You know, just a tad. Just a smidge. Just an iota.

LOL

Char Char Binks said...

She claims to be 9 months pregnant, but she looks 12 months pregnant. How can he expect her to know she has more than 10 items when the store has a "no shoes, no service" policy?

Unknown said...

I gonna' wager she parked in a handicapped spot too.

Drago said...

Inga: "No. But nevertheless he is an obnoxious little Becky who caused an uproar in front of the woman’s children and the rest of the store."

"yes", Inga is okay with this as it has been the primary modus operandi for the left for a hundred years.

Dave Begley said...

The correct grammar is "ten items or fewer" not "not ten items or less."

That's the real crime here.

walter said...

If he's a "Becky" for standing up against her highly embellished accusations and publicity seeking, what hip term does she get from you, Inga?

Char Char Binks said...

Who would call a woman a "son of a bitch" when you can simply go straight to "bitch"?

wwww said...

Seriously why is the thread going off the rails about this?

It's obvious that:

(1) Mature adults should not swear in front of kids in grocery stores. (2) Mature adults should not swear on threads in blogs.

It's worse to swear in front of strange kids in grocery stores, but both things are weird. If any of us were in public and saw someone swearing at someone else, we would wonder if the person was mentally off. It's not acceptable or behaviour typical of mature adults.

Earnest Prole said...

Twitter makes us stupid.

Dave Begley said...

Below is from NPR. That settles it! Holy writ.

"An admittedly unscientific question we posed online indicates that the "or less" crowd outnumbers the "or fewer" folks. Of the 8,390 people who responded:

-- 59.4 percent agreed that a sign saying "10 items or less" is something "only the fussiest of fussbudgets would worry about."

-- 40.6 percent felt that such a sign is a "grammatical error that shouldn't be tolerated and makes you want to shop elsewhere." (We suspect they realized our line about wanting to shop elsewhere was an exaggeration.)

Should the majority rule?

William Safire, the "On Language" columnist for The New York Times, came down firmly against signs that say "or less." In 1988, he cheered when Safeway Stores joined the "or fewer" side.

"The most power-intensive moment in the history of this column came when Safeway Stores was criticized here for 'Express Lane — Ten Items or Less' and promptly rectified the mistake," Safire wrote.

It's hard to argue against the legendary Safire (who died in 2009)."

walter said...

Scenario reminds me of:

"Janet Mcdonald

I was going to the movies with a friend of mine from Yale who is black also. And there was a long line. And we were like, let's jump the line. These white people, they're going to be scared of us. We'll just go and jump the line. We'll get to the front of the line. So, of course, you know, we walked up to the front of the line, like, yeah, you want to try me? I'm black. That usually works in New York.

These people were ready to rip our hair out. And they were white. I couldn't believe it. And they were like, in French, what are you doing? The line starts back there. You can't just walk to the front of the line. They were, like, ready to kick our butts. I was shocked. I'm like, these are white people, and they're not scared of us?

That's when I realized I wasn't in Kansas anymore. And I liked it. I mean, of course, it was kind of humiliating, because you know, we're supposed to be the intimidating, scary ones. And then all these French bitches in high heels were threatening us. And they were in our faces. And it made me realize that the whole black-white game just doesn't work outside of the United States.

Because white people aren't afraid of you here. And at the same time, they don't hate you, because that sort of goes together. So I'll take it. I'll wait on line. Now I don't dare jump lines. So that opened my eyes."

Marcus said...

My very simple solution to the Express Lane issue. Program the cash registers not to be able to ring up more than 10 items (okay, 11) in a single transaction except with a manager override. Of course, the pussy managers (of both sexes) will do it without saying anything to the offenders. Maybe the customers forced to wait will call those transgressors "lazy bitches". Okay with me. Next on my Old Man Shakes His Fist At The Sky List: some way to prevent people from exiting the doors marked "Enter" and vice versa. Electric shocks?

No, he’s a Becky for making a big deal about a pregnant woman shopping with her children who had too many items in a 10 items or “fewer” aisle. Really? Why? Ridiculous.

Oh, so because you know a republican senator then that negates the reality of republican families being attacked in restaurants in DC.

Nice try wwww, but you'll have to do a little better than that to deflect from what your lefty pals have been up to.

The left tried to nationalize it because it fed their need for everyday racism. Now they need to stamp it out because it's instead feeding the FakeNews narrative. That's why Inga and wwww are here insisting people should talk about something else.

Obviously she shouldn't have held a press conference but he did admit to swearing in front of her kid in public. Aside from that, they're both unreliable narrators. Yelling at each other in public in a store in front of kids? Both of them are off. I trust neither one.

She speaks for brown and black people and pregnant women (not him), he would vote for her anyway because he votes for Democrats without caring about anything other than the (D) behind their name.

BarrySanders20 said...

AA says "It's a crazy spiral of norm violation."

When getting accused of such things is currency among a large section of our country, you get more of it. Especially when it justifies an outburst of indignation (outrage!), which brings attention, sympathy, and the kudos, dollars & votes (for pols). Bonus: you get to play your part in demonizing the other side!

It's getting to be that you just can't believe it when people cry racism, even if they are waving that finger.

The woman is pregnant, probably tired, probably stressed, has her kids with her, probably highly upset that this Becky man went out of his way to make a scene when all she wanted to do was to pick up some groceries and quickly get home to make dinner. Maybe she thought “Bitch, if you want a scene I’ll give you a scene!” He calls her a “lazy bitch”? Why?

Seriously though, she should’ve stuck to the truth, the truth was bad enough. He still is an effete Becky.

In this video she was wearing a "Blessed Mama" t-shirt and in another interview she had on a "Best Mom" t-shirt. Between the slight (manipulative) wardrobe variations and repeated phrases - can she say anything other than 1. something about being pregnant and 2. about his 5 minutes of fame? - she is part of the reason the NPC meme was so popular.

Yancey Ward said...

Well, he is a white Republican Cuban-American Democrat- that should be obvious to everyone. And, perhaps he didn't tell her to "go back from where you came from" but instead told her to use the proper checkout lane next time, but we all know what he actually was thinking.

I sure hope you never had a pregnant wife. Spoken like a man who never felt what it feels like to be pregnant. With such a lack of sensitivity, no wonder women aren’t so eager to have one baby after another. If you old men are so worried about the birth rate going down, you should rethink your callous attitude toward pregnant women.

Drago said...

wwww is now in record claiming the well publicized attacks on republicans out in public did not occur because she has had dinner in public with a republican politician and nothing happened.

Kevin said...

He's a Democrat.

A real Democrat would know to let the oppressed black lady in the express line even if she were pushing three carts.

You can watch them at Whole Foods suddenly "forget" something, then remember they really don't need it, as a pretext to step out of line and let a person of color take their spot.

It's a subtle dance, but you can't just tell the black person "sorry for slavery" and start pushing their stuff past yours on the conveyor belt.

That's how produce and egos get bruised.

Drago said...

This fellow, being a lifelong democrat and hispanic, figured as all dems do that they have absolute moral authority to call others out in public with no repercussions.

Unfortunately for him, he does not sit as high in the Identity Intersectionality Totem Pole as he thought he did and the higher sitter upon said pole called him out.

Fortunately for him, she turned out to be a typical lefty "victim" liar, similar to Blasey-Ford, so she was exposed in short order.

All in all a couple of democrat jerks who deserve each other.

Yancey Ward said...

I never confront people in public over the violation of social norms like proper queuing and checkout lane usage- indeed were we in line and I just in front of the lady, I would have allowed her to go in front of me regardless of how many items she had.

However, I am not one bit surprised to find the guy who did confront her is a hard core Democrat- it fits the stereotype of such people.

walter said...

Oh Inga, she sure seems capable of being on her feet for the presser, storming off when he gets the better of it.Another way to go would be to do it from a motorized handicap cart.
Inga just can't help but be conned by the "selfish bitch" turning this into a weepy racialized publicity stunt.

pacwest said...

I wandered into the express lane with about 50 items in the basket once. I missed the sign. The clerk didn't say a thing and started checkling my items. About halfway through I caught the grumbling behind me and realized what I'd done. I turned and apologized to the people in line and got a buck of annoyed "no problem" responses. Apologized again as I left. Shit happens. Both of these people acted badly. Him at the checkout counter, and her by making some big deal racial in incident out of it. People, people, people.

Yancey Ward said...

Pacwest,

I have done it by mistake before, too, but I caught myself before I reached the register. It happens. Once, the express lane was empty and the cashier tried to entice me into the lane, and I refused just because I knew eventually someone would come up behind me before I had finished checking out.

I've been the cheapskate many times myself. But let's be honest, the store isn't making much from our business. The idea that we are entitled to expedited service while picking up our few items over other customers who are buying more is ridiculous.
