Far-left Democrat state Rep. Liz Thomson (D-Bernalillo), who is known for her radical and hate-filled statements, made a flurry of recent tweets bashing conservatives who did not support Obama, claiming it was because of the former president’s skin color.
On Saturday, Thomson shared a tweet that read, “What did Obama do that made Republicans hate him so much?” The lawmaker opined, “He was black.”
That resulted in many on social media calling her out for her bigoted statement, with one person calling her a “racist” and a “bigot.”
State Rep. Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park) wrote in reply, “So by her (@lizthomsonnm) logic, if she doesn’t like, support, endorse, and vote for the Republican Lt Gov candidate, Ant Thornton (@The_NextLG), then she’s racist?” referring to the GOP lt. gov. nominee, who is Black.
Thornton chimed in, “I’m so looking forward to receiving your vote in November!”
In another Tweet questioning why any gay people would be conservative, Thomson wrote, “I never understood being a Log Cabin Republican,” referring to the group made up of gay and lesbian conservatives.
Also over the weekend, Thomson shared scores of anti-Trump, anti-GOP tweets while also sharing conspiracy theories blaming inflation on rich people — not the true cause, which is due to Joe Biden’s economic policies.
Thomson is the chairwoman of the House Health and Human Services Committee, despite her rabidly hateful tweets, some even comparing police officers to the KKK. She also claimed conservatives should be branded with a scarlet “S” for “seditionist.”
