Texas Democrat Arrested for Race-Hate Hoax Incident

A Democrat running for a position in Fort Bend County, Texas, has been arrested and charged with faking a race-hate crime that he blamed on unnamed Republicans.

Taral Patel is a candidate for Fort Bend County commissioner, but made news when he claimed that he was sent racist, anti-Hindu threats online.

It was a hate crime, Patel claimed.

Oooor was it?

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Per The Blaze:

In Sept. 2023, Taral Patel lambasted his political opponents over the vile racism sent to him on social media.

“As your Democratic candidate for County Commissioner, I am always open to criticism of my policy positions and stances on issues. However, when my Republican opponents supporters’ decide to hurl #racist, #anti-immigrant, #Hinduphobic, or otherwise disgusting insults at my family, faith community, colleagues, and me – that crosses a line,” he wrote.

“Fort Bend County’s diversity has made us all stronger, and these hateful images are from a place of deep and misguided fear,” he added, “incited by people like former President Donald Trump and today’s extremist Republican party fear that immigrants are ‘taking their jobs’ and setting out to hurt our own communities.”

On Wednesday, Patel was arrested.

Sadly, this race-hate hoaxer won the Democrat primary.

Still arrested, though.

Investigators said most of the posts that are suspected to have been secretly written by Patel were on Facebook from Oct. 2022 until May 2024.

The Democrat was given a $20,000 bond for the felony charge and a $2,500 bond for the misdemeanor charge. He had previously worked in President Joe Biden’s administration.

Patel has not yet responded to requests for comment about the arrest, but a legal expert told KPRC-TV that he is still allowed to run in the election. If he voluntarily resigns, then Democrats would be forced to run a write-in candidate for the election.

Yep. Still arrested.
