Democrat Politician ARRESTED For Alarming Reason

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

A former Biden appointee and Democratic contender in Texas was placed under arrest on suspicion of posting racist remarks about himself on multiple social media platforms.

Taral Patel, 30, is a candidate running for county commissioner in Fort Bend, Texas. He was charged and brought in last week after the incumbent, Andy Meyers, launched an inquiry into his campaign after Patel said that his followers were insulting him on social media based on his race. Following Patel’s Facebook post in October of last year claiming that he and his family were the subjects of a smear campaign, the Fort Bend District Attorney’s Office launched an investigation.

“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 at the time. “Fort Bend County’s diversity has made us all stronger, and these hateful images… are from a place of deep and misguided fear – 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.”

According to the New York Post, Patel is Indian and Hindhu, and he has been called a “monkey” and a “subhuman” in some of the attacks.

According to his political website, Patel accepted a number of prominent positions soon after President Joe Biden assumed office, which he has used to advance his campaign. He was named by the president to the White House Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Committee and the Office of White House Liaison after working in the Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division.

Meyers informed a local ABC affiliate that he recognized one user with the name “Antonio Scalywag” that had previously attacked him, which made him skeptical of the abusive tweets. Subpoenas were issued to Facebook and Google, which turned up the information that led investigators back to Patel: his address, phone number, bank account information, and credit card details.

According to the Post, Patel was charged with felony impersonation and a Class A misdemeanor for misrepresenting his identity after being taken into custody by the Texas Rangers last week. He paid $22,500 for both counts, and on July 22nd, he is scheduled to return to court.

The former diversity appointee is now one of many young political operatives close to Biden that have been sacked or charged with crimes for posting offensive content online. Sam Brinton, a non-binary former employee of the Department of Energy, was fired in 2021 when it was revealed that he had utilized his position to obtain access to an airport’s baggage sorting section in order to steal women’s apparel. Since then, he has been accused of felonious grand larceny.

Former Biden Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Nejwa Ali was let go when internet investigators revealed she had previously worked as a spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, an organization that has applauded the attack on Israel on October 7, 2023.
