Modern calls me on the phone whenever he has something REALLY good he’s about to blog.? Modern called me about this.? Thank you, Modern, for making my day.? I have since been glued to the various internet writings of one Sonny Thomas – John Husted’s newest BFF.? Sonny tweeted this about hispanics the other day.

…which got Republican State Senate candidate and Springboro Tea Party endorsed fellow wingnut teabagging queen Shannon Jones running for the hills…..but not John Husted!

Last week, Sen. Jon Husted, R-Kettering, a candidate for Ohio Secretary of State, was weighing whether to attend the event to be held in North Park in Springboro.

?We haven?t made a decision yet if he is going to do it,? Ryan Frazee of the Husted campaign said in an email.

Husted is already listed as a speaker at Sonny’s rally on April 17, based on the apparent appearance Husted made at Sonny’s last rally in October.

Now who is this brave American patriot, Sonny Thomas?? Why, THIS is Sonny Thomas!

Sonny Thomas is a candidate for Warren County Republican precinct committee, founder of the Springboro Tea Party, and purveyor of teabagging greatness so profound, not even John Husted can resist it. Here’s Sonny’s Springboro Tea Party “merchandise” page where you can buy their “best seller” bumper sticker, a Confederate flag with the URL on it…awesome!

Here’s Sonny’s epileptic seizure inducing Myspace page, where Sonny declares…

Salve! I’m a Right Wing Extremist who also promotes damn good music!!!

Here’s Sonny’s campaign website for his brave patriotic run for precinct committee, which helpfully notes Sonny’s position on just about everything, including gay rights.

If someone wishes to have an ‘alternative’ lifestyle, that’s all fine and good. Keep it where it belongs, in the closet!

Sonny’s “About” page at the teabagger website, where Sonny declares he’s a proud Birther.

Sonny Thomas is VEXED!? And Barack Obama is NOT HIS PRESIDENT!? And here’s the helpful resource for all Springboro teabaggers, the “quotes of wisdom and principle” page, which will entertain you to no end….hint, look for the Hitler quotes!

John Husted just can’t say no to Sonny Thomas.? Who could?

  • oh_dirtgirl

    I assume that bumper sticker has a typo, or does he really only support rights for one of the states?

  • modernesquire

    Cannot believe Tim and I didn't notice that…. Good catch! I think we were stunned that he would actually mention that the confederate flag version (he has another using Ohio's State flag) was their “best seller” that we completely missed it.

    He is the living embodiment of the Tea Party.

  • Thief

    Wow. The checks to contribute to the Springboro Tea Party are made out to Sonny Thomas personally!

  • Plumb Right

    Wow! What an interesting compilation of facts very carefully selected from that site.

    I went to both sites including the myspace page and saw actually a fairly balanced mixture of ideas and resources of what makes him up. Even in the quotes section, there are numerous quotes from Federick Douglass, MLK, JFK, Ghandi, Goldwater, various Greek and Roman philosphers and the like. So I saw several groups represented there, many jews, blacks, dems and republicans as well as actors and musicians. Not to mention the Hitler quotes were actually very factual in the content, regardless of the source. So I think you're not totally painting him with a fair brush.

    Not to mention how many liberal music artists he as listed on his myspace page! From Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy to Gloria Estefan and Marvin Gaye! Actually, his music selection is kick ass in my book.

    And some of his merch was creative to say the least. Most of the TP movement stuff I've seen was pretty bland and not much for thought.

    Hard-core right winger, hell yes he is. But I can respect the fact, at least I know where he stands. More than I can say about most members in congress who seem to flip flop whenever the fire gets even close to the pan!! One can still have regard even for an enemy.

    Don't forget to check out Sonny Thomas in his white pride t-shirt on his Myspace page.

  • Lovin this!

    And now the best part so far: on daytondailynews.com, the MOTHER of Sonny Thomas's son is speaking out, saying that his comment is offensive, since their son is part Hispanic. The man has no filter!!

  • PROUDIRISH

    I have seen both Indians and Hispanics wear “Brown Pride” shirts and I have seen African-Americans wear “Black Pride” shirts and the liberals say “woohoo” be proud of who you are….unless of course you are an American of European decent, then apparently you are supposed to be ashamed of who you are. RIDICULOUS!

  • ProudIrish

    The point I was really trying to convey is that to be proud of a color is ridiculous anyway. Anyone wearing one of the shirts I mentioned is a racist and moron. Don't be proud to be black, brown or white..be proud to be Irish, Italian, Mexican, German or whatever. That's where the heritage is to be proud of, not a skin color.

  • ProudIrish

    And do you not find it strange at all that DDN disabled all comments to the story? Perhaps because they know the reporting was less than accurate. According to the police report the child's mother filed (it's public record) she clearly states that she and the boy are caucasion and not of any hispanic origin or descent. It seems obvious to me that the woman had a reporter show up at her door and she saw it as a chance to further smear Mr. Thomas and try to grab “15 min of fame” herself. Very sad.

  • hybeerianwife

    I personally worked w/ s.thomas and can vouch for the fact that he is a misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobic, sad, hateful little man who commonly refers to ALL females as “bitches”. It is a wonder no one has beaten him to death. He desires power, and suffers from delusions and “short mans disease”. It is nice to see this vermin exposed for what he really is.

  • Bob C

    This is the Sonny I know!! Ask about sonny on daytonbands.com, no love there either
