Democrats suffer massive setback as top official gets arrested

The Left has been pushing their radical DEI agenda on the nation for a long time. But now, they seem to have met major resistance.

And Democrats suffered a massive setback after a top official got arrested.

In a dramatic turn of events, Jeremy Hobbs, a prominent LGBTQ and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) activist leader in Georgia, was arrested this week on serious charges related to drug distribution and firearms possession.

Hobbs, who has unsuccessfully run for the Columbus City Council three times, is now facing a slew of criminal charges.

The Columbus Police Department in Georgia released a statement detailing the arrest.

“On Wednesday, June 12, 2024, at 10:00 a.m., following a months-long investigation, the Columbus Police Department’s Special Operations Unit executed a search warrant at a residence in the 4200 block of 16th Avenue. Jeremy Hobbs, 49, was taken into custody without incident.”

During the search of Hobbs’ residence, law enforcement officers discovered a substantial amount of illegal drugs and a firearm.

The officers found 5.4 grams of crack cocaine, 20.7 grams of methamphetamines, 23.8 grams of liquid GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate), and an INA .38 revolver.

Consequently, Hobbs has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of a Schedule I drug with intent to distribute, possession of drug-related objects, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Hobbs has been a well-known figure in the local community, primarily through his leadership of Colgay Pride, an organization advocating for LGBTQ rights.

According to Colgay Pride’s webpage, Hobbs is described as an “organizer and political consultant.”

He served as Columbus, Georgia’s first LGBT liaison to the Columbus, Georgia Mayor’s Commission on Unity, Diversity, and Prosperity under Mayors Teresa Tomlinson and Skip Henderson from 2014 to 2019.

Colgay Pride’s Instagram page is filled with videos of Hobbs promoting various left-wing views and causes.

The organization has been active in organizing adult drag shows and LGBTQ support group events, positioning itself as a significant force in local progressive politics.

Despite his activism and attempts to gain a seat on the city council, Hobbs has been unsuccessful in his political aspirations.

His three failed bids for a council seat have not deterred him from remaining a vocal advocate for his causes. Hobbs has also worked in various capacities within the Columbus city government for over 30 years.

The charges against Hobbs have sent shockwaves through the community, particularly among his supporters and those involved in local LGBTQ and DEI initiatives.

The discovery of significant quantities of methamphetamines, crack cocaine, and GHB—often referred to as a “date rape” drug—raises serious questions about Hobbs’ activities and associations outside his public advocacy work.

The arrest of a high-profile activist like Hobbs underscores the complex and sometimes contradictory lives led by public figures.

While Hobbs has been a staunch advocate for marginalized communities, his alleged involvement in drug distribution and possession of illegal firearms presents a stark contrast to his public persona.

Critics of the left-wing activists have pointed to this incident as indicative of the hypocrisy they believe permeates certain segments of progressive advocacy.

“This arrest shows that the very people preaching about unity and diversity are sometimes the ones involved in criminal activities that tear communities apart,” said a local conservative commentator.

The arrest also raises broader concerns about the integrity of local governance and the vetting process for those seeking public office.
