In a column appearing Dec. 30, 2012, in the Daily Republic, Thomas Sowell wrote down some of his random thoughts.
One of those “thoughts” was to compare President Obama to Jim Jones, who was responsible for the murders and mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. That comment was totally ridiculous and unworthy of a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. That is the kind of stupid comment I would expect from one of the right-wing talk radio idiots, not from an educated man.
His is just one example of the kind of inflammatory rhetoric that stokes the irrational hatred many people have of Obama. I used to respect (while not necessarily agreeing with) Mr. Sowell’s views when he explained why he disagreed with President Obama’s economic and social policies. However, the above-mentioned random thought makes me think Mr. Sowell is just another irrational Obama hater to whom it is not worth paying attention.
